In an all too typical move by the rabid reactionary Republicans who believe the only future for their obsolete political party lies in a return to the intolerant, racist past, the obsolete leadership of the clan of the elephant is promoting another failure for office — Rand Paul, the lackluster and racially-tinged Kentucky Senator and son of thrice-failed Presidential candidate Ron Paul.
Paul — who is following in his father’s retarded habits of playing on the GOP’s inbred hatred of minorities, gays and progress — is touted as the GOP’s primary hope for a return to the White House in 2016.
If Rand Paul is the hope of the GOP, then hopelessness is the result. Like most regressive right wingers who dominate the party Paul may appeal to hardcore racists in Kentucky but — like his father — he will lack the appeal to succeed in a far more demanding national electorate.
Is Rand Paul as racist as his former Texas Congressman father? Probably. He has stated publicly that restaurant owners should be allowed to refuse service to minorities and he has a long, sordid history of backing legislation that targets and penalizes those are less than white.
The unwashed and brain dead flock who claim allegiance to Paul and his father claim both are strict Constitutionalists who represent the future of the nation. Is so, that future is warped and repressive. Both want laws that laughingly consider any unborn festus as human being, amendments that limit the rights of gays to marry and other equally repressive laws that strip humans of rights and individuality.
If Rand Paul represents the future of the Republican Party then the party deservedly has no future. If the GOP rallies around this miscreant then it should — and most likely will — descend into a well-deserved pit of political oblivion — one that has already consumed other failures like Ron Paul, David Duke, George Wallace, and those who deserve to disappear into the morass..
But while these bastions of inbred Republican racism, homophobia and intolerance will thankfully disappear from the political landscape, the hardcore right wingers will look for another standard bearer for a return to a past that is best forgotten and buried.
Racism — like gonorrhea and diarrhea — will remain as plagues in this country and will continue to find a home in the Republican party.
