As tension continues to rise between Republicans and Democrats, Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) has unleashed on Democratic lawmakers, slamming the Democratic House leadership.
As a guest on the Mark Levin Show this week, the Texas Senator commented that “Nancy Pelosi knows that she’s deliberately tried to inflame racial tensions with lies.” He added that “arrests are not kidnapping. They’re lawful arrests.”
Cruz expressed that “violent ANTIFA protesters who are assaulting people who are firebombing cars, who are murdering police officers, they are not simple, peaceful protesters.”
In response to these acts, the Texas Republican noted that he is introducing legislation “that allows anyone whose property is damaged or who is personally victimized by violence of a terrorist or rioter to have a federal cause of action and seek treble damages.” He explained that the legislation includes “treble damages against any state and local officer who deliberately withholds law enforcement. Who allows a lawless autonomous zone to be created, as we’re seeing across the country. Who defies the law and decides your civil rights, your right to life and liberty are going to be sacrificed on the altar of politically correct ‘wokeness.’”
Ultimately, Cruz concluded that “what we’re seeing is lawless, it’s dangerous, and it’s tearing at the very foundations of America.”
As police departments continue to be disbanded across the United States, the Texas Senator believes this is part of a communist prerogative that is sweeping across the nation.
In a recent advertisement, Senator Cruz doubled down on his commitment to ensure that this does not continue.
“This is not about social justice. This is not about equality,” he says. Simply put, he believes that the people involved in this movement “hate America.”
