For months, I have heard Ron Paul supporters complain that they were being ignored by the media only to then whine when they did and discovered Paul's horrific record on race. The Paulistas have responded by minimizing Paul's record to a few sentences which they claim he has repudiated. The reality is that his denials are not credible and he continues to have ties to and engage white supremacist organizations. Even worse, Paul endorsed a white supremacist for President in 2008.
"White People" Unfairly Condemned
Every year new groups organize to demand their “rights.” White people who organize and expect the same attention as other groups are quickly and viciously condemned as dangerous bigots. Hispanic, black, and Jewish caucuses can exist in the U.S. Congress, but not a white caucus, demonstrating the absurdity of this approach for achieving rights for everyone. "
Ron Paul - Freedom Under Seige.
Recently, Ron Paul minimized the offensive aspect of the newsletter as probably ten sentences out of, you know, 10,000 pages for
all I know." (CBS
News) Below are some newsletter
excerpts published by The New Republic on race alone (not included are
disturbing comments about Jews, Gays and support for the militia movement).
“A Special Issue on Racial Terrorism” analyzes the Los Angeles riots of 1992: “Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks three days after rioting began. ... What if the checks had never arrived? No doubt the blacks would have fully privatized the welfare state through continued looting. But they were paid off and the violence subsided.”
SIDE NOTE: HOW COULD HE NOT BE AWARE OF "A SPECIAL ISSUE ON RACIAL TERRORISM"
The November 1990 issue of the Political Report had kind wordsfor David Duke.
This December 1990 newsletter describes Martin Luther King Jr. as “a world-class adulterer” who “seduced underage girls and boys” and “replaced the evil of forced segregation with the evil of forced integration.”
A February 1991 newsletter attacks “The X-Rated Martin Luther King.”
An October 1990 edition of the Political Report ridicules black activists, led by Al Sharpton, for demonstrating at the Statue of Liberty in favor of renaming New York City after Martin Luther King. The newsletter suggests that “Welfaria,” “Zooville,” “Rapetown,” “Dirtburg,”and “Lazyopolis ” would be better alternatives—and says, “Next time, hold that demonstration at a food stamp bureau or a crack house.”
A May 1990 issue of the Ron Paul Political Report cites Jared Taylor, who six months later would go onto found the eugenicist and white supremacist periodical American Renaissance.
The January 1993 issue of the Survival Report worries about America’s “disappearing white majority.”
The July 1992 Ron Paul Political Report declares, “Jury verdicts, basketball games, and even music are enough to set off black rage, it seems,” and defends David Duke. The author of the newsletter—presumably Paul—writes, “My youngest son is starting his fourth year in medical school. He tells me there would be no way to persuade his fellow students of the case for economic liberty.”
A March 1993 Survival Report describes Bill Clinton’s supposedly “illegitimate children, black and white: ‘woods colts’ in backwoods slang.”
Paul also denies responsibility for a fundraising letter connected with the newsletters in which he wars o "the coming race war in our big cities. "

Candidate's comments on blacks questioned
Author: Catalina Camia; Washington Bureau of The Dallas Morning News
Dr. Paul, who is running in Texas' 14th Congressional District, defended his writings in an interview Tuesday. He said they were being taken out of context.. . . Dr. Paul wrote in a 1992 issue of the Ron Paul Political Report: "If you have ever been robbed by a black teenaged male, you know how unbelievably fleet of foot they can be."Dr. Paul, who served in Congress in the late 1970s and early 1980s, said Tuesday that he has produced the newsletter since 1985 and distributes it to an estimated 7,000 to 8,000 subscribers. . .. Dr. Paul also said he did not know how his newsletter came to be ! included in a directory by the Heritage Front, a neo-Nazi group based in Canada. The newsletter was listed on the Internet under the directory's heading "Racialists and Freedom Fighters." . . . Dr. Paul denied suggestions that he was a racist and said he was not evoking stereotypes when he wrote the columns. He said they should be r! ead and quoted in their entirety to avoid misrepresentation.Dr. Paul also took exception to the comments of Mr. Bledsoe, saying that the voters in the 14th District and the people who know him best would be the final judges of his character. "If someone challenges your character and takes the interpretation of the NAACP as proof of a man's character, what kind of a world do you live in?" Dr. Paul asked.In the interview, he did not deny he made the statement about the swiftness of black men. "If you try to catch someone that has stolen a purse from you, there is no chance to catch them," Dr. Paul said.He also said the comment about black men in the nation's capital was made while writing about a 1992 study produced by the National Center on Incarceration and Alternatives, a criminal justice think tank based in Virginia.Citing statistics from the study, Dr. Paul then concluded in his column: `Given the inef! ficiencies of what DC laughingly calls the criminal justice system, I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal."
