Reason Number 4,783 To Not Support Ron Paul

Fringe candidates with fringe ideas attract fringe supporters with fringe ideologies.

Thank God for the Southern Poverty Law Center, for doing the work the MSM isn’t doing to scrutinize Ron Paul’s dead-end and pointless candidacy for President. This took place about a week ago:

The Robert A. Taft Club, a group headed by a man with a network of racist connections, has announced that a U.S. congressman, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), will address the group this Thursday at a restaurant in Arlington, Va. The Taft Club is led by Marcus Epstein (right), who serves as the executive director of both white nationalist Pat Buchanan’s The American Cause and the Team America PAC, which is run by Buchanan’s sister, Bay Buchanan. Epstein writes for the anti-immigrant hate site vdare.com and he advocates for white supremacist organizations. He is especially fond of American Renaissance — a white supremacist journal that has suggested that blacks have “psychopathic personalities” — and attends the journal’s biannual conferences. In 2006, Epstein invited the head of American Renaissance’s parent organization, Jared Taylor, to speak to the Taft Club on the issue of “Race and Conservatism.”

Think this is an isolated occurrence? It’s not. Sadly, this is part of a larger pattern of support among the extreme, racist far-right for Ron Paul. I’m too disgusted by this video to embed it on my blog, but you should watch it to see how Ron Paul’s crazy views work to attract hateful people.

This excerpt from Alternet says it all:

Perhaps people like Big Ed and other imbeciles who mindlessly repeat how refreshing is this loon from Texas ought to take a moment or two and acquaint themselves with his long and consistent voting record. If that’s too tedious for you… well, STFU about Ron Paul. There’s a reason– a really good one– he’s being supported by the Nazi fringe of far right politics.

    You’re ignorance astounds me. Guilt by association, ay? Apparently if you want a protected border, you’re a racist. If you work with Pat Buchanan, you’re an anti-Semite. If you’re Ron Paul and you speak to a group of Robert Taft supporters, you’re a racist again.

    Wow the histrionics on this website are amazing and funny. I think it’s a spoof on the upcoming best candidate the GOP has ever had!

    Viva Ron Paul!

    He’s a rising star, just raised another cool million THIS WEEK.

    Well if you want to talk about appearing before people with hateful ideologies let’s talk about Hillary, Obama and Richardson who actually BELONG to these groups!

    LaRaza, Mecha, and Maldef? C’mon get real….

    This person is tiny squeak in the internet of public opinion about the greatness and all encompassing platform of Ron Paul… the kindest person in the universe. LOL

    The commies can endorse Hillary and I suppose that’s OK?

    I vote for the candidate and his positions, not his supporters. Personally, I think the group did it in hopes to hurt Ron Paul. They do not really agree with his positions, they would much rather have a facist type government etc etc etc. Do you think they do not realize for 1 second that an endorsement from them would hurt the candidate? But it only applies to the dumb, and Ron Paul supporters aren’t dumb, so you are wasting your time with this garbage.

    Btw, has anyone else noticed people act like they are voting for a King? Just goes to show how screwed up this country is.

    You seem to fail to realize that in the eyes of the SPLC, everyone is a racist and every group is a hate group but themselves. That in itself is pretty old news.

    no matter who you are or what affliation you are with.
