Fox: Dems have unearthed video of Rand Paul condemning the 1965 Civil Rights Act
Fox Special Alert | 5/20/10

Posted on 05/20/2010 3:28:26 PM PDT by pabianice

If true, he's a gonner. If not, the Libs still get to smear him. Folks, there's not gonna be any Repub capture of the Congress this year. Obama's gangsters are just warming up with the estimated $ 600M slush fund they have for November.

He doesn’t seem old enough to have a tape from 1965 condemning the civil rights law . . . what was he about 8 years old then.

Geez, you don’t even have a link and are willing to call the fall elections for the Dems? Perhaps you should have a nice cup of camomile tea?

Parts of the Civil Rights Act should be enshrined in gold. Other parts should be cut and forgotten.

If such a video exists, it needs to be released.

Unearthed? The stuff from Maddow’s show?

If that’s what you’re referring to, it’s simply a statement to his Libertarian streak.

He can’t be more than 4 or 5 in 1965!

6 months is a lifetime in politics. Typical of libs to blow their wad early. The only thing would be if this is not the worst they’ve found. THAT would be Rands death knell?

Big deal. 95% of voters couldn’t tell you what the Civil Rights Act is.

He said that he was for the commercial desegregation laws but concerned about private businesses being forced and that he would have tried to find a compromise if he’d had to vote on the bill.

I guess Fox is now totally in bed with the Lib Media. Rand Paul has fully explained his views on how he feels about civil rights.

The one thing I always liked about both Dr Paul’s is that they expose how far left the GOP has gone.

That may be the fascist spin, but I’ll bet he was lamenting ‘some of’ the ill effects of the 65 Civil Rights act on Black Families and other intended benefactors.

Still, you can’t damn the fascists for not being able to think beyond the level of a fifth grader. Sorry fifth graders, even you know better than this.

He could have made the comments yesterday about a 1965 law.

It didn’t have to be in 1965.

Here's some new info.

His original quote was kind of clumsy but I understood what he said. Basically, while all conservatives are against discrimination, a private business should be able to deny service to anyone for any reason, or else it's not a private business but a government-run business.

Sen Byrd filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act, so he must have thought it was illegal as well. And what happened to Sen Byrd?

Fox (News Corp) has Saudi ownership. Supposedly 5 to 10% but probably a lot more. Murdoch probably ha a line of credit of $10 billion from the Saudis as long as he follows the ISlamification script. He did in the UK.

Here's the thing. Fox hates the Pauls. They mocked father Ron Paul back during the presidential debates and tried to exclude him from the NH debate. Fox doesn't like the Pauls' brand of traditional, old-right conservatism. So it's no surprise to see them dumping on Rand.

I’m not sure that this will get much traction. Blacks are already against anyone with an “R”. Repeating the “macaca” moment?

-—”Basically, while all conservatives are against discrimination, a private business should be able to deny service to anyone for any reason, or else it's not a private business but a government-run business.”-—

Yeah, I saw that, too. It was clumsy, though.

Unfortunately, it's going to sting a little; hopefully, they are already prepared to douse this fire. Whatever Freepers think, this won't get brushed-away by everyone. It will matter to some, and not JUST Liberals.

Give me a break. This individual is one candidate for Senate in KY. It has nothing to do with retaking the House, even if his campaign did implode.

Well, his biggest mistake was going on Maddow’s show. One thing about the Pauls is that they don’t understand how liberally biased the news media is. One FReeper suggested that Rand should avoid national media and just field questions from state and local affiliates.

Yeah, Libertarian types seem to think Liberals are going to hold their fire just a little when they come on their shows.

Learn your lessons early, Rand. The media is not Libertarian, despite their Bullsh** claims to be — they're LIBERAL, and they hate you.

What we had here was a Republican candidate saying what he really thought, without any concessions to political correctness, and with no concern to trim his views for the MSM.

Pardon my naivete, but I thought that was a good thing,

So the Democrats’ strategy here is, literally, “Rand Paul hates blacks?”

I’m keeping hope alive that Breitbart will do as he threatened and release the rest of O’Keefe’s ACORN sting videos just in time for the November elections. He said it goes all the way to the top.
