      @This Is an Overrated Image imaging being soo hateful towards other American citizens standing up against inequality and racial injustice. You obviously don’t stand with you fellow Americans. Just another trumptard looking to divide our people.

      @eddie hernandez Imagine broadcasting inequality and racial injustice as an excuse to loot and destroy small businesses, And then criminalize anyone who disagrees with or ignores your narrative and call them Nazis for it, Heck, even assault them over it. What are you guys bitching and moaning about anyways, If black lives do matter then why don’t you send donations to black community so they can build independent businesses aside from relying on Asian and Caucasian business so not most don’t need to live in ghetto no longer? Oh wait, Too simple and easy to do so, Money goes to the blue donkey party anyways.

      @eddie hernandez And by the way, Calling people hateful for turning down the communist movement, You’re not going to get sympathy from them, Instead what you did is create more enemies and got more people red-pilled, You think intimidating people who are minding their business at re-opened restaurants is for the greater good? Think again punk.

      @This Is an Overrated Image first of all you trump supporters arent fighting agaisnt communism. You are fighting against other Americans. Also I think you are mixing one group of people with a different group of people. I’d rather stand up against hate, racism, and division and instead work together with the opposing side. Something that you trump supporters can not comprehend.

      @This Is an Overrated Image also I Do Not support intimidating anyone while they eat. Its just not right. No matter what side you are on.

    whats funny is that Rand Paul wrote a Justice for Breonna Taylor Act so they clearly have no idea who or what they are talking about

    • Pcgamers Rule | August 31, 2020 at 2:08 PM | Reply

      @Just a Guy What anecdote? This was a purpose of the electoral college initially. It was to show why we need a different system now, since ya know, the country snd world are a very different place now and thus should be ran differently than 200 plus years ago. Makes sense to most people. Which is why public opinion for reform is higher now than ever. More and more people want things like UBI and universal Healthcare, so being a country, “for the people” should entail to listening to what they want hmm?

    • Pcgamers Rule | August 31, 2020 at 2:11 PM | Reply

      @Just a Guy If what I’m saying is wrong then back up what you say with sources. I don’t see you making any source supported claims

    • Pcgamers Rule | August 31, 2020 at 2:15 PM | Reply

      What I said definitely occured at the time of the electoral college. However the electoral college was just a cobbled together method to elect the president, which we should definitely rethink now, as people back centuries ago had no access to public education and now we do. Back then far more people were illiterate and slavery had a big part in the decision to create the electoral college as well. My point has been that the USA is a very different country now than it was when the founding fathers drafted the starting legislation, but they never intended it to be a perfect system devoid of improvements.

    • @Pcgamers Rule what sources are you looking for: anecdotes on police brutality against whites (done). 2) The purpose (before and now) of the electoral college … some other bs claim you’ve made about the events surrounding the Taylor case?

    • @Pcgamers Rule careful … you are tending towards the “basket of deplorable” comment that worked out so well for Hill. People in the mid west or the south or any other more rural areas don’t really care what the programmers in silicone valley think of how we should live. If you don’t like the law … vote in something else.

      @Blank No one for the life of most Americans, we cannot understand the thinking process of the left; Security, Safety and Law Enforcement protections are what we need/desire and folks that oppose that are the reason TrueTrump will get re-elected with millions of extra votes; we expect him to have more than 400 electoral votes; so the leftist parts of California, NY etc. can just start their own country with 400 anti-police idiiots.
      -Civil and Social Unrest! only because the radical left wing dem mayors and governors refuse to ask for federal help expeciall under Operation LeGend; anything else smarty pants
      TrueTrump’s authority to invoke the In surrection Act still stands; so he can send Marines to any city at any time to quell the “mostly peaceful” (partial violent?) These mayors must recant their former ways and start protecting their citizens; but it is far too late for any of them to get re-elected and many will soon be facing recalls– November 3 is only 62 days away.

    They were literally being assaulted at 35 secs in, paul didnt call it an angry mob it WAS an angry mob lmao

  5. I like how the news media couldn’t be bothered even captioning the fact that Rand Paul introduced legislation specifically for no knock warrants related to what happened to Breonna Taylor.

    News is criminally negligent.

    • @toomanyaccounts Allegations of her bf being a drug dealer aren’t true. There was no evidence either of them had drugs and in fact when the apartment was searched, no drugs. Her bf thought someone was breaking and entering so he fired a single shot, which happened to hit an officer and they returned fire with 22 shots. Overkill and bad policing

    • toomanyaccounts | August 31, 2020 at 1:15 PM | Reply

      @Pcgamers Rule doesn’t mean that there were not drugs there. surveillance shows drugs being delivered and then taken out. recordings show her boyfriend was involved with those he knew were drug dealers.

      @Cymric Oh, I see, so Rand Paul was supposed to say her name to raise her from the dead?

  7. Say his name, Cannon Hinnant

    • @Marta Chrzanowski My logic is rational, that’s what has you confused. You’re not used to it.
      “so you’re saying innocent people deserve to die? ” – nope. But go ahead, keep trying to twist reality into something it’s not. Reality won’t care.
      “Sleeping with a drug dealer isn’t a crime.” – not necessarily. But sleeping with a violent drug dealer puts you at risk.
      Breonna Taylor took that risk, and the actions of her violent drug dealer cost her her life. Her choice, her consequences.

