In Idiot GOP News: Ron “Racist Old Head” Paul Called MLK Day An Outrage…Blames Ronald Reagan For “Hate Whitey Day”

We are all aware that Ron Paul is a certified racist. Here’s an excerpt from one of his shady newsletters regarding MLK Day via The Root:

“Boy, it sure burns me to have a national holiday for Martin Luther King. I voted against this outrage time and time again as a Congressman. What an infamy that Ronald Reagan approved it! We can thank him for our annual Hate Whitey Day.”

… Paul’s supporters link to his Yea vote on this 1979 bill as evidence that he supported an MLK Holiday:

“TO AMEND H.R. 5461, MARTIN LUTHER KING HOLIDAY, BY DESIGNATING THE THIRD MONDAY IN JANUARY RATHER THAN JANUARY 15 AS THE LEGAL HOLIDAY.”

But this actually isn’t the bill for the holiday. The text doesn’t even claim that. More importantly, the date is wrong. This vote was taken on December 5, 1979. The vote for the King holiday was actually taken on November 13, 1979:

The bill was called up in the House on Tuesday, November 13, 1979 … When the final vote was taken, 252 Members voted for the bill and 133 against — five votes short of the two-thirds needed for passage.

I’m sorry to report that one of those Nay votes, as you can see here, was cast by one Ronald Paul. I’m sorry to further report that Paul again voted no on the 1983 bill that passed.

SMH.
