And you can quote me on that.
We're really not allowed to say this, of course. By the official standards of our political discourse, the only racists in America today are, ya know, "the blacks
." But Paul can't just get a free pass on this
. A southern white man of his age has no excuse when it comes to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. If you claim that it was "totalitarian" for the federal government to ban discrimination by private businesses, while Jim Crow was merely a reasonable exercise of a businessman's "freedom," you are a sick, twisted son of a bitch. Paul has a long history of racist sympathies, including the race-mongering of his own Ron Paul Newsletter
and his longstanding ties to the neo-Confederate von Mises Institute. Such behavior may be forgivable for ideologically-minded adolescents and undergrads who, by definition, tend to lack perspective on reality. But at Paul's age? No charity. In the South, "I'm a Libertarian" has long been polite code for "racist." What were
all those tyrannical federal interventions about anyway?
Need more proof? According to little Paul (the Senator), providing poor people--and black people--health insurance means you support "slavery
." Because, in Obama's America, the real slaves are rich, white doctors. Like Rand Paul.
Sick. Twisted. Son. Of. A. Bitch.
