On Tuesday, Texas Senator Ted Cruz was a guest on the Mark Davis Show to discuss Charlottesville and the next steps for our nation.

Cruz rightly calls white nationalists “racist, bigoted thugs,” but then makes the point about the First Amendment. When people choose to use that right to say grotesque things, the rest of us are obliged to counter that hate.

It’s a conversation worth having, and Senator Cruz hits all the right notes, here.
