Democrats and their Fake News Media allies constantly decry political violence.
But only if a left-winger is the target.
Now Democrats are attempting to ignore one violent attack on Ted Cruz.
The Houston Astros won their second World Series title in the past six years, and they recently held a parade to celebrate the victory.
But the parade was marred by an attack on Senator Ted Cruz who was on a float.
The Daily Wire reported that “Houston law enforcement officials released a statement Monday afternoon saying that they arrested a 33-year-old man for assaulting Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) during a Houston Astros celebration parade . . . The can of beer that was thrown at Cruz did not appear to be opened, meaning it would be considerably heavier than an empty can, as a thud could be heard once it fell into the back of the military Hummer that Cruz was riding in. Cruz’s young daughters were standing next to him when the attack happened.”
The suspect, Joseph Arcidiacano, told police, “I know, I’m an idiot. I’m sorry.”
The Houston Police Department said in a statement, “HPD made one arrest during today’s victory parade . . . A male, 33, threw a beer can at U.S. Senator Ted Cruz as the Senator was on a float in the 2400 block of Smith St. The beer can struck the Senator in the chest/neck area. The Senator did not require medical attention . . . Nearby HPD officers arrested the male without further incident . . . He was taken to jail and faces assault charges.”
Cruz took the incident in stride, joking, “As always I’m thankful for the Houston Police and Capitol Police for their quick action . . . I’m also thankful that the clown who threw his White Claw had a noodle for an arm.”
The incident received almost zero national coverage.
If Beto O’Rourke had been the political figure struck, there would have been endless stories about how right-wing political violence is a threat to the nation.
But the Democrats and their Fake News Media allies develop amnesia when leftists are the ones committing crimes.
In fact, some Democrats laughed and cheered Rand Paul’s neighbor for viciously attacking him and fracturing his ribs.
The corporate-controlled press also has not covered the dozens of crisis pregnancy centers that have been firebombed.
There’s only one type of political violence that the Democrat-controlled media is interested in.
