‘Fascists not welcome’
September 25, 2018
Senator Ted Cruz and his wife Heidi were literally chased out of a restaurant in DC Monday night by a mob of leftists who were angry at Cruz for, it appears, expressing support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
The mob chanted “we believe survivors,” and at one point blocked Cruz’s wife from exiting, forcing the Texas Senator to step in and demand the unhinged group “let my wife through.”
Cruz’s only other reaction to the mob was to say “God bless you”, as he attempted to leave. Video of the incident was posted by a group calling itself ‘Smash Racism DC’, which described Kavanaugh as a ‘creep’ and a ‘Fascist’.
Further footage shows a woman claiming to be a victim of sexual assault getting in the faces of Cruz and his wife and demanding to talk about Kavanaugh.
“I know that you’re very close friends with Mr. Kavanaugh.” The woman is heard to say, adding “Do you believe survivors sir? We believe survivors. Senator, I have a right to know what your position is on Brett Kavanaugh. I’m a survivor of sexual assault. There are now three people that have come forward and said that Brett Kavanaugh attacked them. Have you talked to him about that?”

Another female agitator was heard telling the Texas senator, “Beto is way hotter than you.” referring to Cruz’s Democratic opponent in the 2018 midterms.
“Activists”? You mean scumbags harassing a U.S. Senator because they oppose his political beliefs? Nothing would upset these “activists” more than if the Cruz camp fundraised off of these idiots. ➡️ https://t.co/TcLLWyBRw0 https://t.co/Zxj2H2MMHu

When some speculated that the mob were paid Democratic agitators, it was denied.
This is part of a growing trend that has seen Republicans and conservatives confronted and hounded at their homes and in private.
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Florida Attorney General Pat Bondi, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and White House advisor Stephen Miller have been previously targeted by such angry mobs.
