This is what our nation has become, living in fear of the left violence and hate.
Kelley Paul, the wife of Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), described her increasing concerns for the safety of herself and her family amidst increasing calls from Democrats and the broader left to amplify politically motivated hostility towards Republicans. She offered her remarks in a Friday interview with Breitbart News Deputy Political Director Amanda House.
“We’ve updated all of our security systems at home. I sleep with a loaded gun by my bed. I’m home alone a lot, obviously when Rand is [in Washington, DC], and so I’ve got deadbolts all around my house so that if someone’s in my house when I go to bed I’m deadbolted in three different levels,” Paul told House, Breitbart reports.
Kelley also expressed deep concern about lawmakers who have encouraged their constituents to confront Republican politicians.
The “get in their face” tactic that Kelley warned against was also endorsed by Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who told a group of supporters in June that they should take action if they see a member of Donald Trump’s cabinet in the street or in a store.
“It’s bizarre. I’ve never been like this in my whole life. … We used to never even lock our doors, and now that has all changed. Even going out to dinner in D.C., last night, you worry. You hope that people aren’t going to come up and just start screaming at you.
Words do matter, and there are so many, quite frankly, unhinged [and] unstable people out there, and when they hear someone on their side telling them, ‘Get up in their face,’ they take that literally, and they think that gives them a license to be very aggressive, be harassing, throw people out of restaurants, and I don’t think anybody wants to live in a country like that”
Violence from the left is escalating and so are there threats, for instance, the Antifa organization in Oregon has taken control of Portland. You can watch the video that has been all over the news the past few days, that shows Antifa control in Portland, the video is here.
