Cruz Delivers epic smack down to media, says “ISIS is executing homosexuals- You want to talk about gay rights?”
By Michael Cantrell Via Young Conservatives-
One of the big “gotcha” questions liberal media bozos constantly try to pull on conservative presidential candidates is on the issue of same-sex marriage.
This, of course, is to make hardcore conservative candidates — most of which are strong Christians — look like bigots who hate gays, which isn’t true, but modern journalists have never allowed the truth to get in the way of pushing an agenda.
What’s hilarious is how liberal journalists will constantly bash the snot out of conservatives for being “anti-gay,” meanwhile ISIS is executing homosexuals left and right, yet no one is saying anything about it.
From Truth Revolt:
After a string of questions on his opinion on same-sex marriage and gay rights, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) called out the left and the leftist media (particularly MSNBC) for “obsess[ing]” over opinions on sexuality while “ISIS is executing homosexuals.”
The comments came during a campaign stop Tuesday in Beaumont, where Cruz met with county officials and other local leaders to discuss his positions on foreign policy, promoting economic growth, and defending the Constitution. When reporters began to ask him about his views on same-sex marriage, Cruz called out the left and the media for what he characterized as a myopic perspective on gay rights (transcript via Texas Tribune):
CRUZ: Is there something about the left—and I am going to put the media in this category—that is obsessed with sex? ISIS is executing homosexuals—you want to talk about gay rights? This week was a very bad week for gay rights because the expansion of ISIS, the expansion of radical, theocratic, Islamic zealots that crucify Christians, that behead children and that murder homosexuals—that ought to be concerning you far more than asking six questions all on the same topic.
Cruz specifically worked in a dig at MSNBC, saying, “With respect, I would suggest not drawing your questions from MSNBC. They have very few viewers and they are a radical and extreme partisan outlet.”
Someone is going to need a little burn cream after that one, yes sir.
Cruz truly nailed these folks to the wall, and as usual, showed how a man of conviction handles ridiculously biased media without getting super angry and losing credibility, an important trait to anyone who wants to sit in the Oval Office.
The media’s obvious hypocrisy on the topic of gay rights is pretty clear to anyone with a brain. If you’re truly concerned about homosexual rights, then why aren’t you calling for an end to the brutal executions taking place in Muslim led countries?
Is it because of fear? Or because of a deeply flawed understanding of how the world works and a refusal to acknowledge real, senseless evil exists in the world?
Regardless, Cruz demonstrated here that he’s not afraid of taking it to the media, which means the next year is going to be very, very interesting.
