Sen. Rand Paul spoke with “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning where he shared his story of being accosted and assaulted by radical Black Lives Matter protesters outside the Republican National Convention, stating if it weren’t for the police protecting him and his wife, they’d be dead.
Here’s more from Daily Wire:
“They were yelling threats. They were trying to push the police over to get to me,” Paul said. “They were grabbing at us, and it got worse and worse and worse, and then finally, we decided to make a move. I said we’ve got to move. If there’s not reinforcements, we have to try to get to the hotel which was another block and they were shouting threats to us, to kill us, to hurt us, but also threats, shouting ‘say her name, Breonna Taylor,’ and it’s like you couldn’t reason with this mob but I’m actually the author of the Breonna Taylor law to end no-knock raids.”
“So, the irony is lost on these idiots that they are trying to kill the person whose actually trying to get rid of no-knock raids and they were shouting and screaming and just, really these people were unhinged, but I can’t tell you how, I’m not sure we would have made it,” Paul continued. “So, as we’re walking sort of surrounded by the police, they’re attempting push the police over to get to me, so at one point they push a policeman backwards, he stumbles and he’s trying to catch his balance and I catch the back of his flak jacket to stabilize him to make sure he’s okay because he’s our defense. If he’s down the mob is loose on us, and you’ve seen the pictures of what they do to you.”
“If the police are not there, if you defund the police, if we become Portland, if America becomes Portland, what’s going to happen is people are going to be pummeled and kicked in the head and left senseless on the curb,” Paul continued. “That would have happened to us, I promise you, had we not had the D.C. Police to support us, we are thankful we have police, and we’ve got to wake up. We can’t have the whole country. We can’t have Joe Biden rule the country and have no police. I mean, we can’t walk down the street in D.C. safely now. That’s how bad it is.”
Rand Paul later stated that he believes the folks involved in the harassment and threats were paid agitators from out of state. Who might have paid these individuals, if that is indeed the case?
Well, the obvious answer would be George Soros. This guy has a history of paying protesters to show up to events, especially those against conservatives. It wouldn’t be a shock at all to see his fingerprints all over the place.
