Another Democrat is publicly encouraging violence against Republicans, and why wouldn’t they? After all, they can easily do so without any push-back from their party. When Maxine Waters encouraged people to harass anyone associated with Donald Trump in public places, condemnation isn’t something she received. Instead, other lunatics like Cory Booker went on television and defended her dangerous rhetoric. In fact, Booker doubled down, telling people to “get up in the face” of Republicans.

The latest to defend violence is Alison Lundergan Grimes, who joked about the assault last year which left Rand Paul with with several broken ribs and precipitated a case of pneumonia. The neighbor who assaulted him was sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined $10,000. It was but the second act of violence Paul was nearly the victim of that year – as Paul was also present at the baseball practice in which Steve Scalise was shot.

According to Fox News, “Grimes reportedly joked on Friday about the assault on Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., by his neighbor, saying it shows ‘he can be beaten’. Associated Press reporter Adam Beam tweeted that Democrat Grimes made the remark at a local Fancy Farm Picnic in Kentucky on Friday, which Kentucky political candidates often use as the kickoff for election campaigns. Grimes is considering running for governor in 2019.”

While Paul himself hasn’t replied to the “joke,” his chief strategist Doug Stafford did, and mocked Grimes’ failed 2014 Senate run in doing so. Grimes tried unsuccessfully to unseat Mitch McConnell. “That’s almost as sad and pathetic as her last campaign,” Stafford said. “Mitch beat her so bad he almost got charged with a hate crime.”

It’s ironic that given all the faux concern over Donald Trump’s rhetoric having the ability to incite violence, 100% of the actual violence has been coming exclusively from those very same Leftists. But then again, if liberals didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any standards at all!
