In an interview with status quo apologist Chris Mathews, libertarian Ron Paul made it clear that he is a lot more like his business firster son Rand than his own apologists like to admit.
About a year ago while Rand was running for his entitled position in the senate (“entitled” because his DADDY spent his entire career on the government dime, so of course Rand gets his seat as well) he went on the Rachel Maddow Show (another status quo apologist) and refused to say he would have voted for the civil rights act back in ’64.
Daddy did that one better.
Back then, while Rand was meeting with AIPAC and various Neocons promising them he would do the right thing once he started getting his government check, everyone was saying that Rand was not like his father. That he was somehow different, somehow more neoliberal than his more ethical pa.
Not true. Ron’s interview with Chris goes quite a bit further.
During his May 13th interview, Ron let on that he thinks the Civil Rights Act of 1964 should be repealed and he even suggested that as a libertarian, they all want to repeal that law. His argument is that the mythological invisible hand of the “free market” would keep people from being racist and putting restrictions on the kinds of people they serve at their various establishments. It’s a ridiculous claim especially in light of the climate right now toward Muslims.
But again, it’s just another distraction.. another abortion debate to distract people from what is really going on in this country. Ron Paul would never be elected even though he is the embodiment of the neoliberal IMF based revolution taking place in this country right now. He is anti-worker’s rights, anti-civil rights, anti-Social Security, anti-Medicare. He’s against “big government” just so long as it stays big enough to employ all his children who seem to have a birth right to those government checks for life.
Here’s the interview. I am sure the Paul apologists will be all over this one. Get set for the “revolution” folks.
