Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas criticized Democrats during his Senate speech on Thursday, calling it “a calculated and cynical lie” that anyone other than the party Democrats are trying to smear the police.
“I got up today to discuss fact and fiction. Fox News reporter Peter Doocy recently asked White House press secretary Jen Psaki about a Biden administration official’s claim that Republicans misled police by failing to vote on the stimulus bill. worth of Biden’s wasted $1.9 trillion,” Cruz begins in Comments of the Senate.
“Psaki further emphasizes the idea that it is the Republicans, not the Democrats, who want to bring down the police. When a White House press secretary gives a press briefing you expect some twists and turns, you expect some gibberish and fabricating if the topic isn’t good for the administration. . But when Jen Psaki tried to blame Republicans for bringing down the police, things didn’t turn. It’s horse manure, it’s gas,” Cruz further.
Cruz went on to document examples of Democrats’ efforts to displease the police“For more than a year, Democrats and left-wing activists have repeatedly called for shaming the police, and many Democratic-led city councils and Democratic mayors have done the same, slashing and even slashing police budgets. “
The senator continued, “As a result of those reckless policies, we are seeing a deeply disturbing wave of violent crime in American cities across the country.
“The main White House spokesman blamed Republicans for taking down the police like an arsonist who showed up to a fire and blamed the firefighters. It’s like the Chinese Communist Party blames the US for the Wuhan virus. Like OJ saying he’ll help find the real killer. It’s absurd. Ridiculous. And the Democrats know it.”
Some examples of Cruz include “homicides in Los Angeles up 36 percent, homicides up more than 82 percent in Portland, and homicides in Minneapolis up nearly 72 percent last year. And by all appearances, these spikes in murders will continue throughout the year.
“Just a few weeks ago, Democrats protested that they could not learn from the catastrophic failures of other cities that slashed police and saw homicides skyrocket. What did they do in Oakland, California? The city council voted to cut more than $18 million from the police department. And Oakland has seen a 90% increase in homicides from last year. “
Should states pass laws to make the police illegal?
Yes: 100% (15 Votes)
No: 0% (0 Votes)
Cruz also sent a personal thank you to executive in his Senate speech.
“The fact of the matter is that Republicans proudly support the police, standing with the men and women in blue. While Democrats are cruel and defaming the brave men and women of law enforcement, I want to say thank you to every law enforcement officer in this country.”
The senator added, “At the federal, state and local levels, thank you for answering calls every day, wearing your uniform, wearing your badge, and risking your life to keep us safe.”

He continued, “This morning, all the law enforcement officers across this country woke up, they kissed their spouses goodbye, they kissed their children goodbye, and they went out to protect the community. ours, and they do so without knowing if they will come home. that night.
“We are proud to stand with the men and women of our police departments.”
Cruz concluded his remarks with these words: “When it comes to fact and fiction, the Biden White House is a cynical and calculated lie that none other than the Democrats are leading. a silly allegation to destroy and smear the police.
“Danger. Crime rates are skyrocketing. And it’s a particularly bad idea.”
