By Dr. Patrick Slattery — Texas Senator and Zio-Teaparty presidential aspirant Ted Cruz was invited by the group “In Defense of Christians” to deliver the keynote address for their national gathering, but he promptly told them “If you will not stand with Israel and the Jews, then I will not stand with you,” and walked off the stage.
The group largely consists of Christians of Middle Eastern background. Christianity, of course, started in the Middle East and continues to be practiced by millions of descendants from these original communities in Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, and Iraq.
Cruz’s keynote speech launched into pro-Israel nonsense from the get go, and although initially tolerated, some in attendance started calling out Cruz’s bullhonk when he claimed that Christians “have no greater ally than Israel.”
Cruz responded with a load of even more fertile Zio-manure before retreating from the state. He said “Those who hate Israel hate America. Those who hate Jews hate Christians,” and accused his detractors of being “consumed with hate.”
And then after the event, he predictably accused those who objected to his blatant lies of anti-Semitism. “Anti-Semitism is a corrosive evil, and it reared its ugly head tonight,” he spewed.
Curious to see how the media would handle the event, I looked for commentary. Normally, I would not seek out analysis from MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, but I was curious how this Jewish supremacist who makes a living promoting an artificial left-right schism would respond to a hated tea-party conservative boldly defending her beloved Jews-only terrorist state.
Actually, she found an angle that was anti-Cruz without having to acknowledge the absurdity of his claims. Maddow wrote on her blog that:
As he readies a national campaign, the right-wing senator now has a new talking point. “See how pro-Israel I am?” Cruz can now boast. “I tried to tell those Middle Easterners the truth, they booed me, and I didn’t back down an inch.”It was an ugly scene, but for Cruz, it’s quite possible this was a deliberately ugly scene, instigated on purpose to advance the senator’s ambitions.
She very well may be correct that Cruz engineered the confrontation in order to please his Zio-overloads and open the floodgates of Jewish supremacist megabucks for his 2016 presidential campaign.
But it is also very telling that Cruz, the champion of the “right” and Maddow, the darling of the “left,” march in lock step in advancing Jewish supremacist interests.
