TheDailyBeast: The Ron Paul Institute: Be Afraid, Very Afraid

The former presidential contender is back, this time as head of a new ‘institute’ for ‘peace’ comprised of anti-Semites, 9/11 truthers, and dictator-lovers. James Kirchick reports.

The newsletters’ content—a toxic stew of racism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, sympathy for right-wing militia movements, and support for a litany of conspiracy theories—had been revealed by this writer in 2008. But Paul’s latter-day resurgence, particularly with young voters and the Tea Party, provoked a renewed round of interest in his shady associations and fringe beliefs. The title of a front-page article in The New York Times, “Paul Disowns Extremists’ Views but Doesn’t Disavow the Support,” neatly encapsulated Paul’s strategy of appealing to the far right while stopping just short of explicitly endorsing their views.

Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?

Looks like TPTB are afraid of a little Truth!!!

Get ready for more assaults on liberty.

Yeah, it's Shillville, USA over there!

Almost seems like one person has two user IDs / accounts and is playing it up and having lotsa fun doin' it! (I've seen it before.)

What would the Founders do?

it's scary that Americans

it's scary that Americans have those views. It shows how we've completely fallen into the abyss.

Peace is a fringe, extremist position

Apparently, Peace is a fringe, extremist position. Unless you talk to anybody in the world.

OK I put my time in on their comment section. Think I did some good. Got to go now. Somebody else's turn to take a shift being the smiley happy inclusive Ron Paul guy on site. LOL.... 350 people listening maybe you can wake a few up if you try. At least they weren't censoring my posts, which is rare. Maybe they just haven't gotten to it yet.

Is Ron Paul running for

Is Ron Paul running for office?

These hit pieces remind me of the campaign. The comments below the story are hard to read!

Why are they attacking Ron? I don't think it has much to do with Rand all they have to do is run a Bush in 2016 and Rand will be done. Maybe that is the plan one of the cooky Paul's or a Bush. We all know who the MSM will be behind.

To coin a popular younger generation phrase,

WHATEVER!

RP is free and clear to do as he pleases - they can trash-talk, twist his words, and malign his character to their heart's content.

I choose the ignore button.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

I didn't read the article either.

DP gave me enough info so I didn't have to click on it.

Hmmm

Is that site similar to the skeptical Libertarian that slammed Ron's homeschooling education

What is the rep of the Daily Beast

Is the Daily Beast a neo-con site primarily? What is their paradigm / deal ..?

The equation

of anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism is interesting.

It's like saying you hate blacks because you disapprove of the actions of a specific group of people that happen to be black.

No one even know who this guy is outside of us

Ignore him and don't give him attention. He is obviously hard up for inflating his ego.

The problem is he is so fixated on RP the man and can't possibly argue against the philosophy.
So he resorts to personal attacks....no substance what so ever. We have moved far beyond this clown. If exposing the letters is his claim to fame then he is obviously desperate to remain relevant. Shouldn't he be focused on inventing cold fusion or something like that?

I'm actually laughing out here. The whole thing is so amusing.

And I didn't even bother to read the thing.

This is yet more proof that any hack with access to blog software could distort even Mother Theresa's life story to make her out to be the biggest backstabbing murderous whore in all of history.

I'm sorry but it's hilarious.

Mother Theresa was NO saint...

James K back again

After smearing Ron Paul for the past 4 years I see this turd is back once again....

Check out the dudes Wikipedia

Check out the dudes Wikipedia page. He is apparently the one who exposed the newsletters in the 2008 campaign. Also, he apparently responded to Ben swanns criticisms of his reporting on the issue and the byline revelation.

Ron's above the target

BOMBS AWAY ! Cockroaches begin to scurry.

Please tell me someone from

Please tell me someone from the institute or Lew Rockwell himself is going to respond to this shithead?

This just gives me more resolve

because of the knowledge that there are even people like this. It certainly makes me realize that we're fighting not some coincidence of principle differences but rather a coordinated, contrived and covert effort to win minds over, even with the absence of any rational logic whatsoever.

Only discerning logic and dedicated hard work will prevail.

To my fellow DP members: Focus. We have lots to do and time diminishes!

Disgusting

Steaming pile of brain-vomit.

Goodness. They sound scared and angry as HELL against truth.

Miserable them.

Kirchick is a very little man

He must use big lies to make himself look big. The rant against Ron Paul is just a retread of old accusations long discredited. The attacks against Lew Rockwell, Walter Bock, etc., are something new...but no less despicable.

LOL! They pulled out all the stops, didn't they?

"racism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, sympathy for right-wing militia movements, and support for a litany of conspiracy theories" - I think they left off "baby eating."
Way to go RP fringe! We have struck fear into the heart of a dumbass.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Fishy yur killing me!

Goodness. Okay, now I need rest after the good laugh.

Wish me luck I won't have nightmares of Dr. Paul as dict@tor!

LMAO. Better than The Onion.
