A group of protesters in Washington, D.C., shouted down Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife in a restaurant Monday night, according to video footage that was posted on Twitter.

The group appeared to chastise Cruz over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who is facing multiple sexual assault allegations. Two one-minute video clips were posted to the Twitter page of a group called “Smash Racism DC.”

The group’s Facebook page states that it is “united” in the fight against the “Nazis, Ku Klux Klan.”

This is pretty typical of militant groups. They surround themselves with people that share similar ideologies, and then it's a matter of who can be the most extreme to set ranks. You see these extremist groups everywhere: antifa destroying property, pro-life radicals killing doctors, Westboro Baptist Church protesting military funerals, or simply Alex Jones followers harassing Sandy Hook parents.

I don't think any one of these groups will constitute an entire generation. But we have to be aware of the fact that these groups exists.
The tricky part for the rest of the population is how we label these groups in society, and know what is legal vs. exercising freedom of speech.

With you RM3. Extreme is extreme, but, this should not be happening. This man and woman were just having dinner....this crap shouldn't happen to anyone...THIS IS HOW EXTREME the left have become.

Yes, it has happened on both sides, but in the last few years...the left has lead the lunatic race by a far margin.

I am a little confused by the "Nazi KKK" labels being applied to someone named Cruz, maybe I am not the only one who is confused?

From time to time millions of folks have gone completely bonkers. This is definitely one of those times.

......
This is identity politics at its finest. How do you get these labels to someone named Cruz? Easy.. You simply put them under one umbrella, then it's a simple association exercise. For instance:

>> The KKK supports Trump
>> Cruz Supports Trump

The support for Trump links these two entities. The rest is personal bias.

Another example:
>> Obama supports the left
>> ANTIFA supports the left

Therefore, Obama and ANTIFA are linked by association with the left. But then the confusion: Click here

Wait... What!!!?? Antifa protesting Obama? How does that make any sense? (That's rhetorical)

This is the aftermath of bundling everyone under one blanket.

It's true that some left leaning groups have been active against the current administration, but that's because we have a right leaning president.
When we had a left leaning president, we had more activity from the right leaning opposition.
The issue here is that a good portion of 'canned' republicans called these people/acts patriotic, so in their mind, this was a good thing. Remember, being bold, in your face, not political correct was hammered by the republican rhetoric? This is why things now look lopsided.

We now have a mirror effect. Check this article and tell me if the author sees this harassment as a good or a bad thing. Despicable in my opinion.

Harassment, violence, lies, etc should be called out regardless if we agree or disagree with the person/group being targeted.

Sexual harassment, sexual assault, etc. are big accusations.
I think the following needs to happen: 1) hold judgement until there is due process and 2) harsher punishment for false accusations.

As far as the political stuff. mehh!!

Good question, but is there agreement that these allegations are serious that require due process and until then, we should reserve judgement?

The worst case scenario for society is that we start claiming winners and losers prior to due process and that becomes the norm.

So back to the question, why now?

My take is that it's political.

I had a heated (but civil) conversation with my wife about this. And while I think she brought some really good points to consider, politics was the underlying influence in my opinion. Regardless of the motivators though, promote due process. Then, let the system handle it.

Political Payback
It is the dirty devious world of Washington. Republicans held the Obummer supreme court appointment until the 2016 election. Democrats feel that they lost a critical political appointment. The democrats are doing everything in their power to delay, confuse and obfuscate the rightful ability of the president to appoint a judge to the high court. Naked Political Politics in it's worst form.

that pretty much sums it up. Maybe it did happen. But you know there are sharks out there that don't care about her (even when pretending they do). It's all about political moves.

I worry that in a digital, see all era of big data people will be judged by their actions a lifetime ago. In an information age that is only becoming more and more intrusive, who is free from the microscopic judgement of their every waking moment for the entirety of their lives?

Is a moment in time of a 17-year old applicable to someone approaching 60? Is the developmental state of a 17-year old even in question as it applies to a supreme court judge?

Did we apply the same judgment to , for instance, John McCain?

If we can't confirm this individual, then who? Who can be judge to be without fault at every moment of their lives?

"Well, nothing bad can happen now."

So would it be fair to go back and analyze every moment of the life of whomever the Dems might throw out there? Let 'em toss out a name. Would it be OK to go back and find they were serial copiers on spelling tests in the 3rd grade? I'm mean who wants a supreme court judge that 1., can't spell and 2., is comfortable cheating!?!?

and now you understand what Sen Lindsey Graham was getting to... if they allow as a whole this type of behavior to continue, should the balance of power shift back to the left, then its open season on every single appointee, nominee, candidate that they choose to bring forward. conservatives will pull the same stunts to truthfully or falsely smear and discredit ANYONE that identifies with the left, to delay and obstruct at all costs. and will lead to a wholly dysfunctional government at all levels.

That is what we should never evolve to. it is dangerous to our republic and to the rule of law. It will only lead to a government and populace that is ruled by fear, power and extremism... and end up resembling those of 3rd world Islamic countries.
