Does Rand Paul Believe in Freedom of Speech and/or Freedom of Association?
I emailed Senator Rand Paul's office about his appearance on Sean Hannity's radio show, and what he said there about anti-goverment speech, but have yet to hear back. Here's the quote in question:
PAUL: I'm not for profiling people on the color of their skin, or on their religion, but I would take into account where they've been traveling and perhaps, you might have to indirectly take into account whether or not they've been going to radical political speeches by religious leaders. It wouldn't be that they are Islamic. But if someone is attending speeches from someone who is promoting the violent overthrow of our government, that's really an offense that we should be going after — they should be deported or put in prison.
The second I get an answer, I'll update.
