Rand Paul calls out Democrats’ hypocrisy on impeachment: ‘It’s just not fair’

If Democrats applied their own standards on impeachment to members of their own party, there would be quite a few more removal proceedings going on in Washington right now.

At least, that’s the position of Sen. Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican who flipped the impeachment script on Democrats on Sunday when he said that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Reps. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) have all said things that would be considered incitement if they faced the same scrutiny being applied to former President Donald Trump.

Trump was impeached by the House last month over allegations that he incited what Democrats have dubbed an “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol, and his trial in the Senate is set to begin this week, reports note.

“You won’t know what hit you”

Sen. Paul, for his part, said Sunday that while he didn’t agree with his colleagues who opted to vote against the certification of the Electoral College vote on Jan. 6 — the same day a group of then-President Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol, prompting Dems’ impeachment push — he continues to support their right to express their beliefs without fear of retribution by the opposite party. Sadly, Democrats don’t seem to be on the same page.

“I opposed the notion of — which I think was a misguided notion — of voting to overturn the election either with Congress or with the vice president,” Paul said on the latest episode of Fox News Sunday, according to Breitbart.

“But I think if we are going to criminalize speech and somehow impeach everybody who says, oh, go fight to hear your voices heard, really we ought to impeach Chuck Schumer then,” he added. “He went to the Supreme Court, stood in front of the Supreme Court, and said specifically, hey [Justice Neil] Gorsuch, hey [Brett] Kavanaugh, you’ve unleashed a whirlwind, and you’re going to pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you continue with these awful decisions.”

“It’s just partisan politics”

Paul went on to point out that Chief Justice John Roberts even rebuked Schumer for his “inflammatory” comments and likened them to an invading “mob.”

“So if people want to hold President Trump accountable for language, there has to be a consistent standard, and to my mind, it’s a partisan farce because they’re not doing anything to Chuck Schumer, not doing anything to Representative Omar, not doing anything to Maxine Waters. It’s just not fair,” Paul insisted, according to Breitbart. “It’s just partisan politics under a different name.”

Waters admitted in September 2018 that she threatens Trump supporters “all the time,” as The Hill reported, but she never faced any consequences for it. Omar, meanwhile, has repeatedly been accused of making anti-Semitic remarks, and some Republicans recently tried to get her removed from her committee assignments after Democrats did the same to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) for comments she made that they said were hateful and dangerous, according to USA Today.

The courage to speak

Paul’s comments serve two useful purposes in the current political climate: First, they point out the inconsistency, unfairness, and hypocrisy of Democrats as they go after their political opponents and try to demonize and destroy them.

Second, they show that Republicans have the backbone to stand up for themselves and not let Democrats get away with their attempts to destroy Republicans unfairly.

Both are important and much-needed right now. Keep talking, Rand Paul.

  1. Well, the saying goes like this, “what’s good for the goose is good for the gander”. If this were to be applied to our country’s current political state ( and it should), then let’s put Schumer, Waters, and Omar on trail as well. Our country will be better served if these standards were applied across the board. Please keep in mind that this is tax payers money being spent.

      1. Pelosi should be brought up on destroying President Trump’s speech behind his back and disrespecting the office of the Speaker!

    1. I wish they would. I’m tired of the Democrats think they above the law .They have 80 million people don’t like them.But hang in there we are not done with them yet .WE THE PEOPLE will take them down.

  3. Senater Paul, You are doing a great job . I am glad that someone has the balls to stand up to these disgusting Dem’s Keep up the good fight!!!! Will I be impeached for that ?

  4. The time is LONG overdue to for this country to ADMIT that there were MOUNTAINS of “proof”, numerous VIDEOS , Countless affidavits that were totally IGNORED by frightened, BRIBED or “threatened” “judges”, investigators” and CROOKED “representatives” of the RAMPANT voter fraud that occurred to “install” two crooked communist chinese “puppets” into OUR White House and allow the take over of or Constitutional republic by the COMMUNIST “party”.
    Open your eyes America, our country has been infiltrated by communist forces without a shot being fired, just like Khrushchev “predicted” back in 1959.
    This is the “platform” of the democommunist “party”

  5. Some repulicans or RINOS will never stand up as they are on board with the DS communists.Thank you Paul Rand for standing up for free speach and the constutition .And pointing out these criminal acts by the Democrats to lie and cheat in congress.

  6. As in 1776 living conditions are becoming intolerable for the average, peaceful American citizen. History will repeat itself when a “militia” will formed again & what happened to the British will happen to our current administration with, hopefully, deadly! physical force.

  7. Besides Mr. Paul, someone/anyone, PLEASE riddle me this: “WHERE ARE THE REST OF THE GOP WITH SOME BACKBONE”?????? SMDH!!!!!

  8. DID RAND PAUL GET MY E-MAIL SUGGESTION FROM HIS LAST E-MAIL TO ME. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT HE SAW IT. IF HE REPLIES TO ME WITH A BETTER ADDRESS I WILL RESEND MY SUGGESTION. I BELIEVE IT IS POSSIBLE TO EFFECT.

    DOLORES DUDA

  9. I would like to know why every lawyer in this country with half a brain, haven’t joined together to file, on behalf of “the people”, a law suit against the Communities Democratics in the Whitehouse and Congress for violating The Constitution. Commie Biden and Congress are not defending or protecting the American citizens or our country; and Congress does NOT have the authority to impeach a private citizen.
    The corrupt Communist Democrats from the very top on down are all bloody idiots who think they are some kind of little gods and acting more and more like little Hitlers every day – they do not belong in office.

  10. Ron Paul you are the only one that has the nerve to stand up to the Dem.
    I wish I could be there. To help you out If all of the other Republicans had
    what you have may by we would not have lost the election. I think all of
    the Dem. in the senate and congress should be fired. There should be a
    law that should be in the constitution that says that That way if they fall
    of track then we the people should be able to get them out.

  11. Linda
    It has become fact that George Soros and his many organizations have bought Judges, Prosecutors, lawyers, and anyone willing to sell their soul to support his Communist World order. Destroying our Constitution, way of life and forcing Government control of our lives. This includes Schumer, Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, Wray, Barr, Clinton’s, Obama, Harris, The Biden’s and all those in the current and Obama’s administration.
    American Citizens deserve better but we have to fight for our freedom before it’s gone.

  12. Dems and Republicans all were the swamp Trump wanted to drain. All of them are rich on our money and they supposedly work for us. Bums all of them.

  13. Chuck Schumer should be IMPEACHED right away soon after Trump’s impeachment , for his UNCIVILIZED attack on the Supreme Court ! Why should Schumer getaway with hs UNCIVILIZED attack on the Supreme Court !

  14. Good always triumphs over evil. Keep the faith. It’ll all work out. BTW, his name isn’t Paul Rand, or Ron Paul. It’s Rand Paul. TRUMP 2024!!!!!!!!!!!!
