Ron Paul and Stormfront - Part III
Posted by: McQ on Monday, October 29, 2007

And if you don't do something they keep piling on:
It depends on the pain threshold in your press shop. Paul is famously non-image-conscious. This is in some ways admirable, but it could prove harmful if he doesn't do something about neo-Nazi leader Don Black's $500 contribution (a spokesman said that was just noticed on Saturday — to their credit, because of the bloggers). No one thinks Ron Paul is a Nazi, but any association there is the most toxic kind of association possible.
No kidding? And, of course, as mentioned, this all could have been easily avoided.

Again we're talking presidential politics, and in that arena, you don't let anything just lay there. Because it is almost a law of the political universe - someone will find it and use it against you.

I actually think Paul is pretty immune to having this hurt his candidacy. He’s not going to win anyway, and he can better say "that’s the problem with American politics today, people want to focus on this kind of meaningless drivel instead of what a candidate says and believes." I think he could turn this into a benefit in a debate, "this is the kind of politics that I uniquely stand against, efforts to smear based on innuendo rather than discussion of the issues. My opponents should be ashamed of themselves for trying to use this as a personal attack, it shows they are bereft of ideas."

Paul should pull a page out of the Rush Limbaugh playbook and publicly give the white supremecist donations to the NAACP.

This is percolating up, but slowly. I still say he’s getting a pass from the MSM on this.

Except, that silence? It most of the news organizations pretending Paul doesn’t exist anymore. They’re playing it cool for a while so everyone forgets.

Forgets how much free publicity (and praise) he got for being ’different’ from the other Republicans. For speaking Truth to Power. And for putting much of the liberal establishment in a near orgasmic state when he said ’blowback’.

Once everyone’s sufficiently forgotten who gave him his burst of fame, they’ll spin him as a typical republican, all of whom are closet neo-nazis of course.
