As a member of the Human Rights Campaign’s comms team, you might think that writer Charlotte Clymer — whom you might remember as Charles Clymer — would be concerned about a Hispanic man being driven from a public place by screaming protesters. But oddly enough, Clymer doesn’t seem all that concerned about Ted Cruz and his wife being harassed out of a D.C. restaurant over the weekend:
I can tell you this much, y'all: Beto O'Rourke has never gotten run out of any restaurant. Of that I am certain.#TedCruz

OK … and?

And your point is what?

"My preferred candidate is better because he has never been harassed"
is an interesting argument. https://t.co/Hg1LtKpxUb

It’s not an argument.
— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) September 25, 2018
Certainly not a good one.
He’s a better candidate because he’s never been run out of an establishment?

Says more about the civility of the people who oppose him than the virtue of the candidate himself.

Because sane people don’t run other people out of restaurants.

Thats because those who oppose his political views are more civil and respectful #voteagainstliberals

I’m too busy with my life to go to whatever restaurant beto is at and yell obscenities and disturb him….. this is what’s wrong with the left right now
— Nick Scho (@nickscho303) September 25, 2018
That is because the people who oppose him have enough sense and moral decency not to treat another human being that way.

But if Clymer wants to play this game …
That's because it's best not to send O'Rourke speeding off given his history. https://t.co/2z7wrONk7Z

Beto runs from DWI arrests! Of that I am certain.

No but he has run others off the road, while drunk, and then attempted to flee. 🤷🏻♂️

No, he just runs from the police. While drunk. https://t.co/h7O1v7A7qt

Ouch. The truth hurts. And Clymer just can’t handle it.
So you're identifying which side has the brownshirts.
Good to know. Good to know.
— AgainstTrumpDude (@TheAmishDude) September 25, 2018
Very good to know.
So, your argument in favor of O'Rourke is that he is approved of by these fascists who use intimidation tactics while people are eating dinner?
Interesting strategy. Not compelling, but interesting.
