Fox Ignores Ron Paul Coming In Close Third In Iowa. Declares Race To Be Only “Two Way”

Author: January 3, 2012 9:13 pm

Anyone who has read a single word I’ve written about Ron Paul will know, without a shred of doubt, I am not a fan of Ron Paul. At all. That being said, WOW! Fox REALLY doesn’t like him! It’s almost a pathological hatred.

I already knew Fox was not enamored of Ron Paul but tonight clinches it beyond any doubt. With over 90% of the votes in from the Iowa caucus, Ron Paul trails both Romney and Santorum (tied at 25%) with a very respectable 21%. This is close enough that any objective read of the results would be that it is a competitive three way race.

But we are talking about Fox. Ron Paul just gave a short speech urging his followers to keep fighting on to New Hampshire. MSNBC showed it. CNN showed it. Fox? They had an empty podium on screen while they waited for Newt Gingrich to come out. Newt came in a distant fourth with only 13% of the vote but, for some bizarre reason, he was more important than Dr. Paul.

I’m actually defending Ron Paul and agreeing with his supporters that Fox News is treating him like dirt under their fingernails. For that reason alone, I will hate Fox until the day I die.

I’m going to cry myself to sleep now.

What am I? Chopped liver?

    More on Ron Paul’s racist supporters and Paul’s own racist background.

    Bill White is a neo-Nazi who is a former member of of the neo-Nazi group the National Socialist Movement and founder of his own Nazi group, the National Socialist Worker’s Movement. He has called for the lynching of the Jena 6 and the assassination of NAACP leaders. White previously campaigned for Pat Buchanan and the Reform party. This year, White was convicted of threatening a juror but then freed by a judge who called the threats free speech. White is a former Ron Paul supporter who became disenfranchised with Paul, when a Paul spokesman called white supremacy “a small ideology.” Here is what White wrote about Paul on a popular white supremacist website:

    I have kept quiet about the Ron Paul campaign for a while, because I didn’t see any need to say anything that would cause any trouble. However, reading the latest release from his campaign spokesman, I am compelled to tell the truth about Ron Paul’s extensive involvement in white nationalism.
    Both Congressman Paul and his aides regularly meet with members of the Stormfront set, American Renaissance, the Institute for Historic Review, and others at the Tara Thai restaurant in Arlington, Virginia, usually on Wednesdays. This is part of a dinner that was originally organized by Pat Buchanan, Sam Francis and Joe Sobran, and has since been mostly taken over by the Council of Conservative Citizens.
    I have attended these dinners, seen Paul and his aides there, and been invited to his offices in Washington to discuss policy.
    For his spokesman to call white racialism a “small ideology” and claim white activists are “wasting their money” trying to influence Paul is ridiculous. 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.
    I don’t know that it is necessarily good for Paul to “expose” this. However, he really is someone with extensive ties to white nationalism and for him to deny that in the belief he will be more respectable by denying it is outrageous – and I hate seeing people in the press who denounce racialism merely because they think it is not fashionable

    Paul supporters must know that one of Ron Paul’s objectives, should he take control of the government administration (and should Republicans take control of both houses of Congress) is the repeal of the Civil Rights Act. Paul is on record also saying that the Civil War could have been averted by NOT outlawing slavery but by the US government purchasing the slaves from their owners, threby buying their freedom. Sound sweet, eh? Counters his belief in keeping the taxpayers dollars out of bailouts – but ignores the fact that the US taxpayers would be enriching the slave owners and they would just go out and buy more slaves with the money – since there’d be no laws outlawing the owning of another human being. Something Paul doesn’t seem to be bothered with – at least in his political theories. Here’s more re: David Duke, the KKK and Ron Paul’s background:

    “What Frum may be missing is the fact that the removal of the Civil Rights laws and protections would be a gods-send for those who are like Duke and Black. It would give them an easier time to propagate and push their hateful rhetoric and practices without fear of consequences.”

    David Duke was eventually countered by Black about the fact that he does not consider Ron Paul to be “currently” a White ‘nationalist’, but Duke responded by saying:

    Again, I go back to that, you know, traditional topic that I always talk about, you know, the powers of international Zionism–a power in banking, a power in media, a power in government influence, in campaign finance–a power that’s, you know, hurting the values of this country on behalf of Israel,” Mr. Duke said. “So, I would vote for Ron Paul at this moment because he’s one of the few candidates who have policies in this regard and this realm that I wholeheartedly support, and that’s why I’d vote for him.”
    Frum responded to this entire exchange by saying:

    A politician isn’t answerable for the antics of every one of his supporters. But there’s surely a reason, isn’t there, that racists, anti-Semites, 9/11 Truthers, and Holocaust deniers are so strongly attracted to the Paul campaign. They hear something. They continue to hear it too, no matter how firmly Ron Paul’s more mainstream supporters clamp their hands over their own ears.

    For more information: Supporters of Dr. Paul have these fellows to sit with:

    “Ron Paul was a hot topic this week on the talk radio show hosted by prominent white supremacist Don Black and his son Derek. Mr. Black said he received Mr. Paul’s controversial newsletters when they were first published about two decades ago and described how the publications were perceived by members of the white supremacist movement. Former KKK Grand Wizard and Louisiana Congressman David Duke also phoned in to explain why he’s voting for Mr. Paul.
    “Everybody, all of us back in the 80?s and 90?s, felt Ron Paul was, you know, unusual in that he had actually been a Congressman, that he was one of us and now, of course, that he has this broad demographic–broad base of support,” Mr. Black said on his broadcast yesterday.
    Mr. Black is a former Klansman and member of the American Nazi Party who founded the “white nationalist” website Stormfront in 1995. He donated to Mr. Paul in 2007 and has beenphotographed with the candidate. Mr. Paul has vocal supporters in Stormfront’s online forum.”
