Republican Congressman Confronted by Extreme Anti-Immigrant Protesters, Threatens to Punch Them Out

This is one of those stories in which everybody involved sucks.

California Republican Rep. Stephen Knight was recently confronted by anti-immigrant protesters from the group “We The People Rising” at his office in Simi Valley, and the conversation got so heated that Knight threatened to fight one of the protesters.

“You told me you didn’t vote for amnesty and you did. I looked it up on the Internet. You lied to me,” a protester named Mike told Knight, before patting the congressman on the shoulder and walking away.

Knight, an Army veteran and longtime Los Angeles police officer, went over to the protester and confronted him.

“Mike, Mike,” Knight says. “Hey, if you touch me again, I’ll drop your ass. All right? Don’t, don’t touch me. Don’t, don’t touch me. Don’t touch me.”

“One more time, Mike,” he added.

Note that “We The People Rising” is not just an ordinary group; they have extensive connections to white supremacist organizations, and were involved in the ugly demonstrations in the California town of Murrieta last year, in which protesters screamed hateful insults at buses full of immigrant families. These people are so extreme they consider Rep. Knight, who is a far right conservative in every way, to be a “RINO.”

Here are some of Knight’s right wing bona fides: Steve Knight (Politician).

He supported Proposition 8, which was ruled unconstitutional by SCOTUS on June 26, 2013. Knight opposed bilingual education, and voted against the images of the Confederate flag being removed from state property. Knight has consistently voted against increasing the minimum wage, gun control, and water regulations for the city.

This is where the Republican Party has ended up in 2015; the agenda is increasingly being set by overt white supremacists and xenophobic extremists.
