Sen. Ted Cruz proved again how the idea of civility has broken down on the left.
The Texas Republican faced protesters yet again who harassed him at the airport over his support of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Cruz was seen walking through an airport and being followed by women hounding him with questions on why he voted to confirm Kavanaugh. But the senator, who is currently running for re-election, neither ignored nor argued with them, politely thanking one for expressing herself.
“You think that putting a sexual assaulter on the Court is a victory for women?” one woman off camera asked as another questioned men assaulting women.
“I believe in due process,” Cruz responded to one of the questions being hurled at him as he briskly walked through the airport in the video posted by Kyle Morris.

“You believe in due process? Lots of women were up there talking about their stories…” one of the women began but was interrupted by another asking the senator a series of non-questions.
“Do you believe in a man lying about his alcohol in front of the Senate and perjury? Do you believe in perjury?” she asked.
“Thank you for expressing your First Amendment rights,” Cruz turned and responded while still walking.
“So why do you support a man who abuses women?” she continued before breaking into a lone shouting chant.
“Shame on you Ted Cruz! Shame on you Ted Cruz! Shame on you Ted Cruz!” she shouted after the senator as he walked away.
“God bless you, ma’am,” he said, without ever getting angry or engaging in pointless debate with a shouting liberal.
Cruz similarly handled a group of protesters who harassed him at a Washington, D.C. restaurant a few weeks back, quietly getting up to leave without participating or contributing to the spectacle.
Republicans continue to be the target of leftists on a mission to harass and bully them, following the lead of Democrats like Rep. Maxine Waters. But most refuse to stoop to the low-level tactics, instead allowing the unhinged rants, chants and meltdowns to speak for themselves.
One anti-Cruz protester making the internet rounds was caught on video stealing and ripping up Ted Cruz yard signs in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston. His casual act soon turned dramatic, and frightening, as he realized he was being filmed.

Cruz’ calm demeanor while being stalked at the airport won him a round of praise on Twitter where he was declared a “class act.” Other choice words were used to describe the protesting women.
My Mom always said, “Don’t sink to their level, Font give them the satisfaction!” Good on ya, @tedcruz

Senator Cruz, Thanks for representing Texas with such dignity and hard work. Great job in the debate, and great response to such rudeness at the airport. Really proud you and @JohnCornyn are the Senators from Texas. Hang in there!
