On Tuesday, the Senate held a hearing on the domestic terror group Antifa, which has been quite busy rioting and causing general hate and discontent in liberal-run cities across the country.
When given a chance to denounce the terror group, however, Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, refused to do so, claimed that calls to defund police departments aren’t literal and ended up walking out of the hearing.
Sen Ted Cruz, R-Tex., led the hearing and even gave her an opportunity to denounce the group, but she refused to do so.
Here’s video of her comments:

Here’s another video of her exit, with Cruz noting that not one single Democrat condemned Antifa:
According to Fox News:
“Sometimes I don’t 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 don’t have to listen to any more of your rhetorical speeches,” Hirono concluded. “Thank you very much. I’m leaving.”
“You’re welcome to say something negative about Antifa right now,” Cruz said as she prepared to leave.
“I think that I’ve covered the subject quite well,” she muttered.
“Okay, she declined to speak, so that is the position of the Democratic Party,” Cruz responded.
