It was way back in February of last year when Bette Midler gave a shout out to Sen. Rand Paul’s neighbor, who suffered a “minor injury” that turned out to be five broken ribs, three of them displaced fractures. Paul was assaulted in November of 2017, but he was still on Bette Midler’s mind months later:
Where’s Rand Paul’s neighbor when we need him?

Midler doubled-down on that tweet, and now — in October 2019 — she’s still singing the praises of Paul’s neighbor. Note though, that she does not promote violence.
I DO NOT promote violence but… Rand Paul says the Kurds are being “ingrates” for taking their frustrations out on US troops. Which is a good reminder for us all to be more grateful for the neighbor who beat the shit out of Rand Paul.

Ok, but you do promote violence. https://t.co/F3wuwI88Sp

She is promoting violence in the very tweet that says I don’t promote violence.

She convicts herself with her own statement.

She’s a sick person

She attracts a vile crowd, by the replies to her.

The modern left: I don't promote violence but fuck you to death

You're a bad person.

The replies in this are gross. You're ok with violence against a sitting senator? You'd be screaming if this happened to Feinstein, Harris, Blumenthal, etc and rightfully so. But it's Rand Paul so it's ok. You all make me sick.

We’ll ask again: Why is that liberals are the ones always entertaining the violent fantasies? Hey, where’s that guy who shot up the ball field?
The tolerant Left: Bette Midler wonders where Rand Paul's neighbor is when you need him https://t.co/r5ZqxSmI56
