I’ve written much about Rand Paul’s violent assault which landed him in the emergency room with 6 broken ribs (including 3 displaced fractures), bruises to his lungs, and a pleural effusion. The Kentucky Senator was mowing his lawn when his neighbor attacked him from behind.  His neighbor pleaded not guilty to a charge of fourth-degree misdemeanor assault.

If you cracked up at that description, you might be a radical leftist.

Apparently, liberals believe that Paul’s assault is just oh-so-funny, and the laughs keep coming.  Last night, the Kentucky Senator took the floor of the Senate Paul to postpone the budget vote in order to add an amendment to control spending.  Sounds reasonable, right?  After all, they are spending our money.  Paul managed to block the vote — the Senate then approved a two year budget deal — but not before several celebrities took the moment to mock him and make jokes about his attack.

Bette Midler was the first to chime in, asking “Where’s Rand Paul’s neighbor when we need him?”

 

Producer and writer John Levenstein said the exact same thing — hope his writings aren’t always this derivative:

Oh and this HuffPo editor also had some charming things to say.  He tweeted, “Tonight, everyone in the Senate is Rand Paul’s aggrieved neighbor.”

Also, don’t forget that immediately after the attack, a GQ writer actually victim-blamed the senator in a rude article that is still up on their site.   Can you imagine if a prominent conservative magazine made fun of a liberal attack victim? A woman who came forward during the #MeToo movement?

The next time you hear a Democrat say “When they go low, we go high” or “Love trumps hate,” remember this.  Liberals are not about peace and love.  If they are so quick to mock a victim of a federal crime, realize they’re really only about power and hate.
