By Nicole Nichols
Some people love cat fights…they really get amused. Usually, I find them ridiculous and demeaning to those involved, as well as those cheering them on. However, the feline frenzy that is taking place on VNN between April Gaede, ersatz mother of singing duo Prussian Blue, and Elisha Strom, estranged wife of the sexually twisted Kevin Alfred Strom is just too outlandish to walk away from.
The latest round started when Elisha Strom announced that her estranged husband was probably going to enter into a plea agreement with the prosecution and admit to being in possession of child pornography.
Now, there are those in the VNN group, as well as Stormfront, who still refuse to accept Strom's guilt. In spite of all the evidence and the admissions made by Strom himself, they believe that it was his wife, Elisha, who set Kevin up. There are also those who believe there is nothing wrong with what Kevin Alfred Strom did. Consequently, Elisha knew that she would generate a lot of discussion and a lot of unfriendly conversation.
Among those long time supporters of Kevin has been April Gaede who was quick to point a finger at Elisha on Stormfront once the news of Strom's arrest hit. Elisha was equally quick to fight back against claims that she had set her husband up for this fall. Questions about all of this have surrounded the case for almost a year now and accusations have been flying for just as long.
The recent event was brought about by Elisha Strom's statement on VNN claiming…
"Although she admits to being aware of Kevin's "problem" more than a year and a half before he was arrested, April Gaede continued to send Kevin photographs of her daughters almost up to the day of his arrest. Then April comes on here and blames me for causing pictures of her kids to be used by Kevin in the nasty way they were. I suppose April also blames me for her sending dozens of photographs of her daughters to David Lane, even after he admitted on television that he sat in his prison cell looking at those pictures and thinking of her daughters in a more "grown up" way."
It should be noted that Kevin was found masturbating to pictures of the Prussian Blue twins, Lynx and Lamb. He had pasted their heads onto the bodies of much younger children. The reference to David Lane, now deceased, refers to a comment made by Lane in a recent documentary about April and her girls. Lane, sentenced to 190 years for his part in robberies and murders, called the girls, who were 14 at the time, his "sweetheart fantasies."
Also, referring to that very same film, Elisha had the following to say…
"April called her daughter a "cunt" on national television. She announced to the world on live radio that her daughter was "PMSing." Rather than speaking out against the pedophile who used her kids and her, she goes after, with the most vicious slander, the woman who tried to protect them from him. You might believe those are the actions of a good mother, but I definitely do not."
The actual quote became a point of semantics on the forum where it was argued that April did not call her daughter such a name. What was actually said by April was, "And then when they leave...you can act as much of a cunt as you want, for the rest of the night...ok."
The comment itself drew a collective gasp from many while watching the film. However, it demonstrated precisely what life for the Gaede twins, as well as their 3 year old sister, is really like.
In response, Gaede claimed:
"As for saying the word "cunt". My daughters were acting like spoiled brats that day to the max. They were mad because they wanted to hang out with their friends and couldnt because of the filming, which they had agreed to do and so they decided to act like brats. I said what I said because at that age, telling them they were acting like brats doesnt mean much. So what, I dont see that it is that big a deal. I dont use that word often but I was pushed to the breaking point. In retrospect, I should not have said it, but what the hell, life goes on."
I guess in the world of skinheads, racists, and hate-mongers, using such language when disciplining children is just normal. I guess that age 14 is considered "grown" to a woman living such an existence.
Will Williams, who has been a long time detractor of Gaede and has published volumes about her sexual escapades, chimed in to further shred any myths about the fine parent that Gaede is. Williams made the following statement…
"Lane was a responsible, moral man of the top rank.
"I understand and accept Mr. Lane's off the cuff comment in that hit piece. He probably didn't realize that his comments on a speakerphone were going to be memorialized in a BBC docudrama. The poor fellow had been in Super Max lockdown for twenty years. He had had pictures of the twins all over the wall of his cell for at least five years, maybe six, going back to their pre-teen years, and had them reading poertry and singing to him over the phone most of that time. Lane was as manipiulated as the twins have been."
It is important to note that Gaede had chosen Lane as her children's "Godfather" and that she encouraged the girls to write and to stay in close contact with the prisoner.
The comment made by Williams did not go unanswered by April. She retaliated with:
"Will, you act as if you visited David's cell yourself. I dont even have any idea about what was on his walls. Or, that you were privy to most of the phone calls from him, when in truth you were present on ONE occasion....The truth is that they confiscated David's things often and he would ask for new pics of the girls, I sent pics of Dresden too and of the kids Bday parties with their cousins, our cattle branding etc. Just pics to show him that what he did was not in vain and to give him a glimpse into a healthy family life that he could not have. David was my friend, in all the years that I knew him via phone and email he never once said anything inappropriate to the girls. I believe that the comment that he made on the documentary was not made in a perverted way like Elisha and the documentary would have you believe. He was just acknowledging that pretty white women are attractive to WN men. The girls are 15, they are not babies, they are young women.
To claim that I manipulated David is so mean. I was one of the people who didnt forget him. How much did you write to him?"
Well, that was probably not the smartest thing that April has ever asked. Will Williams has been a long time activist within the movement and is well respected within the rank and file. His response?
"Gaede says it's mean of me to say she manipulated David Lane, using her daughters. The truth can be mean. I'm not saying having the girls in his life didn't bring David some measure of needed attachment to females on the outside. Fantasies were all the man had where he was.
"She asked me how many times I wrote to David Lane like that's relevant. I was corresponding with Lane back in 1988 and for years after, long before she first wrote to him and started sending him pictures of her girls in 2001. I edited his 88 Precepts and was the first to publish them, 13 years before the Shewolf of the NA wiled her way into his lonely life, and was reasonably close to Katja Lane and especially with Ron McVan, David's right arm, all through the 1990's as they developed Wotanism together. I published a letter by David Lane in 1989 in which he called Xianity an "escape hatch," and admitted that both he and Bob Mathews took a dim view of Xianity and had both read Klassen's White Man's Bible. So much for claims that they were Xians."
While all of this may seem to be just more of the drama that takes place in cyberspace, it is important to view this squabble in context. Given the severity of the charges that have been leveled and acquiesced to in regard to Strom, the children with whom he had contact should be of the utmost concern.
April Gaede will probably never win "Mother of the Year." However, there is even more to be considered when looking into her parenting practices. Rarely am I ever in agreement with a racist, but Will Williams raised a legitimate concern when he offered his opinion on the manipulation of the children. Also, are April's wishes for stardom and success such that she not only manipulated but exploited these two beautiful girls? This question has been raised more than once by many people.
Kevin Alfred Strom was a huge promoter of the twins and April. The question remains, why did April continue sending Strom pictures of her girls? Apparently, many in the movement knew of Kevin's penchant for young girls. It would be patently ingenuous of April Gaede to claim that she had no clue.
Any sane person would question April's motivation behind her relationship with David Lane. Assigning Lane "Godfather" status begs the question of her own sanity, not to mention that she has also dubbed Matt Hale as their "Spiritual Leader." One can only conclude that April understood the esteem that was bestowed upon Lane and hoped that by using his name the Prussian Blue duo would be revered and legitimized among those in the movement.
Booking her children into white power events, insisting that they perform for drunken and often obscene skinheads and the like cannot be justified as anything other than manipulation and exploitation. And if Kevin Alfred Strom's actions with their pictures did not curdle her stomach the very thought of a murderous felon having sexual fantasies about them should have.
Her claims of providing Lane with a "glimpse into a healthy family life," would almost be laughable if the circumstances were not so wretchedly abominable.
