Ron Paul Endorsed White Supremacist for President in 2008

In 2008, Ron Paul did not endorse Republican nominee John McCain, but rather Paul endorsed Constitutional Party Candidate Chuck Baldwin.  Baldwin is a neo-Confederate New World Order conspiracy theorist who praises the confederacy and its leaders, Robert E. Lee andStonewall Jackson, and calls the Civil War the “War of Northern Aggression.” Baldwin writes a weekly column on the white supremacist site Vdare and is a proud supporter of American militia movements.

As reported by Reason magazine, Baldwin believes that  “if America wishes to remain a free and independent republic, if this nation truly desires future peace and prosperity, and if we genuinely aspire to remain a blessed and protected land, we must quickly throw off this foolish infatuation with multiculturalism, which is nothing more than an attempt to de- Christianize our country, and humbly return to the God of our fathers!”
