More on Rand Paul and the Civil Rights Act
I think Ace nails it, not only was Paul’s answer stupid, but it was historically incorrect, meanwhile the attempts to portray Paul’s answer as some sort of principled libertarian stand continue. It isn’t, it may be a libertarian stand but it certainly isn’t principled. That said I am not going to accuse Paul of racism, I have no evidence of that, just stupidity. As has been pointed out in various other places, he should have been prepared for this question, it has been asked of him before.
One thing that amuses me is people becoming
outraged upset (outraged was too strong a word) over the attempt to smear Paul as a racist when after all it’s just politics.
