Wikileaks and Julian Assange Hero Ron Paul will deliver the keynote address at the Fatima conference next month which the Southern Poverty Law Center describes as “the single largest group of hard-core anti-Semites in North America.”
Ron Paul will appear alongside the president of the John Birch Society and an assortment of other wingnuts at the two-day conference.

Beyond the obvious, what do a far-right Italian politician, the president of the John Birch Society and former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul have in common?
In early September, the men are all scheduled to speak – along with a lengthy list of archconservative clergy, lawyers and academics – at a conference in Canada sponsored by the Fatima Center, part of the “radical traditionalist Catholic” movement, perhaps the single largest group of hard-core anti-Semites in North America. [...]
Also scheduled to speak is Roberto Fiore, an Italian politician, who, when he won a seat to the European Parliament in 2008, was described by a fellow member of the body as “absolutely the most extreme person who has ever served in the European Parliament.”
John F. McManus, the president of the archconservative John Birch Society (JBS) is also listed as a speaker at the Canadian conference. JBS has been dogged for decades by charges of anti-Semitism, accusations society leaders vehemently deny. Those same leaders, however, take great pride in JBS being at the forefront of the conspiracy-fueled attacks on Agenda 21, a non-binding United Nations plan for sustainable development around the world. [...]
One of the speakers scheduled to join McManus at the D.C. conference is E. Michael Jones, the South Bend, Ind.-based editor of Culture Wars magazine. The magazine’s cover stories have included “Judaizing: Then and Now,” “The Judaism of Hitler,” and “Shylock Comes to Notre Dame.”
In an article raging about a new president of Notre Dame University several years ago, Jones charged that anyone who went to a mainstream university would emerge “with a Jewish world view … and maybe a Jewish spouse.”
Yes, but, Ron Paul opposes drones so I suppose he does have some common ground with characters on the far left.
