After Kathy Griffin Makes Concerning “Civil War” Tweet, Ted Cruz Fires Back a Smart Counterattack

Comedian Kathy Griffin is on the anti-Conservative warpath again, and this time she’s inciting controversy over a comment related to a possible civil war.

Griffin made headlines across the country back in 2017 when she posed for a picture, in which she was holding an object that resembled the decapitated head of then-President Donald Trump.

That image received plenty of backlash and criticism, and many consider it way over the line — some even called it downright treasonous.

Now, Griffin is once again in the spotlight for producing the following tweet:

Right-wing citizens and Republican leaders quickly responded, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

He wasn’t too pleased with Griffin’s statement and fired back a reply, accusing the comedian of being hypocritical. Unsurprisingly, this prompted plenty of support and applause from the right:

Cruz labeled the left as “angry, hateful and violent,” which echoes the view of millions of Conservative Americans who believe their rights are being violated on a daily basis.

Many say they feel like second-class citizens in this Democrat-dominated regime, and worry that right-wing persecution will reach dangerous levels, especially if they start losing Constitutional liberties.

Many others besides Sen. Cruz slammed Griffin’s inflammatory post.

The Daily Caller’s editorial director and host of a popular radio program, Vince Coglianese, tweeted:

Then someone else reminded Griffin of her infamous 2017 attack on a sitting President:

Griffin responded to the backlash by saying she wasn’t calling for civil war, but merely predicting what would happen if Republicans manage to regain control after the midterm elections.

But that isn’t flying with half the country, as many right-wing voters are tired of being attacked, insulted, silenced, and basically maligned in every strata of society, from education to the media to government.

Griffin’s tweet isn’t about to make the situation any better, either.

Many will argue that despite the left’s “unity” message, they’re the ones constantly stoking the flames of dissent and conflict. And millions will say posts like Griffin’s only prove their argument.

Key Takeaways:

  • Comedian Kathy Griffin warned on Twitter that if Republicans win in November, there will be “civil war.”
  • Sen. Ted Cruz said this was “wrong” and added that the tweet proved the left is “angry, hateful & violent.”
  • Many others reminded Griffin of her inflammatory and possibly treasonous 2017 post that involved then-President Donald Trump.
