"The most obvious news alert of the week, Ron Paul’s former secretary, who supports his candidacy for President, admits Ron Paul knew all about those racist newsletters."
GAWKER posted a "Make Your Own Racist Newsletter with Our Magnetic Ron Paul Kit" which is pretty much brilliant!
Energized by The New Republic’s new excerpts from the racist, homophobic, anti-Semitic conspiracy newsletter published (though not specifically authored) by Ron Paul in the early 1990s? Disappointed that they’re no longer being published? Unable to hire Lew Rockwell to write most of it for you? Fret not, alternate Vince Foster death theory enthusiasts: just use the Gawker-brand Ron Paul Magnetic Newsletter Kit to make your own!
One People’s Project notes that Ron is still taking campaign contributions from white supremacists.
Remember in 2008 when Ron Paul was catching hell for accepting a $500 donation from Stormfront owner Don Black? Well since that time Virginia Abernethy, board member and currently vice-presidential candidate of the White Supremacist political party American Third Position (A3P) has donated over $4000 to Rep. Paul, $2275 for his currently presidential campaign alone. To all his supporters trying to defend him against the racism charge, it just got harder.
Despite the controversy that had arisen in in Presidential run in 2008 from accepting a campaign donations from white supremacists, Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) is again receiving donations from those circles, most notably from a longtime supporter who serves on the board and is also the vice-presidential nominee of a political party whose mission statement states they “will provide the leadership and representation demanded by the majority white American population.”
Virginia Abernethy a retired college professor who is closely associated with the white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens, contributed a total $2275 last year to Ron Paul’s Presidential campaign, according to Federal Election Commission records. Beginning in May, her last contribution was in September.
In June, Abernethy joined the board of American Third Position (A3P), which was founded in May 2009 as the “Golden State Party” by a California neo-Nazi group called Freedom 14, who changed their name and reorganized after their former chairman Tyler Cole was revealed to have been a convicted felon. Political Cesspool host James Edwards, who is also a supporter of Rep. Paul and was once supposed to have him on as a guest on his show in 2006, is also a board member. On Jan. 12, A3P announced that Merlin Miller is their nominee for President with Abernethy as his running mate. “Each nation has the right to maintain the identity upon which it was founded,” A3P said in a press release. Our slate of candidates is morally, ethically and intellectually above those offered by the Democrats or Republicans.”
Abernethy has donated to Rep. Paul and his son Rand in the past. She contributed a total of $2500 to Rep. Paul’s presidential campaign in 2008 as well as $500 to Rand’s successful run for Senator of Kentucky in 2010, as did A3P Chairman William Johnson in 2009. She has also donated to Pat Buchanan’s 2000 presidential campaign as well as to a 1999 congressional run for Christina Jeffrey, who in 1995 was fired as the House of Representatives historian by then-Speaker Newt Gingrich when she that complained Nazi views weren’t represented in a Holocaust course.
During the holiday season, the New York Times wrote an article about Rep. Paul that addressed controversial newsletters that was racially charged and the support from white supremacists that he had enjoyed in the past, noting the $500 donation to his 2008 run that he received from Stormfront owner Don Black. In it, it was noted that Paul did not explicitly disavow their support, saying, “If they want to endorse me, they’re endorsing what I do or say — it has nothing to do with endorsing what they say.”
"Ron Paul has recently suggested there was only a “total of about eight or ten sentences” of “bad stuff” in the newsletters that he regularly used to publish under his name. This assertion was patently false: As TNR has shown, the newsletters contained dozens of statements marked by bigotry and conspiratorial thinking. In light of Paul’s continuing evasions about the newsletters, and with hopes of clarifying the matter definitively, TNR is now making more of them available.”
~ OH HEY! Just reading through more Ron Paul propaganda. You know.. The racist, homophobic, anti-Semitic, conspiracy building shit newsletters that he published and made million from for over 30 years? Yeah, those.
The Newly released Ron Paul newsletters so far include the following pressing issues:
Yes.. I know Paul fans:
"HE DIDN’T WRITE THEM AND THERE’S PROOF!!"
"THE BIG GOV REPTILIAN MARXIST SOCIALIST NEO-CON ZIONIST PRO BIOTIC ACROBAT AMOEBIC MEDIA CONTROLLED LAME STREAM SHEEP DOG PEOPLE ARE SMEARING HIM!!!"
*I’ll finish reading the rest of the newsletters later because my head is about to explode.
p.s- I’m glad Ron Paul is old and I will leave it at that.. (plus the dick eating- he should continue doing that.)
Even though Ron Paul is against civil rights, hate crime legislation, and sexual harassment laws, he really does care about discrimination!
What a kind, non-racist, white people loving, sack of shit. Aww…
*please die. xox
"I’m waiting for the day when we can say, "We’re all Austrians now!"
