USA: Senator Ted Cruz, A Republican Of Texas, Was Chased Out Of A Restaurant In Washington DC, After Marxist Mob Verbally Attacked Him Over His Support Of Supreme Court Nominee Kavanaugh

This is not "activism" per say that we were taught in civics class in the United States to participate in. Nope. These people hate America and the values that have made America great. The very reason people from ALL OVER THE WORLD risk their lives to cross over our borders with hopes of living the American dream. These people are Marxists wanting to turn our country into a third world nation where intimidating mob violence and paramilitary rules the streets for the preferred political party. Crazy, I know. People ESCAPE nations ruled in this wicked disgusting manner to come here to find people here wanting to turn our great nation into a cesspool they escaped from. (emphasis mine)

On Monday evening Senator Ted Cruz, a Republican of Texas, was chased out of a restaurant in Washington DC, after activists heckled him over his support of supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

“We believe survivors!” the group chanted, swarming Cruz and his wife, Heidi, at the Italian restaurant Fiola, not far from the White House. The protest was captured on a video posted to the Smash Racism DC Twitter account, which took credit for the action, and identified themselves as a coalition comprising “Smash Racism DC, Resist This, DC IWW, members of DC Democratic Socialists of America, Anarchists, women, sexual assault survivors, and members of the LGBTQ community”.
In a second video posted by the group, a woman who identifies herself to Cruz as a sexual assault survivor and a constituent of his asks him how he plans to vote on Kavanaugh. The embattled supreme court nominee is facing multiple accusations of sexual impropriety during his youth, and a third woman is expected to make an allegation against him this week, her attorney Michael Avenatti told the Guardian.

“I know that you’re very close friends with Mr Kavanaugh,” the woman in the video says. “But do you believe survivors?”

“God bless you,” Cruz replies.
“Your politics are an attack on all of us. You’re [sic] votes are a death wish. Your votes are hate crimes,” the protesters explained on Twitter soon after.

“While our interruption does not compare in scale to the interruptions his actions as a Senator have had on millions of American lives, we hope that it reminds Cruz and others like him that they are not safe from the people they have hurt,” they continued, in a series of tweets.

The protest follows similar actions carried out against the Trump administration, as when homeland security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was forced out of a restaurant in Washington for her role in the separation of migrant children from their parents back in June. A few weeks later, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant in Virginia after the staff explained that they were uncomfortable serving her.

Earlier this summer, Cruz expressed his enthusiasm for Kavanaugh as a nominee.

“He has a strong record working to reign in the excesses of federal agencies and excess authority for federal agencies to disregard statutes passed by Congress. He has a good record on the second amendment and on religious liberty, so there’s much to like in Judge Kavanaugh’s record. And by any measure, he is one of the most distinguished and respected judges in the country.”

On Friday, during a debate with his insurgent opponent, Representative Beto O’Rourke, Cruz was also pressed on his support of Kavanaugh in light of accusations from Christine Blasey Ford, who has said he sexually assaulted her in high school.

“The allegations she’s raised are serious, and they deserve to be treated with respect,” Cruz said.

In the Washington restaurant Monday night, amid the cries of “We believe survivors!” one protester can be heard above the fray.

“Beto is way hotter than you, dude,” he says.

Earlier that morning, Cruz had been photographed on his way from Texas to Washington. He was staring at a picture of O’Rouke on his phone.
Let’s Make Fun Of The DC Anti-Fascists Some More

Ed wrote earlier about Antifa’s best and brightest who invaded a DC restaurant last night to harass Senator Ted Cruz and his wife. About an hour after posting their video, the group put up a thread on Twitter expressing their vision of a better world, a world without borders, capitalism, and fine dining:
“Your votes are hate crimes,” made me wonder if this was satire by some more clever group. But no, they appear to be serious.

Immediately, they attack the price of the menu (which sounds delicious) and contrast that with Americans struggling to buy groceries. I guess that means that in the world envisioned by Smash Racism DC fine dining is out since someone, somewhere will always be struggling.
Maybe the women gasping in horror should acknowledge there is more to life than politics. Maybe they could go to a movie or out for a nice meal with their significant other… Oh, wait. I guess that’s not allowed.
I could have sworn there were less than a dozen protesters shouting in that restaurant. Apparently, that was the combined force of at least four different DC anarchist groups. That’s a little sad. I wonder if some of them got the text about an emergency protest of Ted Cruz and were like ‘Let’s go smash the fash, comrades!’ And then about half of them didn’t show up because, really, who wants to spend their evening being an a-hole to a bunch of strangers?
That last tweet is definitely my favorite. A world without capitalism? Did they shoot this video on a super 8 camera they cobbled together in the garage? If you watch closely, you can see at that half the members of this group are filming with their phones/cameras. There’s nothing quite as clueless as a group of anarchist using $500 smartphones (made in China at prevailing wages) to coordinate and film their protest and then posting everything on Twitter as they take an uber home. What part of this sideshow would have been possible without capitalism, exactly?

As for eliminating prisons, even members of this group aren’t dumb enough to attack a Senator in front of witnesses. Don’t get me wrong, they’re clearly very dumb but getting physical with Cruz in public would mean jail time and they know that. I don’t think their commitment to anti-fascism goes much beyond breaking dinner reservations.

“You should be embarrassed for existing,” is a perfect way to sum up this group.

Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife Heidi returned to the restaurant where protesters assailed them earlier this week to finish their “exceptional meal," according to the owner.

Fiola, the restaurant where protesters confronted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife while they were dining Monday evening, said it “welcomes all patrons." The owner said Wednesday that the situation was resolved and Cruz and his wife came back to the restaurant after “a few minutes."
"Per our policy for events of this nature, police were called and the guest escorted to privacy," chef and owner Fabio Trabocchi said. "When the situation resolved a few minutes later, our guests returned to thank the staff for their support and to finish their exceptional meal.”

The demonstrators were protesting Cruz's support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. While protesters yelled, “Vote no on Kavanaugh” and “Cancel Kavanaugh for women’s rights,” Cruz could be heard saying, “God bless you,” and asked for the crowd to let his wife through as they vacated the D.C. restaurant.

Once Cruz and his wife had exited, the protesters were told to leave by a restaurant employee.

Protests and rallies have emerged around the country’s capital city and in other areas around the country as multiple women have gone public with sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh denies the allegations, and will appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday to testify regarding the accusations by Christine Blasey Ford stemming back 36 years.
