Senator Ted Cruz blasted Democrat attacks on Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, calling them “twisted and deranged.”
Cruz (R-TX) made the remarks in an interview with Fox News personality, Mark Levin.
“It’s twisted and deranged,” Cruz objected. “They are coming after her hard, they’re coming after her family, and I think it will get worse. Sadly, this is a pattern we’ve seen.”
Twisted and Deranged Democrats Attacks on Amy Coney Barrett
Upon hearing of Barrett’s nomination, Dana Houle, a Democratic activist, fired off a series of tweets in which she questioned the judge’s choice to adopt two children from Haiti.
“Some adoptions from Haiti were legitimate. Many were sketchy as hell,” she wrote.
Ibram X. Kendi, a Boston University professor and recipient of millions of dollars in donations from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, implied Barrett was a “white colonizer.”
Some White colonizers “adopted” Black children. They “civilized” these “savage” children in the “superior” ways of White people, while using them as props in their lifelong pictures of denial, while cutting the biological parents of these children out of the picture of humanity. https://t.co/XBE9rRnoqq

California Senator Dianne Feinstein famously questioned Barrett’s religion, saying “so many of us on this side have this very uncomfortable feeling” about her faith, because “the dogma lives loudly within you.”

The left tried desperately to link Barrett’s church to the dystopian novel “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
“We’re already seeing Democratic operatives … attacking her young children, which is despicable and should be totally off-bounds, but the left views the court as … central to their agenda for America,” Cruz said.
“We don’t do that to Democratic nominees,” he asserted.
Democrats Trying to Stall ACB Nomination
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), along with many others in his party, has been trying to stall the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett.
Schumer claims that it would be impossible to hold hearings safely during the pandemic.
“It makes no sense,” he railed. “If it’s not safe for the Senate to meet in session, it’s not safe for the hearings to go forward.”

Schumer, of course, was perfectly content with holding virtual hearings in an “emergency situation” not all that long ago.

“A virtual hearing is virtually no hearing at all,” Schumer now insists. “You need to be with the witness, and have direct cross-questions and back and forth with them.”
