Senator Rand Paul was viciously attacked outside the White House Thursday night following the President’s nomination acceptance speech; reminding voters of Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s calls for “unrest in the streets” just weeks ago.
“This is as much about public outcry, organizing and mobilizing and applying pressure,” Pressley said, “So that this GOP-led Senate and these governors that continue to carry water for this administration, putting American people in harm’s way, turning a deaf ear to the needs of our families and our communities – hold them accountable.
“Make the phone calls, send the emails, show up,” she continued. “You know, there needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there’s unrest in our lives.”
After Sen. Rand Paul was surrounded by the violent left-wing mob in Washington, D.C. last night, recent comments made by prominent Democrats are striking.

Senator Rand Paul discussed his harrowing attack Thursday night after an unhinged mob descended on the Republican lawmaker; saying the crowd “would have killed me” if not for DC police officers.
“We walked one block, but as we walked we could see some police in the distance but we also saw a mob of people screaming and yelling. Fortunately, we got to the police, otherwise I don’t think we would have survived,” said Paul.
“The Policemen were forming a barricade with their bodies,” he added. “We waited, but the crowd was getting bigger and bigger and pushing in. It got worse and worse and worse. Finally, we decided to make a move. They were shouting threats to hurt us and kill us.”

RAND PAUL ATTACKED: US Senator Rand Paul ASSAULTED in Kentucky
United States Senator Rand Paul was viciously assaulted at his home in Bowling Green, Kentucky over the weekend; receiving five fractured ribs and a bruised lung during a violent altercation with his neighbor.
Top staffer Doug Stafford released a public statement Sunday, saying the junior Senator from Kentucky received serious injuries that will take “weeks” to heal.
“Senator Paul has five rib fractures including 3 displaced fractures,” Stafford told the Bowling Green Daily News. “This type of injury is caused by high velocity severe force. It is not clear exactly how soon he will return to work, as the pain is considerable as is the difficulty in getting around, including flying.”
Rene Boucher, Paul’s 59-year-old neighbor was arrested on Friday and charged with assaulting the GOP lawmaker.
Court filings say Boucher “tackled Paul from behind,” and viciously attacked the Senator while he was on the ground.
“Senator Paul and Kelley appreciate everyone’s thoughts and well wishes and he will be back fighting for liberty in the Senate soon,” added Stafford.
