The Congressional Black Caucus will forgo no opportunity to retard black progress and undermine the ideals that were once understood to be the goals of the civil rights movement.
In the latest example, the caucus has issued a press release calling Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., a racist for opposing confirmation of Loretta Lynch as the next U.S. Attorney General.
Paul earlier issued a press release stating three reasons for his opposition to Lynch. The caucus ignored two and called the third, her support for civil asset forfeiture, “…nothing but an excuse to keep an African American legal scholar from holding this high position. …”
Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky announced Wednesday night that he will vote against confirming Loretta Lynch for attorney general because of differences over civil liberties issues, declaring that her views ride “roughshod on our constitutional rights.”
