WATCH: Antifa Members Force Ted Cruz Out of DC Restaurant – Post Threatening Message Online [VID]

Monday evening, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his wife Heidi were driven from a Washington, D.C. restaurant after protesters confronted them as they tried to dine, heckling them for their support of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

In a post left on their Facebook page (posted below), the protesters warned Cruz and other Republicans “You are not safe. We will find you.”

The group was led by Smash Racism DC, a self-proclaimed Antifa group which has attempted to re-brand itself (their original name can still be seen in the link to their Facebook page). The group posted a video of the confrontation, showing Cruz and his wife having to wade through the protesters as they shouted in their faces “We Believe Survivors.”

The incident is not unlike similar instances of harassment directed at other Republicans, including Sarah Sanders and Mitch McConnell.

Smash Racism DC released a statement claiming their group was made up of members of the “Democratic Socialists of America, Anarchists, women, sexual assault survivors, and members of the LGBTQ community.”

This was the statement posted by Smash Racism DC on their Facebook page, along with the video.

No—you can’t eat in peace—your politics are an attack on us all.

Your votes are a death wish. Your votes are hate crimes.

Tonight Senator Ted Cruz arrived at Fiola, an upscale restaurant mere steps from the White House, to enjoy a hearty Italian dinner. 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. 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 Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination. At least he could have had activists not interrupt 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. While our disruption does not compare in scale to the disruptions his actions as a Senator have had on millions of American lives, we hope that it reminds Cruz and others like him that they are not safe from the people they have hurt.

This is a message to Ted Cruz, Brett 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.

Sincerely,
Some Anti Fascist Hooligans

We demand a world free of sexual violence and state violence. We want a world without prisons, borders, or capitalism. You should be embarrassed for existing.

Even Cruz’s opponent in the November election, Beto O’Rourke, spoke out against the incident.

Here is the video of the confrontation.