Elisha Strom isn't without culpability in all of this, however. In 2003, Elisha was featured as one the Southern Poverty Law Center's "40 To Watch." Countering what many called Kevin Alfred Strom's "effeminate ways," Elisha presented herself as more of a feminist often drawing fire from the rank and file racists for her strong views on women.
Entering into the fray that generally characterizes the racist right is not an easy thing for women. In most instances, women are viewed as weak and too emotional to handle things that should be left to the men - things like voting or participating in the political arena. Elisha didn't fit the mold.
As much as Kevin's website was strange, so was Elisha's which often featured "hot men of movement." As early as 2002, a confidential source eluded to the belief that Kevin's feminism was rivaled by Elisha's masculinity and claimed that both were involved in "weird sexual exploits."
Kevin's affinity for young girls was a well known fact among the racists yet his writings and broadcasts were highly touted by them. According to his first wife, Kirsten Kaiser, Strom was infatuated with "nymphs" and had them all over their home.
In a very revealing interview with Kirsten, the Southern Poverty Law Center reported that she had been interviewed and questioned by the FBI in November of 2006, and asked for names of underaged girls who might have lived on the National Alliance compound during the same time as Kevin.
Kirsten also reported a telephone conversation with Elisha:
"She said that for the first two years of her marriage she tried to figure out what was wrong with her [because Strom showed so little interest], and for the second two years she tried to figure out what was wrong with him," Kaiser said. "The fact is, he wasn't interested in me, either, once we got married."
Now, considering all of these things, one must also consider that Kevin Alfred Strom and Elisha shared the same living space and the same bed. It seems almost inconceivable to me that any woman could live for so many years with a man who lusted after children and not realize that something was very wrong with that picture.
It seems to me that Elisha knew about her husband and, perhaps, ignored or denied or even abetted him in his quest for pictures of very young girls. She relates a story that while attending a function of David Duke, Kevin wanted to take pictures of Prussian Blue in their bikini's at the pool. According to Elisha, she intervened and asked another person to get those shots.
This whole affair is a sordid mess and, I suspect, involves many others. There are those who knew and kept quiet. There are those who tried to cover or sweep it under the rug. And, there are those who obliged Mr. Strom by sending photo's, by interfering with authorities, or by simply condoning his actions.
April Gaede as well as Elisha Strom must both share in this despicable happening. No woman would force her daughters into an arena so rife with degenerates nor allow them to associate with men with such disreputable pasts. Likewise, no woman would not know that there was something rotten going on with her husband, and once known, would have allowed it to continue.
Elisha will say that she tried to get him to seek help. She will say that she filmed him and recorded him for "proof." The "proof" was always there and the bottom line is, she didn't report him. He was brought to the attention of law enforcement by the parents of a young child that he was stalking.
In fairness, it is possible that Kevin was abusive and that Elisha feared him…but when it comes to children, no matter how much she feared, she should have done what was necessary long ago to protect them.
April Gaede is another story. Her manipulation and exploitation of the twins is unconscionable and may have adverse affects on both for years to come. While cat fights are not generally fruitful, I can only hope that, in this case, that April will see what she has done and ask forgiveness from her children.
Kevin Alfred Strom was scheduled for trial in January on the porn charges. If Elisha Strom is correct and he pleads guilty, I can only speculate that others will be named as part of that plea bargain. He will not go gentle into the night - bet on it.

THE RON PAUL REVULSION
By Nicole Nichols
Fanatics of any kind piss me off. Their zealous aggressiveness, patently plastic approach, and dogmatically blinding perceptions are enough to make me just want to hurl. Can we all agree that extremism, in any form is a turn-off and can be detrimental both to the extremist and the victims of that extremism? Good…I thought so.
The last few months of trying to follow these presidential hopefuls has found me, more often than not, in the Ron Paul melee. Why? Because of the fanatical and sometimes boisterous antics of his supporters and his own refusal to allay the concerns that have arisen regarding the racists, loons, and genuine extremists who are bolstering his internet presence. For an instant, it looked as if those bullies and loud-mouths were going to steamroll right over those who dared to speak disparagingly about their messiah. That would have been interesting considering that Paul is somewhat of a Constitutionalist and wants to protect our rights to free speech. Uh…huh.
Before I begin to fillet Ron Paul and some of his supporters, let me issue a disclaimer. Not everyone supporting Ron Paul is a racist, nut-job, or fanatic. There…that's done.
Consider, if you will, the ideology behind racist groups. They are against big government. They value their privacy. Many ascribe to the idea of state's rights above all else. Many believe that taxation is illegal. Some desire segregation while others favor deportation or even genocide. They despise minorities and especially folks of the Jewish persuasion. Generally speaking, they deplore multiculturalism and non-white immigration into this country. So…what is it about Ron Paul that draws them into his backyard? In all seriousness…you have to look at the man and what he stands for to see the whole picture.
In a wonderfully researched article Andrew Walden, of American Thinker, has chronicled the racist and extremist support that has attached itself to the Ron Paul campaign. Walden accurately points out that most political candidates would do anything and everything possible to distance themselves from many of the people who are supporting Dr. Paul. However, it seems that distancing is not going to happen.
Let's look at some of those extremists a little more closely.
Willis Carto, now in his 70's, hails from the far right wing of American politics. He was heavily influenced by philosopher Francis Parker Yockey…who sympathized with Nazi War Criminals while prosecuting them at the Nuremburg Trials. He also argued for a race-based path for the preservation of western culture.
Carto founded the Liberty Lobby which has been sued out of existence. He now runs a newspaper entitled "American Free Press" which focuses on conspiracy theories, economics and Israel.
He acquired what was left of the Youth For Wallace group and turned it into an openly racist organization called the "National Alliance Youth," which later became the National Alliance under the control of Dr. William Luther Pierce, the author of the "Turner Diaries."
Carto, himself is a Holocaust denier, and promotes others who engage in the same kind of "revisionist" thinking. He joined in the signing of "The New Orleans Protocol" at the 2004 conclave put together by David Duke upon his release from prison. The protocol seeks to make the Duke brand of racism more mainstream.
Carto also publishes many of Ron Paul's writings.
IN CARTO'S OWN WORDS…
"Who is using who [sic]? Who is calling the shots? History supplies the answer to this. History tells us plainly who our Enemy is. Our Enemy today is the same Enemy of 50 years ago and before -- and that was before Communism. The Communists are 'using' the Jews we are told. . . . [W]ho was 'using the Jews 50 years ago --100 or 1,000 years ago. History supplies the answer. The Jews came first and remain Public Enemy No. 1.
"Hitler's defeat was the defeat of Europe. And of America. . . . The blame . . . must be laid at the door of the international Jews."
"If Satan himself... had tried to create a... force for the destruction of the nations, he could have done no better than to invent the Jews."
David Duke is the former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. Duke won election to the Louisiana State Legislature and ran for president twice as both a Democrat and a Republican. (Interesting how if they don't get in the door of one party, they just switch.)
"According to Wikipedia, "It is alleged that using the pseudonym Dorothy Vanderbilt, Duke published a self-help book for women, titled Finders-Keepers, in 1976. The publication gives advice to women regarding vaginal exercises, fellatio, analingus, and anal sex. The manual is no longer in print and hard to find; however, the Times-Picayune, a New Orleans newspaper, managed to find a copy and trace the trail of its proceeds to the original author via the publisher. Duke compiled information from various women's self-help magazines, and published the book to raise money for his activities, though the book turned out to be a flop."
"Duke worked in the National Alliance Youth.
Duke served 15 months in prison for failing to file his taxes and mail fraud. He is an avid white supremacist who seeks segregation of the races. He is a rabid anti-Semite and blames the U.S. support for Israel for the attacks of September 11th.
