Rand Paul, Rachael Madcow and the fake outrage Part 1
I decided to wait a few days before commenting on this "shockingly overinflated story" for a reason. I wanted to make sure that I had a chance to watch the video of Rand Paul on Madcow's show. I've been hearing liberals over the last few days trying to label Rand Paul as a racist because his comments on MSNBC'S Rachael Madcow's show. Well after watching the video of his appearance on Madcow's show, I have concluded that the left has yet again, took what a Republican said out of context and is amplifying it in an attempt to tar and feather Rand with the racist label. I know liberals are for the most part not the brightest bulbs in the drawer. Who could have interrupted what Rand said as and interruption that he wanted to repeal the 1964 Civil Rights Act if he was in congress when it was drafted? In his so called interview with Madcow, he even said that he supported 9 out the 10 provisions within the Civil Rights Act. As usual, the left isn't mentioning that part of the interview. It wouldn't gel with their attack and smear campaign against him. Rand was discussing the 1964 Civil Rights Law from a "libertarian" prospective NOT from a "racist" prospective. That is what has been lost in the translation by the left on purpose. I find the fake outrage humorous bordering absurd. I truly wonder do these people actually expect to be taken seriously? The left is calling Rand Paul a racist, yet they conveniently ignore the historic fact that it was the current Democratic Senator from West Virginia Robert Byrd would led a record 83 day filibuster in 1964 in an attempt to kill the Civil Right Act all together. Once again, liberals aren't going to bring that up either. The late Barry Goldwater was another Republican libertarian who was branded as a racist. Barry didn't support the 1964 Civil Rights Act not because he was a racist. He supported the bill on moral grounds, but he believed that the states should have been the ones to implement the act. He didn't support the act on libertarian grounds. That is also one reason why liberals try to stain the term "state rights" as a seeded racist terminology even though it's not. It didn't matter that Barry Goldwater was the co founder of the Arizona chapter of the NAACP. The left didn't care that Barry wasn't a racist. All they cared about was that he didn't support the federal bill regardless of the reason, and they used that as a weapon to tar and feather him as a racist even though he was not. The 2:16 minute mark in this video says all that needs to be said about where Rand Paul stand on racism.
I'll go into detail why Rand was beyond stupid for even going on Rachel Madcow's show in first place in part 2.
