Rand Paul: “You Go to a Republican Event and It’s All White People”
Apparently, we’re now supposed to forget that Rand Paul once said he would have opposed the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
And we’re not supposed to draw the obvious conclusion that he’s trying to capitalize on the Bundy Ranch mess, either.
Making the GOP slightly more libertarian is just part of Paul’s recent mission to broaden the Republican Party. The senator reiterated his message that it also needs to look different in terms of race and age.
“You go to a Republican event and it’s all white people—not because we’re excluding anybody, but because we just haven’t done a good enough job encouraging people to come into our party.”
Oh no. No, no, no. It’s not because they’ve excluded anybody. What would ever give anyone that idea?
Outreach, people. Outreach.
