Just days after Dylann Roof opened fire in one of our country’s first African American churches, killing nine people, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) cracked few gun control jokes in Iowa. Cruz has done this sort of thing before, so this isn’t new. “You know the great thing about the state of Iowa is, I’m pretty sureā€¦

    “It’s sad to see the Democrats take a horrific crime and try to use it
    as an excuse, not to go after people with serious mental illness or
    people who are repeat felons or criminals,

    The Charleston shooter wasn’t mentally ill, he was perfectly sane and planned out this attack months in advance.

    “I’ll tell you, it’s reminiscent of Rahm Emanuel who said you can never let a good crisis go to waste,” Cruz said.

    Has Cruz forgotten how the Republicans politicized the hell out of 9/11/01 to get into Iraq and keep Bush in office? Or how they’ve politicized Benghazi to try and get Romney elected and keep Hillary Clinton from being elected?

      Republicans politicize deaths of Americans?…
      (cough) Benghazi…

      • granpa.usthai June 21st, 2015 at 11:30 pm

        don’t understand how you guys can just Benghazi when it;s suppose to be:



    • granpa.usthai June 21st, 2015 at 11:33 pm

      not only was it planned in advance, the escape part hardly fits the actions of anyone with serious mental illness.
      Enough sanity to get off the Interstate when an alert was issued yet continue on his trek to Tennessee via the secondary roads.

    “pass the lord and praise the ammunition”…

    • Wisdom & Victory June 21st, 2015 at 9:00 pm

      That sums it up perfectly! Bravo!

  3. Carla Akins June 21st, 2015 at 8:14 pm

    Sensitivity, it’s not high on their priority list.

    • StoneyCurtisll June 21st, 2015 at 8:18 pm

      What Ted needs is a punch in the throat…;)

      • Dwendt44 June 21st, 2015 at 8:22 pm

        Or at least his big fat nose.

      • Wisdom & Victory June 21st, 2015 at 8:59 pm

        And then a swift kick in the groin!

        • crc3 June 22nd, 2015 at 9:53 am

          Then a kick in the face after he is bent over grabbing his crotch…

  4. StoneyCurtisll June 21st, 2015 at 8:16 pm

    here is what that old tune is all about…

    • StoneyCurtisll June 21st, 2015 at 8:17 pm

      More guns…
      More bullets.. and we will all be free~!…
      Cause War is a splendid endeavor…
      For those who profit off it.

      • granpa.usthai June 21st, 2015 at 11:27 pm

        you’ll never be truly free until you have a pressure release device under your thumb that’s hardwired to a Czar 100 Nuclear Arm.

    • StoneyCurtisll June 21st, 2015 at 8:26 pm

      I couldnt help but notice 2:06 seconds into that clip it showed a US solider with a flame thrower..
      The mortality rate for soldiers with flame throwers was 90-95%..
      The weapon they carried made them the target of choice by the men who most feared being burned too death…

      • granpa.usthai June 21st, 2015 at 11:25 pm

        still, flame throwers are also a part of the 2nd Amendment Right to keep and bear Arms. Any law that prevents or hinders any American from walking into a store and buying one with or without knowledge of how to use it is unconstitutional and infringes on those who choose flame throwers over firearms.

  5. Sydney June 21st, 2015 at 8:19 pm

    Yeah…never liked the guy.

  6. Wisdom & Victory June 21st, 2015 at 8:43 pm

    And remember, Cruz is the guy made a joke about Joe Biden before Biden’s son Beau was even laid to rest after his untimely death.

    No normal person is that stupid, callous, or insensitive –Cruz is a sociopath.

  7. robert June 21st, 2015 at 8:46 pm

    lindsey and ted like the same crappy m-16

    is it too late to include short videos with the question at debates

    • granpa.usthai June 21st, 2015 at 11:38 pm

      bet neither of them would have the balls to shoot someone standing in front of them hardwired to a Nuclear Arm with a pressure release trigger!

      very few (if any) gun nuts do.

      It’s about as safe and as free as you can get in America.

      • robert June 22nd, 2015 at 10:47 pm

        i doubt that gun is accurate enough to shoot someone in front of you.

        dog and pony shows don’t always have a dog and pony in them

  8. StoneyCurtisll June 21st, 2015 at 10:01 pm

    Here is the punch line to the joke……”Ted Cruze”

  9. Larry Schmitt June 21st, 2015 at 11:17 pm

    You should go on tour with that act, Cruz. You really kill.

  10. granpa.usthai June 21st, 2015 at 11:21 pm

    can those who support keeping and bearing Nuclear Arms count on Cruz for support, or will they have to carry the weight of upholding and defending their 2nd Amendment Rights via private contracts with foreign agents?

    why don’t the US Government auction some of it’s Nuclear Arms off to help reduce national debt and make our streets a lot safer in the process?

  11. CandideThirtythree June 22nd, 2015 at 3:09 am

    70 people showed up to hear that clown? I bet most of that 70 were reporters. Meanwhile it is standing room only at Bernie’s events.

  12. Warman1138 June 22nd, 2015 at 8:51 am

    Cruz is just a greedy, privileged wolf trying to appear as something human with a conscience.

    • crc3 June 22nd, 2015 at 9:49 am

      I can’t stand to even look at the idiot much less hear what he says. That also goes for the rest of the Repulsives’ so called “presidential candidates”….

      • allison1050 June 22nd, 2015 at 3:33 pm

        You’ll change your mind when their debates begin…it’s going to be nothing but High Entertainment. Have your eats and treats at the ready. ;o)

  13. labman57 June 22nd, 2015 at 10:30 am

    It’s totally inappropriate to have a serious discussion about gun control so soon after the tragic events in Charleston … but it’s never too early to crack a few cheap jokes about it.

  14. Bunya June 22nd, 2015 at 2:10 pm

    Two things we need to remember:
    1) It IS, after all, Ted Cruz (not the sharpest tool in the shed)
    2) He IS from Texas
    ’nuff said.

  15. allison1050 June 22nd, 2015 at 3:32 pm

    He’s beyond tacky.
