Nazi-Linked Pied Piper Ron Paul: All Roads Lead to Romney

Ron Paul, Rom­ney Con­fed­er­ate

COMMENT: In the past, we’ve looked at GOP can­di­date Ron Paul’s sup­port from, and active liai­son with, Nazi and white suprema­cist ele­ments. We’ve also looked at his Islam­o­fas­cist sup­port as well. (Paul appears to have been involved in the abortive Domini­ca coup in 1981, dis­cussed in AFA #13.)

To see a GOP pres­i­den­tial can­di­date cozy­ing up with Nazis and white suprema­cists should­n’t come as a sur­prise, giv­en the fact that the par­ty’s eth­nic out­reach orga­ni­za­tion lit­tle more than an exten­sion of the Third Reich.

The Rea­gan GOP was staffed by per­son­nel select­ed by Helene von Damm, a pro­tege of Otto von Bolschwing, Eich­man­n’s supe­ri­or in admin­is­ter­ing the Third Reich’s exter­mi­na­tion of the Jews.

Implic­it in this post are sev­er­al ques­tions:

  • Is Ron Paul an oper­a­tive of the Under­ground Reich? Is that why he main­tains the kinds of con­nec­tions that he fos­ters? Is that why he wrote the things in his newslet­ters that he did?
  • Is “1% er” Mitt Rom­ney an oper­a­tive of the Under­ground Reich?
  • Is Peter Ack­er­man, anoth­er “1% er” and one of the dri­ving forces behind the “Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Spring” of 2011 Under­ground Reich? Is that the rea­son behind his launch­ing of Amer­i­cans Elect? Note in this con­text that Grover Norquist and Karl Rove launched the Islam­ic Free Mar­ket Insti­tute, a par­al­lel net­work to the GOP/Nazi eth­nic out­reach milieu.
  • Will Paul’s young pot­heads be allowed to inhale some weed, just before they inhale some Zyk­lon B?

 

Russ Bel­lan­t’s land­mark text about GOP/Nazi Inter­face

Not the mav­er­ick he por­trays him­self as being, Paul is open­ly allied with GOP fron­trun­ner Mitt Rom­ney, and could serve Rom­ney in a num­ber of ways.

Recent­ly, Paul gar­nered enthu­si­as­tic sup­port dur­ing a tour of col­lege cam­pus­es, tout­ing his oppo­si­tion to the Iraq War, desire to elim­i­nate the Fed­er­al Reserve and sup­port for states rights, among oth­er things.

Claim­ing he might not sup­port his ally Rom­ney if he got the nom­i­na­tion, Paul has float­ed the idea of run­ning as an inde­pen­dent. Should he do that, it is pos­si­ble that he might pull in some of the morons–young morons in particular–who’ve been hood­winked by his Third Posi­tion views.

Ful­fill­ing the role of a right-wing Ralph Nad­er, he could be decisive–for Rom­ney.

In this post, we are going to exam­ine a num­ber of things, includ­ing:

