Rand Paul: “I Have Nothing Against the Nigra, If He Knows His Place”

Special Guest Column by Rand Paul:

Sure, that there Civil Rights Act of 1964 was well-intentioned and all, but it went too far. It’s far better for ninety-nine colored people to be unable to eat or buy anything, than for one inbred tobacca-spittin’ redneck to have to let a Nigra into his place of bidness if he don’t wanna.

And don’t even get me started on dadgum Americans With Disabilities Act. Just what the fuck do these people in wheelchairs want anyway? They clog up the sidewalks, they need a special bathroom with a door as big as Texas so they can fit those F$%&!#! wheelchairs through the entrance, they need a special ramp just so they can get in and out of buildings...

And if you’ve ever ridden a bus, you’re familiar with that sinking feeling you get when the bus pulls up to a stop and there’s somebody in a wheelchair waiting to get on. F&%$#!&%#!$$!!! Everything grinds to a halt for ten minutes while this slow motion wheelchair ramp extends out of the doorway so the cripple can roll up and onto the bus. Then everything grinds to a halt for another ten minutes while the ramp slooowly recoils back into the bus. And nobody else can get on or off the bus until the damn cripple has gotten into the bus and gotten himself comfortably seated. Well, I mean, he was already seated, but, you know what I’m saying.

I’m saying: Enough of this Godforsaken Liberal Big Government Nanny State meddling in our lives. The American People want Freedom! We’re taking our country back!

Any more it seems like you’re not a Real American unless you’re a Nigra, Meskin, a Chinaman or some other one of them minorities, or a homosexual, or sitting in a wheelchair all helpless like. And it ain’t right.

The hard part about believing in freedom is, uh, where was I? Wait — I like the sound of that. Can’t you just hear the steel guitars twanging in the background? The hard part about believing in freedom — I got me a country and western song here that just ain’t been written yet.

Well, I ain’t a country singer, but I know someone who is. And she got her finger on the pulse of America. Real Americans, not them blasted minorities and disabled pansies.

So I want you to give her a listen. She got something to say, and if you’re a Real American, you’re sayin' it too.

Oh come on, he is just having a bit of fun here. Not like gays,blacks or other minorities are real people with real votes or anything. All I can say is acorn has not fallen far from the tree with this guy. Maybe he should just go dolt, oh sorry Galt. Maybe look out for his slogan in the upcoming season, Yes we Klan, you'll see, I'm going to suggest it to him through his campaign site.

Kland Paul is certainly taking a lot of heat right now, but that isn't going to matter much to his fan club. Lots of inbreeding down that way, you know. And a lot of my family hails from around there, so I know of what I speak.

He's definitely squirming all over the place trying to "clarify" his position on ADA and the Civil Rights Act. I hope all these videos (like the link you've got in your next comment) go viral.

Tim: How about a black, wheelchair-bound lesbian atheist -- that would probably give Rand Paul a seizure. Might even turn him into one of those disabled people he has such contempt for.

JR: Kland Paul, LOL. The more turned off the rest of the population is, the better his inbred fans will like him. I just hope there aren't enough of them to get him elected.

Here you go. An update on Jack Conway, Paul's opponent in the fall. The guy is not waiting to get into him about his teabaggery stands. If the repubs don't start getting some moderates on board they are going to be able to shrink the party to where it can be drowned in a tea cup, never mind a bathtub like Norquist wants to do. One other thing I did notice, Paul only spoke about teabaggers, not all of the people of Kentucky. This will probably not sit well with the moderate/independents that he is going to need. I say he is toast, said it first at JR's house, I will say it here again.

Money quote comes right at the end for me, tying in the stupid, with the even more stupid that is Sister Sarah.

"Rand Paul has this tendency to get in public or get on national cable shows and feel like he wants to give me a lecture on constitutional law," said Conway. "I'm the attorney general of Kentucky. He didn't go to law school. I did. I don't need a lecture on Constitutional law from Rand Paul or Sarah Palin."

