The Republican senator from Kentucky received a mysterious package at his home address filled with a white powder and a picture of himself completely blindfolded, beaten, and with a gun pointed at his head. The envelope itself had another violent death threat message on it.
The FBI is studying the package sent by an unknown person to determine whether the white powder inside is a harmful substance. At the same time, they are trying to find those responsible for the attack.
Fox News accessed the image on the envelope in which Sen. Rand Paul has his arm and neck bandaged and using a crutch and a drawing of a large caliber gun pointed at his temple. Underneath, a message reads, “I’ll finish what your neighbor started, you son of a &$%#/.”
The FBI’s Louisville field office told Fox News it was “working with the Warren County Sheriff’s Office and the Capitol Police by providing forensic and technical assistance.” U.S. Capitol Police said they were also investigating the package.
The message written on the package refers to the time in 2017 when Paul was attacked by a neighbor, who beat and severely injured him, breaking five of his ribs. According to the person who wrote the threat, he will return precisely to finish the job started by the senator’s violent neighbor.
“I take these threats immensely seriously,” Paul wrote in a statement Monday. “I have been targeted multiple times now, it is reprehensible that Twitter allows C-list celebrities to advocated for violence against me and my family. This must stop. Just this weekend Richard Marx called for violence against me and now we receive this despicable powder filled letter.”
Paul’s message refers to renowned singer Richard Marx posting a message on his Twitter account on Sunday clearly inciting violence:
“I’ll say it again: If I ever meet Rand Paul’s neighbor I’m going to hug him and buy him as many drinks as he can consume.”
But as is now customary with Silicon Valley’s big tech, Marx’s intimidating message remains current and publicly available on Twitter while censoring valuable information about the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus or conservative messages that don’t go along with the platform’s leftist editorial.
In August 2020, Paul and his wife, Kelley, were attacked by a group of violent rioters who lay in wait outside the hotel where they stayed during the Republican National Convention—just yards from the White House.
“The crowd quickly swelled. One of them shouted, ‘We’ve got Rand Paul trapped!’ First, there were a handful of people, then 30, then 60, then more than 100 screaming, out-of-control lunatics,” Paul wrote in a Fox News story days after the incident.
The police eventually showed up and assembled a human cordon of sorts and managed to move them to safety, while the violent people shouted, insulted, and issued explicit threats.
Paul has earned the enmity of leftist sectors after defending conservative values and supporting former President Donald Trump. He has also recently spoken out against transgender ideologies, demanding an explanation from Rachel Levine, Biden’s nominee for assistant secretary of Health and Human Services, about her support for gender reassignment surgeries on minors.
He has also been a staunch defender of electoral justice and has denounced Democratic corruption during the last presidential election. In April, he called on all his supporters to stop drinking Coca-Cola because its manufacturer opposes Georgia’s election reforms. Regarding his stance on President Joe Biden’s policies, Paul has been unsparing in his criticism. Specifically, he has been energetic in criticizing the high public spending of the new administration, repeatedly mentioning that the measures are typical of leftist governments, even warning that the policies implemented could lead the U.S. to become the new Venezuela.
