Trick or Treat
Here’s a pumpkin patch you might want to stay away from.
In case you’ve been wondering where Cruz gets his assholeness from, here you go.
In April, Rafael Cruz, the father of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), spoke to the tea party of Hood County, which is southwest of Fort Worth, and made a bold declaration: The United States is a “Christian nation.” The septuagenarian businessman turned evangelical pastor did not choose to use the more inclusive formulation “Judeo-Christian nation.” Insisting that the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution “were signed on the knees of the framers” and were a “divine revelation from God,” he went on to say, “yet our president has the gall to tell us that this is not a Christian nation…The United States of America was formed to honor the word of God.” Seven months earlier, Rafael Cruz, speaking to the North Texas Tea Party on behalf of his son, who was then running for Senate, called President Barack Obama an “outright Marxist” who “seeks to destroy all concept of God,” and he urged the crowd to send Obama “back to Kenya.”
Got that? Cruz senior wants Barack Obama to go “back to Kenya” because, presumably, Rafael Cruz believes that the President was born there. That makes this guy a birther. At the same time, he stumps for his Canadian-born son in Iowa and around the country and prays that little Rafael becomes the 44th president of the United States.
What’s the Spanish word for ‘idiot’?
Do you have any idea how wonderful and enjoyable 2016 will be should Ted Cruz become the Republican presidential nominee? I can’t wait.