David Duke, who spends most of his time out of the counrty ardently supports Ron Paul in his quest for the presidency. Also, according to Wikipedia and major news outlets: "On November 24, 2005, Duke visited Damascus, Syria, addressing a rally which was broadcast on Syrian television, and later giving an interview. During the rally, he referred to Israel as a "war-mongering country", adding that "Washington, New York and London and many other capitals of the world" are "occupied by the Zionists."
After speaking to the Syrian people, Duke was interviewed, where he said that Israel "makes the Nazi state look very, very moderate." Syrian parliament member Muhammad Habash replied that Duke's visit gave Syrians a "new and very positive view of the average American."
Now…aren't we all thankful that Duke has portrayed us in such a manner to the rest of the world?
IN DUKE'S OWN WORDS…
"What we really want to do is to be left alone. We don't want Negroes around. We don't need Negroes around. We're not asking you know, we don't want to have them, you know, for our culture. We simply want our own country and our own society. That's in no way exploitive at all. We want our own society, our own nation...." ( Duke interview with doctoral student Evelyn Rich, who
traveled around the country with Duke while conducting
research for her dissertation on the KKK. March 1985)
"They're trying to exterminate our race. I think, probably in a moral sense, the Jewish people have been a blight. I mean as a whole, not every Jew. And they probably deserve to go into the ashbin of history. But saying that and actually shooting or killing people in masses, are two different things. I'm not advocating extermination. I think the best thing is to resettle them in someplace where they can't exploit others. And I don't think they can live among themselves, I really don't." ( Evelyn Rich interview, February 1986)
Don Black runs the infamous website known as "Stormfront." Stormfront is the first and largest hate site on the web. Black was also a Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. He is close friends with David Duke in spite of the fact that Duke's first wife is now Mrs. Don Black.
In 1981, Black was convicted of attempting an armed overthrow of the Dominican government in what was dubbed "Operation Red Dog," or "Bayou of Pigs." He was joined by nine other would-be mercenaries who were largely members of the Klan.
Don Black not only runs Stormfront, but he hosts, according to the Anti-Defamation League, a site called Bamboo Delight which is replete with anti-Semitic programs and pamphlets. At first glance in appears to be a cheesey website promoting Asian health aids…but look again. It is chocked full of statements such as:
"The next time you think about going to a Jewish doctor,
know the basic teaching for a Jewish physician and think twice about it.
"It is forbidden [for a Jewish doctor] to heal a non-Jew even for payment..."
an"It is forbidden to save non-Jews if they are at the point of death;
if, for example, one of them is seen falling into the sea, he should not be rescued."
"Now do you know why diseases are never cured but only treated and treated and treated for money and more money and more money ???
"All Jewish physicians are devils. Don't submit yourself to their swindles.".
"Anyone who likes good food and good health should try my cooking method. But those readers who are Negroes
should immediately start using my cooking method. Because Negroes have more diseases and have shorter lives
than other people, they can immediately start regaining their Natural Rights to good health and long life that the
Junk foods of the Jewish Medical Conspiracy have robbed from them."
And for a price, you can be the proud owner of a CD containing all of Frazier Glenn Miller's speeches, or "Everything You Always Wanted To Know About the Jews but Were Afraid To Ask." Or, you can order an 80 page Adobe book entitled "Jewish-Communist Brainwashing Techniques," which will hip you to the Jewish brainwashing of Bill Clinton and Dr. Benjamin Spock.
Jamie Kelso is a Senior Moderator on the Stormfront forum and David Duke's right hand man. He has been hugely successful in helping Don Black build the now Stormfront forum into the 119,000 plus members that it is today. He did this by encouraging some of the more prolific writers in the movement such as Sam Dickson, from the Council of Conservative Citizens, and Willis Carto to start posting on the forum. According to Wikipedia…
"He was the chairman of the May 2004 and May 2005 New Orleans conferences attended by a number of white nationalists, including Nick Griffin, chair of the British National Party; Jean-Michel Girard, Directeur de cabinet des affaires etrangeres of the Front National of France; and Lady Michele Renouf from the UK. Kelso lived at David Duke's headquarters in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana during this time. He also organized an April 2004 international revisionist conference in Sacramento attended by attorney Edgar J. Steele, author of Defensive Racism; Paul Fromm, chair of the Canadian Association for Free Expression; and April Gaede and her daughters Lamb and Lynx, twin members of the band Prussian Blue.
IN JAMIE KELSO'S OWN WORDS…
"We can have peace and security only as long as we band together to preserve that most priceless possession, our inheritance of European blood."
"You always want to paint your opponents in the worst possible light," Kelso said of antiracist activists and other Stormfront detractors. "That becomes hard to do when an organization reaches large numbers. It's not plausible to say hundreds of thousands of people are nuts. We're striving to be seen as our own kind of mainstream, and that we're not kooky."
EDGAR J. STEELE
Edgar J. Steele is an anti-Semitic and racist attorney out of Sandpoint, Idaho. He is probably most well known for his defense of Richard Butler, head of Aryan Nations, in a 2000, suit that was brought about when Aryan Nation's guards attack a woman and her son. Steele lost the case and Richard Butler lost his compound.
Currently, Steele runs a website called "Conspiracy Pen Pal," where he posts his anti-Semitic and racist rants as well as his support for Ron Paul.
According to the Anti-Defamation League…
"Steele also regularly attacks blacks in his books, columns and speeches. He alleges the existence of a "Black-on-White race war" in the U.S., and claims that blacks have "inherited" a distinctly "African" culture of "rape…murder…violence…[and] single-parent families." He has also called for organized opposition to African Americans in the entertainment industry, asking his readers to join him in boycotting "products advertised with black actors and models," and "TV shows and movies with black actors."
"Steele publishes a weekly commentary on his Web site, and his writings are also distributed widely through E-mail lists. Steele's open association with white supremacists has become well-known, and he is a sought-after speaker at conferences of right-wing extremists, including those conducted by the National Alliance, Volksfront, and the Institute for Historical Review."
IN EDGAR STEELE'S OWN WORDS…
"Truly the Masters of Disaster on a national scale, Jews have been ejected from society after society, down through the ages -- always for the same reasons and always claiming to be the victims of unjustified persecution. Today, however, they are engineering a disaster global in its reach -- their "final solution," if you will: the New World Order. And America is their intended vehicle. America's founders were well aware of the dangers presented by the Jewish race." (August 25, 2003)
"Join me, won't you? Boycott products advertised with black actors and models. Make a statement: If you see black, don't go back. Boycott TV shows and movies with black actors. Send the message that we are fed up: If we see "black, we don't go back. Cancel your subscriptions to newspapers and magazines that push black articles, columnists and advertisements into your face. There are plenty available that don't. Not coincidentally, those that don't promote blacks are the same ones that actually tell the truth about other things, too. Tell them when you cancel: If we see black, we don't go back."
"Wherever blacks are congregated in America, one observes the manifestation of their inherited behavioral response patterns, directly traceable to the behavior to be observed in African blacks. Realizing that America's black problems are rooted in African culture goes a long way toward explaining the black-on-white race war being waged in the streets of America, the rapes, the murders, the violence, the short-term outlook, the single-parent families and so on."
"So, what color are Jews? Jews are the color of avarice and greed. Jews are the color of deception, manipulation and the lust for power. Jews are the color of dishonesty, selfishness and heartlessness. "
"Jews are right about anti-Semitism being a disease, you know, just as fourteenth-century Europeans were right about the nature of bubonic plague. However, just as with bubonic plague, American Jews seem not to have identified the Jewish Plague's real carriers. But you and I know who they are. Anti-Semitism is a disease. You catch it from Jews."
