Surely your ilk can do better than this.

Wow the $500 thing is an obvious smear by the MSM. I have a hard time understanding how moderators at a conspiracy site can help perpetuate the nonsense that it is.
I'm sure every candidate has had some donation from an extremist organization at one point. You don't see them handing it back.
Ron Paul's popularity is still on the rise no thanks to the MSM. Come vote day you all will be surprised.

So what he took money from a man who pushes white pride. Whats the difference here, its the same as Al Sharpton taking money from the NAACP a black pride organization. Why is it that a white man is labled a racist if he takes pride in his color. But if a black man or spanish man takes pride in thier color they are doing good in the world?????
its a double standard IMO and it makes me sick.
Im White and im proud say it out loud!!!!!! Good for you Mr. Paul if this is what went down.

Do you really need it spelled out for you? Yet again? The guy runs a neo nazi web site. Based on your statement would he keep a donation from NAMBLA? or any other extremist group?
Please show me where anyother candidate has not retured funds from neo nazi's? Please exclude David Duke however

Ron Paul keeps white supremacist donation
(visit the link for the full news article)
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."
There's the distinction that, it appears, you're failing to see. He didn't receive a donation from an "extremist group"; he received a donation from a private citizen. If a sizable check was signed "KKK", or "NazisR'us", it might be a different story; however, the notion of screening every small donation, by private citizens, is ridiculous.
Perhaps or perhaps we have jumped the shark here as well. You never know. The only thing I am surprised at is this insistance that there is nothing wrong with taking money from neo nazi's

where you both are wrong is equating White supremacy with Black pride.... Understanding this, one would NOT equate Al Sharpton and Barack Obama as racist ideologues, both of whom promote ...
