Rand Paul: A ‘Day of Reckoning Is Coming,’ Americans Will ‘Rise Up’
'The left wing is egging this on'
Senator Rand Paul warned that a “day of reckoning” is coming for Democrats because Americans are sick and tired of spiraling crime and violence in their cities.
Paul accused Democrats of double standards on political violence in the wake of an attack on GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin last week during a campaign speech.
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 said.
"And if we want to end this we have to start locking people up," Paul said.
Paul compared the media coverage of the attack on Zeldin to how the media covered Paul being violently attacked a few years back, noting the report said “violence against me was justified.”
Paul went on to blast the crime and violence in Democrat-controlled cities:
“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,'" he said.
"'The Democrats are not protecting our children.'”
“Kids are dying at the bus stop."
"Kids are dying on the subway," he said.
"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," he said.
"I want a stop to the crime and we have to put people in jail.’ I think that’s coming,” Paul added.