  • Ron Paul’s suc­cess with young and igno­rant vot­ers. Using his oppo­si­tion to wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, desire to cut off U.S. for­eign aid to Israel (which res­onates with the Berkeley/Pacifica Radio con­stituen­cy), sup­port for “states rights” mar­i­jua­na ini­tia­tives and adher­ence to the 9/11 Truther ide­ol­o­gy, Paul has suc­cess­ful­ly played the role of pied piper to the young and inno­cent. His recent suc­cess at U.C. Berke­ley fol­lows on the heels of a stand­ing ova­tion giv­en to Louis Far­rakhan by an audi­ence at the same insti­tu­tion.
  • The curi­ous loca­tion of Ron Paul’s super PAC in Utah, home to the largest Mor­mon pop­u­la­tion in the U.S. (Rom­ney is, of course, a mem­ber of the LDS.)
  • The piv­otal role of ultra right-winger Peter Thiel in the Ron Paul fund-rais­ing effort. Thiel has donat­ed most of the mon­ey that has gone into the Utah-based Ron Paul super PAC. In FTR #718, we looked at Thiel’s links to the Under­ground Reich milieu.
  • The overt polit­i­cal alliance between Paul and Rom­ney, some­thing that should sur­prise no one.
  • We also under­take review of some inter­est­ing con­nec­tions between the Under­ground Reich and the Mor­mon Church.
  • A Ger­man nation­al who has become one of the most impor­tant offi­cials in the Mor­mon faith has overt links to the ver­triebene milieu. Jer­ry Ucht­dor­f’s fam­i­ly are Sude­ten Ger­mans, expelled from Czecho­slo­va­kia and lat­er East Ger­many, expe­ri­ences that appar­ent­ly informed much of Ucht­dor­f’s cur­rent polit­i­cal per­spec­tive.
  • The LDS has giv­en a con­sid­er­able amount of mon­ey to Islam­ic Relief World­wide, a Mus­lim Broth­er­hood front orga­ni­za­tion found­ed by a rel­a­tive of Has­san al-Ban­na him­self. (Al-Ban­na is the founder of the fas­cist Mus­lim Broth­er­hood.) Islam­ic Relief’s U.S. rep­re­sen­ta­tive is Kazbek Soob­zokov, son of SS offi­cer and for­mer U.S. intel­li­gence agent Tscher­im Soob­zokov. Islam­ic Relief has man­i­fest­ed overt Nazi sym­pa­thies and sym­bol­ism, as well as sup­port­ing Hamas and [alleged­ly] Chechen ter­ror­ists.
  • Sup­port for Ron Paul giv­en by Amer­i­cans Elect, an orga­ni­za­tion found­ed by Peter Ack­er­man, for­mer right-hand man to Junk Bond King Michael Milken, finan­cial angel to non­vi­o­lent the­o­reti­cian Gene Sharp and one of the forces behind the “Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Spring” of 2011. Amer­i­cans Elect could lend impe­tus to a Ron Paul Third Par­ty can­di­da­cy which, in turn, might siphon enough anti-war, anti-Israel, “Truther,” pro-weed votes away from Oba­ma to do for Rom­ney what Ralph Nad­er did for George W. Bush in 2000.
  • Rom­ney’s alliance with Israeli Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Netanyahu, him­self an heir to the fas­cist ele­ment with­in the Zion­ist move­ment.

“Ron Paul Says He Won’t Quit Race” by Car­la Mar­in­uc­ci; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 4/6/2012.

EXCERPT: GOP pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Ron Paul, on a three-day cam­paign swing in Cal­i­for­nia that has attract­ed over­flow crowds, said Thurs­day his with­draw­al from the race is “not going to hap­pen” — and he isn’t cer­tain he’ll sup­port Mitt Rom­ney should the for­mer Mass­a­chu­setts gov­er­nor win the par­ty’s nom­i­na­tion. . . .

. . . . Paul also left open the door — at least a crack — to declare him­self an inde­pen­dent pres­i­den­tial can­di­date. Asked if he had ruled it out, Paul said, “I have my hands full right now.” He added: “I’m in the mid­dle of a process and I want to find out how many del­e­gates we have and whether there’s going to be a bro­kered con­ven­tion.”

This week, Paul has attract­ed record crowds of 5,000 to 7,000 peo­ple at Chico State Uni­ver­si­ty and UCLA.

On Thurs­day night, he spoke to thou­sands of peo­ple in Memo­r­i­al Glade in front of UC Berke­ley’s Doe Library. Paul was greet­ed with chants of “Pres­i­dent Paul” and was obvi­ous­ly ener­gized to be in what he called the home of “free speech.”

The chants were atyp­i­cal of those usu­al­ly heard on the cam­pus, includ­ing “End the Fed,” and “U.S.A., U.S.A.”

Paul spoke about cut­ting the fed­er­al bud­get and end­ing wars, but the loud­est cheers came when he railed against the war on drugs.

In a ref­er­ence to the raid this week on Oak­s­ter­dam Uni­ver­si­ty and mar­i­jua­na dis­pen­sary in Oak­land, he said, “If you have states’ rights in Cal­i­for­nia, you would­n’t have the feds bug­ging you and telling you what you could do with your own body.” . . .

