Ron Paul: The company we keep

Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs, exposes Ron Paul’s bigotry with what she terms a “bombshell“ relating to racist writings in his newsletters. Scroll down though her post to read the actual text. She provides links to American Spectator and Conservatives Network as well as the Weekly Standard, all of which substantiate the allegations. In a 1996 interview with the Dallas Morning News, Ron Paul was asked about his newsletters. That interview, in which he defended them, can be read here.

Check them out and decide for yourself.

Due to the volume of emails generated by adherents on the Daily Paul whenever anything other than unquestioning devotion of Ron Paul appears, we are closing our comment section for this post only, since it is difficult to moderate all of the responses coming in, many using profanity, with links  back to the Daily Paul.  Although we obviously have more than a passing interest in the political scene, Christmas is upon us and this is the last week to work in shopping along with the means to support such ventures — toiling at the day job. Weighed against the kids — feeding and gifting them — Paulbots lose.

During his 2008 presidential bid, Ron Paul was endorsed by and received a campaign donation — which he refused to return — from Don Black, founder of Stormfront, America’s leading white supremacist/hate site. It’s still possible to find zealous information about Paul there — along with vicious and deceptive postings about his GOP opponents using in-tandem quotes that have never actually been uttered. The Paul campaign spent weeks acting as though the endorsement and Stormfront’s donation weren’t an issue. Black, who has served time in a federal prison, has been a Grand Wizard in the KKK and member of the American Nazi Party.

In the 1988 presidential election, Ron Paul ran as the Libertarian Party candidate, qualifying for the ballot in 46 states. Paul won 0.5% of the vote. He should do at least that well against Obama.
