Code Pink just asked if anyone in this Senate hearing on Islamic terror is "suffering from Islamophobia." pic.twitter.com/OVXZWOBZJf— Cortney O'Brien (@obrienc2) June 28, 2016
When Cruz walked in, they asked him the same thing.
They weren't the only ones to define the hearing as racist. Even before the discussion got underway, one representative from the Muslim Public Affairs Council handed out literature to the press that insisted Tuesday's hearing "is a political circus to exploit post-Orlando hysteria" and is "against engagement with the Muslim community."None of this, of course, stopped Cruz from proving how the Obama administration has consistently placed political correctness over national security by scrubbing references to Islamic terrorism.
Update: Here's the video of Sen. Ted Cruz's opening remarks. You can hear Code Pink laughing in the first 30 seconds as the chairman speaks somberly about the Fort Hood attack. Despicable.
