Cruz compares anti-abortion protesters to the ‘offensive’ of the January 6 riots

Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) said on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” on Wednesday that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was offensive in his words and tone when he compared protesters outside the homes of several judges from the Supreme Court to rioters at the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021.

During an interview with Fox News, Cruz said, “What we see in these images is the latest manifestation of the extreme, the radicalism of the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party today believes in violence. They believe in mob rule, they believe in intimidation… These thugs have no place in the private residences of government officials. These Supreme Court justices are anyone else… On January 6, 2021, tens of thousands of people protested peacefully, and yet corporate media and Democrats slandered them with the coined term insurgent , and yet, in this case, they do not want to call back their henchmen.

Reid said, “They’re comparing people who hold candles outside one of those, you know, disenfranchising Supreme Court justices’ homes, to people who broke into the Capitol. , pooped on the floor and threatened to hang the Vice President of the United States by breaking glass and trying to kill United States Senators and Congressmen. Your thoughts?”

Murray said: “Joy, this is one of the most offensive things I’ve heard, and I’ve heard a lot of offensive things since the Supreme Court leaked that memo. And I’ll tell you, I was here on January 6th. My life was threatened, along with the lives of everyone else, by people who wanted to take control of the United States Senate and House by force. In this country, we use our voices and we use our votes to make our opinions known, and people have the right to do that.

She added: “But it’s nothing, nothing compared to January 6, and I find it offensive. I find his words offensive, I find his tone offensive and I find his message offensive. What we are talking about today, these are Republican politicians who are going to take over your choices in your life and tell you what they believe is more important than you and not only more important, but they are going to impose it on you. That, to me, is offensive. is to use legislative words and language and the intent to take away your rights – quite different from what happened on January 6th.
