According to a report from CBS Miami, Amanda Kondrat’yev, the woman who threw a drink at Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, pled guilty on Thursday, August 1, 2019.
This incident took place on June 1, 2019 after Gaetz held a town hall event at the Brew Ha Ha restaurant in Pensacola, Florida. A video clip on Twitter shows Kondrat’yev, a one-time Democratic challenger of Gaetz, throwing a drink at him.
Amanda Kondrat’yev pleaded guilty to the charges and now faces up to one year in jail.
After this attack, police quickly arrested Kondrat’yev and later released her on a $1,000 bond. In a recent interview, Gaetz said that he would be taking legal action against Kondrat’yev.
Gaetz told Fox News Channel’s Hannity, “I had a circumstance just a few weeks ago where someone threw a drink at me leaving a town hall meeting. I am going to press charges.”
He added, “If there are no consequences laid out, then maybe it’s me getting hit with a drink one time, but what if it’s a member of my staff and what if instead of a drink it’s acid or urine? I think it’s really important to send a message that we as conservatives have a right to our views — just like anybody else.”
This incident transpired around the time of the infamous “milkshake” attacks on pro-Brexit candidates, which included Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage.
Gaetz has been one of the fiercest defends of President Trump’s America First agenda.
Gaetz has also defended the President from the D.C. establishment’s Russia collusion witch-hunt against him.
For that reason, Gaetz will earn a lot of enemies along his way.
Nevertheless, this shows he’s doing something right.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
