Twitter Users Advise Rand Paul to Reconsider His 'Jew for Rand' Slogan

4 years ago|9 views
It doesn't take long for a backlash to start these days.
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul announced Tuesday that he is running for the White House in 2016, and hours later a slogan on his website had Twitter users in a tizzy. Under the "Show Your Support" section of the website, Paul asks visitors to change their social media profile pictures to a basic campaign poster. They could, for example, select a photo that says, "Christian for Rand." Or they could have picked the one that caused a stir: "Jew for Rand." One tweet read, "Maybe "Jew For Rand" isn't a slight, but rather an admission of reality. Just that one Jewish voter for Rand." Others have pointed out that there is no current option for Muslims or Republicans, though he does have photos for conservatives and fishermen.