I think the federal government should pass a law that all private homes should have wheel chair access. You never know when a door to door salesman or someone collecting donations for a charity may come to your door in a wheel chair. There should be a law that you must allow anyone into your home regardless of age, race, religion, sexual orientation, etc.(as long as they are not there to harm you, of course). There should also be a law that all churches and other religious buildings should have wheel chair access, and allow membership to any and all. Yes, we need laws on top of laws so that no one anywhere ever gets discriminated against. In an ideal world, everyone, everywhere, is equal and there is no discrimination. I know of no one who is totally without some bias. Please, don't anyone insult us by saying you are completely without prejudices and biases of some sort. It would be best if government just told everyone what to do with their own private property, and what to think and say.

The attorney general of kentucky may have gone to law school, but I'll bet Rand Paul knows a whole hell of a lot more about the constitution than he does. I'll wager Paul has even read, and maybe even studied the constitution, unlike the attorney general AND Obama.

Jess: "I'm the attorney general of Kentucky. He didn't go to law school. I did. I don't need a lecture on Constitutional law from Rand Paul or Sarah Palin." Sounds like Conway told him off good. I just hope Kentucky voters will agree.

Dave: You're right, Kentucky and Pennsylvania -- 2 different animals.

Erik: Thanks for the link. I'm playing it as we speak. Rachel Maddow can sure get people to open up, and then be forced to squirm and say "er, what I meant was..."

Anonymous: Funny rant. Thing is, you missed something -- the difference between a private home and a business.

Lisa: It's one thing if somebody voted against the Civil Rights Act 45 years ago. Everyone has learned a lot since then. It's totally retarded to look back 45 years later at a law that's helped tens of millions of people, and say the law is wrong, or nitpick about "this is OK but this part isn't." All he's doing is pandering to his inbred followers.

The rest of your comment has nothing to do with the post.

Randal: He's named after either Ayn or that road atlas publisher. Wait -- the first 4 letters of your name -- OMG!!!

Demeur: Republicans keep doing this. They keep dredging up the most racist inbred elements of their party, and then they try to tuck them away and out of sight in time for the election. Sometimes the extremists get kicked to the curb, and sometimes the extremists bring down the mainstream party. I hope the latter happens this November.

Now today's snippet of wisdom from Old Ayn Rand RuPaul. President Obama is Un American for telling BP they are a bad business(paraphrasing) and going on to criticize them.

Ok here I go.. BRITISH Petroleum, working on a rig built by South Korean Hundai, leased by Transocean a Swiss company cement work built by Haliburton headquartered in Dubai and propped up by Australian number 1 butt boil Rupert Murdoch. Yeah I did my research thank you very much.

Someone, somewhere surely can see the utter stupidity of his stance on protecting BP/business, at the expense of the gulf, when this is all out right? Please tell me the voters of Kentucky are not this stupid.

T.H. I do not think I am the one who is confused. If I use my hard earned money to buy a business zoned piece of property, use my hard earned money to put up a building, and use my hard earned money, my sweat, and my time and energy to start up a business, if I pay my employees and my taxes, then I should be able to serve whom ever I want. If you don't like how I run my business, then you have the right not to patronize my business. You have the right to take your business elsewhere. Or maybe you're one of those off the wall, pie in the sky, kind of person who believes the government should own all businesses. Oh, by the way, churches and other religious buildings are not private homes. Maybe government should own them, as well.

Paul’s rant is just like Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan over 50 years ago. “I’m not prejudiced, I’m against discrimination” then both sat on their thumbs and argued why the federal government shouldn’t do anything about it. Goldwater said each state should decide and then gratefully bestow upon their citizens of color the rights already guaranteed by the 14th amendment. The Conservatives said nothing when they observed the vigilante lynching, saw what the Pleussy decision was doing, no they screamed after Brown and the Civil Rights Bill. Anon’s argument sounds like Reagan when he tried to twist legal discrimination into a new phrase “Property Owner’s rights” and constantly said about the Civil Rights bills “you can’t legislate morality” without answering when pointing out that the Jim Crow laws already did.

