As we told you Monday, totally anti-violence lib singer Richard Marx made a comment about the serious injuries Sen. Rand Paul got after being attacked by his neighbor a couple of years ago:
Iâ€™ll say it again: If I ever meet Rand Paulâ€™s neighbor Iâ€™m going to hug him and buy him as many drinks as he can consume.

Considering Sen. Paul and his wife were attacked walking back to their hotel after President Trumpâ€™s acceptance speech following the 2020 GOP convention and the fact that the FBI is now investigating an envelope containing white powder that was mailed to Paulâ€™s Kentucky home, the congressman isnâ€™t liking Twitterâ€™s tolerance for comments like those from Marx:
I take these threats immensely seriously. As a repeated target of violence, it is reprehensible that Twitter allows C-list celebrities to encourage violence against me and my family. https://t.co/e1rQ6uwPdf

I have been targeted multiple times now, it is reprehensible that Twitter allows C-list celebrities to advocate for violence against me and my family! https://t.co/WhTtswUI91

Weâ€™ll see what happens, if anything (donâ€™t hold your breath). If the tweet like the one from Marx had been directed at a Democrat who had been subjected to threats and violence is there any doubt Twitter would have taken action by now?
Will @TwitterSupport take action against people like @richardmarx who glorify violence against @RandPaul and his family or do the rules only work one way @Jack? Now Rand is the target of violence AGAIN right after a tweet glorifying violence against him went viral https://t.co/3Ltxc0qvjQ
