Cruz Says Calling January 6 a ‘Violent terrorist attack’ Was a ‘Mistake’

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has been considered a “friendly guest” on Tucker Carlson.

Cruz, however, found himself on the wrong end of a Tucker Carlson segment for characterizing the January 6 rioters as terrorists.

After Carlson went after Cruz, the Senator reached out to explain.

The question is if you buy his explanation or not.

Helping the Other Side

When Carlson did his segment, he flat-out stated that Cruz does not make mistakes like this.

He is a very purposeful person, so when Cruz used the words “domestic terrorists,” it fed right into the Democrat narrative, which is why Carlson called Cruz out.

Cruz went on to the show to try to explain.

Cruz then stated that he has characterized anyone who has gone after police as domestic terrorists for years.

He continued that he was ONLY talking about the people who went after cops, not the thousands of other people who attended the rally.

Even so, Carlson still hit Cruz back for even feeding the narrative at all…

What do you think?

Do you buy Cruz’s excuse or do you think he is just spinning now to get himself out of trouble with conservatives upset at his phrasing?

  1. anytime you see these two , liars team , you wonder

    no clue joe and the team of morons are leading thier team of fools the hell and damnation

    deception at best

    crime scene

    Trump was inocent , the liars team was the cause , wake up , see , research, find truth

    no media lies

    1. Sorry, I don’t buy his explaination at all. He said it he should own it, seems like some Dems may have gotten to him. Ted Cruz doesn’t do things without thinking on it real hard.

    1. I quit working at Shoprite and now I make $65-85 per/h. How? I’m working online! My work didn’t exactly make me happy so I decided to take a chance on something new… after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn’t be happier. Here’s what I do…>> http://www.MoneyStar1.com

  2. Unfortunate use of words that have been seized on by democrats to further divide the country. I don’t know what Cruz was thinking, but he sure did step in it.

      1. The media spins their web of lies to suit themselves and self-serving radical Democrats/RINO’s. Anyone who tries to destroy America is a domestic terrorists. Remember Timothy McVey and the Oklahoma bombing!!! That is a domestic terrorists. I will stick with Ted Cruz because I feel he has America’s best interest. People need to stop making something out of nothing including media.

  3. I think Cruz means well, but these sick Democrats will seize on anything they can to cause more problems.

  4. I trust Cruz over all Democrat politicians. Of course he should have been more clear during his testimony. I’m glad tucker gave him the opportunity to clarify his statements.

  5. Cruz looked like he got caught with his hand in the cookie jar.
    Truly, Tucker had it right and Cruz did a justification spin on his huge error in saying what he said!
    Cruz dramatically used words of “solemn” and “domestic terrorists” and body language in a polarized political congressional setting against Trump and all conservative Patriots and I could not believe my eyes and ears when I saw it! He knew where he was; he knew what he said!
    Tucker asked what his purpose was since he always chooses his words wisely and purposefully.
    I really like Cruz. Yet, now I have thoughts of being deceived by another politician and I never thought Cruz was “just another politician.” So disappointed!
    NO I DID NOT ACCEPT CRUZ’S JUSTIFICATION TYPE SPIN FROM CRUZ.
    I really feel betrayed!

    1. I agree with everything you said. I don’t know if I believe Cruz now. Used to feel more more confident about him but now not so sure???

    2. Ted Cruz knew he was aiding and abetting the Demonrat ENEMY. I wholeheartedly believe Ted saw this as his way to get back at Trump for what he said about Cruz’s wife during the 2020 Republicrat primaries.

  6. I so wish these politicians would stop their sandbox fighting and start doing some positive work for America. We have many problems and some can be fixed quite easily if they would stop cry baby fighting and actually work in their jobs.

    1. Amen. If you have been in Congress for more than a few years. Say two or three terms. Then get out. We do not need people to make a life time project of being in Congress. It was never meant as a life time job. Read the Bill of Rights and the Constitution and see what it says. Our Fore Fathers were pretty darn smart. They knew that there would come a time when Congress made it a life time job. Those that have been in there 40 years need to be removed by hand if necessary. We are sick and tired of watching our Tax Money go to some other Foreign Country. For any reason what so ever. Its time to put Term limits on Congress. There is a Term Limit on the President and there should be one on Congress. I don’t care if you have a pet project or anything of the kind stop voting the turds Seat Warmers back in there. Do not vote for the Seat Warming piece of crap back in there.

