Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) took to Fox News on Tuesday to denounce the double standard imposed on the right versus the left when it comes to threats of violence.

Paul is leaving

Paul may have thought of several examples of conservatives being targeted by radical liberals, but the reaction of the media and Big Tech is quite different in these cases than when leftists are targeted.

“[F]or people like this songwriter from a long time ago that no one has ever heard of, the point is, hundreds of people on Twitter every day wish me violence, wish my family violence, Twitter claims to have a policy, but they don’t take it away, ”Paul said. “They leave that in place. Twitter has now announced today that this guy is not violating their policies. So, it is allowed to offer to buy somebody drinks.

“I almost died at one point from the infections and from the lung surgery I had,” he added. “And they’re allowed to go on Twitter every day. This company allows them to leave. And it’s a private business, so they can do it if they want to. But it’s a private business that fundamentally hates conservatives, hates Republicans.

Paul double down

“They don’t want us there. And, at the end of the day, maybe the answer is that Republicans just need to step down. We just have to leave it because every day they allow hundreds, if not thousands of people to wish me and my family violence, ”Paul continued. “And, frankly, I’ve had enough. I’m just – I’m just tired of them allowing it.

“And I’m tired of them blaming him on the right,” he concluded. “I was on the playing field when a Bernie Sanders shooter almost killed Steve Scalise, injuring five other people. So, I’m sick of the violence coming from the left, but I’m sick of the left-wing press blaming everything on Donald Trump or me or others. So, I’m sick of it.
