In a previous blog I had posted one of my most barbed titles:
“Ted Cruz—I hate using the word evil, but let’s look at this wretched human being.” This venom was motivated by Ted Cruz’s abhorrent advice to Arab Christians in the Middle East. But now we need to focus on the domestic front, to see what dark force is assailing us.
Senator Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz announced his bid for the White House at Liberty University, a large evangelical institution founded by the late Jerry Falwell Sr. that regularly hosts many political leaders on its campus. What is wrong with this? Well two things actually:
1) According to Falwell, AIDS was God’s punishment. What about African Americans? Falwell Sr. has boasted that he lived in the segregated past and believed that “the true Negro does not want integration…he realizes his potential is far better among his own race.” What about people who disagree with him about abortion? What about feminists? What about the ACLU? What about people who have tried to secularize society? Well, evidently 9/11 happened because God was angry at all these people. Falwell supported apartheid and opposed the Brown v. Board of Education ruling (evidently God would not have tolerated blacks mingling with whites on school buses). What about labor unions? Oh yes, he was not so keen on them either: “Labor unions should study and read the Bible instead of asking for more money. When people get right with God, they are better workers.”
2) An Evangelical Institution. Well 80% of evangelicals voted for Mitt Romney—an asset-stripping, serial-lying, misogynistic Mormon who still believed that his trickle-down economic plan (that no respected economists agreed with) would help the “American middle class” i.e. these evangelicals happily would vote for a person whose values are the opposite of Christ—an anti-Christ.
Perhaps Ted Cruz was not familiar with Jerry Falwell—so let us try this:
He has fun with Pat Robertson on his show The 700 Club, the man who says and does countless despicable things, makes annual prophesies whereby every year he gets hoisted by is own petard—either that, or God is totally clueless as to what will happen. Cruz said “At the end of the day, faith is not organized religion; it’s not going to a church. It is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior,” OK great, so he is claiming to be follower of Jesus. We need to keep reminding ourselves of that. Who did Jesus hate? Jesus only lost his temper once. Just saying. But Jesus told Peter, that before the cock crowed that Peter would disown Jesus thrice. So how has Cruz denied Jesus thrice and more? Jerry Falwell—first denial. Pat Robertson—the second denial. Now watch Cruz deny Jesus a third time by kneeling at the foot of another of Satan’s spawn. Meet Kevin Swanson, who makes occultist Hitler look rational.
Here Swanson is equating birth control with the pits of hell. I guess 98% of women are hell bound.
Kevin Swanson explicitly endorsed the idea of imposing the death penalty for homosexuality, and he is looking forward to eliminating homosexuals. Now this man’s religious hatred is well known—yet various Stupidparty candidates felt the need to pay homage to this ghastly man. Huckabee went—but anyone paying attention would know that Huckabee’s views are the polar opposite of the values of Jesus (this is not an opinion, it is a fact, as I prove here). Now watch Ted Cruz kneeling before the altar of hate, and demanding that every American president do the same.
But sadly Ted Cruz is not mad, and Ted Cruz does not make gaffes, as Rolling Stone reports:
Ted Cruz is far from crazy, which is the essential Ted Cruz problem. Crazy you can deal with, even forgive a little, often ignore. Ben Carson is a bowl of Froot Loops floating in a sad lethal pond of gasoline. Donald Trump went warp speed into the Trumpiverse decades ago. Both men have conducted their campaigns and recent years on perpetual tangents. But Ted Cruz knows exactly what he’s doing. He doesn’t even hide it particularly well. Not only is his intelligence one of his favorite selling points, his book undermines any notion that he misspeaks. He is gaffe proof because the gaffes are not arrived at by error. Ted Cruz does awful things by intelligent design.
The fact that Ted Cruz is loathed by his Senate colleagues should be warning enough. Ted Cruz’s quest for the GOP presidential nomination has been hampered, from the start, by the reality that the vast majority of influential DC Republicans simply can’t stand the guy.
Why doesn’t Ted Cruz mind? Because he fully understands what I have been saying for quite some time—that the GOP base is simply not capable of critical thinking, has zero interest in facts—and the more bigoted, arrogant and disgusting you are, the more they will love you. The GOP base basically hate everything and everyone who is not them. All their ideas have failed, they lose every argument, they feel that they are made to look stupid—all that is left is the delusion that they are thinking, having a conversation, or winning an argument with an insult, because that is all they have. Hence any candidate that fills this emptiness with toxic goo will get their love. Hence the ever devolving level of politicians that they are atrracted to. Hence Trump, Hence Cruz.
Ted Cruz: ” If I am talking, I am lying.” We know that – but how big a punch can Ted Cruz pack in one single sentence? I believe Ted Cruz may have have just beaten the world record in that category:
So what’s Cruz’s game? Go for the kill, go for the most gullible of them all—all the pseudo-Christians that dwell in the Stupidparty inferno. And do it all in the name of the Lord, naturally.
