Racists and haters don't mind when Ron Paul says flippant positive comments about MLK and Rosa Parks because they know where his bread is buttered. Racists, Libertarians and big business are not that much at odds with each other but Ron Paul started courting people like me for my opposition to the Iraq and Afgan wars. I also admired Ron Paul's stance on alternative health. When I discovered that Ron Paul also supported eliminating the voting Rights of ethnic minorities and wanted to eliminate the provisions of the Civil Rights Act, I knew I had to find out what was going on. Down the rabbit hole I went...
Ron Paul's Newsletter from the late 80's and throughout the 90's made Ron Paul millions of dollars for his war chest and financed his rise as a Populist anti-war candidate but Ron Paul's armies of Brown Shirt Paulbots could not stop the truth about his racist past from emerging. You might have to look through a dozen Pro Paul articles to get to the facts but "the truth is out there."
Read Ron Paul's Newsletter to see how RP really feels.
This monthly newsletter made RP over $900,000 in one year for race and gay baiting but then when Dr. Paul wants to become a candidate of " The People," the Newsletter ends in 2001 and the made for Youtube candidate sings a different tune. Before you put Ron Paul up for being the second coming Messiah, at least realize we are talking about a politician. Ron Paul is the Far Right Presidential candidate who will take $2,000 checks from many White Supremacist's while breaking bread in a White Supremacist's own home on the Presidential trail. Ron Paul has a long history of voting for issues that White Supremacists hold dear and he has values in alignment with haters. White Supremacist donors in California believe in Ron Paul's racism. They support Ron Paul for his voting record on Civil Rights and they well remember those Ron Paul Newsletters written in first person, where Ron Paul says MLK was a Gay Communist sympathizer. Racists appreciate how hardcore Ron Paul is when he is the only "No Vote" in Congress when it comes to commemorating Rosa Parks and understand when it is politically expedient to call MLK and Rosa Parks heroes.
Ron Paul would reverse Civil Rights and say MLK plagiarized his sermons yet uses MLK's own words in his speeches.
Ron Paul used ads on the Ron Paul website with MLK on them but RP voted against an MLK day
and Ron Paul is the only "no vote" in Congress against a Rosa Parks commemorative medallion:
"This medal is encouragement for all of us to continue until all have rights," - Rosa Parks
Ron Paul voted against reauthorizing the Fannie Lou Hamer, Rosa Parks, and Coretta Scott King Voting Rights Act Reauthorization and Amendments Act
It is hard to fathom this vote unless you are a racist.
Dr. Paul's reasons for voting against MLK day he says is because it is a waste of taxpayer's money and Unconstitutional but it is clear from his own voting record that RP's votes are race based. Where is the Rosa Parks' like speech when it comes to the Boy Scout medallion? RP is the cosponsor of the Bill
Are you beginning to see a pattern here?
These are Ron Paul's words;
"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 survives at the grass roots. Many more are going to have difficultly avoiding the belief that our country 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.
Indeed, it is shocking to consider the uniformity of opinion among blacks in this country. Opinion polls consistently show that only about 5% of blacks have sensible political opinions, i.e. support the free market, individual liberty, and the end of welfare and affirmative action.... Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. laughingly calls the "criminal justice system," I think we can safely assume that 95% of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.
If similar in-depth studies were conducted in other major cities, who doubts that similar results would be produced? We are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, but it is hardly irrational. Black men commit murders, rapes, robberies, muggings, and burglaries all out of proportion to their numbers.
Perhaps the L.A. experience should not be surprising. The riots, burning, looting, and murders are only a continuation of 30 years of racial politics.The looting in L.A. was the welfare state without the voting booth. The elite have sent one message to black America for 30 years: you are entitled to something for nothing. That's what blacks got on the streets of L.A. for three days in April. Only they didn't ask their Congressmen to arrange the transfer." - Ron Paul
Ron Paul gives the the largest businesses in the world(Oil Companies) a free ride on MTBE's
against increasing MPG for automobiles
against making oil companies paying royalties
and you might know why the Republicans have not kicked Ron Paul out of their Party... Because he votes against the consumers and for big business when they really need him.
Ron Paul calls himself a Constitutionalist but is willing to change the Constitution to prevent Hispanics from acquiring Citizenship . Ron Paul would strip away Constitutional Rights for birthright citizenship.
Protecting the borders is one thing but terminating Constitutional protections and rounding up 40 million Mexican workers and their families is a race war.
Can anyone out there see this as a step in the far right direction?
"Dr. No" was a racist in the 80's and 90's. Since 2000, Dr. Paul toned down the racist rhetoric to pull those who are opposed to the war into his camp. I for one was almost duped or should I say "Duked" into voting for Ron Paul in the Republican Primary. I knew something was wrong about the massive amounts of Mexicans flooding across the border but I sensed that there was something sinister about the whole thing. I discovered that the U.S. dumped corn in Mexico below cost to send Mexicans to Maqiladoras. When the low paying jobs in sweat shops went to even lower paid workers in China, the farmers went back to their land but it had been taken from them. They had been trapped between a corrupt Multinational Corporate strategy there own corrupt countries laws. The only solution was to head North.
The Ron Paul solution is to close the border. I agree with this idea. Stop the flow of illegal immigration and if the Mexican National commits a violent or drug related crime, I am all for sending criminals back to Mexico but most Mexicans living in the United States are hard working people who want to live in peace just like most Americans do. If the borders were tightened up and a Mexican National goes back to Mexico then they should not be allowed to return without a legal Visa. If the Mexican Nationals stay in America then that makes them Americans in my book. RP's follow up answer to immigrants is massive deportation and that to me is where I draw the line. The "Final Solution" is not too far out of sight when the 40 million Mexican Workers and their families refuse to return to Mexico. I believe in living in community with my neighbors, not in stockpiling weapons and munitions to kill my neighbors. Following my eye opening disagreements with Ron Paul about immigration and other issues, I looked further than I ever did before. I discovered Ron Paul votes for big time polluters, for big business, against those with handicaps, against the voting Rights of ethnic minorities, and against Civil Rights in general. I am with Paul when he is against the war and against the Patriot Act. I am with "Dr. No" when he wants to stop the FDA from banning vitamins and health supplements. I am glad he has spoken up against the war but Ron Paul is the wrong messenger. Put up a man or woman for President that doesn't have a long history of being a racist. Show me a candidate who has a voting record that opposes the war and a voting record of votes for a safety net of Constitutional Rights and a Bill of Rights for people regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, national origin, religion, disability, or sexual orientation and he or she should become President(Short of a Diebold or the Supreme Court fixing of the election again) of the United States. Those are values I consider to be American values. Bye Ron Paul. You fooled me for a little while but I am moving on.
