Ron Paul: racist smears vs. deadly racist policies

Now that Ron Paul has made a strong showing in Iowa, the mainstream media monopoly has geared up to smear him as a “racist” and “dangerous man,” dredging up an old newsletter that was repudiated and debunked 20 years ago.

Paul, apparently, did not exercise vigilant editorial control over this newsletter, whose publisher has stated: “Ron Paul didn’t know about those comments, or know they were written under his name until much later when they were brought to his attention. There were several issues that went out with comments that he would not ordinarily make. He was angry when he saw them.”

After this recycled smear, the Paul campaign released the video testimony of a black man, James Williams, who in 1972 could not get medical help for his ill pregnant wife “because of the difference, me being black and her being white.” The nurse in charge at the hospital even threatened to call the police as Mr. Williams became more desperately insistent. Finally, a young Dr. Ron Paul interceded to help the poor woman (she had a stillborn child), and made sure that the couple was not charged by the hospital. Mr. Williams now supports Paul’s candidacy.

I think this should settle the issue about Paul’s alleged racism, but more importantly we have a case of the kettle calling the pot black: The smears were recycled and propagated by Jamie Kirchick of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, another of the many warmongering Neo-con think tanks that hyped Saddam’s non-existent “weapons of mass destruction” and now cheerlead for yet another war against a more powerful nation — Iran. These policies have been responsible for the deaths of thousands of brown-skinned civilians over the last several decades. Where is the real racism in this debate? Michael Scheuer, former head of the CIA’s bin Laden unit, spells it out:

“Electing anyone but Ron Paul will further increase the already strong chances of widespread Islamist-conducted violence inside the United States. Any other Republican candidate or a reelected Obama will keep lying to Americans by claiming that we are being attacked because of our liberties, gender-equality laws, and elections rather than because of Washington’s constant intervention in the Islamic world. This now two-decade-old lie — which is abetted by most of the media — has hidden from Americans the fact that all of the would-be Islamist attackers who have been captured in this country were motivated by the invasion of Iraq, U.S. support for Israel, or some other U.S. government action in the Muslim world.”

One Response to Ron Paul: racist smears vs. deadly racist policies

  1. John Stott says:

    All truth spoken, views held, that do not conform to the PC agenda will be branded with a label. The very people who shout racism are the very people who are the racists. For these very people cannot hold a view that can be debated, they cannot tolerate difference. I always predicted a backlash against this collectivist hogwash. I am now convinced it was all part of directed history.
    The outcomes of these directed socially dominant themes? Extremism on all sides, entrenchment of views and violence. Then of course that is the desired outcome is it not? Another reason to legislate against free thought, freedom of expression and liberty.
    To hell with them, they reaped and soon they will sow their harvest. For these people do not learn from history our greatest teacher.
