I have officially taken this guy off my list for consideration for 2016! Not only did Rand Paul meet with Al Sharpton last week to pander on the issue of the supposed unfair treatment of blacks at the hands of our Cops, which falls right into Sharpton’s race-baiting narrative, but he seemingly joined the Anarchists in Ferguson in believing the lie that the Michael Brown shooting had something to do with race!
Apparently, this well-educated Doctor and U.S. Senator is another knee-jerk ignoramus, who hasn’t studied the facts or the evidence in this case!
Rand Paul has decided to join the emotional protesters in Ferguson in believing, without any evidence, that Darren Wilson, the Police Officer who lawfully shot Michael Brown out of self-defense, was excessive in his response that day. This is what Paul recently wrote: “If I had been told to get out of the street as a teenager, there would have been a distinct possibility that I might have smarted off. But, I wouldn’t have expected to be shot.”
As Ben Shapiro points out and as the evidence has shown, Michael Brown did way more than just smart-off to a Police Officer, he actually attempted to assault Officer Wilson and overtake his weapon!
Rand Paul obviously needs to get his facts in order before he joins racists like Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan in perpetuating myths and lies about Officer Wilson, who a Grand Jury found did NOTHING unlawful under the color of authority that day in Ferguson!
These irresponsible statements and actions by this potential Presidential candidate, in order to shave 5% off a 95% black turn-out for the Democrats in the next Presidential election, is a clear pandering move and it only exacerbates racial divisions and plays right into the hands of the Left!
These comments are in addition to Paul’s previous statements implying that our Criminal Justice System was racist and also siding with Left once again on the issue of Voter I.D!
I think it’s safe to say that Senator Rand Paul has taken a turn for the worse since he entered Washington four years ago. Once a solid Constitutional Conservative, who ran strongly on Tea Party values, has now turned into a panderer to the far-Left and he’s also a Mitch McConnell supporter, endorsing him over his much more conservative Tea Party challenger in the Kentucky Senate primary earlier this year!
We also need to remember that Paul joined the Democrats in supporting Obama’s anti-Semitic Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and he seems to be open to Amnesty for illegals!
As the 2016 GOP Presidential nomination process starts taking shape in the Summer and Fall, one candidate that I’ve already decided is no longer an acceptable choice in my mind is Senator Rand Paul!
I think Republicans can do much better than this guy! From my perspective, folks like Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and Marco Rubio have all demonstrated in one way or another a willingness to join the Left on key issues that undermine our Constitutional Republic!
The Republican Party would be foolish to nominate a person who agrees more with Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren on important issues than they do with their own base!
Time will only tell if Rand Paul will be significantly hurt by these pandering acts or if he’ll conveniently keep these views under wrap while traveling through Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina later next year.
I for one will continue to remind folks of Paul’s views on these issues, if he does throw his hat in the ring! I encourage folks to keep these issues in mind as we move towards this important primary process, set to begin in about nine months. Read below!
