Rand Paul, the winner of the Kentucky Republican primary is a prime example as to why minority voter turnout is important in non-Presidential races.
After his win, Paul delivered a message from his tea party supporters. That message is that the tea party wants their government back.
Later Paul made it clear that he has issues with the Civil Rights Act as it relates to private businesses. When asked if he felt it was okay to have segregated lunch counters, Paul blew smoke out of his ass by trying to focus the right to carry a gun inside a private restaurant. On Rachel Maddow he was asked in a way that only required a yes or no answer, and he continued his smoke blowing tactics which strongly suggest that Mr. Rand Paul opposes the the civil rights act as it relates to public accommodations that are operated as private enterprises, and as a U.S. Senator would not vote to extend it.
Unfortunately minorities in this country which includes African Americans, Latinos, Jews and women must depend on this act to avoid being discriminated against because of their protected class. This also extends to our gay brothers and sisters.
Rand Paul is supported by the Tea Party who has already recommended going back to literacy test as a way to qualify to vote. It is clear that minority’s civil rights are not supported by the tea party. In fact minority civil rights are threatened by tea party members who crusade around the country in an attempt to dip their archaic superiority ideology down the throats of people who differ in skin tone, language, religion and sexual preference.
Minorities in Kentucky might want to participate in the November election and send Rand Paul and his tea party a message:
This too is our country and we’re not going back to the black codes or the Jim Crow days and ways. We’re not swallowing your superiority philosophy. We’re just not having it!
Above are the interviews of Rand by NPR and Rachel Maddow on the issue of civil rights. Take a look and see if you agree.
