“I’m Leaving” Here’s Why Mazie Hirono Just Stormed Out Of Ted Cruz’s Antifa Hearing

(Liberty Bell) – Notoriously dramatic Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono (HI) threw a fit during a Senate hearing on Tuesday after pressed by Chairman Ted Cruz (R-TX) to condemn Antifa.

This is today’s Democratic Party. They can’t even be bothered to condemn terrorists.

Of course, Hirono absolutely refused to condemn the far-left, radical militant group that has been behind a number of terrorist attacks in just the last few months alone.

Instead, she stormed out of a Senate hearing.

BizPac Review notes cynically:

Hirono’s refusal to denounce the Antifa riots, looting, arson, and assaults is like the ostrich that buries its head in the sand, hoping this nullifies reality.

Hirono walked out after a testy exchange with Cruz, who was chairing a Senate hearing on the role that Antifa and Black Lives Matter extremists are playing in the alarming escalation of violence around the country.

Cruz slammed Democrats for not condemning Antifa riots, during which thugs burned down churches, torched federal courthouses, and beat up police officers and civilians.

Hirono got upset because Cruz asked her to specifically disavow Antifa instead of spouting vague platitudes about opposing violence.

Hirono said to Cruz: “Sometimes I don’t think you listen. How many times have I had to say that we all should be denouncing violent extremists of every stripe?”

Cruz shot back: “Does that include Antifa?”

Hirono ignored the question and replied: “I hope this is the end of this hearing, Mr. Chairman, and that we don’t have to listen to any more of your rhetorical speeches. Thank you very much. I’m leaving.”

Keep in mind that Democrats like Mazie Hirono have repeatedly demanded that President Trump condemn every fringe extremist who commits any act that can be weaponized against the Right.

Ever the epic troll, as Hirono was packing up her things, Cruz quipped “I appreciate the kind, uplifting words of Senator Hirono. I would also note that throughout her remarks she still did not say a negative word about Antifa. Nor has any Democrat here.”

He gave her another chance as she was leaving, saying “You’re welcome to say something negative about Antifa right now.”

Hirono refused.

“She declined to speak, so that is the position of the Democratic Party,” Cruz noted.

That evening, Cruz told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that the thugs of Antifa and Black Lives Matter are being empowered by Democrats like Hirono who refuse to condemn their actions or do anything to prevent the violence.

“We are seeing too many local officials — mayors and governors — who have made a cynical decision that it is in their partisan interest to turn a blind eye to this violence,” he said.

“Not only are [Democrats] not stopping the violence, they are facilitating it. Every one of us has a right to speak. We have a right to protest. But what is happening is not free speech. And those who are peacefully protesting are seeing their protests hijacked by violent anarchists, by Marxists who are engaged in acts of terror,” he continued.

“None of this is complicated: Don’t firebomb a police car. Don’t loot and destroy small businesses. Don’t murder police officers. What is striking is that in four hours of hearing in the Senate subcommittee that I chaired, seven Democrats spoke and questioned the witnesses. Not a single one dared to criticize Antifa in any way because they are making a cynical decision that they want to encourage these radical leftists who are assaulting and threatening American citizens,” he said.

  1. You have to give it to the democrats, they have a herd mentality, groupthink and similar DNA relative to their soul which to me they don’t have because the truth can bite them in the face and they will denie it and then turn around and spread their own conspiracy theories to explain the truth as a lie. Example, how can you call riots around this country as peaceful demonstrations in Portland, Seattle, NY and other cities/states where the American public can see buildings burning, law and order under attack, stores loot down to the bone and then destroy with fire. Not one democrat to my knowledge denounced these rioters and call them out. To hear a former president hypocrisy to say federal officers attack peaceful demonstrators would be a joke, but it’s not, they believe the lies they are spewing because the fake news net works are not showing it and if they do they edit the sections that show the true colors of these leftist thugs/rioters/agitators/Marxist, haters of America. Thank God that there are other avenues and media net works that are showing the actual devastation of this country, night after night.

    Make no mistake, they are organized and well funded by people who hate this country, truth, Liberty, law and order and religious freedom.

  2. There is little if any hope for the Dumbacrats. “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” — Ronald Reagan I’m in my “sunset years” and I fear my children will be the ones attempting to explain.

