He hasn't been the Republican candidate in Kentucky for one week, and already Rand Paul finds himself in over his comments about private businesses and the Civil Rights Act.

It all started when Paul told a local paper in Kentucky that he supported the Civil Rights Act because it ended public discrimination but ... and this is a big "but" for many Americans ... "I don't like the idea of telling private business owners - I abhor racism, I think it's a bad business decision to ever exclude anyone from your restaurant - but at the same time I do believe in private ownership."

So then Rand Paul goes on MSNBC with Rachel Maddow - whoever in the hell SHE is. Rachel Maddow asks him something based on this interview with the Kentucky paper. She asks: "Do you think that a private business has the right to say, 'We don't serve black people'?"

Paul's response: "Yes."

Well .. there you go. From this point on Paul's opinions and philosophy on the size of government, national debt, economic liberty and self reliance are going to be ignored. It will all be about whether or not Rand Paul and the tea party supporters who propelled him to victory are "racists."

So?

I require my patrons to wear a jacket and tie makes me a racist? This is such garbage. If I want a particular atmosphere at my place of business, am I a racist?

Formerly rprevolutionist

Rand should really SUE MSNBC

Rand should really SUE MSNBC for lying.. He NEVER said YES.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Oh wow.

when did you decide to have a change of heart.

Boobus obviously ain't ready for liberty

Perhaps Rand can convene a few focus groups, draft some talking points, wave the flag a bit more and refine his image a little.

Booritz?

Hey You liked Calling Rand Paul a Neo-Con..

Yet when his mom Carol Paul came out and said he is not one what is your response to her?

"I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."
-- Thomas Jefferson

The response any stranger would have to a mother's alibi...

skepticism. Sold Rand on HHO yet?

Wow.

Just go ahead and Call Ron a Zionist why don't you. Up yours dickhead. I still run it to my engine and get excellent gas mileage. And I'm not going to bump this crap topic again.

Kissin' Zionist butt don't make anyone a Zionist, necessarily

only a savvy politician (can't accuse Ron of that, but Rand...).

quote:
"Should we limit speech from people we find abhorrent? Should we limit racists from speaking?"

Well, in this case, Spike Lee should not be allowed to make any movies anymore. He's a racist.
He once said that he does not like interracial couples, and he stares at them to make them feel uncomfortable.

I'm the white part of an interracial couple.

But I would never say he has no right to his creepy opinion, who cares anyway, right?

Good for you. This lying sack

Good for you. This lying sack of "rip" never heard Rand say "YES", anyway..

That's right. Rand never said

That's right. Rand never said "yes". MSNBC forges the transcript and it becomes reality. strange world.
