I personally will not vote for Ron Paul, but god I respect him. ~ ed.

And all these attacks about his racist newsletters mean one thing: he’s finally being perceived as a threat to the GOP status quo after weeks of ranking first or second in Iowa polling.

The below video gets to the point right away. For me, it gets fully convincing (he says why he’s no racist according to Libertarian values, and you know he believes in those!) at 2:50:

via Reddit: “Ron Paul wants to free 100’s of 1,000’s of nonviolent imprisoned minorities. If Ron Paul is a racist like the major media wants you to believe, he’s pretty bad at it. MLK & Rosa Parks are his heros because they practiced the libertarian principle of nonviolent civil disobedience.”

    Ok, Ron Paul lets see you prove it go up to bat to try to stop the republicans from excluding black neighborhood from voting. Lets see you bring up what's going on in Ohio. There is one black neighborhood where they un plat their land, and want to take it and use the place for a golf course. Then charge the people for walking in their own park. Show us what you can do. So many republicans flip flop, and you just might say one thing but when your president do another.

    – In 1995 he promoted his newsletters on cspan, He admitted that his newsletters were accurate in 1996, then denied newsletters in 2001, and today denies knowing anything about them for 10plus years. What … A…. Joke.

  3. Harusami says:

    Yeah, he has no problem with black people, but doesn't think white people should be forced to serve them in their stores and restaurants or sit with them on public transportation or venues. The White Supremacists & Neo Nazis adore him, and a big supporter of his just called for the death of Obama and his "monkey children" while also using the "N" word to describe our President.

    Synchronicity in timing of the attacks on Paul in every single MSM outlet is so pathetically obvious that only brain dead people don't see it. This didn't happen two weeks or two months ago while he was trailing in polls, but as soon as he becomes a threat to the establishment, there you go… Since both left and right hate him, he really must be doing something right.

    If you haven’t clicked the link that guess left, you should.
    Remember when Obama was called a radical racist because of Jeremiah Wright?
    How long did you worry about that?
    Not long.
    It wasn’t true, it was just a smear.
    Same deal here.

    Stop fabricating, Nicole.

    Ron Paul said he didn't know about those specific LINES written in the newsletter 20-odd years ago. There were tons of amateur newsletters published throughout the course of years. Of course he didn't sit there reading every line.

    Lead NY Times editorial: "Why won't he disavow racist supporters?" I'd like to know.… ~ Waylon

    Tough article in the Times…headlining John Birch society 50th Anniversary dinner in 2008? Egads.

    Sorry, didn’t mean to post the video itself in the comments, just the link. But what the heck right?
