More Deranged, Racist Ron Paul Newsletters Released by TNR

“Only 8 to 10 sentences?”
Wingnuts • Views: 21,787

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul continues to evade responsibility for the ugly, deranged newsletters he sold for many years; recently he claimed that “only 8 to 10 sentences were offensive,” out of all these newsletters.

This, dear readers, is what is commonly known as “an outright lie.” And today The New Republic demonstrates just how blatant a lie, by publishing many more pages from the newsletters. Far from being taken out of context, the craziness you’ve already heard about was Ron Paul’s stock in trade; this is how he made (by some reports) millions of dollars.

TNR Exclusive: More Selections From Ron Paul’s Newsletters.

The newsletters repeatedly defended and expressed support for a variety of prominent racists. The May 1990 Political Report cited Jared Taylor, a prominent eugenics advocate. The July 1994 Survival Report again cited the “criminologist Jared Taylor.”

The newsletters warned repeatedly of “race war.” The June 1990 Political Report carried an item entitled, “Race War?” which claimed that said war was on the horizon because of “the victimization mentality created by the civil rights movement, where every black failure is a white crime. If there is indeed this sort of trouble ahead, it is just another reason why every honest American should be armed.” The August 1990 Political Report claimed that “we’ve got a potential race war.” The December 1990 Investment Letter reported that “Abortion is rampant, race war is heating up, AIDS is spreading, and inflation is wiping out the middle class.”

The September 1992 edition of the Political Report wrote of a supposed spate of bank robberies this way: “Today, gangs of young blacks bust into a bank lobby firing rounds at the ceiling.” It also said that “We don’t think a child of 13 should be held as 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.”

A January 1993 Survival Report item headlined “Poor Marge Schott!” defended the former Cincinnati Reds owner, who was “being crucified” after she referred to her own players as “million dollar niggers,” said that “sneaky goddamn Jews are all alike” and “only fruits wear earrings,” and claimed that Hitler was an initially positive force for Germany.

The March 1994 Survival Report warned of a “South African Holocaust.” It said, “Quite frankly, I cannot see how South Africa is going to escape a blood bath.” In June 1994—two months after South Africa’s first democratic election—an item headlined, “There Goes South Africa,” claimed that “Mandela is trying to appear as a moderate, and indeed he may be as the Red ANC goes.” The newsletter advocated a separate state for whites in South Africa, writing, “If everyone accepts the notion that a homeland can be created for the Palestinians, I wonder why no consideration is given by world opinion leaders to a similar situation for the whites in South Africa, as they have requested.”

Racism was not the only ugliness Ron Paul peddled; he also traded in conspiracy theories, anti-government militancy, and antisemitism:

A letter on congressional letterhead, dated August 30, 1979, from Paul thanked a Mr. Amos W. Bruce for “the copy of the article in The American Mercury and the copies of your essays. I found them all very interesting.” The American Mercury was an anti-Semitic magazine owned by Willis Carto, one of America’s most notorious holocaust deniers and the founder of The Liberty Lobby. The issue of The American Mercury Paul praised included essays entitled, “You Can’t Escape the Kosher Food Tax,” “Are You Ready for the White Man’s Doomsday,” and “Racism - Black African Style.”

Is it just a coincidence that Ron Paul’s star is rising in the Republican Party at this moment in time?

Gotta love his "defense" strategy: "No, I didn't write them, no I didn't approve of them, but there's only a few sentences that are offensive, not that I said anything about them when I was using the newsletters to rake in money."

I'm not sure whether we're supposed to consider him incompetent, absent-minded, opportunistic, or a very bad liar.

We find the defendant incredibly guilty.

3 Kragar  Tue, Jan 17, 2012 1:10:51pm

I think if nothing else this shows Ron Paul doesn't give a shit about what people write in his name. But he loves freedom! Yeah and I like getting punched in the face. I have no doubt that Paul would be just as and perhaps even more big government than what he decries.

i'm still in a state of shock over the fact that newt gingrich is allowed, even encouraged, to go around repeating this appallingly racist line about "the Food Stamp President"

somebody in the republican party should have the decency to denounce this. it's a scandal that they don't

Ongoing Blatant Lies Of The 2012 Republican Campaign

Obama is "against work"

Obama "put millions of people on food stamps" - as if he took some kind of executive action to force people to use food stamps instead of look for a job

Social Security is broke and a "ponzi scheme"

Obama "apologized" for America

The stimulus bill "didn't create one job". except for all those people who were paid money to build things, and all those republican senators, representatives, and governors who publicly applauded how the stimulus finds were helping them "create jobs" in their states

Obama "promised" that the stimulus would keep the unemployment rate from going over 8%

i could go on, but the GOP generates lies at a tremendous rate and it's hard to keep up...

