U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., was attacked by a “crazed mob” of more than 100 people after leaving the White House following President Trump’s acceptance speech at the Republican Convention, Fox News reports.
“Just got attacked by an angry mob of over 100, one block away from the White House, he wrote on Twitter early Friday. “Thank you to @DCPoliceDept for literally saving our lives from a crazed mob.”
Exactly how does this have anything to do with Black Lives Matters agenda of “defunding the police” or “justice”? All I see is a mob threatening violence against Rand Paul that should have never even been allowed to get that close to him.

Rand Paul thanked the DC Police for what he felt was, “saving his life” from the crazed mob that he felt threatened by during the chaos.

Police formed a wall around Paul and his wife, Kelley Paul as protesters chanted, “Breonna Taylor” and “no justice, no peace!”
More from Fox:
“They were shouting threats to us, to kill us, to hurt us, but also threats saying shout, shouting ‘say her name,’ Breonna Taylor, and it’s like you couldn’t reason with this mob, but I’m actually the author of the Breonna Taylor law to end no-knock raids, so the irony is lost on these idiots that they’re trying to kill the person who’s actually trying to get rid of no-knock raids,” he said.
Paul said he’s authored 22 criminal justice reforms with President Trump and former President Barack Obama, but the demonstrators were still yelling: “We’re not going to let you go alive unless you’ll say you’re for criminal justice reform.”
If not for the police, Paul said he could’ve been killed or recovering in the hospital, adding that people followed him into the hotel.
“I truly believe this with every fiber of my being, had they gotten at us they would have gotten us to the ground, we might not have been killed, might just have been injured by being kicked in the head, or kicked in the stomach until we were senseless,” he said.
“You’ve seen the pictures of what they do to you. If the police are not there, if you defund the police, if we become Portland, if America becomes Portland, what’s going to happen is people are going to be pummeled and kicked in the head and left senseless on the curb,” he said. “That would have happened to us, I promise you, had we not had the D.C. Police to support us, we are thankful we have police, and we’ve got to wake up. We can’t have the whole country, we can’t have Joe Biden rule the country and have no police. I mean, we can’t walk down the street in D.C. safely now. That’s how bad it is.”
Cities across our nation are burning by rioters, businesses are being looted and destroyed and innocent people are being attacked. While one can understand that our justice system is corrupted by greed and 0 equality, destroying our nation is not the solution.
Black Lives Matter has made it clear that they are not even united in their cause and while some are peaceful protests that are after justice and to hold accountable corrupt police officers, the majority are nothing but paid thugs to create chaos.
