Bowling Green, Kentucky. (Updated) Sen. Rand Paul, a well know Libertarian leaning republican and free speech proponent, was violently attacked by his radically Leftist neighbor on the Antifa’s “Refuse Fascism Day” while mowing his lawn. The AP is reporting that the attacker is Rene Boucher, 59, of Bowling Green, Kentucky. Boucher was arrested and charged with 4th degree assault.
The attack was first reported to have caused Sen. Paul minor injuries but a recent update shows that his injuries were quite severe. The Washington Post Reports; “‘This type of injury is caused by high velocity severe force. It is not clear exactly how soon he will return to work, as the pain is considerable as is the difficulty in getting around, including flying,’ Stafford said. Paul has lung contusions, or bruises, caused by the broken ribs, Stafford said. He could not say whether one lung was bruised or both, but said Paul’s recovery could last several months. Such fractures can cause other significant medical problems, including internal bleeding, damage to other organs or pneumonia.”
Yet the media, which has been all but forced to report the reality of the severity of this attack after trying to down play it, is still pretending there is no know motive for the attack despite the fact that it happened on Antifa’s “Refuse Facism Day,” a day when the Leftist, radical, terror group had planned mass acts of violence as well as protests against the Trump “regime.”
This Nightmare Must End:
The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!”
Many radical Leftists were announcing publicly that they would not only be protesting but that they would be attacking and murdering those people they deem to be “fascist.” Tom Bloke, an Antifa leader, threatened on Twitter, on October 30th, that Antifa super soldiers were going to “behead white parents and business owners” on November 4th.
Many other Antifa have been claiming for weeks that November 4th would be a time to kill all Trump voters, gun owners and conservatives.
Most Antifa chickened out however, first by claiming in the main stream press that they were “joking” or that the Alt Right was propping up a “conspiracy theory” especially after the Antifa day of action turned out to be a day of sleeping in and not showing up.
A quick look at the anesthesiologist neighbor of Rand Paul’s Facebook page shows a man completely obsessed with Donald Trump. Boucher’s Facebook for over a year is nearly exclusively radical anti Trump extremism and Russia conspiracy theories.
Rene Boucher was a man singleminded and overcome with hatred for the president and for conservatives. His rage was nourished by the mainstream press and Leftist entertainers such as Steven Colbert, Saturday Nigt Live and Rachel Maddow.
Yet we are still being sold the story, by Fox News, AP, CNN and others, that this was an ongoing neighborly dispute that just happened to escalate into violence on the very day Antifa was calling for violence against conservatives like Rand Paul.
Update 11.9.17: We knew it! Advirosrs for Rand Paul all calling the “long standing distribute”claim Fake News! Sen. Paul had no long standing disputes with his neighbor and was totally blindsided! From BigLeauguePolitics.com : “A senior advisor to Senator Rand Paul is setting the record straight about last week’s assault — asserting that reports of a longstanding dispute between the neighbors is fake news and referring to the attacker as ‘violent’ and ‘disturbed.’
Earlier on Thursday, Paul’s neighbor Rene Boucher plead not guilty to breaking six of the senator’s ribs.
‘Last week Senator Paul was vigorously assaulted by someone in his neighborhood. This is a serious criminal matter involving serious injury, and is being handled by local and federal authorities,’ Doug Stafford’s statement began.
The statement went on to call out the fake news which claimed that the neighbors had been at odds over landscaping, asserting that the Pauls had not spoken with him in ‘many years.’
‘As to reports of a longstanding dispute with the attacker, the Pauls have had no conversations with him in many years. The first ‘conversation’ with the attacker came after Sen. Paul’s ribs were broken. This was not a ‘fight’, it was a blindside, violent attack by a disturbed person. Anyone claiming otherwise is simply uninformed or seeking media attention,’ Stafford concluded.”