"Jews, themselves, were responsible for Adolf Hitler. There is a pattern to Jewish tyranny in country after country, you know….Hitler was the response to the pre-World-War-II Jewish takeover and pillaging of Germany, similar to how Jewish robber barons recently gutted Russia."
"Personally, give me real skinheads any day of the week for loyalty, honesty and passion, versus the girly-man traitors now running America! I learned that many years ago when I had the honor of helping to defend your right to free speech by representing Richard Butler and the Aryan Nations in a trumped-up lawsuit designed to silence them."
Will Williams is a long time racist and activist in various organizations within the white supremacist realm. Ben Klassen, founder of the Church of the Creator and author of the "White Man's Bible," and other publications, wrote about Williams and his stay at Klassen's one-time compound. According to Klassen, Willliams assaulted his girlfriend and eventually had to leave. Williams also provided security for the late William Luther Pierce, founder of the neo-Nazi National Alliance.
Williams, at one point, was a great recruiter of young people into the National Alliance as he would distribute comic books entitled "The Saga of White Will." The publication depicted a violent attack on a Jewish kid by the hero.
With more than 30 years of racist rallies, events, and recruiting under his belt, Will Williams has decided that Ron Paul is the candidate that will best represent whites and non-Jews. With a fervor, he has been promoting Paul across hate groups on the internet and he formed a "Meet-up" group for Tennessee. Refusing to compromise his hate speech, especially against the Jewish population, Williams became a prolific poster on the Ron Paul Forums where he berated what he calls "Jewish influence" and posted the writings of Dr. William Luther Pierce and others. When challenged by one supporter, Williams had this to say:
"It's clear that proofs of anything mean nothing to you -- right again. You must live a miserable existence trying to control everybody and what they can and can't discuss. You'd make a compliant wage slave pushing mind slop at the Disney Corp, or maybe at the civil rights division of the DOJ enforcing hate speech statutes, locking away thought criminals like myself. I'm surprised you are attracted to Dr. Paul with your severely restricted view of what's allowable under the First Amendment. It's unpopular speech, dissident speech -- Politically Incorrect speech, if you will -- for which our founding fathers provided the highest protection. Those protections have been seriously eroded and I will talk about this and about who abrogated these sacred personal liberties until I'm gagged by thought police like you and whomever you whine to, or killed."
Adam Holland has written extensively about Williams and some of the other racists behind the Paul campaign.
IN WILL WILLIAMS OWN WORDS...
"I'm currently reading _Stalin and his Hangmen - the Tyrant and Those who Killed for Him_, by Donald Rayfield. Our Ally in WWII, "Uncle Joe" Stalin, and his buddies like Beria and Kagonovich and all those other nice Jewish boys, made Mr. Hitler look like a girl scout when it came to mass killing. One has to wonder why there are no movies about this, or TV shows, or many books for that matter, or holocaust museums, when there are literally thousands devoted to the evil Mr. Hitler and how he made lampshades and soap out of all those blameless, pious Jews who just wanted to bring to Germany and the rest of Europe what their kinsmen brought to Russia. I think it goes to what Mr. Napolean once said: "The victors write the histories." The Jewish people certainly did win WWII, didn't they Mr. Panken? They are sitting atop the world...or it that a powder keg?
"After enough complaints from Holycause survivors I received a new plate from DMV in the mail one day, unsolicited, along with a letter instructing me to return my prized ZYKLON-B. I ignored the niggers and still have it. I had a RAHOWA! vanity plate before that, during late 80's, early 90's, but it didn't raise many eyebrows back then because few knew what it meant."
Perhaps the most disturbing issue that surrounds the posts of Will Williams on the Ron Paul forums is the number of people who seem to agree with his anti-Semitism or are willing to tolerate it.
Ron Doggett is a former Klansman and current David Duke lackey. Out of Richmond, Virginia, Doggett used to host a public access show entitled "Race and Reality."
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center,
"In February of 2001, Doggett testified to the Virginia Senate Rules Committee in favor of maintaining the state's unconstitutional law against interracial marriage. He pulled off an even more remarkable coup a month later, when he convinced then-Gov. Jim Gilmore, who was also then heading up the Republican National Committee, to declare May "European American Heritage and History Month" — an astounding feat given Doggett's local notoriety. Two months later, a red-faced Gilmore rescinded his proclamation."
IN RON DOGGETT'S OWN WORDS...
On the vandalizing of the Martin Luther King Bridge: "I not a fan of graffiti but that hit the mark.
Of course it could be argued that putting the name M.L.King on it was worse than any spray paint"
On viewing a heavily tattooed female: "I guess it will take all kinds to win this battle. Better to see that than race-mixing whore seeks ape, still funny though."
John Ubele is the Operations Director for the Nationalist Coalition. The Nationalist Coalition is an offshoot of the National Alliance and was formed after a shake-up following William Pierce's death and the later incarceration of Kevin Alfred Strom on child pornography charges.
The stated purpose of the Nationalist Coalition is:
"Through a loss of self-determination due to media control by a few individuals at the top, the organization purports that white values are being lost. The media has "... enormous power to lead the American people and their government in whatever direction they choose". With this basic position, the organization is attempting to create a network of anti non-white immigrant, volunteers to fuel their own media intervention and thus expound their own white separatist beliefs."
Ubele is also running for office in Florida while heading up the Florida Meet-up group for Ron Paul. He has garnered some local press over the last few months because of some very anti-Semitic flyers that he has been distributing which claim that our American soldiers are dying for Israel.
John Ubele is maintaining quite a web-presence as it appears that he is trying to cover all bases. Ubele also heads the Sons of Liberty group, which claims:
"It is our hope to positively affect the political, social, and economic well being of that constituency. Through political activism, organized to educate the citizens of Florida, we intend to cause the change of our political and social institutions to the extent that they are actively respecting and promoting the interests of European Americans’ heritage, on at least a basis equal to that of any other heritage, race, or ethnicity represented in the State of Florida."
John appears to be a well-respected member of the Ron Paul group and is very active in that campaign.
Virginia Abernethy is a retired professor of psychiatry at Vanderbilt University. She has been deemed a "white supremacist," but prefers the term "ethnic separatist." Splitting hairs is not uncommon among racists and bigots. Vehemently opposed to immigration, Abernethy claims that "ethnic groups are more comfortable with their own kind."
Abernethey is closely tied to the Council of Conservative Citizens and is a rabid anti-immigration proponent.
In 2004, Abernethy wrote a letter to the Washington Times which had described her as a "self-described 'racial separtist'". In that letter she stated, note that the nation has abandoned the motto, "e pluribus unum." She wrote, "The goals of the multicultural game are ethnic separatism, ethnic privilege and ethnic power." European-Americans are "late on the playing field" and need to catch up because if they don't play the game "my family and kin will lose out"
She also served on the editorial board of The Citizen Informer, the newsletter of the Council of Conservative Citizens, a Neo-confederate organization. Abernethy regularly addresses meetings of the CofCC. She is on the editorial advisory board of The Occidental Quarterly, a pro-European-American scholarly journal of "nationalist thought and opinion." Abernethy is on the Board of Directors of the Carrying Capacity Network, an immigration-reduction organization, and also on the Board of Population-Environment BALANCE, which advocates an immigration moratorium in order to balance population size with resources and the environment's capacity to cope with pollution.
She likes hobnobbing with the anti-Semitic author and professor, Kevin MacDonald and, little wonder, has contributed financially to the Ron Paul campaign.
Meet Larry Pratt, the executive director of Gun Owners of America. Now, that, in and of itself, may not be too alarming to most Americans. However, his support of Ron Paul has caused some concerns, not because of his firearm views, but because of his other activities.
