In 1981, a lawyer tried to subpoena Ron Paul to testify in the trial of Don Black, a Grand Wizard for the Ku Klux Klan who would later go on to found the white supremacist, neo-Nazi website, Stormfront. Black was charged along with two other Klansmen with planning to violently overthrow the small Caribbean country of Dominica in what they called Operation Red Dog. While a judge refused to subpoena Paul, Don Black would come back to haunt him many years later.
In 1981 a group of American and Canadian white supremacists lead by Klansman and mercenary, Michael (Mike) Perdue planned on taking over a small West Indian country called Dominica by overthrowing the government and Prime Minister Eugenia Charles and restoring its previous prime minister, Patrick Johns into power. The group planned to create an Aryan paradise in Dominica and make money through casinos, cocaine and brothels.
On the day the group of white supremacists were supposed to travel to Dominica, they were arrested by ATF agents and were found with over thirty automatic weapons, shotguns, rifles, handguns, dynamite, ammunition, a confederate flag and a Nazi flag. The plan would be dubbed The Bayou Of Pigs after the failed invasion of Cuba.
The leader of the group, Michael Perdue, would plead guilty to planning the coup and turned states evidence. Perdue would testify that several other people helped organize and fund the coup and that two Texas politicians were aware of the plan. Among those Perdue implicated were infamous white supremacist, David Duke, former Texas Governor, John Connally and Congressman, Ron Paul whom he claimed knew about the plot. Connally was credited with helping Paul win his first congressional election.
A judge refused to subpoena Paul and Connally despite the fact that Perdue had claimed that both of them were aware of the plot. Don Blacks friend and fellow KKK Grand Wizard, David Duke was called to testify before a grand jury but claimed that he would take the Fifth Amendment and never testified. While Duke was never charged with a crime, several books points to Duke as the organizer who connected Perdue to the other mercenary Klansmen and the people who funded their endeavor. (1 2 3) Everyone else implicated by Perdue was charged with the plot.
Perdue implicated three men as funders of the plot, L.E. Matthews of Jackson, Mississippi, James C. White of Houston, and David Dukes close friend and backer, J.W. Kirkpatrick. Kirpatrick would kill himself before he could stand trial and White and Matthews would be acquitted in court. Former Prime Minister of Dominica, Patrick Johns would be sentenced to 12 years in prison for his part of the plot. Michael Perdue, Don Black and seven other Klansmen would be sentenced to only 3 years in prison.
Ron Paul has never made a statement denying knowledge of the plot despite the fact that he was implicated by Perdue and almost subpoenaed. Two of the people involved in the plot, Don Black and David Duke have gone on to become two of the most prominent white supremacists of the modern era, and also two of Pauls most controversial supporters.
Top 10 Racist Ron Paul Friends, Supporters
Paul would be once again tied to Don Black 26 years after the Bayou Of Pigs. After it was revealed that Black donated $500 dollars to the Ron Paul Presidential campaign, Ron Pauls campaign refused to give it back. Paul was photographed with Black and his son by David Dukes former assistant, Jamie Kelso who was an organizer for Ron Paul and the owner of white supremacist sites, WhiteNewsNow.com and TheWhiteRace.com and a moderator for Blacks neo-Nazi website, Stormfront.
Black would become one of Pauls most enthusiastic supporters and helped rally the white supremacist community around Paul, through Stormfront. Paul would praise another Operation Red Dog planner, David Duke in his newsletters and Duke would return the favor calling him our king and endorsing him for President.
This would not be the first time Paul was tied to white supremacists. In 80s, Paul claimed that the best source of his campaign donations came from a list from notorious neo-Nazi, Willis Cartos publication, The Spotlight. In the 90s, Pauls newsletters were originally discovered from an online neo-Nazi directory. As recently as 2006, Paul was scheduled to appear on David Dukes white supremacist protégé, James Edwards radio show, The Political Cesspool.
Ron Pauls White Supremacist Radio Connections
Given the scrutiny given to presidential candidates, shouldnt Pauls connection to an attempted violent invasion of a small island by white supremacists be re-investigated. If the media investigates every accusation of affairs or sexual harassment for Herman Cain or Newt Gingrich, shouldnt they investigate accusations that Paul knew about a white supremacist plot to violently overthrow the government of a small Black island, especially with Pauls other connections to white supremacists?
Wow..what are you thinking? You are trying to be reasonable and an adult. That will never play.
from the NY Times link you posted:
- The Federal authorities said today that John Connally, former Governor of Texas, and Representative Ron Paul, Republican of Texas, had no connection with a plot to overthrow the government of a Caribbean island-—
So much for “Ron Paul Was Implicated In Failed White Supremacist Island Invasion”. Not true. He was not implicated.Article written by Casey Gane-McCalla, Lead Blogger

Your source is a community organizer from Obama’s alma mater. And a blog “FOR BLACK AMERICA”. I generally don’t accept allegations of racism from racist websites.
Believing in the states’ sovereignty to pass its own laws is free from a centralized government is not against libertarian ideals. And most libertarians would fight for similar restrictions on state governments in which they live. What you are suggesting is that libertarian ideals would be against states existing in the 1st place, which is not something I have heard anyone believe.
And if you read the Bill of Rights, each amendment specifies the scope. The 1st clearly states what entity it is aimed at in the first word. If you followed it literally, then the states should not have to pay attention to that one, because it is not for them.
I really dont think most people want limited government anymore.
Wrong. A warlock...and possibly a goblin.
What did he do to Leroy Gingrich?
But you left the link for the Obama-worshiping "News One for Black America"?
The issue is what does the actual Constitution - not the “living” one - do. Go read the Bill of Rights, the 14th, and, especially, Freund’s book and get back to me. The short answer, however, is that the “incorporation” doctrine was simply invented by judges.
You can blame my parents for my reasonableness :)
There is a strong union presence in the refineries. While Freeport and Lake Jackson aren’t as infested by unions as Port Arthur or Beaumont, unions, as you know, work across political subdivision lines to advance their agenda. I would also point out that the strength of the unions is seldom thesize of their membership in relation to the population, but rather their money and organization.
RP’s views on labor law are anathema to the unions, and they would have welcomed an opportunity to get a friendly prosecutor to go after him or to have hung this as a scandal around his neck. The fact that they didn’t do this at a time when elected Rs were rare in TX tells the story.
“You are wasting your time here. A form of political dementia has overtaken FR, and rational discussion of candidates is not allowed.”
You got that right!
I find myself just sitting here staring at the screen in disbelief anymore.
It’s as though the obvious fact (all the choices suck) is largely ignored, but what the heck? Let’s have a game anyway!
And the level and degree of venom is unreal.
Aticles like this one would have been laughed offline not so long ago. Now they are clutched at immediately in a blind frenzy to club “the other guy”.
What’s lost entirely is an semblance of conservative thought or philosophy at all.
Sad day when this is what the supposed “right” has come down to.
On Dec 29, 2011 alterPaul said he knew of the letters (those racist and anti-Semitic ones) and probably contributed to them.
alterPaul is a racist, an anti-Semite and a 9/11 truther.
alterPaul late last year blamed America for the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
At the very least he is insane and the worst exactly like those of us who pay attention say he is.
I read a couple Spotlight articles back in the 80s, before we went overseas. We were living in Arkansas and i found them in an office of some kind, I’m trying to remember just what, while waiting for an appointment. Anyway, they looked lie insurrection type stuff to me. Very conspiracy-oriented stuff. It was eery.
Sorry to keep bothering you, Absolutely, but this one is dynamite!
LOL..I hear ya!
Ron Paul’s foreign “policy” makes HIM look like a tiddlywink.
