    NAACP President: Ron Paul Is Not A Racist
    Linder says Paul being smeared because he is a threat to the establishment

    Austin NAACP President Nelson Linder, who has known Ron Paul for 20 years, unequivocally dismissed charges that the Congressman was a racist in light of recent smear attempts, and said the reason for him being attacked was that he was a threat to the establishment.

    Linder joined Alex Jones for two segments on his KLBJ Sunday show this evening, during which he commented on the controversy created by media hit pieces that attempted to tarnish Paul as a racist by making him culpable for decades old newsletter articles written by other people.

    "Knowing Ron Paul's intent, I think he is trying to improve this country but I think also, when you talk about the Constitution and you constantly criticize the federal government versus state I think a lot of folks are going to misconstrue that....so I think it's very easy for folks who want to to take his position out of context and that's what I'm hearing," said Linder.



    "Knowing Ron Paul and having talked to him, I think he's a very fair guy I just think that a lot of folks do not understand the Libertarian platform," he added.

    Asked directly if Ron Paul was a racist, Linder responded "No I don't," adding that he had heard Ron Paul speak out about police repression of black communities and mandatory minimum sentences on many occasions.

    Dr. Paul has also publicly praised Martin Luther King as his hero on many occasions spanning back 20 years.

    "I've read Ron Paul's whole philosophy, I also understand what he's saying from a political standpoint and why people are attacking him," said Linder.

    "If you scare the folks that have the money, they're going to attack you and they're going to take it out of context," he added.

    "What he's saying is really really threatening the powers that be and that's what they fear," concluded the NAACP President.

    "If you scare the folks that have the money, they're going to attack you and they're going to take it out of context," he added. Just who said that?

    No one said Paul's a racist. It's the company he keeps and the results of the policies he supports that are the problems.

    No one said Ron Paul's a racist? LOL!!

    What a blatant lie jillian. Everytime Kathianne posts about RP, it's a link about his supposed racist ties. And you're always right there behind her to help back her up with your matching opinion.

    We don't actually have to go dig posts up, do we? The whole 15 some odd page thread titled "Ron Paul" that Kathianne created, for starters? I mean, I think at this point, anyone who's been following the RP discussions here is well aware.