Larry Pratt was the former co-chairman of the Pat Buchannan presidential campaign during which time it was alleged that Pratt had attended white supremacist and militia meetings. Pratt denied the charges but resigned to avoid bringing any controversy down on the Buchanan campaign.
In spite of Pratt's denials, it later came to light that in 1992, he had shared the stage with Louis Beam, a virulent white supremacist, and Richard Butler, the infamous leader of Aryan Nations. Pratt addressed a three-day gathering of neo-Nazi's, white supremacists, and Christian Identity adherents who had gathered in Estes Park, Colorado following the Ruby Ridge incident.
Larry Pratt and his organization wields a lot of lobbying power. His personal friendshipt with John Ashcroft and his membership in the secretive Council for National Policy demonstrates how deeply anti-Semitic and racist ideology have been able to penetrate the halls of U.S. government.
In a close look at Larry Platt, an article entitled "God & Guns"sums up why we should be concerned thusly:
"What makes Larry’s story interesting is his link between the idea of God and guns. Pratt is an active participant in the Religious Right movement and carries great influence as a speaker and expert on both Bible and guns. The linking of God and guns is an interesting story because most believers would consider Christians somewhat pacifists on the arms issue.
"What makes Larry scary to some folks is the way in which he is able to casually walk amidst some of the most violent right wing elements of society and fit in among them as a featured speaker. Larry is not only a gun lobbyist, he works for English First and Border Patrol which are groups who demand English be the official language of the nation and that something be done about the influx of Mexican immigrants. The official complaint against Larry’s liaisons was his addressing a meeting where there were Christian Identity and Aryan Nation people working to promote armed militia."1" Larry has written a manual promoting the militia movement and is considered an expert on militia mobilizations. Christian Identity and Aryan Nations groups are rabid White Supremacy fanatics who have a sideline of hating Jews.
"Pastor Pete Peters of Colorado once invited Pratt to speak at a meeting."2" Peters is an anti-semitic preacher who is a White Supremist and advocates the killing of homosexuals as a splendid Biblical mandate for modern America.
"Larry Pratt’s web page is www.gunowners.org and features many interesting points of information. One part of the page warns about the U.S. government declaring martial law from the Y2K crisis. Right wing groups suspect a secret U.N. plot to take away Americans’ weapons. Listed in Pratt’s link are some patriot/militia groups with scary positions. The sight sells several tapes on the Waco Branch Davidian event. Right wing types like Timothy McVeigh are still infuriated over government intervention in taking away the weapons of Davidian cult members. Another tape sold claims the Oklahoma City Federal Building actually exploded from an insider conspiracy. Many right wing groups claim the government actually planted the bomb in Oklahoma City. This is a common tale among the militia people who still smart from government accusations about their propaganda. Another tape has Pratt defending Militia organizations. A book is featured about Michael New who refused to serve under the U.N. banner and faced a court martial for his actions. He is a cult hero among these mindsets. Dr. Rushdoony’s books are promoted. Rushdoony is a theocracy advocate who believes the Constitution should be abandoned for what he considers Biblical Law. Rushdoony advocates the modern use of the Old Testament Law for modern governments as the only official law. Under op ed pieces, Larry blames the Colombine school massacre on the fact that God was taken out of the schools. Pratt likes to blend the idea of gun ownership with his faith in God’s law.
"Larry, who is an active Presbyterian, responds on his web sight to charges of racism. He refutes the Christian Identity theology and takes a stand against racism. He says that his Biblical faith would not allow him to be a racist.
"Pratt definitely doesn’t pay attention to whom he allows his name to be associated with. He was shown on the A&E TV network speaking at a White Supremists’ rally. He openly endorses the most right wing of politicians like Ron Paul and Steve Stockman of Texas. Pratt also has close ties with would be Congressman Randall Terry. Terry borders on the terrorists fringe with some of the things he advocates in his positions.
"Pratt spoke at the 1996 National Affairs Briefing in Memphis and his taped message was advertised through the Southern Baptist Convention Christian Life Commission magazine. Pratt seems to move quite freely between the extreme Right and the more respectable Right.
"It has been suggested that Pratt needs to be given credit for helping to organize the Religious Right in the early eighties."4" He has traveled overseas advocating positions with foreign governments that Religious Right advocates have sought to address in distant continents."5" If Larry is so middle America one wonders at some of the statements and associations he is identified with. He once said we need a militia because "Anti-Christian governments such as we have in the United States cannot be counted on to keep the peace"6". It is no secret that Pratt holds great disdain for the idea of separation of church and state.
"Pratt’s Biblical rantings ask for people to pray for Gun Owners of America because he needs God’s wisdom to continue his Godly call to keep the guns flowing."
And while we are looking at the Religious Right as it relates to Ron Paul, let's look at another powerful individual, supporter, and long time friend of the candidate.
Gary Kilgore North is a writer and publisher from the Christian Reconstruction movement. Best known for his predictions Y2k of gloom and doom which never materialized. He also holds a doctorate in economic history. Like Ron Paul, North propses abolishing the fractional reserve banking system and a return to the gold standard while advocating for the Austrian School of Economics.
It is important to note that Gary North has been very close to Ron Paul for decades not to mention that he served on Paul's staff in the 1970's. While North's economic views often echo those of many Libertarians, it is his religious views that are of the utmost concern. As previously mentioned, North is a Christian Reconstructionist and is the son-in-law of R.J. Rushdoony who is considered the father of the reconstructionists. It is no secret that Paul is against the separation of church and state and holds some very strong views in that area and Gary North has called him the "Mahatma of Self Government."
In article just written by Aura Bogado, she claims that…
"Paul opposes the separation of Church and State. Yes, you read correctly, he opposes it. He says there is a war on religion, and that "Through perverse court decisions and years of cultural indoctrination, the elitist, secular Left has managed to convince many in our nation that religion must be driven from public view." We should remember that when writing about the First Amendment of the Constitution (which clearly states that "government will make no law respecting an establishment of religion"), Thomas Jefferson coined the term "separation of Church and State". If Paul's theocratic concepts were instituted, we would have Old Testament displays at the nation's courthouses, and Christian prayers would be part of each child's school day.
"His religious conservatism seems to inform his views on topics as elementary as evolution when it comes to education. When asked if he would encourage presenting so-called facts to contradict the theory of evolution in schools, he answered yes. This "alternative view" on the theory of evolution means teaching the concept of intelligent design- a pseudoscience which real scientists dismiss as another attempt to once again introduce creationism into public classrooms. No thank you. Intelligent design may have its place in church, on the street or at home, but in terms of science, it doesn't propose any hypotheses which can be tested through experiment; it's simply not science."
So, what about this "Christian Conservatism?" I'll let Gary North explain his views in the following quotes:
"It is only in a period of civil impotence that Christians are under the rule to "resist not evil" (Matt. 5:39). When Christians are given power in civil affairs, the situation is different, and another rule is imposed: "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you" (James 4:7). The same holds true for the devil's disciples. Martin Luther once saw the devil, or something he thought was the devil, and hurled an inkwell at him. He had other suggestions, even more earthly, as to how we should handle the devil. That should be the attitude of all Christians who possess authority. We pay the bribe until the day that God's adversaries lose power, but not one day longer." (Gary North, "In Defense of Biblical Bribery," in R.J. Rushdoony, The Institutes of Biblical Law (Nutley, NJ: Craig Press, 1973), p. 846.)
