Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas lambasted the Democratic Party, calling the members “criminals” and accusing the party of endorsing violence during a Fox News appearance Wednesday.
“Look, unfortunately, today’s Democratic Party is controlled by the radicals,” Cruz told Fox News host Sean Hannity. “They’re the party of criminals. They’re the party of violence. They’re the party of riots. They’re the party of threats and destruction.
“The radicals claim to be pro-women but they don’t want to help a mom who is pregnant with a child actually give birth to the child and deliver the child into this world, and so they’re going to fire bomb the clinic or the hospital she would go to,” Cruz said. “The terrifying thing, Sean, is this happens with the encouragement, with the acquiescence of the Democratic Party.”
Cruz lambasted President Biden for his silence on the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Last week, police arrested an armed California man near the justice’s home who said he wanted to kill Kavanaugh over potential rulings on gun rights and abortion.
Cruz also took aim at Attorney General Merrick Garland.
“Merrick Garland has become perhaps the most political attorney general in the history of this country,” Cruz said. “He’s willing to weaponize the Department of Justice and FBI to target parents as domestic terrorists, but he refuses to enforce the law against the people flagrantly violating the law.”
