Slightly different approach on the fascism thing

All over L.A. signs are appearing for racist psychopath Bill Johnson-- and the signs are being put up by the same people who are putting up Ron Paul signs. Although Paul officially withdrew his endorsement of Johnson once word of Johnson's egregious racism leaked out, the two campaigns were so completely intertwined that it is virtually impossible to separate them. Johnson' campaign manager, Holly Clearman, is also Ron Paul's state coordinator (as well as a Republican Party candidate for the GOP County Central Committee).

This is far from Paul's first tango with bizarre extremists beyond the pale. But Bob Barr, who is courting the more rational members of the Ron Paul Revolution, say he wants nothing to do with the lunatic fringe. The neo-Nazi fringe of the Republican Party base has been urging that people support Barr in order to "send a message to the Republican Party that conservatives and Whites won’t sit still as they are stuck with a liberal presidential candidate like McCain. Supporting Bob Barr might even pave the way for a Third Party to replace the increasingly repugnant Republican Party... If voting for McCain is a waste of time, since he’s never going to win (because conservatives hate him), then the best course of action may be a protest vote for the Libertarian candidate Bob Barr."

Unlike Paul's confused organization, Barr's campaign was very clear and direct in their response to the hate-mongers on the right of the GOP coalition:
The Barr campaign is not going to be a vehicle for every fringe and hate group to promote itself. We do not want and will not accept the support of haters. Anyone with love in their heart for our country and for every resident of our country regardless of race, religion, nationality or sexual orientation is welcome with open arms.

Tell the haters I said don't let the door hit you on the backside on your way out!

Tomorrow is the primary in L.A. in which even Ron Paul agrees that Bill Johnson is unworthy of support. His own words (in his crazy book, Amendment to the Constitution, beloved on the outer fringes of Republican-loonyland:
“No person shall be a citizen of the United States unless he is a non-Hispanic white of the European race, in whom there is no ascertainable trace of Negro blood, nor more than one-eighth Mongolian, Asian, Asia Minor, Middle Eastern, Semitic, Near Eastern, American Indian, Malay or other non-European or non-white blood, provided that Hispanic whites, defined as anyone with an Hispanic ancestor, may be citizens if, in addition to meeting the aforesaid ascertainable trace and percentage tests, they are in appearance indistinguishable from Americans whose ancestral home is in the British Isles or Northwestern Europe. Only citizens shall have the right and privilege to reside permanently in the United States.”

You want that sitting on the bench as a judge? And if he starts there, how much longer before rubber stamps like Susan Collins, James Inhofe, Norm Coleman, Gordon Smith, and John Sununu are voting to confirm him to the Supreme Court? Don't forget to vote on Bill Johnson tomorrow so these creeps never get a chance to.

Aren't we forgetting where Ron Paul's name has been attached to several newsletters in the 1990's which contained racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic content?

I see a lot of guilt by association here, but I don't see very much in the way of substance.

I see the advocacy of a third party, but complete ignorance to the state of the strongest third party, the LP, which is crumbling under the weight of an opportunistic and unprincipled candidate, Bob Barr.

I also see a commenter hell-bent on ignoring Ron Paul's actual political record. It would be just as bad to target, say, Obama because of his association with a certain Pastor and using that to define his entire career.

Ron Paul doesn't fuck with racists. Paul declared racism to simply be an ugly form of collectivism. Paul's record in congress and in his works in are free of flip-flops, back-peddles, or contradictions. Ron Paul is a lover of freedom, for all people, and his entire idealogy is diametrically opposed to racism. Racists are stupid, thier endorsement warrants nothing.

And yes, fuck Bob Barr and fuck Obama.
Vote for the evil you know, vote for McCain.
