Kelley Paul Letter To Cory Booker Regarding the Violence Of The Left Is A Must Read [VIDEO]

There is something about the Kavanaugh nomination that has gotten little notice in the media. And that is the ever increasing violent rhetoric, threats, and intimidation visited against conservatives and Republicans by the Left. Kelley Paul, wife of Senator Rand Paul, wrote a letter to Senator Cory Booker that you’ll want to read.

Quick background. Senator Rand Paul was brutally attacked by his neighbor 18 months ago. His injuries were more severe than anyone thought, and the attack came not too long after the horrific attack on Congressman Steve Scalise.

Did the Democrats learn their lesson after those attacks? NO.

Senator Cory “Spartacus” Booker in last two days stated emphatically that Due Process, the very foundation of our country is predicated upon, DOES NOT MATTER.

That and earlier statements from Booker led to this letter from Kelley Paul:

An open letter to Senator Cory Booker:

It’s nine o’clock at night, and as I watch out the window, a sheriff’s car slowly drives past my home. I am grateful that they have offered to do extra patrols, as someone just posted our home address, and Rand’s cell number on the internet — all part of a broader effort to intimidate and threaten Republican members of Congress and their families. I now keep a loaded gun by my bed. Our security systems have had to be expanded. I have never felt this way in my life.

In the last 18 months, our family has experienced violence and threats of violence at a horrifying level. I will never forget the morning of the shooting at the congressional baseball practice, the pure relief and gratitude that flooded me when I realized that Rand was okay.

He was not okay last November, when a violent and unstable man attacked him from behind while he was working in our yard, breaking six ribs and leaving him with lung damage and multiple bouts of pneumonia. Kentucky’s secretary of state, Alison Lundergan Grimes, recently joked about it in a speech. MSNBC commentator Kasie Hunt laughingly said on air that Rand’s assault was one of her “favorite satires.” Cher, Bette Midler, and others have loaded his attacker on Twitter. I hope that these women never have to watch someone they love struggle to move or even breathe for months on end.

Earlier this week, Rand was besieged in the airport by activists “getting up in his face,” as you, Senator Booker, encouraged them to do a few months ago. Preventing someone from moving forward, thrusting your middle finger in their face, screaming vitriol — is this the way to express concern or enact change? Or does it only incite unstable people to violence, making them feel that assaulting a person is somehow politically justifiable?

Senator Booker, Rand has work with you to co-sponsor criminal justice reform bills. He respects you, and so do I. I would call on you to retract your statement. I would call on you to condemn violence, the leaking of elected officials’ personally addresses (our address was leaked from a Senate directory given only to Senators), and the intimidation and threats that are being hurled at them and their families.

Here is what Cory Booker said then.

“Before I end, that’s my call to action here,” Booker said. “Please don’t just come here today and then go home. Go to the Hill today and get up in the face of some congresspeople.”

As we’ve witnessed in the last few days, protestors are accosting Senators and Congressmen in the hallways, in their offices, in elevators, and more. How long before it becomes violent?

Will Booker now denounce his statement? He should.

Congressman Steve Scalise and Senator Rand Paul are two victims of violence started by rhetoric that has advocated for violence.

I applaud Kelley Paul for her letter. I sincerely hope people will heed her words and learn from them, but I fear too many won’t.

    My only comment is that you proofread this letter and fix the grammar and spelling. I bet Ms. Paul had a correct version issued that this forum has all but slashed.

    These comments by Democrats urging citizens to “get up in the faces” of anyone who opposes them actually started with Barack Hussein Obama. As soon as he was elected, he reminded congresspersons that “We won”, telling Republicans to shut up and go sit in the back of the room, saying “when they bring a knife, we bring a gun”, “reward your friends and punish your enemies”, etc. Condoning violence was even extended to the Black Panthers when they were allowed to get away with voter intimidation in Philly. They stood at the front steps of the voting facility, and brandished billy clubs, telling white voters they could not enter the voting facility. Even Obama’s right-hand foot soldier, Valerie Jarrett, said now that they were in charge, the Republicans were going to see how things are going to be now. The support of violence by Dems did not start with Cory Booker and Maxine Waters. They are just keeping it going.

      You’re crazy! And racist! And lying! Let me screenshot your comments though…

    • GWB says:

      Yes, because we now have a group of politicians openly advocating for an autocracy. They openly despise the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence and the traditions and culture that made our country.

      They advance in violation of their oaths of office.

      The real problem, of course, is the voters who put them there.

      I have this sinking feeling things are about to get a lot worse.

  • […] Sara Carter“My hope is that beyond the vicious partisan rancor, beyond the accusations, we don’t lose sight of what this moral moment is about in this country. And ultimately ask ourselves the question: Is this the right person to sit on the highest court in the land for a lifetime appointment?” asked Booker.“Ultimately—not whether he’s innocent or guilty, this is not a trial … have enough questions been raised that we should not move on to another candidate?” he added.If the questions are baseless, uncorroborated smears, like in this case, then innocence absolutely matters. And Booker doesn't seem to have a problem with political violence either. […]
