Victim Blame: Media Suggests Rand Paul Deserved To Be Attacked
Victim Blame: Media Suggests Rand Paul Deserved To Be Attacked by Joe Jarvis – The Daily Bell
The media has got their narrative and they are sticking to it.
It doesn’t matter that a shooter specifically targetted a Republican softball practice in June. It didn’t fit the narrative that the right is brewing hatred and violence. So most media was quiet about the Democrat Bernie supporter shooter.
Senator Rand Paul was one of the members of Congress at that softball practice in June. And now, for the second time this year, he has been literally attacked by a Democrat.
Rand Paul was attacked at his home earlier this week by his neighbor. First news outlets made it seem like this was just a silly little case of neighbors feuding over the length of the lawn. But then it came out that Rand suffered 5 fractured ribs. He was blindsided after cutting his lawn, still wearing ear protection.
And if the nonchalant attitude of the media wasn’t enough, GQ published a piece called Rand Paul Sounds Like the Worst Guy to Have as a Neighbor.
That’s it. Blame the victim. Rand Paul deserved to be attacked because he is an annoying neighbor.
GQ never bothered to find out whether Rand Paul actually broke any of the rules, nor what specifically those were. But they did note that he composts and grows pumpkins on his property. Sounds like a pretty big scumbag.
Now to be fair, I don’t know why Paul would buy a home in a strict neighborhood. By joining a voluntary neighborhood association, you are making an agreement that if you buy the land, you will abide by the pre-existing rules. A true libertarian would have bought an off the grid bunker somewhere in the remote hills of Kentucky.
