‘You Are Not Safe’: Antifa Group Threatens Ted Cruz After Disrupting Dinner With His Wife

Ted Cruz Antifa threatens wifeThe Washington, D.C., chapter of Antifa sent a message to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, early Tuesday morning after chasing him out of a restaurant, telling him that he is “not safe.”

Cruz was dining Monday night with his wife, Heidi, when a large crowd of protesters flooded the restaurant, shouting, “We believe survivors.” They were referring to allegations of sexual misconduct against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court nominee, who Cruz supports. Cruz and his wife promptly left.

A recording of the incident soon was tweeted by Smash Racism DC, a branch of Antifa based in Washington, with the hashtag “#CancelKavanugh.” Hours later, Smash Racism DC doubled down on its harassment of the senator.

“No—you can’t eat in peace—your politics are an attack on all of us. You’re [sic] votes are a death wish. Your votes are hate crimes,” Smash Racism DC wrote.

“Tonight Senator Ted Cruz arrived at Fiola, an upscale restaurant mere steps from the White House, to enjoy a hearty Italian dinner,” the group wrote. “He could have dined on a lavish four course meal for only $145 while millions of Americans struggle to buy groceries. He might have sampled from the top shelf wine list as migrant children languish in cages.”

The comment was seemingly about President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy that separated juveniles from their parents after they illegally crossed into the United States. However, Cruz proposed legislation to keep illegal immigrant families together.

The Antifa group wrote of Cruz:

He’d have laughed with his wife while women and members of the LGBTQ community collectively gasp in horror as Senator Cruz pushes forward on Bret [sic] Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination. At least he could have had activists not interrupted his evening just as he was being seated. Instead, activists from 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 interrupted Ted Cruz’s peaceful meal.

Smash Racism DC defended the disturbance, writing that it “does not compare in scale to the interruptions his actions as a Senator have had on millions of American lives.”

The group then sent a threat directly to Cruz, Kavanaugh, and Trump:

“This is a message to Ted Cruz, Bret [sic] Kavanaugh, Donald Trump and the rest of the racist, sexist, transphobic, and homophobic right-wing scum: You are not safe. We will find you. We will expose you. We will take from you the peace you have taken from so many others.”

The series of tweets was signed “Sincerely, Some Anti Fascist Hooligans.”

This blatant intimidation, harassment, and threat of physical assault SHOULD NOT BE TOLERATED! If a “regular” customer were approached in this manner, I would hope that the manager or someone would call 911 immediately.
There’s video of this event, and Antifa members should be identified and hauled into court. After all, they were the ones who said Sen. Cruz and his wife were “not safe”. How much longer will we have to put up with this nonsense?

They don’t have a real argument so they make things up and call people names. For being so educated they sure don’t know much!

It is time to remove the antifa scum who are just Hitler in different cloths and are an embarrassment to the country, especially the Pearl Harbor generation. They fought for our country, not against it. These protesticles are stupid and the women are really ugly.

Leave it to Antifa to turn Ted Cruz into a sympathetic person.
