Video: Ted Cruz Apologises For Calling Jan 6th A ‘Terrorist Attack’; It Was “Sloppy” And “Dumb”

Tucker Carlson tells Cruz he’s “not buying it”

After encountering a huge backlash from conservatives for describing the events of January 6th 2021 as a “violent terrorist attack,” Senator Ted Cruz apologised and admitted that his language was “dumb” and “sloppy”.

Cruz appeared on Tucker Carlson’s evening show Thursday, apparently at his own request, and attempted to back track on what he said, claiming that he’d been referring to attacks on police.

Carlson said to Cruz “There are a lot of dumb people in the Congress. You are not one of them. I think you’re smarter than I am. And you never use words carelessly. And yet you called this a terror attack when by no definition was it a terror attack. That’s a lie. You told that lie on purpose, and I’m wondering why you did.”

Cruz responded “When you aired your episode last night, I sent you a text shortly thereafter and said listen, I would like to go on because the way I phrased things yesterday, it was sloppy, and it was frankly dumb.”

Carlson interjected, urging “Look, I’ve known you a long time. Since before you went to the Senate, you’re a Supreme court contender. You take words as seriously as any man who’s ever served in the Senate. And every word you repeated that phrase. I do not believe that you use that accidentally. I just don’t.”

Cruz again described his language as “a poor choice of words,” claiming that “as a result of my sloppy phrasing, it’s caused a lot of people to misunderstand what I meant.”

“Let me tell you what I meant,” The Senator continued, explaining “What I was referring to are the limited number of people who engaged in violent attacks against police officers. 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. And the reason the phrasing was sloppy is I have talked dozens if not hundreds of times, I’ve drawn a distinction. I wasn’t saying that the thousands of peaceful protestors supporting Donald Trump are somehow terrorists. I wasn’t saying the millions of patriots across the country, supporting president Trump are terrorists,” Cruz declared, adding “And that’s what a lot of people have misunderstood that.”

Carlson continued to say he doesn’t believe Cruz. “Hold on a second,” the host shot back, noting “What you just said doesn’t make sense. So if somebody assaults a cop, he should be charged and go to jail. I couldn’t agree more. We have said that for years, but that person’s still not a terrorist. How many people have been charged with terrorism on January 6?”

Carlson continued, “Like why’d you use that word? You’re playing into the other side’s characterization, that… allows them to define an entire population as foreiegn combatants. And you know that so why’d you do it?”

Cruz responded, “The reason I’ve used that word for a decade, I have referred to people who violently assault police officers as terrorists. I’ve done so over and over and over again. If you look at all the assaults we’ve seen across the country, I’ve called that terrorism over and over again.”

The Senator continued, “That being said, Tucker, I agree with you. It was a mistake to say that yesterday. And the reason is what you just said, which is we’ve now had a year of Democrats in the media, twisting words, and trying to say that all of us are terrorists trying to say you’re a terrorist, I’m a terrorist.”

“And so look, I don’t like people who assault cops and, and, and I stand up and defend cops,” Cruz carried on, adding “The reason I use that word is that’s the word I’ve always used for people that violently attack cops. But in this context, I get why people were angry because we’ve had a year of the corrupt corporate media and Democrats claiming anyone who objected to the election fraud.”

“I guess I just don’t believe you,” Carlson said. “And I mean that with respect because I have such respect for your acuity and your precision.”

Cruz also tweeted the interview out, saying his words were dumb:

    Former White House Physician Demands Biden Take Cognitive Test After Weird Presser Breakdown

    “Something is WRONG with him. This man IS NOT qualified to be President”

    The former White House physician Ronny Jackson reacted to Joe Biden displaying more brain freeze during his second press conference in office Wednesday, demanding that the president immediately undergo a cognitive test.

    Biden essentially ignored a question from a reporter about why so many Americans believe he is in cognitive decline, replying “I have no idea.”

    Just minutes after that Biden displayed more bizarre brain freeze and painful loss of his train of thought.

    That display prompted Jackson, the former physician for presidents Obama and Trump, to take to social media:

    Jackson has repeatedly called for Biden to undergo an exam following regular concerning displays.

    The doctor recently asserted that that the reason Biden has avoided cognitive exams is because he would have “failed miserably,” and his team “didn’t do it because they know, if they do it, you don’t ask questions that you don’t want the answers to.”

    US Army Guerrilla Warfare Exercise to Target “Freedom Fighters”

    Troops to battle against fictional ‘Pineland resistance movement’.

    Published

    on

    The US Army is set to conduct a “guerrilla warfare exercise” later this month in North Carolina where troops will battle against “freedom fighters.”

    Yes, really.

    The two week “unconventional warfare exercise” will take from from Jan. 22-Feb. 4 on privately owned land in a remote location which remains unknown.

    “Called Robin Sage, the exercise serves as a final test for Special Forces Qualification Course training and it places candidates in a politically unstable country known as Pineland,” reports the Charlotte Observer.

    “These military members act as realistic opposing forces and guerrilla freedom fighters, also known as Pineland resistance movement,” said the the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center.

    Information about the exercise was provided to the media in a bid to avoid civilians confusing the drills with actual terrorist attacks or warfare, which has happened before.

    “It will be realistic enough to include the sounds of gunfire (blanks) and flares,” said the center.

    As Chris Menahan notes, a similar Robin Sage exercise in 2019 showed resistance fighters displaying a flag that says “liberty.”

    “They could tell these soldiers they’re battling the Chinese, Russians, Iranians, North Koreans or other foreign enemies but instead they have them training to kill “freedom fighters” with “Liberty” flags,” writes Menahan.

    The exercise will do little to dampen concerns that the Biden administration is launching a de facto ‘domestic war on terror’ targeting patriots and Trump supporters.

    Following the January 6 Capitol riot, Democrats ludicrously compared the events to September 11 in an attempt to justify using federal resources that would normally be focused on actual terrorists against American conservatives.

    Earlier this month, the Justice Department created a new “specialized unit focused on domestic terrorism” in response to an “elevated” threat from violent extremists in the United States.

    However, polls show that Americans are split on who represents the biggest threat, particularly after the Waukesha attack, its subsequent cover up, in addition to the fact that left-wing extremists spent much of 2020 rioting and burning down American cities.

    A recent Schoen Cooperman Research survey found that voters are split on domestic extremism, with 23 per cent naming left-wing extremism and 21 per cent naming right-wing extremism as the greater concern.

    Following the January 6 incident, Army General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he wanted to understand “white rage,” although an interest in understanding “black rage” after a sustained period of violent mayhem caused by Black Lives Matter protesters wasn’t seemingly of any importance.

    The Decay of America

    A warning from Russia.

    Published

    on

    A dire warning from Russia about the role demographics could play in the decay of America.

    Vladimir Zhirinovsky, leader of the LDPR party, sensationally claims that inter-ethnic conflict in the United States will lead to white Americans fleeing to Canada, Australia, and even Siberia.

    Zhirinovsky says the US is on the same crumbling path towards collapse that the former USSR stumbled upon decades ago.
