Very exhaustive, very detailed. Completely debunks all racist claims. Spread the word. This needs to go viral!

Ever since losing their happy home within the Democratic Party via the Civil Rights Movement, white supremacist and racist movements have been trying to sneak into any political movement possible where they hoped they could once again control the agenda on race relations. They tried to insert themselves into the Republican Party, but haven't had any real success in forwarding their agenda. When the Tea Party came along, they tried to hijack that movement but failed. It should come as no surprise that -- in light of the fact that Ron Paul was beginning to get some attention -- the racist elements wanted to hijack his own movement and the Libertarian Party.

They've always been pathetic, but their apparent desperation to try to sneak their agenda into the "official party line" of any new political movement that comes along ... it really is disgraceful.

Then why did he walk out if he could explain it away?

If I were to ask you something that a friend said you said for 20 years, every single time I saw you, for 20 years you have answered the "charges", but I continue to ask you for 20 years to explain yourself, you wouldn't get a little irritated?

It was well covered in the 2008 election. Why is this suddenly such a hot news story now? Several reasons, I think:

a) many in the media are not very well versed in policy issues, especially economics, so they turn to these 'drama' debates to fill the 24/7 cycle.
b) obviously with Paul doing well in polling right now, this is a political smear tactic to try to knock him down. Actually it would be a good idea to keep track now of who is participating in the smear. I have no idea who the main players are, but I suspect most of it comes from the left. Especially if any from the R field join in, it should be noted for future reference.
