Rand Paul: Another white republication racist?

Posted: May 20, 2010 in Political Commentary, The Blog!

Fresh off of his big primary win yesterday over the GOP’s choice Trey Grayson, new republication Senate nominee for Kentucky and Tea Party favorite Rand Paul is already making a fool of himself with comments that aren’t very funny at all. Rand Paul, son of Libertarian Ron Paul, is only 24 hours removed from a very interesting victory. Ron Paul was never loved by the republications, so it will be interesting to see if his son will get the same love, it will be even more interesting to see how they try to defend him. Rand Paul said in a recent interview that though he would have marched with Martin Luther King, he is opposed of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was the law that prevented business from discriminating against people due to race. An example would be a small local burger shop having a “white’s only” sign in their window. Paul says that even though he doesn’t condone racist behavior, he also doesn’t believe that big government shouldn’t be involved to prevent it. He also believes that if a business owner doesn’t want someone in their establishment the government shouldn’t stop them from running it how they see fit. He also said he didn’t fully support the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 as it once again had to much government control. I understand that most conservatives like small government, because they are scared that a bigger government might mess with their bottom line and take awhile a bit of their pocket money by giving everyone else a shot, but this is ridiculous. Rand Paul is not starting on the right foot if he plans on winning this election. Democrat primary winner Jack Conway has got to be loving everything he is seeing right now. Conway is more of a moderate democrat being more conservative on gay rights issues and guns but definitely more liberal on most issues. Keep and eye out on this race, it will be interesting to see how Paul gets out of this racist mess that he has gotten himself into just one day after winning the primary.
