If Nancy Pelosi had been attacked in her yard buy a huge Republican Trump supporter and had her legs broken, the media be exploding with headlines and demand heads? Why the crickets from them when Rand Paul had 6 ribs broken and a damaged lung?

Who cares? News not talking about bc Rand isn't talking about. Rand isn't talking about bc he wants a phat personal injury lawsuit instead.

A crazy guy who happens to be a Democrat does not mean it’s a democratic attack.

No it doesn't. We all thought it was about lawn clippings, but now we find out that NBC lied about it. So what's his motivation? He obviously has more issues than that. And now he says he's not guilty, as if someone else attacked Dr. Paul. He would go to jail if he wasn't a rich democrat Doctor. I'm sure his expensive lawyer will get him off.

Both. But to be fair, conservative media would have done the same thing if a Democrat was the victim.

No they wouldn't. Rachel Madow would have talked endlessly about how hateful conservatives are.

There are no crickets. Plenty of airspace is given to incident.

So both answers are false.

On what channel? And where is the outrage? None from the left accusing the liberal of a hate crime.

That is because it was a personal attack in Rand Paul. Animosity towards an individual of his stature is rarely characterized as a “hate crime”.

No one - that I am aware of - is giving the guy a pass. He is clearly off his nut and deserves whatever he gets. He needs anger management at the very least. Think they offer that in jail?

They have proven that NBC lied about it being a neighborly dispute about lawn clippings. So now it looks like it will be treated as a politically motivated attack on a congressman, which is a federal crime. And now that he's made a not guilty statement, he's going to face jail time.

Paul posted on Twitter on Wednesday linking to reports in the Washington Examiner and on Breitbart that included comments from his Bowling Green neighbors dismissing accounts that the assault was prompted by grass clippings and branches.

The two media outlets said his neighbors blasted the “landscaping dispute” and considered it “fake news.”

The Washington Examiner reported that seven neighbors called the attack “scary” but rejected claims that it was prompted by poor landscaping. They told the newspaper they’re still puzzled about what happened.

Residents of Paul’s gated community told Breitbart the landscaping claims were “erroneous and unfounded.”

That is what is being reported in other news outlets as well.

The “grass clippings” story did not last long to begin with, why are you so wound up about it? Chill.

Incidents involving high profile targets are rarely complete and accurate the first go-round.

It's just that he offered no explanation to the police or Rand Paul. Something set him off and I'll bet you that it's more than mowing his lawn. It's probably pent up political anger. His Facebook basically proves how angry he was at the right.

It is possible. My guess is that there are a couple factors involved.

They only do that if it doesn't fit their narrative.

I didn’t hear any crickets, was covered quite a bit, on all news I watched.

Where's the outrage from the big heads in the liberal opinion shows wanting a stiffer penalty for a political hit? If the guy had an AR15 would he have been another congressional baseball game killer?

There was outrage! I don’t know what you are talking about? I haven’t heard anyone defend the nut who did it.

I haven't heard anyone defending him either. But I also haven't seen much else.
