Ted Cruz Warns That ‘There is a Real Risk of Violence’ With Maxine Waters and Other Dems ‘Effectively Encouraging’ It
Cruz’s remarks came after co-anchor Sandra Smith played a clip of Waters outside of the Supreme Court today following the abortion ruling.
“I think there is a real risk of violence.”
“That’s almost exactly what Maxine Waters said there. And I got to say, it’s really cynical to see Democrats effectively condoning violence.”
“I call upon Merrick Garland, the attorney general, to be on watch, to be on watch, to stop any violence today, not to allow radicals who want to employ mob violence, to threaten, to threaten the Supreme Court, to threaten churches, to threaten pro-life pregnancy centers, to enforce the rule of law.”
Cruz also said it was a moment to “pause” and for “incredible celebration” as he gave praise to pro-life activists for their efforts to reverse the original ruling.
Multiple Democrats have condoned violence. It’s wrong and it’s cynical.

In a tweet, Hawley declared, “DOJ needs to announce a zero tolerance policy for violence right now.”
“They’ve left radical leftists run wild – threatening the Justices, burning pregnancy care centers,” Hawley explained.
Hawley insisted, “No more. Protests are constitutionally protected but violence is not. DOJ must put a stop to it immediately.”