What does Ted Cruz really want – who is his real God ? Well we can let Ted Cruz himself provide the answer:
But for those who work in the name of that Lord on high, they must be judged accordingly. So if the glove fits we must acquit—if not we must crucify. So come on down Jesus, time to meet your guy. Will you love him?
Cruz would like to explain Jesus Christ’s strategy in tackling a certain hate —ISIS:
“We will utterly destroy ISIS. We will carpet bomb them into oblivion. I don’t know if sand can glow in the dark, but we’re going to find out.”
Is that what Jesus would do? Perhaps we should consider what Mohammad, who would be more in tune with Cruz – what would Mohammad do? Would Mohammad not listen to his generals?
A former commandant of West Point comments:
While he clearly thinks the imagery is cute, nothing has made it more obvious that Ted Cruz has absolutely no idea what he’s talking about. He certainly hasn’t consulted with any actual military men on the subject, nor is he familiar with any basic military history of the country he claims to love so dearly. Maj. Gen. Robert Scales (ret.), Vietnam veteran and former commandant of West Point, laughed when queried on the issue. “That’s just another one of those phrases that people with no military experience throw around.” The Vice Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff, General. Paul Selva, disgustedly noted that this “not the way that we apply force in combat. It isn’t now, nor will it ever be.”
Now perhaps Ted Cruz knows something more about Syria than any on else, to rationalize the slaughter hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians. So lets take a peak at what he knows.
Now in reality their are hundreds maybe thousands of rebel factions—representing an incredible array of agendas—but Cruz wants us to hate them all, carpet bomb them all. But remember Cruz does not make gaffes, he knows exactly what I have just clarified. He is inflaming hatred both of Americans and for Americans—thus he is putting both American lives and non American lives in danger, all for personal gain. A bit like when he wanted to maneuver the US Government into shutting down, causing countless employees to be sent home, or defaulting on its national debt, which would have been catastrophic for America—increasing the costs of servicing it debts for generations, all to prove to idiots that he dislikes the Government more than any body else. Grandstanding on epic proportions—all for personal gain. A total sociopath.
Well I am not sure if military strategy is Jesus’s strong suit, he never showed any interest in the subject-except to reject it out of hand.
After the Colorado Planned Parenthood shootings, Ted Christ called the shooter a ‘Trans-gendered Leftist Activist.’ This untruthful statement reveals so much. First he desperately tries to latch onto a false rumor spread by fake right wing pseudo-journalists that John Dear, the bearded, aging, white, pro-life, misogynistic gun nut would somehow prefer to be running around in high heels, pressing wildflowers. Even if that were true, that this would automatically turn an obvious caricature Stupidparty disciple into a phantom leftist activist just beggars belief. But it reveals so much more about his base. Cruz and his fellow bunch of clowns are the very people who have incited the Planned Parenthood attack in the first place. But look at all the things this one sentence comment represents:
- It is OK to lie.
- It is OK to get ones news from pseudo-journalists.
- It is OK to carry on inflaming and pandering to the mob.
- Anyone with any type of sexual identity variance must be a leftist activist.
- He fully understands that 67% of the base are incapable of critical thinking, he knows that whoever can inspire these idiots the most will get the nomination -hence the more absurd you can be—the better you do in the polls.
But Cruz has prayed every day for guidance, and his savior has responded, “Unto you I say, go forth and lie, – lie to all the idiots that I have created—for I have made them thy Sheep—they will respondeth well to thee, my chosen one.” So Cruz goes forth to the land of the caves and say unto the great gatherings of Troglodytes that the Democrats have issued an ominous threat to the Catholic Church:
“Change your religious beliefs or we’ll use our power in the federal government to shut down your charities and your hospitals.”
The crowd respondeth, “Oh Father Ted Jesus Cruz, you must shut down the Government, for we do not need hospitals, not while you are there for us.”
Cruz’ then sayeth that there was a “strong bipartisan majority” in the House that voted to repeal Obamacare (two Democrats joined the Republicans).
The crowd respondeth: “Oh Father Ted Jesus Cruz, we don’t need no healthcare—it is just another brick in the wall.”
Cruz then sayeth, “It is a felony with ten years’ jail term to sell the body parts of unborn children for profit. That’s what these videos [show?] We shouldn’t send $500 million of taxpayer money to fund an ongoing criminal enterprise.”
The crowd respondeth, “Oh Father Ted Jesus Cruz they have sinned—for we are pro-life, and the sinners must die, women looking for healthcare are moochers and should die, those that have used contraception, they must die.”
