BLM mob attacks Rand Paul

BLM mob attacks Rand Paul, by Paul Mirengoff.

Sen. Rand Paul was confronted by an angry BLM mob after he left the White House following President Trump’s speech. The Senator and his wife required police protection to get to their hotel. He says that without the protection he might have been killed. …

As with the mob rampage at D.C. restaurants earlier in the week, this gang tried to force particular speech. The restaurant thugs coerced diners into holding up their fists. Anyone who refused was harangued and harassed.

This time, the fledgling brown shirts demanded that Sen. Paul say Breonna Taylor’s name. … Ironically, Sen. Paul, a libertarian, is the sponsor of the “Justice for Breonna Taylor” Act to do away with “no knock” police raids like the one during which Taylor died. Paul, though, refused to accede to the mob’s demand that he say Taylor’s name. He kept on walking.

It wouldn’t have mattered if Paul had explained his Act to the mob. Its members aren’t interested in changing police behavior. They want to get rid of the police and to physically attack people who disagree with their radical far-left politics.

Paul believes the group that confronted him was paid and brought in from out of town. Maybe.

Rand Paul’s wife, Kelley Paul, who was with him, writes:

Thursday night felt like being in a terrifying dystopian novel. The mob swarmed me and my husband, Sen. Rand Paul, in a tight circle, screaming expletives, threats, and shouting, “Say her name.” We rushed up to two police officers, and I believe that is the only thing that kept us from being knocked to the ground. Even pressed against the officers, we were greatly outnumbered.

As the mob grew and became more threatening, we literally could not move, and neither could the two officers for several minutes. The rioters were inches from us, screaming in our faces.

That was the worst part. At first, I attempted to meet the eyes of one of the protesters and tried to explain that Rand authored the Justice for Breonna Taylor Act, but it seemed to just infuriate them more, as they called me a “bitch” and “racist wh—” alongside an endless torrent of “f— yous.”

Mobs are terrifying. They looked at us with no humanity — just a vicious and righteous zeal. After that, I just kept my eyes down and prayed. All I could think of was the driver who was pulled from his car, viciously kicked in the head and left lying in his own blood in Portland, Oregon, last week.

Now the Associated Press is reporting that Rand used the word “attack” to describe our ordeal “without evidence.” This is disgusting and utter proof of their bias.

When you are surrounded by throngs of people screaming in your face and preventing you from getting away, that is an attack.

After several harrowing minutes, additional officers arrived with bikes and surrounded us to create a moving barricade to escort us to safety. …

 

 

Several of our friends were also attacked trying to make it to their hotels last night, including one who had his glasses slapped off his face, another who was pepper-sprayed by a rioter, and a woman who was punched in the back. …

In the last three years, my husband was shot at by the Bernie Sanders supporter who nearly killed Rep. Steve Scalise, had six ribs broken and his lung damaged by a vocal internet hater of President Trump, and endured numerous death threats against him and our family. An MSNBC reporter literally said on air, laughing, that Rand’s assault was her favorite news story of the week. She was hardly criticized or made to apologize, let alone fired.

Sheltering from reality in their media echo chamber and their universities, the left are furious in their ignorant righteousness. They feel their violence is justified. They are not ashamed or apologetic.

They will not accept facts or argument from outside, so we are doomed to have to put up with their escalating violence until they are physically stopped, their morale broken, and they surrender.
