Expose Ron Paul (or at least his supporters)

There's been little to nothing said in the press about the support GOP candidate Ron Paul gets from 9/11 "Truthers", and outside of the blogs, I've seen absolutely nothing at all about the support he's got from the white supremacist movement. Check out this forum on, an unapologetically white supremacist and anti-Semitic group.

The only members there who don't enthusiastically support Paul are those who complain that he hasn't actually released a statement saying that he's an active member of the KKK.

The media needs to make more of this so that the general public knows exactly what segments of the population are attracted to Ron Paul.

Update: Pimps support Ron Paul, too.

Hi Eric -

Yes, Ron Paul has attracted an eclectic mix of supporters, but they all have one thing in common: They want the federal government to get out of their lives. Go to a Ron Paul event, and you'll see an incredible cross-section of America.

Ron Paul has said many times that people endorse his positions--he doesn't endorse theirs.

As for myself, I'm a 22-year veteran of the US Air Force, a gun owner, a card-carrying member of the ACLU, an atheist, a lover of live theater, and a teacher of English as a Second Language.

Does that necessarily make Ron Paul any of these things?

I guess I'll have to add ACLU members to the list along with 9/11 Truthers and white supremacists.
