Senator Rand Paul was assaulted by a violent Black Lives Matter mob as he left the Republican National Convention in DC on Thursday night.
Ironically, the “protesters” were demanding he say Breonna Taylor’s name — apparently unaware that he introduced the Justice for Breonna Taylor Act in June to stop no-knock raids. He worked with her parents to do so.
“After talking with Breonna Taylor’s family, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s long past time to get rid of no-knock warrants. This bill will effectively end no-knock raids in the United States,” said Sen. Paul at the time.
As Sen. Paul and his wife were being escorted by police away from the event, a “protester” rushed up and shoved a police officer holding a bike into him. The Kentucky senator checked on the officer before getting out of harms way himself.

“Just got attacked by an angry mob of over 100, one block away from the White House. Thank you to @DCPoliceDept for literally saving our lives from a crazed mob,” Sen. Paul tweeted after the incident.

DC became a warzone on Thursday night as “protesters” from all over the nation convened to oppose President Donald Trump’s RNC speech. Multiple people were assaulted and threats were made that they were going to burn down the historic St. John’s Church that they previously lit on fire in June.
A hideous leftist militant also assaulted an elderly man.
