Tensions flared at a Senate hearing on Antifa when a top Democrat walked out of the room declaring she couldnt sit through Sen. Ted Cruzs rhetorical speeches any longer.
The dustup occurred when Cruz, R-Texas, blasted Democrats for not condemning Antifa more directly for the violence and destruction that has taken hold in certain U.S. cities in the wake of George Floyds death in Minneapolis.
But Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said Cruz just wasnt listening during the more than three-hour hearing when Democrats said violence is not acceptable.
Sometimes I dont think you listen, Hirono told Cruz at the Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing as he finished up with a nearly 10-minute speech. So, how many times have I had to say that we all should be denouncing violent extremists of every stripe.
Does that include Antifa? said Cruz, who was chairing the hearing.
I have the time, Hirono shot back.
I hope this is the end of this hearing, Mr. Chairman, and that we dont have to listen to any more of your rhetorical speeches, Hirono concluded. Thank you very much. Im leaving.

“Does that include Antifa?” said Cruz, who was chairing the hearing.
“I have the time,” Hirono shot back.
“...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,” Hirono concluded. “Thank you very much. I’m leaving.”
Hirono then packed up to leave the hearing before Cruz adjourned it.
“Well I appreciate the, as always, kind of uplifting words of Senator Hirono,” Cruz said. “And I would also note that throughout her remarks she still did not say a negative word about Antifa nor has any Democrat here.”
He urged her again to denounce the leftist extremist group. “You’re welcome to say something negative about Antifa right now,” Cruz said to his departing colleague.
“I think that I’ve covered the subject quite well,” Hirono replied in barely audible remarks before exiting the room.
“Okay, she declined to speak, so that is the position of the Democratic Party,” Cruz said.
Good followups from Cruz. That is how you do it.
Hirono is the moron who didn’t understand that illegals are breaking the law when they cross the border. “I’m confused” she said. ICE official Matthew Albence had to school her on the law.
The Commie-RATS heads explode when they get the real truth put right back in their faces. This was a great example of that. The RATS are siding with the Marxist/Antifa scum and Cruz did a good job of pointing that out.
Hirono is an insignificant twit
Well, she is a senator, so she has a certain amount of power.
Ted was using too many multi-syllabic words for Mazie the Mouthbreather...
I guess they are going to have to shoot a few of them and leave them piled up in her parking spot so she knows they are real.
Guess that’s all one can expect out of a Georgetown University graduate.
Didn’t know this, but Hirono’s parents owned a bathhouse in Honolulu. Was it the kind of bathhouse that Barry O. would frequent during his days there . . . ? Haven’t looked into it yet.
Can’t stand the uglay byatch.

Dear rest of America ; For the same people here in the State of Hawaii , I apologize to you for our afflicting this abysmal idiot , Keiko ‘Mazie’ Hirono , on all of you. She is a pathetic excuse for a U.S.Senator. Not even U.S. born, and with a very shaky, questionable , U.S. immigration narrative (fake) . Every time Hirono opens her mouth she disgraces us. She had cancer a few years ago , but sadly she seems to have recovered . Literally , there are 1000’s of people here that would live to see her keel over and croak . That is , also literally, the only way we get rid if these scum Demicrat incumbents out here. They die in office . Please God, in a fair and just wirkd....isn’t her number up yet ?
Hirono is as dumb as a block of wood. Shell make a great Presidential candidate.
Exhibit “A” as to why Hawaii should NOT be a state. Return it to the Hawaiian monarchy, keep the bases and be rid of the Stalinazi trash it sends to Washington, including the two lunatic Senators.
I think you can get to exhibit Z and just include different states lol
So, how many times do Republicans have to say that they aren't racist, senator? Sometimes, I don't think you listen.
You’ve only had one decent Senator in the 61 years of statehood, and Hiram Fong left office almost 44 years ago. Independence is the only option and Quentin Kawananakoa can become the new Emperor under the auspices of the Hawaiian Royal family (which should never have been dethroned). At least he’s a Republican. Then he can remove the Stalinists infesting the islands.
Kick out Vermont. Just as bad. Of course, get 100,000 Conservatives to move there and it could be sane and Republican again as it once was. Of course, Hawaii was Republican until the ‘50s, too, until Inouye and the other Communist nutters had their 1954 Socialist Demonrat revolution.
Sen. Crazie Hirono, just the latest of the Hawaian reds/pinkos (some Rep. named Gatz (Sp) is a leftist loon), and going back as far as old Communist Party friend Neal Abercrombie (D-Hawaii) and then governor.
Bro your head must be shaped like a very thick book.
