Peter King rips Rand Paul as "mad"

“I thought it was absolutely disgraceful that
so many Republicans voted to defund
the NSA program."
Congressman Peter King

Police State Republicans on the Attack  -  The Big Government-Big Brother Police State Republicans are scared shitless that they are losing their grip on the public.  First Governor Chris Christie attacked pro-Constitution libertarians and Rand Paul for having "dangerous thought."

Now Peter King, the former Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, viciously attacked Rand Paul and other pro-Constitution Republicans for "madness."

Big Brother loving GOP Rep. Peter King on Sunday continued his criticism of fellow Republican Rand Paul, blasting the Kentucky senator’s praise of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden as “madness.”

“When you have Rand Paul actually comparing Snowden to Martin Luther King or Henry David Thoreau, this is madness, this is the anti-war left-wing Democrats of the 1960s that nominated George McGovern and destroyed their party for almost 20 years,” the New York congressman said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I don’t want that happening to our party.”
King said it was “disgraceful” that 94 GOP representatives voted unsuccessfully to defund the NSA’s data collection program last week reports The Blaze.
“I thought it was absolutely disgraceful that so many Republicans voted to defund the NSA program, which has done so much to protect our country,” he said. “This is an isolation streak that’s in our party. It goes totally against the party of Eisenhower and Reagan, Bush. I mean we are a party of national defense. We’re a party who did so much to protect the country over the last 12 years.”
Bullshit alert - How is doing unconstitutional Orwellian spying on every American citizen helping to defend the nation and liberty?
King said earlier this month he was considering a 2016 presidential bid to try to block GOP “isolationists” Rand Paul and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

Maybe Peter King should try reading the Constitution.

“Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution.
That must be maintained, for it is the only
safeguard of our liberties.”
Abraham Lincoln

“I believe there are more instances of the abridgment
of the freedom of the people by gradual and
silent encroachments of those in power than by
violent and sudden usurpations.”
James Madison

"But a Constitution of Government once changed
from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once
lost, is lost forever."
John Adams
