Alert: Ted Cruz, Wife Attacked -- Escape After Staff Struggle With Door


In an act of “protest” that appeared to verge on a violent attack, a group of liberals drove Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife out of a Washington, D.C., restaurant Monday, the New York Post reports.

The protest was ostensibly about federal Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, and most of the verbal attacks seemed to be directed toward that. Footage of the attack, posted by a group calling itself Smash Racism DC, shows the protesters chanting “We believe survivors” as they chased Cruz and his wife Heidi from the unidentified eatery.

“I know that you’re very close friends with Mr. Kavanaugh,” one of the activists says to Cruz.

“But do you believe survivors, sir? We believe survivors!”

One protester, describing herself as a constituent and “survivor of sexual assault” followed the Cruzes throughout the restaurant and said, “Senator, I have a right to know what your position is on Brett Kavanaugh.”

“God bless you, ma’am,” Cruz replied.

“Vote no on Kavanaugh!” another protester screamed. “Cancel Kavanaugh for women’s rights.”

However, not all of the protesters were exactly concerned about how the Kavanaugh nomination might affect American women: “Beto is hotter than you, dude,” one protester can be heard to say, referring to Cruz’s Democrat challenger U.S. Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke.

Eventually, after having his table surrounded, Cruz decided it was time to leave.

“Let’s go ahead and go,” Cruz said.

They finally managed to get out after a restaurant employee struggled to get the door open, though it wasn’t clear what the problem was.

The group bragged about its thuggishness on Twitter.

“Activists just chased @TedCruz out of a fancy Washington DC restaurant, chanting ‘We Believe Survivors!’” the group’s post read.

“Cruz has been friends with creep Kavanaugh for 20 years. Now Cruz is on judiciary committee hearing his testimony.

Do you think this is a sign of how desperate the left is?
“Fascists not welcome! #CancelKavanugh,” the post concluded.

Just a note, this hasn’t been taken off Twitter or caused any banning, but James Woods remains locked out of the platform as of Tuesday morning for tweeting a joke meme (nothing has been posted to his normally active account since Thursday). Just throwing that out there.

I’m also forced to note not infrequently that this is apparently where we are in 2018 — harassment and confrontation has replaced civilized discourse, and anyone who’s conservative is considered fair game for public intimidation.

This group shouted at Cruz, they blocked his wife, and all over the fact that he’s friends with Kavanaugh. (He’s also said that the judge needs to give a public explanation about the charges leveled against him, but apparently that doesn’t matter.)

In short, Cruz said “God bless you.” In return, they chased him and his wife out of a restaurant. If that doesn’t say everything about the left and how they’re approaching Brett Kavanaugh and everything involved with the GOP, I don’t know what will.
