Ron Paul attracts a certain sort of person, and it's quite troubling. He's got the support of Alex Jones, who is a purveyor of conspiracy theories relating to 9/11. He's a crank of the first order.
That doesn't bother me nearly as much as this does.
A LoneStarTimes.com investigation has conclusively established that a leading figure in the American neo-Nazi / White-Supremacist movement has provided financial support to Ron Paul’s 2008 Presidential campaign.We're seeing that Paul has a following among the fringe right attracting the likes of Jones and Stormfront, a white supremacist group whose hatred and venom towards others, including rabid anti-Semitism, is well documented.
The individual in question is Don Black, the founder, owner and operator of Stormfront, a “white power” website that both professional journalists and watch-dog groups have identified as the premier English-language racist/hate-site on the Internet.
If he doesn't go ahead and repudiate these people, his campaign should be over. While I don't expect Paul to return the money in either instance, even though these guys are as fringe as they come, I do expect someone to bring this up at the next GOP debate, preferably when Paul goes into his inevitable rant on the US and 9/11 and all that jazz.
