Comment: Rand's speech is not hate speech.

(See in situ)

Rand's speech is not hate speech.

He is trying to reduce our involvement in the middle east, including cutting foreign aid, preventing wars (Syria, ...), opposing any aid to rebels,etc. Many misunderstand his approach. Basically he is saying any Muslim extremism should be addresses by Muslim countries and not by us, meaning leave them alone. We can do far better by minding our business here at home.

If it is hate speech, he would have joined McCain, Graham and other war mongers in promoting bombing of all those countries.
