California Man Arrested After Trying To Stab Republican Congressional Candidate

Once again, a crazed leftist has resorted to violence and attacked a Republican politician. Will the liberal media take any responsibility for pushing this wingnut to violence? Will Maxine Waters or any of the other Democrats who compare the GOP to Nazis on a regular basis?

Authorities: California man arrested after trying to stab GOP House candidate

A California man was arrested after he allegedly tried to stab a Republican that is running for Congress with a switchblade.

Law enforcement responded to the possible knife attack around 3:45 p.m. on Sunday at the Castro Valley Fall Festival, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office said in a Tuesday statement.

Farzad Fazeli, 35, of Castro Valley, reportedly insulted the GOP and then approached “a political candidate” at his booth in an “aggressive manner,” the statement said.

The San Francisco Chronicle has identified the candidate as Republican Rudy Peters, a Navy veteran who is running against Rep. Eric Swalwell (D) in the state’s 15th District.

Fazeli allegedly pulled out a switchblade-style knife and tried to stab Peters, but the knife malfunctioned.

There was a “physical struggle” between the two men before Fazeli fled the scene.

He was arrested shortly after and was booked into the Santa Rita Jail on suspicion of felony assault, criminal threats, brandishing a weapon and possession of a switchblade knife.

This is not going to stop until someone on the left finally decides to act like an adult and call off their crazed supporters.
