‘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.”

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.

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?

It is so sad to see what many left wing radicals are doing. I believe that if those of us who are against this type of treatment of ANY individuals whether they are Trump supporters or not do not begin to use the legal justice system to make these bad actors regret their actions we will be condoning this activity. We should call the police ourselves versus waiting for the restaurant to call and we should video their vitriolic words and actions and make it go viral. We have everything at our fingertips and we should use it to stop this activity.

I agree, Bonnie. They should have been arrested–and tried. It’s time that “our side” started orchestrating the protests to make law enforcement do what they’re paid to do!

It seems that a lot of business owners in the D.C. area are of the view that they will allow this sort of mob mentality against their customers out of fear that if they call the police or try to intervene themselves to eject these demonstrators, that their businesses will quickly find themselves out of business. Even going back to the early ’90’s when I traveled there on business on a pretty regular basis, it was pretty plain that D.C. was a Democrat run town. I would expect that if a Democrat couple had been harrassed in this manner, the response would have been completely different.

If you watched the video of this incident, you’ll notice that not one other patron of this business did one thing to aid Cruz or his wife. No one called the police. No one demanded the management of the business intervene. No one said one thing to this crowd of thugs on Cruz’s behalf. In short, either the other patrons were in agreement with the mob or more likely they were sheep trying to avoid any appearanace of standing up to the mob. Even by doing something as simple as dialing 9-1-1. This so reminds me of the Brown Shirts of Germany in the mid 1930’s. The average man and woman just standing by as the incidents of harrasment grew ever bolder and more blantant. The general population slowly being kowed into submission out of fear that if they stood up, that they too would become the focal point of the mob. So the insane mob only grows more in size as no one stands up to stop them, until the mob’s leader runs the country. I’ll leave it at that.

Disgusting, isn’t it? And there’s no guarantee that the police would show up if they had known it was Sen. Cruz! I hope that’s just me being cynical.
