Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told "Fox & Friends" he believes he would have been killed if not for the police when he and his wife were surrounded and attacked by a "mob" yelling threats and pushing police upon exiting the White House after President Trump's acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC) Thursday night.

Unsurprised Dem Libs deliberately failed to mention this report. Too busy crying over a stupid thug that rightfully lost his ability to walk and/or harm another person.

What I am surprised about is the fact that he didn't have a federal security detail considering he's a public official. He should've asked Trump to at least provide him with one before they left.

Either way......this attempt on him and his wife's lives was despicable.

"They're attempting to 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 OK because he's our defense," Paul explained. "If he's down, the mob's loose on us."

If not for the police, Paul said he could've been killed or recovering in the hospital, adding that people followed him into the hotel.

"I truly believe this with every fiber of my being, had they gotten at us they would have gotten us to the ground, we might not have been killed, might just have been injured by being kicked in the head, or kicked in the stomach until we were senseless," he explained.

"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," he said. "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."

Paul was trying to get to his hotel across the street from the White House, but it was blocked by protesters, so he said the Secret Service instructed him, his wife, Kelley, and two female friends to get on a bus, which took 45 minutes to get through all the mobs, and then he planned to get an Uber to get dropped off at the hotel, but the streets were blocked and no one would let them through.

Wow.

"They were shouting threats to us, to kill us, to hurt us, but also threats saying shout, 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're trying to kill the person who's actually trying to get rid of no-knock raids," he said.

Paul said he's authored 22 criminal justice reforms with President Trump and former President Barack Obama, but the demonstrators were still yelling: "We're not going to let you go alive unless you'll say you're for criminal justice reform."

LOL and how correct he is. They really are a bunch of uneducated savages. They care more about what stupid post some fellow Far Gone Left idiot says on social media than about keeping up with their local politicians and current events.

The Pauls were unharmed, but the senator is still calling on the FBI to make arrests and conduct an investigation into the "interstate criminal traffic being paid for across state lines" because people have already been killed in other cities.

"It's become so dangerous for us and I don't hear Joe Biden or Kamala Harris saying one thing about the violence. This mob is their voters. This is the new Democrat party, and if we don't resist this, the United States is going to become Portland. We're going to become Chicago. All of these failed cities Democrats have run, the president said in his speech," he said. "If we allow them to take over the White House, we are going to become Portland, the country will be on fire, we have to have law and order and we have to support the police. I can't say that strong enough."

Tell it! Amen!

Here we go, it is allowed to rebel against everything, even with violence (it's even fashionable), except the real power in this world.
In any event, look for class interest

And in case you want a more detailed report of what almost happened to him, here's the link.

Sen. Rand Paul: My wife and I were attacked by a mob — Dems would worsen problem by bowing to rioters | Fox News

But as we went to leave, it became apparent there was no safe exit out the gates and through the unruly mob that had gathered there.

Why? Because another Democratic-run city had decided it would bow to lawless rioters instead of protecting its citizens. Mayor Muriel Bowser was asked by the Secret Service to allow wider and better protection for those leaving the White House Thursday night, but she refused.

Mayor Bowser and many others are responsible for what happened. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called my Senate colleagues and me “enemies of the state.” Democratic vice-presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris has advocated paying bail to get violent rioters out of jail.

Three Democratic House members who are part of the socialist “Squad” have called for people to “take to the streets.”

Ding, ding, ding! Does that sound familiar? I made a thread about that very same House member very recently that should be investigated for her treasonous statements.

Well, national Democrats, your people are listening to you. How does it feel to watch it happen? Are you comfortable watching the mob go after my wife and me?

Senator....they don't even care about their own neighborhoods. Them harming you and your family wouldn't even make them blink.

If the police weren't there, I can only imagine what those savages would've done to your wife after they took you out.

They DO NOT CARE.

According to videos, an officer was run into by a protester, but Rand Paul and wife were not attacked nor sustained injuries. Also, many videos do not show a crowd size claimed by Paul.

Protesters did shout at him and did not seem to know his proposed legislation. But, when you consider that he himself is incorrect in what defunding the police actually means, I wouldn't be so quick to judge the protesters as idiots.

He never said he nor his wife sustained injuries. He repeatedly stated if the officers were not there to protect him and his wife, they would've been brutally assaulted or worse, which would've been a definite possibility considering the level of well documented violence your mobs are accustomed to using, Liberally.

From the video in the link, one can obviously see how hostile the mob was surrounding him, his wife, and the officers who formed a barrier around them. Unless of course one willfully denies plain evidence like a Lib.

Protesters did shout at him and did not seem to know his proposed legislation.

And what did they shout at him and his wife? Or did you also conveniently not hear the threats?

But, when you consider that he himself is incorrect in what defunding the police actually means, I wouldn't be so quick to judge the protesters as idiots.

There's only one definition of defunding police. Do not attempt to make it out to be some mythical bull**** fluffy meaning.