COMMENT: Ron Paul’s super PAC is in Rom­ney’s back­yard. (Rom­ney is, of course, a Mormon–the faith that is pre­dom­i­nant in Utah.)

“Utah-Based Super PAC Sup­ports Paul–not Rom­ney” by Matt Can­ham; Salt Lake Tri­bune; 2/20/2012.

EXCERPT: . . . . This isn’t a class project or some kind of prank. It’s the work of Endorse Lib­er­ty, the biggest super PAC sup­port­ing Ron Paul. Found­ed in late Decem­ber and head­quar­tered in Utah, this group of polit­i­cal novices backed by a Sil­i­con Val­ley bil­lion­aire has already spent $3.5 mil­lion push­ing its online ads into ear­ly pri­ma­ry states where they have been viewed 12 mil­lion times.

“It is safe to say Endorse Lib­er­ty is a new force on the scene,” said Michael Beck­el, who tracks super PAC spend­ing for the Cen­ter for Pub­lic Integri­ty.

Super polit­i­cal action com­mit­tees have been around for only two years, cre­at­ed in the after­math of a Supreme Court rul­ing that allowed cor­po­ra­tions, unions and indi­vid­u­als to give as much mon­ey as they want to groups act­ing inde­pen­dent­ly of the can­di­dates. . . .

COMMENT: The bulk of the financ­ing for Paul’s super PAC comes from Sil­i­con Val­ley mover-and-shak­er Peter Thiel. An ultra-right winger with a back­ground sug­ges­tive of pos­si­ble Under­ground Reich con­nec­tions, Thiel has opined that “Free­dom and Democ­ra­cy are incom­pat­i­ble.”

“Pay­Pal co-Founder Peter Thiel Donates Mil­lions to Ron Paul Super PAC” by Charles Riley; money.cnn.com ; 2/20/2012.

EXCERPT: Sil­i­con Val­ley renais­sance man Peter Thiel donat­ed anoth­er $1.7 mil­lion in Jan­u­ary to a super PAC that backs Ron Paul, accord­ing to dis­clo­sure doc­u­ments filed Mon­day.

The Pay­Pal co-founder donat­ed $1 mil­lion on Jan­u­ary 3, and fol­lowed that up 10 days lat­er with an addi­tion­al $700,000 gift.

. . . Thiel’s $2.6 mil­lion in total dona­tions account for 76% of the super PAC’s fundrais­ing since it came online late last year, under­scor­ing the abil­i­ty of deep-pock­et­ed donors to have a major impact on cam­paign spend­ing. . . .

COMMENT: It should sur­prise no one that Rom­ney and Paul are strate­gic polit­i­cal allies.

“For Paul and Rom­ney, a Strate­gic Alliance between Estab­lish­ment and Out­sider” by Amy Gard­ner; Wash­ing­ton Post; 2/1/2012.

EXCERPT: . . . Despite deep dif­fer­ences on a range of issues, Rom­ney and Paul became friends in 2008, the last time both ran for pres­i­dent. So did their wives, Ann Rom­ney and Car­ol Paul. The for­mer Mass­a­chu­setts gov­er­nor com­pli­ments the Texas con­gress­man dur­ing debates, prais­ing Paul’s reli­gious faith dur­ing the last one, in Jack­sonville, Fla. Imme­di­ate­ly after­ward, as is often the case, the Pauls and the Rom­neys grav­i­tat­ed toward one anoth­er to say hel­lo.

The Rom­ney-Paul alliance is more than a curi­ous con­nec­tion. It is a strate­gic part­ner­ship: for Paul, an oppor­tu­ni­ty to gain a seat at the table if his long-shot bid for the pres­i­den­cy fails; for Rom­ney, a chance to gain sup­port from one of the most vibrant sub­groups with­in the Repub­li­can Par­ty.

“It would be very fool­ish for any­body in the Repub­li­can Par­ty to dis­miss a very real con­stituen­cy,” said one senior GOP aide in Wash­ing­ton who is famil­iar with both camps. “Ron Paul plays a very valu­able part in the process and brings a lot of vot­ers toward the Repub­li­can Par­ty and ulti­mate­ly into the vot­ing booth, and that’s some­thing that can’t be ignored.” . . .

