Ron Paul, our Internet president, seems to have Nazi troubles, as in they’re saying he’s one of them.

Stormfront, a “white nationalist” Internet community, has given him money. And he can’t seem to stop meeting with self-described neo-Nazis, according to Bill White, the Commander of the American National Socialist Workers’ Party.

White’s allegation:

Both Congressman Paul and his aides regularly meet with members of the Stormfront set, American Renaissance, the Institute for Historic Review and others at the Tara Thai restaurant in Arlington, Va., usually on Wednesdays. This is part of a dinner that was originally organized by Pat Buchanan, Sam Francis and Joe Sobran, and has since been mostly taken over by the Council of Conservative Citizens.

Thing is it’s already been refuted. Justin Raimondo over at AntiWar.com has an entire article Ron Paul vs. the Dirty Tricksters which addresses this and more.

To begin with, who the heck is Bill White? Here’s what the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith has to say about him: “Along with his media savvy,” they aver, “White is known for spreading propaganda and lies about his perceived enemies.” Go here for his extensive criminal record. White started his career as a dingbat of renown with the founding of the Utopian Anarchist Party when he was just a lad. The UAP’s 15 minutes of fame occurred after the Columbine High School shootings, when White or one of his wacked-out confreres issued a statement praising the shooters.

Secondly, the man who organized the dinner meetings “Commander” White refers to, Peter Gemma, has this to say:

“I ran those dinners – Ron Paul was never there… If Bill White ever came to the meetings, he didn’t use his real name – he doesn’t even get the name of the restaurant correctly.”

Both the NYT blog post and the AntiWar.com post were released today but at what time for Justin’s is unknown. I’m not going to claim that Ms. Heffernan should have known this but the post Justin refers to is from the 21st. It’s sad to see all these attacks. They have been long refuted and with videos like this (which is what Ms. Heffernan links to) as an attack medium… it’s silly.

I’ve noticed the daily number of attack pieces has risen quite a bit since the Tea Party money bomb. I believe they are even more scared now. If Paul really was such a ‘crackpot’ and hadn’t a chance then why waste breath and web space on him? I don’t see this kind of hubbub about Gravel.
