NAACP President: Ron Paul Is No Racist

Prison Planet reports, in a 2008 article:

Austin NAACP President Nelson Linder, who has known Ron Paul for 20 years, unequivocally dismissed charges that the Congressman was a racist in light of recent smear attempts, and said the reason for him being attacked was that he was a threat to the establishment.

Linder joined Alex Jones for two segments on his KLBJ Sunday show this evening, during which he commented on the controversy created by media hit pieces that attempted to tarnish Paul as a racist by making him culpable for decades old newsletter articles written by other people.

“Knowing Ron Paul’s intent, I think he is trying to improve this country but I think also, when you talk about the Constitution and you constantly criticize the federal government versus state I think a lot of folks are going to misconstrue that….so I think it’s very easy for folks who want to to take his position out of context and that’s what I’m hearing,” said Linder.

“Knowing Ron Paul and having talked to him, I think he’s a very fair guy I just think that a lot of folks do not understand the Libertarian platform,” he added.

Asked directly if Ron Paul was a racist, Linder responded “No I don’t,” adding that he had heard Ron Paul speak out about police repression of black communities and mandatory minimum sentences on many occasions.

  3. The NY Times Editorial yesterday (Dec. 27th, 2011) is VERY revealing. Ron Paul has linked two great truths together:
    1) we borrow from future generations and go deeper into DEBT
    2) to pay for past, present and future WARS.
    His solutions:
    1) audit and then shut down the Fed
    2) bring ALL the troops home and shut down the bases abroad.

    The third great truth will dawn on him dawn on him during 2012:
    i.e. peak oil, peak resources, climate crisis and global storming, ALSO make balanced budget amendment, radicle decentralization, simple economics that every citizen can understand absolutely essential.
    NO Federal income tax needed.
    NO subsidies to nukes, oil and gas companies, ethanol.
    Return to Constitutional government.
