Prominent Ron Paul website promotes Farrakhan anti-Jewish speech

The Daily Paul, one of the most popular internet forums for supporters of Ron Paul, has published links to YouTube videos of Louis Farrakhan denouncing Jewish political power and expressing support for Muammar Qaddafi. (Read here: Farrakhan on Obama and Libya:"Zionists [bad Isrealis] dominate the government of the USA...." | Ron Paul 2012 | Sound Money, Peace and Liberty)

Judging by the comments for the post, it would seem that a nexus of support for Ron Paul and Louis Farrakhan has coalesced around conspiracy theories concerning Jewish political power and banks.  Among other artifacts of extremism found in the discussion attached to the post is a link to an article in the Nation of Islam's official newspaper, The Final Call, spinning a conspiracy theory blaming the popular uprising against Qaddafi not on an expression of Arab Spring revolutionary spirit, but (predictably) on a conspiracy of bankers upset about Qaddafi's monetary policies.  (Read here.)  The Final Call article fails to mention the Qaddafi regime's long history of violently suppressing political opposition -- suppression which rose to unprecedented levels of brutality in response to demonstrations in support of liberalizing Libya's political system.  Rather than citing revulsion at Qaddafi's massacre of peaceful Arab Spring demonstrators as the cause of the NATO intervention, the Final Call quotes Farrakhan as saying:

“I know why you are angry with him; because he never agreed with your policies when it came to sucking the resources of Third World peoples, and putting in place dictators that would be amenable to America's policies.”

It has long been known that some Ron Paul supporters share with Farrakhan a strong opposition to the central banking system, support for isolationist foreign policy, and a conspiratorial view of Israel and Jews which verges on paranoia.  Now we can add support for Muammar Qaddafi to that list.  Makes sense.

Below is the string of comments submitted by the Daily Paul forum members in response to the Farrakhan videos.  It is interesting to see them working out how to talk about these issues without sounding bigoted -- that whole "we're opposed to Zionists, not Jews" thing.  Only they get it a bit wrong.  One commenter seems to think the founder of Goldman Sachs is still alive as he argues that Goldman Sachs ins't bad because it's Jewish. "I don't consider Goldman a Jew I see him as being of Israeli descent big difference."  Another argues that his support for Naturei Karta  shows that he can't be an anti-Semite.

The main point of Farrakhan's speech, that international bankers and Zionists work together to control the world and punish those who resist that control, and that the Libya conflict results from that conspiracy, meets with broad approval among at least this group of Paul supporters.  I wonder what Ron Paul would say about it?

Well, I did not watch it

Well, I did not watch it because putting labels on a race or religion just sucks. Radical Islam extremists, Zionist hate, etc. etc. Crooks and criminals have no religion. They worship power and money. As such, they should be called THAT. Jewish people are not raised to evilly control the world.

how can you be so sure? this

how can you be so sure? this is not about race or religion its about the truth ugly or pretty whatever it may be truth is truth lies are lies averything else is beside the point, labels are needed to identify people or else you get a broad term like "terrorisst" when you can never know who is your enemy. therefore you have to be suspect with evryone, these people exist they are in power and they obviously have an agenda. whether you like it or not.

i am not muslim and i dont

i am not muslim and i dont hate jews, check this video out if ou think its only muslims speaking this type of rhetoric. rabbi weiss orthox jew, ill be here all week dropping truth bombs.

Here is another angel on the Libya fiasco.

Here is another angel on the Libya fiasco. Would the Bankers that be be upset if Libya would only take payment in gold for their oil?? I think maybe so.
There are many stories about this on the web.

This is a powerful speech

And full of facts.

Farrakhan starts at 13 minutes.
“I have joined your revolution and I’m proud to be part of what you want to do.” - Ron Paul


....that should point to the correctness of Dr. Ron Paul.

That blew me back not what I

That blew me back not what I expected from Mr. Farrakhan. I don't consider Goldman a Jew I see him as being of Israeli descent big difference. I don't see any of our bankers as religious, but thats me I'm here to learn what I can.

This is the first time I heard Farrakan speak. And I am . . .

* He acknowledges that Obm freed blacks' mind by showing that they can excel in more than just sports and music, but also become one of the world rulers.
But Farrakan characterizes Obm's presidency as being only a CEO of corporate USA and not representing common people who need jobs, justice, freedom from tax or regulatory tricks that caused many to lose homes. "Obm is a frog in Dragon's mouth", doing Goldman S's bidding.
* Frrkn wants USA out of Iraq & Afghanistan.
* He wants CIA, with missions to destabilize the host countries, to be out of foreign countries.
* He wants Libyans to solve their problems among themselves and NOT let zionists push Obm to invade and kill Ghadaffi.
* Frrkn thinks that there is a possibility that Obm, like FDR, may issue an Exec order to have Frrkn arrested for sedition & treason, but he is ready for it. Because in the end Frrkan knows that he will be the winner.
YUP, xxeaglesg, Frrkn has a lot in common with Ron P. Many thanks for posting: really I wouldn't have come across these youtubes, if it wasn't for you. You expanded my horizon :-)

I'm an old white guy...

and over the years I've heard about Faarakhan ,but never heard more than a few sound bites. My MSM formed impression was that he was one of those racist radicals.
Well I guess he is a "RADICAL"...Just like Ron Paul!
It was another DP'er on here that posted a link and led me to these Faarakhan Youtubes.
Long live Free Speech!

if this is the first time you

if this is the first time you heard him speak dont get used to him. he is an evil evil SOB.
-Not pretty if you don't comply, pretty easy if you don't complain-

The main point about Israel

The main point about Israel is to differentiate between the Zionists and the Israelis.

I agree!

And that is an important point to remember when talking to supporters of Isreal about Ron Paul. Because many of them will dis Ron Paul because he wants Isreal to tend to her own business.
