Rand Paul's Wife Sends Warning to the Mob after Death Threats: 'We Have Guns'
Kelley Paul blasts radical-left extremists after death threat sent to family home
Kelley Paul, the wife of Republican Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), took no prisoners as she sent out a warning to the radical-left extremist mob after a death threat was sent to their family home.
In a Twitter thread, Kelley Paul blasted political activists who are threatening her family, warning "we have guns."
"I got the death threat letter and called the FBI,” Kelley wrote.
"This kind of violent threat is fomented against Rand daily by [pro-Democrat group Really American], a Dem PAC that pays thugs like [Democrat-funded propagandist Majid Padellan], to celebrate the assault that nearly killed Rand. @DNC ignores.
"[Singer Richard Marx] was inciting more violence just this weekend.
“For years people like @BetteMidler have cheered Rand’s horrific attack and serious injuries."
"The former teacher of the year @RodRobinsonRVA tweeted that Rand’s attacker was a ‘hero’ and urged Mitch McConnell’s neighbors to ‘step up’," Paul continued.
"Why is he still teaching?”
“I am sick of the hatred and vitriol from people who boast of their ‘empathy and compassion’ in their bios.
"Rand will continue to stand up for our constitutionally protected liberties.”
“We won’t be intimidated. And yes, we have guns,” Paul concluded.

I am sick of the hatred and vitriol from people who boast of their “empathy and compassion” in their bios. Rand will continue to stand up for our constitutionally protected liberties. He will keep questioning the “experts.” We won’t be intimidated. And yes, we have guns.— Kelley Paul (@KelleyAshbyPaul) May 25, 2021
Kelley Paul said that neither she nor her husband will be backing down in the face of death threats and a package allegedly containing white powder that was sent to their Kentucky home.
The Capitol Police confirmed to news outlets that officials are investigating the incident, while Sen. Paul, who was injured after his neighbor attacked him several years ago, said he will “take these threats immensely seriously.”
In a series of tweets, the senator’s wife noted that a number of celebrities and high-profile individuals have made comments cheering the attack against her husband in 2017.
Paul pointed to reports saying that a Democratic PAC paid the operator of the “BrooklynDad_Defiant” Twitter account - a leftist troll who typically posts pro-Democratic talking points.
She also noted that 1980s pop singer Richard Marx “was inciting more violence” recently.
Marx, known for the hit “Right Here Waiting,” celebrated the actions of Paul’s neighbor, Rene Boucher, who attacked the Kentucky Republican in 2017 and left him with several broken ribs.
Boucher pleaded guilty to the assault.
Over the past weekend, Sen. Paul, who is an ophthalmologist, said that he will not receive the COVID-19 vaccine and argued that he is likely naturally immune after contracting the virus last year.
That statement may have been what prompted Marx to praise Boucher.
