Ron Paul Newsletter Warns Of “Coming Race War”
Is a race war coming in 2013?
Ron Paul opposes income taxes, the United Nations, and federal regulation of just about everything, which has made him the darling of the newly-inspired anti-government Libertarian movement. But we have to wonder what his supporters think of recently-discovered racially-charged direct mail from Ron Paul's campaign operations. Is Paul behind the letters or did a flunky write them unsupervised by the candidate?
In 1985, Ron Paul & Associates started publishing various newsletters which sometimes expressed racist and homophobic views. You know, like blaming black people for passing on AIDS to white people and labeling Martin Luther King, Jr. a "communist philanderer" whose legacy should be called "Hate Whitey Day."
In 2001, Paul blamed them on an anonymous ghostwriter and that, we thought, was that…
But now direct mail advertisements for the newsletter have resurfaced. One mailer advertises Paul's credibility by pointing out that his newsletters have previously exposed the "coming race wars in our big cities" and the "federal-homosexual AIDS cover-up." But most of the mailer warns of a government conspiracy to use newly-designed $100 bills to track the activities of regular Americans and ultimately transfer more power and money to the federal government.
Paul claims to have personally seen these "totalitarian bills" and describes them as being tinted pink, blue, and brown, and "blighted with holograms, diffraction gratings, metal and plastic threads, and chemical alarms."
The congressman's spokesperson says that Paul didn't author the mailer or hold the beliefs the newsletters were endorsing. He was merely putting his name on the publications which, by 1993, he had earned him more than $900,000 from. Is there a conspiracy to cover-up the newsletters and direct mail to ensure the Texan's victory in Iowa? Or are his other opponents, including that other Texan, merely trying to smear him?
