“Why is Senator Rand Paul saying this about our first black president? Here’s the Kentucky Republican in a New York times interview.
Quote, ‘the first African-American president ought to be a little more conscious of the fact of what has happened with the abuses of domestic spying. Martin Luther King was spied upon. Civil rights leaders were spied upon. Muhammad Ali was spied upon. Anti-war protesters were spied upon.’
…who is Rand Paul to make this point? A cynical use of race from some on the right. When the president talked about being sensitive to issue of race, like he said after the Trayvon Martin verdict, the right attacks him for it. But it’s interchangeable. They attack him for not talking about issues of race too. And when Rand Paul talks about being conscious of race when it comes to spying, what about Condoleezza Rice? She works for President Bush known for surveillance of U.S. citizens and where does he get off talking about race in civil rights at all. This is a man that once said he would have modified the civil rights act if he had been a senator at the time.”
