Don Black, head racist of the hate site Stormfront, makes it clear that for many years Ron Paul appealed directly to the white supremacist subculture: Stormfront Founder Don Black Says White Supremacists Thought Ron Paul Was One of Us.
Ron Paul posing with Don & Derek Black at the 2007 Values Voter debateRon Paul was a hot topic this week on the talk radio show hosted by prominent white supremacist Don Black and his son Derek. Mr. Black said he received Mr. Pauls controversial newsletters when they were first published about two decades ago and described how the publications were perceived by members of the white supremacist movement.
Everybody, all of us back in the 80′s and 90′s, felt Ron Paul was, you know, unusual in that he had actually been a Congressman, that he was one of us and now, of course, that he has this broad demographicbroad base of support, Mr. Black said on his broadcast yesterday.
And of course, who would know better than a member of the American Nazi Party how important it is to keep ones true beliefs hidden?
Mr. Black said he understood why Mr. Paul would want to distance himself from the newsletters.
It was written in the first person frequently and, you know, a normal person would have thought that Ron Paul must have written this, or at least whoever wrote it must have did so with the approval of Ron Paul, but things change, Mr. Black said. So, now that he has this new base of support of course, hes havingfrantically trying to disavow himself from the newsletters, and I agree the newsletters were a little over the top.
Get that? A former Klansman and overt neo-Nazi says Ron Pauls language back in the bad old days was over the top.
What he really means: a little too revealing.
Also calling in to Blacks hate radio show this week to sing the praises of Ron Paul: white supremacist superstar David Duke.
Former KKK Grand Wizard and Louisiana Congressman David Duke, who was something of a mentor to Mr. Black during their days in the Klan, called in to discuss Mr. Paul. Though he said he wasnt ready to make an official endorsement, Mr. Duke explained why hell be voting for Mr. Paul.
Again, I go back to that, you know, traditional topic that I always talk about, you know, the powers of international Zionisma power in banking, a power in media, a power in government influence, in campaign financea power thats, you know, hurting the values of this country on behalf of Israel, Mr. Duke said. So, I would vote for Ron Paul at this moment because hes one of the few candidates who have policies in this regard and this realm that I wholeheartedly support, and thats why Id vote for him.
It should be noted that there are also allegations by another neo-Nazi, Bill White (a personal friend of right wing blogger Robert Stacy McCain), that Ron Paul went far beyond simply expressing views with which white supremacists could agree. In 2007 White posted the following comment at Vanguard News Network:
I have kept quiet about the Ron Paul campaign for a while, because I didnt see any need to say anything that would cause any trouble. However, reading the latest release from his campaign spokesman, I am compelled to tell the truth about Ron Pauls extensive involvement in white nationalism.
Both Congressman Paul and his aides regularly meet with members of the Stormfront set, American Renaissance, the Institute for Historic Review, and others at the Tara Thai restaurant in Arlington, Virginia, usually on Wednesdays. This is part of a dinner that was originally organized by Pat Buchanan, Sam Francis and Joe Sobran, and has since been mostly taken over by the Council of Conservative Citizens.
I have attended these dinners, seen Paul and his aides there, and been invited to his offices in Washington to discuss policy.
For his spokesman to call white racialism a small ideology and claim white activists are wasting their money trying to influence Paul is ridiculous. Paul is a white nationalist of the Stormfront type who has always kept his racial views and his views about world Judaism quiet because of his political position.
I dont know that it is necessarily good for Paul to expose this. However, he really is someone with extensive ties to white nationalism and for him to deny that in the belief he will be more respectable by denying it is outrageous and I hate seeing people in the press who denounce racialism merely because they think it is not fashionable.

I have history with Mr. White myself; he directly threatened my life in 2008, and tried to find my home address and the addresses of my family members.

That thread got zotted. As will this one.
Just curious - why would they be zotted?
(In fact, I'm surprised that it's allowed to be quoted or excerpted on FR. You may be wading in dangerous territory.)
That thread is still alive.
Thread is still there.
LGF is like Hot Air after Michelle Malkin left, they seem to play for all sides but they are still good at digging and exposing RINOs like this.
I stand (sit actually) corrected.
But it remains to be seen if that thread - and this one - remain.
FR has a policy on mentioning or referring to SF. It just ain’t done.
But - since there is a direct connect between SF and RoPaul - these may be allowed.
Ron Paul must be a mental case. Birds of a feather. Didn’t Code Pink back him at one time as well?
There is a reason why RP has such fanatical support - many of his supporters are fanatics of a certain type.
Post anything negative about Paul on many forums and you will soon feel like a Stormfront just ran through your office.
If he had a racist bone in his body how do you explane this?
I think it can’t be linked to or referenced in a positive or supportive way (obviously) however, if they are connected to the news it can be mentioned, just like all the JT Ready stuff in Arizona recently.
Campaign propaganda. I remember David Duke running claiming he wasn’t a racist and he stood for equality. Yea right.
Well, Paul endorsed Cynthia McKinney - nuff said.
I think Code Pink endorsed him.
So he is just an anti-Semite but not a racist, even though he has said he wrote some of those racists news letters - ok.
I remember Al Gore's supporters saying the exact same garbage about George Bush when this same Don Black endorsed GWB...the racism charge is a dirty tactic best left to the Obama supporters
The difference is
1. GHWB disavoud Black’s endorsement.
2. This is more than just Black saying he likes Paul, the claim is he regularly lunches with them.
3. Bush didn’t have years racist and antisemitic writings he has to explain.
No, a much closer analogy would be 1992 when the Republicans ran David Duke out of their party when he tried to sneak in.
Ron Paul accepted a donation from Stormfront and kept it after that was discovered. Ron Paul does not repudiate his racialist supporters. To them that is tantamount to agreement.
“Isn’t there enough to complain about Paul’s policies (i.e. oblivious to the threats from Iran) without descending into the old leftist tactic of accusing your opponents of being a “racist”?”
The difference is when the shoes are a perfect fit they need to be worn.
Everything else aside
Am I the only one who thinks it’s a tad ironic that the leader of a white supremacist group has a last name of “Black”
The other guy mentioned in the story, Bill White, at least seems to be more appropriately named.
Oh, and Ron Paul is nuts.
Can’t believe you’re pulling crap off of “Little Green Footballs”. Sheesh.
Me, too. I couldn't believe it when I saw
LGF that site cited here.
Facts are stubborn things.
The Paul cult wanted their crackpot candidate to get attention. They are getting their wish.
Really? After they turned all squishy and moderate during the Bush Administration?
In case anybody wonders about the Ron Paul - Stormfront connection...
From the Federal Election Commission:
My experience is that even if you show paulbots “facts”, they do not beleive them. I showed using FEC reporting that the military doesn’t overwhelmingly support Paul, but nope nada they don’t beleive it and just keep repeating what is on Paul’s on website.
Paulbots, Obamites, Moonies...
They're all cultists, so far as I can see.
