Anonymous Hacks Neo-Nazis, Finds Ron Paul

Anonymous Hacks Neo-Nazis, Finds Ron Paul

Well this just got interesting.

The hacktivist collective Anonymous set out to take down the white supremacist American Third Party (A3P) in what they called “Operation Blitzkrieg” but they may have done much more.

In a document dump that includes private forum messages, emails, organization notes another other information the group found numerous connections between Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul and A3P. According to the documents, all hosted here, Paul himself regularly met with many A3P members, engaged in conference calls with their board of directors and engaged in a “bridging tactic” between A3P and the Ron Paul Revolution.

Other excerpts show A3P webmaster Jamie Kelso (whose email account was one hacked by the collective) coordinating meeting between Paul and other members of A3P such as corporate lawyer and chairman of the neo-Nazi group Paul. “I’m going to go to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) with Bill Johnson,” reads an email to an A3P member dated January 2011. “Bill and I will be meeting with Ron and Ran Paul. I have a teleconference call with Bill (and Ron Paul) tonight. Much more later. Things are starting to happen (thanks to folks like you).”

In another passage, Kelso, a former Scientologist and account owner of other German Nazi forums, wrote: “I’ll be at CPAC from Feb. 9 to Feb. 12. I’ll send back reports to you from personal meetings with Ron Paul, newly-elected Senator Rand Paul and many others. It’ll be here on WhiteNewsNow, a place that is really starting to get interesting because of the presence of folks like you. Birds of a feather flock together, and we are really gathering some quality here.”

Accusations of racism and ties to neo-Nazi interests have plagued Paul since the 1990s and have re-surfaced during this campaign. So far Paul has issued standard denials, claiming not to have been aware of the ties between his camp and the racist right and denied authorship of a series of racist newsletters, despite confirmation from his closest staff that Paul signed off on every detail.
So what’s Paul’s explanation now?

Who cares for Ron Paul than to concentrate on this loser and his nay saying crowd. Now they are really busy to get his son re-elected and busy aiding his buddy General Vlad Putin in keeping Ukraine's ex dictator and thief yanukovich from being caught and trialed.

Why is this back in the "news" today? This happened last year.

What isn't clear is whether this is Ron Paul supporting A3P or whether this is A3P supporting Ron Paul. If Paul supports A3P, its bad for Paul, and all of us who support him. If A3P supports Paul, it means nothing.

@Nancy C ...Yeah, ronnie and the evil 6 did a great hack job on the middle class, but it was all inclusive with gutting FCC rules so we could be given the appropriate propaganda by the 5 or 6 remaining Media outlets controlled by the corporate or rich dudes. Like substituting "Entertainment" in the place of actual news.You will note Obama's Climate Change speech was not covered in total by any media except the Weather Channel. Then of course ronnie finished the job by TA DA ...Gutting rules and regulations on Insurance companies and Banks, and on and on. Then along came the bushies to finish the job.

My parents taught me better! I would never belong to a club, party or group so full of bigots, racist, KKK, NRA, right wing militia, gay basher, Mexicans bashers. Asian bashers etc.. You notice those people are not in the Democratic Liberal Party! You Republicans are so so funny, or should I so so so sad! Despicable, arrogant, belligerent morons!

I assume someone has mentioned this, but it really should be corrected in this article ASAP.

It is "American Third Position" not "American Third Party". "Third Position" is a term with a LONG history in fascist movements, and the group intended it to be clear they were a fascist organization. "American Third Party" is both falsely innocuous and inaccurate on the part of the writer.

It would be nice to hear for once about companies that treat their workers as human beings!

When we get real about "the Obama Administration", never nailing the leader and inept, weak commander-in-chief…

Truth is the highest level of reality. The Word encourages us all to challenge what others say before…
