Senator Rand Paul is one of the most principled men in Washington, and along with Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz, he’s been one of President Trump’s staunchest defenders in DC.
Paul landed another body blow against the Democrats trying to impeach Trump in Congress yesterday, calling for the impeachment of Chuck Schumer for inciting violence at the Supreme Court during the Kavanaugh hearings.
“I opposed the notion of — which I think was a misguided notion, a voting to overturn the election either with Congress or with the vice president,” Paul said. “But I think if we are going to criminalize speech and somehow impeach everybody who says, oh, go fight to hear your voices heard, really we ought to impeach Chuck Schumer then. He went to the Supreme Court, stood in front of the Supreme Court, and said specifically, hey Gorsuch, hey Kavanaugh, you’ve unleashed a whirlwind, and you’re going to pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you continue with these awful decisions.”
“This inflammatory wording, this violent rhetoric of Chuck Schumer was so bad that the chief justice, who rarely says anything publicly, immediately said this kind of language is dangerous as a mob tried to invade the Supreme Court,” he continued. “So if people want to hold President Trump accountable for language, there has to be a consistent standard, and to my mind, it’s a partisan farce because they’re not doing anything to Chuck Schumer, not doing anything to Representative Omar, not doing anything to Maxine Waters. It’s just not fair. It’s just partisan politics under a different name.”
Rand Paul isn’t going to let Democrats off the hook, and we in the opposition media won’t either. On the other hand, the mainstream media will try to conceal stories like this.
Every single Democrat in DC is guilty of using inflammatory language, and by their own standards, they should be thrown out of public office and prevented from ever running again.
