During an interview with radio host Huge Hewitt, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz went bonkers and claimed that most violent crimes in the US are committed by Democrats.
After host Hugh Hewitt had claimed that he has never met a violent “pro-life” activist, Cruz claimed that most violent criminals are Democrats.
This whole episode has really displayed the ugly underbelly of media. Every time you have some sort of violent crime or mass killing you can almost see the media salivating. Hoping, hoping desperately that the murderer happens to be a Republican so they can use it to try to paint their political enemies.
Listen, here’s the simple and undeniable fact. The overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats. The media doesn’t report that. Democrats have for years been viewed as soft on crime because they go in, and they appoint to the bench judges who release violent criminals. They go in, and they do what Barack Obama tried to do which is appoint a lawyer who voluntarily represented for free a cop killer to a senior Justice Department position.
They go in and fight to give the right to vote to convicted felons. Why? Because the Democrats know that convicted felons tend to vote Democrat. And the media never reports on any of that, doesn’t want to admit any of that, but you can see every time there is a terrible crime, they’re just so excited. Come on please, one of these be a Republican so that we can try to paint the other side. It is one of the more egregious examples of media bias that we see over and over and over again.
According to Ted Cruz, most violent crimes are committed by Democrats. Democrats want to restore voting rights to convicted felons because most convicted felons are Democrats, and the media has covered all of this up because they are biased and helping Democrats win.
There is no statistical evidence to support Cruz’s claim that Democrats are responsible for most violent crimes because he made it up.
By claiming that most violent criminals are Democrats, Cruz was hinting that most violent crime is committed by Blacks and Hispanics. Cruz was playing his own sly version of the racism card by interchanging violent criminal with Democrat. The problem is that 60% of all violent crimes were committed by white men and women.
Sen. Cruz has literally detached himself from reality to try to explain away the role of Republican rhetoric in the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shooting.
Cruz’s comments could be viewed as his big move to capture the insane white pro-Trump vote. Ted Cruz has gone completely insane and is making it up as he goes along.
This new campaign strategy will only help him with a Republican electorate that has abandoned reality years ago.
