I had a short discussion with another Twitter user last night about whether or not the legal issues of a 19 year old son of a politician was fair game for discussion. I say yes because the politician in question is an Holier than thou type who loves to claim moral high ground based on his Christian faith and patriotism and he never misses an opportunity to lash out and insult others who do not live up to his ideals.
If a politician scores political points by kicking dirt on other people for being immoral and not displaying good Christian moral family values, than that politician is fair game for criticism when their own family proves itself to be dysfunctional. If you aren't a good parent yourself, then stop ranting about how other people aren't good parents.
Children tend to mimic their parents' behavior more than they take heed of their parent's words. And when it comes to treating airport employees with respect, Rand Paul hasn't provided much of an example for his children. Rand Paul detained: Rep. refuses airport patdown after alarm
Republican Senator Rand Paul was stopped at an airport on Monday for setting off an alarm and refusing a patdown, prompting his father, U.S. presidential candidate Ron Paul, to accuse security officials of being part of an "out of control" police state.
In a harshly worded attack on the Transportation Security Administration, which handles security screenings at U.S. airports, Ron Paul, known for his strident libertarian views, said the TSA "gropes and grabs our kids and our seniors and does nothing to keep us safe."
So it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Rand Paul's oldest son William Hilton Paul doesn't show respect for airport personnel either. He's a chip off the old blockhead. Senator Rand Paul's Son Arrested at Charlotte Airport
According to Lt. Blake Hollar with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, Paul was intoxicated when he arrived at the airport and said "he was possibly served alcohol on the flight."
The teenager was arrested by police and booked into the Mecklenburg County Jail, charged with three misdemeanors: underage consumption, disorderly conduct, and being intoxicated and disruptive...
"Sen. Paul is a national public figure and subject to scrutiny in the public arena, however, as many parents with teenagers would understand, his family should be afforded the privacy and respect they deserve in a situation such as this," the statement said.Fat chance of that Rand Paul you hypocrite ass. In fact I thought I would post screenshots of the information about William Hilton Paul's upcoming April 4th court date in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. William is facing four misdemeanor charges. "Assault on a Female" was added to the list after the first three offenses listed in the story. Yeah yeah, she was probably some overbearing TSA Brownshirt hell bent on trampling young William's civil rights.
Fine young man you are raising there Rand Paul. Bravo for being a great dad.
