[crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] believes that, “The overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats.”

Appearing on the Hugh Hewitt Show on Monday, Cruz claimed the Colorado Planned Parenthood shooting “has really displayed the ugly underbelly of the media. You know, every time you have some sort of violent crime or mass killing, you can almost see the media salivating, hoping, hoping, desperately that the murderer happens to be a Republican so they can use it to try to paint their political enemies.”

“Now listen, here’s the simple and undeniable fact. The overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats,” insisted Cruz. “The media doesn’t report that. What they report, and there’s a reason why the Democrats for years have been viewed as soft on crime because they go in and they appoint to the bench judges who release violent criminals, they go in and they do what Barack Obama tried to do, which is appoint a lawyer who voluntarily represented for free, a cop killer to a senior Justice Department position.”

Cruz explained that Democrats “fight to give the right to vote to convicted felons, why, because the Democrats know that convicted felons tend to vote Democrat.”

“And so the media never reports on any of that, doesn’t want to admit any of that, but you can see in every one of these, every time there is a terrible crime, they are so excited, come on, please, one of these be a Republican so that we can try to paint the other side,” lamented Cruz. “It is one of the more egregious examples of media bias and it is something that we see over and over and over again.”
