We’ve repeatedly warned that the division festering among the Left and Right could soon lead to violence across America and the real possibility of a civil war. Earlier this year we reported that Anti-Fascist groups were beginning to arm themselves for physical violence after taking a beat down in Berkeley.
And while attacks have thus far been limited to protesters clashing on college campuses and speaking venues for Republicans, things have now taken a drastic turn.
Hours ago, as supporters of illegal immigration massed to protest the policies being put into place by the new White House administration and the Texas State government, two Texas legislators nearly came to blows in the Capital.
According to Republican legislative representative Matt Rinaldi, he was accosted by Democrat Poncho Nevarez.
The argument stemmed from the fact that scores of protesters were waving signs in Austin, TX, with many identifying themselves as illegal immigrants. Rinaldi reportedly had enough of the disturbance and contacted ICE agents. When Rinaldi advised the House Floor that the agents had been contacted, Nevarez apparently lost total control of his faculties and began assaulting him, to the point that other legislators had to step in to break up the fight.
Nevarez then directly threatened violence against Rinaldi because of his call to ICE. Reports claim that not only did Nevarez threaten Rinaldi’s life but indicated that he would wait for Rinaldi to leave the legislature and would get him on the way to his car.
Rinaldi, who is a concealed handgun licensee, responded by saying that he would shoot in self defense if forced to and reportedly said that he would put a bullet in the head of Nevarez if confronted.
But even after the protest ended, tensions remained high. Rep. Ramon Romero, a Democrat from Fort Worth, said he was standing with fellow Democratic Rep. Cesar Blanco of El Paso when Republican colleague Matt Rinaldi came over and said: “This is BS. That’s why I called ICE.”
Rinaldi, of Irving in suburban Dallas, and Blanco then began shouting at each other. A scuffle nearly ensued before other lawmakers separated the two.
Later, a group of Democratic lawmakers held a press conference to accuse Rinaldi of threatening to “put a bullet in the head” of someone on the House floor during a second near scuffle. They said the comment was made in the direction of Democratic Rep. Poncho Nevarez, from the border town of Eagle Pass.
In a subsequent Facebook statement, Rinaldi admitted saying he’d called federal authorities and threatened to shoot Nevarez but said his life was in danger, not the other way around.
“Nevarez threatened my life on the House floor after I called ICE on several illegal immigrants who held signs in the gallery which said ‘I am illegal and here to stay,'” Rinaldi wrote. He said Democrats were encouraging protesters to ignore police instructions and, “When I told the Democrats I called ICE, Representative Ramon Romero physically assaulted me, and other Democrats were held back by colleagues.”
Rinaldi took to Facebook to share details of the incident and express his concerns:
Supporters of undocumented and illegal immigration will no doubt applaud the threats made by Poncho Nevarez, underscoring just how tense the situation has become across the country.
The only question now is… how long until the shooting starts?
democrats going mental- cathy griffith just threatened the president as well
Buses from NM and AZ were off-loading protestors at the Texas capitol, with signs saying “I AM AN ILLEGAL WITH RIGHTS!” and “People Are NOT Illegal!”, others attacking our splendid governor, Greg Abbott. Who paid for those buses and the trip expenses? Inquiring minds want to know.
Mexico has been interfering in our elections since LBJ!
Illegals and their liberal supporters threatening Texas legislators for daring to uphold our laws re immigration in the Gallery @ the Texas Legislature Building.
How many millions of $s/Pesos has Mexico donated to the democrats to keep their illegals in America, since LBJ?
How much illegal Mexican money did Obama and Clinton receive personally and for their elections?
How many illegal Mexicans voted for Illiarily in the last election and for Obama's two terms?
How many illegal Mexicans voted for rats in our cities, counties, states and of course at our federal level?
How many Hispanic tv channels do we have on Comcast, Direct TV, Dish TV and other tv providers, that we pay for and dont speak Spanish? Who owns those Spanish only channels? Why do we have to pay for Spanish TV channels/stations, when we dont speak Spanish?
Who owns the NY Slimes and other election meddling companies?
It is past time for our Congress to stop the Mexican meddling/interference/hacking at every level in America.
How many millions of $s has Mexico donated to the democrats to keep their illegals here, at every level, city, county, state and Federal level?
Again, the Russia/Russia bs is just a rat and rino distraction from the real meddlers and real interfering evil scum of our elections. The Mexican Government, their illegals here, the rat politicians, and our Rinos, who want them for their cheap labor and votes, are the real meddlers in our election, not Russia!
Time to enforce our standing laws against illegal immigration and illegals voting!
The enemy of men’s souls is not happy.....he’s sure got a lot of lefties willingly on the dark side!
Thanks for posting this. We had not seen this before.
Who paid for these illegals to cross state borders to commit crimes?
Why isn’t Juan McAinal upset about this versus his insanity about Russia/Russia.
He gave this altercation a lot of time thins morning. What jumped out at me was as the demonstrators were trying to make enough noise to shut down the legislative business they were waving signs declaring themselves as illegals. The angry leftist latinos took offense at one of the lawmakers saying he was going to call ICE.
My simple thought was if any criminal waved a sign declaring his crime or intended crime, wouldn't it be right to call the cops?
This morning NPR implied that Rinaldi started the fight with Nevarez, threatening to shoot him in the head. Rinaldi is the bad guy, according to NPR Morning Edition.
Here’s *this morning’s* segment on NPR where Morning Edition portrayed Matt Rinaldi as a violent instigator, a bad guy triggered by Democrats’ use of Facebook Live:
It was really quite incredible how NPR included information that made Rinaldi look absolutely horrible, and intentionally excluded any hint of information that accounted for his “threat,” that might have shown the Democrats to be the instigators.
ALL illegal aliens ARE subject to removal.
We should not give them the opportunity to victimize Americans before they are removed.
There are NO law-abiding illegal aliens.
ALL illegal aliens MUST commit other crimes DAILY to continue their illegal presence.
Document fraud, illegal employment and benefit fraud at the very least.
Remove ALL illegal aliens, they are citizens of other countries who broke into our country.
How many would allow home invaders to stay in their house?
............texas has a long history of punch outs and scuffles on the floor of the House.
Bear in mind that at least one third of House Members on the floor of the house are packing at any one time.
True, but its a sure thing the only thing this Democrat shoots off is his mouth.
As a law abiding citizen, I believe you are expected/required to report criminal behavior.
Democrats are the party of illegality.
“Nevarez apparently lost total control of his faculties and began assaulting him, to the point that other legislators had to step in to break up the fight.”
The holding tank will be crowded. You can’t assault someone for taking legal action. So apparently Nevarez doesn’t like legal action. If that’s the case, you are expected as a representative to stay within legalities. So you should be removed from your position after you get out of jail as you cannot perform the tasks you swore to accomplish.
If you don’t like a law, then get it changed. But until then, you adhere to it. And by trying to harm a citizen staying within his rights, you are well outside yours. And wasn’t this the definition of a hate crime?
I’m a firm believer that any buses bringing in protesters should have their tires flattened. A person can simply unscrew the valve stem and let the air out. No need to slash the tires.
Then the hired agitators will be stuck for hours on end waiting for the repairs to be completed. Plenty of time for ICE to visit them and weed out the illegals, yes?
Demonrat Rep. Poncho Nevarez (Ponco Villa) just emulating a fellow Demonrat, Preston Brooks.
Ramon is not in jail? or are reps immune from criminal interdiction while in session in the chamber?
It is a missed opportunity to round up a bunch of illegal alien troublemakers and ship them across the river.
...........couldn’t agree with you more!
Soap in the gas tank is orders of magnitude more appropriate.
