Tea Party candidate Rand Paul, son of Ron Paul named after libertarian icon, Ayn Rand, is currently under fire for taking a position opposing the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and stating that he believes that privately owned businesses have the right to segregate. His position is the same exact position of his father, the Republican Congressman from Texas. Paul was the only member of congress to vote against honoring the 1964 Civil Rights bills on its 40th anniversary.

While both father and son may give ideological reasons for opposing the 1964 Civil Rights act, there is clear evidence of both racism and hypocrisy in both father and son. Rand Paul had issues with one of his spokesmen, Christopher Hightower, who wrote several racist comments on his Myspace page, including “Happy Nigger Day” on Martin Luther King Day with a picture of an African American being lynched. Ron Paul has also had his fair share of racists who have worked for his campaign.

OPINION: Ron Paul Is A White Supremacist | News One

Both Ron Paul and his son have very strong support in the white supremacist community.  Not only did Ron Paul oppose the Civil Rights Act of 1964, but he opposed the Civil War. While both will deny being a racist  and state that they come from political or ideological reasons rather than racial onea, the past writings of Ron Paul and the supporters of both Ron and Rand tell a different story.Ron Paul’s racist newsletters portray and ideology of hatred towards African Americans, including Martin Luther King.

Ron Paul’s Racist Newsletters Revealed | News One

Both father and son are very good at dodging questions about their racism and changing the subject rather than directly answering questions directly. Both are not free thinking Libertarians but right wing extremist from the John Birch Society, who are also known as the intellectual wing of the Klu Klux Klan. They are trying to hide their racist views to gain mainstream votes while holding on tightly to their racist white supporters and ideals.
