It’s no secret that I think Republicans are absolute hypocrites, especially when it comes to our Constitution. They’re frequently the ones standing tall saying things like, “We need to get back to a Constitutional America!” yet they have absolutely no problem trying to violate the Constitution whenever it supports something with which they disagree.
It’s especially hypocritical when someone like Texas Senator Ted Cruz speaks about “Constitutional values” because he’s staunchly opposes the Affordable Care Act (even though it’s been ruled Constitutional), he’s against same-sex marriage (even though our First Amendment says laws cannot be based on religion) and he’s anti-abortion (even though Roe v Wade declared that women have the right to have control over their own bodies over 40 years ago).
Well, during a speech for the Susan B. Anthony List (an anti-abortion group) Ted Cruz said that those who support abortion rights chant, “Hail, Satan!” to silence their enemies.
Let me remind you that this is a United States Senator, not some no-name evangelical pastor from some small east Texas church.
So, in other words, Ted Cruz feels that if you support the Constitutionally protected right for women to have control over their own bodies, you’re essentially a satan worshipper.
Cruz’s good buddy Utah Senator Mike Lee also chimed in, saying that abortion rights supporters were dealing with a “culture of death” and participated in “savagery.”
Which means if you support abortion rights, you’re a savage who endorses a culture of death.
Again, these are current United States Senators. Not random wackos with their own YouTube channel.
It’s absolutely terrifying to me that we have people like these individuals in Congress – especially in 2014. That in this day and age we have active members of Congress calling Americans who support Constitutional rights satanists and savages.
I always ask, “Are members of Congress required to undergo a psych evaluation before assuming office?” If not, they should be because I really don’t believe that anyone who sits there and says abortion rights supporters are all satanists is a sane person.
And I damn sure don’t believe they should be a member of the United States Congress. But unfortunately talk like this actually makes these individuals even more popular with conservatives.
Which goes to show you exactly what kind of country they really want to turn the United States into.
