Words Of "Wisdom" from Ron Paul - Race Relations

The following are excerpts from newsletters sent out by Ron Paul from 1978 that have been dug up by The New Republic and show the man's true colors. If any Ron Paul supporters want to try to defend this, by all means, leave a comment.

Ron Paul on the LA Riots: "Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks three days after rioting began. ... What if the checks had never arrived? No doubt the blacks would have fully privatized the welfare state through continued looting. But they were paid off and the violence subsided."

Ron Paul on MLK Jr.:

From a Dec 1990 newsletter: MLK was "a world-class adulterer," he "seduced underage girls and boys" and he "replaced the evil of forced segregation with the evil of forced integration."

From a Jan 1991 newsletter: MLK was a "a "flagrant plagiarist with a phony doctorate" and he was a "world-class philanderer."

In October 1990 Ron Paul suggested the following as potential new names for New York City: "Welfaria," "Zooville," "Rapetown," "Dirtburg," and "Lazyopolis" and suggested that, rather than protesting at the Statue of Liberty, black activists like Rev. Al Sharpton should, instead, "hold that demonstration at a food stamp bureau or a crack house."

The lunacy doesn't end there - there is more to come.

I found his comments regarding MLK's doctoral degree particularly offensive. Like Dr. King, I'm an American Baptist and while I never attended the same school he did, I know it has a long standing affiliation with the American Baptist Church (ABC-USA). Guess Ron Paul and I have a lot more to disagree over.
