Would you vote for anyone who took money raised by someone associated with the KKK, Neo-Nazis, National Alliance, Stormfront, and White Supremacists? Newt Gingrich says he will not. Both Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney say they will vote for him. I guess they won’t be getting my vote.
There is some interesting gaming going on in Iowa. Ron Paul is slipping among Republicans, but his numbers are up with Dems. Oh, wait, this is an open caucus, and Ron Paul games the system by allowing his robotic followers to lie and cheat their way into straw poll victories. Mitt Romney is playing off him. He therefor lacks the courage to speak out against him like Newt is doing. Both Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney said they would vote for Ron Paul over Barack Obama.
“…The things that most Iowans like about Ron Paul — his economic ideas — are the things he’s least likely to be able to accomplish,” Mr. Santorum said, adding, “He’s been in Congress for 20 years and hasn’t passed a bill.”
But he warned that there would be no check and balance on Mr. Paul’s role as commander in chief. He raised his voice and urged Republicans to carefully study Mr. Paul’s isolationist foreign policy views.
“One thing he can do as commander in chief is he can pull all our troops home,” Mr. Santorum said. “He can shut down our bases in Germany. He can shut down the bases in Japan. He can pull our fleets back. You think the rest of the world is going to say, ‘Oh, that’s great?’ ”
Mr. Paul, who is to arrive in Iowa on Wednesday, was also on Mr. Gingrich’s mind. He is trying to rebuild some of the support that has slipped away in the wake of a blistering negative advertising campaign by Mr. Paul and Mr. Romney and their allies.
As Mr. Gingrich campaigned across eastern Iowa, he told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday that he could not support Mr. Paul if he won the Republican nomination: “I think the choice of Ron Paul or Barack Obama would be a very bad choice for America.”…”
Ron Paul and his backers are cheating by gaming the numbers and registering Dems and libertarians as Republicans.
”...Paul’s Iowa chair, Drew Ivers, recently touted the endorsement of Rev. Phillip G. Kayser, a pastor at the Dominion Covenant Church in Nebraska who also draws members from Iowa, putting out a press release praising “the enlightening statements he makes on how Ron Paul’s approach to government is consistent with Christian beliefs.” But Kayser’s views on homosexuality go way beyond the bounds of typical anti-gay evangelical politics and into the violent fringe: he recently authored a paper arguing for criminalizing homosexuality and even advocated imposing the death penalty against offenders based on his reading of Biblical law.
“Difficulty in implementing Biblical law does not make non-Biblical penology just,” he argued. “But as we have seen, while many homosexuals would be executed, the threat of capital punishment can be restorative. Biblical law would recognize as a matter of justice that even if this law could be enforced today, homosexuals could not be prosecuted for something that was done before.”
Reached by phone, Kayser confirmed to TPM that he believed in reinstating Biblical punishments for homosexuals — including the death penalty — even if he didn’t see much hope for it happening anytime soon. While he said he and Paul disagree on gay rights, noting that Paul recently voted for repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, he supported the campaign because he believed Paul’s federalist take on the Constitution would allow states more latitude to implement fundamentalist law. Especially since under Kayser’s own interpretation of the Constitution there is no separation of Church and State.
“Under a Ron Paul presidency, states would be freed up to not have political correctness imposed on them, but obviously some state would follow what’s politically correct,” he said. “What he’s trying to do, whether he agrees with the Constitution’s position or not, is restrict himself to the Constitution. That is something I very much appreciate.”…”
Why would anyone support a man who:
Used Willis Carto’s subscription list to solicit funds:
“...Carto ran a group called Youth for George Wallace to aid the third party presidential campaign of George Wallace in 1968.When the campaign failed, he converted what remained of the Youth for George Wallace organization into the National Youth Alliance. As National Chairman for this group, Carto was successful in recruiting William Luther Pierce, who later became famous for his authorship of The Turner Diaries.Eventually Carto lost control of the National Youth Alliance to Pierce, who transformed it into the National Alliance, which is today a white nationalist and white separatist political organization…
Willis Carto was known to be a devotee of the writings of Francis Parker Yockey, who was one of a handful of neo-Nazi esoteric writers during the post-World War II era who revered Adolf Hitler. Yockey’s best known book, Imperium, was adopted by Carto as his own guiding ideology and used as the philosophical basis of the National Youth Alliance.
One of the most notable members of the National Youth Alliance was William Luther Pierce, previously a prominent figure in the National Socialist White People’s Party (NSWPP), the successor organisation to the American Nazi Party (ANP) which fell apart after the August 1967 assassination of its leader George Lincoln Rockwell. Pierce joined the National Youth Alliance in 1970 after leaving the NSWPP.
By 1971, a rift had already developed between Carto and Pierce. Accusations by Carto emerged alleging that Pierce had stolen the mailing list of his Liberty Lobby organization and used it to send letters attacking Carto’s group. Tensions continued until the group split into factions, with Pierce and his supporters splitting off into the newly formed National Alliance. This group would come to be one of the largest and most prominent far-right groups in America…..”
Associates with Don Black, a former Grand Wizard of the KKK and a former member of the American Nazi Party. The money bombs Black throws through Stormfront, raise a tremendous amount for Paul. Black also supports Rand Paul!
Then there is David Duke and Bill White. FYI – you might want to check into the relationship Bill White had with some of the WTimes staff awhile back.
“…I have kept quiet about the Ron Paul campaign for a while, because I didn’t see any need to say anything that would cause any trouble. However, reading the latest release from his campaign spokesman, I am compelled to tell the truth about Ron Paul’s extensive involvement in white nationalism.
Both Congressman Paul and his aides regularly meet with members of the Stormfront set, American Renaissance, the Institute for Historic Review, and others at the Tara Thai restaurant in Arlington, Virginia, usually on Wednesdays. This is part of a dinner that was originally organized by Pat Buchanan, Sam Francis and Joe Sobran, and has since been mostly taken over by the Council of Conservative Citizens.
I have attended these dinners, seen Paul and his aides there, and been invited to his offices in Washington to discuss policy.
For his spokesman to call white racialism a “small ideology” and claim white activists are “wasting their money” trying to influence Paul is ridiculous. Paul is a white nationalist of the Stormfront type who has always kept his racial views and his views about world Judaism quiet because of his political position.
I don’t know that it is necessarily good for Paul to “expose” this. However, he really is someone with extensive ties to white nationalism and for him to deny that in the belief he will be more respectable by denying it is outrageous — and I hate seeing people in the press who denounce racialism merely because they think it is not fashionable.
Bill White, Commander
American National Socialist Workers Party…”
