Cruz calls for Justice Department investigation into Charlottesville violence

Source: The Hill

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called on the Department of Justice to investigate a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va. that turned violent and left three dead and dozens injured.

"The Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacists are repulsive and evil, and all of us have a moral obligation to speak out against the lies, bigotry, ant-semitism, and hatred that they propagate," Cruz said in a statement.

Having watched the horrifying video of the car deliberately crashing into a crowd of protesters, I urge the Department of Justice to immediately investigate and prosecute this grotesque act of domestic terrorism," he continued.

2. There is something very fishy going on that only 4 people were arrested.

There should have been cop wagons full of violent offenders. They came wearing home-made combat gear!

10. They must have private polling that looks horrible

Because I ventured to FR and those nuts are making every excuse in the book, The most popular being that it was a Soros backed scheme of some type.

Cracking down hard on this will really lose their nutty base. Because their racist base loves their white supremacist stuff.

16. Ted Is a Cuban Canadian/American. He Loses If The GOP Goes 100% White Power

Ted Cruz is happy to stoke the hate while claiming that he is not really being racist, because how can he be, since his parents were immigrants. However, if the GOP goes overtly racist, then he himself will be cast aside.

18. They Can't Run. The Racist Right Is Their Base...

...they tried to bring in Hispanics, but a large segment of the GOP is racist and resented such outreach efforts to women or minorities. Trump took advantage of this resentment.