      1. The framers of the Constitution left it up to the people to make sure that the dead weight was removed. Unfortunately there are too many people that are too lazy or do not care to investigate what our congressmen are doing. We the people are not taking our jobs seriously! We really should not need term limits and that should be up to the people. If these elections ever get straightened out we may find it easier to remove some of these loafers from office. We have allowed Congress to gain more power than the Framers gave them and they are making themselves rich and untouchable! Look at Pelosi, concealing evidence about a shooting death at the capital and claiming it is none of the people’s business. We need to take back our government and hold all of them accountable for their actions and abuse of their oath to Protect and Serve the Constitution of the United States of America!!!

  7. The only domestic terrorist I know of in America, carry the names of the BLM, Antifa, KKK and White Supremist. Of course, you could add the democRAT party.

  8. Words have specific meanings. Politicians of all people should be careful in the process of word games. Someone disagrees with political motives, now they are racist. People storm the capitol and now they are terrorists? Yet, BLM, Antifa can burn entire city blocks like Lake Street in Minneapolis, including a Police precinct and not even be charged. How many of these people that stormed the capitol harmed anyone? What did they blow up? Did they burn any of the capitol chambers? How many democrats were involved with this alleged insurrection? Kazakhstan is having an insurrection. Protesters and Police are being killed there. Yet, media labels that as unrest

  9. TED CRUZ IS BEGING TO ASTING LIKE MITT ROMNEY THE SHAMELESS HE GOAT, SOMETIMES CRUZ ACT LIKE A DEMOCRAT AND OTHER TIMES HE HE BELIEVE HE IS A REPUBLICAN; WOLVES IN SHEEP CLOTHING.

  10. Cruise at one time was a traitor to trump. He’s showing his true colors. Now he’s trying to back out. People usually say what they mean.

  11. Used to trust what he said but now i won’t and he has lost and he can go be with the democraps along with good ole Mitch

    1. Remember the Oklahoma bombing. That was domestic terrorism. Ted Cruz supports American values and the Constitution. I will support Ted Cruz although I can’t vote for him as I live in another state.

  12. So disappointing. I often use the wrong words but never terrorist for Jan 6. People were upset greatly and had no where to turn but demonstrate at the capital. Yes it got out of hand but I wonder if the people that started the trouble were not domestic terrorists, fanning the unrest. We may never know, I bet they were not charged. Cruz will now always be judged by this, he walked into it.

    1. In my opinion, the Jan 6 incident was about the American citizens rebelling against a tyrant government that has overstepped their bounds within the US Constitution. I would like for these radical Democrats to start doing some work for the American citizens vs illegals and self-service politicians. American’s have started to rebel against mandates and will continue to do so. Mandates are unconstitutional as it infringes on our personal lives and decisions. If things don’t change, I do foresee a civil war/rebellion.

  13. I. Want to thank Mr. Carlson for giving Senator Cruz an opportunity to publicly acknowledge his mistake.
    2. More so, I appreciate Senator Cruz’s public acknowledgement of his mistake.
    I think both responded in such a manner that will allow them both to work hard together to bring about a more unified U.S. of A in the very near future.
    Everyone makes mistakes, Mr. Tucker. I suspect you have, as well .
    You both are very exemplary, honest, & intelligent in what you do in life. If you both haven’t done so already, let me suggest that the next time you attend church, you ask God for His guidance in this concern. May He continue to guide both of you, as you do His bidding in the work that you do to futher His kingdom… May He also continue to bless the both of you & your families…
    He loves you both, very much…

  14. I AGEREE WITH TED ,BUT THE PROTEST WAS EDGE ON BY DEMOCRATS , WHAT ABOUT THE REAL TERRIOST,THE ONE IN MIN BURN AND KILL ROB AND THE DEMOCRATS HAIL THEM AS HEROS AND INNOCENCE PEOPLE
