Time after time we hear stories of conservative members of Congress (and workaday conservatives, too) being assaulted by unhinged, radical lefties.
The media doesn’t really care, because their guys aren’t being attacked.
Who can forget when Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) was nearly murdered during baseball practice? How about the time Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was tackled and broke some ribs?
Now, on Saturday, Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa had a glass of water tossed on him by a 26-year-old
man named Blake Gibbons. The protester was arrestedPolice said a Colorado man was arrested Friday after allegedly throwing water on Rep. Steve King at a restaurant in Fort Dodge, Iowa. King was having a group lunch when 26-year-old Blake Gibbins, of Lafayette, Colorado, approached the congressman’s table and allegedly threw a glass of water on King, the Fort Dodge police department said in a statement.
Based on witness information, police believe King was specifically targeted because of his position as a U.S. congressman. According to the Des Moines Register, Gibbins was visiting family in the area and did not know King would be in the restaurant.
What’s worse is that lefties are celebrating Gibbons as a “hero.”
They’ve even launched a GoFundMe in support.
