Well color me not surprised.
Twitter is a atwitter this evening with the news that the hacker group Anonymous mounted an attack against a series of White Supremacist groups, generally smashing, exposing, and defacing the sites. That in itself is at a minimum, worthy of note, but the kicker is what they found at one of the sites.
According to the Anonymous press release :
...we also found a disturbingly high amount of members who are also involved in campaigning for Ron Paul. According to these messages, Ron Paul has regularly met with many A3P members, even engaging in conference calls with their board of directors.
The dump over the past few weeks finding out that Ron Paul not only knew of but approved of his racist newsletters was interesting, but this is really icing on the cake.
Ron Paul's racist politics and affiliations are already well known, being viciously anti-immigrant, anti-abortion and against gay marriage -- not to mention having authored the racist "Ron Paul Papers" and receiving financial support from other white power groups.
Over at International Business Times , they even have the photo of Ron Paul posing with Supremacist Don Black.
I can't say that I always approve of the tactics used by Anonymous, but I have a hard time not taking a little pleasure at seeing Ron Paul exposed for the liar that he is.
