Skip to comments.In ad for newsletter, Ron Paul forecast "race war"

(Reuters) - 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.
Among other things, the articles called the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. a "world-class philanderer," criticized the U.S. holiday bearing King's name as "Hate Whitey Day," and said that AIDS sufferers "enjoy the attention and pity that comes with being sick."
As Paul made a campaign stop in Manchester, Iowa, on Thursday, his Iowa chairman, Drew Ivers, repeated Paul's assertions that he did not write the articles that resurfaced this week in a report in the Weekly Standard magazine.

Cleansing effect of sunlight...
this is, not good.
Ron “Paranoid” Paul.
Ron Paul belongs in an institution.
Paul should retire from the Washington scene, get set up with a home office and good word processing system -—
** AND WRITE CONSPIRACY NOVELS **
...and that is wrong? There are enough first person anecdotes to confirm this as well as the statements by FBI agents that taped MLK. Ever wonder why the Rosenbergs' secret tapes that were for National security were hidden for fifty years and the MLK tapes were hidden by Congress until 2050? Even Ralph Abernathy referred to MLK's peccadilloes.
From Reuters? Disinformation.
And he lied about it:
William F Buckley once led the purge of the neo-Confederates and Birchers from the Republican Party. Time to do another clean-up.
Sounds like that radio show which started with Art Bell.
Typically I don’t trust Reuters but they are simply saying Paul or Paul’s group sent out newsletters with questionable content. That content was accompanied by his signature.
Either he supported what was written at one time, or isn’t willing to take any responsibility for newsletters bearing his name. We already have a president who doesn’t take responsibility.
There was no proof of of fire with Cain, but there was enough smoke to push him out of the race. Ron Paul’s newsletters will be played up to an even greater level if he was to somehow get the nod. Im pretty sure he couldn’t survive that.
Aren’t these the same reporters that discussed at length BO’s cocaine use, NOT!!!
Look at the source.
Ron Paul is a conspiracy kook. He pals around with Truthers, thinks Bradley Manning is a hero and believes quacks like Dennis Kucinich are worthy of cabinet positions (Dept of Peace I presume). Paul is an embarrassment to the Republican party, he is not a conservative and needs to go back to the Libertarian party where he belongs. It is a real shame we even have paulbots here on FR supporting this nut.
I cannot believe that his Texas District kept electing this kook to Congress.
I would vote for him over Obama.
What a surprise. Not. The man is a walking embarrassment. Despite his “awe shucks” folksiness, he’s as wacky as they come. He’s made a habit of explaining terrorist attacks on Americans as being our fault. After all, he says we don’t give the terrorists what they want. He’s not a conservative or a Republican. He’s his own very weird brand of dumbed down Ayn Rand libertarianism.
He admitted to the newsletter stuff back in 1996, in the Houston Chronicle, there was a thread her about it a week ago.
I AM FRIGGIN’ LOVIN’ THIS...... Ron Paul has been running horrible, negative ads against Newt Gingrich in Iowa. Now, the spotlight is on the old doofus brain and he takes his microphone off and walks out on a CNN interviewer when she asks him about his Anti-Semitic, anti-gay, racist, Newsletters that the stupid a**hole wrote himself. Talking about “If you can’t take the heat, stay out of the kitchen......”
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!
