Ted Cruz Levels Mazie Hirono For Refusal To Denounce Antifa


Tensions flared at a Senate hearing on Antifa when Democrat Mazie Hirono walked out of the room declaring she couldn’t sit through Sen. Ted Cruz’s rhetorical speeches any longer.

Sen. Ted Cruz blasted Democrats for not condemning Antifa more directly for the violence and destruction that has taken hold in certain U.S. cities in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

But Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said Ted Cruz just wasn’t listening during the more than three-hour hearing when Democrats said violence is not acceptable.

“Sometimes I don’t think you listen,” Mazie Hirono told Ted Cruz at the Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing as he finished up with a nearly 10-minute speech. “So, how many times have I had to say that we all should be denouncing violent extremists of every stripe.”

“Does that include Antifa?” said Ted Cruz, who was chairing the hearing.

“I have the time,” Mazie Hirono shot back.

“…I hope this is the end of this hearing, Mr. Chairman, and that we don’t have to listen to any more of your rhetorical speeches,” Mazie Hirono concluded. “Thank you very much. I’m leaving.”

Mazie Hirono then packed up to leave the hearing before Cruz adjourned it.

“Well I appreciate the, as always, kind of uplifting words of Senator Hirono,” Ted Cruz said. “And I would also note that throughout her remarks she still did not say a negative word about Antifa nor has any Democrat here.”

He urged her again to denounce the leftist extremist group. “You’re welcome to say something negative about Antifa right now,” Ted Cruz said to his departing colleague.

“I think that I’ve covered the subject quite well,” Mazie Hirono replied in barely audible remarks before exiting the room.

“Okay, she declined to speak, so that is the position of the Democratic Party,” Ted Cruz said.
