2012-02-07 "Ron Paul Linked To Racists?" by ThosPayne
The international group of hacktivists called Anonymous exists to expose suppressed information that it feels should be made available to the public.
Lately, the group has been exposing the Las Zetas Mexican drug cartel by hacking into its computers and outing Zeta's business contracts, addresses, assets, and relationships with corrupt politicians and police.
In a separate crusade against American white supremacist groups Anonymous hacked into and then broke up the web accounts of a Southern California-based white power group known as American Third Position - or "A3P."
A3P is dedicated to mainstreaming white racist rule through its support of political candidates, much like David Duke tried to do back in the '90s.
It while raiding A3P's business and personal archives, Anonymous says, that it discovered documents revealing a surprisingly intimate relationship between A3P and current Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul; not just Ron Paul's campaign people, but Ron Paul himself.
Anonymous published the A3P archive with the following press release:
"Fellow anons: we are pleased to bring you the dismantling of a major US-based white supremacist network known as the “American Third Position”(A3P). These racist losers have chapters across the US, operate several white power websites,forums and online stores, and are even running a candidate in the 2012 elections.
Although they try hard to maintain a professional public image to camouflage their vile racism, we’re now airing all their dirty laundry all over the internet. Contained in this major dump are several thousand private forum messages, personal emails, internal organization notes, names, phone numbers, home addresses and other information on all of their members and supporters...
In addition to finding the usual racist rants and interactions with other white power groups, we also found a disturbingly high amount of members who are involved in campaigning for Ron Paul. According to these messages, Ron Paul has regularly met with many A3P members- even engaging in conference calls with their board of directors.
Ron Paul’s racist politics and affiliations are already well known for being viciously anti-immigrant, anti-abortion and against gay marriage - not to mention having authored the racist “Ron Paul Papers” and receiving financial support from other white power groups. Hard to believe Ron Paul draws some support from the left and the Occupation movements, especially now that it is confirmed Ron Paul hangs out with straight up racist hate groups..."
Anonymous also notes that Ron Paul receives financial support from other white supremacist groups, such as the online hate forum Stormfront (founded by Don Black, Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan and member of the American Nazi Party).
Jamie Kelso owns the white supremacist websites WhiteNewsNow.com and TheWhiteRace.com. According to Kelso:
"Let's appreciate this big (Ron Paul) audience that's overwhelmingly white," Kelso said in an interview with the Southern Poverty Law Center. "This is our audience. This is our public. These are our people. If we can't persuade these people of the rightness of our cause, then we're finished."
An email from Kelso to fellow A3P member "Alexander Hamilton" advises: "Imbar is Ron Paul #2 man in Illinois. Owns his own manufacturing company. Young guy like you. Jeff (Imbar) and I have been buddies for years. We met up with Ron Paul in Ames, Iowa in Aug. 2007." Reiterating his commitment to Ron Paul's presidential campaign, Kelso says A3P members are part of Paul's team. "A couple of my buddies are among those dozen. 'Knucklehead' is my buddy, and Sr. Mod, named "Imbar" on WhiteNewsNow [a racist website owned by Kelso]. He's also Ron Paul's #2 man in Illinois, Chicago, where is a manufacturer. His name is Jeff".
William White of the National Socialist Movement reportedly revealed that:
"Both Congressman Paul and his aides regularly meet with members of the Stormfront set, American Renaissance, Institute for Historic Review, and others at the Tara Thai restaurant in Arlington, Virginia, usually on Wednesdays. I have attended these dinners, seen Paul and his aides there, and been invited to his offices in Washington to discuss policy." White added, "Paul is a White nationalist of the Stormfront type who has always kept his racial views and his views about world Judaism quiet because of his political position." (see International Business Times, 01-31-2012)
The complete A3P document dump can be accessed at Pirasec.com.
Persistent questions about Ron Paul's alleged racism and his questionable newsletters have been spotlighted by the media while Paul continues to seek the Republican nomination.
Of course, dinner meetings with Nazis and other white supremacists - even accepting their support - doesn't necessarily mean that Ron Paul himself is a racist.
Maybe it's time to find out what Ron Paul, as the potential Republican candidate for US President, honestly believes about racial equality in America.
