The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

NY Times can’t find extremists, unless they want to

I am not a Ron Paul fan. His foreign policy views are naive and dangerous, and are disqualifying in their own right. Nonetheless, the NY Times decided to rip into Paul for the support he gets from radical racial groups.

The American Free Press, which markets books like “The Invention of the Jewish People” and “March of the Titans: A History of the White Race,” is urging its subscribers to help it send hundreds of copies ofRon Paul’s collected speeches to voters in New Hampshire. The book, it promises, will “Help Dr. Ron Paul Win the G.O.P. Nomination in 2012!”

Don Black, director of the white nationalist Web site Stormfront, said in an interview that several dozen of his members were volunteering for Mr. Paul’s presidential campaign, and a site forum titled “Why is Ron Paul such a favorite here?” has no fewer than 24 pages of comments. “I understand he wins many fans because his monetary policy would hurt Jews,” read one.

Far-right groups like the Militia of Montana say they are rooting for Mr. Paul as a stalwart against government tyranny.

It’s the dangedest thing. The Times is able to find radical support for Paul and use that to undermine the candidate, but were somehow unable to find support from Nazis, Communists, Maoists, socialists and racists for their own beloved Occupy Wall Street movement.

Funny how that works, huh?
