Ted Cruz Backtracks on ‘Terrorism’ Claim, Drawing Even More Criticism

The Texas Senator has had one weird week, that’s for sure.

Published

Ted Cruz just can’t seem to catch a break this week.

The Texas Senator drew the ire of the Republican Party just days ago, as he reminisced about the events of January 6th, 2021.  Cruz, in remarks about the Capitol riot, called the event a “terrorist attack” – the sort of terminology that the liberal left had been using to characterize the MAGA Movement as some unkempt, evil force in American politics.  Both Twitter and Tucker Carlson gave Cruz an earful over the characterization, and Cruz was soon appearing on the Fox News hosts’ program to clarify his remarks.

That didn’t go so well for him either.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, on Thursday said he made a “mistake” when, a day earlier, he described the Capitol riot as a “terrorist attack.”

In an interview, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson denounced Cruz for his comment and accused the GOP senator of telling a “lie.”

“The way I phrased things yesterday, it was sloppy and it was frankly dumb,” Cruz said in the interview that aired on the anniversary of the riot. Cruz said “as a result of my sloppy phrasing,” many people misunderstood what he meant when he called it a terrorist attack.

And then…

“What I was referring to are the limited number of people who engaged in violent attacks against police officers and I think you and I both agree that if you assault a police officer, you should go to jail. That’s who I was talking about,” he said. “I wasn’t saying that the thousands of peaceful protesters supporting Donald Trump are somehow terrorists. I wasn’t saying the millions of patriots across the country supporting President Trump are terrorists and that’s what a lot of people have misunderstood.”

Headlines in the mainstream media called Cruz’s flip-flop “groveling”, and some of the same conservative social media voices who tore him apart for the “terror” comments were quick to throw him right back under the bus on account of his willingness to completely renege on his statement under the pressure of the infotainment industry.

Coca-Cola Blasted By Billboards Over Support of ‘Genocide’ Olympics

This is BRUTAL!

Published

on

In just a few weeks’ time, much of the world will have their eyes on Beijing.  No, not on account of the misinformation that they spread about the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, nor their forceful takeover of Tibet.  We won’t be keeping a keen eye on the CCP over the Hong Kong hostage situation, or their repeated advances on the sovereign nation of Taiwan.

Nope.  We’ll all be watching young men and women cruising around on ice skates and skis, as opposed to having a serious conversation about the literal genocide that China has been involved in over the course of the last several years.

Now, international mega-corporation Coca-Cola is taking some serious heat over their continued support of what’s become known as “The Genocide Olympics”.

A conservative media watchdog group launched a billboard campaign Thursday outside Coca-Cola’s Atlanta headquarters, calling on the soft drink giant to explain its sponsorship of the upcoming Beijing Olympics in light of China‘s human rights abuses.

Accuracy in Media accused the company of hypocrisy with a billboard displaying the phrase: “Why does Coke support genocide?”

And it’s not as though Coke remains apolitical…not in the least.

The group notes that Coke condemned its home state of Georgia for implementing a new Republican-authored voting law and supported Major League Baseball’s decision to strip Atlanta of the All-Star Game because of the law — yet the multinational remains a major sponsor of the Beijing Games, “despite the fact that China is the greatest source of evil in our world.”

The billboards were soon making the rounds on social media.

As of this writing, there has been no official response from Coca-Cola.
