Bette Midler advocates violence against Rand Paul over spending bill vote

As the Internet knows by now, the federal government technically shut down for a brief time Friday morning after Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., refused to support a 600-page government funding bill.  Naturally, this triggered Bette Midler, who decided to advocate violence against the Kentucky Republican.

“Where’s Rand Paul’s neighbor when we need him?” she tweeted.

Paul, for those who may not remember, was viciously attacked by his neighbor, 58-year-old Rene A. Boucher, who admitted to attacking the Senator in his yard. The attack left him with broken ribs, bruises and he later contracted pneumonia as a result.

Midler was criticized heavily on Twitter:

Silly Twitter user — Don’t you know that rule only applies to those whose political views fall to the right of Josef Stalin?

Midler is a Hollywood leftist, so….

Curious, isn’t it — The most intolerant people on earth are those on the left who claim to be “tolerant.”

The fact is, as I first pointed out way back in February 2011, liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of insane, bloodthirsty rage and hate.  Liberals like Midler, sadly prove that assertion correct on just about any given day.