These mobs are emboldened by the tacit encouragement of the Democratic party, and therein lies the irony. It is Rand Paul that has championed real civil rights and fought the very government/authoritarian overreach that these so-called protesters claim as their source of discontent. The Democratic elites depend on government intrusion and are trying to pave the way into a United States Animal Farm. The protesters are so misled and blind that they cannot see that the Democratic leadership as Orwellian in nature and comprised of manipulative elitists using protesters in a bid for power. Yet these same Democratic elitists have blatantly shown disregard when it comes to a choice between the American people and their cherished socialist oligarchy. Just lately, the stonewalling of the Democrats to deny Americans the help they need is an obvious Machiavellian ploy. Obamacare was a classic example of a type of oligarchic collusion, as was wholesale government surveillance which Pelosi dedicated herself to, and to which Rand Paul adamantly fought. Only because of Snowden was the plot foiled, so to speak, and government intrusion was set back a decade or so. Nevertheless, the Communist/socialist agenda marches is on, using emboldened mobs to intimidate Americans and disrupt a free society.

The mobs will eventually be brought to heel by the National Guard because eventually the "liberal" state leadership will be under threat. What the Democrats don't understand is that mobs are not easily appeased because they are not rational, and that the Democrats - in stoking all this fury - will be victims of it as well. In the mean time, I hope Rand Paul gets his wish, with an FBI investigation. Thanks!!

The crowd was very rowdy, but Rand Paul was never in any physical danger at any time.

Watch the full video above.

I consider this to be far less aggressive than an armed militia comprised of gun nuts and far-right lunatics basically taking over government buildings and pretending it's a protest:



Do you wanna know why Fox News and Trump supporters never criticized the militia nuts with their guns and why Rand Paul is freaking out because he got heckled? What is the main difference between the two groups of protesters? Take a wild guess...

Watch the full video. What happened was is the Officer ran into a street sign and sort of tripped into a protester. The protester definitely over-reacted by pushing the officer, but it's not as aggressive as Trump supporters make it out to be.

Watch from about 7 minutes and 20 seconds. That's where the Officer trips.

I really liked Rand Paul before he went full Trump.

But, man, this guy has really become a big sissy.

I have no respect for him anymore...whining about a rowdy crowd. What a coward. What a tiny, cowardly man.

Why were these idiots allowed to assemble and harass convention goers in the first place?

The protesters are allowed to protest because we still live in a free country, where individual citizens still have the right to free speech.

Here.

I know Trump supporters have never read the Constitution, so let me help you:

First Amendment | U.S. Constitution | US Law | LII / Legal Information Institute

Amendment I
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Now, notice what it does not say. It does not say the following:

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances...unless the protesters are black protesting in support of not being murdered by police, and verbally attacking or insulting people allied with Donald Trump.

It does not say that. That's an edit, Trump supporters have unconsciously inserted into the 1st amendment.

What part of "peaceably" do you not understand? This isn't a protest, this is a rage mob. But please, keep it up until November.

I think the answer is pretty obvious.

Black people aren't entitled to the same rights that white people are entitled to, according to Trump supporters.

The only act of violence, if we can even call it that, occurred after a police officer tripped and fell onto a protester, and the protester overreacted by pushing the police officer back.

This was not a "rage" mob. Trump supporters are just living in fear because the protesters committed the crime of being angry and being black, and not saying, "Yes, Massa." And I'm sure Paul was scared because he is like, what, 5 foot 5 or something? I would be scared if I was that tiny too, but black people are still allowed to express their 1st amendment rights even if they look scary to Trump supporters.

If a little sorority girl was almost raped by some frat guy's would you say..."She was just scared because she is tiny. These were just a bunch of rowdy college kids. No big deal".

You should not judge a victims perception of a situation.

In a world governed by sensible officials the mob would have been arrested and brought under civilized control long before the end of the convention gathering.

"Rowdy??" That's how you would characterize that group. That's really funny. If they were screaming at you like that, I don't you'd characterize them as merely "rowdy." Menacing is more like it, and whether it happened to Rand Paul or an average American, the fact is the mob was in powder keg mode, and if the police hadn't been there, the mob's intimidation would have easily escalated. Thanks!!

This is a ridiculous comment. The protesters did not want to harm Rand Paul, they wanted Paul to acknowledge their grievances, specifically, their right to not be indiscriminately killed by police officers.

And Rand Paul is not a victim. He is not a victim because nothing happened to him. He got yelled at, nothing more.

Also, with respect to your comment about a victim's perception of a situation, and that it should not be judged. This is hogwash. There is an objective reality that exists independently of anyone's perspective. Perception is not reality.

First of all, I agree with the crowd, not about their tactics necessarily as I'm not one to walk up and yell at someone, but about their message.

Second, if I were Rand Paul, and there was some crowd that disagreed with me, I would talk to them, listen to them, hear their complaints. That is what an elected official and a leader does for his or her fellow citizens. That's the responsibility of an elected official. Rand Paul is a coward. Rand Paul is not a leader.

Menacing is more like it, and whether it happened to Rand Paul or an average American, the fact is the mob was in powder keg mode, and if the police hadn't been there, the mob's intimidation would have easily escalated. Thanks!!

These protesters don't want to hurt Rand Paul, or Republicans, or Trump (well, maybe they might want to hurt Trump, I'll give you that)...they just wanted to be treated as equal citizens. That's not rage on their faces. It's pain.

Most 'public officials' including Senators and Congressmen, don't have assigned security. Certain ones (like the Speaker of the House) do, and some may be assigned on a temporary basis for a particular threat. My understanding is that they do receive some support (threat assessments, consultation on security, panic buttons, etc.) but not full time guards. In most cases, capital police are expected to protect them in cases like this.

It does seem like more should have been done in the way of security here - either clearing the way for people to exit the event safely, or providing a car to drive them home.
