Ron Paul Revisits Proven Dog Whistle For An Audience Of Secessionists

Your daily does of GOP racism!

Deep rooted and ingrained via American heroes

Am I writing about John Wayne? "No" I am going to walk through some panted Ron Paul racism. 

Is there any wonder we continue to experience overt racist from noted white nationalist celebrities like Ron Paul?  Paul exposed:

Bob Cesca's The Daily Banter (excerpt below)
Ron Paul said: 
“I was always annoyed with it in Congress because we had an anti-war unofficial group, a few libertarian Republicans and generally the Black Caucus and others did not—they are really against war because they want all of that money to go to food stamps for people here.”

A quick look at data from 2010 an 2013:

Of course, we realize the Black Caucus has district constituents who are no African-American (or "black" if that is your preference). We also know such open thinking was not at the core of Paul's comments. The data above was the last thought and concer of racist dog and facilitating dog whistles.

In the 1990s, Ron Paul is alleged to have penned a vile newsletter that was over-the-top a cesspool of racist enticements for readers who soaked-up the garbage like the largest landfill across America. 

January 2012, Wendy Gittleson, Addictinginfo published a piece that included excerpts from Paul's Newsletter. It is important to keep in mind the items your about to read are a minuet representation of the body of work. 

“If you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be.” – Ron Paul, 1992
“Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. 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.” – Ron Paul, 1992
“We don’t think a child of 13 should be held responsible as a man of 23. That’s true for most people, but black males age 13 who have been raised on the streets and who have joined criminal gangs are as big, strong, tough, scary and culpable as any adult and should be treated as such.” – Ron Paul, 1992
“What else do we need to know about the political establishment than that it refuses to discuss the crimes that terrify Americans on grounds that doing so is racist? Why isn’t that true of complex embezzling, which is 100 percent white and Asian?” – Ron Paul, 1992
Paul’s campaign doesn’t deny the existence of the newsletters, just his involvement. As it turns out, Paul might not have written the newsletters but according to Hathway, he did read them and in fact, he proofread them. From the Washington Post:
“It was his newsletter, and it was under his name, so he always got to see the final product. .?.?. He would proof it,’’ said Renae Hathway, a former secretary in Paul’s company and a supporter of the Texas congressman.
The Post also reports that:
It is unclear precisely how much money Paul made from his newsletters, but during the years he was publishing them, he reduced his debts and substantially increased his net worth, according to his congressional and presidential disclosure reports. In 1984, he reported debt of up to $765,000, most of which was gone by 1995, when he reported a net worth of up to $3.3 million. Last year, he reported a net worth up to $5.2 million.
They quoted an anonymous source within Paul’s organization:
A person involved in Paul’s businesses, who spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid criticizing a former employer, said Paul and his associates decided in the late 1980s to try to increase sales by making the newsletters more provocative. They discussed adding controversial material, including racial statements, to help the business, the person said.
“It was playing on a growing racial tension, economic tension, fear of government,’’ said the person, who supports Paul’s economic policies but is not backing him for president. “I’m not saying Ron believed this stuff. It was good copy. Ron Paul is a shrewd businessman.’’
Regardless motive, strategy, intent or potential financial gain, Paul and his published guttural racist passages in the newsletter. While we will not expend keyboard time on Paul's cohorting and snuggling with white supremacists, it is a social reality.  If it quacks like a duck, if it walks like a duck.......

Rod Paul with Don Black (and son Derek) at 2007 Values Voters Conference.  White supremacists at the Values Voters Conference?

Don Black was once the Grand Dragon of the KKK The meme wording reads as Derek Black was the Grand Dragon......a writers sentence structure slippage.  It should be noted Derek Black has repudiated the white supremacist ideology and gone very pubic with his repudiation.

I digress for sake of clarity and fairness, let's stick with the racist meandering of Ron Paul. 

Bob Cesca, his week, published a piece regarding Paul's continued wallowing in overt racism. 

Following Pro-Secession Remarks, Ron Paul Says the Black Caucus Was Only Anti-War Because Food Stamps

Last week, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) announced to a group of right-wing secession fetishists that secession and nullification is “happening” and that it’s a “good thing.” Naturally, the crowd of rednecks and neo-Confederates hooted and hollered at the announcement, though it’s unclear which states are seceding and when.

Not for nothing, but the last time secession occurred, more than 625,000 Americans were killed — roughly two percent of the entire U.S. population, if you include the southern states. In modern numbers, that’d be roughly six million corpses.

This is a “good thing” to Ron Paul.
Now couple this with his remarks today on the equally-as-kooky Lew Rockwell show. While discussing sanctions in the Middle East and ISIS, Ron Paul said:
“I was always annoyed with it in Congress because we had an anti-war unofficial group, a few libertarian Republicans and generally the Black Caucus and others did not—they are really against war because they want all of that money to go to food stamps for people here.”

Right, so the congressional Black Caucus is only anti-war because of food stamps.

Cesca's point is "spot-on". The Black Caucus, anti-war, and food stamps as a collec point of a speech could only emanate from for the mind of a demagogue delivering a message with a focus on disparaging a target group.  In this case, Paul "went" racist with a group of secessionists.
