I am going to say a few things that are controversial in this column. I am going to say things that may offend a few people. I am going to do the unthinkable. I am going to cut into a hero of some in the Conservative Movement. I am going to break Ronald Reagan’s Eleventh Commandment, “Thou shalt not speak ill of any Republican.” This brings me no pleasure whatsoever, since this was someone I once supported, and on occasion, wrote glowing things about.
In this column, I am going to tell the truth about Ron Paul.
See, Ron Paul once had me fooled, just like he has a lot of the Tea Party fooled. I was sucked into his message, which he articulates quite well. A lot of what he said confirmed things that I had been saying for years, like the country is going broke, we’re sliding into socialism, we need to audit the Fed, blah, blah, blah, yadda, yadda yadda. Granted, every Conservative on God’s green and cooling earth has been saying that for decades, but for some odd reason, the way he presented it was spellbinding. It was refreshing to see someone who was collecting a Congressional pay check agree with me for a change.
Now of course, there were the accusations that Paul was an infamous antisemite. Those charges floated around for decades. I never really paid any attention to any of them, since much of the noise came from the ADL’s nonsensical ramblings. (Let’s face it, Abe Foxman’s gang might as well be called the “All Democrat League”, especially after they didn’t blast Chairman Obama for demanding that Israel return to her 1967 broders, nor did they take Obama to task for his ties to the Afrofascist Louis Farrakhan, the New Black Panther Party, or former PLO mouthpiece Rashid Khalidi.)
Who stepped up to defend RuPaul, as Mark Levin has christened him ?
David Duke would be one. Let’s take a look at what the trailer dwellers at DavidDuke.com had to say in 2007:
“When you think of the images that are evoked by appellations like ‘White Supremacist,’ “Nazi,’ ‘Racist’ or ‘Anti-Semite’ – are any of those images compatible with the sorts of policies advocated by Ron Paul and favored by white activists? Absolutely not.”
For the same reasons I abhor the ADL, the National Association for the Advancement of Communist Principles (NAACP), and La Raza, I abhor “white activism”. The reason is very simple: It’s identity politics, a calling card of the Ignorant 2+2=5 Left. The whole concept of identity politics flies in the face of Individualism, which is the cornerstone of Conservative thought. Some blacks are great people (Allen West, Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell) some are not. (Barack Obama, Cornel West, and Jeremiah Wrong.) Some Latinos are great people (Marco Rubio, Ileana Ros Lethinen, and Susana Martinez) and some are not. (Eliseo Medina from SEIU, Fidel Castro, and Hugo Chavez.) Some Jews are great people (Mark Levin, Michael Savage, and once in a while, Eric Cantor) and some are not. (Abe Foxman, Diane Frankenfeinstein, and Barbara “Ma’am” Boxer.) We could go on and on, but since you’re a smart cookie, I’m sure you get it. In the above example, I judged each and every person on what they’ve done and said, not their genetic characteristics or religion.
Now, this isn’t some sort of magical lib enlightenment that I have. (If you haven’t figured it out by now, I don’t do politicalcorrectthink.) This is how people who don’t have mental problems operate in the real world.
A good many of Ron Paul’s acolytes don’t think that way, however. Let’s see what the white trash fingersniffers of Stormfront had had to say back in 2007:
“Ron Paul is the last honest politician left in this country, and he’s 71. Look at all the other candidates in the debate…a bunch of stuttering, lying clowns down to the last man.”
From Little Green Footballs (Yes, I know that website has gone to hell in a handbasket, and yes, they claimed credit for outing Dan Rather when it was really a FReeper named Buckhead. However, this is important stuff) :
“An LGF reader emailed this photograph, showing Ron Paul at the Values Voters Presidential Debate in Fort Lauderdale on September 17, 2007. Immediately to Paul’s left: Don Black, the owner of neo-Nazi hate site Stormfront. If anyone knows who the creepy guy in the hat is, please post a comment.
Update: it’s Derek Black, Don’s son.
UPDATE at 12/20/07 5:17:22 pm:
Here’s another picture from the same event, showing Ron Paul signing an autograph for Derek Black:
UPDATE at 12/20/07 9:48:41 pm:
And if you’re wondering where these photos came from, here’s the source: Stormfront. (Google redirect page.) They were apparently taken by Stormfront member Jamie Kelso, with a Canon PowerShot SD1000 camera.”
Here’s where this gets interesting: Stormfront also posted a link to RuPaul’s website for fundraisng purposes. Conservative talk show host Michael Medved had this to say about Paul and his less than desirable allies:
“Dear Congressman Paul:
Your Presidential campaign has drawn the enthusiastic support of an imposing collection of Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, Holocaust Deniers, 9/11 ‘Truthers’ and other paranoid and discredited conspiracists.
Do you welcome- or repudiate – the support of such factions?
More specifically, your columns have been featured for several years in the American Free Press –a publication of the nation’s leading Holocaust Denier and anti-Semitic agitator, Willis Carto. His book club even recommends works that glorify the Nazi SS, and glowingly describe the ‘comforts and amenities’ provided for inmates of Auschwitz.
Have your columns appeared in the American Free Press with your knowledge and approval?
As a Presidential candidate, will you now disassociate yourself, clearly and publicly, from the poisonous propaganda promoted in such publications?
As a guest on my syndicated radio show, you answered my questions directly and fearlessly.
Will you now answer these pressing questions, and eliminate all associations between your campaign and some of the most loathsome fringe groups in American society?
Along with my listeners (and many of your own supporters), I eagerly await your response.
