The mainstream loves to endlessly cover any violence towards Democrats.
But here’s one story they won’t tell you about.
A man was just arrested for a shocking assault of a top Republican.
Houston law enforcement arrested a 33-year-old man for allegedly assaulting Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) during an Astros World Series parade on Monday.
“HPD made one arrest during today’s victory parade,” the Houston Police Department said in a statement. “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,” the statement continued. “He was taken to jail and faces assault charges. We will release the suspect’s name and booking photo here when formal charges are filed.”
Joseph Halm Arcidiacono, 33, has been charged with a felony after throwing two cans of alcohol at the senator. The cans appear to have been unopened and Cruz’s 13-year and 11-year-old daughters were standing beside him.
National Review reported that according to court records Arcidiacono was released on a $40,000 bond after being charged.
The alleged attacker “used and exhibited a deadly weapon, namely an unopened metal beverage can,” court records stated.
Arcidiacono told officers, “I know, I’m an idiot. I’m sorry,” as he was arrested, according to The Independent.
A video was posted on social media that showed a can being thrown at Cruz. Both he and a staffer reached out their hand in an effort to deflect the can before it hit them.
“As always I’m thankful for the Houston Police and Capitol Police for their quick action,” Cruz said in a statement to The Daily Wire. “I’m also thankful that the clown who threw his White Claw had a noodle for an arm.”
The Texas senator made an appearance on ABC’s “The View” where host Whoopi Goldberg argued that Democrats don’t get violent when they don’t get the election results they want.
“We may not like when Republicans win, but we don’t go, and we don’t storm,” she claimed.
A shocked Cruz asked, “Did I miss an entire year of antifa riots where cities across this country were burning?”
“I don’t know what an antifa riot is,” Goldberg responded.
“Your position is the Left doesn’t engage in violence? Really?” the senator asked.
An annoyed Goldberg then said, “You just accused us of doing something we didn’t do.”
This is the Democratic tactic, any violence that is committed by the left against Republicans isn’t reported in the same way, it is never considered and is quickly forgotten.
