Appearing for an interview on Fox News on Sunday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) accused President Joe Biden of “embracing mob violence” for not condemning pro-choice activists who are protesting outside the homes of conservative Supreme Court justices after a leaked ruling indicated that the high court will overturn federal abortion rights for women.
“I’ve got to say, this week, it was shameful that the White House refused to condemn violent protestors threatening the families of the Supreme Court,” Cruz told host Maria Bartiromo. “It is disgraceful and Joe Biden used to be chairman of the Judiciary Committee. Joe Biden knows it’s disgraceful! He’s literally threatening the lives of these justices by the mob they’re unleashing.”
“It’s the same thing we saw with Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, where the left embraced them,” he added. “And now they’re embracing mob violence to get their partisan outcome.”
It’s worth noting that Cruz declared after the 2020 elections that Republicans “will not go quietly into the night” and would not accept a peaceful transfer of power after Trump’s defeat. On January 6, 2021, Cruz also declared from the Senate floor that the certification of Joe Biden’s electoral victory had to be stopped. Moments later, a mob of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol to do just that.
