Ron Paul Again Gets It Wrong

Congressman Ron Paul has an incredible ability to understand an aspect of an issue, but winds up with the wrong conclusion. He defended himself against charges stemming from articles in a magazine he published which were blatantly anti-black and anti-Jewish. “I’m the only one up here and the only one in the Democratic party that understands true racism in this country. It’s in the judicial system. It has to do with enforcing drug laws… blacks are arrested disproportionately.” Absolutely correct.

He also boasted that “one of my heroes is Martin Luther King because he preached the libertarian principle of peaceful resistance and peaceful civil disobedience, as did Rosa Parks.” But, they wanted LAWS passed by Congress to end racial discrimination, that was THE goal of peaceful resistance. Their goals were the exact opposite of what you preach!

However, Congressman Paul, judges do NOT make drug laws, laws are made by legislatures and judges enforce laws. You are a man of limited intelligence.
