Basil “Bazz” Childress of Lexington, KY is a big fan of Ron Paul.
And the feeling appears to be mutual. Ron Paul founded a 501(c)(4) called “Campaign for Liberty” that you might have heard of before. The non-profit’s aim (on off-shoot of the 2008 Presidential campaign of Paul) is “to promote and defend the great American principles of individual liberty, constitutional government, sound money, free markets, and a noninterventionist foreign policy, by means of educational and political activity”. Being a grassroots educational and political group, they require organizers on the ground to spread the good word about Liberty.
Like their official Fayette County Coordinator, Basil Childress. From his bio page on the official Campaign for Liberty site:
Location: Lexington, KY
Married 31 years, two daughters.
Family ties going back to colonial America (Virginia and South Carolina). (Revolutionary War veterans both sides of family).
Business degree from the University of Kentucky. Bank officer.
Member Central Baptist Church, Lexington Kentucky, John C. Breckinridge Camp 100, Sons of Confederate Veterans, League of the South, Kentucky Hunting Brotherhood, Association of the US Army.
We must recover the country – the one invented by Virginia and the South rather than the one Massachusetts’ Jacobins and Puritans have created.
That last quote kind of peak your interest? Also, what’s with some of those organizations he belongs to? Well, as you can see here, he is actually the state chairman of the Kentucky League of the South.
What’s the League of the South? According to the good folks at the Southern Poverty Law Center, they are a White Supremacist Hate Group advocating a second southern secession from the Union.
The League of the South is a neo-Confederate group that advocates for a second Southern secession and a society dominated by “European Americans.” The league believes the “godly” nation it wants to form should be run by an “Anglo-Celtic” (read: white) elite that would establish a Christian theocratic state and politically dominate blacks and other minorities. Originally founded by a group that included many Southern university professors, the group lost its Ph.D.s as it became more explicitly racist. The league denounces the federal government and northern and coastal states as part of “the Empire,” a materialist and anti-religious society.
Yes, they have a lot more here. And if you don’t believe that they are a Hate Group, I would give some friendly advice to engage in some deep introspection, for your sake and others’.
Summing up: Ron Paul’s 401 is being coordinated in Lexington by the statewide leader of a notorious White Supremacist group.
Given Ron Paul’s disgusting past of collaborating with some of the most vile racists that you can find, I can’t even really say that I’m shocked. Then again, I’m sure their folks will say that they saw no “racist tendencies” in good ‘ol Bazz.
