Rand Paul blasts “first black president” over civil rights & spying, Al Sharpton fires back (VIDEO)

Only Race Hustlers Can Talk About Race & Civil Rights

In an op-ed criticizing President Barack Obama‘s spying programs at the NSA, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) blasted the president by invoking race to criticize his civil rights record. Reverend Al Sharpton took extreme offense, defending Obama’s unconstitutional spy programs.

“The first African-American president ought to be a little more conscious of the fact of what has happened with the abuses of domestic spying,” Paul said. “Martin Luther King was spied upon, civil rights leaders were spied upon, Muhammad Ali was spied upon, antiwar protesters were spied upon.”

“The possibility for abuse in this is incredible,” the senator added. “So I don’t care if there’s never been any evidence of abuse with the NSA. They should not be collecting the data.”

Paul’s message was enthusiastically received with a standing ovation at notoriously liberal Berkeley College when he gave a speech there last week. But the liberal race baiters of the media establishment were none too pleased.

Reverend Al Sharpton took to the airwaves to return fire at Senator Paul, playing defense for the Obama regime and invoking faux outrage over Paul invoking race in a discussion over civil rights. It seems that only ineffective minority leaders are allowed to speak out on civil rights issues. Sharpton criticized Senator Paul, calling him mistakenly by his father’s name in a short segment on MSNBC.

“Where does Ron [sic] Paul get off talking about race and civil rights at all?” Sharpton asked. “That’s inexcusable,’ he says.
