Who is Eliazar Cisneros? Texan man boasting about Joe Biden campaign ambush drove through BLM protest as well
Cisneros allegedly drove his black SUV during a Black Lives Matter protest in San Antonio after being identified in September
A week before the elections to elect president of the United States, presidential candidate and former vice president Joe Biden's campaign bus was surrounded by a parade of trucks with flags supportive of President Donald Trump on I-35 North between San Antonio and Austin. A Biden campaign official described the motorists' actions as an attempt to slow down the bus and run it off the road. The FBI then released a statement that its San Antonio, Texas branch was investigating the incident as Trump retweeted a video of the incident writing, "I LOVE TEXAS!"
A video of the incident showed one of the Trump supporters in a black SUV slamming into a white SUV that was escorting the Biden campaign bus. A Texan Trump supporter, Eliazar Cisneros, then claimed on social media that the black SUV was his car, writing, "That was me slamming that f****r. Hell yea [sic]." Cisneros also celebrated the fact that his vehicle made it out of the incident entirely unscathed. In subsequent comments on Facebook, Cisneros denied being responsible for what happened but admitted that he “reacted” to the vehicle, writing, “I reacted because he was running me off the road,” Cisneros asserted.
It has since emerged that Cisneros allegedly drove the same black SUV during a Black Lives Matter protest in San Antonio after being identified in September. A video from a weekend protest in San Antonio showed a driver going through a pack of protesters marching on a downtown road. According to KENS5, as demonstrators were in the street, briefly crossing a street near the truck driven by Cisneros, who identified himself to KENS5, he drove slowly into the crowd. Cisneros was heard telling the protesters to get out of the street, using an expletive at one point. The demonstrators responded, telling Cisneros to move his truck out of the street. "I didn't want to hurt anybody," Cisneros told KENS5. "You know, get off the street, get on the sidewalk and protest whatever you are protesting on the sidewalk. Stay safe."
Cisneros told the publication that he was not looking for the protesters, but was instead driving "aimlessly" showing support for Trump. According to online court documents, Cisneros was charged late last year for driving while intoxicated with a breath alcohol content of 0.15 or greater. He told the publication that the pending charges had not subjected his driver's license to any conditions that would prevent him from driving aimlessly downtown.
Videos of the Biden campaign bus incident depicted a more dangerous confrontation showing cars driving perilously close to the bus and at one point even running into a Biden staff member's car, leading to Democrats canceling three scheduled events in Texas. Trump also tweeted on the incident after the FBI confirmed they were investigating it, "In my opinion, these patriots did nothing wrong. Instead, the FBI & Justice should be investigating the terrorists, anarchists, and agitators of ANTIFA, who run around burning down our Democrat run cities and hurting our people".