Yes, calleth me Father Ted Jesus Cruz, and I now sayeth, “There are 110,000 agents at the IRS. We need to put a padlock on that building and take every one of those 110,000 agents and put them on our southern border.” (The IRS doesn’t have 110,000 employees, let alone agents. They have 14,000).
The crowd respondeth, “Father Ted Jesus Cruz they have sinned, we need no government, thus we need no taxes, thus these 110,000 or 14,000 must die. We don’t need no education, we don’t need no healthcare, we don’t need no social security, we don’t need no army, we don’t need no police, we don’t need gun control, its all just another brick in the wall.”
And then Jesus did visit upon Cruz and sayeth, “You did well, you have become me, for worrying about the truth is just so time consuming, you have the proudest record of all my fallen angels on Politifact for not telling the truth. Out of the 36 comments fact-checked an astonishing 67 percent of them have been rated as ‘Mostly False’ all the way down to ‘Pants on Fire.’ And out of all 36 of those comments, only one has been rated as ‘True.’ It was so inspired of you to use the truth to bash handicapped people when you truthfully said that government regulations are so bad that they actually demand wheelchair toilet seats. Son, you make me so proud.”
And the crowd respondeth, “Father Ted Jesus Cruz, we don’t need no handicapped. They should rise up by their own prayer -or failing that, their own shoelaces, or boot straps (whatever comes to hand) but we just do not need no more moochers, for they are just another brick in wall.”
And then Jesus Christ turned to Ted with tears of emotion and said, “You know why I am so proud of you? It is because you are just like me, for I am a total a#%hole, always have been. I hate all Italians (we call them Romans) all gentiles, all the poor, the diseased—eh, and as for women, please don’t go there—no I really prefer to hang out with twelve loser fisherman and a bloody tax collector—what a creep he was. Anyway, everyone I talk to confirms that you are living my life in my image.”
Talking Points Memo founder on Ted Cruz ‘everybody I talked to—men and women, cool kids and nerds, conservative and liberal—started the conversation pretty much the same.’”
As Reported in The Daily Beast, and Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo and from people who knew this man personally:
Ted? Oh yeah, immense a*#hole. Sometimes “total raging a#%hole.” Sometimes other variations on the theme. But you get the idea. Very common reaction. In addition to Mazin and Leitch, several fellow classmates who asked that their names not be used described the young Cruz with words like “abrasive,” “intense,” “strident,” “crank,” and “arrogant.” Four independently offered the word “creepy,” with some pointing to Cruz’s habit of donning a paisley bathrobe and walking to the opposite end of their dorm’s hallway where the female students lived.
And Ted, I would certainly not mingle with anyone who had not gone an Ivy League School. Sorry let me clarify—I would certainly not mingle with any plebes who had not been to Harvard, Princeton, or Yale:
“My friend [redacted] went to Harvard Law with Ted. [He] says that Ted shocked people when during the first week, he announced that he was creating a study group and only people with high GPAs from the Big Three Ivies could apply for admission. In short, Ted managed to come off as a pompous asshole at Harvard Law.”
And then the always logical Jesus advised: “You know Ted, how I got people to follow me? I told them that if they just rose up against the Roman government, play no more games and demand total transparency, then they could be free of paying taxes, free of getting an education, free of ever having to take up arms again, yet free to bear arms. Free to shoot bad people and make sure only good people like us have weapons. So that is why your message is so galvanizing, brilliant in its dishonesty:
Father Ted Cruz says, “Republicans should be bold, should be fully transparent, shouldn’t play any games, and should pass a serious agenda that resonates with the American people.”
Brilliant in its dishonesty? Yes Teddy, because we both know…
Republicans aren’t going to get rid of the IRS. They aren’t going to pass term limits. They aren’t going to pass a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. They aren’t going to pass a lifetime ban on lobbying for members of congress. They aren’t going to repeal Common Core. They aren’t going to mess with the judicial branch. There’s no such thing as illegal amnesty. They aren’t going to prod the president into declaring war on Iran. They aren’t going to get rid of Export-Import Bank.
Father Ted Cruz joins Jesus in their favorite song.
We don’t need no education
We don’t need no gun control
No dark people in the classroom
Teachers leave us idiots alone
Hey! Jesus, kill those we hate with a drone!
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall.
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall.
I will let Andy Schmookler conclude. Andy Schmookler is an award-winning author, political commentator, radio talk-show host, and teacher.
“Ted Cruz is the latest of these power-lusting sociopaths to rise to prominence to do the work of spreading brokenness. Not ‘mad’ himself, Cruz has no qualms about fostering madness in others to further his own lust for power, and also to satisfy his apparent appetite for manipulating and exploiting others.
Keeping the likes of Ted Cruz from making ‘crazy… the new normal,’ is an imperative for all Americans who don’t want Evil to be ruling our world.”
