10 Reasons Why Ted Cruz is the Most Dangerous (and Craziest) Republican Candidate

ted-cruz-foolThere’s really no doubt at this point that Donald Trump is a vile human being. Even if half of the stuff he’s saying is nothing more than political rhetoric meant to pander to the lowest common denominator in this country, it still takes a special sort of scumbag to stoop to those levels just to gain admiration from bottom-feeders. But while I’ve definitely been appalled by a lot of what Trump has said, I still believe Sen. Ted Cruz is the most dangerous (and craziest) Republican candidate.

As a Texan, trust me when I say that Ted Cruz is every bit as vile, bigoted and hateful as Trump. He’s not as big of a blowhard, but he supports nearly every disgusting thing that Trump has said thus far.

The one thing Cruz is that Trump isn’t is a batshit crazy evangelical conservative. Let’s not forget that Cruz was raised by a father who believes there’s “nothing scientific about evolution” and that communism and evolution go hand-in-hand.

Essentially, Cruz is everything that’s deplorable about Trump along with being possibly the biggest religious radical of the whole bunch.

That being said, I thought I’d list 10 reasons why I think Cruz is the most dangerous (and craziest) Republican presidential candidate.

1. Following the recent Planned Parenthood murders, Cruz actually tried to claim that the domestic terrorist was a transgender liberal activist – even though there were confirmed reports from law enforcement officials saying that the shooter had used anti-abortion rhetoric taken directly from the mouths of Republicans such as himself.

2. He recently spoke at a rally where homosexuals were deemed satanic and compared to Satan.

3. He claimed that President Obama is pushing to bring Syrian refugees into the United States to “murder innocent Americans.”

4. In August, he tried to exploit the tombstones of dead soldiers to claim that religious freedom was under attack – something that was a flat-out lie.

5. He’s publicly said that the only way to save the United States is by turning it into a Christian theocracy. Oh, by the way, he said these comments to the American Family Association – an organization which is classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

6. Following the Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage, he essentially advocated ripping up the Constitution and repeatedly referred to the Court as “tyrannical” – because millions of Americans were granted their Fourteenth Amendment rights.

7. During the whole Jade Helm conspiracy idiocy pushed by crazy people who were literally burying guns in their backyards, he questioned the Pentagon, claiming that people had the right to be concerned because the government is not trustworthy.

8. During a speech last spring, his fear-mongering was so ridiculous he terrified a young girl in the audience.

9. He once boasted about the greatness of former Senator Jesse Helms, a renowned racist who supported apartheid in South Africa; frequently tried to block the appointment of African-American judges; tried to filibuster to block making a federal holiday honoring Martin Luther King Jr., and once called the University of North Carolina the “University of Negros and Communists.”

10. He has repeatedly, throughout his entire career as a senator, proven that he has no problem seeing this country burned to ashes if he thinks setting the fire would benefit him politically.

And that’s just 10 examples – trust me, there are plenty more showing just how dangerous Cruz is.

So, while Donald Trump gets most of the headlines, do not overlook Ted Cruz. While I don’t see him being taken too seriously nationally once the media sets their sights on him – exposing just how awful he is in the process – it is a testament to the continued radicalization of the GOP that he’s even risen to second place in the latest Republican polls.

    Where is Rafael Junior’s Consular Report of Birth Abroad form? It’s REQUIRED of a Citizen of the United States of America (CRBA) to document that the child is a U.S. citizen.

    Parents of a child born abroad to a U.S. citizen or citizens should apply for a CRBA and/or a U.S. passport for the child as soon as possible. Failure to promptly document a child who meets the statutory requirements for acquiring U.S. citizenship at birth may cause problems for the parents and the child when attempting to establish the child’s U.S. citizenship and eligibility for the rights and benefits of U.S. citizenship, including entry into the United States. By law, U.S. citizens, including dual nationals, must use a U.S. passport to enter and leave the United States.

      Yes indeed. Let’s see it. Let’s see the entry records if there is no FS240

  • Texas Take

    Ted Cruz better not achieve his goal of becoming our “Pastor-In-Chief.” The prospect of this snake handler naming up to 4 justices to the Supreme Court is too terrifying to contemplate. I just hope there’s enough Americans out there, like me, whose gag reflex kicks in whenever this smarmy demagogue’s face and voice are broadcast on television. “Feelin’ the Bern” more everyday!

    • Lucille Aruck

      be SURE TO GET OUT AND VOTE, so he doesn’t get in

      The bad part about Bernie, he is raising all of our taxes and wants to turn this country in to a socialist country like Denmark, Sweden and a few others. Those countries are getting personal taxes taken, last year, a rate of 54.6%. Yes, we will feel the burn alright!

      • Umm, yeah….do me a favor and look up the difference between “socialism” and “democratic socialism”. Bernie wants the latter and wouldn’t be the first president with those ideas. So get a grip with your scare tactics.

      • Jakesy Dude

        Actually even though he is a self-described Democratic socialist, his ideas line up more with social democracy, which is pretty different even though it’s just the same two words in reverse order. A quick breakdown:
        Socialism – the state controls all economic activity, usually involves single leaders with lots of power
        Democratic Socialism – same as socialism but uses the Democratic process
        Social Democracy – The state controls certain industries for the general welfare of the people (aka the “Nordic model”)
        Sanders has not even hinted at supporting full government takeover of all economic activity. In fact, one of his biggest campaign promises, breaking up the big banks, is contrary to socialism, as socialism would support combining the banks into one huge congloremate and having the government take over operations, not dividing them. He’s supports government regulation of industry, not government takeover. The United States has never elected a socialist president and it won’t in 2016, even if Bernie wins.

      • richard philbrick

        Yes, Fatso, and they GET SOMETHING BACK for their taxes…excellent health care. quality education, great infrastructure, And what do YOU GET for your taxes? Butt fu(%ed, THAT’S WHAT you mouth-breathing, booger-eating conservaturd waste of space.

  • Michael Hoppe

    I agree wholeheartedly with your assessment. Cruz is extremely dangerous. He is a dominionist christian, the worst kind. They want the United States to be a copy of Saudi Barbaria and impose christian sharia law. They are all extremely deranged and in dire need of psychiatric intervention.

  • rejectrepublicanlies

    Cruz is our country’s biggest potential nightmare. He’s a Christofascist sociopath. Huckabee’s bad, too, but he has no chance. Carson’s got the religion sickness, too, but he’s almost out.

  • FatKat

    There are way too many candidates that are dangerous, including Hillary and Bernie! This is one of the worse elections in my lifetime. Pretty scary one of those people running will be president!

    Total B.S…..
