On Monday evening, leftist activists thought they’d employ their tried and true tactics of harassment against Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife while they were attempting to have dinner at a restaurant in Washington, D.C.
The group, Smash Racism D.C., was super happy with the moment, which was captured on video, claiming it to be a great victory for their cause, which as it turns out, wasn’t an entirely accurate summation of what transpired.
In fact, according to the owner and head chef of the restaurant, Fabio Trabocchi, the group’s efforts were a big fail.
CNN’s Kate Bennett reported Tuesday that the restaurant has since clarified what really happened: After Trabocchi’s management team moved the Cruzes to safety while they called police and got the left-wing activists out of there, the Cruzes sat right back down and “finished their meal in peace.”
“Last night, protesters entered Fiola with the apparent purpose of confronting one of our guests,” the restaurant group said in a statement. “Recognizing that there was potential for escalation, our stellar management team immediately diffused the situation. Per our policy for events of this nature, the police were called and the guest escorted to privacy — our highest priority is always the well-being of our customers. When the situation resolved a few minutes later, our guests returned to thank the staff for their support and to finish their exceptional meal.”
The statement ends with a strong assertion of the restaurant’s commitment to respecting people of diverse ideologies and opinions.
“The FT group welcomes all patrons and is proud of its reputation not just of culinary excellent but also of creating a welcoming space for all, irrespective of creed, ideology or opinion,” the statement reads. “Chef Fabio believes politics — like elbows — are best left off the dining table and we welcome everyone.”
This is a prime example of how the left often uses deceptive tactics like, video editing, in order to make a particular situation or confrontation appear to be on a more grand scale than it actually is.
The hope, it seems, is that such a tactic will drive the apathy from those who are social media activists to get off the couch and engage in actual, physical harassment instead of doing it online.
Fortunately, there are enough decent people still left in the world to not let folks like those in Smash Racism D.C. get away with this kind of shenanigans.
