(TheInquisitr) – The Conservative Leadership Project which is based out of South Carolina, recently had super-creepy candidate Ted Cruz make an appearance to talk about constitutional law.
The CPL Forum already has its audience, a group of people who are no doubt hard-line conservatives who oppose everything to the left of them, because that’s what the “party” is now, nothing but right-wing extremists who draw crowds by pandering to each other. So, you know that when Ted Cruz found a way to say that he wanted to kill the president, people at the forum were in agreement.
The automatic assumption of anyone who has ever read any of my work, specifically where I talk about violence, would be that because I do not support this kind of rhetoric that I would not condone violence of any kind. This would be a wrong assumption to make.
Without going too much into it and saving that for a later post, as a state, I would only condone it as much as any fighting liberal would where it would be the final immediate option and not the first, really, just like any normal person.
Saying this, I dare you to put me or anyone else with those limits up against Ted Cruz, who went to the extreme when he was asked what he would do to the Affordable Care Act.
Actually, by him using the metaphor of execution, he paints a very vivid scene which has him taking the ACA, relocating it somewhere out of sight, then, putting two bullets in the back of its head.
When described this way, how is anyone he’s describing that to not going to see exactly the scene he’s describing for what it is? Surely no one in their right mind is actually visualizing a document with a head drawn on it and Ted Cruz actually firing two bullets into the illustration, through a stack of paper as if it would actually destroy the mandate.
He’s also not describing a scene where the ACA is defeated through the system, decided on by people.
Because we all know it’s conservatives who renamed the Affordable Care Act ‘Obamacare’ since the beginning, symbolizing the figure in the White House they’ve made a business out of opposing.
And it wasn’t like people were prepared for his vivid description in order to not see it for what it actually is, a fantasy that Ted Cruz has of walking the president into the alley way to commit that very act.
So this is where we’re at now.
We’re now at a point where people who are so obsessed with guns want to be able to go to a Starbucks with one or a few of them on, or take over a federal building armed to ‘defend’ themselves in case armed authorities force them out, or go to stand outside of a mosque in the middle of the day, armed, just ‘in case something happens’ or even, going to a Planned Parenthood location to ‘take a stand’ against abortion, want us to accept that as normal.
Even worse is that Ted Cruz’s fantasy, should he become the nominee, is nurtured by a political terrorist-insurgency who treat and possibly willingly support that fantasy as if it were a normal thing and no one’s going to do anything about it?
Way to go America.
