Rising Republican star Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) said that there are "twelve faculty members at Harvard Law School who want a communist overthrow of the government of the United States." Cruz is certain there are 12 communists not 11 as previously thought.
Rachel Maddow reported on Senator Cruz’s revelation of the communist cell on Friday.
Cruz was not available to appear on The Rachel Maddow Show because he is about to announce that 57 communists are on the faculty of the Chicago University Law School. Speculation is that Cruz discovered that former Chicago University law professor, Barack Obama, is one of the 57.
The Texas Republican was tipped off about the Chicago University infiltration by former Half-term Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK). She was the first to reveal that President Obama “palled around with terrorists”—a theme she used in numerous speeches in the 2008 campaign, but her alarm went generally unheeded until Cruz was elected.
Meanwhile, investigative journalist Stephen Colbert suggested that Obama’s nominee for Defense Secretary, Chuck Hagel, received money from a radical group—the Muslim Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (MSTP). Colbert launched his investigation after Cruz questioned a $200,000 check he suggested that Hagel might have received from Saudi Arabia or North Korea. Colbert found it was really from the MSTP.
Colbert’s investigation found that Hagel received money and support from the Friends of Hamas, and the Sons of Hezbollah—two other groups that never existed like the MSTP.
Bloggers' lies become Republican facts
If the first few paragraphs of this article make sense to you, you must be a RWNJ (Right Wing Nut Job). This is the exact type of phony journalism, however, that Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) repeats as though it is fact.
Unfortunately Senator Cruz did say, and probably still believes, that there are 12 communists at Harvard. After this article is published, some Republican Senator will talk about the communists in the University of Chicago.
Made up facts by a right-wing bloggers, Dean Chambers and Dick Morris convinced Republicans and Mitt Romney that polls were skewed and Republicans would win by a landslide. A made up story by another right wing blogger was repeated by Senator Paul when he said he was troubled by the fact Hagel received money from Friends of Hamas. There is no “Friends of Hamas.” The closest organization is the Friends of Hummus—a group of dip lovers.
Republicans wonder why their message does not resonate with voters. One reason is that over half the nation is too young to know what a communist is. The Cold War ended in 1989. It is doubtful if Senator Cruz himself would recognize a communist if he could find one.
Republicans say they have a messaging problem. That is the understatement of the millennium. The problem is that their skewed “message” is finding its way into the halls of the United States Senate. Senators like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are basing policy on right wing blogs with no factual base or basis in reality.
Negotiating a compromise with a RWNJ in Congress is like trying to convince a drunk he doesn’t need another round. That is the reason Congress is broken and compromise is a dirty word.
Governor Bobby Jindal said the GOP must stop being the “Stupid Party.” How is that working out for you Bobby?
