Ron Paulís Base
Frum's Forum ^ | David Frum

Posted on 01/03/2012 3:30:43 PM PST by mnehring

Here’s another tragic misunderstanding of Ron Paul’s message of human freedom: Paul has just gained David Duke’s endorsement. This week, the former KKK Grand Wizard telephoned into the radio show hosted by Stormfront founder Don Black to announce his support, and the two men had the following conversation.

Ron 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. Paul’s 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. Former KKK Grand Wizard and Louisiana Congressman David Duke also phoned in to explain why he’s voting for Mr. Paul.

“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 demographic–broad base of support,” Mr. Black said on his broadcast yesterday.

Mr. Black is a former Klansman and member of the American Nazi Party who founded the “white nationalist” website Stormfront in 1995. He donated to Mr. Paul in 2007 and has beenphotographed with the candidate. Mr. Paul has vocal supporters in Stormfront’s online forum.

Black said on air he does not regard Paul as “currently” a white nationalist. To which David Duke answered:

Again, I go back to that, you know, traditional topic that I always talk about, you know, the powers of international Zionism–a power in banking, a power in media, a power in government influence, in campaign finance–a power that’s, 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 he’s one of the few candidates who have policies in this regard and this realm that I wholeheartedly support, and that’s why I’d vote for him.”

A politician isn’t answerable for the antics of every one of his supporters. But there’s surely a reason, isn’t there, that racists, anti-Semites, 9/11 Truthers, and Holocaust deniers are so strongly attracted to the Paul campaign. They hear something. They continue to hear it too, no matter how firmly Ron Paul’s more mainstream supporters clamp their hands over their own ears.

Paul winks at these people while publicly denying any association so they continue to cheer him on.

Looks like the racists have read and enjoyed the Ron Paul newsletters. They know when they have found one of their own.

This is another painful reminder of what’s wrong with Run Paul; it’s like seeing Obama at the Reverend Wright’s Church, or knowing that Senator Byrd was once a Grand Kleagle in the KKK. Decent people don’t associate with anti-Semites and racists. Obama failed that test. Paul has failed that test. Ronald Reagan did not. He never accepted any support from these vile sorts.

Funny, Paul supporters are more offended by Frum than David Duke.

It finally dawned on me the other day why otherwise reasonable and intelligent people would support this nut-job. Every person who I know who likes Ron Paul has a strong anti-authoritarian streak which sometimes overrules their better judgment.

He winks at these people, just as he winks at his “I always vote no on spending” after he loads these bills that will pass with crap.
Paul is a fraud.

No, F@#k David Dude. I'm just as offended by people such as milquetoast moderate RINOs who think that liberal Frum is the man.

Mark Levin just referred to one of these dopey supporters who jam talk show lines defending the indefensible Ron Paul as "brown shirts". He's got their number down alright.

This is what a lot of Ron Paul supporters actually believe. Ron Paul may never specifically say this stuff, but he also never seems to shoot these nutty conspiracy theorists down either. He does not disassociate himself from them, and by not doing so he encourages yet more insanity.

Pretty much ever nutty tin foil hatter I know loves Ron Paul. Paul literally has a kook coalition consisting of wackadoodles from all over the country to include illuminati conspiracy theorists, 9-11 truthers, people who believe the Bilderberg Group is some dark conspiracy out to control us, near every stripe of Jew haters who believe Israel is the force of evil on earth conspiring to engineer nearly every bad thing that ever happens (including 9-11), etc, etc.

Oh, and I did some checking, Frum has been mostly pushing for Santorum. He has been somewhat negative on Romney too.

I'm a person who likes Paul and I consider myself pro-authoritarian.

I simply want all authority to recognize and subordinate itself to the chain-of-command especially to Him who is at the top of it!

Romans 13:1
Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

Proverbs 21:1
The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.

Psalm 2
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
