Texas Senator Ted Cruz proudly labeled the crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference "dangerous radicals" during his speech at the conference on Friday. The remark earned him one of the loudest rounds of applause from the boisterous crowd of several hundred gathered in the main event area of the Dallas Hilton Anatole.
"As I look around and I see American flags and I see Gadsden flags and I see the Gonzalez battle flag… it occurs to me that the Biden FBI believes this is a room of dangerous radicals, Cruz said.
