Rand Paul And His Wife Attacked By Angry Mob Outside White House

Rand Paul Attacked

Senator Rand Paul and his wife were surrounded and attacked by what he described as a “crazed mob” just outside the White House in the early Friday morning hours.

The incident took place as the congressman and his wife were departing the White House following President Donald Trump’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC).

He was quick to note that police officers likely saved his life.

“Just got attacked by an angry mob of over 100, one block away from the White House,” tweeted Paul. “Thank you to [the Metropolitan Police Department] for literally saving our lives from a crazed mob.”

Scary Video

Nerve-wracking video of the incident emerged showing a crowd of protesters swarming the Senator and his wife, essentially chasing them back to their hotel.

Paul had to be surrounded by police, with one officer in front defending him with a bicycle.

Protesters began shouting “no justice, no peace,” with justice in their minds seemingly being random violence and harassment of civilized people.

At one point, the officer with the bike appears to be shoved and momentarily falls to the ground. Paul turns back to make sure he’s okay before he returns to his feet and continues to escort the Kentucky Republican to safety.

Democrat Sponsored Violence

Paul has, on more than one occasion, been the victim of violence either directly or indirectly sponsored by his Democrat colleagues. Certainly, recent rhetoric could be linked to this latest incident.

Just days ago, we wrote that “Democrats have sent a … signal to ‘protesters,’ a not all that subtle dog-whistle to keep the violence going.”

Why? Because Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) told her supporters there needs to be “unrest in the streets.”

And to nobody’s surprise, here’s an example of the left’s ‘unrest in the streets.’

Paul’s Past Experiences With Violence

Paul has seen more than his share of such violence.

In 2017, he was physically assaulted by his neighbor, leaving him with a myriad of injuries including six broken ribs, pleural effusion, and, consequently, pneumonia which resulted in part of his lung being removed.

The Senator was also on the field during a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia that same year, when James Hodgkinson carried out a mass assassination attempt of Republican lawmakers.

“I was there at the ball field when Steven Scalise almost died from a very, very angry violent man who was incited really by rhetoric on the left,” Paul said in a later interview.

Now, he’s present once again, the victim of a violent mob stoked by rhetoric on the left. When is this going to end?
