Obama Is Attacking Rand Paul

From an email representing Obama..

--

Kentucky Republican Rand Paul was born a year before the Civil Rights Act was enacted, but in the past few days, he's said repeatedly that he opposes key pieces of the law.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was an unambiguous victory in the struggle for equality in the United States. In a single moment, legal segregation in schools and public places came to an end.

But, again and again, in interviews with local press, NPR, and Rachel Maddow, Paul has said that he doesn't support the law as it was written. He believes that businesses should have the right to discriminate based on race, gender, disability, or any other factor. When asked about whether or not he supports desegregating lunch counters, Paul couldn't even answer yes or no.

Rand Paul needs to know that his position is unacceptable, and it will take a massive public outcry for him to feel the political consequences. Help us send a message -- sign our letter to Rand Paul today.

If you think it's ridiculous that we're still debating the merits of the Civil Rights Act today -- 46 years after the fact -- you're correct.

But political views like this are exactly why Rand Paul has become a champion for the extreme wing of his party. If he is elected, he will be their voice in the Senate -- taking up their plans to roll back all the changes that we've worked so hard to achieve and undermine the accomplishments of those who came before us.

It's time that Rand Paul heard from people who aren't ring-wing extremists. We've written an open letter to Paul to make it clear that his views have no place in 2010. Will you co-sign with us?

Talk about your spin...

Quote from above article, "When asked about whether or not he supports desegregating lunch counters, Paul couldn't even answer yes or no."

I just read a NYTimes article where they said he answered yes to this question.

I watched the show where Maddow grilled him over and over. He did NOT answer "yes" to that question.

This isn't Obama

It's the Democratic National Committee sub-group Organizing for America, Kentucky chapter campaign.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Obama is a Democrat...

No different than saying McCain is a Republican, they are all in the same mix, with the exception of liberty minded, and statesmen, ie Ron Paul, and his son Rand as far as I am concerned.

You know we are onto something...

when both the neo-cons and the communists are attacking. "Freedom is popular."

Good!

Obama is attacking Rand Paul!?
Wow, this is the best stroke of fortune to happen to Rand Paul's campaign.
With Obama's horrible approval ratings with the people, Probably every candidate in America right now (Democrat or Republican) wishes Obama would attack them.

Let it not be said that we did nothing.-Ron Paul
Stand up for what you believe in, even if you stand alone.-Sophia Magdalena Scholl

I personally think.....

Obama is unacceptable, don't you?

Ditto!

You've got that right.

He doesn't like Rand?

This means the Dems are running scared,This might help Rand,Obama doesn't like Rand Paul?Then I will vote for Rand!.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

This is an all out attack by

This is an all out attack by the controllers!

wow, Barack is such a joke

Seriously, I don't think Barack or any of his people read bills or listen to full statements from people. Instead they just get their news from altered or shortened MSM clips.

One small thing in this remark is the difference between the CRA on public places and then the PRIVATE businesses.
This is what Rand has brought up and follows in line with Libertarian thought.

Its also funny how this is claiming Rand to be a right-wing extremist which is far from the truth. I'm pretty sure he is Republican b/c third parties are not viable in the USA, at least not yet. He is a Libertarian.

reedr3v's picture

Of course Obama has no understanding

of freedom and fears it. Anything outside his control is "extremist" and he's willing to pull down this country to keep power centralized to the Elite. They own him.

I've decided that it is you, reedr3v

who is wrong thinking. Ron Paul authored a book titled The Revolution: A Manifesto (2008) and he repeatedly calls for another American Revolution. The American and French Revolutions were the work of Judeo-Freemasonry and, according to the Protocols of Sion, revolutions are the means by which Learned Elders obtain absolute control over sovereign nations. if you keep supporting that type of thinking, the elite will own this entire country.

Thanks Barack.

You have officially declared war on the truth.

Prepare to be boarded.

Well, Rand did say bring it on. LOL

I gotta laugh because it is so obvious this was all preplanned. I bet this was all planned a month ago. Everyone got their script and away we go.

This could be in our favor if Rand would listen to his dad. Ron Paul gave an excellent explanation and it made sense.

Prepare & Share the Message of Freedom through Positive-Peaceful-Activism.

Exactly

I think you're reading this right quilt. They're pre-testing the situation with their BS to see what'll stick but it was totally preplanned. This is a great test for Rand because now he has to react and come up with the freedom explanation in a way that's compelling. His old man has it down cold so hopefully Rand can turn it around. Rand seems more flexible than Ron which is both a blessing and maybe not a blessing. We'll see.

This wont work

because I heard people talking how Obama and minions are using the race card. These people I talk to are regular quasi-neocon republicans. So it is well establish amongst people that Obamanites are using race as an excuse for anything; or at least that is a popular believe.

Commenting on my comment

Rand did as good as he could've. I don't know what I'd fix. But in watching that 2 times it was a hatchet attack. Probably if you took a survey the laziest conclusion would be Rand is vulnerable if minorities vote in a block. So they got this puppet to lob their early divider bomb. She was affected.

"still debating'? Rand said he'd never read it and tried to

change the subject! Maddow was 'still debating' and Kerry sent out a letter from the Dem Senate c'ee on this last month as well.

Their followers must really be idiots.

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

This is really ridiculous

But when your dealing with psychoPATHETIC criminals what can we really expect ?

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

The dumbest thing I have ever seen...

MSNBC..."Hey Joe Blow...How do you feel about XYZ..."

Joe Blow "yada yada yada"

Democrats.."If you think it's ridiculous that we're still debating the merits of XYZ-- 46 years after the fact -- you're correct."

Well no kidding...you fools. Your own socialist network is the one asking the questions and debating the merits, not Joe Blow...But they won't be able to see that. Or will they?

Race over economy

Unemployment today has no racial boundaries. Production in the US sent overseas, has put many racial groups out of work, how's that for a rebuttal?

Ron Paul on Civil Rights Act

http://www.lewrockwell.com/paul/paul188.html

"The Civil Rights Act of 1964 gave the federal government unprecedented power over the hiring, employee relations, and customer service practices of every business in the country. The result was a massive violation of the rights of private property and contract, which are the bedrocks of free society. The federal government has no legitimate authority to infringe on the rights of private property owners to use their property as they please and to form (or not form) contracts with terms mutually agreeable to all parties. The rights of all private property owners, even those whose actions decent people find abhorrent, must be respected if we are to maintain a free society."

There's that word again

There's that word again "unacceptable." Wonder if Obama has actually listened to what Rand Paul said or is he getting his information from the rhetoric of TV talking heads? You know much like where his understanding of 1070 came from.

wow

the elites are scared.

the empire is on the run.

That's what I think

They pulled "Brutus" Maddow right out of the shoot. That's a pretty clear indication of desperation. LOL!!

They had to play the card early.

Rand had a 25 point lead over his Dem opponent the day after the primary win.

I think

it's good they pulled the race card out this early. I think it gives Paul a good amount of time to address it. Can you imagine this a week before the election

Oh sh*t

we are already rolling full steam ahead, gotta love it.

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must. like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.-Thomas Paine

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

wow this is a laughable

wow this is a laughable attack, and there are so many people out there who eat this up because its a direct appeal to an emotional response using a sensitive cultural trigger.

i wouldnt begin to comment on this piece of legislation because i know nothing of it in terms of the language of which it contains. i wish most other people shared my humility of things they know little to nothing about.

TOTAL APPEAL TO EMOTION

This is a joke! They don't care about the facts or having a reasoned nuanced debate, this is full out framing to evoke a visceral response!
