(PatriotHeadline)- Remember Beto O’Rourke? He was the failed Texas Senate candidate who couldn’t beat Ted Cruz but thought he could beat President Trump and ran a failed 2020 presidential campaign.
It seems that O’Rourke hasn’t given up his fight against the Texas Senator and recently wrongly accused Cruz of being guilty of “sedition.”
The far-left Democrat called on Senator Cruz to resign for standing up for his voters and demanding a full debate over the allegations of misconduct and fraud in the 2020 presidential election. O’Rourke also attempted to paint Cruz as being guilty of inciting an insurrection in Washington, D.C., a ludicrous claim also leveled at former President Trump.
“Don’t let him off the hook,” O’Rourke said in a threatening tweet.
“Don’t let him make this about ‘Hollywood’ – this is about Ted Cruz aiding and abetting an insurrection that killed 5 people including a cop and very nearly ended in the murders of members of Congress and the Vice President,” he added.

Not only was the claim wrong, as Senator Cruz roundly condemned the actions in Washington, D.C., on January 6, but his analysis of what happened was ALSO incorrect.
The FBI recently walked back its claims that Capitol rioters intended to “capture and assassinate” elected officials. USA News Today reported on how federal officials said there was “no direct evidence of kill and capture teams” among the Capitol rioters.
But Beto O’Rourke has failed to acknowledge that fact and maintains his inaccurate claims about Senator Cruz.
O’Rourke is one of many Democrats who have put pressure on Cruz to resign, disguised as an effort to rid the Congress of “insurrectionists” but really motivated by a desire to turn Texas blue.
Cruz was one of a number of Republican Senators who initially objected to the certification of the Electoral College votes and intended to force a ten-day debate on the issue of election fraud, but that plan was destroyed by agitators and rioters who scared many Republicans into supporting Biden’s election.
Why do Democrats ignore how the riot in Capitol Hill benefitted them, and stopped ten days of election fraud and misconduct evidence being examined by the nation’s elected officials?
