Sen Cruz Gets Trapped By Heckler At Texas Convention
Alex Stein is a prolific internet troll and he managed to get access to Sen Ted Cruz at the Texas State Republican Convention Sunday. “Remember when Trump made fun of your wife? Why do you become best friends with Trump after he makes fun of you and your wife?” Stein smuggly asked.
“I do love America, see, you don’t,” Stein continued. “You care more about the border between Ukraine and Russia than you do about the border between Texas and Mexico. Why is that?” (RELATED: Owner Of Restaurant Where Cruz Was Heckled Says Staff Has Been Threatened)
“You’re a globalist! Hey Teddy, you’re a globalist!” he said as staffers pulled Stein away from the senator. “You’re a globalist Ted, you know that, and that’s why you’re a coward and a liar and you know that and I know that … When people were freezing and dying, you were in Cancun, Mexico, you remember that? You remember when you were at the all-inclusive buffet while people were freezing? You remember that, Ted?”
In January of 2021 much of Texas experienced major power outages during a historic freeze. Sen Cruz was blasted for fleeing the state for Cancun Mexico. He later explained that he was just trying to be "a good dad':
“This has been an infuriating week for Texans. The greatest state in the greatest country in the world has been without power. We have food lines, gas lines, and people sleeping at the neighbors’ houses,” Cruz said in a 2021 statement. “Our homes are freezing and our lights are out. Like millions of Texans, our family lost heat and power too.”
“With school canceled for the week, our girls asked to take a trip with friends,” he continued. “Wanting to be a good dad, I flew down with them last night and am flying back this afternoon.”

Stein is reportedly a conservative who apparently can't stand Cruz. His social media notes that he's a contributor for TheBlaze but I am not familiar with his work. I did see some outlets claim that he's a member of the Proud Boys, but as far as I can tell, Stein denies any association with the group.
