Ron Paul’s recent speaking engagement at a fundraiser for a Holocaust-denying, renegade Catholic priest, who has been thrown out of the Church by the Vatican, combined with his nearly simultaneous interview of the anti-Semite, Julian Assange, on Paul’s web channel, have seriously damaged his credibility in this observer’s eyes, and makes us wonder if our long support of Ron Paul and his principles was mis-directed.
On the Principles for which he has argued, and they are the Jeffersonian Principles of Good Governance, the Natural Rights Liberty of the Individual, and the Free-Market, we have little disagreement. After reading of the allegations against Ron Paul, many times seemingly blown up and repeated over and over by the liberal-left Democratic media without quoting the actual abuses, and given the economic value to the vested interests that benefit from all the abuses in America that Ron Paul has argued against over and over, — given these two factors, we thought. during his two campaigns, that Ron Paul was being unfairly smeared by the Democratic Left, But these old allegations. in combination with Ron Paul’s recent hobnobbing with two notorious Holocaust-denying Jew-haters, make us believe that they could well be true. Ron Paul may mostly espouse the truth in his speeches, but these recent associations with Racists have tainted him irreparably in our view, and we’re pretty sure they will go on to taint his son when he runs for the Presidency, because if Rand Paul gains political momentum, then his father’s recent associations with Nazi ideologues will be brought up again and again, ruining his chances by association, and then the nation would be cursed with another Democratic Administration for at least four years. One might see 90% of a block of the largest minorities in America voting in lock-step against Rand Paul, instead of voting for whomever the Democrats push up there as their next dummy, simply because of his father’s hobnobbing with pretty vicious Racists.
Evidently what outed Assange’s racism was an article in Private Eye magazine by the editor, Ian Hilsop, which pointed out the long association between Julian Assange and the Holocaust-denier and notorious anti-Semite, Israel Shamir ( so labelled by both the leftwing British daily, the Guardian, and also the NY Times). According to Hilsop, when Assange read the article, he called Hilsop, and accused him and two other editors of being part of a “Jewish Conspiracy” against him, although Hilsop isn’t Jewish, and the other two editors had Gentile mothers. Likewise Assange accused the producer of a BBC report critical of Wikileaks and Assange as having a “Zionist” wife, although the editor said that the charge was proposterous, pointed out that neither he nor his wife were even Jewish, and that she had never had any association with Zionism. Given the BBC’s own anti-Semitism in censoring listener responses critical of Arabs, but permitting blatantly anti-Semitic comments from Muslims, as well as the Guardian’s hypercritical attitude towards Israel, it is obvious that Assange has begun to revert to labelling anyone who points out his rotten associations with Racists, as being either part of a “Jewish Conspiracy” against him or a “Zionist”, the behaviour of a typical denuded Nazi.
Assange’s cyberparty, the Wikileaks Party, which campaigned in the recent Australian elections, and which Assange said in the Ron Paul interview was gaining 25-28% in pre-election polls. apparently crashed and burned when it turned on its proposed alliance with the environmentalist Green Party, and endorsed neo-Fascist parties like the Shooter’s Party, which wants to be able to go into any Australian National Park and murder defenseless animals at will, and the Australia First party, a foreigner-hating bunch of White foreigners who stole Australia from the Aborigines. Evidently, that awoke the Australian Greens to the real meaning of the Wikileaks Party, and the Party melted down, receiving 0.62% of the vote, after Assange’s above prediction on TV of polling 25-28%. Quite a melt down.
Tragically, these are the type of folks that Ron Paul gives speeches for, and has on his TV show. It might be that Ron Paul is willing to talk to anyone, no matter if they are a racist or not, but personally we wonder how any true Libertarian could hold racist views, since Libertarians regard all men as being equally endowed with certain unalienable Rights, and a racist would have to view some men as being unequally endowed, or not having free-will at all because of their genetic heritage. Personally, we think a Racist differs little from a Communist or Socialist who would rob a man of the fruits of his labor, and one should have no contact with either. Both are haters, one of a race, the other of an entire economic class, and one contaminates oneself if one hangs out with either of them, although non-racist Socialists and Libertarians could work together politically on Civil Rights issues, like the Right to Privacy, or opposition to Corporate subsidies, or opposing a peacetime draft or “national service”, or protecting Nature to preserve Capitalism and Life on Earth. Both Racists and Communists would employ terror or violence, and whip up animus against their chosen targets; a Libertarian never, except for an animus against war, injustice, and environmental rape.
Nor should one conclude that all Ron Paul supporters or admirers of Julian Assange are necessarily or even mostly Fascists or Nazis. On the contrary, we’d say that the vast majority of Ron Paul’s rank-and-file supporters are rabidly anti-Fascist, which is why they admire him and what he has said in his campaigns so much. Likewise, many Julian Assange admirers have no idea of his connections with the foaming-at-the-mouth Jew-hater, Israel Shamir (a pseudonym). What they see is someone speaking out against the massive invasions of Privacy conducted by so many world governments, and the subjugation of the Individual around the globe. One might classify them generally as anarcho-utopians, which is pretty far from Hitlerism or Russian Stalinism.
We believe the principles of the Free-Market, of Individual Liberty, and the defense of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, are the best prophylactics against the Nazi disease, a disease of Collectivism in combination with Racism. Jeffersonian Libertarianism virtually precludes the establishment of such a Nazi state or system. In fact, if Ron Paul is a crypto-Nazi as some have alleged, then it is ironic that his campaigning has done more to establish a broad anti-Nazi, anti-Totalitarian mentality in the American Electorate than perhaps any other modern-day American politician, and possibly, if his motives are really to establish a Nazi State as some allege, he is so stupid as to actually have initiated widespread attitudes against Nazism and Authoritarianism in the American Public.
Ron Paul should consider that the fees he earned at the Fatima “Peace” Conference, and his friendly interview with Julian Assange on his station, may mean in the long run that Senator Ted Cruz becomes President of the United States, instead of Senator Rand Paul. As Martin Bright, a British Labour Party political analyst, explained so well, “If you choose to tolerate or defend a nasty antisemite, it is only a matter of time before people begin to wonder if you are a nasty antisemite yourself.” And as wise Ben Franklin observed, “He who lies down with dogs, shall rise up with fleas.”
Why are you scratching your head, Dr. Paul?
