Ron Paul Raised Money by Forecasting ‘Race War’

How the far right survives
Wingnuts • Views: 30,046

Imagine my surprise that more evidence of Ron Paul’s long history of racism and far right fear-mongering is now coming to light. Reuters has unearthed a blatantly racist and homophobic direct-mail advertisement for the infamous Ron Paul newsletters: In ad for newsletter, Ron Paul forecast race war.

A direct-mail solicitation for Ron Paul’s political and investment newsletters two decades ago warned of a “coming race war in our big cities” and of a “federal-homosexual cover-up” to play down the impact of AIDS.

The eight-page letter, which appears to carry Paul’s signature at the end, also warns that the U.S. government’s redesign of currency to include different colors - a move aimed at thwarting counterfeiters - actually was part of a plot to allow the government to track Americans using the “new money.”

The letter urges readers to subscribe to Paul’s newsletters so that he could “tell you how you can save yourself and your family” from an overbearing government.

The letter’s details emerge at a time when Paul, now a contender for the Republican nomination for president, is under fire over reports that his newsletters contained racist, anti-homosexual and anti-Israel rants.
