Chaos Erupts at Cantor Election Night Headquarters After His Departure

Laura Vozzella, Washington Post, June 10, 2014

As if the political drama were not powerful enough, chaos erupted at election night headquarters shortly after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor conceded his stunning defeat to tea party-backed conservative David Brat. Cantor addressed his supporters for about four minutes at a suburban Richmond hotel ballroom, then boarded an SUV without taking questions from reporters scurrying after him.Then it got really rambunctious. In the room of downcast Cantor allies, a new energy suddenly erupted — but not the kind they wanted on election night. A group of immigration activists stormed the ballroom, screaming and waving a flag. “What do we want? Immigration reform! When do we want it? Now!”

A few Cantor supporters tried to block the protesters’ entrance into the ballroom, and pushing and shoving ensued. And before they reached the microphone, one Cantor supporter threw his glass of wine at a female protester. She swore at him in return.

A hotel employee took the microphone Cantor had used and told the protesters in Spanish that the police were on their way.

        Instead of coming to console their Amnesty champion who campaigned diligently and spent 5 million dollars, Hispanics came to tear him apart for losing the election. Nice people. You’ll enjoy having them in your neighborhood.

          “…You’ll enjoy having them in your neighborhood.”

          Those kinds of people already live in my own neighborhood, and I sure as hell DON’T enjoy it, nor would any other authentically white man, woman, or child.

        I was worried about you.

        I thought maybe you’d done something and been hauled off by the thought police!!

        If you are locked up again, will you have access to the Internet? I have no idea what goes on in prisons these days but it seems prisoners have a lot of rights — hell, in California they’re opening up the doors and letting ’em out, including rapists, murderers, child molesters, armed robbers.

            This happened in my state, if you notice the look on his face, you can tell how incredulous he is that we even had the nerve to arrest him. Don’t we know that he is above the law and is not subject to our idea’s of right and wrong. He could care less that he killed a “gringo” kid, why our we bothering him. As the attorney general in Massachusetts said, “there is no such thing as illegal here”, well you can thank her and others of her ilk for the boys death.

          • Jacobite2

            In Mexico, the Policia would’ve arrested the first gringo who walked by. This actually happened to me in Juarez. I was interested to find out, while in jail, that Mexicans consider homosexuality to be a form of possession. They kept busy trying to beat the devil out of some poor h*m* who happened to be in there.

      Be careful not to chase them away once they see enough reality it can break thru their brainwashing. If you are reading this and hear a voice in your head saying “not all blacks are like that” ask yourself if you ever meet one in real life as smart as seen on ADs or fictional TV.

  • ncpride

    What was the point for this? Did the idiots not realize Cantor had just been utterly defeated? He can’t do a thing for you, squatters so wait for the next ‘conservative’ to be bought and paid for.

    • borogirl54

      They were hoping that he would go back to Congress for the remainder of this session and push for immigration reform. Not happening.

        They had no idea he’d lost. They’re idiots.

  • borogirl54

    These illegal immigrant activists do not realize that by demanding immigration reform, they are less likely to get it. Where is ICE when you need them? Where are the buses to pick them up and put them in detention and deport them back to where they came from.

    Either amnesty or gay marriage is gonna cause a civil war, both no one wants but it is getting shoved down our throats.

    And they wonder why we don’t want them.

      That’s why whites stupidly flee their neighborhoods. Can’t be fleeing neighborhoods. Pretty soon there won’t be anything worth fleeing to.

      • Jacobite2

        They have kids. It’s easy to talk about standing up to the wogs when it’s just you (or maybe you and a great wife). But who’s going to sacrifice his kids on the altar of resistance? Even the Leftists who claim to be in favor of integrated schools don’t send their own kids to them.

  • Samuel_Morton

    Is this the tipping point when whites are finally seeing the writing on the wall?

    Maybe not, but let’s at least enjoy this symbolic victory. This round is on me…

    • Yancy Derringer

      Cantor’s defeat was far more than symbolic – the chances of an immigration reform bill passing this year just fell to nil. Policy will continue according to either Executive Ignorance or Executive Order.

      • MikeofAges

        How do you spell l-a-m-e d-u-c-k? that’s when they’ll do it. During the lame duck session, in November and December. But, the bill will not include quick citizenship. Unless the Democrats themselves decide to not let it go through. That’s how they play the game. What’s millions of people condemned to the shadows, compared to electing a Democratic president and packing the Supreme Court for a generation? These are the “if you want to make an omelet, you have to break a few eggs” people. Don’t forget it for a minute.

        • Jacobite2

          Don’t forget this: the omelet is just a cover story (has anybody ever seen one?), they just want to break all the eggs.

          • MikeofAges

            The omelet is the postulated outcome. It will appear once the process of socialist construction is complete and new man is created. Myself, I’d rather just muddle through and wait for the Messiah to show up and get things straight.

          • Jacobite2

            All Leftists ever accomplish is the egg-breaking. Nobody, anywhere, has ever created a New Man. At some point we have to realize that: 1) New Man cannot be created by totalitarianism; 2) Leftists know this and are just trying to rationalize their true goals, which are mass torture and murder, and the destruction of existing society.

