Rand Paul, Supposed Defender Of Civil Liberties, Calls For Jailing People Who Attend ‘Radical Political Speeches’
Rand Paul calls for jailing people who listen to ‘Radical Political Speeches’ while guest hosting for Hannity. Since he’s conflating it with religion *wink* *wink* nudge….(I’m saying it’s not Islam but it is…) he’s just called to abrogate three of our basic freedoms: of speech, of assembly, and of Religion. Now there’s a libertarian with a capital L, he might as well burn the constitution on air.
But when Paul went on Fox News host Sean Hannity’s radio show Friday to discuss his opposition to the national security law, he suggested implementing a far more serious infringement on civil liberties. While discussing profiling at airports, Paul called for the criminalization of speech:
PAUL: I’m not for profiling people on the color of their skin, or on their religion, but I would take into account where they’ve been traveling and perhaps, you might have to indirectly take into account whether or not they’ve been going to radical political speeches by religious leaders. It wouldn’t be that they are Islamic. But if someone is attending speeches from someone who is promoting the violent overthrow of our government, that’s really an offense that we should be going after — they should be deported or put in prison.
Note that with the bolded part he’s pretty much described every militia group that ever held a tea party meeting.
