Rand Paul Racist, Just Like His Father Ron Paul
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.
