Rand Paul’s Wife Wants Cory Booker To Retract Statement That Encourages Violence, Intimidation

President Trump’s presidency did not create the hatred of the left. It merely exposed what was always there.

Sen. Cory Booker has joined the irresponsible group of leftist politicians, led by Rep. Maxine Waters, that is flagrantly calling for violence and Sen. Rand Paul’s wife, Kelley, is calling him out for it. Just think what people like that would do with armed police or soldiers to direct!

Kelley claims with all the death threats she and her family are receiving, she sleeps with a gun close to the bed and has upgraded home security. This is outrageous!

These Leftists Representatives and Senators have unleashed a mob hoping they will take down Republicans. They do not understand when the mob does not get their way; it begins to “eat it’s own.” It has already begun to do this in small measures.

There is also a process that Congress can use to bar a member because of deciduous behavior, and this is the perfect time to use that process.

Kelley Paul, wife of Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.), blamed Sen. Cory Booker (D., N.J.) in an open letter (below) Wednesday for encouraging violence directed toward her family and those of other lawmakers.

“My husband, Rand Paul, and our family have suffered intimidation and threats,” Paul wrote.

“Someone posted our home address, and Rand’s cell number, on the internet,” she wrote. Police arrested a former Democratic Senate staffer on Wednesday for uploading information about Republican senators to the internet.

Paul framed her piece as “An open letter to Senator Cory Booker.” She shared that her home has required added security following recent events, and she accused Booker of encouraging protestor violence and endangering her husband’s life. She traced the emboldened protestors back to comments Booker made in July. Speaking in Washington, D.C., Booker urged citizens to “go to the Hill today” and take active measures. “Please, get up in the face of some congresspeople,” he said.

Here is the letter from Kelley she sent to 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.

He was not okay last November, when a violent and unstable man attacked him from behind while he was working in our yard, breaking six ribs and leaving him with lung damage and multiple bouts of pneumonia. Kentucky’s secretary of state, Alison Lundergan Grimes, recently joked about it in a speech. MSNBC commentator Kasie Hunt laughingly said on air that Rand’s assault was one of her “favorite stories.” Cher, Bette Midler, and others have lauded his attacker on Twitter. I hope that these women never have to watch someone they love struggle to move or even breathe for months on end.

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?

Senator Booker, Rand has worked with you to co-sponsor criminal justice reform bills. He respects you, and so do I. I would call on you to retract your statement. I would call on you to condemn violence, the leaking of elected officials’ personal addresses (our address was leaked from a Senate directory given only to senators), and the intimidation and threats that are being hurled at them and their families.

Sincerely,

Kelley Paul

Booker needs to go one way or the other. He should be arrested for verbal threats. Every day, ordinary people would be in jail for talking like him.

Anyone who encourages violence has no place in politics. They can too easily get their message out to the public. I stand with Rand Paul’s wife! Booker and the rest of the Democrats are calling for violence against conservatives! It must stop! It will get out of hand if it is not under control!