I’m sure his buddies at stormfront are very proud: http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t856833/

Description: Psychotic Kook and M.D., Mental Deficient, ron paul, a bible Kook, Evolution Denier and Moron, spins his crazy nonsense and fear mongering about the coming collapse of America’s monetary system and his Idiotic recommendations to buy gold, which Lunatic and Imbecile MoRon paul has been using to profit from for decades, even though there are absolutely no signs of a monetary collapse whatsoever, and only abounding evidence to the contrary. MoRon paul is an unelectable religious Kook and Buffoon who ought to be exported to Iran, where his Psychotic religious beliefs would blend in with the clerics and backwards primitives who still believe Reality is not real, and their self-righteous man-made hogwash is.
"Ron Paul (pictured) has a lot of racist supporters, including white supremacist website Stormfront, conspiracy theorist group the John Birch Society and neo-Confederates who believe that the South was right during the civil war. And the support is mutual. While Paul would like you to believe that his connection to racism ended with his newsletters, he has continued to address this group well into the 21st century. Take a look at Ron Paul’s top 10 most-racist supporters.
Willis Carto is a holocaust denier, Hitler admirer and a white supremacist. A former campaigner for segregationist candidate George Wallace, Carto founded the National Alliance with William Pierce, the author of the “Turner Diaries,” which is credited for inspiring Timothy McVeigh. Carto founded the Populist Party in 1984 and ran David Duke as a presidential candidate. Carto also founded the American Free Press, which is labeled as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), where Paul’s column runs. Paul has not sued Carto for running his column or explained how it wound up in a white supremacist publication. The New York Times writes that Paul used the subscription list to a white supremacist publication of Carto’s to solicit donations.
Chuck Baldwin is a neo-Confederate New World Order conspiracy theorist who praises the confederacy and its leaders, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall 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. Baldwin is also an Islamaphobe and homophobe.
Not only did Baldwin endorse Paul for president in 2007, but Paul returned the favor, endorsing Baldwin, who he calls his “friend,” for president in 2008. While Paul was quick to criticize Michele Bachmann for her Islamaphobia, he has said nothing about Baldwin’s, the man he endorsed for president. Here are some choice quotes from Baldwin:
I believe homosexuality is moral perversion and deserves no special consideration under the law.
I believe the South was right in the War Between the States, and I am not a racist.
I believe there is a conspiracy by elitists within government and big business to steal America’s independence.
The Muslim religion has been a bloody, murderous religion since its inception.
Don Black is a former Grand Wizard of the Klu Klux Klan, a current member of the American Nazi Party, and the owner and operator of the white supremacist site Stormfront. Black regularly organizes “money bombs” for Ron and Rand Paul and has even taken a picture with Ron Paul, who refused to return donations from Black and Stormfront even with the political tradition of not accepting donations from people who seem unfit. Black, who was sentenced to three years in jail for trying to overthrow the Caribbean country of Dominica in 1981, supports Paul through his Twitter account and on message boards for Stormfront.
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.
Lew Rockwell is a close friend and adviser of Paul’s who served as his congressional chief of staff between 1978 and 1982, worked as a paid consultant for Paul for more than 20 years, and was an editor and alleged ghost writer for his racist newsletters. Rockwell formed the Ludwig Von Mises Institute, which Paul still has a close working relationship with.
The Ludwig Von Mises Institute is listed by the SPLC as a neo-Confederate organization. They also add that Rockwell said that the Civil War “transformed the American regime from a federalist system based on freedom to a centralized state that circumscribed liberty in the name of public order” and that the Civil Rights Movement was the “involuntary servitude” of (presumably white) business owners. Rockwell was listed as one of the racist League of the South’s founding members but denies membership. Rockwell regularly posts articles on his website, attacking a New World Order conspiracy.
David Duke is a former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan and candidate for Governor of Louisiana. Duke is also a New World Order conspiracy theorist who believes that Jews control the Federal Reserve. On his website, Duke proudly boasts about the endorsements and kind words that Paul gave him in his newsletters and in turn endorses Paul for president:
Duke’s platform called for tax cuts, no quotas, no affirmative action, no welfare, and no busing…
To many voters, this seems like just plain good sense. Duke carried baggage from his past, the voters were willing to overlook that. If he had been afforded the forgiveness an ex-communist gets, he might have won.
…David Broder, also of the Post and equally liberal, writing on an entirely different subject, had it right: ‘No one wants to talk about race publicly, but if you ask any campaign consultant or pollster privately, the sad reality that a great many working-class and middle class white Americans are far less hostile to the rich and their tax breaks than they are to the poor and minorities with their welfare and affirmative action programs.”
Liberals are notoriously blind to the sociological effects of their own programs. David Duke was hurt by his past. How many more Dukes are waiting in the wings without such a taint?
“Duke lost the election,” it said, “but he scared the blazes out of the Establishment.” In 1991, a newsletter asked, “Is David Duke’s new prominence, despite his losing the gubernatorial election, good for anti-big government forces?” The conclusion was that “our priority should be to take the anti-government, anti-tax, anti-crime, anti-welfare loafers, anti-race privilege, anti-foreign meddling message of Duke, and enclose it in a more consistent package of freedom.”
