Ron Paul website mourns anti-Semitic author

The official website of Ron Paul's 2008 presidential campaign, which since the 2008 election has operated under the name "Campaign for Liberty", has published an illiterate memorial to the anti-Semitic author Eustace Mullins. Read here: Campaign For Liberty — Today we morn the passage of Eustace Mullins.

Eustace Mullins was a great autor (sic) and told the truth about the Federal Reseve (sic), the Constitution, Liberty and American History. A man who had a book burned in Europe, was fired from the Library fof (sic) Congress for ploitical (sic) reasons had to be on the right track. He will be missed.

The Nizkor website says the following about Mullins (read here):

Eustace Mullins is the author of the virulently anti-Jewish book "The Biological Jew" (Faith and Service Books, Stauton, VA, 1968). Mullins, in this lengthy comparison of Jews with biological parasites, wrote:

The Jew has always functioned best as a panderer, a pornographer, a master of prostitution, an enemy of the prevailing sexual standards and prohibitions of the gentile community....

We must remember that there is no Jewish crime per se, since the existence of the Jewish parasite on the host is a crime against nature, because its existence imperils the health and life of the host...

This religious ceremony of drinking the blood of an innocent gentile child is basic to the Jew's entire concept of his existence as a parasite, living off the blood of the host...

The Jews do not want anyone to know what Nazism is. Nazism is simply this--a proposal that the German people rid themselves of the parasitic Jews. The gentile host dared to protest against the continued presence of the parasite, and attempted to throw it off. It was an ineffectual reaction, because it was emotional and

Mullins' writings are a standby on the Klan/neo-Nazi circuit. A recent Sons of Liberty book list included Mullins titles such as "Jewish TV: Sick, Sick, Sick," "The Jewish War Against the Christian World," and "Easter," which the catalog tells us give a "look at the 5,000 years of history in the ongoing war between the Satanic-Jewish forces and their Babylonian religious system and the rest of humanity." (Sons of Liberty Fall 1992 catalog, New Christian Crusade Church)

Nizkor also has this:

According to analyst Chip Berlet of Political Research Associates, Mullins is quite simply, "the most vicious anti-Semite on the face of the planet."

Eustace Clarence Mullins, born in 1923, is the author of a biography of Ezra Pound (a copy exists in the University of Waterloo library). But he is also the author of numerous truly bizarre tracts published by small Christian publishers. Some of these (are) . . . critiques of the banking system. Berlet says, "Mullins masks his anti-Semitism with a critique of the [U. S.] Federal Reserve System."

In a 1952 book, Mullins wrote a book blaming Paul Warburg, Bernard Baruch, and other U. S. Jews for drowning Americans in debt. According to Mullins, The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 put the nation's banking reserves in the hands of the "Jewish International Bankers" for the purpose of carrying out a plan for world dictatorship.

In a 1955 article entitled, "Jews mass poison American children", Mullins claimed that the polio vaccine, invented by Jonas Salk, was a poison because it contains live polio germs. Other books depict Jews as parasites, living off their gentile hosts. In what has to be one of the most bizarre of Mullins' beliefs, it has been reported by L. J. Davis that Mullins has claimed that the phrase "Have a nice day" is a code for Jews to begin killing Christians.

As I wrote here and here, Ron Paul's official websites have a bad habit of publishing anti-Semitic material and refusing to remove it. Paul's supporters have written to me at great length (read here) to defend these hate posts both as an expression of free speech that is outside the control of the Paul campaign website, and as being the sort of material which can easily be found on any candidate's website -- defenses which are very obviously false. One Paul supporter who blogs for the Paul campaign went so far as to write to tell me that it was wrong of me to make this material public -- that I should have sent a private email to the Ron Paul campaign and that they would have been happy to remove the offensive material. In fact, in spite of the fact that the Paul campaign has known about this problem at least since I first wrote about it (most likely longer), they have failed to address it and continue to post this material. On the other hand, since I wrote about it, this blog has received literally hundreds of nuisance comments to my articles on this and related subjects, presumably a campaign of harassment from Ron Paul supporters. (Readers of this blog don't see these spam comments because I moderate comments to prevent offensive and/or nuisance material from being posted.)

If they truly want to help their candidate, wouldn't these Ron Paul supporters do better to push the editors of the Ron Paul campaign websites to remove the anti-Semitic material they continue to post year after year, rather than to harass those who write about the issue? Let's see what happens as a result of this post. Will the Ron Paul Campaign for Liberty remove the offensive memorial to Mullins or will Ron Paul supporters inundate this post with spam?

UPDATE: In recent years, Mullins claimed both that he had inspired Ron Paul's anti-Federal Reserve activism, and that Paul and the John Birch Society were "using my book (i.e. Secrets of the Federal Reserve) to keep the Rothchilds in power." (Read here or listen here or here starting at about 77:30 of the podcast.) As might be imagined, his rationale for believing in this convoluted conpiracy was a bit arcane. Listen for yourself.

There was something similar on the Daily Paul on 2-3.

I have found a theological connection between these so-called "gnostics" and today's anti-Judaism/anti-Semitism. Not surprising, that they use a "" crank youtube to bolster their Mullins hagiography.

Ron Paul is insane. He should be put in a pit and locked up with Manson.