  3. Hirono has her home in one of the most beautiful places on earth, the fifty-first of America’s gorgeous and mostly diverse states. So what do she and the rest of the Democrat party want from all of us? Is she willing to see the Hawaiian Islands destroyed, burned into the sea by far left groups like Antifa and BLM? Maybe she thinks they won’t come to her state, but the virus of hate and terror knows no bounds once it has devoured the innocent. May God destroy His enemies utterly and preserve the peace for this great nation. Hirono has chosen the side of her allegiance.

  4. Now I suppose some can say anything they like, the fact being is that no law enforcement group State or Federal has said it was Antifa, but they have said it was the far right group BOOGALOO BOYS who have been charged with MURDER, ATTEMPTED MURDER, Transportation of Guns ammunition and explosives across state line for the purpose of starting riots which would lead to a Civil race war in this USA.

    • You are actually wrong Robert. The top law enforcement official in the country has named antifa. There won’t be a “race civil war” in this country. Most African Americans I talk to do not like or support the cause they believe in being hijacked by blm and antifa. These Marxists and anarchists are the problem, not a black/white thing man. Do some research and stop taking everything you hear from the leftist media to heart.

  5. Every good American should show up to vote on November 3. We are losing our country to the socialists/extremists; this will be the most important, consequential election of our lifetime. We must re-elect Trump and keep the Senate if we want to keep our country as the best country in the world with our capitalistic system and not let it fall to the Socialists. We truly do need to make America great again!

  6. IF IN FACT THEY (THE DEMOCRATES) ARE NOT CONDEMMING THE ANTIFA AND BLM; THEN WHAT DO THEY THINK PEOPLE ARE THINKING ABOUT THEM. THEY MUST BE ONE OF THEM. I THINK WE CITIZENS OF THE GREAT UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, MUST DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE PROBLEM: AND NOV.3rd IS THE RIGHT TIME TO TAKE ACTION. (DON’T LET THE DEMONIC SPIRIT TAKE OVER YOUR COMON SINCE) PRAY BEFORE YOU VOTE THAT THE RIGHT CHOICE WILL B E GOD’S CHOICE. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

  7. Crazy Mazie is at it again. She said that she doesn’t take defunding the police literally. Well, how are you supposed to take it when the police departments in democratically run cities are stripped of money and they have to lay off police officers? I would say that the city mayors are taking it literally. Using the money taken from police departments and diverting it to social workers, youth services, etc. is undermining the protection of the people.

  8. Wished when she walked and said I am leaving, I was hoping she meant quitting the Senate. Oh shucks, wishful thinking on my part.

  9. Both antifa and blm need to be disbanded and gone from America! They are both communist/marxist groups that are out to destroy America with the support of democrats, liberal entertainers, msm, gates obamas, clintons, bidens and their master soros! He donates millions of dollars to all of these! They in return bow to his every word and whim!! He is supporting many, many democrats and some republicans across America in their elections! They have the money for a lot of publicity through the TV, newspaper and social media that their opponents don’t have the funds for! A communist democrat just won in Missouri upsetting a long time democrat in congress! See what they are doing!
    VOTE REPUBLICAN 2020 AND SAVE AMERICA FROM THE COMMUNIST!!

  10. Let’s not forget that Obama was looking for revenge and nicety was not mentioned.The assumption being violence.

    • Didn’t Obama say something like, “I’m going change this country”, while in office, and that he has.

  11. Antifa need to be exterminated like the vermin they are, rodents that walk upright on two legs. All male Antifa fortunate enough to survive should be captured and castrated, and all comparable female Antifa should be sterilized as a dual precaution that they can never reproduce their bastard kind!

  12. I agree with Cruz. The demons can’t criticize their own. Antifa is the military-arm of the demonrat party. They’ve funded antifa, provided them with battle plans, cut off police protection, and hired local and regional group leaders. I’d be willing to bet the demons hired ex-military to train and guide antifa operatives. There’s video of weapons being brought to ‘peaceful protests’. Weapons caches have been found and confiscated. A few antifa operatives have been arrested on federal crimes. The dummycrats will squeal when handed a choice between prison or fingering their leaders. It will all come back to the demons like Hirono one day.
