During an interview later in the day with Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Company,” Cruz accused Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey of silencing “genuine political speech by Americans while facilitating terroristic threats by Iran.”
“Over a month ago, I sent a letter to Twitter, along with several other senators asking them to explain why they continue to provide a platform for the Ayatollah Khomeini,” Cruz outlined.” The United States Congress has passed a law making it a criminal offense to facilitate the oppression of the Iranian regime, the leading state sponsor of terrorism in the world.
Those sanction laws are designed to stop U.S. companies from facilitating Iranian terror.
And Stu, the irony of this is that at the same time Twitter, that Jack Dorsey is publishing worldwide the anti-semitic threats of violence from the Ayatollah Khomeini, Jack Dorsey is also trying to censor the President of the United States.
He’s trying to silence genuine political speech by Americans while facilitating terroristic threats by Iran.”
