Ad For Ron Paul’s Newsletter Forecast Race War
Reuters reports that an ad used in the mid-90s to advertise Ron Paul’s controversial newsletter contained some pretty incendiary material:
A direct-mail solicitation for Ron Paul’s political and investment newsletters two decades ago warned of a “coming race war in our big cities” and of a “federal-homosexual cover-up” to play down the impact of AIDS.
The eight-page letter, which appears to carry Paul’s signature at the end, also warns that the U.S. government’s redesign of currency to include different colors – a move aimed at thwarting counterfeiters – actually was part of a plot to allow the government to track Americans using the “new money.”
The letter urges readers to subscribe to Paul’s newsletters so that he could “tell you how you can save yourself and your family” from an overbearing government.
The letter’s details emerge at a time when Paul, now a contender for the Republican nomination for president, is under fire over reports that his newsletters contained racist, anti-homosexual and anti-Israel rants.
I’ve embedded the letter below so you can read it in all it’s glory. On the final page, you will see that it is sent out over Ron Paul’s signature.
