Almost immediately after President Donald Trump and multiple Republican National Convention speakers hammered home the message that in Joe Biden’s America, people aren’t safe, a massive mob of “Black Lives Matter” rioters surrounded Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and his wife as they walked home from the White House. The Pauls were immediately assisted by DC Police and were able to get to their hotel safely – but only because of that assistance.
Once he was safe, Sen. Paul tweeted his gratitude.
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.

When the “peaceful protesters” surrounded the Pauls, they were shouting “Say her name!” referring to Breonna Taylor, the Kentucky woman who was killed during the execution of a no-knock warrant issued against her ex-boyfriend.
Video of the incident depicts the Pauls being escorted by DC police, who were physically attacked by the mob and were forced to use bicycles as makeshift shields.

D.C. police officers had to escort @RandPaul to the Hotel Washington as dozens of demonstrators followed and jeered him. At least one person is being treated by protest medics for what appears to be an OC spray injury. pic.twitter.com/fOrKQ2C29D

Where do we draw the line? A sitting United States Senator was attacked (for the second time). What’s stopping these violent anarchists from attacking any one of us? Nothing (except our guns and ammo, so buy more).
Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch has an excellent suggestion.
A United State Senator, @RandPaul, was almost killed tonight by a mob of violent communists. President @RealDonaldTrump should invoke the Insurrection Act and take other appropriate action to preserve our Republic.

Barring that, normal Americans will take their own appropriate action.
