…as American politician tells it like it is:
“I think what [the Charlie Hebdo massacre] points out to us is the utter barbarity of the people who are opposing us,” said [Rand] Paul—with the understanding that “us” was all Western civilization. “We need to do a lot of the things that we are doing already.”
Paul was talking about existing spying and security policies, but he added another idea. “Maybe every Muslim immigrant that wishes to come to France shouldn’t have an open door,” he said.
Prodded by Hannity, Paul also criticized Western publications that had decided against publishing the cartoons that Charle Hebdo’s attackers cited as anti-Islam. The Western censors, said Paul, had to be “deaf, dumb and blind” to hold back. “I haven’t seen any Christians or Jews dragging Muslims through the streets, but I have seen the opposite.
I think I have my 2016 candidate! Paul’s fresh perspective would be the perfect antidote to the tired old retread that is Hillary Clinton. He would be our Obama to her McCain. Heck, Paul even wants to be “tranformational”.
