Ted Cruz Calls J6 a ‘Violent Terrorist Attack’ and He’s ‘Grateful’ for Capitol Police’s ‘Bravery’

'The minute you call it a “violent terrorist attack on the capitol,” you lose most of your standing when complaining about the DOJ, Dems and Media... '

At a hearing about January 6th, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, described the mass-trespassing event as a “violent terrorist attack on the Capitol,” though the Justice Department has not filed insurrection or terrorism charges against the political prisoners.

Cruz ignored the fact that the Justice Department has not filed charges beyond trespassing, obstructing Congress, and assaulting the police.

Cruz praised the Capitol Police, but he did not mention that officer Michael Byrd shot and killed 12-year Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed rioter who posed no threat to his safety.

“We saw the men and women of law enforcement demonstrate incredible courage, incredible bravery, risked their lives to defend the men and women who serve in this Capitol,” Cruz said. “We are grateful for that courage. We appreciate the selfless sacrifice of the men and women who keep us safe.”

Cruz echoed FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland, whose rhetoric justifies the abuse of the J6 political prisoners.

Garland called January 6th an “unprecedented attack on our democracy,” CNN reported.

Wray described the mostly peaceful protesters as “violent extremists,” according to the FBI.

Cruz has not expressed curiosity about the FBI’s well-documented effort to stoke violence at the Capitol and the undercover agents who directed demonstrators into the Capitol.

He has criticized Garland and Wray for targeting parents and other partisan policies, yet he has undercut his own argument by labeling the mostly peaceful Trump supporters as terrorists.
