15. Damn, Rand Paul is a bona fide racist like his dad, Ron.. and he lies about it.. which is par for

for his course to use another sport's analogy.

"Strike one was in 2009 when Rand Paul's Senate campaign spokesperson was forced to resign over a horribly racist comment and historical image of a lynching -- I'm not making that up -- posted by a friend of his on his MySpace wall on Martin Luther King weekend, then allowed to remain for almost two years," Hayes said.

Like arcane says in this thread.. "Rand Paul talks out of both side of his ass."

Rand Paul falsely claims he supports Civil and Voting Rights Acts

But Paul’s previous statements on these topics cast serious doubts on his rhetoric this morning…

Rand Paul on the Voting Rights Act: “It was a time in our country when the color of your skin did need to factor into voting, but we’ve really gotten beyond that now. We have an African-American president.” [Newsmax, 6/25/13] Stupid.

Rand Paul on the Civil Rights Act: “I think it’s a bad business decision to exclude anybody from your restaurant, but, at the same time, I do believe in private ownership.” [Editorial Board, Louisville Courier-Journal, April 2010]

What a freaking surprise! Not.

Thank you for the article, she.. very important to have this information on Rand Paul.. cause like it says in your link..

"Though Paul has drawn favor from liberals for his defense of civil liberties and opposition to America's wars, the MSNBC host argued on Tuesday night's installment of "All In With Chris Hayes" that it's impossible to take him seriously after the revelation that one of his aides used to be a neo-Confederate activist."
