GOP politicians, NRA Officials… hell, ANY dumb-ass with a MAGA hat or Trump bumper sticker should NOT be allowed to go out in public without being called out and confronted- THAT is how we deal with this insanity… we make it clear it is NOT acceptable in civilized society and we make their lives hell in every way legally available to us.
Sen. Ted Cruz, fresh off the stage at the National Rifle Association’s convention in Houston, sat down to a sushi dinner that was interrupted on Friday by a fellow Texan who confronted the Republican lawmaker over his hard-line stance on firearms, three days after 21 people were gunned down at an elementary school in the state.
The end of the confrontation saw the man shouting above security officers walking him toward the door.
“Nineteen children died! That’s on your hands! Ted Cruz, that’s on your hands!” he says in video of the incident.
The man, Benjamin Hernandez, told HuffPost that he was in Houston because his digital advertising company was livestreaming the protests staged outside the NRA convention. When he saw Cruz walk into the same restaurant where he was having dinner, Hernandez said, he thought, “Oh, hell no.”
“A couple of days ago, I had caught that clip of Beto [O’Rourke] confronting [Texas Gov. Greg] Abbott, and I wrote something to the effect of, ‘Confront all these hypocritical assholes like Beto did.’ And it’s really easy to tweet, right?” Hernandez told HuffPost. “But then two days later, Ted Cruz is walking in this space where I am, and it’s like, OK, I have to go talk to him now.”
