The left has certainly shown its true colors in the Age of Trump. After preaching unity and tolerance, it’s been nothing but violent threats and actual violence from liberals who can’t accept that their ideology is irrelevant in the United States. The latest example of this comes from a Trump-hating democrat who physically attacked Republican Senator Rand Paul. So far it hasn’t been confirmed that politics was the motive for the attack, but I’d say chances are pretty good.
Fox News reports:
Sen. Rand Paul was assaulted at his home in Bowling Green, Kentucky by an irate neighbor while he was mowing his lawn on Friday afternoon, according to neighbors.
Kentucky State Police have arrested the senator’s assailant, identified as Rene Boucher, 59, of Bowling Green for intentionally assaulting Paul at his home, causing minor injury, local law-enforcement officials confirmed to Fox News.
Boucher was arrested and charged with one count of 4th degree assault – minor injury. He was taken to the nearby Warren County Detention Center where he is being held on $5,000 bail.
Rand Paul’s office issued a statement regarding the attack:
“Senator Paul was blindsided and the victim of an assault. The assailant was arrested and it is now a matter for the police. Senator Paul is fine,” said spokeswoman Kelsey Cooper.
Fox goes on to describe this assailant as an anesthesiologist who shares a property line with Paul. And then there’s this stuff:
Voting records from the Kentucky State Board of Election list Boucher as a registered democrat…
A Facebook account that is alleged to be maintained by Boucher was found to contain multiple anti-Trump postings.
Let’s see, we have a registered democrat who frequently rants against President Trump on social media sucker-punching a Republican Senator. Yeah, I’m going to say this was definitely a politically motivated attack.
As you know, this is the third step in the liberal debating method: 1) accuse racism, 2) scream obscenities, 3) resort to violence. Although in this case it appears the angry democrat skipped one and two and went straight to the violence. I’m pretty sure this has been approved by the National Liberal Debate Committee, so he probably won’t lose his discount card at Babies R Us.
If convicted on this class A misdemeanor, Boucher would face up to year in jail. Police said they are actually investigating this as a possible politically motivated crime and could add charges.
While we are here, how cool is it that Rand Paul mows his own lawn? Do you think Dianne Feinstein or Chuck Schumer ever do yard work? Hell no. They have a team of illegal aliens that maintain their palaces for slave wages.
I’ll be interested to see how this story develops. I want to know what specific policy or issue set the democrat off enough to attack a US Senator. I also can’t wait for the liberal media to spin this to be President Trump’s fault for being so divisive, racist, sexist, etc…
