More of Ron Paul’s Personal Details in Extremist Newsletters
Would you believe there’s another debate tonight? It will be interesting to see if Chris Wallace grills Ron Paul about those years of racist, conspiracy-mongering newsletters that went out under his name, with many personal details in the articles that strongly suggest Paul was the author.
Sultan Knish has found even more of those pesky personal details, by going through more of the documents posted online at The New Republic.
The January 1991 newsletter features the author mentioning another congressman as “my successor” and talking about his experience as “a flight surgeon in the air force” and then afterward launching into another tirade about Martin Luther King. Again this is Ron Paul’s record, not someone else. The author is clearly Ron Paul.
In that same newsletter the author writes about his time running for President in 1988 on the Libertarian Party ticket. Ron Paul ran for President in 1988 on the Libertarian Party ticket. Here it is completely unambiguous that the author is Ron Paul and that he is expressing his own views about Martin Luther King.
In Feb of 1991 the author writes that he voted against “an expensive federal holiday for this man” referring to King. Of course Ron Paul famously voted against recognizing MLK day as a holiday.
