Ted Cruz: Liar and Lunatic

First off, let’s call it what it was: a terrorist attack.

I’m talking about that shooting last week at the Planned Parenthood on Colorado where Robert Dear went on a rampage and murdered three people and wounded nine others. Terrorism; by, as I said on Twitter, spurring the ire of some rightwingnuts, a Christian extremist. And then I received even more angry Tweets when I said the GOP wasn’t commenting because a Christian with a gun shooting up a Planned Parenthood was “their base.”

Because it is; when you are the party that calls Christianity the only real religion — and ask that only Christian Syrian refugees be allowed entrance to this melting Pot called America — and when you are in the back pocket of the NRA and have almost never condemned any shooting spree in this country and when you spout lie about Planned Parenthood — and I’m looking at you Carly Fiorina and Mike Huckabee — then that man, Robert Dear, is your base.

So, what to do what to do; well, Carly and the Huckster immediately set about saying their lies about Planned Parenthood selling ‘baby parts’ for profit was not in any way responsible for the attack … even though Dear shouted that message as he was killing innocent people.

But it’s Republican loon Ted Cruz, who I am sure readied his thoughts on the matter while sitting in a  bunker with an aluminum foil hat upon his head because he says, and I kid you not, that Robert Dear wasn’t a rightwingnut Christian Republican gun nut, but a … wait for it … it’s rich … but a leftist transgender female.

Uh huh. So, it’s the left and the transgender community to blame for this.
‘It’s also been reported that he was registered as an independent and a woman and transgendered leftist activist, if that’s what he is. We know that he was a man who was registered to vote as a woman. The media promptly wants to blame him on the pro-life movement when at this point there is very little evidence to suggest that.’
Wow. But if he wasn't pro-life, why shout about selling 'baby parts' Ted?

And Ted, why would you get your "news", not from reputable authorities, police or FBI, but from the conservative Gateway Pundit website that says Dear was listed as female on the Park County voting register?

And, again, from reputable sources, there is no evidence to suggest Dear was transgender, and that he was most likely listed as female due to a clerical error.

But hey, when you’re Ted Cruz and a member of your base has gone off and started killing people, you might sit in your bunker and kinda gleefully smile, but you’ll step outside and immediately begin lying and pandering and mislabeling the truth.

Robert Dear was a Christian extremist with access to guns and a mind fed lies about Planned Parenthood. In other words, he was the GOP base, which is why they will say nothing, next to nothing, or just outright lie about what happened last week in yet another act of homegrown terrorism.

When I was pregnant with the twins and worked for PP we had a bomb threat. Turned out to be just harassment. Our clinic was full of young women, some children and babies - how much did our harassers value life?

According to some reports, “Aides to Mr. Cruz said he was not saying with certainty that the gunman was a “transgender leftist activist,” but rather highlighting how little was known about him definitively.

“‘He was making the point that there isn’t enough information,’ Rick Tyler, a campaign spokesman, said. ‘You can’t expect a full response to a story that’s developing. The point was there’s a lot of raw information going around that’s not confirmed.’"

So the defense is that (a) the sinator (yes, I spelled that right) is not saying what he said; and (b) that the way to solve alleged misinformation is to contribute more misinformation; (c) when you can;t give a full response, the best response is an inadequate one making inflammatory assertions.

SomeOne, sinator Cruz, famously said that the truth will set you free. Why not try that approach for a change?

Sorry, I may have got this wrong, but wasn't he shooting it up at Planned Parenthood? If you are killing people indiscriminately at a specific place then most investigators would take the venue specifically into consideration when considering the motives of the killer. It is possible that Dear is a transgender male, but he could more easily be a male person high on Tea Party/NRA hate filled values.

How much longer will the GOP be in thrall to the NRA? How many more people have to die? Wait until someone mows down half the GOP and then something might be done - any volunteers? Of course not because normal people don't go around with an arsenal of guns

Truth is completely absent from the Republican presidential candidates. Oh, yeah, and intelligence.