"Furthermore, there is that other great, intolerable evil of the New England Puritans: the Puritans took land away from the "native Americans." You know, the Indians. (Liberals have adopted the phrase "native Americans" in recent years. They never, ever say "American natives," since this is only one step away from "American savages," which is precisely what most of those demon-worshipping, Negro slave-holding, frequently land-polluting people were.... This was one of the great sins in American life, they say: "the stealing of Indian lands".... That a million savages had a legitimate legal claim on the whole of North America north of Mexico is the unstated assumption of such critics. They never ask the question: From whom did the Indians of early colonial America get the land? They also never ask the even more pertinent question: Was the advent of the European in North America a righteous historical judgment of God against the Indians? On the contrary, our three authors [Noll, Hatch, Marsden] ridicule the Puritans for having suggested that the Indians were the moral and covenantal equivalent of the Canaanites (p. 33). In fact, if ever a continent of covenant-breakers deserved this attribution, the "native Americans" did." (Gary North, Political Polytheism: The Myth of Pluralism (Tyler, TX: Institute for Christian Economics, 1989), pp. 257-258)
"The long-term goal of Christians in politics should be to gain exclusive control over the franchise. Those who refuse to submit publicly to the eternal sanctions of God by submitting to His Church's public marks of the covenant--baptism and holy communion--must be denied citizenship, just as they were in ancient Israel. " (Gary North, Political Polytheism: The Myth of Pluralism (Tyler, TX: Institute for "The question eventually must be raised: Is it a criminal offense to take the name of the Lord in vain? When people curse their parents, it unquestionably is a capital crime (Ex. 21:17). The son or daughter is under the lawful jurisdiction of the family. The integrity of the family must be maintained by the threat of death. Clearly, cursing God (blasphemy) is a comparable crime, and is therefore a capital crime (Lev. 24:16)."Christian Economics, 1989), p. 87.)
(On Modern Israel)
"There is only one Bride; God is not a bigamist. He took no gentile wife under the Old Covenant, and He will not accept a pale imitation of Old Covenant Israel - modern Judaism - as His wife in the future. Gentiles could become part of God's Bride in the Old Covenant only by abandoning their national gods and accepting the God of the Israelites, as Shechem did, by circumcision (Genesis 34). Today, the same rule applies in the New Covenant era: Jews can become part of the Bride only by abandoning their Judaism by being baptized. God is not a bigamist." (Gary North, The Judeo-Christian Tradition: A Guide for the Perplexed (Tyler, TX: Institute for Christian Economics, 1990), pp. 16-17.)
NOTE: Sounds like Gary North and Ann Coulter are soul mates when it comes to Jews.
"Let's get this straight: Christian reconstruction depends on majority rule. More than this; it depends on overwhelming acceptance of the biblical covenant, perhaps as high as the 80% range of adult acceptance. In the initial stages of the Constitutional reform movement, such as today, Christians are under the civil rule of the majority. We must work within a covenantally alien system, and we must do so peacefully." (Gary North, Political Polytheism, p. 586.)
The Bible does not allow the imposition of some sort of top-down bureaucratic tyranny in the name of Christ. The kingdom of God requires a bottom-up society. The bottom-up Christian society rests ultimately on the doctrine of self-government under God, with God's law as the publicly revealed standard of performance. It is the humanists' view of society that promotes top-down bureaucratic power. ..."
"…still another form of masochism is "burden-bearing." The burden-bearer will play the role of public saint in order to atone for private guilt. The more unpleasant the public role, the more desirable its function for purposes of atonement. As a result, the guilty rich will indulge in philanthropy, and the guilty white men will show "love" and "concern" for Negroes and other such persons who are in actuality repulsive and intolerable to them...."
…AND…FROM GARY NORTH'S MENTOR, R.J. RUSHDOONY:
"A contrary development is increasingly in evidence in the Western world, and especially in the United States, i.e., the development by systematic indoctrination of a bad conscience. The political cultivation of guilt is a central means to power, for guilty men are slaves; their conscience is in bondage, and hence they are easily made objects of control. Guilt is thus systematically taught for purposes of control. Several instances can be cited readily. For example, the white man is being systematically indoctrinated into believing that he is guilty of enslaving and abusing the Negro. Granted that some Negroes were mistreated as slaves, the fact still remains that nowhere in all history or in the world today has the Negro been better off. The life expectancy of the Negro increased when he was transported to America. He was not taken from freedom into slavery, but from a vicious slavery to degenerate chiefs to a generally benevolent slavery in the United States. There is not the slightest evidence that any American Negro had ever lived in a "free society" in Africa; even the idea did not exist in Africa. The move from Africa to America was a vast increase of freedom for the Negro, materially and spiritually as well as personally. The Negroes were sold from a harsh slavery into a milder one. Slavery was basic to the African way of life, to the point that slaves were the actual money of the African economy. Elsewhere, gold and silver served as money; in Africa, it was slaves....
"The private ownership of slave labor in the American South has been the subject of extensive distortion. The Negroes were slaves to their tribal heads in Africa, or prisoner-slaves of other tribes. The monetary unit in black Africa was man, the slave. The Negro moved from an especially harsh slavery, which included cannibalism, to a milder form. Much is said about the horrors of the slave ships, many of which were very bad, but it is important to remember that slaves were valuable cargo and hence property normally handled with consideration. A Canadian legislative commission member in 1847 reported that the Irish immigrants were being transported on ships loaded with twice as many passengers as the ship should hold, huddled down between decks, with too little food and water, and in conditions "as bad as the slave trade." The condition of the Irish immigrants on arrival was far worse than that of slaves: they had no master to feed and clothe them or to provide shelter. The Irish moved from semi-slavery in Ireland to freedom in America only a few years before the Negro gained emancipation. After a century and a quarter, or less, the Irish are a leading power in the United States, and the Negroes remain on the lowest strata. The basic difference between the Irish and the Negro has not been color: it has been character. The Negroes demand more aid, i.e., more slavery and slave-care, and dwell on their sufferings. The Irish have instead looked to the present and future and helped shape America. It is a significant difference that cannot be explained altogether by color or environment. The Chinese also came to the United States under very difficult circumstances and similarly overcame them." (R.J. Rushdoony, Politics of Guilt and Pity (Fairfax, VA: Thoburn Press,  1978), pp 3-4, 19, 25.)
Again, I want to reiterate that not ALL supporters of Ron Paul fit into the mindsets of those profiled in this article. As a matter of fact, the biggest majority of them do not. It is also important to note that those mentioned here are but the tip pf the proverbial iceberg when it comes to who is supporting Dr. Paul.
All of those mentioned above and others unmentioned have the right to support the candidate of their choice. That is not what is being questioned. What is being asked is why there are so many racist and anti-Semitic people throwing in behind Paul. What is his attratction to this particular group? And, even more pressing, why is Ron Paul not speaking out against the racism and anti-Semitism that is being associated with his campaign? Why the silence?
As someone who fervently wants to see the United States of America delivered from the hands of one of the most corrupt and hateful administrations in modern history, I also don't care too much about going from the frying pan into the fire.
America is a multicultural haven that has managed to somehow overcome many adversities. It's not perfect and our struggle toward equality and peace is ongoing. Imagine, if you will, replacing a hateful and bigoted regime with another radical right-winger who has the support of people such as those outlined above. I don't even want to go there. I hope you don't either.
Something is amiss with a candidate who refuses to step to the plate and, not only, refuse to be associated with racists and anti-Semites, but condemn that ideology as well. I am, personally, revolted by Ron Paul's tacit acceptance of support from these groups. I find it an affront to all things American. I find it, at the very least, a dismal statement that we can actually even consider such a person for the presidency.

Ron Paul has a Jewish problem.
By Daniel Sieradski
Last month, the dark horse Republican candidate was barred from the Republican Jewish Coalition’s Candidate’s Forum due to his stance against providing further foreign aid to Israel.
