VIDEO: US Senate Stand-Your Ground Hearings, Senator Cruz, Follow-Up (10/29/13)
Hey folks, More Ted Cruz goodness--these are follow-up comments, after the various witnesses brought to testify in the hearing had completed their prepared remarks:
In particular he notes that then-Senator Obama voted for self-defense immunity laws in Illinois before he was elected to higher office. Cruz also jabs at Sen. Durbin's efforts to target ALEC and chill free speech. Durbin's hissy-fit in response can be seen at about the 8:20 mark, telling the audience "don't take my word for it, take the word of the NAACP." Haha. "Racism!!11!", the ultimate refuge of the coward. :-)
Also, don't forget that I did an overview of the entire hearing at Legal Insurrection: “Stand Your Ground” opponents mangle law and Trayvon facts at Senate Hearing
