    Show me the quote. You could have just made up those words.

    Ban I respect most of your posts even though I don't agree with some of them. Your posts on this thread however are not one that I respect as anyone who has met or heard RP would know that the man is far from being a racist.

    So, you didn't read the newsletters that Paul wrote? The quote is directly from them, in the link that I provided.

    I would suggest reading what Paul wrote in his newsletters. Doubtful that it will, but it should change your opinion. He certainly runs from discussing them these days!

    I know this is off topic, Ban, but if you are going to target Ron Paul then you have to do so while also attacking someone who seems to be a hero of yours. Was Jesse right in saying these things? And if not, should we disregard any and everything he has done before or since these comments?


    It's tough to imagine this year's Republican National Convention featuring a prime-time speaker who once said that that "Zionism is a kind of poisonous weed that is choking Judaism." Or that he was "sick and tired of hearing about the Holocaust." Or that traditional Democratic support for Israel is because of "the Jewish element in the party ... a kind of glorified form of bribery." And certainly not if he had ever referred to Jews as "Hymies" and New York as "Hymietown."
    The Rev. Jesse Jackson, of course, has made all of these comments, and more. Jackson said those things in his 30s and 40s, and has since apologized for them. But his speech at the Democratic Convention Tuesday evening is at the very least an interesting example of the double standard that clearly exists in the media's -- and the Democratic Party's -- sensitivity to anti-Semitism.

    With all that said, I don't know what racism would have to do with the fed. Robert Byrd was on committees that affected the fed and he was a member of the KKK. All money is green, so racism should have never been brought into this discussion, IMO.

    1) I never called you a racist jerk. You are putting words in my mouth which I find incidentally is something people do who like to use the racist label as a way to shout down their opponent or opposing views. So just stop that sort of thing there is no need for it. It is the liberal equivalent of calling someone a "communist" or something other neo-con rhetoric on the right. Its all about polarization, bottom line.

    2) Pls, give me the link from where you got it, otherwise it is just words.

    3) I am VERY comfortable supporting him. Because I know the difference a Black PR spin & the guy's actual platform. Out of all the stuff to pull out about RP this is the only thing that vaguely sticks. The only other thing the MSM can talk about is that he is "crazy." Well then most of the USA most be crazy as the Tea Party basically took most of the things he talked about for the past 8 years & brought them to the fore. And now the TPers have swept into the Senate & the HOR lead by his son.

    RP is well versed in Fiscal Policy & the Constitution & the history of this country. Anyone with half a brain knows that the FED is Private Central Bank & creates a Fiat currency that will be the financial ruin of the USA. He has taken a stand against that, excessive spending & taxation for over 30 years in service.

    He stood against BOTH the reverent militarism of the Bush administration & the socialist agenda of the Obama administration.

    Most politicians couldn't stand up to the scrutiny that the MSM has flung @ him. But Obama still has not produced a birth certificate has he? And WikiLeaks has certainly revealed all the dirty laundry under his adminstration like the constant bombing of Yemen & the killing of civilains. Or the bombing on video in Baghdad that killed journalists. Yet Assnage is labeled a criminal while SOS Clinton was suggesting that US diplomats steal Credit Card info from government officials from other countries to be able to track them.

    If there was an error in judgment in printing those newsletters I find that far more forgivable of RP then just about any of the other stuff that has been coming out that has happened under Obama or Bush. How quickly you forget about Obama's trusted Pastor was labeled a crazy racist & then was thrown under the bus by him.

    DO you have the link? I never saw my post. I had to become a member of the website but then couldn't find what I wrote.

      1) Pointing out a double standard doesn’t make you a racist;
      2) The radio shows “he” apparently is discussing were aired in the late 80s & early 90s. Unless someone has a clip about them, we really don’t have a frame of reference to debate that point;
      3) To quote one of the links this blog references : Ron Paul may not be a racist, but he became complicit in a strategy of pandering to racists—and taking “moral responsibility” for that now means more than just uttering the phrase. It means openly grappling with his own past—acknowledging who said what, and why. Otherwise he risks damaging not only his own reputation, but that of the philosophy to which he has committed his life.
      Having followed Ron Paul’s career for more then 15 years I know the man is NOT a racist. I can appreciate the sentiment I quoted & could agree that whatever association Mr Paul had with people writing those articles, needs to be clarified & handled if need be.
      4) I see most of those things written as an over-reaction to the “Political Correctness” that was being shoved down our throats 18 years ago with the coming of the Clinton Administration & Pro-Pharma heavy Healthcare Bill.
      Much of the PC stuff was created by media that was influenced by the psycho-babble world @ that time. Part of the pharma sponsored programs were to get kids “diagnosed & labeled” & then put on “medication,’ (drugs) & then aligned with Pharma sponsored “support groups” so as to create empathy for these “labeled kids.”
      This entire PC thing was created so people couldn’t speak their minds & the truth anymore.
      5) If you are so caught up in this “Ron Paul is racist” thing, “you are being played sucka…” “You are a chump for the Man!”
      -OUT!

    Once Paul ran for President, of course, they went into damage control mode and tried to convolute the newsletters. However, this opening paragraph can never be overlooked.

    "There has been controversy over Ron Paul?s ties to racism for some time now. Many people have pointed to Ron Paul?s Newsletters as proof of his racism. Paul has previously admitted to writing the newsletters and defended the statements in 1996, then blamed them on an unnamed ghostwriter in 2001 and then denied any knowledge of them in 2008. He has given no explanation, for how the racism entered his newsletter. If we are to take Paul at his word, he is guilty of at least promoting racism on a large scale. Paul earned almost a million dollars a year from the racist, conspiracy theorist newsletters. Here are some excerpts that I?ve found."

    And we wonder why "those claims" keep surfacing against republicans? However, if you're comfortable with such things, then, as the kids say, "it's all good."
    The same article says this:

    This shows much more common sense admonishing him not for the racist viewpoint but for failing to handle how that sort of stuff ended up with his name on it. I persoanlly agree. I would like that clarified. But I know enough of his platform & agenda not to throw the baby out with the bath water. Meanwhile our current President who promised us out of the war has escalated it, as I predicted & condones bombing campaigns that are killing innocent Arab civilians in the name of fighting "terrorism." Talk about BOOL$hit....