"These aren't my figures," Dr. Paul said Tuesday. "That is the assumption you can gather from" the report

Newsletter excerpts offer ammunition to Paul's opponent/GOP hopeful quoted on race, crime
ALAN BERNSTEIN, Houston Chronicle Political Writer Staff
Paul, a Republican obstetrician from Surfside, said Wednesday he opposes racism and that his written commentaries about blacks came in the context of ""current events and statistical reports of the time."
July 29, 1996
Paul defended newsletter comments he made about retiring Texas Congresswoman Barbara Jordan in which he said she was "the archetypal half-educated victimologist character," a moron, a fraud and used "her race and sex protect her from criticism" Paul said " such opinions represented our clear philosophical difference.” (Think Progress)
RON PAUL ONLY MEMBER OF CONGRESS TO VOTE AGAINST ROSA PARKS MEDIAL
In opposition, Paul argued:
However, I oppose the Congressional Gold Medal for Rosa Parks Act because authorizing $30,000 of taxpayer money is neither constitutional nor, in the spirit of Rosa Parks who is widely recognized and admired for standing up against an overbearing government infringing on individual rights.
Because of my continuing and uncompromising opposition to appropriations not authorized within the enumerated powers of the Constitution, I must remain consistent in my defense of a limited government whose powers are explicitly delimited under the enumerated powers of the Constitution--a Constitution, which only months ago, each Member of Congress, swore to uphold.
Each of these arguments is bogus as such medals were bogus. In terms of their Constitutionality, the very first Congress awarded such a medal to none other than George Washington. Paul is also lying about the money since it is self-funded. (See explanation) Interestingly, though, these arguments did not stop Paul from backing a medal for the Boy Scouts who received a portion of the its proceeds. (See explanation).
PAUL "GHOST WRITER" EMERGES AS CANDIDATES SEEKS TO DISTANCE HIMSELF FROM NEWSLETTER
“I could never say this in the campaign, but those words weren’t really written by me. It wasn’t my language at all. Other people help me with my newsletter as I travel around. I think the one on Barbara Jordan was the saddest thing, because Barbara and I served together and actually she was a delightful lady.” Paul says that item ended up there because “we wanted to do something on affirmative action, and it ended up in the newsletter and became personalized. I never personalize anything.”
His reasons for keeping this a secret are harder to understand: “They were never my words, but I had some moral responsibility for them . . . I actually really wanted to try to explain that it doesn’t come from me directly, but they [campaign aides] said that’s too confusing. ‘It appeared in your letter and your name was on that letter and therefore you have to live with it.’”
RON PAUL ONLY VOTE AGAINST
RESOLUTION HONORING 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF CIVIL RIGHTS ACT
Click here to edit this text.
Mr. Speaker, I rise to explain my objection to H.Res. 676. I certainly join my colleagues in urging Americans to celebrate the progress this country has made in race relations. However, contrary to the claims of the supporters of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the sponsors of H.Res. 676, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 did not improve race relations or enhance freedom. Instead, the forced integration dictated by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 increased racial tensions while diminishing individual liberty.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 gave the federal government unprecedented power over the hiring, employee relations, and customer service practices of every business in the country. The result was a massive violation of the rights of private property and contract, which are the bedrocks of free society. The federal government has no legitimate authority to infringe on the rights of private property owners to use their property as they please and to form (or not form) contracts with terms mutually agreeable to all parties. The rights of all private property owners, even those whose actions decent people find abhorrent, must be respected if we are to maintain a free society.
