Ron Paul Letter from 1993 Makes 9/11 Truthers Look Perfectly Sane

The Ron Paul defense when it comes to those damaging newsletters has been that he didn't write them or read them. Unfortunately, the latest 8-page letter to come out circa 1993 bears his signature at the bottom and his letterhead at the top. This would be the equivalent of Barack Obama denying he heard Jeremiah Wright scream 'G-d D--n America' in video that showed Obama in attendance that day.

Via Reuters, h/t Doug Ross:
A direct-mail solicitation for Ron Paul's political and investment newsletters two decades ago warned of a "coming race war in our big cities" and of a "federal-homosexual cover-up" to play down the impact of AIDS.

The eight-page letter, which appears to carry Paul's signature at the end, also warns that the U.S. government's redesign of currency to include different colors - a move aimed at thwarting counterfeiters - actually was part of a plot to allow the government to track Americans using the "new money."
Here is a screen shot of the top of page 1 (note Ron Paul letterhead):

Paul's responses to questions about his newsletter include denials of any involvement or having any knowledge of who was. Those responses are quite necessary for his campaign because the contents of those newsletters are quite incendiary:
The letter's details emerge at a time when Paul, now a contender for the Republican nomination for president, is under fire over reports that his newsletters contained racist, anti-homosexual and anti-Israel rants. 
Reports of the newsletters' contents have Paul's campaign scrambling to deny that he wrote the inflammatory articles. 
Among other things, the articles called the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. a "world-class philanderer," criticized the U.S. holiday bearing King's name as "Hate Whitey Day," and said that AIDS sufferers "enjoy the attention and pity that comes with being sick."
In Paul's letter, which he signed, the rhetoric isn't all that different:

Even if one makes the leap that Paul is not at all responsible for the content of his newsletters two decades ago, it's beyond being a bridge too far for him to attempt to deny someone placed his signature at the bottom of this solicitation without his knowledge or permission.

HERE is a link to the entire letter.
