Republican 2016 Presidential Candidate Who Survived Assassination Attempt By Bernie Sanders Supporter Is Physically Assaulted By Angry Kentucky Democrat.

Headline courtesy of Austin Bay writing at Instapundit, who notes it is the buried lede of the articles about the assault.

MY HOW MEDIA QUICKLY FORGET DEMOCRAT VIOLENCE AGAINST REPUBLICANS: I just scanned the two articles linked by Glenn and Stephen regarding the physical assault on Senator Rand Paul. It appears media need a reminder. Senator Rand Paul was on the baseball field the day Democrat terrorist James Hodgkinson launched his terror attack. That would be June 14, 2017.

NBC News doesn’t mention the June 2017 attack and Senator Paul’s presence on the field. The Daily Caller article doesn’t mention it (Glenn’s post) nor does The Hill report (Stephen’s post).

Mentioning Hodgkinson strikes me as appropriate. Rand Paul was there and he survived the terror attack.

IT CONTINUES: The Washington Post mentions Steve Scalise but fails to mention that Paul was on the field when Scalise was wounded.

FINALLY: The UPI mentioned it.

Paul, Kentucky’s junior senator since 2011, was present at the congressional baseball practice shooting in June that seriously injured U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise, R-Louisiana.

He began practicing ophthalmology in 1993 in Bowling Green, Kentucky,

Paul, 54, was a presidential candidate in 2016.

THE TRULY BURIED HEADLINE: “Republican 2016 Presidential Candidate Who Survived Assassination Attempt By Bernie Sanders Supporter Is Physically Assaulted By Angry Kentucky Democrat.”

Isn’t it time, and past time, for crazy dhimmocrat control?

UPDATE

Senator Paul’s injuries more serious than first reported:

A senior adviser for Rand Paul says the U.S. senator is recovering from five broken ribs following an assault at his home.

Doug Stafford said it is unclear when Paul will return to work since he is in considerable pain and has difficulty getting around, including flying. Stafford said Sunday that the broken ribs include three displaced fractures, which can lead to life-threatening injuries. The severe pain can last for weeks or months.

Police arrested 59-year-old Rene Boucher on Saturday and charged him with misdemeanor fourth-degree assault with a minor injury. Boucher is accused of attacking Paul on Friday, but officials have not released a motive.

I think those charges need to be changed to felony assault and battery.

ANTIFA Murders 26 At First Baptist Church Of Sutherland Springs, Texas
Political Intentions: Do They Matter?
  • Brett Buck

    Good to see the democratic party is still a “big tent” – Marxists, terrorists, the KKK, assorted anti-semites, race-baiters, hate-filled psychopaths, race hustlers, unrepentant ex-hippies, drug addicts, and the mentally ill.

    • Paul Hooson

      Both parties attract some very good people and some not so good people. I would never generalize that either party is mostly bad people. Party affiliation is much like belonging to a church. People may not subscribe to everything, or all beliefs, but are still members regardless.

  • jim_m

    As I commented over at Instapundit, it isn’t that the left forgets about violence against conservatives, it’s that if that said anything they would reveal their complete support of it and they would be caught celebrating the violence committed on their behalf.

    • I renew my call for crazy dhimmocrat control… Which call I will retract as soon as the dhimmocrat’s retract their calls for gun control, but no sooner.

      • Brett Buck

        Nice symmetry, we can defend against gun control with the second amendment. They can defending their position with whatever amendment that talks about shooting anyone with whom you have a political disagreement. If there isn’t one I am sure they will be able to “interpret” one. After all, they managed to justify baby-killing on the basis of an otherwise mythical “right to privacy”, if you can manage that level of twisted sophistry, this should be a piece of cake. (oh, I forgot that one in other list…).

        • jim_m

          I have a right to privacy. Therefore, as a leftist I have the right to murder anyone who disturbs my privacy.

          • Brett Buck

            Outstanding! Look out Tom Perez, jim_m is a worthy challenger.

      DemocRATs are well known for their violence. A very known instance is the caning of a Republican Senator by a DemocRAT housecritter before the start of the War Between the. States.

  • Paul Hooson

    A few weeks ago, both of my dogs were murdered because I’m Jewish. There’s too much hate in the country right now. Rand Paul has the right to be Rand Paul, and I have the right to be a Jew without all the violence and hate…

    • jim_m

      That’s right Paul. This was all about you. Like everything else.

    • Jwb10001

      If you know why the dogs were killed you must also know who did the killing, are they in jail?
      As far as your right to be free of violence just for being Jewish, I agree, what I don’t understand is your support of liberals (Clinton in particular) since they seem to be the party of Jew hatred.

      • Brett Buck

        That’s a good question, if you are worried about the fate if Jewish people, you must oppose the left, who have been sympathizing with and siding with people who are dedicated to killing every Jew they see for decades.

      • Paul Hooson

        I tend conservative on military, foreign policy and tax issues, but have some more liberal social issue leanings of tolerance. I certainly oppose the Obama Administration “deal” with Iran, which was no deal at all.

    • Vagabond661

      How do you know they killed your dogs because you are a Jew?

      • Paul Hooson

        It was the same park maintenance man that was involved in bias incidents against me for the last two years, He repeatedly made crazy and false bias statements against me and an obsession with my dogs for the last two years. The last maintenance man there went to jail for raping nine women in the park. Some of my police friends warned me about screwballs running this park.

        • Brian Brandt

          I assume the problem is that you ‘know’ who did it, but you can’t prove it.

          • Paul Hooson

            Yes. He did make a number of false statements to the officer, and neighbors as well as him quickly moving to erase security camera footage. I’m going to go the civil suit route, where the standard of evidence will be lower to prove my case, and at least recover some medical costs involved to attempt to save the life of the puppy after the daddy dog died.

          • Brian Brandt

            Well good luck. As I recall they died from (anti-freeze?) poisoning. That’s a miserable way to go.

          • Paul Hooson

            No, it was rat poison wrapped in meat or food, which caused both to bleed to death. Both suffered terrible and bloody deaths. It took three days to kill the father dog and five days to kill the puppy. If I had known they were poisoned, about $6000 in emergency care and vitamin K therapy could have saved both dogs.

          • Rdm42

            Anyone that can do that to a pet has a cold vortex where their soul should be, is all I can say. Good luck in getting justice.

          • Scalia

            I hope your civil suit goes well.

          • Paul Hooson

            Thank you, my friend.

        • Vagabond661

          Watch out for the crazies, Paul. Hope you have protection…and i dont mean condoms.

          • Paul Hooson

            Thank you. God bless you.

    • Hank_M

      Real sorry to hear about your dogs, Paul.
      Take care and be watchful.

  • Jwb10001

    And Clinton demanded Trump declare/promise he would accept the results of the election…. can’t make this shit up. The democrats should become the party of projection. All democrat ads should come with the disclamer “all the things this ad has accused our opponents of, we’re actually doing”

    • Scalia

      For many Democrats, principles are only important insofar as they help you get elected. They are similar to Muslim fanatics who will rape, kill and torture to advance Allah’s kingdom. Everything goes so that Islam may be advanced. We are opposed by people who have no moral compass, Jwb. We cannot reason with them.