This expansion of federal power was based on an erroneous interpretation of the congressional power to regulate interstate commerce. The framers of the Constitution intended the interstate commerce clause to create a free trade zone among the states, not to give the federal government regulatory power over every business that has any connection with interstate commerce.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 not only violated the
Constitution and reduced individual liberty; it also failed to achieve its
stated goals of promoting racial harmony and a color-blind society. Federal
bureaucrats and judges cannot read minds to see if actions are motivated by
racism. Therefore, the only way the federal government could ensure an employer
was not violating the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was to ensure that the racial
composition of a business's workforce matched the racial composition of a bureaucrat
or judge's defined body of potential employees. Thus, bureaucrats began forcing
employers to hire by racial quota. Racial quotas have not contributed to racial
harmony or advanced the goal of a color-blind society. Instead, these quotas
encouraged racial balkanization, and fostered racial strife.
Of course, America has made great strides in race relations
over the past forty years. However, this progress is due to changes in public
attitudes and private efforts. Relations between the races have improved
despite, not because of, the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
In conclusion, Mr. Speaker, while I join the sponsors of
H.Res. 676 in promoting racial harmony and individual liberty, the fact is the
Civil Rights Act of 1964 did not accomplish these goals. Instead, this law
unconstitutionally expanded federal power, thus reducing liberty. Furthermore,
by prompting raced-based quotas, this law undermined efforts to achieve a
color-blind society and increased racial strife. Therefore, I must oppose
. . . . A VIEW HE STILL HOLDS . . .
PAUL REJECTS REASON FOR CIVIL WAR AND MEETS REGULARLY WITH WHITE SUPREMACISTS
NEO-NAZI LEADER CLAIMS
RON PAUL REGULARLY
MEETS WITH WHITE SUPREMACISTS
I have kept quiet about the Ron Paul campaign for a while, because I didn't see any need to say anything that would cause any trouble. However, reading the latest release from his campaign spokesman, I am compelled to tell the truth about Ron Paul's extensive involvement in white nationalism.
Both Congressman Paul and his aides regularly meet with members of the Stormfront set, American Renaissance, the Institute for Historic Review, and others at the Tara Thai restaurant in Arlington, Virginia, usually on Wednesdays. This is part of a dinner that was originally organized by Pat Buchanan, Sam Francis and Joe Sobran, and has since been mostly taken over by the Council of Conservative Citizens.
I have attended these dinners, seen Paul and his aides there, and been invited to his offices in Washington to discuss policy.
For his spokesman to call white racialism a "small ideology" and claim white activists are "wasting their money" trying to influence Paul is ridiculous. Paul is a white nationalist of the Stormfront type who has always kept his racial views and his views about world Judaism quiet because of his political position.
I don't know that it is necessarily good for Paul to "expose" this. However, he really is someone with extensive ties to white nationalism and for him to deny that in the belief he will be more respectable by denying it is outrageous -- and I hate seeing people in the press who denounce racialism merely because they think it is not fashionable.

RON PAUL CLAIMS CIVIL WAR WAS WRONG LINCOLN SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT THE SLAVES
In 2008, Ron Paul did not endorse Republican nominee John McCain, but rather Paul Endorsed Constitutional Party Candidate Chuck Baldwin. Baldwin is a neo-Confederate New World Order conspiracy theorist who praises the confederacy and its leaders, Robert E. Lee andStonewall Jackson, and calls the Civil War the “War of Northern Aggression.” Baldwin writes a weekly column on the white supremacist site Vdare and is a proud supporter of American militia movements.