Duke also gave advice to Paul on his website, saying:
What must Paul do to have any real chance of winning or making a bigger impact? I think he should do exactly what I did in Louisiana, and for Ron Paul to follow exactly the same advice Ron Paul gave in his newsletters for others, take up my campaign issues with passion and purpose.
Could it be that Paul is taking Duke’s advice by hiding the racist “baggage from his past” in a more consistent package of “freedom?”
Thomas DiLorenzo is another neo-Confederate who believes the South was right in the the civil war and that Abraham Lincoln was a wicked man who destroyed states’ rights. DiLorenzo is listed as an affiliated scholar with the racist League of the South, which promotes segregation and a new southern secession. Paul invited DiLorenzo to testify before congress about the Federal Reserve and is close friends with Paul and works for the Ludwig Von Mises Instiute. Paul cited DiLorezno’s book when telling Tim Russert that the North should not have fought the Civil War.
James Von Brunn was a white supremacist and anti-Semite who opened fired at the Holocaust museum, killing an African-American security guard. Von Brunn was an avid Paul supporter who posted a message on the Ron Paul Yahoo Group, saying, “HITLER’S WORST MISTAKE: HE DIDN’T GAS THE JEWS.” In 1983, Von Brunn was convicted of kidnapping members of the Federal Reserve Board, a common target of Paul’s, and was sentenced to six years in prison.Von Brunn died while awaiting sentencing for his crime.
Bill White is a neo-Nazi who is a former member of of the neo-Nazi group the National Socialist Movement and founder of his own Nazi group, the National Socialist Worker’s Movement. He has called for the lynching of the Jena 6 and the assassination of NAACP leaders. White previously campaigned for Pat Buchanan and the Reform party. This year, White was convicted of threatening a juror but then freed by a judge who called the threats free speech. White is a former Ron Paul supporter who became disenfranchised with Paul, when a Paul spokesman called white supremacy “a small ideology.” Here is what White wrote about Paul on a popular white supremacist website:
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
Bill White, Commander
American National Socialist Workers Party
Ron Paul has not sued White for libel, which would be in his rights to do if White’s statement’s were lies. White is out of jail and has not lost credibility in the white supremacist world, writing for the neo-Nazi website the American Free Press and the same paper that used to carry Paul’s column.
Richard Poplawski is a neo-Nazi from Pittsburgh who regularly posted on the neo-Nazi website Stormfront. Poplawski would post videos of Ron Paul talking about FEMA camp conspiracy theories with Glenn Beck.
Polawski was afraid of a government conspiracy to take away people’s guns and wound up killing three police officers who came to his house after his mother made a domestic dispute call.
Jules Manson was a failed politician from Carson, Calif. Mason was also a big Paul supporter who would write, “I may be an athiest, but Ron Paul is my God,” on Paul’s website. Manson would also write, “Assassinate that n*gger and his family of monkeys,” of President Barack Obama.
This is not guilty by association. Ron Paul has spread white supremacy on conspiracy theories for years in his newsletters. The racism and conspiracy theories have driven some people to violence. Not only have Ron Paul’s racist supporters endorsed him and his views, he has endorsed them through his positions on the Civil War and the Civil Rights movement, without disavowing the support he gets from racists. This is guilt by racism.”
This is just a handful of names of the racist supporters that Ron Paul has. For more names, please take a look at my archives.
Guys- Seriously- Ron Paul wasn’t involved with those newsletters even a little bit!
"I also put out a political type of business investment newsletter, and sort of covered all these areas. And it covered a lot about what was going on in Washington and financial events. Especially some of the monetary events."
Ron Paul knew nothing about his Newsletters!
- made a shit load of money off of them,
- published them from a company which was listed as his home address,
- sent handwritten thank you letters to his fans for subscribing …
I’m not amused. Ron Paul has no backbone and I guarantee you he did write those letters. He wasn’t in the limelight at the time, and it happened for over two decades! And now - 30 years later - he wants to manage the United States of America, even though when he was much younger he couldn’t even manage a dinky publishing company which ran from his own house..
This is just one example of why I think Ron Paul is a sloppy piece of shit politician.
He has no respect for civil rights, equality, science, evolution, Darwin, the environment, the planet, equal opportunity, sexual harassment, women, hate crimes, our LGBTQ brothers and sisters, minorities, other people in general or for humankind. I could go on forever with this list..
~ I would never ever vote for him, and I urge you all not to vote for him as well.
You forgot to read the update about Nelson Linder. You see he gave this interview in 2008… *cough* and has not made any contact with Ron Paul since that whole situation. After Linder read the newsletters he made sure that Alex Jones type a statement on his website making sure no one was confusing his interview as the views og the NAACP. He’s not the Presideant of the entire organization as you implicate, he’s the president of the Austin Texas branch. Either way, he said in that interview that he was voting for Obama and never endorsed Ron Paul, who byt the way- he met once over 20 years before that interview.
In conclusion, you need to tell the Daily Paul to update your thread about how to respond to people who think Ron Paul should eat a dick. You might just need to look into Ron Paul’s past yourself, which I’m afraid would be heartbreaking. ANYhoOo..
