Rand Paul: “Let’s Trade 5 Democrats to the Taliban”

Great moments in Republican rebranding, continued
Wingnuts • Views: 25,128

Here’s Senator Rand Paul speaking at the Republican Party of Texas state convention today, then proudly broadcasting his “joke” over Twitter. Because there’s nothing funnier than sending Democrats to be killed by the Taliban, is there? I’m sure it brought the house down.

Rand Paul, you may recall, has been presenting himself lately as the GOP’s leading moderate, reaching out to minorities and others alienated by the total derangement of the Republican Party.

And then he does this. Who could ever have predicted: Rand Paul, Libertarian Extremist in Moderate’s Clothing.

But wait — there’s more! Sen. Paul also claimed exclusive ownership of the Bill of Rights for the GOP:

And… wait for it… BENGHAZI.

From LGF commenter Lidane:

It’s worth noting that the #RPTCON14 hashtag Rand Paul is using is for the Texas GOP convention. The very same Texas GOP convention whose platform includes:

Ending the direct election of Senators
Repealing the Voting Rights Act
Ending all Motor Voter laws
Ending the Fed
Ending the TSA, the Department of Energy and the Department of Education
Withdrawing from the UN
Agenda 21
Creationism in public schools
AGW denial
CURE TEH GHEY conversion therapy
Repealing all hate crimes laws
Banning the morning after pill
Nullifying all federal gun laws

They’re also anti-vaccination. Fun times.

So yeah, they’re going to love Rand’s tweet here. It’s what the party stands for.
