Democrats and their media allies constantly condemn political violence.
But only if a left-winger is the victim.
Now one infuriating thing happened to Ted Cruz at a World Series victory parade.
The Houston Astros won their second World Series title in the past six years, and they recently held a parade to commemorate the victory.
But the parade was marred by an assault on Senator Ted Cruz who was on a float.
From The Daily Wire:
“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 feel 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, said to police, “I know, I’m an idiot. I’m sorry.”
The Houston Police Department wrote 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 attack 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 virtually zero national coverage.
If Beto O’Rourke had been the political figure hit, there would have been endless stories about how right-wing political violence is a threat to the nation.
But the Democrats and their media comrades develop amnesia when leftists are the ones committing crimes.
In fact, some Democrats even laughed and cheered Rand Paul’s neighbor for attacking him and fracturing his ribs.
The so-called mainstream media also have not covered the dozens of crisis pregnancy centers that have been firebombed.
The New York Times and Washington Post barely covered the story of a far-left terrorist who traveled to Brett Kavanaugh’s home with the intent of assassinating him.
Around that same time, leftist groups were paying for tips of Kavanaugh’s location when he was out in public so mobs could harass him.
New York gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin was attacked on stage at a rally, and the story barely got coverage.
There’s only one type of political violence that the Democrat-controlled media is interested in, and it’s not when conservatives and Republicans are the victims.
