On Thursday morning, a rally was held outside the White House to protest Obama’s recent nuclear deal with Iran.
The rally was organized by Concerned Women for America, and it was attended by Senator Ted Cruz. All was going well until the rally was crashed by liberal anti-war group Code Pink, which is known for their very disruptive behavior.
According to Conservative Tribune, Ted Cruz was interrupted when he got up to speak to the crowd by protesters screaming, “We want a peace president. We want a peace candidate. We want diplomacy not war.”
Chaos descended on the crowd as both sides yelled at each other.
“It is very interesting to see those who profess to believe in free speech are the ones afraid of speech,” Cruz shouted at the protesters. After one protester called him a “warmonger,” Cruz asked the man to come onstage and debate him calmly. The man refused, so Code Pink leader Medea Benjamin took the stage to debate Cruz himself.
“We can have a discussion if we actually have a discussion without being shut down,” Cruz said, explaining the nuclear deal to Benjamin. “If this deal goes through three things will happen. First, over a hundred billion dollars will flow to Iran that they will use to fund Hezbollah, the Houthis (in Yemen), and radical Islamic terrorists.”
“Those billions of dollars will be used to fund jihadis that will murder Americans, that will murder Israelis, that will murder Europeans. Does that make any sense?” Cruz asked.
Benjamin agreed that this doesn’t make sense, but he then returned to insisting that Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran is the only way to stop them from getting nuclear weapons. Cruz tried to respond, but he was quickly interrupted, causing him to say “Ma’am I did not interrupt you, so I would ask you to show me the same courtesy.”
Surprisingly, this earned him an apology from Benjamin. The presidential candidate then explained that billions of dollars is now being given to Iran for them to use any way they see fit.
“Iran has stated its objective to murder as many Americans as possible,” Cruz explained. “They are not seeking peace with us.”
All Benjamin could do was stare at Cruz dumbfounded. While the liberals of course continued their ridiculous protest, we’re glad to see that Cruz exposed them as the fools that they are!
