Title: Rand Paul is a piece of shit
Post by: Straw Man on April 24, 2013, 02:59:30 PM
Quote
“your rights to trial by jury are precious, that no American should be killed by a drone on American soil without first being charged with a crime, without first being found to be guilty by a court”

and

Quote
“If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and $50 in cash I don’t care if a drone kills him or a policeman kills him.”

keep in mind when he was doing his little political stunt a month or so ago I said that I didn't think he believed a single word of what he was saying

Now I know that to be a fact

"I've never argued against any technology being used when you an imminent threat, an active crime going on. If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and 50 dollars in cash, I don't care if a drone kills him or a policeman kills him. But it's different if they want to come fly over your hot tub, or your yard just because they want to do surveillance on everyone, and they want to watch your activities."

Not that I agree, but you have to understand the context.

Not that I agree, but you have to understand the context. 

keep in mind that Rand Paul was trying to pretend that the government might try to use drones against political protesters or people sitting in cafes and other complete absurd situations

also, what happened to "no American should be killed by a drone on American soil without first being charged with a crime, without first being found to be guilty by a court

he goes from that statement to saying if you just stole $50 bucks it's OK with him to be killed by a drone?

Man, I can't keep up with how many different opinions RP has on drones

Last month it was

Quote
“your rights to trial by jury are precious, that no American should be killed by a drone on American soil without first being charged with a crime, without first being found to be guilty by a court”

yesterday it was

Quote
“If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and $50 in cash I don’t care if a drone kills him or a policeman kills him.”

today it's

Quote
"Let me be clear: It has not. Armed drones should not be used in normal crime situations. They may only be considered in extraordinary, lethal situations where there is an ongoing, imminent threat. I described that scenario previously during my Senate filibuster.

"Additionally, surveillance drones should only be used with warrants and specific targets.

"Fighting terrorism and capturing terrorists must be done while preserving our constitutional protections. This was demonstrated last week in Boston. As we all seek to prevent future tragedies, we must continue to bear this in mind."

so now just 24 hours later he doesn't think drones should be used to kill someone who steals $50

also, what happened to "no American should be killed by a drone on American soil without first being charged with a crime, without first being found to be guilty by a court

That's still his stance, the quote was in regard to an imminent threat.  The same kind of situation in which a cop would legally and rightfully use lethal force.

I don't think he's actually endorsing using drones in that situation. He didn't contradict himself, he's referring to an imminent threat.  I think he just wanted to illustrate his point, and his main concern.

Senate hearing blasts Obama's refusal to share details of drone program
 McClatchy Newspapers ^ | April 24, 2013 | Jonathan S. Landay

Posted on Wednesday, April 24, 2013 8:47:45 PM by haffast

WASHINGTON -- Democratic and Republican senators joined a former deputy chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Tuesday in urging the Obama administration to make public more information about its top-secret targeted killing program amid questions about the legality and effectiveness of hundreds of CIA drone strikes in Pakistan and elsewhere.

"More transparency is needed to maintain the support of the American people and the international community" for drone strikes, said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., a key Obama ally and the chairman of the Constitution subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The White House refused to send a witness to the Senate's first open hearing on the issue despite President Barack Obama's vow to be more forthcoming about a counterterrorism weapon that has become a despised symbol of U.S. foreign policy in many parts of the world.

"I am disappointed that the administration declined to provide witnesses to testify at today's hearing," Durbin said. His frustration was echoed by several other Democrats and Republicans.

Rosa Brooks, a Georgetown University Law Center professor who served as a Pentagon adviser during the height of the drone strikes, questioned the legality of drone strikes away from active battlefields, saying that the targeted killing policy "is on the verge of doing significant damage to the rule of law."

he wants to be president.  If he said "No, i would not yse drones on boston bad guys", he's soft on terror.

he wants the job, he's not giving his 2016 GOP contenders a line to use against him.  They would, and FOX and levin and others would repeat it.  Remember them trashing ronpaul because he wasn't sporting a boner to invade iran?  Soft on terror, they called him.  Rand isn't gonna give them the material to falsely use against him.

