‘Mayhem And Lawlessness’: Rand Paul Compares Protesters Tearing Down Statues To The Taliban
Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul joined the Daily Caller’s Stephanie Hamill for a wide-ranging interview on police reform, the Black Lives Matter protests happening across the country, and the latest COVID-19 travel restrictions in New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey.
In this interview, Paul weighs in on the efforts to tear down American statues and he compares those involved in this effort to the Taliban.
“If we’re going to pull down all statues, it seems more like the Taliban,” said Paul. “I’m not Buddhist, Muslim or any of those religions but it was sad to see those huge, giant Buddhist statues being blown up by the Taliban.”
According to reports, the president is readying an executive order that would criminalize the destruction of monuments on federal property.
