Daily roundup

This post is going to be a random collection of things I saw today on the Internet.

First, a quote from Rand Paul, son of Ron Paul and GOP Senate candidate from Kentucky:

I like the Civil Rights Act in the sense that it ended discrimination in all public domains, and I’m all in favor of that. … [but] I don’t like the idea of telling private business owners—I abhor racism. I think it’s a bad business decision to exclude anybody from your restaurant—but, at the same time, I do believe in private ownership. But I absolutely think there should be no discrimination in anything that gets any public funding, and that’s most of what I think the Civil Rights Act was about in my mind. (#)

So basically he thinks that private business should have the right to segregate? Classy. Oh, good job to Kentucky for making him their candidate for Senate. And to top it all off, apparently the scumbags at Stormfront support this guy. (Did I really just link to LGF? Again?)

In slightly less absurd news, apparently Jemaine Clement is going to be the enemy in Men in Black 3. Really? Him? That will be.. a thing.

And lastly, a roundup of Awfulvision: this guy‘s song about hating Jesus is pretty funny. But this video made me throw up in my mouth a bit.
