share save 120 16 Ron Paul Responds to Bigot Revolution

1666254506 7b206d88b5 o Ron Paul Responds to Bigot Revolution

Ron Paul responds to some of the explosive charges that Flap had here.

“The quotations in The New Republic article are not mine and do not represent what I believe or have ever believed. I have never uttered such words and denounce such small-minded thoughts.

“In fact, I have always agreed with Martin Luther King, Jr. that we should only be concerned with the content of a person’s character, not the color of their skin. As I stated on the floor of the U.S. House on April 20, 1999: ‘I rise in great respect for the courage and high ideals of Rosa Parks who stood steadfastly for the rights of individuals against unjust laws and oppressive governmental policies.’

“This story is old news and has been rehashed for over a decade. It’s once again being resurrected for obvious political reasons on the day of the New Hampshire primary.

“When I was out of Congress and practicing medicine full-time, a newsletter was published under my name that I did not edit. Several writers contributed to the product. For over a decade, I have publically taken moral responsibility for not paying closer attention to what went out under my name.”

The main credibility problem is the fact that these newsletters were written over a period of many years. Was Paul, in fact, a naive, absentee overseer of these writings under his own name.

Where was Ron Paul? Can anyone be this negligent?

So, excuse me Ron Paul but this does does NOT pass the BS test.

But, the New Republic piece goes beyond a discussion of the many newsletters published under Ron Paul’s name over the many years.

What’s more, Paul’s connections to extremism go beyond the newsletters. He has given extensive interviews to the magazine of the John Birch Society, and has frequently been a guest of Alex Jones, a radio host and perhaps the most famous conspiracy theorist in America. Jones–whose recent documentary, Endgame: Blueprint for Global Enslavement, details the plans of George Pataki, David Rockefeller, and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, among others, to exterminate most of humanity and develop themselves into “superhuman” computer hybrids able to “travel throughout the cosmos”–estimates that Paul has appeared on his radio program about 40 times over the past twelve years.

Ron Paul is a bigoted extremist no matter how he tries to repackage himself .

share save 120 16 Video Shows Irans Threat to United States Navy in Persian Gulf

0 Video Shows Irans Threat to United States Navy in Persian Gulf

Newly released video shows Iran Revolutionary Guard small boats confronting United States Naval vessels on routine patrol in the Persian Gulf.

Why?

President Bush leaves this week to visit Persian Gulf States and Iran wants hegemony over the region as the BAD BOY on the block.

President Bush on Tuesday denounced the incident as a “provocative act.”

“It is a dangerous situation,” Bush said during a White House news conference. “They should not have done it, pure and simple. … I don’t know what their thinking was, but I’m telling you what my thinking was. I think it was a provocative act.”

One of these days Iran will either intentionally or recklessly provoke an armed response and the proxy war that America and Iran have been waging will become overt.

share save 120 16 Ron Paul Watch: The BIGOT Revolution

1666254506 7b206d88b5 o Ron Paul Watch: The BIGOT Revolution

Why is THIS news? It was a matter of time before someone found the historical Ron Paul written record.

Flap has pounded Ron Paul for weeks over his Donald Black, David Duke and Stormfront.org (White Supremacist/Neo-Nazi) ties – his Jew problem.

But, here are some key graphs:

  • Such views on race also inflected the newsletters’ commentary on foreign affairs. South Africa’s transition to multiracial democracy was portrayed as a “destruction of civilization” that was “the most tragic [to] ever occur on that continent, at least below the Sahara”; and, in March 1994, a month before Nelson Mandela was elected president, one item warned of an impending “South African Holocaust.”
  • Martin Luther King Jr. earned special ire from Paul’s newsletters, which attacked the civil rights leader frequently, often to justify opposition to the federal holiday named after him. (“What an infamy Ronald Reagan approved it!” one newsletter complained in 1990. “We can thank him for our annual Hate Whitey Day.”) In the early 1990s, a newsletter attacked the “X-Rated Martin Luther King” as a “world-class philanderer who beat up his paramours,” “seduced underage girls and boys,” and “made a pass at” fellow civil rights leader Ralph Abernathy. One newsletter ridiculed black activists who wanted to rename New York City after King, suggesting that “Welfaria,” “Zooville,” “Rapetown,” “Dirtburg,” and “Lazyopolis” were better alternatives. The same year, King was described as “a comsymp, if not an actual party member, and the man who replaced the evil of forced segregation with the evil of forced integration.”

On the Jews and Israel:

  • The newsletters display an obsession with Israel; no other country is mentioned more often in the editions I saw, or with more vitriol. A 1987 issue of Paul’s Investment Letter called Israel “an aggressive, national socialist state,” and a 1990 newsletter discussed the “tens of thousands of well-placed friends of Israel in all countries who are willing to wok [sic] for the Mossad in their area of expertise.” Of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, a newsletter said, “Whether it was a setup by the Israeli Mossad, as a Jewish friend of mine suspects, or was truly a retaliation by the Islamic fundamentalists, matters little.”

Ron Paul’s spokesman, Jesse Barton denies Ron Paul’s direct involvement in many of the newsletters which carry Ron Paul’s name and where many bigoted quotes are found.

Who are they trying to fool?

But it is difficult to imagine how Paul could allow material consistently saturated in racism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, and conspiracy-mongering to be printed under his name for so long if he did not share these views. In that respect, whether or not Paul personally wrote the most offensive passages is almost beside the point. If he disagreed with what was being written under his name, you would think that at some point–over the course of decades–he would have done something about it.

The Ron Paul Revolution is a RUSE. It’s origins are not in libertarianism but the FAR RIGHT hate crowd.
