Why does Rand Paul’s new campaign manager work with a white supremacist?

As we noted earlier, Rand Paul’s new campaign manager/spokesperson is Jesse Benton, the current Senior Vice President of Ron Paul’s 501(c)4 lobbying organization Campaign for Liberty.

Campaign for Liberty does work throughout the country by appointing state, regional and county coordinators. These coordinators are responsible for the recruitment, training and activism of local members. Though states have a certain degree of autonomy, the national HQ has the power to fire or remove coordinators.

And speaking of county coordinators, this seems like a good opportunity to reintroduce our readers to someone we met back in back in March.

Meet the Fayette County (KY) coordinator for Campaign For Liberty, Basil “Bazz” Childress.

Basil, you see, is a white supremacist.

He is the state chairman of the Kentucky League of the South. And the Kentucky League of the South is, as the SPLC points out, 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.

Yeah. And here’s bonus footage of ole Bazz talking about the War of Northern Aggression:

So… will Jesse Benton be able to come in and clean up the race mess that Rand Paul and David Adams created by repeatedly bashing Title II of the Civil Rights Act?

Considering the fact that CFL has known that they use the labor of an open white supremacist as a county coordinator since at least March and done nothing about it… I’d say that might not work out.

But at least Bazz doesn’t have any lynching pictures up anywhere, that I can see.

Go ahead and add the Kentucky League of the South to Stormfront.org, David Duke, the Ohio Valley Freedom Fighters militia, Randall Terry, and the John Birch Society as groups that support Rand Paul.

But remember, no racism or radical extremism to see here!!!
