Exposed. Proof of Ron Paul's racism and lies. Considering how anti-Jewish he is, this is hardly surprising, but it is unrecoverable. He is done.
If you noticed in the photo images of the Ron Paul Newsletters over at Conservatives News you will see that one of the images clearly shows Ron Paul listed as "editor."
Now move on to this link provided in the story...a link that takes one to a Ron Paul interview
with CNN's Wolf Blitzer on the newsletters. At 2:45 into the interview Blitzer asks about "how did this stuff" (various racist nonsense) get into the newsletter. "Who wrote it?"
To which Ron Paul responds:
"I have no idea. Have you ever heard of a publisher of a magazine not knowing every single thing ....The editor is responsible for the daily activity."
And who is listed in the pictured newsletter as the editor?
That's right: Ron Paul.
Big problem - and growing. (American Spectator) hat tip Doc Washburn
Weekly Standard opines, "While Paul’s views on Israel certainly place him outside the American, never mind Republican, mainstream, there is an even more elementary reason the RJC was right to exclude him from its event. It is Paul’s lucrative and decades-long promotion of bigotry and conspiracy theories, for which he has yet to account fully, and his continuing espousal of extremist views, that should make him unwelcome at any respectable forum, not only those hosted by Jewish organizations."
Who Wrote The Ron Paul Newsletters? Ron Paul Wrote Them – Clear Proof Conservative News (hat tip Fern)
People wonder who wrote the Ron Paul newsletters.
First, if you’re new to this topic, it’s important because for around two decades, he had newsletters written that contained much racist content. He financially profited off of the newsletters. You can read about it more in depth here .
The purpose of this entry is to answer a simple question.
Who wrote the Ron Paul newsletters?
In a 1996 interview with the Dallas Morning News, Ron Paul was asked about his newsletters. In that interview he defended them. You can read a copy of the interview here. You can purchase a hard copy of that interview here.
In the interview, he did not deny he made the statement about the swiftness of black men.
“If you try to catch someone that has stolen a purse from you, there is no chance to catch them,” Dr. Paul said.
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 inef! ficiencies 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.”
“These aren’t my figures,” Dr. Paul said Tuesday. “That is the assumption you can gather from” the report
From this interview we gather Ron Paul knew about the content, defended the content and wrote the content.
Before we look at internal evidence, here’s a brief sample of his offensive sayings.
”"We don’t think a child of 13 should be held responsible as a man of 23. That’s true for most people, but black males age 13 who have been raised on the streets and who have joined criminal gangs are as big, strong, tough, scary and culpable as any adult and should be treated as such.
“Opinion polls consistently show that only about 5 percent of blacks have sensible political opinions,”
“I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal,”
“we are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational.”
Source (As if the Paulbots care. But hey.)Let’s look at some internal evidence.
From the above picture we see the newsletter clearly implies it’s written in his name. The arrow points to a sentence that is said in the first person. This would indicate it is Ron Paul writing and not someone else.
The above picture has another first person reference. Indicating it’s not another author.
The above includes his signature. Once again indicating he’s doing the writing.
