Mike: Professor Dr. Kevin Gutzman is on the Dude Maker Hotline with us. On Sunday last, an essay appeared on the pages of the New York Times. It was about the Paul family, Ron and Rand Paul, he, former congressman, and his son, current senator from the State of Kentucky. It was Sam Tanenhaus and Rutenberg who wrote this essay. In the essay they basically assailed the entire libertarian movement as basically a closet operation for a bunch of people that apparently are running around about the countryside just looking for the next act of overt racism or anarchy that they can get involved in. They threw Ron and Rand in that number. Then they went on to mention: By the way, the Pauls are supported by the intellectual efforts of men like Tom E. Woods, he and co-author Professor Kevin Gutzman of this disastrous, this horrific little screed called Who Killed the Constitution? Tom wrote a response to this. Lew Rockwell, who was also accused in the piece, responded to it. You have some things to say about this, correct?
Kevin Gutzman: I wasn’t aware that Tom had written a response to it.
Mike: Maybe he just referenced that Lew had responded to it.
Gutzman: I think that’s right. Basically what the article did was to find every remote association of the Pauls and find some way to make negative insinuations about Senator Paul’s attitudes on various hot-button social questions, including race. Somebody could do the same thing to Hilary Clinton. Somebody could say: Well, she’s a member of the Democratic Party, which was founded in 1824 to keep the slavery issue out of federal politics. Her husband is Bill Clinton, whose mentor was J. William Fulbright, famous segregationist senator from Arkansas. Easily one could do this to Mrs. Clinton. She supports Planned Parenthood, which was founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger who said we need to have fewer people from “inferior ethnic groups” in society. She’s been supported by the New York Times, which famously denied that the Ukrainian famine was being instigated by Stalin even as millions of Ukrainians were starving to death. This is essentially the level on which the Times was attacked Senator Paul.

That’s the ground on which Tom and I insist that the segregation system should never have occurred. If the 15th Amendment had been enforced for the century that it was ignored or flouted, then there wouldn’t have been this problem. For this New York Times article to say Tom Woods and his co-author have a book that criticizes Brown v. Board of Education, of course, it’s supposed to imply that he thinks segregation was a good thing, the Mises Institute thinks segregation was a good thing, and that must mean that Senator Paul thinks segregation was a good thing.
Mike: Guilt by association.
Gutzman: And all of it is a lie. As we have repeatedly said — I’ve explained myself twice. It’s a lie. It’s a lie by omission. I’m sure the people at the New York Times knew it. This is what they’re infamous for, for just running articles that lie about people. I posted on Facebook a couple days ago: Have I mentioned lately how happy I’m going to be when the New York Times inevitably goes bankrupt? I’m really looking forward to that.
