Ron Paul forecast 'race war' in ad for newsletter
Sorry Ron, but you can't escape your racist past no matter how hard you try to hide it.
A direct-mail solicitation for Ron Paul's political and investment newsletters two decades ago warned of a "coming race war in our big cities" and of a "federal-homosexual cover-up" to play down the impact of AIDS.
The eight-page letter, which appears to carry Paul's signature at the end, also warns that the U.S. government's redesign of currency to include different colors - a move aimed at thwarting counterfeiters - actually was part of a plot to allow the government to track Americans using the "new money."
The letter urges readers to subscribe to Paul's newsletters so that he could "tell you how you can save yourself and your family" from an overbearing government.
The letter's details emerge at a time when Paul, now a contender for the Republican nomination for president, is under fire over reports that his newsletters contained racist, anti-homosexual and anti-Israel rants.
Reports of the newsletters' contents have Paul's campaign scrambling to deny that he wrote the inflammatory articles.
It is no longer a credible argument that Ron Paul didn't know about what was in those newsletters. He is, to this day, a conspiracy mongering nutcase which fits in perfectly with the contents of his newsletters back then as well as the now discovered direct mail solicitation.
His ideas are not only poisonous, but the man himself is revealed to be little better than an apologist for the KKK. The GOP doesn't need to be seen as supporting a man like this for any office, much less president.
