Sen. Rand Paul is fed up with being accosted by Left-wing thugs pretending to be Black Lives Matter supporters, and he wants the Feds to do something about the harassment.
The Kentucky Republican and his wife were accosted as they left the Republican National Convention Thursday night.
He swears that were it not for DC police officers shielding him from the thugs, he and his wife, Kelley Paul, would have been severely hurt.
Here’s another angle:
BLM inc. just assaulted US Senator Rand Paul who has been shot at before and hospitalized because of his Republican beliefs
This is Joe Biden's party targeting Trump supporters.
If you give them power, they will attack all of us.

Kirk is right, by the way; if the Left ever gets into power, conservatives will have to band together and fight because we’ll be left to our own devices.
In any event, Paul discussed the incident later during an interview.
'They were yelling threats. They were trying to push the police over to get to me,' Paul said during an interview on Fox News. 'They were grabbing at us, and it got worse and worse and worse, and then finally, we decided to make a move. I said we've got to move. If there's not reinforcements, we have to try to get to the hotel which was another block and they were shouting threats to us, to kill us, to hurt us, but also threats, shouting 'say her name, Breonna Taylor,' and it's like you couldn't reason with this mob but I'm actually the author of the Breonna Taylor law to end no-knock raids.'
'So, the irony is lost on these idiots that they are trying to kill the person whose actually trying to get rid of no-knock raids and they were shouting and screaming and just, really these people were unhinged, but I can't tell you how, I'm not sure we would have made it,' Paul added. 'So, as we're walking sort of surrounded by the police, they're attempting to push the police over to get to me, so at one point they push a policeman backwards, he stumbles and he's trying to catch his balance and I catch the back of his flak jacket to stabilize him to make sure he's okay because he's our defense. If he's down the mob is loose on us, and you've seen the pictures of what they do to you.'
Paul also offered a theory that sounds pretty spot on to us.
'There's something going on here,' Paul later noted. 'This is like the FBI needs involved.'
After being asked to clarify, Paul said, 'My feeling is that there is interstate criminal traffic being paid for across state lines, but you won't know it unless you arrest them.'
'Otherwise you just think oh, these are some normal hoodlums from a big city,' Paul continued. 'I promise you that at least some of the members and the people who attacked us were not from D.C. They flew here on a plane with fresh, new clothes and they were paid to be here. It is a crime to do that and it needs to be traced. The FBI needs to investigate, but the only way you can do it is you have to arrest people. And usually we say, 'Oh, well you didn't get hurt, so we're not going to arrest them.' They were inciting a riot and they would have killed us had the police not been there.'
'They all need to be arrested and I'm not saying forever, but arrested, questioned,' Paul added. 'They need to say where are you staying, and the bills need to be subpoenaed by a judge to say who paid for your bill, how did you get here on a plane, and staying in a fancy hotel, and yet you're acting like a criminal? Somethings going on here, and it's much bigger than people think, but the bottom line is we can't let the United States become Portland and that's what my fear is, that the United States is going to be on fire if we have no police, and look, I've been for reform.'
Enough, already. It may take President Trump and an executive order, but these organized threats of intimidation and harassment are nothing more than textbook terrorism.
