Copies Of Paul’s Newsletters Leak Online

Texas Rep. Ron Paul has tried to avoid discussing the racist, homophobic, conspiracy-mongering newsletters that were published under his name throughout the ’80s and ’90s, evidently hoping that the controversy will stay buried in his file cabinets if he continues to disavow those writings and shut down reporters who try to bring them up. But damaging information about the newsletters continues to surface.

The blog “Et tu, Mr. Destructo?” has obtained scans of over 50 copies of the various Paul newsletters, and posted them online. Some of the entries are racist; some are homophobic; some seek to incite violence against the government; all are deeply damaging to Paul’s presidential ambitions.

Three of the most inflammatory quotes are reproduced below. To see the full gallery, visit “Et tu, Mr. Destructo?”

Ron Paul Newsletter—October, 1990

“A mob of black protestors, led by the ‘Rev.’ Al Sharpton, occupied and closed the Statue of Liberty recently, demanding that New York be renamed Martin Luther King City ‘to reclaim it for our people.’ Hmmm. I hate to agree with the Rev. Al, but maybe a name change is in order. Welfaria? Zooville? Rapetown? Dirtburg? Lazyopolis? But Al, the Statue of Liberty? Next time, hold that demonstration at a food stamp bureau or a crack house.”

Ron Paul Newsletter — December 1990

“Boy, it sure burns me to have a national holiday for that pro-communist philanderer, Martin Luther King. I voted against this outrage time and time again as a Congressman. What an infamy that Ronald Reagan approved it! We can thank him for our annual Hate Whitey Day. Listen to a black radio talk show in any major city. The racial hatred makes a KKK rally look tame.”

Ron Paul Survival Report—September, 1994:

“Those who don’t commit sodomy, who don’t get a blood transfusion and who don’t swap needles are virtually assured of not getting AIDS unless they are deliberately infected by a malicious gay.

If any of the newsletter pages reproduced by “Et tu, Mr. Destructo” are inaccurate, there is a simple way for Paul’s campaign to prove it: release the original copies of his newsletters to the public, and let voters decide.
