Gibson Interviews TNR Author: Ron Paul’s Paleo-Conservativism, Racism, Apartheid, etc.

Here are some of the newsletters that the TNR author found (pdf):




LGF has already known about said newsletters for months, though. You can find more of Crazy Ron’s rants here:

Ron Paul’s Old Newsletter Revealed


It seems that the man himself wrote the newsletter, it wasn’t a ghost-writer as was claimed:

    The peeps are stupid-glued to Paul. For some reason, and I don’t know why, this is the only political campaign in the 21st century where racist, bigoted, and otherwise insane revelations can bounce off the candidate and go ignored.

    Ron Paul, at any rate, is still unelectable.

    Thank god.

    Oh — typo (‘Rascism’) in the heading, Konservo.

    Denounce Rascism!…lol.

    That won’t become a trend, rest assured.

  7. “The quotations in The New Republic article are not mine and do not represent what I believe or have ever believed. I have never uttered such words and denounce such small-minded thoughts.

    “In fact, I have always agreed with Martin Luther King, Jr. that we should only be concerned with the content of a person’s character, not the color of their skin. As I stated on the floor of the U.S. House on April 20, 1999: ‘I rise in great respect for the courage and high ideals of Rosa Parks who stood steadfastly for the rights of individuals against unjust laws and oppressive governmental policies.’

    “This story is old news and has been rehashed for over a decade. It’s once again being resurrected for obvious political reasons on the day of the New Hampshire primary.

    “When I was out of Congress and practicing medicine full-time, a newsletter was published under my name that I did not edit. Several writers contributed to the product. For over a decade, I have publically taken moral responsibility for not paying closer attention
    to what went out under my name.”

    Definition of ghostwriter: “a person who writes one or numerous speeches, books, articles, etc., for another person who is named as or presumed to be the author.”

  9. Ron Paul dice que una otra persona escribió esas cosas, y la definición de “ghostwritting” es para demonstrar que el uso del persona primera en los diarios no indica que el autor fue Ron Paul.

    There is a genocide being comitted against White people in South Africa. It’s true. Your guest says things like, “oh my gosh, Ron Paul predicted a Holocaust against White people in South Africa.” Yet he does not say if this is true or not.

    It is true. White people in Zimbabwe have had their homes and farms confiscated. Whites have been expelled and ethnically cleansed from that nation. There are mass rapes and attacks against Whites in South Africa. It is true.

    Ron Paul is Pro-Nazi.
    He’s a scumbag!

  13. Sergei,

    You know that this is the second time he’s used the “Oops, I wasn’t paying attention” excuse. There is more than one newsletter in question here.

    If Ron Paul can’t keep track of what’s being said in his name, how could he possibly run a country?
    Jason, you’re a Paultard, aren’t you?

    Hey look Umar is finally right about something!

    January 9, 2008 at 3:54 pm

  15. “You know that this is the second time he’s used the ‘Oops, I wasn’t paying attention’ excuse.”

    Yeah, it’s the same set of incidents. Were you expecting him to change his story?

    “If Ron Paul can’t keep track of what’s being said in his name, how could he possibly run a country?”

    I never said that he could.

  16. Sergei,

    This is a different set of incidents. Prior to the TNR article all that was known is this:

    These are different newsletters (apparently there are been several) published under Paul’s name. If you follow the links above, you will see that the writer of the newsletter in question had knowledge of Paul’s wife and grandchildren, this isn’t just a political matter, that was a personal note. It still could be a “ghostwriter” but with all of the circumstantial evidence… hmm… I’m not going to remove the quotations.

    January 9, 2008 at 7:13 pm

  17. “This is a different set of incidents.”

    No, it’s more details about the previous set of incidents that have recently come to light. Look at the dates on the newsletters. They’re from the same time period as the original batch.

    As for the writer “having knowledge of Paul’s wife and grandchildren”, isn’t that something you would expect his ghostwriter to know? It’s not like he just approached some random person on the street and offered him a job. An associate of Ron Paul’s has indicated that he and the ghostwriter were (and are) on a first name basis. It appears that Paul is an exceptionally bad judge of character, but then, we already knew that.

  18. Actually, it is a different set of circumstances. And how in the world could so many comments be published time and again over such a time span and the man say that he didn’t know. In fact, Paul has changed his story over the years and he waffled badly.

    It’s not just the comments, either – look at who he is tied to – look at those ties (and I am not talking about Don Black) – look at the associations he has both past and present. Couple those associations with those remarks – and you can see the REAL Ron Paul

    Hi konservo! It’s funny watching Paul’s supporters deny this evidence – it’s also funny watching their enthusiasm fall off after a miserable showing in Iowa and New Hampshire.

    It’s not over yet, however. He won’t get the nomination – but he still has a following and is in a powerful position.

  19. Hey nicole!

    Did you see this:

    Recently, James Kirchick published an article in the far-leftist New Republic called, Angry White Man, The Bigoted Past of Ron Paul (posted January 8, 2008) kirchick points out that Paul had this to say about me in 1990 shortly after my race for the U.S. Senate. It should be noted that I have never tried to increase my status, by previously publishing or remarking about the positive things that Paul wrote about me and and my campaign issues. The New Republic has published this now however, and since it is now known by all in the media I will quote it now. Here it is…

    Duke is fully convinced that Paul is the author! And now that everything is out in the open, he doesn’t feel that he needs to pretend any longer!


    January 10, 2008 at 2:26 pm

  20. LOL! Duke just gave him away, huh? Actually, when I read that I thought, “hmmm…a Ron Paul/David Duke ticket? Nothing would surprise me out of the Paul ranks at this juncture.

    The Kirchick article has brought a lot of things to the forefront and, there is so much more. Keep up the good work…we need to get the word out.

    You know what’s funny?
    Ideological camps on all sides of the spectrum, can’t understand why Ron Paul has a following.
    I’ll admit that I don’t know why.🙂

  22. Well, I don’t either. And after watching the debates in South Carolina tonight all that I can say is OMG! Every time he opened his mouth I couldn’t help but laugh. He was just so far off…I mean really off!

    Funny how he has attracted people from both the right and the left – and the rest of us, as you said, can’t understand why. That’s a good thing, though…sometimes it’s better not to understand that which is psychotic…maybe…I hope…
