‘Blue Checkmarks’ Tweet Approval Of Aggressive Mob That Swarmed Rand Paul

Sen. Rand Paul was only “briefly uncomfortable” one Twitter user claimed. “This is fine with me,” wrote another.


After Sen. Rand Paul was mobbed by protestors as he left the White House on the last night of the 2020 Republican National Convention Thursday, members of the media and verified Twitter users vocalized their their thoughts on why the attack on a sitting US senator was justified.

Protestors harassing Paul and his wife screamed about Breonna Taylor, demanding that he “say her name,” all while ignoring the fact that it was Paul himself who introduced the “Justice for Breonna Taylor Act,” which prohibits law enforcement from using no-knock warrants.

While the mob was clamoring for Paul, who later said in an interview on Fox News that it was “horrific” and that he feared for his life, he expressed his gratitude to the DC Police Department for protecting him and his wife for “literally saving our lives from a crazed mob.”

Sen. Paul’s gratitude for the police, however, did not go over well with some verified users on Twitter, many of who refused to denounce the actions of the chaotic crowd.

Many of them disputed the fact that Rand Paul was attacked, claiming that the protests did not actually “touch” or physically harm him and that he was just “briefly uncomfortable.”

Executive producer of “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” said he is “OK” with the attacks.

A Zagat food editor weighs in:

Others condoned or justified the mob’s actions, claiming that Paul’s political track record gave the horde the right to harass him.

Investigative journalist Marcus Baram says Rand Paul should know better:

Former Daily Beast and Deadspin writer implies Paul deserves this because he opposed D.C. statehood.

Additional tweets accused Sen. Paul and Republicans of overreacting to receive attention and push a political message.

President of The Appeal and host of the Justice in America podcast Josie Duffy Rice deleted this tweet showing her approval of the mob’s actions.

Name-calling was also present in the long list of tweeted criticisms.
