Ron Paul’s Racist Newsletters

Via: The Atlantic

The documents, which include harsh, prejudiced attacks against the black community, are evidence of a libertarian movement trying to find an audience.

So as Ron Paul is on track to win the Iowa caucuses, he is getting a new dose of press scrutiny.

And the press is focusing on the newsletters that went out under his name in the late 1980s and early 1990s. They were called the:

– Ron Paul’s Political Report

– Ron Paul’s Freedom Report

– Ron Paul Survival Report

– Ron Paul Investment Letter.

– There is no doubt that the newsletters contained utterly racist statements.

Some choice quotes:

– “Given the inefficiencies of what DC laughingly calls the criminal justice system, I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.”

– “We are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational.”

– After the Los Angeles riots, one article in a newsletter claimed, “Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks.” 

– One referred to Martin Luther King Jr. as “the world-class philanderer who beat up his paramours” and who “seduced underage girls and boys.”

Another referred to Barbara Jordan, a civil rights activist and congresswoman as “Barbara Morondon,” the “archetypical half-educated victimologist.”
