Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said Wednesday on Fox News that he was tired of the violence coming from the policial left toward conservatives as well as the biased media who lets them get away with it.
Paul said that “hundreds of people on Twitter every day are wishing me violence, wishing my family violence, Twitter claims that they have a policy, but they don’t take it down,” he said. “They leave it up.”
“I almost died at one time from the infections and from the lung surgery that I had (after a neighbor attacked him over politics)” Paul said. “And they’re allowed to go on Twitter every day. This company allows them to go. And it’s a private company, so they can do it if they want. But this is a private company that basically hates conservatives, hates Republicans.”
Paul said that maybe it’s time for Republicans to leave Twitter and other left-wing social media platforms.
He is tired of the left committing violence and blaming it on the right, he added, referencing a Bernie Sanders (I-VT) supporter who shot Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) and other Republicans at a congressional baseball game.
