(Big League Politics) – Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) echoed Democrat talking points on the floor of the U.S. Senate today, calling heroic protesters for election integrity “terrorists” because of the mostly-peaceful protest that took place at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
“We are approaching a solemn anniversary this week. And it is an anniversary of a violent terrorist attack on the capitol,” he said.
“It is also worth asking … What could have prevented the breach of the Capitol? What could have prevented the riot getting as far as it did?” Cruz added, apparently arguing for an expansion of the federal police state in response to Jan. 6.
Cruz’s disgusting words can be seen here:

The game is over, folks.
Go home and get a life.

His comments sparked outrage from conservative commentators:
With all due respect to Cruz, it's difficult to see how "violent terrorist attack" is either a descriptively accurate or a politically astute thing to say about J6.
It is neither of those things. https://t.co/I6RrymBOCe

Not just embarrassing and cowardly and an act of obvious groveling, a total lie.
Cruz is mimicking Wray and Biden and Garland. He just gave Garland’s prosecutors more ammo in charging and sentencing motions.
Senate GOP is beyond worthless https://t.co/deT0J0YGtr

This follows up another recent betrayal by Cruz in which the self-serving snake rolled over far-left marxists to be appointed to the White House in order to slap sanctions on Russia at the behest of his special interest masters, as Big League Politics has reported:
“Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has officially folded to the Biden regime, removing holds on “radical” administration appointees and allowing far-left extremists to take control over the public policy of the United States.
And it didn’t even take 30 pieces of silver to get Cruz to fold. All it took was Biden and Democrats acquiescing to a sanctions vote against an oil pipeline thousands of miles away from the continental United States.
Cruz lifted over 30 of his holds during backroom negotiations with Senate Democrats last weekend. This is because Cruz cares more about punishing companies involved with the $11 billion natural gas pipeline between Russia and Germany than putting America First. As a result, dozens of individuals described by Cruz as far-left “radicals” are serving in the White House…
Big League Politics has reported on how Cruz intends to undercut President Donald Trump in 2024 and become the Republican presidential nominee.”
Cruz is providing oxygen to a federal witch hunt that is causing patriots to be treated like terrorists in the former land of the free, all to support his lofty presidential ambitions. This traitor is an enemy of the rule of law and a dangerous fifth column working to undermine the America First GOP from within.
