Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said top Democrat officials are openly inciting riots in response to calls for violence by Maxine Waters. In a tweet Sunday, the Texas senator said Democrats are supporting far-left terror groups to tear apart the American society.
This came after Waters called on BLM militants in Minnesota to be “more confrontational” if former Officer Derek Chauvin were to be acquitted in the ongoing trial.
Cruz added, Democrat officials will do whatever it takes to maximize government power and control.
“Today’s Democrats are beholden to the far left voices that they made to the far left,” Cruz stated. “Today’s Democrats are about power. So if the rules stand in the way, the heck with the rules, ignore them.”
According to additional, reports, members of the Minnesota National Guard were targeted in a drive-by shooting just hours after Waters made her call to violence.
