PAUL: Well, there's 10 -- there's 10 different -- there's 10 different titles, you know, to the Civil Rights Act, and nine out of 10 deal with public institutions. And I'm absolutely in favor of; one deals with private institutions, and had I been around, I would have tried to modify that.But this is pure hypocrisy on the part of Maddow and the corrupt institutional racism she herself unquestioningly rubber stamps.
But you know, the other thing about legislation -- and this is why it's a little hard to say exactly where you are sometimes, is that when you support nine out of 10 things in a good piece of legislation, do you vote for it or against it? And I think, sometimes, those are difficult situation...
MADDOW: The reason that this is something that I'm not letting go even though I now realize it would make the conversation more comfortable to move on to other things and I think this is going to be a focus for national attention on you, I guess until there's at least clarity on it, is that issue of the tenth, not the nine, but the tenth out of the 10 portions -- proportions of the -- the tenth of the Civil Rights Act that you would want to have discussions about. As I understand it, what you`re saying, that's the portion of the Civil Rights Act that said you can't actually have segregated lunch counters here at your private business.
PAUL: Well, the interesting thing is, is that there's nothing right now to prevent a lot of re-segregating. We had a lot of it over the last 30 or 40 years.
What I would say is that we did some very important things in the '60s that I'm all in favor of and that was desegregating the schools, desegregating public transportation, use public roads and public monopolies, desegregating public water fountains.
MADDOW: How about desegregating lunch counters? Lunch counters. Walgreen's lunch counters, were you in favor of that? Possibly? Because the government got involved?
PAUL: Right. Well, what it gets into is, is that then if you decide that restaurants are publicly owned and not privately owned, then do you say that you should have the right to bring your gun into a restaurant, even though the owner of the restaurant says, well, no, we don't want to have guns in here.
The bar says we don't want to have guns in here, because people might drink and start fighting and shoot each other. Does the owner of the restaurant own his restaurant? Or does the government own his restaurant?
These are important philosophical debates but not very practical discussion. And I think we can make something out of this --
MADDOW: Well, it's pretty practical to people who were -- had their life nearly beaten out of them trying to desegregate Walgreen's lunch counters despite these esoteric debates about gun ownership. This is not a hypothetical, Dr. Paul.
First of all, the Democrat Party, whose political perspective and interests Maddow and MSNBC essentially represent, is institutionally racist itself. Here is what I've written (in comment) on a previous post about this problem:
In the 111th Congress, there are a total of 257 Democrats in the House. Thirty-one of them are Jewish (all Congressional Jews are Democrats except for Eric Cantor, the only Jewish Republican). That's nearly 12%. (Again, Jews comprise less than 2% of the country).So clearly, by the standard of equal representation according to race that the Statists profess to subscribe to in their blanket support for the Civil Rights Act regiment, Maddow's team has constructed some institutional barriers to black and Hispanic advancement in the Democrat Party leadership in favor of a Jewish leadership that can only be described as racist.
And the ratio is even more out of balance in the Senate, where there are a total 57 Democrats, plus two "Independents" that caucus with the Democrats. Of that total of 59 Senators, 13 are Jewish -- an astounding 22%.
How many black U.S. Senators are there? Only one: Roland Burris, the only black in the entire Senate, even though African-Americans comprise over 12% of the country (and a lot higher percentage than that of loyal Democratic Party voters).
So it seems the Jewish supremacist Democrats have pulled a bait-and-switch on the "people of color" who routinely provide a big chunk of their votes, running as the party of diversity, equality and racial justice, yet promoting Jews (every one of which in Congress is a Zionist) in hugely disproportionate numbers to the highest levels of national office, and limiting blacks and Hispanics to the Capitol's service entrances.
Secondly, the Democrat Party itself routinely votes billions in essentially unconditional financial and military aid to Israel, and provides it nearly unconditional political support at the UN and elsewhere around the world. Israel, by nearly all objective accounts is an institutionally racist, segregationist, Jewish supremacists state that viciously discriminates against non-Jews in general and Palestinians in particular in ways that make the Jim Crow South look like a walk in the park, and often enforces this discrimination by carrying out State-organized murder, both in Israel proper and in the occupied territories.
Thirdly, what is Rachel Maddow's position on Israel's institutional discrimination and mass murder? She's all for it. Here is a snippet from another post I wrote specifically on Maddow, documenting the revelation of her Jewish supremacist bigotry as epitomized by her support for Israel's ruthless attack on Gaza in the winter of 2008/09:
...recall Maddow's reaction at the height of Israel's atrocities, when it was carrying out the butchering of defenseless women and children in what the United Nations would later find to be war crimes, the phony "humanitarian" Maddow set up her whitewash of the atrocities with standard hasbara (Zionist "explanation" propaganda) that Israel is "a tiny country, a Jewish state, right smack dab in the middle of the Arab world, surrounded on all sides by Arab nations, many of whom do not recognize Israel's right to exist."So Maddow supports both the de-facto institutional racism in the Democrat Party, and the de-jure institutional racism of Israel (backed by mass murder), but has the chutzpah to pass judgement on Rand Paul for raising questions about how one of the provisions of the Civil Rights Act conflicts with private property rights? Not only that, but she's getting away with her hypocrisy virtually unchallenged? The Statist masters of agitprop and public manipulation clearly have an increasingly totalitarian grip on the political dialogue in this country.
What any of this had to do with the Jewish state's butchering of Palestinian women and children is totally irrelevant, other than as means to, again, justify the Zionist ideology and its abuses by presenting what are clear bullying, police state offensives as mere defensive measures taken to "protect" a "vulnerable" population of historical "victims."
Watch Maddow and her Zionist-ideology hasbara here (and keep in mind that as she spoke, Palestinians women and children were being massacred in Gaza by the Israeli authoritarians) and decide for yourself whether this despicable, saccharin-sweet, "politically correct police state" shrew is an ideological Zionist or not:

