Pete Coors on Civil Rights
2004 former Republican Senate Challenger (CO)
A: Yes. We must ensure that law enforcement and intelligence agencies have the necessary tools to combat terrorism. To date, there have been no abuses of power as a result of the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act updates current law to account for new technologies like cell phones. The act also allows law enforcement officials to share information between agencies.
A: I believe the definition of marriage is a legal union between a man and a woman. Unfortunately, activist judges have forced the issues and sought to undo this traditional institution. I question whether the Constitution is the best place to place such a law, but I would support the Allard/Musgrave amendment as a last resort to preserving the institution of marriage.
Coors has seen its role typically as providing seed money for major attacks on civil rights like Proposition 209 and the University of Michigan cases. Making clear to Coors that racism is bad business can therefore play a very important role in reversing the whole period of right wing and racist attacks on affirmative action and integration.
