Watch: Eric Cantor Booed By Tea Party Activists
breitbart.com ^ | 5/13/14 | Michael Patrick Leahy

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor faced a raucous crowd Saturday, including loud boos and heckles from Tea Party activists presumably supporting his long-shot primary opponent, professor Dave Brat.

Cantor's speech occured while the votes were being counted in Tea Party-backed Fred Gruber's 685 to 636 vote victory over Linwood Cobb for the important job of district chairman of the 7th Congressional District Republican Committee.

Brat went first, slamming Cantor for refusing a debate and running negative ads that misrepresented his positions.

Former Virginia U.S. Senate candidate Jamie Radtke, who lost the 2012 Republican primary to George Allen, attended the event and said it was "visibly evident" that when Cantor took the stage immediately after Brat he was "seething mad."

"When I sit here and I listen to Mr. Brat speak, I hear the inaccuracies," Cantor began, as many in the crowd started booing.

"My family is here..." Cantor started again, as the booing increased in volume and energy.

"Listen," Cantor lectured the crowd, "we are a country about free speech, so decency is also a part of this," Cantor said to a chorus of more booing, mixed with cheers from some of his supporters.

"I hear the inaccuracies," Cantor continued, "my wife and two of my kids are here, my mother and mother-in-law are here, they here the falsehoods, but of course I am tempted to fight fire with fire, but instead let me just leave you with some thoughts."

He’s got this annoying sissy-boy voice.

Like the spoiled rich kid on the Little Rascals.

“Stand up and fight, and stop talking”

Yep, this is exactly whey you’re leaning on your crony capitalists for money when you should easily win. We’re sick of you passing meaningless bills then giving the WH everything they want.

History will remember you as a spineless Tory, but they will be the best you can hope for. Benedict Arnold is more accurate. No, at least Benedict Arnold had the guts to wear his new colors.

Cantor is used to being surrounded by aids, lobbyists, and yes-men. No doubt he operates under the impression that his constituents worship, or at least love, him.

Finding out how the hoi polloi really feel about him when he has to rub elbows with them must come as a complete shock to this jerk.

I live n Cantor’s district. He’s arrogant and out of touch. He never holds town hall meetings - never. He spends lots of time skimming his $500 loafers across the expensive carpets on K Street. He has poor constituent services and his staff are rude.

The ONLY thing that Eric Cantor cares about is Eric Cantor.
