The increasing amount of craziness spreading across the right, craziness that GOP politicians have stoked and relied on to win elections against the “evil” libs, is starting to come back to haunt them. Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) found this out earlier in the week when he was confronted by a far-right wing voter who called him a globalist and a sellout for serving on the World Economic Forum. On Sunday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) got the same treatment.

At the Texas state GOP convention, a man in the crowd confronted Cruz, who was seated at a table speaking to the people around him. The man berated Cruz, asking him why he became friends with Trump after he insulted both Cruz and his wife, calling him a coward and a globalist. Cruz tried shooting back by saying, “what were you doing?” but the man isn’t an elected official, so it’s not clear how that was relevant.
In recent weeks, Cruz has been confronted by other voters for some of his worst policy stances. At a vigil in Uvalde after nineteen children were shot by an 18-year-old with an AR-15, a British reporter pushed Cruz to answer questions about gun control. Cruz angrily stormed away. At a sushi restaurant, Cruz was confronted by a gun control activist who called him a murderer and laid the deaths of those children at his feet. Cruz smirked and wiggled his fingers in goodbye as that man was dragged away.
Twitter had no sympathy at all for Cruz’s plight. Read some of their comments below:
