Leading up to the midterm elections, the Biden administration and mainstream media have pushed a false narrative that MAGA supporters are domestic terrorists.
In addition to this not being true, multiple groups identifying as leftists have intimidated, terrorized, assaulted, and even shot those they disagree with.
Some of their victims included US Representative Steve Scalise, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and hundreds of police officers during their 202o nationwide riots.
With this in mind, when conservative public figures such as Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) participate in public events, they typically will bring armed security with them.
Following the Houston Astros winning the World Series for the second time in six seasons, the city held a parade celebrating their MLB world champions.
In what should have been a day of celebration for all of Houston police said officers arrested a man suspected of throwing a beer at Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas during the celebratory parade for the Houston Astros Monday.
Video captured the moment Cruz was waving to the crowd as a beer was launched at him. He appeared to deflect the can with the help of a nearby aide.
Police tweeted that officers had arrested a 33-year-old male for allegedly throwing the beer and added that Cruz had been hit in the chest/neck area by the can of beer.

“Nearby HPD officers arrested the male without further incident. 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,” police said in a second tweet.
Cruz was riding atop a military vehicle with his wife and their two daughters when the incident occurred. Video from another angle showed a second person assisting his family after the can bounced off of Cruz.
Some outlets reported that he was booed by some in the parade audience as well.
Police said Cruz did not require medical attention after the incident.
Liberal critics of Cruz praised the man for attacking the politician in what appeared to be political violence.
Give that guy a medal; he only did what half of America wants to do.
