Last night, Senator Ted Cruz and his wife, Heidi, were at dinner at a restaurant in DC and they were beset by a mob of typical lefties.

This is how Fox reports it:
In the first video clip, a group of protesters approach Cruz and his wife at a restaurant table, repeatedly shouting, “We believe survivors!”
“Hi, I’d love to talk to you about Brett Kavanaugh tonight. I’m a constituent, love to know what your vote is gonna be tonight. I know that you’re very close friends with Mr. Kavanaugh,” says a woman off camera. “Do you believe survivors?”
“Senator, I have a right to know what your position is on Brett Kavanaugh,” she continues.
“God bless you, ma’am,” Cruz says amid the shouts.
“Bless you as well, I really appreciate you,” the woman responds. “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?”
Cruz then appears to get up and head for the exit with his wife.
“How are you gonna vote, sir?” the woman asks.
In the second video, the protesters continue shouting, “We believe survivors!” as Cruz is seen struggling to get through the crowd.
“Beto’s way hotter than you, dude!” says one protester off camera, in reference to Democratic congressman Beto O’Rourke, Cruz’s challenger for his U.S. Senate seat.
“Excuse me, let my wife through,” Cruz says to the hostile crowd.
As Cruz nears the exit, a woman is heard shouting, “Are you going to confirm your best friend Kavanaugh?”
Another protester shouts: “Sexist, racist, anti-gay!”
When Cruz leaves the restaurant, the protesters cheer. A restaurant worker appears, telling the group to leave.
This is just the latest in a series of incidents in which administration officials and prominent Republicans have been harassed in public places.
Sen. Ted Cruz is latest Republican to be harassed in public. Incidents became common over the summer:
6/18: Miller heckled at restaurant
6/20: Sec. Nielsen chased out of restaurant
6/22: Sanders refused service at Red Hen
6/23: Pam Bondi heckled at movie theater
Many more… https://t.co/KOlbaIVCBy

You’ll note that this is rapidly becoming normal behavior. Unfortunately, by ignoring these people we are encouraging them. There is no downside to their behavior and they are increasing their aggressiveness. Miller was just heckled. Ted Cruz was actually obstructed from leaving. It is only a matter of time, weeks and not months, until a GOP politician or administration official gets a beatdown at the hands of these goons.
