The Enemy Of My Friend Is My Enemy
There seems to be the beginnings of a grassroots movement to push the candidacy of Ron Paul for President of the U.S. Ron Paul's web site indicates that in one day he raised $6 Million. He appears to be speaking to the problems that many Americans view as major ones:
“'There is an unprecedented outpouring of grassroots support for Dr. Paul. The message of freedom is powerful and uniting people across America. And, Dr. Paul is the only candidate offering real solutions to the issues Americans care about, with the record to back it up.'” [Read the whole statement here.]
What is of interest to me, and should be of interest to every American, and those who will vote in this upcoming Presidential election, is that if you scroll to the very bottom of its web page, Stormfront, that bills itself as a “white nationalist community,” supports Ron Paul.
“The Stormfront White Nationalist Community is a white nationalist Internet forum. Many organizations describe it as a neo-Nazi organization and accuse it of promoting racism, hate speech, and violence. It has been listed as a hate site, and a number of Internet content filters prevent access to it. In Germany, access to Stormfront is blocked by some ISPs in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
“Stormfront is owned by Don Black, a former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan who was a member of the American Nazi Party in the 1970s.In 1981, Black was arrested as he prepared to board a boat stocked with weapons and ammunition to invade Dominica in what he and his accomplices dubbed Operation Red Dog. Black was sentenced to three years in prison for his role in the attempted invasion. He created the website after receiving his first computer training in prison.”

All LGBT people and allies; all people of good will, should take this endorsement by Stormfront to heart, as there may well be a whole lot more to Ron Paul than most of us know!
As I've written before, when one hates one minority group, it is very rare that they will confine that hate to that one minority group, but usually hate other groups as well. So, if someone is prejudiced against Afro-Americans, for example, there is a good chance that he/she is also prejudiced against Gay people and/or Jews and/or Mexicans and/or immigrants, etc.
When a group like Stormfront supports Ron Paul, it should give all of us pause!
I do believe in the old adage that the enemy of my friend is my enemy!
