The Confederacy, Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul, Hillary and Bill Clinton - Old Southern Racial Politics

AAPP says: Hillary and Bill Clinton's offensive remarks regarding Barack Obama has caused this pundit and many other political bloggers to take a closer look at other Presidential candidates views on color arousal or better known as race issues. International civil and human rights activist, and internet activist Francis L. Holland has uncovered an article regarding Ron Paul and what I would term, Ron Paul's racist and bigoted thoughts regarding black People.

Ron Paul is not the only candidate harboring racial hatred, Thomas B. Edsall, political editor of the Huffington Post and Joseph Pulitzer II and Edith Pulitzer Moore Professor at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.(H/T Agent X for the link) has also uncovered some ugly truths about former Gov. Mike Huckabee. First let's take a look at some of Presidential Candidate Ron Paul's thoughts about you know what:

Race

"A Special Issue on Racial Terrorism" analyzes the Los Angeles riots of 1992: "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."

The November 1990 issue of the Political Report had kind words for David Duke.

This newsletter describes Martin Luther King Jr. as "a world-class adulterer" who "seduced underage girls and boys" and "replaced the evil of forced segregation with the evil of forced integration."

Paul reported on gang crime in Los Angeles and commented, “If you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be.”

“Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. laughingly calls the 'criminal justice system,’ I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal,” Paul said.

Paul also wrote that although “we are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational. Black men commit murders, rapes, robberies, muggings and burglaries all out of proportion to their numbers.”



Now regarding Gov. Mike Huckabee and his campaign to bring the confederate flag into the Presidential campaign. As Posted by Thomas B. Edsall at the Huffington Post

Columbia, S. Car. -- The populist campaign of Mike Huckabee, seeking to mobilize an insurgency of white evangelicals against the Republican establishment, took an abrupt turn today after the former Arkansas governor directly appealed to voters on the issue of race, summoning his fellow candidates to stop calling for the removal of the Confederate flag from government offices.

"You don't like people from outside the state coming in and telling you what to do with your flag. ... If somebody came to Arkansas and told us what to do with our flag, we'd tell them what to do with the pole. That's what we'd do," he declared to applause at a campaign rally in Myrtle Beach Thursday.

AAPP: It's really a disgrace that we have to learn that politicians like the Clinton's, Ron Paul and Huckabee have all of these racial demons within them. Ron Paul '90s newsletters rants against blacks and gays are well documented. As reported by CNN, there's 20 years, give or take, worth of newsletters there. Paul said the editor of publications "is responsible for daily activities." But he also cited "transition" and "changes" and said that some people were hired to write stories "but I didn't know their names."

AAPP: Whatever Ron Paul! we get it. "Ron Paul Don't Like Black People."

Gov. Huckabee, you will never get this Pundit's vote. I don't vote for Confederate flag waving ex Gov's of Arkansas. But then again, maybe I did. I voted for Bill Clinton twice. Maybe that is the difference between you and Bill Clinton, he's a closet confederate flag waver, you just come out and say what your about. But hey, My vote may not count anyway. It seems that Republicans and Democrats know how to steal elections.