Respectfully, Michael Medved”
Remarkably, RuPaul didn’t reply to Medved.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. This happened in 2007. This is old news. You’re right. This is old news. Let’s fast foward to the present, shall we ? From the magical pen of David Horowitz at Newsreal Blog:
“Long ago Bill Buckley drummed the anti-Semites out of the conservative movement, and the movement thrived as a result. But the Jew-haters have returned. For years the Texas crackpot, Ron Paul, has been attacking America and Israel as imperialist powers — the Great Satan and the Little Satan, and calling for America’s retreat from the battle against our totalitarian enemies. At the recent CPAC conference Paul’s Jew-hating storm-troopers swarmed the Freedom Center’s table to vent their spleen against Israel as a Nazi state. Now Paul is making a priority of withdrawing aid for Israel — the only democracy in the Middle East and the only reliable ally of the United States. Here is an alert from Gary Bauer about the amendment Ron Paul is proposing which may be voted on today.

To: Friends & Supporters
From: Gary L. Bauer
Representative Ron Paul (R-TX) has just introduced an amendment to end all U.S. aid to Israel. The amendment could be voted on before the day is over. I need your help right now to stop this ill-conceived proposal!
Please click here to quickly and easily send a message to your elected representative urging them to stand with Israel.
Don’t be deceived. This Ron Paul proposal would not lower our budget deficit. By abandoning Israel while its enemies are gaining strength, the risk of a major war in the Middle East would increase. A major war would cost the U.S. billions and billions of dollars as we have already seen in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The U.S. gives billions of dollars a year to foreign countries that hate us and regularly vote against us at the United Nations. But, Israel votes with the U.S. 97% of the time. They are a loyal ally that shares our values. The aid they receive is used to buy military equipment from U.S. companies so the money comes back to us. Ron Paul’s proposal makes no sense.
Please right now go to http://www.cwfpac.com to tell your congressman to stand with Israel.
You may also call the Capitol Hill Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask for your representative’s office. If you don’t know his or her name, give the operator your zip code and they will transfer you. Tell them to stand with our most reliable ally Israel by opposing the Paul amendment to end all foreign aid. Please take action now!”
Don’t worry. Like every other thing RuPaul does, the amendment failed.
Is that not a call for concern ? Now, don’t misunderstand me, I am not a fan of foreign aid. It sucks. I don’t like having my money being taken from me by FORCE to be given to anyone. However, in Israel’s case, it’s a matter of national security. If Israel was unable to defend itself, it will be overwhelmed. If that were to happen, the Islamonazis who run Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the like will become emboldened. Who knows ? Maybe they’ll want Spain and Portugal back. Perhaps they’ll want Khazakstan or some of the other ‘Stans back. Within a blink of an eye, World War III will be wiping out millions of people.
But that doesn’t seem to bother RuPaul or his other less than admirable followers, Code Pinko.
From FOX News:
“Politics makes for strange bedfellows. Add Code Pink and Republican Rep. Ron Paul to that list.
The vehemently anti-war group is organizing a slew of events this weekend in opposition to the United States’ Israel policy, to coincide with the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Ahead of the protests, a Code Pink activist suggested the group — at least when it comes to Israel — is actually on the same page as Paul, a libertarian and one of the first candidates to enter the race for the GOP presidential nomination.
‘The Ron Paul people are closer and closer to our talking points with each election, Code Pink activist Liz Hourican told FoxNews.com.”
I see. And who helps foot the bill for Code Pinko ? (I’ve written extensively about the traitors at Code Pinko. See
You guessed it! Everyone’s least favorite Nazi collaborator, Furious George $oros!
From Discover The Networks:
“Code Pink receives financial support from the Tides Foundation, [a $oros front group] the Streisand Foundation, and the New Priorities Foundation.”
Yes, that’s the same Code Pinko that helped kickstart the “Arab Spring” that has taken the Middle East from crazy to bat-poop crazy. Yes, that’s the same George $oros who short sold America causing a 627 point loss in the first stock market session right after 9/11. It would not be beyond the realm of sanity to believe that $oros would throw RuPaul a few bucks to screw up the Republican Primary is it ?
Now, I know RuPaul isn’t going to win the Republican nomination, especially with Rick Perry and Michele Bachman doing so well in the polls. But there is a danger of that miserable, old Jew hating SOB leeching off enough Tea Party votes in the Primary to hand Myth Romney the nomination. There is also a danger that RuPaul will do his best Ross Perot imitation and hand the election to Chairman Obama, finishing off the Republic.
THINK, TEA PARTY PATRIOTS, THINK!
RuPaul is a “man” who thinks our brave troops are fighting a war of imperialism. RuPaul is a “man” who has aligned himself with trailer park trash Neo-Nazis and commies who are funded by George $oros. RuPaul also wants to see Israel, the birthplace of our American Judeo-Christian values fall into the hands of Islamofascists who cheered for the murder of 3000 Americans after 9/11. RuPaul wants to slash the military and let Iran have nuclear weapons even more than Chariman Obama does, if that’s even possible.
Is RuPaul why you spent countless hours waving signs in the blazing sun ? Is RuPaul why you spent countless hours writing letters to CONgressmen and Imperial Senators ? Is a RuPaul candidacy going to lead us to that Shining City on a Hill ? Would Ronald Reagan associate with Code Pinko ? Would Dwight D. Eisenhower associate with Stormfront ? Would Calvin Coolidge associate himself with subhuman filth like George $oros ?
Victory or defeat. The choice is yours, Patriots.
