Biden Team Cancels Texas Event After Highway 'Ambush' by MAGA Cavalry

They seem nice...

Joe Biden’s presidential campaign canceled a Friday event in Austin, Texas, after harassment from a pro-Trump contingent.

Texas has emerged as a battleground state in Tuesday’s presidential election, with polls showing the typically Republican stronghold now only marginally favoring President Donald Trump. The Biden campaign scheduled a Friday event in the state, in a bid to drum up last-minute support.

But when the Biden campaign bus drove to Austin, it was greeted by a blockade of pro-Trump demonstrators, leading to what one Texas House representative described as an escalation “well beyond safe limits.”

The cancelation comes amid national anxiety about voter intimidation, a tactic the Trump campaign has implicitly endorsed.

Historian Dr. Eric Cervini was driving to help with the Biden campaign stop when he filmed a line of pickup trucks along the highway, many of them flying Trump flags. The drivers were “waiting to ambush the Biden/Harris campaign bus as it traveled from San Antonio to Austin,” Cervini tweeted.

“These Trump supporters, many of whom were armed, surrounded the bus on the interstate and attempted to drive it off the road,” he alleged. “They outnumbered police 50-1, and they ended up hitting a staffer’s car.”

3. Read the article. Someone is going to get hurt just trying to

vote or just innocently traveling down the highway. This is so wrong.

7. Campaign has lots of money, right?

Hire an entire bus full of huge, muscular bodyguard looking dudes to lead this campaign entourage wherever it goes. Put them in a bus with big windows so passers-by can see that there's bunch of huge, scary looking dudes in it. Put the dudes in tactical gear. Fill the back window of the bus with gun racks holding AR-15's. And put signs on the bus saying 'Biden Harris Campaign Security'.

Is this a sign of things to come from them this upcoming week as the results start trickling in? I can't help but think Trump will encourage them.

11. Get the phones out, record this lawbreakers endangering others w/ their recklessness.

Nail their a&&es. If anything, careless and reckless driving charges should apply to every one of these thugs.

In a way, I'm laughing that they are that worried about letting a busload of Biden campaigners through to Austin TX...just what are they attempting to do, hijack and take over all of the polling places too, and prevent people from voting too?

could file a report with their local or state law enforcement and/or hire lawyers and sue.

13. Keep in mind

Keep in mind the main thing these people are trying to do is bait the people into attacking them, so they can call the police and try to get them arrested, hoping it prevents them from voting. A lot of it is a big set up by the cowards.

15. True. Like you say, don't let the thugs win. Don't fall for their temptation and / or remarks.

Just ignore, and go in and vote. If they attempt to block you or prevent you from doing so, then most polling places do have contact numbers of numbers to call in case something happens. Even here on DU, there have been several posts about contact numbers, etc. in case of voting issues.

Take care!

27. Their job isn't to go out and aggressively confront people unless the

protectee’s life is at eminent risk. Controlling the crowd was the job of the Texas Rangers, that organization failed to do it’s job.

17. We have video, license numbers, make and model on the perps

I have some confidence that Texas will have to follow up when social media alone starts to ID the perps. Not absolute confidence under current circumstances but something will have to happen.

It's also organized and pre-meditated, and I have more confidence that the next US Attorney General will include it in the investigation and prosecution of hate groups that has to happen after Dorito Mussolini is sent packing
