Ron Paul’s “South Was Right” Civil War Speech With Confederate Flag



Ron Paul has made no secret the fact that he thought that the South was right in the Civil War. Here he is giving a speech in front of a giant Confederate Flag about why he believes the North was wrong in the Civil War and why the South was right.

Ron Paul is a neo-Confederate, and proud member of the Ludwig Von Mises Institute, which has been labeled as a neo-Confederate organization. In the video he claims that the North should have paid to buy slaves from southern slave owners to avoid the war, rather than the South renouncing slavery. Paul also fails to bring up the fact that it was the South that started the war by attacking the North in 1861.

Ron Paul was also was the only member of congress to vote against honoring the Civil Rights Act Of 1964 in on its 40th anniversary in 2004. Paul would also claim that he wouldn’t have voted for it at the time, putting him on the side of the racists in both the fight against slavery and the fight against Jim Crow segregation, the two defining struggles of Black people in America.

3. he's an idiot. confirms who wrote his newsletters.

My dad used to say about people like him, the south shall rise again. High enough to kiss a good yankee's ass.

OOPS! I might get alerted on.

RV, whose mom's family comes from Carolina (When it was one), Virginia and Missouri.

Oh, and I forgot to say that I'm related to Jefferson Davis through my Davis relatives. SOrry. I am truly sorry about that. Sometimes a little geneology is a bad thing.

4. lol! the north should have BOUGHT the slaves! rofl!

nevermind the morality or finances involved, what astounding idiocy!

if the south could have sold their slaves for a nice profit from the north, they would have just kept going back to africa for more and repeating the process. heck, the might have just gone to the north and kidnapped them back again and again.

then again, maybe that's his point.

5. The slave traders were from New England

Not defending slavery nor Ron Paul.

In NC freed slaves were still natural born US and NC citizens.

7. true, at least in part, but the point is that it wouldn't have worked.

it would have been extremely expensive for the north and it wouldn't have stopped a thing.

6. The North offered to compensate slave-owners at market rates

The South said "no".

Southern politicians argued that even if they were compensated, the ending of slavery would undermine the political and economic power of the Southern gentry.

Ron Paul is either ignorant of history or he's deliberately distorting it.
