A crazed mob of #MeToo protesters swarmed Senator Ted Cruz and his wife, Heidi, at a restaurant in Washington, D.C., last night.
The ranting totalitarians, who posted their antics at a Twitter feed called “Smash Racism,” verged on physically threatening the couple, shouting “we believe survivors” until they gave up having a meal in peace and left.
Such was the insanity that even Cruz’s Democratic opponent denounced it.
Fascists Not Welcome
The video of the verbal assault posted to Smash Racism’s Twitter feed is nothing if not an ugly reminder of this movement’s totalitarian aims. Disagree with us, and you won’t even be able to eat in peace.
A unhinged woman confronted Cruz with a nutty demand to which she already knew the answer: How would the senator vote on Brett Kavanaugh?
“Hi, I’d love to talk to you about Brett Kavanaugh tonight,” the woman said. “I’m a constituent, love to know what your vote is going to be tonight. I know that you’re very close friends with Mr. Kavanaugh.”
“Senator, I have a right to know what your position is on Brett Kavanaugh.”
Replied Cruz, “God bless you, ma'am.”
“Bless you as well, I really appreciate you,” the woman continued. “I’m a survivor of sexual assault. I believe all survivors. There are now three people who have come forward and who have said that Brett Kavanaugh has attacked them. I know that you’re close friends with him. Could you talk to him about that? Could you talk to him about his position?”
Showing middle fingers, the crowd began a mindless, Maoist chant, “we believe survivors,” and drove the Cruzes out the door.
Unsurprisingly, the restaurant employees did nothing.
That said, the Smash Racism tweet boasted of the verbal terrorism:
BREAKING. Activists just chased @TedCruz out of a fancy Washington DC restaurant, chanting “We Believe Survivors!”
Cruz has been friends with creep Kavanaugh for 20 years. Now Cruz is on judiciary committee hearing his testimony.
Fascists not welcome!
Who the “fascists” were is unexplained, but Smash Racism itself advocates racism. The group’s Twitter feed published the phone number of a relatively prominent contrarian commentator with the following message: “tell him you love white genocide.”
O’Rourke Defends Cruz
Cruz’s opponent, leftist Representative Beto O’Rourke, who represents the 16th district of Texas in Congress, denounced the mob.
“Not right that Senator Cruz and his wife Heidi were surrounded and forced to leave a restaurant last night because of protesters,” he tweeted. “The Cruz family should be treated with respect.”
But not everyone agrees. Some of O’Rourke’s followers demonstrate just how unhinged “progressives” have become. Some commenters believe the mob that terrorized the Cruzes were a spontaneous gathering of “the people,” who were merely reacting to Cruz’s alleged perfidies.
“Mob violence? lmao maybe if ted cruz wasnt trying to constantly strip the people of their healthcare and not continually taking blood money from the nra this wouldnt happen to him,” tweeted a young man whose photo features him staring into the cyberabyss of his smartphone.
“Ted Cruz does not treat the truth or the American people with respect,” another wrote. “People expressed themselves about that, as is their right, just like taking a knee. It was not courteous but these are very challenging times, and needs must.”
A Black Lives Matter sympathizer thinks Cruz “has helped destroy the health and well-being of individuals far and wide for too long,” while another crackpot claimed that “Resistance fighters don't have to follow decorum” because “the GOP has basically staged a ‘bloodless’ coup.”
Maxine Waters Helped
The anti-Cruz mob followed the advice of Representative Maxine Waters of California. As The New American has reported on multiple occasions, Waters has egged on leftist agitators, telling them to harass officials of the Trump aministration and even his supporters.
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” Waters said. “And if you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. You push back on them. Tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!”
Speaking to a homosexual gathering Los Angeles about two weeks ago, Waters reiterated her call to mob action.
