Some on the left and in media like to pretend that there’s some kind of justification for the BLM riots.
“They’re upset about black people being killed by police” or “They just want reform.”
Bull. We passed that false argument months ago. The riots are about creating chaos and moving everything further to the left. That’s what they really want. So take them at their word, not how the Democrats or the media want to smooth it all over.
Because if it actually was about “justice,” facts would matter. It would matter in Minneapolis that the man committed suicide and was not killed by police. It would matter if the suspect resisted or had a knife as in the case of Jacob Blake. But it doesn’t matter, because it’s just an excuse to push their chaos which really has nothing to do with any of the people they ask you to name.
When the BLM surrounded Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and his wife on the way back to their hotel from the Republican convention at the White House, they were pushing, shoving and screaming “say her name,” referencing Breonna Taylor. You can see them shove the police officer with the bike into Paul.

Paul has been attacked/threatened multiple times by leftists, he sustained 6 broken ribs from an attack by his neighbor. He also was on the baseball field when the Bernie Bro tried to gun down GOP members of Congress. So no doubt he had flashbacks under the circumstances. Paul said the BLM folks also threatened to kill him. It was such chaos that one of the women in his party actually lost her shoe.
What made this so ironic was as they were harassing him, they demanded that he say Breonna Taylor’s name. Taylor was killed when Louisville police executed a no-knock warrant at her home and her boyfriend fired at the cops, they fired back, killing Taylor.
But it was Rand Paul who actually introduced “Breonna’s Law,” an effort to stop no-knock warrants.
The Justice for Breonna Taylor Act bans federal law enforcement officers from carrying out a warrant “until after the officer provides notice of his or her authority and purpose” and blocks state and local law enforcement agencies that receive Justice Department funding from carrying out warrants that do not require the officer involved “to provide notice of his or her authority and purpose before forcibly entering a premises.”
“After talking with Breonna Taylor’s family, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s long past time to get rid of no-knock warrants,” Paul, a Republican, said in a statement. “This bill will effectively end no-knock raids in the United States.”
But the BLM harassing and threatening him didn’t care that he did that, that he had actually done more than they ever did to “reform” a problematic issue.
But even if he hadn’t done any of that, it’s ridiculous that anyone would be harassed that way especially a U.S. Senator.
From Fox News:
“They were shouting threats to us, to kill us, to hurt us, but also threats saying shout, shouting ‘say her name,’ Breonna Taylor, and it’s like you couldn’t reason with this mob, but I’m actually the author of the Breonna Taylor law to end no-knock raids, so the irony is lost on these idiots that they’re trying to kill the person who’s actually trying to get rid of no-knock raids,” he said.
Paul said he’s authored 22 criminal justice reforms with President Trump and former President Barack Obama, but the demonstrators were still yelling: “We’re not going to let you go alive unless you’ll say you’re for criminal justice reform.”
But they’re not going to like that he’s calling for an FBI investigation, indicating he thought a lot of the folks were likely from out of state and came across state lines to incite a riot.
“I believe there are going to be people who are involved with the attack on us that actually were paid to come here, are not from Washington, D.C., and are sort of paid to be anarchists,” he said. “This is disturbing because really, if you’re inciting a riot that’s a crime, but if you’re paying someone to incite a riot that person needs to go to jail as well.”
“They were inciting a riot and they would have killed us had the police not been there,” the senator added.
He slammed the Democratic presidential ticket for violence in Democrat-run cities.
“It’s become so dangerous for us and I don’t hear Joe Biden or Kamala Harris saying one thing about the violence. This mob is their voters. This is the new Democrat party, and if we don’t resist this, the United States is going to become Portland. We’re going to become Chicago. All of these failed cities Democrats have run, the president said in his speech,” he said. “If we allow them to take over the White House, we are going to become Portland, the country will be on fire, we have to have law and order and we have to support the police. I can’t say that strong enough.”