While there is no denying MSNBC's hypocrisy (note there are no people of color on air anchoring, or holding significant positions reporting) this type of 'defense' of Rand Paul does far more harm than good.
To be blunt, this is the only way Rand Paul WON'T WIN a landslide in November.
Screeching 'da joooooooos' sheesh....is this actually a defense of Paul or designed to get him put into the 'kook's kook' catagory held by his father?

"Screeching 'da joooooooos' sheesh....is this actually a defense of Paul or designed to get him put into the 'kook's kook' catagory held by his father?"
If it was that easy to defeat Paul and his ideas, Leftist and/or neocon operatives and agent provocateurs would have done it by now.
This is about the Jewish supremacist double standards of Statist liberalism (and its right-wing twin, neoconservatism).
The days of screeching "anti-Semitism" every time issues like this are raised are as anachronistic as accusing opponents of Barack Obama of being ipso-facto racists for opposing his agenda.
Welcome to the wild, wild West of the Internet. The politically correct MSM gatekeepers/censors are dying out. Don't bother trying to step into their shoes. It won't work.

Get over yourself, newbie....(laughing).
I suggest you make such grand statements to somebody that hasn't been involved in internet political forums for the past decade. They might be impressed. I'm not.
The views stated above in your article are the only way Rand Paul loses in November. Its my hope he doesn't hold those views, because if he does he's going to be defined by his opposition as even more of a kook than his father.
I don't have any investment in him, beyond wanting that seat caucusing with the GOP to block this administration. That stated, if he comes out with the above LUNACY he deserves to lose, and I hope he does.
We saw enough of that shit in the last century.

"We saw enough of that shit in the last century."
Are you referring to Jewish Bolshevism, which murdered millions, or Nazism, its antithesis, which also murdered millions? Either way, libertarianism has nothing to do with either, unlike neoconservatism and Zionism.
Which of those do you subscribe to?
Badeye: "This kind of crap hurts Rand Paul. If you don't see this, you aren't very astute politically. If you do see this, then you just don't want him to win the election come November."
Do I think the Rand Paul camp should go after the Statist liberals and neocons currently self-righteously attacking him over his supposed social racism when they themselves are tenacious supporters of the most vicious institutional racism both domestically and abroad with their unconditional support for Zionism? No, because most Americans aren't ready yet to divorce themselves from Jewish supremacism, so the issue can be easily demagogued (just like the racial issue, but even more so). Thus now isn't the time. But that doesn't mean others outside of the Rand Paul camp can't attack Statist liberals and neocons for their rank hypocrisy, undermine their self-righteous poses, and discredit their moral authority to pass judgment on anyone.
I’m not part of Rand Paul’s campaign; I’m just engaging in free speech -- which anti-American neocons and Statist liberals despise, hence their plans for “hate” laws, which pseudo-conservatives like the Bushcons will probably roll over for.
