White Nationalist Attacks Ron Paul and Us for Not being focused on Race

Note: I do NOT agree with this article. I think white nationalism is a fringe movement based on fallacies that will never appeal to more than a few 1000 ignoramuses. I post this article to refute those MSM who say Ron Paul is Racist." If he (and we) were racists, why would white nationalists attack us???? I also think--based on the recent Audit the Fed movement--that economic ideas can get people motivated to act.

Ron Paul’s The Revolution And Libertarianism’s Fatal Flaw
By Richard Hoste

If America’s political elite was immoral, corrupt or just plain wrong on one or two issues, the country might have some hope. But reading Ron Paul’s The Revolution however, one gets the idea that we truly are doomed. This is despite the author’s optimism, and his assuring us that “the Revolution” is just around the corner.

First of all, there is the “choice” we are offered every few years. A “fiscal conservative” wows audiences with his stand against a “bridge to nowhere”. That’s all fine and dandy, but how about the other 99.99999% of the federal budget?

An “anti-war” candidate might advocate that we get out of Iraq within a year. But how about the other 129 (not a typo) countries the US has troops in? Paul rightly compares the debate in this country to the political dissent allowed in Pravda.

Never is Ron Paul as right as he is on foreign policy. When Bush administration senior economic advisor Larry Lindsey estimated that the Iraq war could cost between $100 and $200 billion, the White House was embarrassed. Now the estimated cost is around $2 trillion (to put that into perspective 2 trillion/308 million Americans = approx. $6500 per person).

When we are seeing our standard of living drop more than it has at any time since the Great Depression, will anybody ask whether we need 64,000 troops in Germany? How about giving the American people a say in whether it’s worth it? (Never mind that there’s nothing in the constitution about a worldwide empire.)

The regime in Washington is a rogue entity, a law unto itself. Paul quotes an unnamed columnist:

SNIP . .

Of course, whiteness in a movement isn’t a refutation of it. That is, unless you’ve converted to the diversity cult. But, unfortunately, modern libertarians have.

A movement based on economics will never inspire the passion or loyalty as one based on blood. It’s because the Left has understood this that they’ve been able to remake America.

There won’t be a successful Right, to say nothing of a “Revolution”, until conservatives learn this lesson—and come to terms with their whiteness.

Race is an antiquated concept.

While it is nice to see even favorable parts of articles about Ron Paul, the conclusion drawn by the author is reprehensible. White Nationalist complains of Libertarian lack of focus on race?
First of all, white is a lack of skin pigmentation not a race. Secondly, there is but one race the human race.
It is a natural human tendency to group peoples according to appearance, but it is detestable to use this as a basis for ones political thought.
Race as a concept predates modern genetics and no longer (really never did) has any clear and meaningful definition.

Yes, the article is slanted.

It's slanted very much in favor of Ron Paul, except for one thing that the author wants to make a point out of.
So that issue becomes the "focal point" of the article to anyone who is hyper-sensitive about political correctness.

And the "diversity cult" he mentions IS a cult.
It's racist at its core.
If a person TRULY believes that there are no differences at all between races, then there is no need to "diversify".

See it for what it is.
It's a Marxist class-warfare tactic, which is re-named "political correctness", and used as a bludgeon.

Yet you focus on this article.

There's the shame.

Didn't read it. Won't.

I may not know the truth, but I know when I'm being lied to...

I may not know the truth, but I know when I'm being lied to...

Retards...

that's is all.

Can't be a Libertarian and be Obsessed with Race

Because when you worry about your race being taken advantage of, dying out, losing rights, etc. You have stopped thinking of yourself as an individual and begun thinking of yourself in terms of a collective. The idea of the collective is inherently socialist and completely opposed to true freedom. People have rights, the collective does not. Which is why we are diametrically opposed to programs like affirmative action.

Good points

There is a fine line to be walked, in my opinion. I believe it is important to celebrate those who literally gave theirs lives to put us here. It was not the only thing they did while they were here, but we would not exist without them. I do NOT put them on the same level with the Creator, who put the "here" here.

I am not going to continue this, if no one agrees with me, so be it. I am not going to keep bumping this post to try to make people break a habit.

It is NOT about me identifying with "my race" - it is about me identifying with my ancestors, who happened to be white. Because they were white, I get called a racist for attempting to honor them.

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

Let's keep this in mind............

when the campaign rolls around............

Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.”
– Patrick Henry, speech to the Virginia Convention

“The Internet is the first thing that humanity has built that humanity doesn't understand, the largest experiment in anarchy that we have ever had." - Eric Schmidt

I am not white, I am just very, very, very light brown.

As for race, I don't believe multiple races exist; someone who does is a racist. Skin color is a characteristic within the human race, as is eye color. Separating people by skin color makes as much sense as separating by eye color.
grant (green eyes)

Well put, grant--reminds me of Bob Marley's song "War"


Until the colour of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes -
Me say war.

You may be a racist (taken from Jeff Foxworthy on red neck)

You may be a racist if you voted for Obama because he's black.

If neo-nazi's are flipping us...

...$h!t, then I consider that a good thing. It shows the world that we do not identify or agree with them or their f^*#%d up views.

Just ignore that website.

Or learn to seek truth where you encounter it

I do NOT support this man's position, I do support his right to have it.

That said, there is a certain amount of truth. Tiny, but that is how it works. A little truth gets twisted and turned until it is a big lie, and then people stop looking for (and therefore fail to see) the kernel of truth dying under the weight of the lies. Watch this, listen to this man:

"White people can't stand up" - that is the trouble indeed. Why can't I be as proud of my white heritage as anyone else of any other culture is? I do NOT mean become a racist, but my ancestors were amazing people. They were not saints, but they helped found this nation, helped shape it in many ways. If I say "I am proud to be white" that makes me a de facto racists in many people's minds, and that is not right either.

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

In answer to:

"Why can't I be as proud of my white heritage as anyone else of any other culture is?"

For the same reason I am not proud of being short. My color, my height, my features were given to me the same way my "heritage" was given to me. I played no active role, so there is nothing for me to be proud of.

Let me be proud of what I have done, not what I have inherited.

Oh, I believe we ought to honor our ancestors

I am as honest as I can be, I mentioned they were not saints. I believe it is important to remember the seven generations before and seven generations to come with honor, though. Not anything magic about seven, but that is the tradition I was taught.

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

Honor and pride are 2 different things

Your confounding of the two seems too conveniently contrived. You're not tricking anyone here.

honestly NOT trying to trick anyone

I am pretty transparent by deliberate effort.
There is a TINY seed of truth, that is what my original reply said. This is what happens, everyone wants to just turn their back on this man (and now me) without hearing what he says. We MIGHT be able to educate this man out of his ignorance IF we could hear his truth.

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

I'm brown

The KKK and some other groups have some VERY good ideas, they're not stupid on many things.

It's just that little thing where they'd want to kill me because I'm brown.

But I'm with you to a point. Bad men can have Great ideas... and good men can have stupid ideas... but anyways...

IMO racism is a result of ignorance. Grateful I read that Gunga Din poem as a very small child.

I'm with you

Down with nepotism

Amen
