What the hell is wrong with you people? Rand Paul is a sociopath, a psychopath, a liar and a fraud. His “filibuster” was a political stunt – nothing more. You’re giving liberals a bad name by giving this dangerous worm credit for anything more than being a self-serving madman. Rand Paul doesn’t give a crap about the Constitution – Rand Paul, like all libertarians cares only about himself. He’s a smarmy jerk who opposes civil rights, and women’s rights. He said that businesses should be allowed to deny people service based on the color of their skin. He voted against the Violence Against Women Act. Seriously. F*ck Rand Paul.
Arianna Huffington said last night on Real Time With Bill Maher,
“I want to defend Rand Paul…I think what Rand Paul did was fantastic…What he did was incredibly important. First of all, it completely scrambled that right-left way of looking at politics.”
Excuse me, but are you out of your mind? Rand Paul didn’t scramble anything but your brain, apparently.
Bill Maher tried to bring the conversation back saying,
“That’s not to say all drone attacks are bad. You know, some people do need killing. It’s like what I say about the death penalty, let’s just kill the right people.”
You’re killing me, Bill. Please. Just. Stop.
Van Jones, in an op-ed column on CNN.com correctly labeled Rand Paul as a civil rights villain:
“The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s successful strategy was to force the federal government to intercede not just with states, but also private businesses that denied equal treatment. Paul would have robbed King’s strategy of its teeth, because he does not believe the commerce clause of the U.S. Constitution grants the federal government the right to protect individuals from racial discrimination in the marketplace. In fact, he once said businesses should be able to turn people away based on the color of their skin.
Also, please do not get me started on his votes against the Violence Against Women Act. Nor on his opposition to a woman’s right to make private medical decisions. Nor on his desire to cut Social Security and Medicare, while preserving tax loopholes for the wealthiest people ever born.”
Let’s not forget who and what Rand Paul is. He’s a selfish greedy Ayn Rand disciple. He’s an appalling failure as a human being. He doesn’t deserve credit from any liberal for any of his self-serving grandiose bull! He deserves to be isolated, and removed from the halls of power before he does real damage to this country.
