Rafael Cruz: Diversity ‘The Opposite Of What Made America Great’
Where else could a person born in Canada with an Hispanic last name come to America and run for president? In a country that is against diversity!
In an address to an anti-Common Core rally in the early GOP primary state of South Carolina in February, Rafael Cruz warned that the Common Core education standards are a Hitler-like plan for “brainwashing” children.
Cruz’s son, presidential candidate and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, has made “repealing” the academic standards a key plank of his campaign, even though they are adopted by states and not part of any federal statute that can be repealed. The elder Cruz told the group, South Carolina Parents Involved in Education, that “Common Core is not about education, Common Core is about control.”
“In Nazi Germany, Hitler said, ‘Give me the children and I will rule the world.’ That’s what’s behind Common Core,” he said. “It’s brainwashing of our children, it’s changing and destroying the foundations that have made America the greatest country on the face of the earth.”
…After warning that government “brainwashing” is bringing about the “destruction of our Judeo-Christian foundation” and “our religious liberty,” Cruz blasted “the concept of ‘diversity,’” which he called “totally opposite of what made America great.”
“Diversity is the opposite of the melting pot,” he continued. “It is just trying to divide everybody into a series of little groups that all become something else than Americans, that all are being portrayed as victims of an evil society, and as victims they have no choice but become dependent on almighty government.”

Looks like Teddy already has his albatross.

Better living through chemistry!
No, wait, that’s Dow Chemical’s motto, or was.
Another one that comes to mind is “I used to be disgusted, now I’m just amused.”
Sobriety can be overrated. I NEED to be stoned from time to time.
I’m getting ready for another great way to cope – I’m going sailing!
One way I like to do it is at night where there are few people ashore and with just the sound of the boat swishing through the water and the luffing of the sails when I get too close to the wind, it is extraordinarily peaceful and soothing. We’ll be cruising along experiencing those waters the same way the early settlers experienced them 400 years ago.
Then we get somewhere, drop the hook and let the party begin.
If you see the boat a-rockin’, don’t bother knockin’!

I also enjoy being stoned from time to time, but I am happiest surrounded by puppies going on a hike 🙂

Ted didn’t fall far from the whacky tree.

wow! no wonder the Cuban was born in Canada. I bet his daddy’s sex life was about as hot as a sweltering mid-winter’s daynight in Lake Hazen.

“Hyphenated-Americans” blah blah blah blah, one of the longest-running crypto-fascist tropes in reactionary Ultra-Right politics

Rafael Cruz, the zealot pastor daddy of Ted Cruz. is one of the leaders of Christian Dominionism who’s goal is the transformation of this country into a theocratic state based upon their strict biblical interpretation.

I wonder what Cruz does on St. Patrick’s Day.
I bet that one just pisses him off.
Same with the Chinese New Year when they have those parades with the great big dragon coming down the street…

I guess as a Jew, since I don’t worship Jesus, I’m part of the problem, according to Cruz.

Of course. Rafael blasts diversity, right after invoking Hitler. Because we all know that Hitler was all about diversity…
