Last night, I reported that Rand Paul was threatened with a suspicious package with white powder. This threat followed a raft of attacks on social media against him from folks on the left who were disturbed he wasn’t getting vaccinated because he had natural immunity after having had the Wuhan coronavirus. Many of the attacks on social media encouraged violence against Paul by cheering on his neighbor who had previously attacked him. Many were also by blue-checked Twitter users. But Twitter didn’t suspend them.
There’s now more detail on the threat to Paul and indeed it looks like it was related to that encouragement on social media.
Included with the white powder that was sent to Paul at his home in Kentucky was a picture showing him beaten up after his neighbor attacked him. It had a rifle pointed at him and the words, “I’ll finish what your neighbor started you motherf—–”
Right now there are a number of such threats against Paul all over Twitter. Yet Twitter hasn’t shut down any of them. Some have been up for years.
Paul’s neighbor attacked him in 2017, jumping him unprovoked and breaking six of his ribs. Paul later had to have part of his lung removed because of the serious damage done from the attack.
As Paul noted yesterday, one of the people encouraging violence against him by glorifying his neighbor was the 80s singer Richard Marx.
A crazy person who sees all this might think that he was going to be lauded, even rewarded, for such an action because of the blue check encouragement.
Paul blasted Twitter for allowing the attacks against him on Twitter.
Is Twitter going to finally take action against these threats? They’ve been allowed for years and stoked by a lot of blue-check accounts, yet Jack has done nothing. But meanwhile they’re banning people for all kinds of other nonsense. But actual threats apparently are cool.
This isn’t the first threat against Paul from those on the left. Paul was harassed, threatened and pushed around by a BLM mob last year when leaving the Republican convention. He also was shot at by a Bernie Bro during the GOP baseball practice shooting where GOP members of Congress were being targeted.
