In Memory: Paul Henreid

Today is Thursday, 10 January 2008.

Before the blog, there was begat the far-right-wing newsletter.

We're still under the weather here at MoB (I forgot to mention that our cocker spaniel, Ms. Emma Goldman, who, like her namesake, and is dog aged converted to human age 64, persists in acting like a puppy, has bruised a ligament in her right hind leg, and is thus enduring confinement to limited motion and a course of anti-inflammatory meds).

So, herewith, through the good offices of The New Republic and Mr. James Kirchuck:

Paste this puppy into your browser and find out the ugly truth about Ron Paul, merchant of hate.

Like many professional white-supremacist-far-right types (who can forget the immortal Dan Smoot?), Mr. Paul, oops, Dr. Paul, as his groupies insist, has for years peddled hate through a series of newsletters.

Mr., oops, Dr., Ron thinks he's clever: while his bigotry is published under his banner, most articles, even when written in the first person, are unbylined, thus giving him "plausible deniability".

As in, and quoting from the article:

"Take, for instance, a special issue of the Ron Paul Political Report, published in June 1992, dedicated to explaining the Los Angeles riots of that year. "Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks three days after rioting began," read one typical passage."

Well, enough of the vile Paul.

Today is the birthday in 1908 of the great actor, Paul Henreid.

You know there may not be a more stirring capture of La Marseillaise
than this...

Re The Ron Paul "Revolution" - what a creepy cult. May they slither back under their many rocks ASAP.
Can't we just sprinkle salt on them or sumthin'?
