“Bingo: It has been a while since Republicans were led by a Reagan by someone who looks totalitarianism in the eye and calls it what it is. You dont hear todays GOP saying of the Muslim Brotherhood and its sharia-supremacist allies, We win, they lose. Todays GOP is more likely to tell the Muslim Brotherhood, Were here to partner with you. Todays GOP looks at ideologues who promise to conquer the West and sees not an evil empire but a Religion of Peace. Yes, it was Obama who opted to arm and fund the Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt where a new sharia constitution has been imposed, women are thus reduced to a lower caste, and minority Christians are systematically persecuted. But it was Republicans who voted decisively to approve these measures.
To his great credit, Senator Paul tried to stop our governments transfer of F-16 aircraft and Abrams tanks to Egypt. He certainly has that half of the equation right. At Heritage, he observed that while the war is not with Islam but with a radical element of Islam the problem is that this element is no small minority but a vibrant, often mainstream, vocal and numerous minority. Id say minority is hopeful at least in the Middle East, where, as Paul further noted, the enemy ideology grips whole countries, such as Saudi Arabia. Islamic-supremacism what he called radical Islam is, as he described, no fleeting fad but a relentless force. To empower Islamic supremacists is a grave mistake.”
You can lay all this on Grover Norquist and spineless Republicans that are terrified of being primaried. The sooner that Republicans tell Norky to GFY, the better off the Republicans will be.

Also, after Paul’s filibuster, Van Jones made a comment about liking something in his speech. Many here on FR chose to interpret that to mean Jones was ‘endorsing’ Rand Paul...not hardly!
Jones does plenty of his liberal disagreement with Paul here:http://www.ijreview.com/2013/03/41926-15-most-absurd-or-dishonest-tweets-from-mainstream-media-figures//#post-slideshow2
He even says Paul would stand with the KKK. Hardly an endorsement!
