Addictinginfo: Ron Paul, Not Racist, Seriously? "Facts are Stubborn Things!"

We have expended many hours on Ron Paul and his racism. Paul contends he is not racist despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Paul has received major support from white supremacist groups. He has been photographed with Don Black of StormFront Dot Org. He published racist newsletters years ago. Of course, he denied writing the passages in the newsletters, but a former administrative assistant indicated he certainly exercised editorial authority over the news letters. Paul was also reported by an Anonymous hacking probe to have sat-in on a white supremacist conference call during the 2008 presidential cycle. 

Nathaniel Downes walks us through Paul's latest episode.

Ron Paul Forgets That He’s Not Racist And Plans To Attend Anti-Semitic Conference

Ron Paul has a racist problem. He is well known for a series of gaffes which have made him sound racist. Leaked documents show him with ties to racist groups. And let’s not forget those newsletters of his. If there is a way to appear to be bigoted, Ron Paul is there.

The John Birch Society has similarly been plagued by claims of racism. From their earliest history, back when they claimed Eisenhower was a Communist, they have been bankrolled by big money, anti-government interests. Identified with various racist movements over the years, the John Birch Society is a loud and proud anti-American organization, dedicated to destroying the ideal of “We the People” in order to impose their own brand of dictatorship – rule by the white, male majority (“No Irish Need Apply“).
And now, both Ron Paul and John Birch Society president, John McManus, are on the schedule to speak at Fatima: The Path To Peace,” a conference put together by the Society of Saint Pius X, an organization labelled by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a “Radical Powerhouse in the anti-Semitic movement. As reported, the SSPX has released articles where they pushed anti-Semitic ideals, with this as an example passage held up by the order:
In the Catholic Middle Ages the Jews were relatively impotent to harm Christendom, but as Catholics have grown over the centuries since then weaker and weaker in the faith, especially since Vatican II, so the Jews have come closer and closer to fulfilling their substitute-Messianic drive towards world dominion.
Jews for world domination? There was a powerful speaker several decades ago who claimed the same thing. We now hold up his name as an epitaph for racism after he murdered six million of them, along with countless other minorities in his drive for racial purity. What kind of “peace” can be discussed by these radicals when, in the past, that discussion has ended in mass murder, the epitome of such hate speech?
The press release for the conference itself described it well:
All speakers share one thing in common, a keen understanding that the nations of the world suffer profound disorder, that evil and shocking immorality are on the rise, that war and violence steadily increase, that the stability of our entire social order is at stake, and that a solution to the present chaos is of utmost necessity.
A solution, a final solution, to stabilize the social order – a social order whereby only the racially and ideologically pure have any rights and all others are either serfs or are fit only for extermination. Sound familiar? This peace is a peace by destruction.
That anyone would attend such a conference is disgusting and horrifying in this day and age. The radical right-wings total embrace of an almost Daffy Duck level of “It’s Mine, Mine, All Mine” has resulted in their merging with the worst aspects of human nature. That a one-time serious contender for the GOP’s presidential nomination is now cavorting with overt racists seeking nothing less than the total subjugation of any “lesser races” leaves observers with a bad taste… and leaves Ron Paul with yet another reason to be called a racist.