Paul showed his ignorance of the Constitution by trying to compare the 2nd Amendment right of a person to carry a unloaded gun (an man made inanimate object solely made for killing) with that of Blacks (American Citizens of Color) trying to use their 14th Amendment rights to sit at a Restaurant and be served. Putting the rights on guns as the rights of people yeah right!

Or trying to compare it with the 1st Amendment right of hate speech, which not only goes on today on the streets but on the radio as well. Hey! The ACLU will help!

He told Maddow that Boston was integrated in the 1820’s, Wrong! The Civil Rights act showed Boston was on the most segregated cities in America and some of us remember had the most violent confrontations to busing.

I notice he also said the Federal Government also has the right to integrate schools, does that mean he’s for busing? That was one of the sorest points in the Civil Rights era.

Let’s remember, He is a Republican, and the Republicans are ruled by former Southern Democrats (and their descendents) courted by Reagan and Nixon over 40 years ago for their solid base. They were mad at the Democrats for endorsing Civil Rights. In exchange, the party has left Civil Rights off its platform, and he is quoting the party line.

Lisa, it is true that many Democrats voted against the Civil Rights Act. They were known as the Dixiecrats. Lyndon Johnson said that passing the Civil Rights act would cost Democrats the South, and he was correct. Those same Dixiecrats switched to the Republican party and have become the GOP base.

Anon. 10:02 a.m.: If you're genuinely a Libertarian, they you understand the Constitution has already been trampled on for the last few generations, by both parties. If you think the Constitution only protects racists and large corporations that kill people through their negligence, but doesn't protect people from getting spied on and stopped on the street by police because they look "suspicious," then you're wasting your time and mine.

Jess: I saw the same news story. I don't know if Paul just wants to be a laughingstock, or if he's actually got it figured out that he'll actually win in November if every inbred voter in Kentucky votes for him.

Anon. 10:29 a.m.: If I spend my hard earned money and blood sweat and tears to buy a car, the dream car I've always wanted, then I'll be damned if some government bureaucrat is gonna tell me how fast I can go, when I have to stop, which lane I have to drive in...

Lisa: Ron Paul is the one who brought up this whole can of worms and walked right into it.

Erik: It's funny how the rightwads always say "you can't legislate morality" when it comes to actually protecting people. But when it comes to regulating victimless crimes and personal behavior -- legislate away.

Limited government for Big Business; the Spanish Inquisition for everyone else.

Rand Paul has also just said that Obama's criticism of BP is "un-American". WTF? BP knew they hadn't done the inspections, that there could be trouble ahead, and their greed and stupidity has just caused an environmental disaster of monumental proportions. Talk about un-American, un-Christian, etc. -- and Paul is the poster boy. What an absolute asshole.

It doesn't surprise me a bit that he has made those ridiculous remarks about the Civil Rights legislation -- what continues to surprise me is how many really stupid people there must be in America just ready to lap up whatever he spews.

And if that means you, Lisa, then so be it.

Lisa Gotchya games, really this is what you come up with? He thought he could go on Maddow's show as he has in the past, and pull wool over her eyes. Unfortunately for him, she has turned out to be a really good fact checker and has a nice bullshit detector, with her research team.

This had already been reported by the Louisville Courier paper when he did an interview there. It did not get any attention till he decided wrongly to go on her show and here is just a snippet for you. The headline they used was , republican senate race, a dismal choice. Here is the link to the whole article for yourself. Oh and this particular paper from what I have seen, tilts to favor republicans. Take that for what it is worth.

