(FOX19) - I told you Wednesday night that in 2007 the New Republic magazine published copies of the Ron Paul Report, Ron Paul Strategy Guide, etc.
In those newsletters were some passages that could be deemed racist and certainly inappropriate.
I also pointed out that the author of those articles, James Kirchick, mentions that none of the racist newsletters have a byline, except for one.
The only problem, back in 2007, he did not disclose the name of that writer or which edition he or she wrote, until today.
For the first time, I am going to share with you the name of that writer in connection with the article he authored.
It is a 1993 edition of the Ron Paul Strategy Guide. The article is titled "How to Protect Against Urban Violence." The author is James B. Powell.
The full eight pages of his article match so closely to some of those other so-called "racist newsletters" it is stunning.
Powell writes about the 1992 riots in L.A., as well as the "holocaust coming to America's urban areas." He calls California Congresswoman Maxine Waters a militant leader. The article goes on to talk about how to be self-reliant when well armed gangs move in and threaten your home.
Like the other newsletters, it is not racist, per se, but certainly could be deemed questionable or insensitive.
But there is a bigger issue than just Ron Paul here.
What you may not know is that in this presidential election cycle, every single candidate for president, including President Obama, has been called a racist.
Herman Cain was called a racist because he said blacks had been brainwashed into voting for the democratic party.
Mitt Romney was called a racist by Bill Maher because he is a Mormon, and called racist by MSNBC for continually calling the President by his first and last names instead saying President Obama.
Newt Gingrich was called a racist just a few months ago for calling Palestinians an invented people.
Michelle Bachmann was called a racist a few months ago after saying African American children and black families were better off during slavery presumably because they had both parents living with them. She says she was clearly taken out of context.
Rick Perry was called a racist for a name spray painted on a rock at a hunting camp rented by his family.
Also saying he was taken out of context, one of the latest claims against Rick Santorum, is saying he is a racist for a supposed statement he made that blacks shouldn't receive welfare. He says he didn't say that.
President Obama himself has been called a racist by many people, including Glenn Beck, who triggered a fire-storm after saying he believes President Obama doesn't like white people.
President Obama also called a racist for attending the Reverend Wright's church for 20 years.
Here's what you need to know.
The talk of racism has become the lowest form of political discourse.
Even as I just went down that list, some of you at home thought to yourselves how the candidates you don't like, probably are racist.
And when you heard the name of a candidate you support, you thought "No", that's ridiculous.
See how it works?
Anything that can be deemed insensitive is called racist. Anyone who stands too close to those who say those things, are racist.
Under the examples I just gave you, are they all racists? Maybe none of them are?
How about this year, we try to have an election based on substance, on ideas, and on political record, rather than on name calling.
