I hope you're sitting down when you read this. Bill White, the leader of the neo-Nazi group American National Socialist Workers Party, has written on a white supremacist bulletin board that Ron Paul is secretly one of them but he has to keep that quiet to maintain his political viability. Full text of what he said below the fold:
I have kept quiet about the Ron Paul campaign for a while, because I didn't see any need to say anything that would cause any trouble. However, reading the latest release from his campaign spokesman, I am compelled to tell the truth about Ron Paul's extensive involvement in white nationalism.
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, Virginia, 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.
I have attended these dinners, seen Paul and his aides there, and been invited to his offices in Washington to discuss policy.
For his spokesman to call white racialism a "small ideology" and claim white activists are "wasting their money" trying to influence Paul is ridiculous. Paul is a white nationalist of the Stormfront type who has always kept his racial views and his views about world Judaism quiet because of his political position.
I don't know that it is necessarily good for Paul to "expose" this. However, he really is someone with extensive ties to white nationalism and for him to deny that in the belief he will be more respectable by denying it is outrageous -- and I hate seeing people in the press who denounce racialism merely because they think it is not fashionable.

White seems to be a controversial figure with the other racist nutjobs at the Vanguard site. Some condemned him for spilling the beans and therefore hurting Ron Paul's campaign. Others implied that White is really a marxist mole in the group. In a follow up post, White said:
As to why post it --
I post it because it annoys me to see politicians and their spokesmen deny racism.
Racism is okay. Racism is popular. Being racist doesn't hurt you except when you hem and haw Pat Buchanan style and try to hide it. So, let Ron Paul come clean and embrace his love for white people. Is that so bad? Will it cost him the election? Hardly.
Personally, I don't think Paul is 100% "racist". He's certainly not racist in the sense I'm racist, and doesn't think of Jews in the way I think of Jews, but he is someone aware of the race question and the Jewish problem. Differences? I believe that Jews and non-whites should, at the least, be deported from the country, and that whites who adhere to Jewish philosophies should be placed in camps and re-educated. Ron Paul would find that abhorrent, because he believes in the Constitution and rights and human equality and all that sort of nonsense.
Plus, I don't think its much of a secret he associates regularly with a large number of white activists. I mean, he goes to dinners where there are dozens of white activists in attendance, so you figure he can't exactly keep the lid on it forever. I won't name all of them here unless I have to, but his involvement in "soft" white activism -- Stormfront, American Renaissance, etc -- is well known.
This could get very interesting.
