Martin Luther King, Jr.
Ron Paul Dodges Racist Newsletter Question, Says Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. One of His Heroes (Wikipedia)

GOP presidential hopeful Ron Paul dodges racist newsletter question during ABC presidential debate, says Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of his heroes and says the civil rights icon practiced Libertarian principles. He made the rounds with all the black civil rights icons. He even invoked Rosa Parks too.

“More importantly, you ought to ask me what my relationship is for racial relationships. And one of my heroes is Martin Luther King because he practiced the libertarian principle of peaceful resistance and peaceful civil disobedience, as did Rosa Parks did,” Ron Paul said.

It’s very ironic that Ron Paul should state Dr. King was one of his heroes because one of those newsletters, published in December 1990, singled out Martin Luther King Jr. as “a world-class adulterer” and even accused the civil rights leader as having “seduced underage girls and boys” and “replaced the evil of forced segregation with the evil of forced integration.”

Here’s an excerpt from Ron Paul’s December 1990 newsletter:

He was also a comsymp, if not an actual party member, and the man who replaced the evil of forced segregation with the evil of forced integration.

King, the FBI files show, was not only a world-class adulterer, he also seduced underage girls and boys. The Re. Ralph David Abernathy revealed before his death that King had made a pass at him many years before.

And we are supposed to honor this “Christian minister” and lying socialist satyr with a holiday that puts him on a par with George Washington?

Congratulations to Arizona! Who could doubt that the result would be exactly the same if the other 49 states could also vote on a holiday for this affirmative-action saint?

Would you say that about your one of your “heroes?” Ron Paul can’t seem to keep his story straight. Um, this isn’t the way to appease the black community. We can see right through your “pious baloney.”
