Senator Ted Cruz (TX-R) spoke to the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday during a hearing on Domestic Terrorism and White Supremacy and highlighted just how hypocritical his Democratic colleagues have acted throughout the recent gun debate that is currently being discussed on Capitol Hill.
While most Democrats who spoke on Tuesday were quick to attack 2A and the Republican Party, while stereotyping the attacks to white people only, Senator Cruz put them all in their place by reminding them which Political Party was responsible for the hate in the first place as well as listing all the black related hate crimes that have occurred recently.
CRUZ: When it comes to white supremacy, when it comes to vicious hate groups like the klan or the nazi party, in my view, there are equivocally hateful, bigoted, racist morons who should be denounced and despised, but I do think my colleagues on the Democratic side of the aisle try very hard to erase the history of the klan – that it was formed by elected democrats – that its leadership was almost entirely elected democrats – that the authors of the jim crow laws were, without exception, elected democrats. I also think today’s congressional democrats try to use the charge of white supremacy, which is undoubtedly evil, bigoted and wrong, and weaponized by their own party. They tried to use that as a proxy for attacking a political party they disagree with, and they do so by diminishing anti-Jewish violence, anti-Asian violence, violence directed at white people, and violence directed at police.

Cruz then went on to read out loud a list of acts of violence that were not committed by white supremacists.
“The Brooklyn subway shooter was a known black supremacist who called for racial violence. The Waukesha attacker, who murdered six people driving an SUV into a Christmas parade was a viciously left-wing black nationalist bigot. 2016, another black nationalist gunman gunned down five police officers in Dallas. I was there with President Obama at the funeral for those police officers. He did so on explicitly racial grounds. In 2019, two antisemitic domestic terrorists gunned down four people in a kosher grocery store. San Francisco in the past year has seen a 75% increase in anti-Asian violence. anti-Jewish hate crimes in new york city are up 148% in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2021. And then, of course, we have the violence of the Antifa riots and the black lives matter riots that racked this country. As stores were looted, police cars were firebombed, people were assaulted, people were murdered – my colleagues on the Democratic side of the aisle sought to excuse, sought to apologize for, even went so far as to raise money to bail out of jail the violent rioters committing these acts of violence.”
The Senate Judicial Committee was left speechless after Cruz slammed Democrats for their polarization of the recent Buffalo and Uvalde massacres that the Left continues to use as a political tool to further their radical agenda heading into the November midterms.
