“My God! A parent did a Nazi salute at a school board because they thought the policies were oppressive,” Cruz said. “General Garland, is doing a Nazi salute at an elected official, is that protected by the First Amendment?”

“Yes, it is,” Garland replied.

However, Cruz took to Twitter to defend his defense of Nazi salutes at school board meetings. “Lefty journos are either (1) dishonest or (2) not very bright (or both).” He wrote. “The parent was doing the Nazi salute because he was calling the authoritarian school board Nazis—evil, bad & abusive”.

He added: “And yes, calling someone a Nazi is very much protected by the First Amendment.”
