Sen. Rand Paul on Monday did not mince words when describing the political fate of rival Democrats if societal conditions continue the way they are going.
In an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, the Kentucky Republican warned Dems that a “day of reckoning” is coming in blue enclaves where liberal, soft-on-crime policies are being blamed for dramatic increases in crime.
He also slammed Democrats over increased violence and abrasive rhetoric used towards Republican legislators.
Citing the very minimal mainstream media coverage of the attack on Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), who is running for governor of his state, last week, Paul suggested “the left wing is egging this on.”
“And if we want to end this [violence] we have to start locking people up,” Paul added.
Calling for accountability in crime-ridden areas like New York, Chicago, St. Louis, Washington, D.C., and other Democrat-run metropolises, the GOP senator said Americans are fed up with the lack of law and order in the country.
“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,” Paul predicted.
“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,” the U.S. Senator added.
“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 continued.
“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,” he concluded.
Paul also reminded Fox News viewers how he was violently assaulted in 2017, suffering six broken ribs. He claimed one media outlet called the “violence against me … justified.”
Last week, Rep. Lee Zeldin, the GOP nominee in the New York gubernatorial race, was giving a speech when a man climbed on the stage and to stab the candidate.
“His words as he tried to stab me a few hours ago were ‘you’re done,’ but several attendees, including , quickly jumped into action & tackled the guy. Law enforcement was on the scene within minutes. The attacker will likely be instantly released under NY’s laws,” Zeldin posted to Twitter following the attack.
