The Real Ron Paul Survival Report

As anyone who visits this blog knows, Ron Paul used to put out a racist newsletter called "The Ron Paul Survival Report," of which only a few of the originals have been available. But all this is about to change. is reporting that The New Republic will be making available more of these newsletters.

On Tucker Carlson's show 45 minutes ago, The New Republic's Jamie Kirchick alleged that Ron Paul called Martin Luther King a "gay pedophile," and stuffed 20 years' worth of "Ron Paul" newsletters full of "racist, anti-semitic, homophobic invective."

Kirchick, whose story for TNR (along with screen-shots of the newsletters themselves) are scheduled to go up at midnight EDT, said that Paul "called black people animals," and spoke at a "pro-secessionist conference." In teeing up the segment, Carlson, who was skeptical about some of Kirchick's claims, reported that the Paul campaign has apologized for the content of the newsletters to both Kirchick and Carlson.

This is going to be fantastic.
