Andy Ostroy Accuses Ron Paul of Racial Remarks while Admitting He May Not Have Written Them
2011’s Fraudie Recipient Solidifies His Third Consecutive Win

Ostroy has done it. He has finally written his very first article on Ron Paul. Not surprisingly he has chosen to hop aboard the smear Ron Paul wagon and make miserable attempts to label Ron Paul a racist for 20 year old newsletters that Ron Paul has repeatedly denied writing and has condemned on numerous occasions.
It is becoming obvious, even to the likes of people like Ostroy, that Ron Paul has now emerged as a rock-solid threat to capturing the GOP nomination, so the mainstream media, along with liberal hacks like Ostroy, are pulling no punches in digging up whatever they can to make Ron Paul’s poll numbers drop. This is all they can come up with on Ron Paul: 20 year old newsletters that were not even written by Ron Paul. Hilarious.
In fact, Ostroy even admits this in his article. Ostroy writes:
“And as for whether he's the actual writer or not, the offensive comments were made in his newsletters under his byline.”
Just to point out how easy this is to do [create a newsletter and attach Ron Paul’s name to it], I have created the “Andy Ostroy Political Report”, complete with racial comments. I will attribute these very words to Andy Ostroy. Why? Well, because I can. Here is the first issue: [click to enlarge]
See? Easy to do. I created it in under 10 minutes.
Will Andy admit to making these racial comments posted by me in his very first political report newsletter? Probably not. Why? Because he didn’t write them? Well, that’s a fair reason. But, will we believe him? Ostroy expects Ron Paul to admit to words he never wrote or endorsed, but will Ostroy admit to uttering the words in his newly created newsletter [above]? If not, why?? After all, look at the newsletter. It has the name "ANDY OSTROY" in real big fucking letters. That alone confirms he wrote them, does it not??
Ostroy also lies in the article when he says:
“Paul is a 1950's era Texan who's on record saying he doesn't believe in the 1964 Civil Rights act.”
First, Ron Paul was not born in Texas. He did not move to Texas until he was 33 years old. So, he’s not a Texan. As far as the Civil Rights act, Ron Paul endorses civil rights. My goodness, he’s a libertarian! He has said over and over [only for it to fall on the deaf ears of liberals] that he does not favor the government legislating civil rights.
I posted this on Ostroy’s blog. Naturally Ostroy will not approve of the comments, so here they are:
“Ostroy, youre a liar. Ron Paul did not write the newsletters. As for your comment "Paul is a 1950's era Texan who's on record saying he doesn't believe in the 1964 Civil Rights act."---wrong AGAIN. He believes in civil rights, he just disagrees that its the GOVERNMENTS' job to interfere in that and force people to act civil. It's a moral issue, not a LEGAL one that the government should interfere in.
If a restaurant owner doesnt want to serve a black person, they should not forced to by some civil rights law. They have the right NOT to serve them, but they will feel the reprocussions of that act. They will lose business because they are racists, no doubt. Not the governments job to interfere in that. THAT is all Ron Paul is saying in that issue. Nothing more, nothing less.
You did not post ONE link or ONE source in your article that proves Ron Paul wrote those letters. All you did was post quotes and say Ron Paul wrote them. That's not journalism and it's not fact-checking. It's propaganda and you should be ashamed.”
Of course, Ostroy is not ashamed at all. You have to be human first.
