BRAVO, RAND PAUL!
By Rev. Ted Pike

Note: This article was written about four weeks ago but was eclipsed
by the Free Gaza flotilla issue. Its vital and timely message, however,
is too important to let pass.
In 1633, Catholic authorities forced Galileo, under threat of torture,
to recant his thesis that the sun does not revolve around the earth.
Rand Paul made a similarly forbidden and revolutionary assertion after
his primary election victory for the US Senate in Kentucky in May.
Paul suggested that Article 1 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 should
not have been passed. (The Act violates the 14th Amendment by giving
blacks preferential rights and services over the majority.) Paul was
immediately pilloried as a potential segregationist and forced to largely
retract, on penalty of political ruin.
Paul was threatening a cornerstone of the liberal PC, “anti-bias” establishment.
Its Civil Rights Act of 1964 deprived business owners of their
right to control their property by forcing them to hire and not fire
quotas of minorities less qualified than whites. The Act is the indispensable
foundation for “anti-hate” legislation that currently floods
Congress and local statehouses; all federal hate and bias crime bills
are amendments to it. Such ever-proliferating laws now steal free speech
along with our right to control our businesses and property as we see
For at least 500 years, English, and later American, law has said
a man’s home is his castle and a business he has labored to create
belongs to him alone. Just as a café can post “No shirt,
no shoes, no service,” so entrepreneurs took for granted for
centuries their right to refuse to serve or employ anyone, for any
Jesus Taught Sanctity of Property Rights
Jesus taught our duty to share with the needy, even to renounce all
loyalty to one’s possessions to most fully follow Him. Yet in
His parable of workers in the vineyard (Matthew 21), He said that if
those who came at the beginning of the day agree to a fixed wage they
can’t complain of injustice if the owner pays the same to one
who labored for only one hour. According to Christ, discretionary power
belongs entirely to the owner. Today, the owner of the vineyard could
be severely fined for “wage discrimination.” Clearly, the
ethics of Christ are radically different from the values of “non-discrimination” that
now prevail. Jesus’ view of the sanctity of private property
largely prevailed in the Western world from at least the time of the
Magna Carta—until the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Civil rights dogma reflects a Marxist philosophy. It says
capital, the property of landowners, should largely belong to the masses
who have done nothing to acquire or maintain it. Communism has one
great objective: abolition of private property, both in ownership and
control. For Marxists, the power of property must be destroyed;
small and large accumulations mean independence and, thus, power to
resist tyranny. After every communist revolution of the 20th century,
the property owner who resisted divestment was killed. Under the Civil
Rights Act, the property owner who does not open his business
to the employment of less qualified minorities or women can be indicted
under a possibly business-destroying federal lawsuit.
Although the Civil Rights Act was propelled into existence
by the genuine concern and idealism of tens of millions of sincere
Americans, it was no accident that Jews played an enormous role in
its passage. Activist Jews spearheaded communism in Russia and dominated
the US Communist party, making incitement of racial unrest among blacks
a top priority. (See, Jewish
Activists Created Communism) Jewish supremacism
has an objective identical to communism’s: creation of social
unrest and dissatisfaction to break down the existing order. Their
goal is world control by the few over the many. (In previous generations,
Jewish supremacists used blacks to create bias legislation to further
their long-range goals. Today, as exemplified by the Jewish Anti-Defamation
League and Southern Poverty Law Center, they primarily use homosexuals.)
Jewish-dominated liberal media in the early '60s stimulated national
remorse over mistreatment of blacks under slavery and segregation.
They urged Americans to grant blacks greater rights and privileges
than the majority. (See, Jews
Confirm Big Media Is Jewish)
Such included affirmative action programs and quotas, guaranteeing
blacks entry into high-tier professions such as medicine and law as
well as service jobs including police and firefighters. These quotas
indulged minorities with qualifications and GPAs well below those demanded
of whites. The Act also said no property owner or businessman
can refuse to hire qualified minorities, fire them, or decline to rent
or sell property to them because of “prejudice.” (Quickly,
feminists obtained similar special privileges under the “business
and property belong to the people” mentality.)
Despite its ostensible altruism, the Civil Rights Act represented
an inversion of the law of God and nature previously enshrined in western
civilization. Today, a tiny slave master class in government, comprised
of the formerly “oppressed” (Jews, homosexuals and racial
minorities) divest the majority of power to control their property.
A new slaveholder rules a global plantation. A new whip hand cracks
over the dispossessed majority.
Such denial of personal and property rights, which underlays the
Anti-Defamation League’s worldwide hate crimes laws, augers universal
loss of freedom in the years to come. All ADL hate laws, from Canada
to Australia, are based on the same premise: disproportionate rights
to “victims” of Christian civilization and abolition of
fundamental rights to everyone else, including rights of free speech
Greater Evil than Lunch Counter Discrimination
What would happen if we repealed the faulty Civil Rights Act which,
as Rand Paul said, should never have been passed? Would segregation
come back? No. Discriminating businesses would go
bankrupt, socially and economically penalized by a new society which
would not tolerate such bigotry. The public, not the government, should
punish discrimination (especially through the power of the dollar).
Let’s look at the big picture and the real threat. If America
continues to deny some the freedom to be bigoted in use of their property,
we face a much more bigoted and dangerous consequence: creating a white/Christian/conservative
have-not population under ADL’s new world order. Discrimination
against blacks primarily existed in the South. But we are all victimized
and receive absolutely no protection under the federal hate crimes
law, ENDA or ADL’s anti-bullying bills, etc. These lead to loss
of freedom worldwide.
Society only dimly understands the necessity of protecting our rights
to control private property free from government intrusion. It doesn’t
understand the danger in giving government even partial control. Next
to free speech and religion, the autonomy of property ownership and
control is one of society’s strongest barriers against tyranny.
If America is ever to be restored and enjoy long-lasting benefit from
Tea Party renewal, the premises empowering a never-ending profusion
of freedom-destroying bias and hate crimes laws must be dismantled.
America must return to the sufficiency of the Constitution and Bill
of Rights to guarantee equality to all.
America must again make it illegal—even treasonous—for
government to exalt one group above another. If such were reestablished
as the law of the land, ADL’s homosexual-favoring hate crimes
legislative agenda would no longer possess its tilted legal foundation.
It could not exist.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 must be repealed.
