(Pamela Cosel, Headline USA) Last seen picking a righteous fight on Sesame Street, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, had to indirectly give a lesson in law and court rulings to Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., after she grossly distorted the Supreme Court’s decision in favor of religious freedom.
The case centered on former high school football coach Joseph Kennedy, who was given the boot for praying on the 50-yard line after games. Omar twisted the facts, tweeting disinformation and outright lies.
“The Supreme Court just ruled that public school teachers can pressure students to join in prayer at public school events but can also retaliate against those that don’t join in. Religious freedom is dead in America.”
Cruz blasted Ilhan for grossly misstating facts so badly, that many probably wondered if she had even read the court’s majority opinion, was even familiar with the case, or was knowingly spreading lies.
Whatever the case, Cruz was having none of it.
Every word of this is false. https://t.co/FSiml1689j

Kennedy’s right to his expression of his personal faith is in line with the religious freedoms given to U.S. citizens in the First Amendment of the Constitution.
Omar’s claim that schools could retaliate against students is not only false, but isn’t even addressed in the court’s ruling, according to the Daily Wire.
Omar, instead, seems to be pushing her own agenda, evidenced by her tweet that lumped all issues of late into one tirade on gun violence prevention, healthcare, affordable prescription drugs, childcare and more, being pro-life “pro-forced birth.”