COMMENT: In FTR #631,we explored a high-rank­ing Mor­mon offi­cial who rep­re­sents an appar­ent link between the LDS and the “ver­triebene groups.” That broad­cast high­lights the back­ground of a Ger­man nation­al, who has become one of the most impor­tant mem­bers of the lead­er­ship of the Mor­mon faith. Note that Jer­ry Uchtdorf’s fam­i­ly was expelled from the for­mer Czecho­slo­va­kia. The Sude­ten Ger­mans and oth­er Ger­man minor­i­ty fac­tions in the for­mer Czecho­slo­va­kia formed a pro-Nazi Fifth Col­umn before the Ger­man occu­pa­tion of that coun­try. The alleged “oppres­sion” of the Sude­ten Ger­mans and oth­ers was the pre­text for Hitler’s takeover of that coun­try. After the war, those Ger­mans were expelled, and came under the sway of the ver­triebene groups, over­seen by ele­ments of the post­war SS and sub­si­dized by the Ger­man gov­ern­ment. This gam­bit was a man­i­fes­ta­tion of“volks­grup­pen­rechte” or “the rights of native peo­ples,” dis­cussed in FTRs 615616,

Jabotin­sky, writ­ing in the Ital­ian Zion­ist paper, indi­cat­ed that the alliance was one of ide­ol­o­gy, not of con­ve­nience and expe­di­en­cy. Ben­jamin Netanyahu’s father Ben­zion Netanyahu, was the per­son­al sec­re­tary for Jabotin­sky. The elder Netanyahu was also a pall­bear­er at Jabotin­sky’s funer­al. Men­achem Begin had been a mem­ber of the Betar. Anoth­er Israeli Prime Minister–Yitzhak Shamir–belonged to the Stern Gang.

The Israeli right-wing has con­tin­ued its inter­face with Euro­pean Nazis and fas­cists.

The Romney/Netanyahu axis, in addi­tion to pre­sent­ing a dis­tort­ing ele­ment to Oba­ma’s mid­dle east pol­i­cy, could con­ceiv­ably man­i­fest as some sort of Octo­ber Sur­prise gam­bit vis a vis Iran.

“A Friend­ship Nur­tured in 1976 Res­onates in 2012” by Michael Bar­baro; The New York Times; 4/8/2012.

. . . . That shared expe­ri­ence decades ago led to a warm friend­ship, lit­tle known to out­siders, that is now rich with polit­i­cal intrigue. Mr. Netanyahu, the prime min­is­ter of Israel, is mak­ing the case for mil­i­tary action against Iran as Mr. Rom­ney, the like­ly Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee, is attack­ing the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion for not sup­port­ing Mr. Netanyahu more robust­ly.

The rela­tion­ship between Mr. Netanyahu and Mr. Rom­ney — nur­tured over meals in Boston, New York and Jerusalem, strength­ened by a net­work of mutu­al friends and height­ened by their con­ser­v­a­tive ide­olo­gies — has result­ed in an unusu­al­ly frank exchange of advice and insights on top­ics like pol­i­tics, eco­nom­ics and the Mid­dle East.

When Mr. Rom­ney was the gov­er­nor of Mass­a­chu­setts, Mr. Netanyahu offered him first­hand point­ers on how to shrink the size of gov­ern­ment. When Mr. Netanyahu want­ed to encour­age pen­sion funds to divest from busi­ness­es tied to Iran, Mr. Rom­ney coun­seled him on which Amer­i­can offi­cials to meet with. And when Mr. Rom­ney first ran for pres­i­dent, Mr. Netanyahu pre­scient­ly asked him whether he thought Newt Gin­grich would ever jump into the race.

Only a few weeks ago, on Super Tues­day, Mr. Netanyahu deliv­ered a per­son­al brief­ing by tele­phone to Mr. Rom­ney about the sit­u­a­tion in Iran. . . .

