    Rand Paul Targeted by Anti-Kavanaugh Protesters in DC Airport

    Rand Paul Targeted by Anti-Kavanaugh Protesters in DC Airport

    “Women deserve better than silence, Mr. Paul.”

    In the spring of 2017, Rand Paul was on the baseball field where Rep. Steve Scalise was shot by a leftist. Less than a year later, Paul was physically attacked by a neighbor.

    Now he is being harassed by leftists over Kavanaugh.

    Henry Rodgers reports at the Daily Signal:

    Kavanaugh Protesters Chase Down Rand Paul at DC Airport

    Protesters against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh chased down Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., at Reagan National Airport just outside Washington, D.C.

    As Paul was exiting the airport Monday, the group of several women began shouting at Paul, asking him if he would call for an investigation into Kavanaugh. Paul did not respond and continued walking, to which one of the women said, “Women deserve better than silence, Mr. Paul.”

    The protesters also screamed “shame” at Paul as he walked out. This comes the same day a group of protesters chased down Georgia Republican Sen. David Perdue and his wife at the same airport.

    See the video below:

    Just two days ago, Senator Paul’s wife Kelley wrote this for CNN in response to Cory Booker, who told activists over the summer to get in the faces of members of Congress:

    My husband, Rand Paul, and our family have suffered intimidation and threats

    An open letter to Senator Cory Booker:

    It’s nine o’clock at night, and as I watch out the window, a sheriff’s car slowly drives past my home. I am grateful that they have offered to do extra patrols, as someone just posted our home address, and Rand’s cell number, on the internet — all part of a broader effort to intimidate and threaten Republican members of Congress and their families. I now keep a loaded gun by my bed. Our security systems have had to be expanded. I have never felt this way in my life.

    In the last 18 months, our family has experienced violence and threats of violence at a horrifying level. I will never forget the morning of the shooting at the congressional baseball practice, the pure relief and gratitude that flooded me when I realized that Rand was okay…

    Earlier this week, Rand was besieged in the airport by activists “getting up in his face,” as you, Senator Booker, encouraged them to do a few months ago. Preventing someone from moving forward, thrusting your middle finger in their face, screaming vitriol — is this the way to express concern or enact change? Or does it only incite unstable people to violence, making them feel that assaulting a person is somehow politically justifiable?

    This is not happening only to Senator Paul. Many Republicans are being harassed in public places, just like Maxine Waters urged an angry mob to do.

    The left is playing with fire and they don’t seem to care.

    @RodFC

    You are correct.
    Thus, additional, antsy and steroidal guards should carry additional katanas, making Senator Paul’s Katana redundant. However you slice it, that stroke would cut down the number of protesters.

    I think we are on the eve of the Left threatening the wrong people, with a bad end result, for them. It’s all fun and games until the holster is unsnapped.

    If protesters surround me in an attempt to prevent me from passing, they’re in for a surprise. The second they touch me, all hell is going to break loose. Let’s see how smug they are after they’ve been beat down by a 55 year old woman.

    I approach this from a different viewpoint – this kind of meaningless confrontational partisanship will inevitably result in an increased distance between politicians and the public.

    When I first went to work at the U.S. Capitol in 1974, I parked on the East Front, went through the Senate side doors to my office – I had an ID that I showed. The public could enter the Capitol – no metal detectors. That was just after Leftists bombed the Capitol in 1971, and before Puerto Rican terrorists bombed the building in 1983.

    Over the next 30 years, access was increasingly restricted; constituents found it more difficult to meet their representatives; metal detectors were added and snail mail and telephone were the best ways to provide input; with the advent of e-mail, voters were further separated from their representatives. Senators represent the entire country but try to e-mail most Senators (and especially Representatives) if you are not a resident of their State. Even if you are successful you receive a canned, usually non-responsive reply written by a 22 year old flunky.

    Post 9-11, the hugely expensive Capitol Visitor Center ensured that constituents are herded into an underground room, divested of packages, and given a highly structured and limited tour of the magnificent building, excluding meeting their representatives.

    As the Partisan Democrat crazies who are given Gallery passes by Maxine Waters, Schumer, Pelosi, Feinstein, Kamala, Booker et al abuse that privilege, and disrupt the Senate and the House,does anyone believe that another separation of representatives and the American people will not be forthcoming?

    With the harassment of Representatives by Democrats in public spaces, as advocated by the despicable Waters that is reflected in this article, does anyone with a functioning intellect believe it will not result in representatives becoming more insular? And don’t forget the attempted mass murder of Republican representatives resulting in the serious wounding of Representative of Scalise by a Leftist.

    All of these barriers between Congressional representatives and the American people (which is being duplicated on the State and Local levels) will ensure that special interest groups with money will be the sole people with access to influence public policy – given the Democrat’s huge advantage in wealthy donors, both individual and groups, maybe this is the plan.

    Man, after what he’s experienced in the last two years, this is one of the LAST people you want to verbally assault.
