In a Fox News interview, Sen. Ted Cruz criticized Big Tech, and he was interrupted by Siri, who is somehow linked to this entire situation. He seemed that he had Something to say about this.
Cruz is among the few Republican lawmakers who spoke at Turning Point USA’s America Fest this week in Phoenix.

At the event, Ted Cruz stated that Big Tech is “the single greatest threat to free speech” and “free and fair elections in America.”
Take a look at the video below.
“Big Tech, they are hard left. They’re not just Democrats. They’re to the left of the Democratic Party. And they’re trying to drive the Democratic Party left. And, you know, listen, I’.m someone who believes in free speech.” Cruz stated.
At some point, we saw that Siri wanted to say Something, “Something went wrong. Please try again,”
“Well, Big Tech is getting mad; Siri just said, ‘Something went wrong. Please try again.’ I’m actually perfectly happy that Siri got mad. Sorry there, Siri,” – Senator Cruz
Cruz talked about his support for free speech and stated that the left doesn’t believe in free speech.
“When we have hearings, I’ve chaired multiple hearings on Big Tech censorship. Democrats show up, number one, they say it doesn’t happen, that it’s simply not occurring. But number two, to the extent they engage, they lean in and say censor more. I think Democrats were furious with Big Tech. ‘How the hell did Donald Trump get elected in 2016? How did you let any conservative speak over Big Tech?’ And the almost uniform message from Democrats is censor more, silence every view we disagree with.” – Senator Cruz
“So what they call ‘misinformation’ is all of Fox News. That’s misinformation. By the way, Gigi Sohn, who Biden has nominated to the Federal Communications Commission, calls Fox News’ misinformation. When they say ‘misinformation,’ they mean ‘we don’t agree with it, silence it.’ ‘Extremism.’ They mean by ‘extremism’ is every Republican in America. That’s what they call ‘extremism.’ You know what? They probably mean Joe Manchin is ‘extremism.’ I mean, they mean everyone except the hard left.” – Senator Cruz.
Cruz credited Joe Manchin because he blocked the Build Back Better from passing on Capitol Hill.
“I think Joe’s decision was the right decision. I think it’s a really big deal. The Build Back Broke Bill was a disaster. It was a train wreck. It was Bernie Sanders’ socialist budget. It was trillions in new spending, trillions in new debt, trillions in new tax; it would have driven inflation through the roof. We’ve already got inflation exploding across the country. And it was reckless and irresponsible. And you know what, the people of West Virginia don’t want it. Manchin did the right thing. He actually represented the men and women of his state.” – Senator Cruz.
Ted Cruz criticized the Dems for being nasty and vicious towards him because he opposed Biden’s signature legislation.
“A lot of folks ask, ‘Well, gosh, is Manchin going to become a Republican? I hope he does. I’ve asked him to. I think every Republican senator has made that case a dozen times to Joe. I will say, I think it’s a tough hill for him to climb. He’s just culturally. He’s a Democrat. He’s been a Democrat his whole life, and he’s really the godfather of Democrats in West Virginia. So I get why switching parties, that’s hard. That being said, if they’re nasty enough, the best thing that could happen is they could drive him over to the Republican Party, and we would welcome him.” – Senator Cruz.
