VIDEO: Ted Cruz Flees Restaurant After Harassment by Anti-Kavanaugh Thugs

When Maxine Waters went on a stage several months ago and began caterwauling at the top of her lungs about bothering politicians that the average person did not agree with, many knew that it was going to open up a can of worms that was going to be very hard to contain.

The mere idea that liberals would go for the shock and awe tactics of the public harassment of people that they did not agree with shouldn’t sit well with anyone, even the people that might be on the fence and leaning towards agreeing with them politically.

Not to put on my Andy Rooney hat for the moment, but what the heck ever happened to jut leaving people alone? You see this kind of thing happen with athletes and all kind of entertainers where it’s one thing entirely to ask them for a picture when they are walking through an airport or happen to be getting coffee.

However, I have been in airports where I have seen famous people get bothered for pictures while they were checking into their flights or at dinner with their families and people get hot when they tell them that this isn’t a good time to do the taking of pictures and signing of things.

In the case of conservative politicans and commentators there are a lot of people that unfortunately are getting to the point where they are going to have to dine in and even order that under an assumed name for fear of someone either attacking them at dinner or doing something to their food.

Videos shared to Twitter Monday evening show Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his wife Heidi fleeing D.C.-area restaurant Fiola after being harassed by protesters over their support for Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

In the pair of videos tweeted by “Smash Racism DC,” protesters are seen chanting, “We believe survivors” in support of Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, who have brought decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

In one of the videos, a protester claiming to be a constituent of Cruz asks the Texas lawmaker if he will vote for Kavanaugh to be confirmed. “I would love to know what your vote is going to be tonight,” the protester asks the Texas senator. “I know that you’re very close friends with Mr. Kavanaugh. Do you believe survivors, sir?”

“God bless you, ma’am,” Cruz replies as he is seated at his table. Seconds later, Cruz and wife decide to exit the eatery as protesters still chanting “we believe survivors” show no signs of leaving them alone. “Let’s go ahead and go,” Cruz is said telling his wife.

In the second video, Cruz is seen making his way past protesters, one of which appears to get in Cruz’s way, prompting the lawmaker to signal him to get out of his way. “Excuse me, sir,” Cruz tells the male protester.

The couple’s exit from the restaurant is met with cheers from the protesters.

“Cancel Kavanaugh, for women’s rights! For every marginalized community!” one female protester is heard shouting at the end of the video.

The incident comes after Cruz faced off against Democrat challenger Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) Friday in what was the first of three debates for the Texas Senate race.
