Wah! That girl’s beating me up!
Rand Paul lashed out at the “loony left” for pressing him on his view of the 1964 Civil Rights Act in an interview with Laura Ingraham this morning.
“I’ve never really favored any change in the Civil Rights Act,” he said. “They seem to have unleashed some of the loony left on me.”
Paul called the Civil Rights Act “settled” but suggested he does view federal regulation of private business on matters of racial discrimination as fundamentally unconstitutional.
So, he’s never really favored any change in the 1964 Civil Rights Act, but he still can’t say he would have voted for it. And does he think businesses in Kentucky should be able to keep the blacks out, which is why he wouldn’t have voted for it.
Why is the left being so mean?
