WATCH: Debunking anti-Cruz myths (video)

Ted Cruz AG hearing

Ted Cruz grills Justice Department for targeting gun owners with ‘Operation Choke Point’ via TruthandAction.org

There are quite a few rumors floating around in social media about Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz.

Americans are used to the mainstream media lying about Ted Cruz (see here, here & here for just some examples.) But it is particularly painful when the lies come from supposed truth-tellers. The largest culprits starting and perpetuating anti-Cruz falsehoods are sundance of the Conservative Treehouse and Dianne Marshall of the Marshall Report. They blatantly lie, or tell cherry-picked half truths, which are promptly disseminated in social media by an army of bullies who are seemingly not interested in civil debate.

Why create false stories if the candidate is so bad?

The clearly coordinated effort is particularly disturbing because: 1.) it frankly smashes conventional wisdom that ad hominem baseless attacks are the tool of the left – not the principled right, and 2.) the social media bullies may serve to intimidate people from posting positive stories or opinions about Ted Cruz.

Here are some of the most persistent lies, myths and rumors about Ted Cruz:

Our Weasel Of The Week!! – 02/11/16

The Watcher’s Council

Yes, it’s time to present this week’s Statuette of Shame, The Golden Weasel!!

Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the Statuette of Shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were particularly slimy and despicable, but only one of them could win… and the votes are in and we have our winner… the envelope please…

The Ultra-sensitive Baby Killing Warriors At NARAL!!

The Right Planet: My nominee for Weasel of the Week would have to be the far-left, militant pro-abortion group NARAL (National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League) for their epic intersectional meltdown on Twitter over a Doritos Super Bowl ad that featured a pregnant woman receiving an ultrasound. NARAL was severely “microaggressed” over the Dororitos commercial for deploying the ever-dreaded “antichoice” tactic of “humanizing fetuses.” Apparently human fetuses are too humany, or something.

Oh, but it didn’t end there, oh dear masses. The perpetually aggrieved social justice warriors at NARAL also took great umbrage over the blatant patriarchal oppression embedded in a Hyundai ad. Additionally, NARAL called out Snickers for their despicable “transphobic” objectification of women. Will the exploitation and oppression ever end?


Personally, I think NARAL needs to chillax and eat a Snickers. They’re delicious, and gender-neutral … not to mention nutty. Just like NARAL.

Nice Deb: I nominate NARAL for going on an unhinged Twitter rampage during the Super Bowl over the commercials.

During the big game yesterday, NARAL’s Twitter account “live-tweeted” reactions to the highly anticipated Super Bowl commercials, exposing themselves yet again to be the angry, humorless scolds we all know them to be. The pro-abortion outfit chastised advertisers over the most micro of “microaggressions” and their SJW followers on Twitter retweeted their complaints.

In their most absurd Tweet, they attacked Doritos for showing an Ultrasound image image of a baby.

The Doritos ad in question showed a father eating Doritos while his pregnant wife received an ultrasound. The baby reacts strongly to the Doritos whenever Dad gets close with a chip. At the end, the baby physically launches itself out of the womb to try to get Doritos.

NARAL denounced the Doritos ad for using the ” #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses & sexist tropes of dads as clueless, moms as uptight.”

That’s right, they were upset because Doritos had the presumption to characterize a human baby as… human.

These abortion fanatics are particularly soulless and ghoulish weasels – but weasels nonetheless.

Ahh… not that it matters, but I neither watch the Superbowl or eat Doritos, nor do I particularly care about either one. But what I do very much care about is the innate perversity of those who somehow managed to find a right to gay marriage in the US Constitution but were unable to find a right to life for a baby. Perhaps that’s because unlike NARAL or same sex activists, children still in the womb are unable to bribe politicians or vote.

Oddly, the same folks who vociferously insist that same sex marriage ‘doesn’t hurt anyone’ and that it’s simply a matter of free choice, get quite purple in the face when anyone suggests the same about a child in the womb waiting to be born. Or that trafficking in the body parts of these infants is something the government ought to be funding, which is another reason groups like NARAL and Planned Parenthood become literally choking with rage when anyone has the temerity to suggest that a fetus, even one due to emerge from the womb in a matter of days is actually human. After all, these people have a living to make, even if it involves living off off the sale of other people’s bodies… also known in another context as the pimp’s rationale.

Our president, of course, takes this one step further and actually supports infanticide, a place too far for even NARAL to be willing to go.

Again, another confession. I am not someone who thinks abortion ought to be outlawed totally. Non-consensual sex happens, health issues can intervene and sometimes people make mistakes who simply haven’t the means or maturity to have a child at a given time in life. That’s why I’ve always liked the idea of the morning after pill, which prevents conception.

But that’s very different from making an industry, let alone a government funded industry, out of killing healthy babies, especially ones older than twenty weeks who have a fully developed nervous system and can experience the pain of what’s happening to them. If NARAL was actually composed of people who cared at all about human decency, they’d be complaining about that horrific situation instead of a stupid commercial.

Enjoy your Weasel, NARAL. It’s richly deserved.

Well, there it is.
