So What? Neo-Nazis and candidates pose for pics with all kinds of people, all the time, right?-It don't mean nuthin'!

Ah, but when said neo-nazi slips the candidate that he posed with some 'walking around money' it does mean something!

First the photo, taken this past September in Florida, that's Don Black in the center, his son to the right and Ronpaulio to the left:

Then, the story:

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul has received a $500 campaign donation from a white supremacist, and the Texas congressman doesn't plan to return it, an aide said Wednesday.

Don Black, of West Palm Beach, recently made the donation, according to campaign filings. He runs a Web site called Stormfront with the motto, "White Pride World Wide." The site welcomes postings to the "Stormfront White Nationalist Community." (more here.)

No big deal? Or just yet another of a series of flakey associations?

Don Black is not a "Neo-Nazi." If you are going to blog about a certain individual, don't put your own spin on it with an inaccurate label. You're as bad as the mainstream media.

I'm sure there are many "black rights" groups (Black Panthers?) rubbing their hands together, donating what they can to Obama, a candidate who won't even place his hand on his heart for the Pledge of Allegiance.

Wow, he's perfect for America!

Perhaps there are other issues, more important, more dire issues you should be concerned about other than who Ron Paul shakes hands with. I can think of hundreds.

The difference is Ron Paul has a long history of association with such groups and individuals. This is just the tip of the iceburg.

The media has been laying off of Paul cause he bashes Bush and opposes the War in Iraq. They love him for that.

Dear Anon.,
You're right. That was a bit reactionary and over the top to call him a Neo-Nazi.

I stand corrected-
Don Black is a White Supremacist.

White Supremacist isn't technically correct either. Stormfront people are white nationalists. The difference is, supremacists believe whites ought to lord it over everybody else. Seperatists believe different races should stick to themselves. As for Don Black, you should be aware that he does not get along too well with many in the group. He's a trouble-maker and a publicity hound, and there have been some suggestions that this incident is just another example of such antics by him. He's the one responsible for this being put out there to begin with-at least that's the rap in some circles.

Go to the Stormfront Page. They are big supporters of Paul, by and large. I'm going to do a post about it myself here soon. Put it this way-a picture is worth a thousand words, especially when the picture happens to be a campaign poster. However, it has nothing to do with race issues. They agree with his stands on big government,taxes, the constitution, foreign policy, etc.

In fact, some members of the forum have criticized Paul for not being openly in favor of "white pride", "white rights", etc., as they put it, while others have pointed out that he can't very well afford to do that and hope to make any kind of decent showing in the elections.

However, none of them have said anything to the effect that Ron Paul is openly a supporter of white racist beliefs, even though they like to think, or at least hope, that he is.
