Thread: Ron Paul's racist ties - has he done enough to separate himself?

If he has to give a speech "disassociating" himself from them, why don't the other candidates have to give speeches disassociating themselves from bigots that want to bomb Muslims into oblivion. Oh wait, the ARE bigots that want to bomb Muslims into oblivion!
    Medved has actually been very charitable to RP. He's had Paul in his show and pointed out the good things he believes. He merely wanted to give Paul a chance distance himself from these racist and anti-semetic groups. Paul refuses to do so, and continues to take their money. As far as I know, he is also continuing to allow them to carry his articles. He's either somewhat sympathetic toward them, or just not too bright.

    The fact that Paul is getting tarnished by this is not evidence in and of itself that he's being unfairly smeared. You assume this, because you're obsessed with him and think he can do no wrong. But you're not able to utter a single word in his defense except that he's being smeared. That's a cop out.

    The only cop out is your cop out in finding a relevant criticism. Do you scan the donors of every other candidate for wrongdoings? Do you scan the whole internet and every piece of published paper for where their writings show up? No, of course you don't. You only hold Paul up to this ridiculous, insane, lunatic, idiotic standard whereby he is supposed vet every one of his supporters. A word in his defense? No defense is needed against such inane accusations. Perhaps next you're going to accuse him of tearing a tag off a pillow.

    If you're so upset with some racist donating to him (which we all know your not), why don't you just send the racist some of your own money to even it out? Spare me. You couldn't give less of a care about racism. You're only interest is trying to find some way to discredit a candidate you oppose. I hope you never complain about liberals trying to shut down debate by playing the race card, since that's what you're doing now. I guess so, since you consider the reprehensible Southern Poverty Law Center a trustworthy authority.

    But are we falling into a trap? This will never be covered by the mainstream media, unless of course (God forbid) Paul somehow managed to get the GOP nomination. Then it will be all you hear about. But hopefully this will help expose the real Ron Paul that I believe most conservatives don't know about.

    He's run afoul of the defenders of the status quo, that's what.

    I hope the Paul bashers can be more specific than that.

    Because I've never heard anything racist from him.

    GOP Operatives Fear Lasting Ron Paul Problem

    "Ron Paul is going to destroy this party if they keep him in there," said Rush Limbaugh the day after the Aug. 11 Fox News-Washington Examiner debate in Ames. "This is nuts on parade."

    Everyone Thinks Ron Paul is Right

    Former CIA specialist and contributor to The American Conservative Philip Giraldi had some interesting insights today into just how much headway Ron Paul and his message is making with a broad spectrum of Americans:

    “I had two interesting experiences over the weekend, totally unrelated to the non-event of Hurricane Irene, which only dropped an inch of rain on northern Virginia. On Friday I went to dinner with a mixed group consisting of the women who are in my wife’s quilting group together with their husbands. All of the men were in their late fifties-early sixties and everyone but me and my wife was an evangelical Christian… Two of the men have been prominent in local Democratic Party circles and the remainder vote Republican. All agreed, to my surprise, that the US economy is broken and that it is the result of the wars and globalism that have marched together hand in hand over the past ten years. They also all agreed, even when they do not support specific policies, that Ron Paul is the only honest man running for the presidency. Which is not to say they all would vote for him, but the approval rating was 100%.”

    Mr. Giraldi then moves on to day two of his weekend:

    “On Saturday we had a reunion lunch with the CIA Rome Station class of 1980. The last time the whole group was together was shortly before the 2008 election, when everyone but me and my wife indicated that they would be voting for McCain-Palin. This time around it was different… I was kidded about my Ron Paul bumper sticker but everyone was quick to add seriously that Paul was the only honest man running, that he had predicted the economic collapse, and that his message has been consistent. They even agreed emphatically when I quoted Paul’s pledge to bring the troops home from overseas on the day after he is elected. This is coming from Cold Warriors, mind you, men and women who spent careers doing without question whatever their government asked them to do. Again, no one said they would vote for Ron Paul but nor did anyone say they would not.”

    Giraldi concludes:

    “Which is all to suggest that maybe something is actually going on in the body politic, that people are willing to listen to Ron Paul even though four years ago they would have thought such an idea ridiculous. And he has a passionate base of supporters. Do you remember the scene in the Godfather where Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) sees a Cuban rebel die for his cause and realizes that the insurgents just might win? Recent opinion polls seem to be saying the same thing. Whether or not Dr. Paul can actually win the presidency, his ideas about the state of the US economy and Washington’s catastrophic foreign policy have reached the mainstream and are resonating.”

    How many times must we explain this?. The racism is with the liberals and their support of affirmative action. In fact they are double racists since they want to persecute white people in the belief that blacks are too inferior to make it on their own.

    The accusation that RP is racist has been thoroughly demolished... yet, a few morons are still out propagating this foolishness.

    In his own words:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CoQWAXuUyI&feature=re lated"]RON PAUL FORCEFULLY RESPONDS TO RACIST RUMORS - YouTube[/ame]

    Search youtube, you'll find all sorts of videos from just about every kind of minority talking about how RP is not racist.

    Not everyone. Did you hear the round of boos from the Tea Party debate? Unfortunately, Ron Paul is not electable. I like him as well, but he'd do himself a better justice if he didn't run with the GOP. For the people that would actually vote for Ron Paul, being a member of either side loses him credibility. He will never be respected among the Republican media of Fox News and of course MSNBC will only support the Left. He'd be better off going the Ross Perot route. With the media outlets these days and the internet, he could add intense pressure on the Republican and Democratic Party debates to allow him in.
