Suddenly, That Kook, Ron Paul Is Attracting Big Time Media Attention

If Ron Paul had just gone away like he was supposed to- the big media outlets could have said, "see we told you so."

Just when the media thought they were in control of elections and exposure up jumps a bunch of angry voters who maintain that voters- not the media- still elect Presidents. Even ignored Presidential candidates.

I am beginning to think that the blogosphere, the last bastion of truly free speech, may become a force to be reckoned with. I sure hope so.

People are very angry. They have been- for about three years. Bankers have absolutely plundered us- five trillion in the last three years alone. People are now figuring out that electing a guy who hates the FED might just be what the doctor ordered. Pun intended.

He's not getting the kind of attention he should-like some of this.

• "Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks" read a typical article from the June 1992 “Special Issue on Racial Terrorism"

• Racial apocalypse was the most persistent theme of the newsletters; a 1990 issue warned of “The Coming Race War,” and an article the following year about disturbances in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, D.C., was entitled “Animals Take Over the D.C. Zoo.”

• Paul alleged that Martin Luther King Jr., “the world-class philanderer who beat up his paramours,” had also “seduced underage girls and boys.” The man who would later proclaim King a “hero” attacked Ronald Reagan for signing legislation creating the federal holiday in his name, complaining, “We can thank him for our annual Hate Whitey Day.”

• No conspiracy theory was too outlandish for Paul’s endorsement. One newsletter reported on the heretofore unknown phenomenon of “Needlin’,” in which “gangs of black girls between the ages of 12 and 14” roamed the streets of New York and injected white women with possibly HIV-infected syringes. Another newsletter warned that “the AIDS patient” should not be allowed to eat in restaurants because “AIDS can be transmitted by saliva,” a strange claim for a physician to make.

• Paul gave credence to the theory, later shown to have been the product of a Soviet disinformation effort, that AIDS had been created in a U.S. government laboratory at Fort Detrick, Maryland.

• Three months before far-right extremists killed 168 Americans in Oklahoma City, Paul’s newsletter praised the “1,500 local militias now training to defend liberty” as “one of the most encouraging developments in America.” And he offered specific advice to antigovernment militia members, such as, “Keep the group size down,” “Keep quiet and you’re harder to find,” “Leave no clues,” “Avoid the phone as much as possible,” and “Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.”

• In a March 2009 interview, Paul entertained [a] claim that NORTHCOM, the U.S. military’s combatant command for North America, is “taking over” the country. “The average member of Congress probably isn’t a participant in the grand conspiracy,” Paul reassured the fevered host, essentially acknowledging that such a conspiracy exists. “We need to take out the CIA.”

• In a January 2010 speech, Paul announced, “There’s been a coup, have you heard? It’s the CIA coup” against the American government. “They’re in businesses, in drug businesses,” the congressman added.

This is a presidential candidate?

Can you imagine what Barack Obama's billion dollars would do to Ron Paul and his KKK, Stormfront, racist, and antisemitic background should he somehow gain the GOP nomination?

Ron Paul is a flat-out loon that legacy media likes to promote as a legitimate candidate for one reason and one reason alone: to damage the GOP.

Doug is exactly correct-Paul is getting good press and good polls(PPP is a liberal organization) now. Obama would love to see Paul run. There is absolutely nothing out there like this on any of the other people running.

Paul is right about the FED and we are way off the Constitutional rails. So? He's a fucking nut case. As I've said before he would get us into a war with his isolationist policies. Top it off with this racist crap.

Axlerod would eat this guy's lunch

Wow. New piece up.

Gonna have to disagree here. Not seeing this as a big deal killer. Respect those that think Indonesian Muslim backgrounds should be kept secretive....associations with terrorists.

I cannot prove that Paul is responsible for the content despite common sense assumptions to the contrary.

Get the best evidence. You must read the newsletters first hand.

Perhaps you have. I'd like to see the press vet Paul. That is what they should have done with our Indonesian Muslim.
