Ron Paul - Communist Sympathizer?

Front Page Magazine has a bit on Ron Paul's alignment with certain unsavory groups.

The campaign mounted by campus leftists against Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week, which is scheduled to take place on more than 100 campuses during the week of October 22-26 has taken a new turn with the announcement of a counter-protest at the Washington Monument. The protest, which will be called “American Fascism Awareness Day” is being organized by Adam Kokesh of Iraq Veterans Against the War, the Revolutionary Communist Party, Students for Justice In Palestine, and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee among others and will feature speakers such as congressman Dennis Kucinich and presidential candidate Ron Paul, anti-war activists Cindy Sheehan and Harry Karry and actor Sean Penn. According to a spokesperson for the Revolutionary Communist Party, one of the sponsors of the event, “This is an answer to the Jew Horowitz and the neo-conservative Zionists who dragged us into an imperialist war in Iraq and are spreading hatred against Muslims to support their war plans against the Republic of Iran.”
I left the Libertarian Party because of their communist line on foreign policy. I'd say my diagnosis was 100% correct. It should have been. In my ill spent youth I was a follower of the Trots. This comes under the heading of suspicions confirmed.

Update: It looks like I have been hoaxed. The "flyer" for the event lists Nov. 31st as the date of the event. There is no Nov. 31st on any calendar. I still stand by my point that the Libs have taken the Communist line on Foreign Policy. HT commenter Grant at Power and Control.

The advertised date for this event is November 31, 2007. It is a hoax.

I just emailed Ron Paul to verify if it's real. We'll see what the response is.

By their friends ye shall know them.

This is a well known hoax. Front Page Mag has lost my respect, I used to read them too.

It's not just the date. You can Google all the so-called participants and find out that none of them are participating.

Two words for you, my man: "fucking clownshoes."

Received just a while ago from Ron Paul Campaign:

Thanks for writing. The event is indeed a hoax. As you have probably realized, November 31 is not a real date.

This is someone's idea of "humor."

Thanks again.

It is my idea of humor. Even though it had me fooled at first.