As reported by Reason magazine, Baldwin believes that "i America wishes to remain a free and independent republic, if this nation truly desires future peace and prosperity, and if we genuinely aspire to remain a blessed and protected land, we must quickly throw off this foolish infatuation with multiculturalism, which is nothing more than an attempt to de- Christianize our country, and humbly return to the God of our fathers!"
RON PAUL-WHITE POWER ALLIANCE
PAUL INVITES NEO-CONFEDERATE SECESSIONIST TO TESTIFY AS FIRST WITNESS BEFORE HIS COMMITTEE
Ron Paul's economic Rx:
a Southern secessionist
February 9, 2011
The Republican takeover of the House put a chairman's gavel
in the hands of Rep. Ron
Paul of Texas, the gadflyGOP presidential
candidate with a cult following. On Wednesday, he used
that gavel for the first time - to remarkable effect.
The hearing itself was lively - based on Paul's desire to
abolish the Federal Reserve and bring back the gold standard - but what really
stood out was Chairman Paul's leadoff witness: a Southern secessionist.
The "short bio" the witness provided with his
testimony omitted salient pieces of his resume, including his 2006 book, "Lincoln
Unmasked: What You're Not Supposed to Know About Dishonest
But the subcommittee's ranking Democrat, William Lacy Clay(Mo.)
did some homework and learned more about the witness, Thomas DiLorenzo of
Loyola University Maryland.DiLorenzo, the congressman told the committee, had
called Lincoln "the first
dictator"and a "mass
murderer" and decreed that "Hitler was a
Lincolnite." Worse, Clay charged, "you worked for a Southern
nationalist organization." "The League of the South is a
neo-Confederate group that advocates for a second southern secession and a
society dominated by European Americans."
. . . . As it turns out, "this thing" called
the League of the South Institute was listing DiLorenzo on its Web site as
recently as 2008 as an "affiliated scholar." A secessionist Web
identified DiLorenzo the same way last year when it published an interview with
DiLorenzo in which he is quoted as saying "secession is not only possible
but necessary if any part of America is ever to be considered 'the land of the
free' in any meaningful sense."
DiLorenzo, a self-proclaimed historical revisionist, is
entitled to say whatever he likes. But it raises doubts about Ron Paul and his
causes if this is the best he can come up with for his first act as chairman of
the Financial Services Committee's monetary policy subcommittee.
See Southern Poverty Law Center's Discussion of DiLorenzo and the League of the South
PAUL USES WHITE SUPREMACISTS TO DISTRIBUTE COLUMN AND RAISE MONEY
Ron Paul's campaign uses Willis Carto for fundraising
and publication of Ron Paul's columns.
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center Carto
"has been a major figure on the American radical right since the 1950s,
when he set up his anti-Semitic Liberty Lobby with offices not far from the
White House. Although at one time he had access to leading politicians, Carto
eventually became infamous for his pro-Nazi and rabidly anti-Jewish views and
lost those connections. In 1978, he founded the first major American
Holocaust-denial outfit, the Institute for Historical Review. Throughout his
career, Carto has been known for his anti-Semitism, anti-black racism and the
wild alternative health claims regularly made in his various
Carto also founded the Populist Party in 1984
which ran David Duke as a presidential candidate and the American Free
Press, which SPLC labels as a hate group. According to the New York
Times, Paul uses
the mailing lists to Carto's white supremacist publications to raise money for
his 2012 campaign.
Ron Paul also turns to Don Black is a former Grand Wizard of
the Ku Klux Klan, a current member of the American Nazi Party, and the owner
and operator of the white supremacist site Stormfront. Black (pictured
above with his son and Paul) regularly organizes “money bombs” for both Ron
Paul and his son Rand Paul.
Black told the New York Times that it was Paul’s newsletters that
inspired him to be a supporter: "That was a big part of his constituency,
the paleoconservatives who think there are race problems in this country. "
See Black's and Carto's SPLC Profile.
BOTTOM LINE - RON PAUL IS A RACIST NUT. AND IF YOU STILL SUPPORT HIM AFTER READING THESE MATERIALS,
YOU MOST LIKELY ARE TOO.
