Skip to comments.Chaos erupts at Cantor election night headquarters after his departure
Posted on 06/10/2014 7:37:03 PM PDT by ColdOne
Then it got really rambunctious. In the room of downcast Cantor allies, a new energy suddenly erupted but not the kind they wanted 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 protestors entrance into the ballroom, and pushing and shoving ensued. And before they reached the microphone, one Cantor supporter threw his glass of wine onto a female protestor. She swore at him in return.

The activists wasted their energy since Cantor lost.
Because he sucks
Bad timing. It was all set up to come in after he won to show the need for him to support amnesty. Now it reinforces the notion of why he lost to the entire rino world.
Time to lower the cone of silence Chief.
” one Cantor supporter threw his glass of wine onto a female protestor”
“But we were promised,” they shouted.
I’m guessing you’re right.
Delicious. Proud of my VA pals, tonight - that’s for sure! :)
All bought and payed for by Obama and his democrat minions.
It’s all part of the Obama\democrat con job being played on the American people. I pray to God we’re not falling for it.
LOL- were they already there waiting to let Cantor cave in to them???
Why the dust-up with the Cantor folks? I thought these people were “natural Republican voters.”
no kidding. They had their orders and they were going to follow them
What kind of flag are they waving? Mexican? Red commie flag?
From the sounds of it the Cantor supporters at the event behave like liberals. They loved the illegals until they were no longer useful and then turn on them immediately. “Get a job”?
Now, I must admit to being divorced from politics, having not voted since 1992.
So in truth I am an outsider.
And it comes as no surprise to anyone that every time I heard Cantors name and a description of what he was doing, I was thinking “what a democrat!”
It most definitely reinforces the notion of why he lost!
Brat made it about Cantor’s Amnesty and now that Cantor has lost his supporters are screaming “What do we want? Immigration reform! When do we want it? Now!”
This was ENTIRELY about Amnesty. Note well RINOs.

Numerous links yet no answers to your simple question, therefore you have your answer.

Sour wine from sour grapes?
The refugee dump on the border was the last straw and I think the Virginia results are just the beginning. I think the American people, of all backgrounds, are fed up with illegal immigration. Those politicians who seek reinforced border protection and a no vote on amnesty will be rewarded. Those who seek to compromise on this issue and give in to the left. Well, take a look at what just happened to the majority leader of the house of representatives. Oh, what a glorious night this is. Sure, there is so much more work to do, and there’s no guarantee that other Republicans will follow suit, but one of the biggest proponents of amnesty just bit the dust. We all know the GOPe is quaking in their boots as we speak. Take a good look at what happened tonight Mr. Boehner. You too Mr. McConnell. You are on notice now by a revitalized conservative movement in the GOP.
Immediately after Cantor exited the room, a group of political demonstrators stormed in, waving a flag and shouting. Several skirmishes occurred during the uproar. The group, CASA De Virginia, knocked the glasses off of a Cantor supporters face. Plates of food were pushed and protesters were also pushed around; one Cantor supporter was put in a choke hold. At this time it doesnt seem as though any arrests were made.
They came in shouting and waving a large flag, along with a red shirt printed with the name CASA De Virginia.
The group defines itself as a community organization that protects civil rights, according to their Twitter page.
That's why he slinked away like a weasel before they got there.
Bought and paid protesters did not understand Cantor lost. Funny !!
Lots of libs and Democrats are pissed at open borders. Unfortunately not pissed enough to vote against the Democrat candidates...but enough to sit out elections. Hopefully
What a perfect backdrop for the nearly-simultaneous White House comment that immigration issues had nothing to do with Cantor's loss.

This is why Eric Cantor lost, and America will lose if the pro-amnesty politicians in Washington succeed. We are under invasion on our southern border and the national government who went to the Supreme Court to assert their power is failing us.
Thank you Virginia for Mr. Brat!
WELL SAID !
Did he say macaca?
No, they want him to vote amnesty on the way out and to lead the charge.
“Burn their town and salt their fields.”
um...but he don’t leave for awhile....
Everyone is scrambling to update their resumes and find a seat on the lifeboat. Welcome to Dumpsville.
And pour silver down their lying throats.
At this point I'd guess that getting Cantor to push immigration "reform" in a lame-duck status pretty much went down the drain when the first punch was thrown. It's dead, Jim.
That probably means he didn't encourage his supporters to support Brat also.
No class. Top to bottom.
If you don’t vote you have no right to complain.
It’s RINO season! Yay!

Oh my, was it a Chablis?
On Fox they are saying the radio host are strongly responsible for the loss.
I say, No, it was Drudge.
Drudge has had up pictures every day for quite a few days now of the invasion over the Southern border. It’s been very upsetting, the planned transforming of the US into a 3rd world country by the Obama admin, and conservatives not only don’t see the Republicans throwing themselves into stopping that, but Cantor was one of the faces of encouraging it.
That was why he lost.
I saw it as an observation.
I hope all kinds of wigs and bras were left on the floor.
That would have been fun to watch. And to deport.
Right. Stay classy as the country is overrun by low iq cretins demanding hand outs from hard working citizens.
The time for staying classy is way past over.
Time to retake this country by whatever means necessary.
“It most definitely reinforces the notion of why he lost!”
I just watched Cantor’s concession speech. It was among the worst I’ve ever seen. He had no clue his defeat could happen, he sounded drunk and looked like a deer in the headlights.
Yup, that’s been our Republican leadership.
