“I commend everyone here for respecting the biblical admonition to stand with Israel.”
(Ted Cruz closing his speech to CUFI in July of 2013)
Nothing like basing your foreign policy on a fairy tale.
Senator Ted Cruz (Likud, Texas), is a very intelligent, witty, and youthful whore for Israel. And as the US government is “shutdown” on Tuesday, that shutdown is being led by this whoring Israel-firster silver-tongued devil.
Cruz, who received $250 thousand from Sheldon Adelson (Adelson gave the same amount to Cruz’s primary opponent which tells you something), and is backed by the Koch-financed “Tea Party” has been pretty busy recently doing all in his power to prevent poor people from getting health care and to just plain fuck with Barack Obama. But he wasn’t so busy that he couldn’t introduce US Senate Resolution 252 whose very wording shows he cares more about Israel than he does the United States. Afterall, it’s the likes of Sheldon Adelson who support him.
The resolution makes two demands that Iran must meet before Barry could meet with Rouhani. In order those demands are:
- That Iran recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish State.
- That Iran release all US citizens who are prisoners of conscience in Iran.
So the very first thing that Rouhani has to do to meet with the President of the United States is that he has to recognize a third country as having the right to be a state based on bigotry.
Oh, and after that, it might be kind of nice if he’d let some prisoners of conscience who just happen to be Americans out of prison.
The only American one that I know of is Saeed Ibrahimi. There may be others. Whatever they may or may not have done, I put their freedom way over the right of Israel to be a state based in principle on bigotry.
But not Ted Cruz.
He wants to shut down the government and destroy people’s chances to get health care. And don’t write me letters about how fucked up Obama’s plan is. It is fucked up. It is the worst plan of any modern industrialized democratic country. It is also an improvement over what we have now. Our job is to make it better, not abort it. But Americans won’t because Americans are morons who vote for people like Ted Cruz.
You will get what you deserve.
2. And there’s the video to prove it. Ted Cruz getting his orders in Israel right after getting elected. Watch his head move up and down like a fucking bobblehead doll when Bibi is talking. This is your leadership.