Typical of his view, at an event on September 11 of this year at Johns Hopkins’ School of Advanced International Studies, Paul argued for withdrawing from the Middle East, telling his audience that “Israel is quite capable of taking care of itself” — though interestingly adding that US policy has “hurt Israel tremendously.” Paul also downplayed the threat Iran poses to Israel, saying that even if Iran does develop nuclear arms, that it would not be a serious danger to Israel, which, he added, possesses roughly 300 nuclear weapons of its own.
Paul’s position towards Israel is not innately anti-Jewish, nor is it necessarily even anti-Israel — particularly with such a caveat about America impeding Israel’s interests. Such a statement lends weight, for example, to Zionist extremists who wish to terminate Israel’s Herodian dependence on the US, such as the members of Zionists for Ron Paul, a group run by American expatriates now living as religious settlers in the West Bank.
Nor is it a particularly uncommon position, especially within paleoconservative circles. Pat Buchanan led the charge in March of 2003, writing in The American Conservative that neoconservatives participating in and advising the Bush administration were steering the United States into wars that were not in America’s interests, but rather Israel’s.
Now fed up with the neocon’s wars abroad and the diminishing of civil liberties at home, many conservatives are rallying behind Paul, whom they view as the only Republican candidate who isn’t in the pocket of the Israel lobby. They have helped him become an Internet sensation — the Republican Howard Dean, if you will — who in the last quarter raised over $5 million, outpacing more mainstream candidates like John McCain.
Even with his hardline protectionist stance, Paul has managed to garner the support of Jewish Republicans and Libertarians alike, some of whom have banded together to form an ad hoc coalition called Jews for Ron Paul, which condemned the RJC’s decision to bar the Congressman from their Candidate’s Forum.
Yet, much to his Jewish supporters’ chagrin, Congressman Paul’s willingness to stand up to the neocons has also had the effect of making Paul a popular candidate among those from whom Presidential candidates would typically not desire support: Bona fide antisemites.
Indeed, Ron Paul has become the most popular candidate among right-wing extremists, including white separatists, neo-Nazis, and conspiracy theorists who believe that “the Zionists” were behind 9/11. This group includes Frank Weltner, creator of the antisemitic website JewWatch.com, who in a YouTube video, accuses the “Zionist-controlled media” of attacking Paul’s candidacy. Paul has also received favorable coverage from the Vanguard News Network, a White Nationalist news organ, members of Stormfront, an online neo-Nazi community, as well as the National Alliance, the “mainstream” White Nationalist group featured prominently in Marc Levin’s 2005 film Protocols of Zion.
Of course, Congressman Paul cannot be held accountable for the views of his extremist supporters, unless he publicly acquiesces to those views. Yet, when his extremist supporters begin providing a substantial amount of campaign funds, things get a bit dicier. And that’s Paul’s biggest problem.
According to the Lone Star Times, White Nationalists have become a noticeable source of financial contributions to the Paul campaign. Indeed, even Don Black, the founder of Stormfront, and one of the most notorious neo-Nazis in America, has personally contributed $500 to Paul’s campaign.
Though it’s true that Paul’s campaign has no control over who sends them money in advance, once it becomes apparent that a neo-Nazi leader is sending money, any sensible politician who does not wish to be identified with neo-Nazism should send the money back. Not so for Ron Paul, however, whose campaign is still making up its mind as to whether or not to return Black’s money.
Paul’s spokesman Jesse Benton told the Lone Star Times:
At this time, I cannot say that we will be rejecting Mr. Black’s contribution, but I will bring the matter to the attention of our campaign director again, and expect some sort of decision to be made in coming days.
Frankly, this is a no-brainer. Any other candidate would unequivocally reject that money as soon as its donor’s identity was known. That Paul’s campaign needs time to think about it is shocking.
Also of concern is the fact that Paul’s campaign has ignored my repeated attempts to interview the Congressman for JTA, the Jewish newswire service by which I am employed. I had intended to write a story about the Congressman, and to provide him with the opportunity to distance himself from his extremist supporters, to clarify his position on Israel, and to state his case to the Jewish community. Yet, after three weeks of repeated telephone calls, two chats with his Deputy Communications Director, and several left voicemail messages, I have yet to receive a callback to schedule an interview.
Which leads me to conclude the following about the Congressman from Texas: Ron Paul will take money from Nazis. But he won’t take telephone calls from Jews.

Saturday, November 10, 2007
Words that are spoken often leave permanent scars - and regardless of one's efforts they cannot be taken back. People can change. People can alter their ideologies. What people can't do is keep those beliefs hidden forever. Presidential hopeful, Ron Paul, may not have a snowball's chance in hell of ever hearing "Hail to the Chief" as he graces the red carpet - but he is making his mark among those who believe him to be the "Great White Hope."
Watching the drama unfold as the 2008 Presidential Candidates bloody each other up while seeking their party's endorsement may not be something that tops the list of America's entertainment seekers. However, even the most apathetic among us would have to agree that the list of candidates is an interesting one. An African-American, a woman, a bevy of right wingers and a racist are all jockeying for position and ultimately the right to lead the country.
One of those candidates, Ron Paul, probably won't make it to the forefront but he is creating a ruckus on the internet. A few days ago, Political Editor of the Huffington Post, Thomas B. Edsall, wrote a column entitled, "To His Dismay, Ron Paul Becoming Magnet for White Supremacists." Well…DUH! As I read Edsall's piece I couldn't help but wonder where this man had been all his life. The article states:
"The Paul campaign dismissed the pro-Paul activities among these groups. "We don't know who these people are," said Jesse Benton, Paul's communications director. "Their support has "nothing to do with Ron Paul, and what he stands for....His message of freedom, peace and prosperity - that's why people support him."
"Paul has not made racist or anti-Semitic appeals to the controversial organizations and their members. Instead, their support is based on Paul's libertarian opposition to government generally, including the IRS and the powers granted to the federal government under the Patriot Act - views that are shared by many on the conservative fringe of the spectrum."
Forgive me, but I think I might be sick. Let's just look at who this Dr. Ron Paul is. Ron Paul is no newcomer to the political arena and no newcomer to extremism. That's always been his stock-in-trade. From far right-wing milita and tax-evasion groups to downright racist organizations and individuals Paul has built a bastion of bigotry and laid the foundation for this moment.
Like the racists, he couches his rhetoric in euphemistic speech and coat-tails on to popular movements as a means to further his racist and anti-Semitic agenda.
It has been said that Ron Paul is so far right that he is almost left. It's a very weird and, sometimes confusing, set of precepts and concepts with which Paul has spun his web. He was once a Libertarian and sought the Presidency in 1988. Today he runs as a Republican with some claiming that he is the closest thing to what a Republican conservative should be and others claiming that he is anything but.
Highlighting the confusion, and almost bizarre, incongruences that Paul is noted for, the late Molly Ivins, well known Texas columnist had this to say during the 1996 congressional race in Texas:
"In the amazing 14th, Democrat Lefty Morris (his slogan is ''Lefty is Right!'') faces the Republican/Libertarian Ron Paul, who is himself so far right that he's sometimes left, as happens with your Libertarians. I think my favorite issue here is Paul's 1993 newsletter advising ''Frightened Americans'' on how to get their money out of the country. He advised that Peruvian citizenship could be purchased for a mere 25 grand. That we should all become Peruvians is one of the more innovative suggestions of this festive campaign season. But what will the Peruvians think of it?"
Ron Paul has had a long-standing relationship with the "Patriot Movement" and the "Tax Resistance Movement." The Patriot Network, an anti-tax, anti-government group, held a dinner in Paul's honor in 2004, and heavily endorses him for President. The Patriot Network has overlapping ties with a lot of other militia and Christian Identity groups.