          • MikeofAges

            We know that. All Believers everywhere under any system of Belief know that. Stoic atheists and humanists know that. The only people who think different are the starry-eyed dupes. The leaders, some of them, might believe that the ideal society can be created, but that it will not be seen in their own lifetimes. From that they take license to destroy. Others of the leaders might be absolute psychopaths whose joy is destroying things and manipulating people.

          • Jacobite2

            I’m not sure so many people know this. For example, the Enlightenment is still referred to positively, in spite of the fact that its greatest achievement was the creation of Leftism of every type. The Enlightenment’s entire philosophy is built on one belief — that man has no instincts, i.e., Human Nature does not exist. Anyone who believes this, besides being divorced from reality, is free to dream of any or all manners of altering human behavior. Everything depends on the environment, and we can manipulate the environment. Hence all Leftism.

          • MikeofAges

            Another good point. I have a low opinion of the Enlightenment even though I think I take after the philosophes quite a lot.

            Fortunately, I got some fortuitous help. I saw a sign in neighborhood bar once which said: “Be the best at what you are, even if what you are is no good”. After I saw that I felt better. LOL.

          • Jacobite2

            The problem the French thinkers have always had is that once they come up with a great theory, they stop. They don’t care whether or not it works in practice.

          • MikeofAges

            They export their theories, and let other people put them into practice. The French have a great culture nevertheless, but their faith in their ability to adopt others into their tribe might prove their downfall. The iconic liberal Woody Allen made a film recently called “Midnight In Paris”. Whatever you think of Allen, I don’t think he is short on IQ points. But in this case, the irony went right over his head even so. Wouldn’t you say?

          • Jacobite2

            The last Allen movie I saw was “A Walk with Love and Death”(?), so I can’t give an opinion on his ‘work’. “Play it Again, Sam” was pretty funny, although as a Mid-Westerner it might as well have been a NatGeo documentary. I haven’t met any people like that (except when I travel to certain foreign parts, like NYC). I’m sure he’s smart, and, as an outsider to American society, he can see some of our foibles that a native never notices. I’d say French society was beheaded during the French Revolution. The Jacobins (as I point out as often as possible — maybe more often) were the first Leftists, and Leftists share one goal, to destroy their host society. Ethnic solidarity and a common religion are the 2 most obvious targets to undermine any society, but any component can be attacked to weaken the social fabric. That’s the point in a way: it takes a co-ordinated, disciplined crew with a plan to build a house, but any busload of fools with sledgehammers and axes can tear one down, each doing his own thing. Prior to the Revo, I don’t believe the French were ignorant enough to believe that any abo speaking decent French was a Frenchman — they had to fall under the Rule of Reason to believe that idiocy.

    • HamletsGhost

      To be fair, both candidates share a superficial resemblance. Or perhaps all bespectacled palefaces look alike to them.

      • MikeofAges

        They assumed Cantor would win. The demonstration just went ahead as planned. You gotta get hyped up to do this kind of stuff. The demonstrators, being the foot soldiers, may not have been too clear on what happened anyway.

  • Ungrateful lot, they just cost Cantor his job. Hope he hears their chants in his dreams.

  • Peter Connor

    Hispanics aren’t very bright…

  • Frank_DeScushin

    White conservatives are far too wimpy. If a group of white conservative protestors busted into a black or Hispanic political gathering you can guarantee that those white protestors would be physically confronted. Blacks and Hispanics pull stunts like this because they know that there are little or no repercussions. Whites will do nothing.

    • John Ambrose

      If whites physically confronted a bunch of blacks or Hispanics at a political gathering, they’d be charged with hate crimes in the blink of an eye.
      And in modern Amerika they’d be convicted and given stiff jail sentences where they would live in constant fear of attack and abuse by all the melanin enhanced prisoners.

      • John

        That’s probably what would happen. I’ve already told my wife she might as well get used to the idea that I’m going to end up in jail eventually for refusing to put up with the BS. For example, if they ever pass any holocaust denial laws in this country, I might as well drive myself down to the station and turn myself in because that dog won’t hunt in this neck of the woods.

    • 4321realist

      Threatening violence and the will and ability to carry it out is the only thing that is respected in this current atmosphere.

      That’s why white weenies cater to blacks. They want to do everything possible to keep them from tearing things up and jeopardizing their wealth, assets and standing.

      Whites aren’t respected by anybody, because it is common knowledge they won’t take to the streets.

      With one BIG exception…….. which is the patriot community, the same types who were ready to fight after Ruby Ridge, Waco and recently at the Bundy ranch.

    • LHathaway

      Notice, Cantor made a hasty exist from the scene Before the protesters arrived. Maybe he was worried about black or hispanic stunts.

  • MekongDelta69

    All leftists – no matter what their specific agenda – are mentally deranged juveniles.

