Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) doubled down on his warning against Former Attorney General Eric Holder’s and other Democrats rhetorics directed to bash Republicans.

During his speech campaigning for Democrats, Holder said he thinks former first lady Michelle Obama’s line,”When they go low, we go high,” is not enough and that there is a “new Democratic party.”

“No. When they go low, we kick them,” Holder responded to Obama’s famous line, giving his own thoughts.

Watch the video below:

“That’s what this new Democratic Party is about. We’re proud as hell to be Democrats,” Holder said. “We’re going to fight for the ideals of the Democratic Party. We’re proud of our history. We’re proud of our present. And we’re proud of the future we can create for this country.”

Paul spoke out after Holder’s statement, urging for caution on both sides of politics.

The senator doubled down on the left and the Democratic party for their potentially violent rhetoric that could lead to someone getting killed.

Paul explained on Fox News the scene of the GOP congressional baseball practice in 2017 where a gunman fired shots at the Republican congressional team — leaving U.S. Representative Steve Scalise critically wounded and four others wounded.

“I was there at the ball field when Steven Scalise almost died from a very, very angry violent man who was incited really by rhetoric on the left.”

The man was yelling, “This is for healthcare,” Paul said, adding that the man had a list in his pocket of conservative legislatures as his targets.

“So what happens is that when Democrats say ‘get up in their face,’ they need to realize that there are a lot of unstable people out there,” Paul said. “There are people with anger issues, there are people who are prone to violence.”

Watch the video below:

“What we shouldn’t do is incite people to violence,” Paul said.

He added that the Democrats need to ratchet the rhetoric down.

“There is going to be an assassination if this doesn’t ratchet down.”

Paul expressed his concern over the rhetoric again on Fox News, saying, “They have to realize that when they tell people to get up in your face, that there are some crazy unstable people out there.”

He added a solution, saying that instead of the rhetoric that puts people right into each other’s faces, there needs to be constructive dialogue and present each side’s position in a verbal way.

Watch the video below:

While Holder may not have not meant his statement literally, another Democrat, Hillary Clinton, recently made a statement that sparked talk when she said, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.”

  1. Rand Paul is so irrelevant. He calls himself a libertarian, but he is just a flunky who votes as a Trumplican anyway.

    This is just his lazy way of staying in the headlines. Boring.

  2. I think Paul is right – there are too many crazy people out there who do not know when to stop and if politicians keep advocating things like get n their face, kick them, etc. , crazy people will do that and take it a step further. Politicians need to work together and stop the angry comments.

  3. No one and I mean no one, should bully or try to hurt another person because they view things in life differently than themselves. What are these so called adults teaching our young children? If someone doesn’t see things your way, be mean to them, bully them or hurt them. No wonder our schools have shootings and have behavioral issues…Look at our so called leaders in government, talking like spoiled brats…They should all be ashamed of their actions and need to apologize to the our nations children. Yes, Maxine Waters, Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton just to name a few who need to go back to kindergarten and learn how to treat other human beings…
