Upstart Republican presidential hopefulÃ‚Â Ron PaulÃ‚Â received a $500 donation from a white supremecist and Paul has no intention on returning it.Ã‚Â Don Black who runs the racist website called StormfrontÃ‚Â recently made the donation to Paul according to campaign filings.
According to Black, “We like his stand on tight borders”.Ã‚Â Black also cited Paul’s opposition to amnesty for illegal immigrants as well.Ã‚Â It is these positions that have made Paul one of the favorites among the immigrant bashing crowd along with Tom Tancredo.
Black, whose groups motto is “White Pride World Wide”, describes himself as a “White patriot” and said, “On the issues, there’s only one choice”.Ã‚Â Clearly for Black and his fellow racists that choice is Ron Paul.
Paul’s campaign has been seen by most folks as a grassroots populist movement.Ã‚Â However Black’s support shines a bright light onto the type of folks that Paul’s message actually appeals to.Ã‚Â Much has been made about his fundraising and his stance on the Iraq war, but his immigration policies have largely been ignored by the mainstream media.Ã‚Â
Black’s support for Paul now means that 3 Republican campaigns have accepted support from anti-immigrant race baiters.Ã‚Â Last week Jim Gilchrist endorsed Mike Huckabee and Tom Tancredo is surrounded by immigrant bashers.
It looks like Black and Paul share many of the same beliefs as some of those in the group of folks opposing Measure D.Ã‚Â Perhaps they should hit up Black for a donation as well.Ã‚Â I am sure that their campaign could use the funds.Ã‚Â Just let the “usual suspects” make the pitch and I am sure Black would be more than happy to write the check.
