Rand Paul Racist, Just Like His Father Ron Paul

May 20, 2010

Rand Paul, the Kentucky Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, made a most outlandish statement about the matter of segregation, an issue that most thought settled decades ago.  None of this should come as a surprise since Rand comes from a father, Ron Paul, who is a racist inside and out.  It should also be noted that I have argued for months that the teabaggers have a great deal of racist attitudes that drive and propel them onwards.  Rand Paul is the poster boy of the Tea Party.  If it looks like a duck….quacks like a duck…….

Ron Paul’s newsletters were made famous in The New Republic article that included this nugget.

One newsletter ridiculed black activists who wanted to rename New York City after King, suggesting that “Welfaria,” “Zooville,” “Rapetown,” “Dirtburg,” and “Lazyopolis” were better alternatives. The same year, King was described as “a comsymp, if not an actual party member, and the man who replaced the evil of forced segregation with the evil of forced integration.”

So should it surprise us that Rand Paul would also share some of the racist mentality of his father, while trying to clean some of it up with tidy-sounding phrasing?  But let us not be deluded about what constitutes racism, and call it for what it is when it rears its ugly head.

    So why did you guys favor him by 59% and his numbers continue to grow? You don’t have the excuse that electronic voting is rigged…. as the balllots were paper….

    Many recall those awful days when this nation was ripped apart due to those who could not find it in their hearts to understand that a lunch counter should not be ‘whites only’. For Rand Paul not to be able to give a full-throated endorsement to a page of history that has been turned shows what he lacks as a man. As such he is not fit to lead even his local Elks Club, let alone carry the responsibility of the citizens of Kentucky in the senate. BTW, I reside in Green Spring, Kentucky. Many are most uncomfortable with this man and what he stands for.

    You forgot your other talking point……The Trilateral Commission. I am surprised that one slipped by you.

    You folks are all daft and should never think the rational folks in the nation are giving you the reins of power. You may, as you do now, have this person or that one in some office here and there, but you are so out of the mainstream with your bat-shit crazy theories and notions that it is just laughable. Those you think about the issues and ideas of how to form governments fully understand that libertarianism can not work in America. To think so is to show pure naivete.

    Ron Paul is a John Bircher, a bigot, and Rand is another one like his father.

    If you think there is following for that in the nation then I feel sorry for you.

    Condescend……..do something that one considers to be below one’s dignity.

    In others words….words that Rand and Ron and thier followers can understand……it is not right to have one entrance in a building out of many for the disabled person……any more than it is right for whites to use the front entrance and ‘darkies’ enter in the rear of the building.

    “Finally if I were a handicapped person in your offices I would be the first to bitch-slap you for your condescending attitude about where I should/could enter the damn building.”

    Condescending : To show feelings of superiority; patronize

    Are you role playing? Where in that comment was there condescension?

    I simply am stating the fedearal gov’t shouldn’t dictate how you should run your business……

    You sir are role playing.

    FYI the free market isn’t working b/c those in power have regulated it so much that it only works for those that take taxpayers money for their pyramid schemes and scandalous risky business…

    Federal Reserve (organized money) = False Left Right Paradigm (organized crime). Dems and Reps play theatrics but are the same people. Very few politicians tell it like it is. Rand Paul, Ron Paul, 2 Parties, 1 Enemy, The Federal Reserve…..
    We are coming to take the Gov’t Back. Don’t give in to the theatrics going on around you. It is a distraction.

    IF the free market could take care of itself the problems would never have been created.

    Therefore when the private market fails to make society free and fair and work for the people as it must than government has the role to intervene.

    You might want to read the 1964 Civil Rights Act and discover a bit about what it was all about before you start to mangle it with other laws passed by Congress. Just thinking that might be best for you.

    Finally if I were a handicapped person in your offices I would be the first to bitch-slap you for your condescending attitude about where I should/could enter the damn building. If you do not want to treat people with respect than get out of business and become a worker for a company that does know better.

    And you wonder why the government needs to keep people like you in line???!!!

    Well I worked in journalism for a time, and also for a state legislature. I now write a blog that is akin to the OP/Ed pages of a newpaper. I note that you are not able to write about the racism of both Rand and Ron, but instead beat up on those who bring the facts to daylight.

    Typical of those who share your thoughts.

    I’m sorry you are not a journalist. You don’t know what you are talking about and you really are not that smart. You need to educate yourself on the information at hand before you write an article misleading people. You are only helping out the mainstream media and they are doing fine…………..

    Listen to what he says. He is simply stating that the only thing he didn’t like about the Civil Rights Act is the fact that the Federal Reserve Government wanted to take advantage of a crisis in that they enacted policies that to that which were forced upon the private sector.

    Meaning the government forced business to put in “elevators” and other unnecessary items in their buildings for the handicapped.

    Example: We are a corporate office with 2 stories full of employees. There are approximately 200 employees and 10 are handicapped. There are 4 entrances into the corporate building office. 1 of which is perfectly accessible for handicapped. The gov’t comes in and says you need have 3 more handicapped entrances (1+3 = 4) plus an elevator if they need to go the 2nd story. FYI you also need to make all of your bathrooms handicapped accessible as well as every entrance into the office.

    Your company spent $1,500 to make sure your handicapped employees could work with accessibility while in the corporate offices. Now you have to spend $35,000 after the gov’t came in and told you what you need to do ($1,500 – $35,000 = $33,500 YOU HAVE TO SPEND!)

    This goes for anything else you can think of.

    This is what Rand was pointing out. He believes the free market will take care of itself and the gov’t shouldn’t come in and dictate how they should run business…
