Today's Reading Assignment
...from Andrew Walden at The American Thinker, on the supporters that the Ron Paul campaign won't acknowledge--or apparently, repudiate. Turns out that the GOP/Libertarian Congressman-turned-presidential-hopeful has picked up quite a following among neo-Nazis and anti-Semites.
More disturbingly, it appears that the candidate has accepted donations from at least one Neo-Nazi group and its leader--in fact, the organization has a donation link to the Paul campaign, which (at last report) has not been blocked. Additionally, there is no indication that Mr. Paul has returned any money raised from these sources.
As Mr. Walden notes, this is more than a case of a solitary link from a hate-group website, or a single donation by a well-known white supremacist. A large segment of the kook fringe, including avowed racists and anti-Semites, are coming out of the woodwork to back Mr. Paul. And while other politicians would repudiate their support--and their venomous message--the Paul campaign remains strangely silent.
Hat tip: Powerline.