"Much of what the Republican Senate candidate supports, it wrote, "is repulsive to people in the mainstream," including "an unacceptable view of civil rights"

http://www.courier-journal.com/article/20100425/OPINION01/4250319/Editorial-%7C-In-Republican-Senate-race-a-dismal-choice

National media did not pick this up IMO because they are lazy and compacent just wanting the horse race. Particularly in the case of Fox News. I won't get my news from there, so you can also take that for what it is worth. I really wish you would do research before coming back with just silly "the left is using gotchya..." Try do your own research so you don't appear so very uninformed ok? Kthx

So Jess Maddow wanted to interview him to do what? Coddle him?

Just like CNN didn't show the Wolfe Blitzer interview with Calderone because outside of the wimps in DC he actually grew a pair and called him a hypocrite.
Only it wasn't lazy and complacent it was purposeful.Because that right wing media didn't ant to expose yours truly and the democrats for cheering for his critique of our laws.

I am sure The Huffpo won't be showing you that either.

"Rand Paul has also just said that Obama's criticism of BP is "un-American".

Yes it was especially since they lobbied Obama and Obama was the one who gave them a pass on the inspection.

Not that I agree, but you do realize your condemnation of "politicians in general" makes a really damning statement about American voters in general, don't you? In our democracy they're two sides of the same coin,

I daresay politicians in general go to work five days a week trying to do what they think is best for the people they represent, and do that more faithfully and honestly, and with less collateral damage to innocent third parties, than most CEO's of major corporations do.

Lisa, you are the one saying he is getting gotchya questions, where are they? Is that like when Bible Spice was asked what is the Bush Doctrine or what do you read and couldn't answer the questions intelligently? You know, when digging a hole, at some point it may be useful to stop, otherwise the possibility is there a person could end up in Australia or China. She asked him to explain what his position was, because his local paper asked him and thought his answer was repulsive to the majority of people. Hey if you(generic) liked his answer and you are all for what he stands for, more power to you. Just means that moderates and people with sense will turn away from it, which is good for the country. We do not need to go backwards to days when we were segregated. I'll tell you what, if it came to that, I would be getting the fire hose and dogs set about me, because I would stand with my brown brothers and sisters, fighting right there with them. What is funny to me, the republicans have coopted the teabaggers, are happy to have them vote for them but want to spin this away, like it is nothing. The republicans now own this racism this hatred for the "other" and it will hurt the party in the long run. Just means sensible people will be taking another look at the democrats which is fine by me.

He went on Maddow's show when he announced he would be running for the seat, so he probably figured she was a safe interview, like he would have gotten at that bastion of fair and balanced Fox.

WTF does Calderon have to do with any of the electoral process in America? Please keep on topic, I know it's hard but try.

You just don't get it do you? BP is not an American company, they did this for profit at the expense of life and the eco system in the region, regardless, criticizing businesses that are screwing with the country, what he is supposed to sit back and take it like Bush the lesser was doing de regulating everything? Oh HELL NO!! Leave that for the secret energy task forces that were held back when Cheney was president shall we?

I don't do Huffpo, unless someone gives me a link I can verify elsewhere. So I have no idea what they would be saying about it. If you know, maybe you should be linking for us so we can see where you get your information.

I need the facts on Obama gave them a pass on the inspection, because nowhere have I seen that, even on conservative sites like Newsmax or Townhall or anywhere like that. I call bullshit on that, given that there have been multiple accounts of BP wanting things done in the quickest way possible, regardless of the safety requirements. MMS, still has many of the same people that were there under Bush, Katz just resigning, had been there since 2003/2004? so he was one of those burrowed in the dept, same thing with DoJ and other departments being set up and politicized. Remember one of the questions people were asked by Monica Goodling, who testified she did not know she could not ask was, what political party do you belong to.

You really don't think after just almost 2 yrs in office, PO could get rid of all the burrowed career civil servants that have been put in place since the Reagan, Bush1 and Bush the lesser have been in office do you? That is 20+ yrs of cronyism and lackeys in positions. Please enlighten us with links or I myself, will just continue thinking you are pulling things out of your ass to put a word salad together, thinking it will satisfy people reading here. Thanks in advance for what I hope is your cooperation.
