Today on Meet the Press, Rand Paul aligned Syria’s Assad government with the protection of Christians. If there is one thing that can make this already bad situation exponentially worse, it is linking action vs no action regarding the use of chemical weapons on civilians to religion.
“I think the Islamic rebels winning is a bad idea for the Christians. All of a sudden we’ll have another Islamic state where Christians are persecuted.”Not everything he said was so incredibly inflammatory (Russia could help with the peaceful removal of Assad blah, blah, blah) but, honestly, with the 'Save the Christians!" bomb thrown in, nothing else he said matters.
Way to go, Paul. You really are a stunning piece of work.