    No exceptions…

  • Truth Teller

    Obviously the demonstration was planned by Cantor. The protestors would burst in after he won demanding amnesty now. Ha Ha

  • WR_the_realist

    This is hilarious. David Brat won in part because he’s strong on enforcing immigration law and the wishy washy sorta pro-amnesty Eric Cantor gets the Saul Alinsky treatment.

  • cecilhenry

    Cantor and all these traitors need to be arrested, jailed and made to live in the communities they imported (or follow them when they are deported).

    That’s justice.

        • Katherine McChesney

          Last week I interrupted a Spanish conversation between three Mexicans who were working at my apartment complex. I told them that in exchange for their gratitude to America for giving them their jobs they should show it by speaking English. One reply was that I should learn Spanish. I told him that I don’t want to learn an ugly, gutteral language and that English is the most beautiful language on earth. I did not wait for a reply.

          • Anglokraut

            I’m learning Spanish with Rosetta Stone. It’s not difficult to spell, at least, but the native speakers in the software sound nothing like what the Mestizos all around me speak. I suspect that the Mexicans here speak the Spanish version of ebonics.

          • Katherine McChesney

            I have no desire to learn Spanish. As I said, it’s an ugly gutteral language best spoken south of the border.

          • Anglokraut

            I can understand the anger at the Mestizos, but the Spanish language itself isn’t that bad. It does move a bit fast for my ears though; Romance languages seem to be quick and choppy, but not guttural. Languages from the Germanic branch of the language-tree are often described as “guttural”, if by that they mean “throaty”.
            I’ve studied German, French, and Spanish, in addition to English of course, and the only language that I speak without having to consciously think about tongue placement is my native language (English) and my grandparent’s language (German). That just can’t be a happy coincidence–there has to be a linguistic reason.

          • John

            Excellent, excellent move on your part. More people need to learn that these people are criminals and trying to suborn our country. Override your natural or schooled inclination to be pleasant and be as rude as possible to all these squat monsters. A few months ago one of them on the treadmill next to mine at the gym said something to me. I didn’t bother taking off my headphones. I just told him “I don’t talk to foreigners” and went back to my workout.

          • Katherine McChesney

            Wow. Great answer. I’ll remember that one if I need it.

          • John

            Thanks. I’m still trying to come up with one as equally effective and non-provocative for blacks. Problem there is they’re just so damn touchy anything you say to them is liable to provoke a fight. The closest I’ve come is when one is trying to chat me up about something is “I don’t watch TV or I can’t stand sports”. That’s been real effective in the past.

    Immediately after Cantor exited the room, a group of political demonstrators stormed in, waving a flag and shouting

    Was it the Mexican or Che flag? ….But, I thought illegal aliens were “natural Republicans,” at least that’s what Jeb Bush and former Republican National Chairman Ken Mehlman told us and Judge Napolitano said the GOP should “welcome them with open arms…where they would feel more comfortable than the democrats.”

    one Cantor supporter threw his glass of wine onto a female protestor.

    Sounds like sour grapes!!

    It’s been a good two days. First RAT Cantor defeated in Virginia and this story…

    Two armed criminals reportedly put a gun to a 17-year-old girl’s head on Monday night as she was outside retrieving something from a car. The man, whose intentions still aren’t entirely clear, then ordered the teenager to take them into her house — a decision that would prove to have deadly consequences….Police identify the suspect who was killed as 31-year-old Terrell Johnson

    Ha uh ha he ha. A little nice piece of provocation to put vinegar on the wound. Whoever is putting this together deserves a medal!

  • MikeofAges

    Chaos broke out? No, disruptive demonstrators created a disruption. I am sure Cantor’s supporter were unhappy. But they did not start behaving chaotically. That was the province of outsiders.

    Why weren’t they invading David Brat’s victory party? Never mind. I don’t want to know.

    • Brat didn’t have enough money to have a campaign HQ, that’s why.

    • Who Me?

      Because this is how they act in their own countries. They bribe the politician, at which point he had better win and deliver–or else.

  • DiversityIsDeath

    This could not have been their original intention, could it? Surely these demonstrators planned on Cantor winning, and planned on making a public show of attacking him. Either that, or all pumped up with adrenaline and entitlement, they set out to to bully winner Brat, but found he had already left the building. Instead of going away they stupidly decided to vent their pent up rage on the loser Cantor. I would love to hear their “reasoning” for pulling this stunt.

    • M.Magog

      having had many dealings with this demographic, it does not surprise me at all.

    Anybody notice whether this was covered on FNC? No sense even asking about other channels. Yesterday, I went 0 for 5 on NR with Comments deleted. Because I was Commenting on 4 different subjects, it wasn’t hard to guess what the common ‘magic words’ might be. Know what — the chain-yanker were the words “white people”. Friends, this whole anti-white thing is spreading like gangrene throughout all media. Wonder why it’s so difficult to get whites thinking like an ethnic group? It’s the PC Police crack-down on free speech. And make no mistake — the thoughts that may not be spoken today are thoughts that were shared by 90% of white people just 50 years ago. Heck, I remember well how excited the NR Gang were about “The Camp of the Saints” in the early 70s. Today, they’ve switched sides! Orwell didn’t know how right he was!
