      •  Don't forget that RP is also (6+ / 0-)

        a sexist pig.

         The only thing that most of us can find common ground with the racist sexist pig is his opposition to the Iraq war.

         In my area of the country the only people who seem to have the RP signs out are the skin heads & northern KKK types. (Up in WA state the northern KKK type hate the Indians -- I mean really hate American Indians.)

          I find it very disturbing, that such a level of blunt profanity is acceptable on the daily kos. I consider that to be a case of libel.

            (1) This site is for democrats. (2) Supports of racists don't belong here, and Paul is a racist.

            From the December 1990 Ron Paul Political Report:

            "Dr." King

            So now even the establishment press admits that Martin Luther King plagiarized his PhD dissertation, his acadmeic articles, his speeches, and his sermonds.

            He was also a comsymp, if not an actual party member, and the man who replaced the evil of forced segregation with the evil of forced integration.

            King, the FBI files show, was not only a world-class adulterer, he also seduced underaged girls and boys. The Rev. Ralph David Abernathy revealed before his death htat King had made a pass at him many years before.

            And we are supposed to honor this "Christian minister" and lying socialist satyr with a holiday that puts him on par with George Washington?

            Congratulations to Arizona! Who could doubt that the result would be exactly the same if the other 49 states could also vote on a holiday for this affirmative-action saint?

            From the February 1991 Ron Paul Political Report:

            The X-Rated Martin Luther King

            I was among the first to bring you news, about a year ago, that the Rev. Martin Luther King plagiarized his doctoral dissertation.  The January 1991 Issue of Chronicles magazine tells the whole sordid story, but to scoop them, the Wall Street Journal ran a "sensitive" story. And now the New Republic reports that it, the WSJ, the Washington Post, and the New York Times knew about the plagiarism long ago but chose to suppress it. So much for our free press.

            We know that King was a Marxist and a world-class adulterer. But there is yet another charge, and this one appears in black columnist Carl Rowan's new book Breaking Barrier (Boston: Little, Brown, 1991).

            While Rowan was head of the U.S. Information Agency under LBJ, he found out about the FBI bugging of King's multifarious sexual activities. Documented on tape: a sexual relationship between King and his fellow Christian minister, Ralph David Abernathy. See the Rowan book for the exacty words, which I cannot bring myself to quote. Am I glad I voted in Congress against an expensive federal holiday for this man.

            From the June 1992 Ron Paul Political Report:

            A Special Issue on Racial Terrorism

            The Los Angeles and related riots mark a new era in American cultural, political, and economic life. We now know, if we did not before, that we are under assault from thugs and revolutionaries who hate Euro-American civilization and everything it stands for: private property, material success for those who earn it, and Christian morality.

            This Is America, 1992.

            Ten thousand stors and other buildings looted and burned, thousands beaten and otherwise seriously injured, 52 people dead. That was the toll of the Los Angeles riots in which we saw white men pulled from their cars and trucks and shot or brutally beaten. (In every case, the mob was not too enraged to pick the victim's pocket.)

            We saw Korean and white stores targeted by the mob because they "exploited the community," i.e., sold products people wanted at prices they were willing to pay.

            Worst of all we saw the total breakdown of law enforcement, as black and white liberal public officials had the cops and troops disarmed in the face of criminal anarchy.
            . . .

            The criminals who terrorized our cities - in riots and on every non-riot day - are not exclusively young black males, but they largely are. As children, they are trained to hate whites, to believe that white oppression is responsible for all black ills, to "fight the power," to steal and loot as much money from the white enemy as possible. Anything is justified against "The Man."

            And "The Woman." A lady I know recently saw a black couple in the supermarket with a cute little girl, three years old or so. My friend waved to the tiny child, who scowled, stuck out her tongue, and said (somewhat tautologically): "I hate you, white honkey." And the parents were indulgent. Is any white child taught to hate this way? I've never heard of it. If a white child made such a remark to a black woman, the parents would stop it with a reprimand or a spank. But this is normal, and in fact benign, compared to much of the anti-white ideology in the thoroghly racist black community.
            . . .

            The cause of the riots is plain: barbarism. If the barbarians cannot loot sufficiently through legal channels (i.e., the triots being the welfare-state minus the middle-mand), they resort to illegal ones, to terrorism. Trouble is, few seem willing to do anything to stop them. The cops have been handcuffed. And property owners are not allowed to defend themselves.
            . . .

            Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks three days after rioting began. The "poor" lined up at the post office to get their handouts (since there were no deliveries) - and then complained about slow service.

            What if the checks had never arrived? No doubt the blacks would have fully privatized the welfare state through continued looting. But they were paid off and the violence subsided.
            . . .

            Regardless of what the media tell us, most white Americans are not going to believe that they are at fault for what blacks have done to cities across America. The professional blacks may have cowed the elites, but good sense survies at the grass roots.

            Many more are going to have difficulty avoiding the belief that our coutnry is being destroyed by a group of actual and potential terrorists - and they can be identified by the color of their skin. This conclusion may not be entirely fair, but it is, for many, entirely unavoidable.
            . . .

            We are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, but it is hardly irrational. Black men commit murders, rapes, robbieries, muggings, and burglaries all out of proportion to their numbers.

            And this doesn't include the homophobia that appeared in his magazines over for over a decade.

            But have fun with your bullshit delusions.

            •  Ron Paul not a racist (0+ / 0-)

              The 16+ years old articles were not written by Ron Paul. He wasn't even the editor of that magazine. Why would the Austin NAACP President Nelson Linder defend Ron Paul on that matter, if there is any chance that Ron Paul would be a racist?

              •  You're delusional and in denial (0+ / 0-)

                The name of these particlar newsletters is "The Ron Paul Political Report".

                They are written in the first person. In other words, they are written from Paul's perspective. In fact, if you'd open your eyes, you'll notice one of the entries says something like, "I'm glad I voted against making MLK day a holiday in Congress".

                This is not a single isolated incident. It is dozens and dozens of newsletters written under his name in the first person, evidencing racism, homophobia, and support of klansmen like David Duke, over a decade!

                Take your insanity and support for a racist republican elsewhere.

              •  Maybe he's in favor of tax cuts. Who knows? (0+ / 0-)

                Why would the Austin NAACP President Nelson Linder defend Ron Paul on that matter, if there is any chance that Ron Paul would be a racist?

          •  racism is profane (0+ / 0-)


            hatred of an individual person -- now that is understandable. Ray-gun hurt people (and was responsible for thousands of deaths) -- so hating Ray-gun is healthy. And then put that hatred to work -- work for someone who doesn't hate a whole race and who wants to make people's lives better -- and create a better future for the next generations

            Ron Paul appeals to people who are haters of people for no other reason than their gender -- or their sexual preference or the color of their skin. Ron Paul appears to appeals to selfish and self-centered greedy people.

            •  You are wrong. (0+ / 0-)

              I am sorry, but you are very wrong. Ron Paul appeals to people who love freedom and who hate wars. Let Freedom Ring

              •  Is that why the Neo-Nazi's love him? (0+ / 0-)

                And hey, it's really tasteful for you to degrade the memory of Martin Luther King by posting a youtube video to make it look as though he would have endorsed Ron Paul for President.  I didn't realize that Ron Paul had the authority to speak on MLK's behalf.

                •  spreading MLKs message (0+ / 0-)

                  Ron Paul doesn't speak on MLK's behalf, but he endorses his message. And I don't give a sh*t about who Neo-Nazi's love and you shouldn't either. Would you bomb Iran if Osama bin Laden urges you NOT to do it? In other words: Even if you react contrary to what your opponents want, you are a puppet of your opponent. Think for yourself!

        He says that Paul is not a racist.

        Personally I think we should be arguing against the guy for actual issues.  He's pro-life, for one, we could talk about that.

        •  yes (0+ / 0-)

          Paulbots are full of shit.

        •  You can't... (2+ / 0-)

          Cultivate mindless hatred though, if you talk about actual issues. And without mindless hatred, you run the risk of some (but of course not most) actually giving him lukewarm support just this once.

          Kossers aren't even allowed to support him so that a brokered convention might happen, though they're allowed to joke about supporting other republican candidates for that reason.

          Ron Paul's ideas about immigration range from the extremely stupid to the incredibly wrong and dangerous.

          He scares me with the religious rhetoric. He believes in states' rights, but won't get rid of DOMA?

          All moot now. Even a first place victory in Nevada would have been a fluke, not the start of a comeback. Now I get to choose from the worst of the two parties. I think I'll go back to not voting.

      •  In Florida GOP, racism plays big. (0+ / 0-)

        It gets RP votes.
