Rand Paul thinks you being a 2nd Class Citizen - in the laws of the land - is quite ok.

In a meeting with the Editorial Board of the Louisville Courier Journal, Republican Candidate for the United States Senate, Rand Paul, said he wouldn't have voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

This is the teabaggers' boy, y'all.

He wouldn't have voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

They are who we thought they were. Plain and simple.

Rand Paul is as much a racist as his father is.

He can talk all the bullshyt he wants to about 'commerce clauses', but at the end of the day, he's a proponent of STATES RIGHTS, and in his world, I guess my families in Mississippi and Tennessee just IMAGINED that they were oppressed by the foot of JIM CROW for nearly 100 years.

IF you say that you wouldn't have voted for making me a 1st Class Citizen in the laws of this land, then you are saying that it's ok that I don't have those rights. I consider that non-negotiable, and you a racist.

Watch him bob and weave on the Rachel Maddow Show.

Rand Paul Wants To Abolish The Americans With Disabilities Act, Citing Fairness ‘To The Business Owner’


U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul (R-KY), a darling of the tea party movement, has gained notoriety for his extreme views and close relationships with fringe leaders like Alex Jones. Part of Paul’s appeal has been his supposed support of individuals over large interests, like the government. But Paul appeared to reveal his true priorities during an interview with the candidate in Lexington over the weekend.

Paul was asked whether he supports the Americans with Disabilities Act, the landmark 1990 legislation that established a prohibition of discrimination on the basis of disability. Paul said he advocates local governments to decide whether disabled individuals deserve rights.

He has been working overtime to try to pull back his comments.

Too late. He has already revealed his racism.

And he seems to have no clue about the difference between private property vs. public accommodations. He is either ignorant to what is going on... or he is trying to play with words to justify Jim Crow. He doesn't seem to understand that even on private property, public accommodations have to be non-discriminatory based on race. Private property rights, particularly in the area of public commerce, cannot be used as a cover to discriminate. This was settled almost half a century ago... and you mean to tell me that he doesn't have a clue? What did he think the Freedom Rides and the Lunch Counter protests were all about? Sure they were about much more than breaking down barriers of discrimination in public accommodations, but that was a big part of it.

Amazing.

He basically suggested that we go back to Jim Crow... with everything separate.... restrooms, hotels, restaurants, movie theaters, private interstate bus service, train service, etc etc.

It seems that every few days a Tea Partier does something like this... yet everyone is in denial regarding what they are all about.

I wonder what these Black idiots who follow these clowns think about this. I'm sure they are still in denial and may even defend it.
