No politician has had a target put on their back more than Rand Paul, a man who is hated by the unhinged left and who once again received a death threat on Monday.
The Kentucky Republican triggered liberals after he declined to take “the jab”. He has now acknowledged that a suspicious package was sent to his Bowling Green home with the message “I’ll finish what your neighbor started, you motherf**ker”. the package contained a “white powder” substance that was determined to be non-toxic by law enforcement.
Also included was an image of the senator on crutches with a gun pointed at his head. This is a highly disturbing omen considering the poisonous atmosphere of hate and violence that has been unleashed in America by Democrats, the media, and social media companies.

The neighbor reference was over the 2017 incident when Paul was minding his own business and mowing his lawn when he was viciously attacked by a man named Rene Boucher who delivered a blindside tackle on the sitting U.S. senator.
The attack left Paul with serious injuries including multiple broken ribs and a damaged lung, part of which had to be surgically removed. Boucher’s motivation allegedly stemmed from a dispute over landscaping, a seemingly trivial reason for such a savage assault.
Paul seemed to blame the latest threat on a tweet from singer Richard Marx (you can’t make these names up) who had several hits back in the 1980s and 1990s. On Sunday Marx tweeted that he would like to hug Boucher and buy him drinks.
I’ll say it again: If I ever meet Rand Paul’s neighbor I’m going to hug him and buy him as many drinks as he can consume.

While Marx denied that he intended to encourage violence against the senator, Paul, and his family have received so many threats that he understandably takes such rhetoric very seriously.
I take these threats immensely seriously. As a repeated target of violence, it is reprehensible that Twitter allows C-list celebrities to encourage violence against me and my family. https://t.co/e1rQ6uwPdf

According to Politico which first reported the news; the FBI and Capitol Police are investigating the package. The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that the Warren County Sherriff’s Office is also involved.
Paul was also threatened in 2018 when police arrested a man who said that he intended to use an axe to chop the senator along with his wife and kids into pieces.

In addition to being attacked in his own front yard, Paul was present on the day when a deranged Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire on the GOP congressional baseball team on a Virginia practice field. The man was driven into a murderous rage after watching MSNBC.
On a beautiful summer morning, the tranquility was shattered when James Hodgkinson showed up and proceeded to spray the field with bullets, hitting Republican Rep. Steve Scalise who nearly lost his life. Hodgkinson was quickly put down like the mad dog that he was by police who were able to prevent a full-blown massacre. In his possessions he had an assassination list of Republican lawmakers, so the carnage could have been immense.
Both Paul and Scalise expressed dismay at the FBI’s refusal to accurately classify the shooter as a domestic violent extremist. Paul blasted the decision, “I was present at the baseball practice where a Bernie Sanders supporter nearly killed Rep. Steve Scalise,” he said. “It would seem that his goal was to kill individual members of Congress since he had a list of targets in his pocket. He also was heard to yell, ‘this is for healthcare!’ To argue that this assassination attempt was suicide by cop is unsupported by the facts.”
Biden’s FBI has reason to downplay such political violence from the Left. Democrats and the media continue to hammer the false “insurrection” narrative about the mostly peaceful protest that resulted in the brief occupation of the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
Paul has had an elevated profile since he tore down the false god that is Dr. Anthony S. Fauci. He confronted the unelected authority of public policy about his approval of funding for the dangerous “gain of function” research at the Chinese lab where the coronavirus may have originated.
With Jews being beaten in the streets and Republican members of Congress being threatened, the Democrats and media bear responsibility for the dangerous climate that currently exists in America.
