Ron Paul poses with the founders of Stormfront, Don Black and son Derek Black.
“I didn‘t write ’em, I disavow them. that’s it.”
“I never read it, I was aware of it ten years after it was written…
Ok, what're they talking about, and what is Ron Paul denying writing?
the press is focusing on the newsletters that went out under his name in the late 1980s and early 1990s. They were called the Ron Paul's Political Report, Ron Paul's Freedom Report, the Ron Paul Survival Report and the Ron Paul Investment Letter.There is no doubt that the newsletters contained utterly racist statements.
So today he denies writing them... or even knowing about them... I see...
Back in 1996...
Dr. Paul, who is running in Texas' 14th Congressional District, defended his writings in an interview Tuesday. He said they were being taken out of context.
Dr. Paul, who served in Congress in the late 1970s and early 1980s, said Tuesday that he has produced the newsletter since 1985 and distributes it to an estimated 7,000 to 8,000 subscribers. A phone call to the newsletter's toll-free number was answered by his campaign staff.
Dr. Paul denied suggestions that he was a racist and said he was not evoking stereotypes when he wrote the columns. He said they should be r! ead and quoted in their entirety to avoid misrepresentation.
He also said the comment about black men in the nation's capital was made while writing about a 1992 study produced by the National Center on Incarceration and Alternatives, a criminal justice think tank based in Virginia.
Citing statistics from the study, Dr. Paul then concluded in his column: `Given the inefficiencies of what DC laughingly calls the criminal justice system, I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal."
Sorry, but if Ron Paul is nominated, Obama will win a second term.
The Democratic-Media Propaganda Machine will ruthlessly plaster the airwaves with this stuff until Ron Paul's numbers plummet way lower than they forced Herman Cain's numbers to drop with unfounded accusations of "sexual harassment".
Now, who is clean, amongst the GOP nomination hopefuls?
Michele Bachmann. She has no baggage of the sort that Cain, Paul, Gingrich, Perry, Romney et al have.
Bachmann has appeared more eager to be seen as a candidate with broader appeal. She pointed to her record in Minnesota where she had had to win over both independents and Democrat voters to take her seat. She has also gone to great lengths to place herself and her worldview in with the Constitution and the values of America's founders.
Perhaps Bachmann's greatest strength displayed during these televised debates is an ability to keep her opponents on the defensive with an adversarial manner that none of the other candidates seem quite capable of. She effortlessly succeeded in making Ron Paul look ridiculous for the views he holds on Iran and brutally exposed his policies as "dangerous." Paul was left spluttering -- "She took my time!" -- but when he resorted to accusing her of getting her facts wrong, he only succeeded in appearing desperate.
And if ever Americans decide they do want a president who combines the unwavering determination of Thatcher with the sunny disposition of Reagan and the staunch moral clarity of both, well then they have it in Michele Bachmann.