Via Wikipedia on Food Stamps:

Participants
According to the United States Department of Agriculture (based on a study of data gathered in Fiscal Year 2010), statistics for the food stamp program are as follows:[13]

49% of all participants are children (17 or younger), and 49% of them live in single-parent households.
15% of all participants are elderly (age 60 or over).
20% of all participants are non-elderly disabled people.
The average gross monthly income per food stamp household is $731; The average net income is $336.
35% of participants are white; 22% are African-American, not Hispanic; 10% are Hispanic; 2% are Asian, 4% are Native American, and 19% are of unknown race or ethnicity.[13]
An annual report released by the Department of Agriculture about the composition of households participating in the Food Stamp Program is identified as the Characteristics Report.[14]

Aside from nutritional assistance, SNAP Employment and Training (E&T) funds can also be used to provide recipients with education and training and career pathways programs.[15] SNAP outreach funds can also be integrated with screening tools for other public benefit programs.[16]

Fraud and abuse
According to the Government Accountability Office, at a 2009 count, 3.53% of food stamps benefits were found to be overpaid, down from 7.01% in 1999.[17] A 2003 analysis found that two-thirds of all improper payments were the fault of the caseworker, not the participant.[17] There are also instances of fraud involving exchange of food stamp benefits for cash and/or for items not eligible for purchase with food stamps.[18]

In Maine, extremely isolated incidents of recycling fraud have occurred in the past where individuals once committed fraud by using their EBT to buy canned or bottled beverages (requiring a deposit to be paid at the point of purchase for each beverage container), dump the contents out so the empty beverage container could be returned for deposit redemption, and thereby, allowed these individuals to eventually purchase non-EBT authorized products with cash from the beverage container deposits. The Maine Office of Health and Community Services changed agency regulations pertaining to the EBT purchase of eligible items in beverage containers and now requires that Maine General Assistance recipients to pay the entire cost of their beverage container deposits with their own money.[19]

I think Ron Paul learned long ago that he has much more efficacy inside the republican party. Additionally, if he were to go third party he would severely damage his son's chances of becoming a rising star in the party. Right now it looks like Ron Paul will essentially retire after this election cycle, or get some kind of token appointment within the federal government.
Rand Paul will probably run for president in 2016 or 2020.

Yep. And it would be interesting if there is any blowback in agricultural states in the Midwest from realizing that attacks on programs like SNAP affect wallets there as well. Not to mention that the program being implemented in the first place was partially a trade-off to allow farm subsidies to continue.

One of the activists joining them was North Carolina pastor Patrick Wooden, one of the chief organizers for the North Carolina amendment to ban same-sex marriage. Not that the SPLC needed further proof of AFTAH’s demonization of gays and lesbians, but while appearing on LaBarbera’s radio show, Wooden told LaBarbera that homosexuality would “most certainly mean the extinction of the human race.” He claims that the medical community is suppressing the truth about the medical problems of homosexuals as it would make people “gag and no one would want to be in a lifestyle like that,” arguing that by the time gay mean reach their middle ages they “have to wear a diaper or a butt plug just to be able to contain their bowels” because of “what happens to the male anus.”

GOP Senator: We Need ‘Child Labor’ To Fight Obesity Epidemic

At a recent town hall in Osage, Iowa, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R) responded to a question about the Labor Department’s stricter limits on child labor by claiming that they could exacerbate the child obesity epidemic by making kids less “active”:

Concern was raised about the proposed Department of Labor’s intent to greatly limit child labor on family farms.

“This farm bill will greatly affect our FFA and 4-H programs,” said Grassley. “Kids won’t be able to help on farms not owned by their parents.

“It’s interesting that this child labor bill goes against Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity initiative,” said Grassley. “How can kids be active if they are limited by this law?“

re: #65 Targetpractice, Worst of Both Worlds

So not having kids working means they can't go out and play, can't join sports teams, can't do so much as ride a bike?

Does not compute!

They can work in the fields or they can be fat lazy fucks. No middle ground!

Abdollah Jassbi resigns as President of Islamic Azad University after near thirty years in position. (Tabnak)

Keep calling your member of congress and ask for world updates. And maybe bitch them out about SOPA.

79 ProGunLiberal  Tue, Jan 17, 2012 2:44:32pm

re: #78 erik_t

Good chance on the SOPA part.

Still, in regards to Iran:

It is rather strange that, after 30 years of service, the Ayatollah decides that the guy isn't good, and demands his resignation, which he gets. That's a bit odd. And to me, another sign of the increasing weakness of the Iranian Mullahs in power.

Exactly what can you do while standing at your front door, lit with flood lights (and a camera running)?

Let's be realistic. Show the kids all cuddled up on the family room couch after school with all four parents at work. Statistically, that's when you should worry.

Okay rant here but college libertarians annoy me. Apparently thinking gay couples should have the same privileges as straight ones means you worship the government. I swear our economics department is producing a bunch of people who flip at the very word government even though they attend a public university. Proud to say I stood up for gay rights and a friend of mine though but damn.

QFT.

I wonder if Juan regrets hitching his buggy to the RWNJ-heavy GOP or if he just wipes away any tears with the 30 pieces of silver wads of cash he got from Fox News after getting himself canned at NPR.

I am reminded of the Chappelle Show skit- What Black People Do or something like that. Newt's an asshole and this shows it in spades.
