Senator Rand Paul vowed this past weekend that a “day of reckoning” is coming for Democrats because Americans are sick and tried of spiralling crime and violence dominating their cities.
Appearing on Hannity, Paul spoke of the Democrats’ double standards on political violence in the wake of an attack on GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin last week during a campaign speech.
“The left wing is egging this on,” Paul urged, adding “and if we want to end this we have to start locking people up.”
Paul compared the media coverage of the attack on Zeldin to how the media covered Paul being violently attacked a few years ago, noting that the a Louisville Courier reported said “violence against me was justified.”
Paul went on to decry the rise of crime and violence, noting “There’s going to come a day of reckoning where the people who live in New York City – crime disproportionately affects those in poor neighborhoods and those who are minorities. One day they’re going to rise up and say, ‘We’ve had enough. The Democrats are not protecting our children.’”
Paul continued, “Kids are dying at the bus stop. Kids are dying on the subway. The Democrats don’t care about your kids. And it continues to happen decade after decade.”
“There’s going to be a day that people are going to wake up and say, ‘We’ve had enough. We’re going to vote for law and order.’ And Lee Zeldin is the law and order candidate,” Paul asserted.
“So I think there is a chance that people will say, ‘I don’t care, Black, White, whatever. I’m not associated with any party. I want a stop to the crime and we have to put people in jail.’ I think that’s coming,” Paul added.