The alliance with these types of groups doesn't stop there for Dr. Paul, however. If you are truly judged by the company that you keep, then it shouldn't be too much of a leap to determine just who Ron Paul really is. Among his friends and supporters you can add Tom DeLay, who contributed at least $6,000 to Paul's campaign. In return, Paul voted to allow DeLay to continue in his position after an indictment was handed down for criminal conspiracy and money laundering.
Perhaps even more disturbing is Paul's close and enduring friendship with Christian Reconstructionist Gary North, who is a leading figure in that movement and who served on Paul's staff at one time.
Gary North has many ties to the radical right and to policy makers in the halls of government. Some might remember North best for his inaccurate prognostication of a cataclysmic event concerning Y2K. According to Wikipedia, "North's economic views are libertarian, and he is a believer in the Austrian School of economics. However, socially, he is an advocate of theonomic rule ("the rule of God's law") and proposes a strict legal system based on Biblical laws, which might execute people for violations of those laws (such as sodomy, adultery, witchcraft) that are not capital offenses under current U.S. laws."
North was also a harbinger of doom over the spread of AIDS. According to NNDB,
"In his wryly-titled 1987 essay The Plague Has Come at Last, North predicted millions of deaths by AIDS, full hospitals by 1992. Quoting Camus and forecasting a global epidemic, North wrote:
"In 1992, we will run out of available hospital beds. This means that when you take a family member to stay in the hospital, you will either be sent away, or be sent to a very expensive private hospital, or they will start stacking AIDS victims up in minimal-care, crowded facilities.
"By then, many victims will be heterosexuals.
"But after 1991, it starts getting really serious. Unless a cure is found, or for some reason the disease ceases to be lethal, the doubling process gets us. Those infected today now number between three million and four million. The incubation period, says Dr. Koop, is ten years. They don't know how many people presently infected will actually get full-blown AIDS, but it may be as high as half. It may be 100%, if we wait long enough. But the disease is spreading fast. If it continues to double, 64 million Americans will be infected by the end of 1990. If it slows to half the present rate, and does so immediately, then "only" 15 million will be carriers in 1990.
"The article begins as a somewhat cogent diatribe, but quickly degenerates into the usual palm-waving and all-caps text of a junior high Robert Mcelwaine:
"The only long-term solution is MORAL AND RELIGIOUS. ... THERE IS GOING TO BE A WILD EXODUS FROM THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. You KNOW I'm right. All talk about "white flight" will end; regardless of race, color, or national origin, THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE GOING TO BE ABANDONED. ... Look, PEOPLE DON'T USE CONDOMS WHEN KISSING. ... WE NEED A PROPHET, NOT A PUBLIC RELATIONS AGENT FOR CONDOMS. ... THE AIDS VIRUS ATTACKS THE BRAIN. DEMENTIA IS THE RESULT. ... THERE IS NO SAFE SEX ANY MORE. ... SENTENCING YOUNG PEOPLE TO DEATH ... STRICT ISOLATION ... INSECTS ... WORLDWIDE PANIC ... LIFETIME CONTAGION ... CRITICAL MASS ..."
Gary North, on top of everything else, sits on the Council for National Policy along with several of his friends. The Council for National Policy is a highly secretive group of extreme right wingers who are very wealthy and very powerful.
In 1992, Ron Paul produced an independent newsletter. During this period, statements made by Paul raised more than a few eyebrows and are coming back to haunt him today. Here are Paul's own words:
"Opinion polls consistently show that only about 5 percent of blacks have sensible political opinions, i.e. support the free market, individual liberty and the end of welfare and affirmative action,"
Paul continued that politically sensible blacks are outnumbered "as decent people." Citing reports that 85 percent of all black men in the District of Columbia are arrested, Paul wrote:
"Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. 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," Paul said.
"…although we are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational. Black men commit murders, rapes, robberies, muggings and burglaries all out of proportion to their numbers.
Paul even had the chutzpah to say that African-American youths who commit crimes should be tried as adults. He has come under severe criticism not only for his remarks, but for using statistics that were published and skewed by the infamous racist Jared Taylor.
Not surprisingly, once this information surfaced, Paul started back-pedaling claiming that he didn't write those remarks and that a "ghostwriter" had been the culprit. Few believe this to be true, but even if it were he would not escape culpability as he allowed the statements to stand until that time when they might prove harmful to his bid for office.
Consequently, it is with great amusement that I have watched bloggers - of the conservative kind - ask the question, "Why is Stormfront endorsing Ron Paul? Moreover, they wonder why Paul doesn't rebuke their ideology and refuse their support.
Well…um…first of all, as reprehensible as the Stormfront website might be, they do have the right to support and endorse anyone they choose. Secondly, Ron Paul, as one reporter put it, is a "magnet for white supremacists." He attracts them because of his extremism and his right wing stance. He has also attracted a few from the other end of the spectrum, because of his stand on the war. So…what did they expect?
An endorsement from Stormfront is a logical and not unexpected move as David Duke and Jamie Kelso have tipped their hat in Paul's direction. Duke and Kelso have a huge following among Stormfronters and are joined at the hip with Don Black, Stormfront's owner and leader.
Ron Paul has also been a favorite among those at the Council of Conservative Citizens and the League of the South. He has been interviewed on Political Cesspool, the wildly popular radio show which proffers the racist and anti-immigration stances of the Council. Additionally, Paul's campaign progress is continuously monitored by the Council and Political Cesspool.
He is also the chairman of the Liberty Caucus, which includes some of the most conservative members of the House including Tom Tancredo, Jimmy Duncan, and Virgil Goode. Ron Paul is a member of Tom Tancredo's Immigration Reform Caucus, as well.
Tom Tancredo is another favorite among the racist and neo-Confederate groups to which he has pandered.
Paul has been termed the "Internet Darling" by the media because of his wide-spread support on the internet. He is ranked among the top internet search engines as generating the most hits and his YouTube videos have achieved an all time high with at least 33,000 subscribers.
Some claim that it is a mere handful of puppets who are "padding and skewing" the internet statistics, while others prophesy a real upset in the making.
Redstate.com, a popular Republican website, recently banned new Ron Paul supporters from engaging in any commentary referencing Paul. Chastising and warning Paul posters, the notice read as follows:
"Attention, Ron Paul Supporters (Life is *REALLY* Not Fair)," begins, "Effective immediately, new users may *not* shill for Ron Paul in any way shape, form or fashion. Not in comments, not in diaries, nada. If your account is less than 6 months old, you can talk about something else, you can participate in the other threads and be your zany libertarian self all you want, but you cannot pimp Ron Paul. Those with accounts more than six months old may proceed as normal."
Redstate founder, Erick Erickson stated, "They're terribly annoying and they don't add to the debate. If people are adding to the debate we don't have a problem with them coming here. But they're just coming to promote Ron Paul. They talk over everyone. They yell at everyone."
Actually, Redstate.com isn't the only internet site that is upset with Paul's computer savvy group of well-wishers. Many discussion groups throughout cyberspace have been the recipients of the spam-like overzealousness of Paul supporters.
Ron Paul has been repeatedly ignored and omitted by the media as well as many prominent groups seeking the presence of presidential hopefuls. That's not too surprising given the fact that, generally speaking, front-runners get most of the publicity. This is frustrating for those who seek to push Paul into the Republican forefront and perhaps accounts for the rabidity with which they promote their candidate.
Certainly, Ron Paul cannot be held responsible for those who seem to like his ideas. Certainly, no one can be held responsible for the fact that unsavory and unscrupulous people align themselves with him - that is, if they are uninvited. The question that looms and begs an answer is whether or not he sent the invitation.
I contend that by virtue of those with whom Ron Paul associates with, and by virtue of his comments the invitation is a tacit one - but an invitation just the same.
