To Understand Rand Paul, Study Ron Paul
The Ron Paul newsletter also denounced the government for creating a national holiday recognizing Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. According to the Ron Paul newsletter, M.L.K Day was actually "hate whitey day."
Is Rand Paul, the self-declared Libertarian, a racist? His father and fellow Libertarian, Rep. Ron Paul had already provided many clues in the past.
Rand Paul, newly-elected Republican Senate candidate in Kentucky, thanks to the Tea Party, says government should not overregulate private businesses; he believes that restaurants should be free not to serve Black folk if that's what they want to do.
In interviews last week, dealing with issues of race and civil rights, Rand Paul kept prefacing his comments by insisting he's not a racist. He tried to play verbal gymnastics but Rachel Maddow destroyed him.
Why should anyone be surprised that Rand Paul harbors obnoxious views and desires on race matters? His father, Ron Paul, made his own views clear judging by several articles that were published in the 1980s and the 1990s in The Ron Paul Political Newsletter.
Following race riots in Los Angeles, the newsletter opined that order was restored only when it came time for Black folks to pick up their welfare checks.
Another article from his newsletter, in 1992, concluded that 95% of Black males in Washington, D.C., were either "semi-criminal or entirely criminal."
This view was expressed shortly after the turmoil that erupted in Los Angeles following the acquittal of the police officers who viciously beat up Rodney King, the unarmed motorist.
The newsletter also denounced the government for creating a national holiday recognizing Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. According to the Ron Paul newsletter, M.L.K Day was actually "hate whitey day."
Articles in the newsletter claimed Dr. King was a world class philanderer who "beat up" his paramours. According to Ron Paul's newsletter, Dr. King even seduced "under age girls and boys" and made a pass at Ralph Abernathy, his legendary colleague in the Civil Rights struggle.
Of course, Ron Paul later claimed that even though he was the publisher of the newsletter, he did not personally author the offending articles and was unaware of them. A racist and a liar to boot.
What's more, Ron Paul had never sought to repudiate the articles until he was exposed during his 2008 Presidential run. His incredible excuse was that publishers don't read every article in their publications. What's more, he's never --up today-- made any attempt to reveal who the authors of the racist articles were; perhaps because the author was actually Ron Paul himself.
Another article attacked Black activists who had agitated for renaming New York City to honor Dr. King. The activists, according to Ron Paul's newsletter, deserved to live in "Welfaria" or "Zooville" or "Rapetown" or "DirtBurg" or "Lazyapple."
So, evidently, the crap did not drop too far from the tree. To understand Rand Paul, study Ron Paul.
