Now Ted Cruz is getting death threats

Font Size:

Yep, the ongoing demonization campaign by our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left is really paying off.

Alexander Bolton, The Hill:

Law enforcement officials are investigating a threat against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who was vaulted into national prominence with his push to defund ObamaCare.

A person identifying himself as Troy Gilmore Jr., posted on Twitter Friday morning: “Take down Ted Cruz, at his home” and listed Cruz’s home address in Houston…

The author of the threat uses the Twitter handle @ArmyVet54 and identifies himself as having served in the U.S. Army and Navy…

At about 5:30 pm on Friday, @ArmyVet54 posted another apparent threat, urging that Cruz “needs tobe [sic] taught a street wise [sic] lesson”.

The person posted Cruz’s home address several other times this month and repeatedly used threatening language.

Well, Cruz should’ve thought about that before he resisted the will of King Barry the First, right?

Hat tip to John Nolte, who notes:

In the last couple of weeks the hate speech directed at Cruz from the elite media has been merciless. Politico mused about drowning Cruz; The Washington Post compared Cruz to an evil, mass-murdering terrorist – “Ted Bin Laden”; a writer for The New Yorker compared Cruz to O.J. Simpson. The media have also made Cruz the face of a movement they have described as a bunch of racists “wearing suicide vests” and “taking hostages.”

Mind you, this is just what the elite media have been saying. President Obama and top Democrats have been just as bad.

Meet the New Tone. Same as the Old Tone. Hey, it’s not like this guy put up a campaign map with crosshairs symbols on it.

Who among the Democrats and the mainstream media (PTR) will be the first to condemn this hate speech they’ve engendered?

Don’t all jump up at once, guys…
