Ron Paul may now be backing away from controversial newsletters published in the 80s and 90s, but he took a different tone in a 1995 interview.

Buzzfeed's Andrew Kaczynski unearthed this video of Paul taking credit for the newsletters.

"I...do a newsletter, it's called the Ron Paul Survival Report," he said. "It's expressing concerning about surviving in this age of big government."

The GOP candidate has recently come under fire for these newsletters, which contained a slew of inflammatory comments about race and homosexuality. In one ad for the newsletters, he warned of a "coming race war" and a "federal-homosexual cover-up" of AIDS.

Paul has recently denied ever writing them.
