  •  About Rand Paul's white supremacist pals... (6+ / 0-)

    I think Spaghetti Lee over at Balloon Juice said it best.

    It’s amazing how, by sheer cosmic coincidence, the non-racist, only-concerned-with-the-size-of-government Paul family has managed to attract so many anti-Semites, neo-confederates, white supremacists, and other such characters as valued friends and advisors. Man, some guys just can’t catch a break, you know?
    And I also think Dave Weigel is correct when he questioned if this would actually be a negative for Rand Paul.  Y'all may know from my posting history that I've had a long history dealing with Ron Paul fans that I know.

    I remember in late 2011 debating the racist Ron Paul newsletters with some of my friends who were Ron Paul supporters, and who were minorities themselves (female and Muslim), and even they were brushing it off as if it were nothing, making every excuse in the Ron Paul playbook.  They had been completely blinded by his “awesomeness” that they couldn’t see what was right in front of their faces, and I don’t think a damn thing has changed.

    This story may resonate among us non-Paulbots, but don’t expect it to do anything to the “Liberty” movement.