  1. Paul’s ver­sion of free­dom is encap­su­lat­ed in Ana­tole France’s obser­va­tion that “The law, in its majes­tic equal­i­ty, for­bids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread”. His sim­plis­tic lib­er­tar­i­an­ism is an apoth­e­o­sis of the wealthy and dif­fers from Nazi ide­ol­o­gy in no impor­tant aspect. What can pro­gres­sives be think­ing?

  3. @Dwight: I total­ly agree with the apoth­e­o­sis part but I’m afraid the Ana­tole France quote does­n’t seem to be at all accu­rate.
    I’d describe it more like this, if I may: The rich, being the supe­ri­or class they sup­pos­ed­ly are, in the cor­po­ratist view, will have free reign to do pret­ty much what­ev­er they please, while the poor and mid­dle class are stuck in a dog-eat-dog exis­tence where they are not only forced to beg and steal to sur­vive, but per­haps even per­se­cut­ed when they do man­age to move up!

    Per­haps I may be mis­un­der­stand­ing the orig­i­nal con­text of the quote and if any­one has a cor­rec­tion to make, you are more than wel­come to do so. =)

    Again, Dwight, just to reit­er­ate, I whole­heart­ed­ly agree with this sen­ti­ment of RP glo­ri­fy­ing the wealthy, as all the evi­dence I’ve seen is that he is indeed a pro-cor­po­ratist fringe faux-lib­er­tar­i­an that many peo­ple have come to view him as.

    And the real trag­ic thing is is that he has man­aged to present him­self in a man­ner that does still endear him to some of the more cen­trist lean­ing social pro­gres­sives, par­tic­u­lar­ly the hijack­ing of the pro-cannabis movement(which the Estab­lish­ment com­plete­ly despis­es, btw. Same rea­son they tried to destroy the youth move­ment in the ’60s).

    How­ev­er, though, I also see that more peo­ple are begin­ning to ask ques­tions, most notably, why he seems to be asso­ci­at­ed with Holo­caust deniers & oth­er fringe-right ass­holes and dickheads(like Mr. Duke for instance), so there is some hope, and frankly, RP’s chance for any major suc­cess in dent­ing the Democ­rats’ vot­ing ranks was in ’08 and he failed mis­er­ably.
    With more and more peo­ple get­ting pissed off at the GOP and lib­er­als start­ing to come togeth­er, if RP is going to be manip­u­lat­ed by the Crim­i­nal Estab­lish­ment as Nad­er was, it’s like­ly they’ll fall flat.

  4. How­ev­er, though, there’s a pos­si­bil­i­ty that things may go in the oth­er direc­tion as well. It is only April, after all, and there’s anoth­er 7 months until the elec­tion. Not a bad idea to keep our eyes open, IMHO. =)

  5. Dave: Your Aryan Nations show (part four) men­tions a Ronald Paul hav­ing knowl­edge of and sup­port­ing the failed Domini­ca coup of 1981. Michael Per­due says that he and the infa­mous John Con­nal­ly gave it the thumbs up. Can I assume this is the same fel­la?

  6. @Brad: Hel­lo, Brad! Per­son­al­ly, I now find myself ask­ing the same ques­tion. It’s been a long time since I’ve lis­tened to that par­tic­u­lar show but I’m gonna go back to it some­time and see if I can put some pieces togeth­er. Who knows? Maybe ol’ Ron­ny was con­nect­ed to the Domini­ca inci­dent as well.

    Yes, it is the same Ron Paul. Note that he is joined at the hip with Rom­ney.

    Best,

    Sources close to Sen­a­tor Rand Paul tell Nation­al Review Online that Paul and Mitt Rom­ney had a pri­vate meet­ing on Wednes­day. Details of the top­ics dis­cussed are hazy, but Paul — the son of Texas con­gress­man (and pres­i­den­tial can­di­date) Ron Paul — report­ed­ly found the meet­ing pro­duc­tive.

    The one-on-one con­ver­sa­tion in the nation’s cap­i­tal last­ed 30 min­utes. Sources say the tone was cor­dial but it wasn’t meant to be an exchange of pleas­antries. The Ken­tucky Repub­li­can focused his ques­tions on pol­i­cy.
