Rodney Robinson, 2019 National Teacher of the Year, posted a call to Twitter on Wednesday for someone to beat up Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) like was done to his fellow Kentuckian Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY). Paul had to have surgery to remove part of a lung that was damaged as a result of being attacked and beaten by a neighbor in 2017. (Update at end. Robinson now says he was joking.)

“Who are Mitch McConnell’s neighbors? I’m just saying Rand Paul’s neighbor did what a true Kentucky hero should do. It’s your turn to step up.”
Robinson deleted the tweet sometime after 7 p.m. after posting it at 1:02 p.m. EST, December 30, 2020. Photo of tweet below.
Robinson has racial issues against “old white men” like the 78-year-old McConnell, as seen by this tweet from Tuesday, “I would say the government is broken but it’s doing exactly what it was designed to do which is maintain power and privilege for old white men.”