I'm not pissed at rand paul for this.  I know what he's believed his entire life.  Then I know what I saw in 2012... levin & Hannity completely DESTROYED Ron Paul because he refused to take all the war pledges with everyone else.  It was some test, if you didn't promise to nuke Iran, you were somehow soft on terror...

If he refuses to say he would use drones on these terrorists (opting only for bullets and grenades), then these talking heads would call him soft on terrorists. They would. I heard it for weeks on fox radio, every single night.  Not for Rand.  He's smarter than that.

NO candidate will say "um, i wouldn't use drones to kill these terrorists."  RPaul can only LOSE by saynig this.

They sandbagged his dad with it.  They were pieces of shit about it... really "why is RP so soft on terror?", etc.  Just looking for an excuse to mock him, "ruPaul fans", as Levin phrased it.

Ron paul was too honest.  HIs son knows his own side will play word games to sink him because he won't pledge to everything like some of the wimps running.

not if we dont let them.  Not if we dont do what we did in 2012.

remember getbiggers (who liked ron paul) saying it was cool for the RNC to fck him over on that vote, because "it was for the good of the party unity..."

remember getbiggers who stood quietly while levin and others trashed ron paul because he woudln't commit to every promise and pledge that the suck-up, weak-willed GOP field was willing to join?

So the idea is that there are police present to command him to drop the weapon, but a drone may be called in to shoot him?

I think he made the argument last night on Fox that the drone had a better shot, and the police on the ground were using it just like they would use their own sidearms.  He only wanted to demonstrate the point that he's not against this technology, he's against it being used to abuse our privacy, etc.  He compared it to those robots that defuse bombs.

No, if he's an imminent threat he's going to be neutralized asap either way as far as I know.  When you're aiming a gun at the police/civilians there's no "drop the weapon", they shoot you.

I assume so since he used the term imminent threat.

Given his history, I'm not too concerned about this.

"I'm against targeted killings by drones, but I'm also against targeted killing by sniper, by spear, by knife, by club. The technology isn't so important. What I was arguing against in the filibuster was targeted assassination."

Someone needed to force the administration to reveal their stand, and make a clear statement.

I don't give a fuck about what we are doing to the people in a war zone, and if I was there, I would expect the enemy to use that ability on me, but I'm a US citizen and this shit is what the Nazi's would do if they had the tech in the 40s.

I can't answer that.

You're reading too much into this.

Bro, I'm reading exactly what he's saying.  Do you think he could be playing games with words because he wants to have a run at president?

I don't recall you saying a word about drone strikes when Bush was doing them

Bush barely did it at all next to obama and i i have already made my feelings known on this.

You are a hypocrite of the highest order.

Yes,

To be honest (whether or not it's wrong) I hope he doesn't fall into the trap his dad did.  He has to tell people (neo cons, religious right) what they want to hear to some degree.


"I'm against targeted killings by drones, but I'm also against targeted killing by sniper, by spear, by knife, by club. The technology isn't so important. What I was arguing against in the filibuster was targeted assassination."

...but speaking like a person who would support what would be an extremely similar type of assassination on an American who may have robbed a liquor store.

Jack, how is targeted assassination extremely similar to a man running out of a liquor store with a weapon in his hand?

The man emerging from the liquor store has been targeted because he has a weapon and is presumed to have robbed the store.

Would you disagree?

no, I would agree. We may have to define "targeted" if it's use gets a little muddy but go on..

In re-reading the posts, I am probably arguing the wrong premise. If we are talking Drone in each case, not much difference. I was picturing the policeman he had mentioned and a possible deadly force confrontation. But drone alone.. yeah, could be similar

To the person killed, the definition would be quite clear.

and

keep in mind when he was doing his little political stunt a month or so ago I said that I didn't think he believed a single word of what he was saying

Now I know that to be a fact

Way to take what he said out of context.
