Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz clashed with Democratic Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono at the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing Tuesday on antifa violence.

Cruz, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, convened the hearing to discuss the role antifa and other left-wing groups play in ongoing riots in major U.

S. cities like Portland.

Before getting up to leave the hearing, Hirono said “we can all agree” on denouncing “violent extremism of all stripes.”

“So to constantly accuse Democrats of not caring about that is … I can only say that you aren’t listening,” she added. “So I hope this is the end of this hearing, Mr. Chairman, and we don’t have to listen to any more of your rhetorical speeches. Thank you very much. I’m leaving.”

“I appreciate the, as always the kind and uplifting words of Senator Hirono,” Cruz responded. “And I would also note that throughout her remarks she still did not say a negative word about antifa, nor has any Democrat here. They instead engage in a political game where they depend — you’re welcome to say something negative about Antifa right now.”

“I think that I’ve covered the subject quite well,” Hirono said as she left. (RELATED: Jerry Nadler Says Antifa Violence In Portland Is ‘A Myth’)

“OK, she declined to speak, so that is the position of the Democratic Party,” Cruz shot back. “I would note also that of the seven Democratic senators who spoke, not one of them apologized for or denounced multiple Democrats calling law enforcement officers Nazis, stormtroopers and Gestapo. To be fair, I have not heard the word Nazi, but stormtrooper was Nancy Pelosi and Gestapo was another Democratic leader. That was less than helpful.”

“Across the country, we’re seeing horrific violence, we’re seeing our country torn apart,” Cruz told Fox News Monday. “Violent anarchists and Marxists are exploiting protests to transform them into riots and direct assaults on the lives and safety of their fellow Americans.”

Did Donald Trump condemn white supremacy?

WHITE supremacy organisations were brought to the fore during the presidential debate. 

Here’s what the President had to say about the groups.

During a segment on race relations, moderator Chris Wallace asked Trump if he was willing to denounce "white supremacists and militia groups" and tell them to stand down.

It comes as multiple senior federal officials, including at the FBI and Department of Homeland Security have been warning that they pose a rising threat of violence in the United States.

But Trump initially replied by blaming "the left wing" for violence, before saying he was "willing to do anything."

He said:  "What do you want to call them? Give me a name.

"Proud Boys, stand back and stand by..

 "But I'll tell you what, somebody's got to do something about antifa."

Antifa, which stands for anti-fascist, is a largely unstructured, far-left movement whose followers broadly aim to confront those they view as authoritarian or racist.

What did Joe Biden say? 

Biden, responding to Wallace asking Trump to condemn white supermacist movements, said: “Do it. Say it.”

Referring  to antifa, he said: "His [Trump’s]  own FBI director said ... antifa is an idea, not an organisation. Not militias."

The Proud Boys is a white nationalist group that was founded in 2016.

The alt-right organization was launched in New York City in 2016 and has been classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

They have appeared alongside other alt-right groups at extremist gatherings.

This included the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2018 that left counter-protester Heather Heyer dead and 19 others injured.

There are three degrees of membership, according to the SPLC.

"To become a first degree in the 'pro-West fraternal organisation' a prospective member simply has to declare 'I am a western chauvinist, and I refuse to apologize for creating the modern world,'" the SPLC says.

"To enter the second degree, a Proud Boy has to endure a beating until they can yell out the names of five breakfast cereals (in order to demonstrate 'adrenaline control') and give up masturbation because, in theory, it will leave them more inclined to go out and meet women."