      “I’ve heard people critical of Chairman Mao and the 80 million people he exterminated. But ya gotta put it in perspective. Mao was working for a Socialist Utopia.
      Ya gotta break a few eggs to make an omelette.”
      – Senator Joe “you ain’t Genocide” Biden

    • @Ken Brun You are scared, you should be. America is changing and it’s not in your favor.

    • @Memento Mori ” Turns out you don’t gotta be a thug. Just gotta be at wrong place at the wrong time.” you’re lying.
      Breonna Taylor wasn’t just “in the wrong place at the wrong time” – like she took a left at the wrong street.
      Breonna Taylor CHOSE to sleep with a violent drug dealer. Her choice, her consequences.
      Her violent drug dealer CHOSE to shoot it out with police. That’s what got her killed.
      Well, that and the fact that she CHOSE to sleep with a violent drug dealer.

      “If drugs weren’t as expensive as they are, George Floyd wouldn’t have had to pass counterfeit currency to support his fentanyl and crystal meth habit.
      He probably wouldn’t have ended up in prison for holding a gun to the belly of a pregnant woman while robbing her house, either.”
      – Senator Joe “you ain’t high” Biden

    • @Memento Mori “You are scared, you should be” – yep, you’re a Lunatic Leftist : “If I say it is, it IS !!!” I remember hearing that in kindergarten, too…
      “America is changing and it’s not in your favor.” – yep, you’re a Lunatic Leftist : Big talk from a small mind. 🤣

      “All the violence in the streets is from White nationalists, extreme right-wingers. Really bad people.
      But I gotta say, at the BLM riots, their black-face makeup is really convincing.”
      – Senator Joe “you ain’t deranged” Biden

    • @Ken Brun Exactly remember that😁

  8. Confronting the guy who wrote the bill to get No-knock warrants outlawed…… shows the ignorance of protesters

  9. What a bunch of lunatics! They are truly an embarrassment.

    “What about Breonna”? Uh Senator Paul signed a bill into law ending no knock warrants. Maybe Breonna shouldn’t have dated a drug dealer. But who needs facts?

  11. I live here and this crap is starting to piss us all off!!!

    • As an American you have the right to defend any peice of land in the country from these domestic terrorist. Get ready take your country back.

    • Melissa Hanselman More white people are killed by cops every year. There’s more white people in the US so more whites killed than blacks. Duh!
      They just don’t get the coverage because the MSM has an agenda along with the dumocraps!

      @D B no. U don’t. That’s Marshall law and that isn’t where we are in the world. You MAGA morons just can’t wait to live in a dictatorship. May be we’ll get really lucky and just become a 3rd world country.

    • The left always accuses you of that which they are guilty, and Melissa’s comment is the best example of it you will ever find. Two statements that consist of absolutely nothing but projection.

  12. They are a mob not protesters, protesters don’t yell kill him get him .

    • Yea that doesn’t sound peaceful at all

    • @D B Who or what has told you that protests are peaceful by their very definition?

      But it’s clear that these folks don’t have an ideological (despite your “far left claims) or political or societal plan. They have no leadership and are disorganized and angry, or they’d recognise the guy they are attacking made the act in honour of the person they are protesting for.

      And this is the real tragedy. Not that it’s violent. But why it was violent. For no reason.

    • @Boris I didn’t say they were peaceful 🤔 but I see many people on Facebook every day who seem to think they are. I don’t have far left ideals because I don’t agree with them and they don’t agree with the way in which I’d like to live my life, I want to keep all my rights (such as free speech) and I’d like to live without this huge divide that this movement is causing.

  13. Wish I can hear them shout Connor…. Dorn…Or Guillen.

  14. Fake news refuses to tell the truth, neighbors recorded the event “I started recording after I was awakened by the police pounding and shouting police search warrant”

  15. “What about Breonna?” they screamed at the man who authored the Justice for Breonna Taylor bill.

  16. Morons could careless that the politician they’re attacking actually sponsored the bill to end “no knock” warrants!

    • @A K Your writing ability is less than that of 2nd grader. That begs the question of your intellect.

    • @A K Fan boi!

    • @A K guarantees are not facts.

    • @Mustang Wolf I don’t play pissing games with idiots. Go play with someone else GOODBYE.

    • Mustang Wolf a lynching is a certain vigilante type of murder, not a crime unto itself. Just like imo terrorism shouldn’t be a crime unto itself, I do think the protesters/rioters are being unfairly targeted with that charge, so there is no bias from me. For example I don’t believe the Boston bombers should be charged with terrorism, simply as many counts of murder and assault as they committed. Every crime should be broken down into its simplest form, there shouldn’t be any “escalator” charges like terror or lynching.

  17. These people are OUT OF THEIR MINDS.

  18. Of course the so called “news” leaves out the fact he penned the breonna Taylor law. Media lies people die

    • All it is is LIP SERVICE!

    • @Deepak Mannooparambil BULL %$#&^ It is just more lip service. Rand Paul could care less, he just wants the votes.

    • whats the lie–protestors surround sen. rand paul after rnc….all I see in this video is a group of people around and yelling at paul….no lies here. its the job of us viewers to find out that rand paul wrote that breonna taylor law. we are americans and wanted be treated like intelligent people than we got do it ourselves. its not like the media is hiding the fact he penned that bill, if I google “rand paul breonna taylor bill,” i see it instantly. so dont give me this “media lies people die bs,” because that is true & happen, but this is not that instance.

    • @jlv3x soo wtf does have to do with his bill?
