Ron Paul: No Problem with Donations from Neo-Nazis
The Ron Paul campaign not only refuses to disavow the support of racist scum like Don Black of Stormfront, they’re glad to take his money and have no plans to return it: Paul keeps white supremacist donation.
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul has received a $500 campaign donation from a white supremacist, and the Texas congressman doesn’t plan to return it, an aide said Wednesday.
Don Black, of West Palm Beach, recently made the donation, according to campaign filings. He runs a Web site called Stormfront with the motto, “White Pride World Wide.” The site welcomes postings to the “Stormfront White Nationalist Community.”
“Dr. Paul stands for freedom, peace, prosperity and inalienable rights. If someone with small ideologies happens to contribute money to Ron, thinking he can influence Ron in any way, he’s wasted his money,” Paul spokesman Jesse Benton said. “Ron is going to take the money and try to spread the message of freedom.” …
Black said he supports Paul’s stance on ending the war in Iraq, securing U.S. borders and his opposition to amnesty for illegal immigrants. “We know that he’s not a white nationalist. He says he isn’t and we believe him, [Nudge, nudge. – ed.] but on the issues, there’s only one choice,“ Black said Wednesday.
”We like his stand on tight borders and opposition to a police state,“ Black told The Palm Beach Post earlier. On his Web site, Black says he has been involved in ”the White patriot movement for 30 years.“
