If you buy into the left-wing media’s narrative about conservatives, we’re just a bunch of violent, unintelligent, bigoted rednecks that are just too stupid to grasp the superior leftist world view.
According to liberals, the greatest threat to the nation isn’t Islam, the national debt, or any other issue plaguing our country, it’s right-wingers. Despite a stunning lack of evidence, conservatives are made out to be so intolerant that we lash out violently and would love nothing more than to use the power of the state to silence critics. But well all know that has no basis in reality, it’s just a leftist delusion.
As we’ve seen countless times since Trump’s election, it’s the Left, not the Right, that’s comfortable using force to impose their views and shut up folks they disagree with, and this weekend, we got another prime example of their despicable behavior.
As reported at Yahoo, Sen. Rand Paul was assaulted in his home Friday by a liberal neighbor, who came onto Paul’s property and tackled him from behind. The senator suffered five broken ribs and has had trouble breathing as a result.
“This type of injury is caused by high-velocity severe force,” Paul’s senior advisor, Doug Stafford, said in an email to The Associated Press.
Police arrested 59-year-old Rene Boucher on Saturday and charged him with misdemeanor fourth-degree assault with a minor injury. Boucher lives next door to Paul and his wife, according to Warren County property records. Boucher was released from jail Saturday on a $7,500 bond and will be headed to court on Thursday.
Paul’s spokeswoman said that the senator was “blindsided” by the attack, as the two men have got along for years. Investigators are working to find out if Boucher broker federal law and if the attack was politically motivated.
FBI spokesman David Habich said the agency is aware of the incident and is “working with our state and local partners to determine if there was a violation of federal law.”
Stafford said Paul had three displaced fractures, which can lead to life-threatening injuries, as well as lung contusions. Paul and his wife, Kelley, “appreciate everyone’s thoughts and well wishes and he will be back fighting for liberty in the Senate soon,” Stafford said.
Jim Skaggs, a member of the state Republican Party executive committee, also lives in the neighborhood and has known both Paul and Boucher for years, claiming that despite being polar opposites politically, you never would have known it.
“They were as far left and right as you can be,” Skaggs said. “We had heard of no friction whatsoever other than they just were difference of political opinion. Both of them walked their little dogs at about a mile and a half circle, a nice little dog trot. I’d see them out walking, maybe they might stop and speak with each other.”
Whatever the reason, we’ll likely know soon, as an attack on a senator is no small thing. If the attack was politically motivated, it would hardly be surprising considering the increasing violent tendencies of leftists across the country. The media’s complicit in this rise of violence as well, as they’ve refused to condemn it precisely because it’s what they truly want. Hopefully, Paul will be back in the Senate soon, as he’s one of the few folks in the Republican Party with a backbone, and is therefore irreplaceable.
