How is it for all of this time that Ron Paul has been a member of congress, not one Republican has brought up the racist newsletters that appeared under Ron Paul's name:
As Ron Paul rises in the polls, he is once again fending off questions about those pesky newsletters where racist material appeared under his name. This time around, rather than expressing much in the way of regret, Paul is instead slamming the media for rehashing what he considers an old, irrelevant story.
To recap, back in the 1990s, Ron Paul produced a series of newsletters, all with his name on them, which published a ream of racist and anti-Semitic columns. Among a long list of offensive comments, one notorious column about the LA riots said that, “Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks.” Another pilloried Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as “Hate Whitey Day.” Paul has always denied writing them and insists he doesn’t know who did. He has expressed regret that the comments were printed.
but now that the "isolationist" Ron Paul appears to be picking up support, the neo-conservative Republicans NOW want to play the race card on Ron Paul? These newsletters were known the last time Ron Paul ran for the Republican nomination.
