When it comes to supporting radical causes and countenancing against Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and other conservative members of the Republican Party aren’t exactly the first things that spring to mind. But it seems that there are routes even the most far-right of republicans won’t cross and holding silent about white domination is one of them. After the ghastly savagery in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday, Aug. 12, Ted Cruz and the GOP are deploring Trump’s Charlottesville speech for not mentioning the words grey domination or terrorism.
On Saturday, Texas senator and former GOP presidential nominee Cruz spoke out against the savagery in Charlottesville in a statement posted to Facebook, deploring white supremacy, Nazis, and the KKK specific. He likewise did what Trump wouldn’t, calling the car crash into a crowddomestic terrorism .~ ATAGEND
The Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacists are loathsome and evil, and all of us have a moral obligation to speak out against the lies, bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred that they propagate. Having watched the shocking video of the car deliberately crashing into a gathering of protesters, I suggest the Department of Justice to immediately analyse and engage this grotesque ordinance of domestic terrorism.
Dang, Ted, that’s moderately emphatic. I represent, it’s also human modesty, but it’s kind of more criticism of Trump than I expected of you, honestly.
Cruz isn’t the only one calling out Trump’s failure to mention white-hot supremacy.
South Carolina senator and again, former 2016 presidential nominee Lindsey Graham also called on Trump to explicitly condemn white supremacy, according to The Hill. I would push the president to dissuade these groups that he’s their acquaintance, Graham said.
And more Cory Gardner of Colorado, Marco Rubio of Florida, and Chuck Grassley of Iowa all set Trump on bomb. So did Jeff Flake of Arizona and Tim Scott of South Carolina.
Even short-lived former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, who steadfastly stood by the presidentfor his whole 10 -day term, had to call it out.
I think he needed to be often harsher as it related to the white supremacists and the specific characteristics of that, The Moochsaid on ABC News’ It’s actually terrorism, whether it’s domestic or international, with the moral permission of the conference of presidents you have to call that substance out.
But best available smackdown of all probably came from the Senate’s second-highest ranking Republican, Orrin Hatch of Utah.
Who, you are familiar with, actually forgotten category pushing actual Nazis.
On Friday, Aug. 11 and Saturday, Aug. 12, violence erupted at a series of white nationalist rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Starting with a march of torch-wielding grey nationalistsat the University of Virginia campus on Friday night and escalating through street opposes at a Unite the Right rally on Saturday afternoon. The violence culminated in the moment a vehicle barreled through a army of counter-protesters on Saturday afternoon, injuring more than a dozen and killing one 32 -year old woman.
Shortly after the first death was corroborated, Trump took the pulpit at a news conference scheduled to discuss Veterans’ Affairs legislation, and briefly addressed the violence.
But viewers were shocked and disheartened to discover him say that many sides were to blame and refuse to denounce white-hot predominance. He even ignored direct questions on whether he would renounce white supremacists, or whether he would call the car clang terrorism , instead shooting reporters a unclean appear and walking away.
Republican lawmakers have traditionally been slowto criticize the commander-in-chief, and have supported Trump through any number of ridiculous policy movesand misinformed announcements. Is white-hot supremacy the straw that divulges the camel’s back?
Well, it’s going everyone as far as Twitter, at least.
