Quote# 85779

Ron Paul has made no secret the fact that he thought that the South was right in the Civil War. Here he is giving a speech in front of a giant Confederate Flag about why he believes the North was wrong in the Civil War and why the South was right.

Ron Paul is a neo-Confederate, and proud member of the Ludwig Von Mises Institute, which has been labeled as a neo-Confederate organization. In the video he claims that the North should have paid to buy slaves from southern slave owners to avoid the war, rather than the South renouncing slavery. Paul also fails to bring up the fact that it was the South that started the war by attacking the North in 1861.

Ron Paul was also was the only member of congress to vote against honoring the Civil Rights Act Of 1964 in on its 40th anniversary in 2004. Paul would also claim that he wouldn’t have voted for it at the time, putting him on the side of the racists in both the fight against slavery and the fight against Jim Crow segregation, the two defining struggles of Black people in America.

Several Ron Paul supporters have asked that the video be taken down, from the pro-Confederate channel, Patriot Review but Patriot Review believes that the video could help Paul win South Carolina.

If anyone's interested, we're having pretty much this exact same discussion at the Slacktivist blog:


Come on by and gawk at the Paultards with us, won't you?

The Civil War was purely a matter of Good North vs. Evil South. All of the Northerners were noble freedom-loving egalitarians who hated slavery and only ever viewed black people as equals whose differences are only skin-deep. Especially Lincoln, who was totally NOT a racist. Nope, honest.

His abolition of slavery was purely because he realized that enslaving another human being is wrong. No ulterior motives at all. Whoever quoted him as saying "I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, or to intermarry with white people, and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the two races which I believe will forever forbid the two from living together on terms of social and political equality" was a stupid lying southern redneck.

I'm also a pathological liar.

Lincoln and the northerners may not be very tolerant by today's standards, but they were still a thousands times better than any gentleman who forces others and their offspring to work their lands for not even a sub-standard wage and could sell off entire families and tear them apart.

You are so freaking bass ackwards it ain't even funny. Sure, the North was goddamn racist back then, by today's standards. But the South was so beyond the fucking pale that even THEY thought it was evil.

What the hell was your point supposed to be, anyway? "The North was racist!" Yeah? So fucking what? Does that make the South suddenly NOT racist and evil, just because?

So the south was right, because the north was racist. Good fucking lord. Let's remember the point we're arguing over here: the quote above says, "Ron Paul has made no secret the fact that he thought that the South was right in the Civil War.... he is giving a speech in front of a giant Confederate Flag about why he believes the North was wrong in the Civil War and why the South was right." And then there's the whole voted-against-civil rights thing. Face it: the North was racist back then, but they got over it. The South was unspeakably evil, but clearly parts of it STILL haven't grown the fuck up.

After reading that bit about the Von misses institute, they seem to be yearning for the days of European feudalism
