"People need to get over themselves writing all this stuff that I’ve changed my mind on the Civil Rights Act," he said. "Have I ever had a philosophical discussion about all aspects of it? Yeah, and I learned my lesson: To come on MSNBC and have a philosophical discussion, the liberals will come out of the woodwork and they will go crazy and say you’re against the Civil Rights Act, and you’re some terrible racist. And I take great objection to that, because, in Congress, I think there is nobody else trying harder to get people back their voting rights, to get people back, and make the criminal justice system fair. So I take great offense to people who want to portray me as something that I’m not."
Paul continued, “Half-a-dozen people on your network trying to say I’m opposed to the Civil Rights Act,” adding “The honest discussion of it would be that I never was opposed to the Civil Rights Act and when your network does 24-hour news telling the truth, then maybe we can get somewhere with the discussion.”
