Skip to comments.Ron Paul in 2009: “I Wouldn’t Have Risked American Lives” To End The Holocaust
Posted on 12/27/2011 9:32:29 AM PST by Nachum
On the evening of Sept. 16, 2009, I was invited to a function for Rand Pauls U.S. Senate campaign at the headquarters of Americans for Tax Reform.
I had been invited by a friend of mine via Facebook who was a passionate supporter of Ron Paul. Within minutes of arriving, I saw Rep. Paul enter the room, followed by an entourage of several college students.
I immediately walked up to Paul and introduced myself, and Paul smiled at me and shook my hand. I told him that I had always wanted to ask him a question, and that it was a hypothetical question, but I would appreciate his answer nonetheless. Paul smiled, and welcomed the question. At this point there were about 15 people surrounding us, listening.
And so I asked Congressman Paul: if he were President of the United States during World War II, and as president he knew what we now know about the Holocaust, but the Third Reich presented no threat to the U.S., would he have sent American troops to Nazi Germany purely as a moral imperative to save the Jews?
And the Congressman answered:
No, I wouldnt. I wouldnt risk American lives to do that. If someone wants to do that on their own because they want to do that, well, thats fine, but I wouldnt do that.

Paul’s a loon,as if we needed further proof.His crazed supporters will ignore this as they have many other insights into his character.
And this is the same Ron Paul who defends Irans right to a nuclear weapon while continually making the point that he wants the United States to cut aid to Israel.
Reading the header sort of disgusted me. I only say sort of because, coming from RP, it doesn’t surprise me. Then I got to thinking how many pols today are actively doing their part to bring about a more thorough holocaust and RP’s comments seem almost tame.
Knowing what he knows now, 6M slaughtered - he’s the heartless one Perry was speaking of! Strange comment for being a doctor, also.
Please do not take this as a defense of Paul (I do not like anything about him), but to be fair, what would have Roosevelt’s answer been? Or Clinton’s? I think Nixon, Reagan, and the Bushi would have done the right thing, as would have Truman, JFK and Johnson. Just my $0.02.
This is consistent with paleo conservatives like Pat Buchannan. Not surprising at all. Isolationists in the 1930’s tended to be anti Semitic.
This creates a huge problem for me (and other Virginians). Stopping Paul is my #1 priority, but if I want to cast a primary ballot my only choice will be Mitt.
Maybe if more people read the Constitution in the eyes of the Torah as it was in those eyes that it was written & adopted in the 1st place, then YHVH could finally remove the blinders(2 Chron 7:14). It is so frustrating when a group that claims to be constitutional conservatives act as hypocrites, picking and choosing what parts of the US Constitution they like and which parts are dispensable for religious sake. Isn't that what we are fighting for? The restoration of that which was never meant to be dispensable?
It is bad enough our government is overrun by communist criminals, and we have to deal nutcases like Paul as well.
The American electorate are to blame for the condition of our government. This is what happens when you get lazy, complacent and ignorant. Freedom is lost.
“WE are the problem here!”
? This, “Isolationists in the 1930s tended to be anti Semitic.”
why single out one group. By definition wouldn’t isolationists be anti every group or nation but the USA?
Are you saying isolationists would not have to the aid of Ijews would have to the aid of muslims?
To be clear Paul’s position is abhorrent, but it is consistent to him.
And he could have done something!!

Paul is so retarded.
FDR sent the SS St. Louis back to Germany and we knew about the camps as early as 1942 and said nothing because FDR didn’t want it to be “a Jewish war”.
