I read the Huff Post daily. I also know their agenda and Ron Paul is a threat to them making themselves incapable of understand thier short-comings!
Huff Post is all about the big bad Republicans and thier handlers, the Tea Party.
Again, go to youtube an listen for yourself what the man said!
You're quoting a writer that within the month wrote an apology for all the slipshod research and slanted journalism that he's been a party to. Unless you can give a specific citation so that we can check the source, anything from www.capitalhillblue.com should be discarded as suspect. If you post this drivel without a source, then you are being just as unprincipled and unscrupulous as Thompson is.
And another source, The Washington Post
Asked for further clarification, Jesse Benton, a spokesman for the Paul campaign, confirmed that Paul does in fact think the Federal government should have the power to ban private businesses from commiting racial discrimination. He told me:"Civil Rights legislation that has been affirmed by our courts gives the Federal government the right to ensure that private businesses don't discriminate based on race. Dr. Paul supports those powers."That's a reversal from what Paul said last night on Rachel Maddow's show. Maddow asked Paul to clarify his previous expressions of doubt about parts of the Civil Rights Act, querying: "Do you think that a private business has the right to say we don't serve black people?"
"Yes," Paul answered, repeatedly decrying racism but saying he was reluctant to "limit their speech."
Do I need to give more source references????????????
