Default Re: Holy Crap! Andrew Sullivan endorses Ron Paul

so since this thread started with kang making a joke about the newsletters, perhaps we can continue the discussion here? here's a twitter feed from a guy who is just culling quotes from over 50 scans of newsletters he found:


sooooooo anyone care to offer a plausible defense/explanation for this? this is not just run of the mill stuff. it is vile, ridiculous, ideological racism. not casual racism. seriously ideological stuff. also plenty of total nonsense conspiracy theories regarding the government coming to arrest you, and lots of crap about "new money". two other points for the inevitable "lew rockwell wrote them for paul!" first off, paul was hauling in a ton of money annually from these things. you really think something that generates this much revenue from a person would be something they had *zero* knowledge of? also, there's video now of Paul in 1987 and 1995 touting the newsletters. Then, in 08, he pretended to know nothing about them. so he's clearly lying to some extent here.

and even beyond that, let's say that (and at this point, this is fairly implausible) paul had literally nothing to do with these newsletters. he's still friendly with lew rockwell. shouldn't he explain why he's friends with this guy?
She said the theme of this party's the Industrial Age, and you came in dressed like a train wreck.
