Rand Paul's Offensive Syria Remark
Republicans have been allowed to say racist shit for so long. Case in point is Senator Rand Paul on Meet the Press. Paul's reasoning for why the United States should not take military action on Syria is because Paul believes Bashar al-Assad is only killing Muslims.
“I don’t see American interests involved on either side of this Syrian war. I see [Bashar] Assad, who has protected Christians for a number of decades, and Islamic rebels on the other side who have been attacking Christians,” Paul said.Paul comes from the Glenn Reynolds libertarian school of genocide against all Muslims. Fighting the entire Muslim population on the planet is impossible. The only way this makes sense is when people like Paul and Reynolds view national security through their racist beliefs. This other quote from MTP tips Paul's hand.
"I think the Islamic rebels winning is a bad ide for the Christians, and all of a sudden we'll have another Islamic state where Christians are persecuted," Paul said on NBC's "Meet the Press.Paul has publicly voiced his opposition to the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, and the Fair Housing Act. Paul hired neo-Confederate Jack Hunter to write his biography. It is certainly fair to question Paul's bizarre racial views.
