RLC supporting Gary Johnson and bashing Ron Paul and the dailypaul.comSubmitted by Neverquit on Sat, 04/30/2011 - 13:55
For all of you GJ supporters read this. This is not by accident by the Johnson campaign. Don't think for a second they are not behind this, this is another Bob Barr all over again.
A man that can't even keep his own marriage vows WILL IN NO WAY EVER keep his campaign promises.
Portions of the article on their website:
Paul’s hardcore current supporters, while enthusiastic, also turn people off from their candidate time and time again. At RonPaulForums.com and DailyPaul.com, Jews are targeted by diehard supporters for being pro-Israel and for creating and maintaining the Federal Reserve System. Such conspiracy theories and endless attacks are not productive for the liberty movement. In fact, they hurt the liberty message and their sentiments are anti-libertarian according to Congressman Paul himself. Unfortunately, neither the Congressman nor his numerous organizations have ever put out a message to distance themselves from these activists.
In addition to the vocal conspiratorial-minded supporters who are a turnoff when trying to make a dent in electoral politics, Paul also has two items of baggage to contend with: First, he doesn’t seem to care about accepting money from known white supremacists like Don Black, who donated $500 to the Paul 2008 campaign. Mr. Black was the former Grand Wizard of the KKK. It seems that the $500 would have been less important than sending a message regarding the types of supporters valuable to a campaign focused on winning.
Finally, the Ron Paul newsletter issue has still not been resolved. All we know so far is that it was not Congressman Paul who either approved of the newsletters or knew about them until after the fact, but racist newsletters will become an issue with the media if the Congressman wins the GOP nomination. Newsletters with Dr. Paul’s name from 1992 implied blacks were more likely to commit crimes than whites. The controversial newsletters include rants against the Israeli lobby, gays, AIDS victims and Martin Luther King, Jr., who is described as a “pro-Communist philanderer.” Given that Paul’s General Election opponent is Barack Obama, the Paul for President campaign post-primary may be over before it even began given the toxicity of these two items of baggage.
Is Gary going to denounce the RLC? I think not!
