Ted Cruz: Democrat Party “radicalized and extreme”

In an insightful dialogue with Breitbart News, recently declared GOP Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) focuses on assaults to religious liberty. He notes the modern Democrat Party is “so radicalized and so extreme” that it won’t stand up for the most basic tenets of the U.S. Constitution, including religious liberty as afforded by the First Amendment.

This exclusive interview needs to be read. The 2016 presidential election is rapidly approaching. Candidate interviews such as this provide us with the necessary information we need to make informed decisions. No candidate —- or the ultimate nominee —- will meet each of our standards, but we are living in perilous times and need solid leadership. After living through the Obama regime it’s obvious that must be provided by a Republican. Whether that person is Ted Cruz or someone else, this is the time to glean facts.

Readers of this site might recall the September 2012 post titled “Chaos reigns as Dems boo God, Jeer Jerusalem,” during their national convention. It’s worth reviewing and watching the accompanying video detailing the mockery of what most  Americans view as fundamental. It was not an occasional radical liberal delegate who jeered and booed the mention of God. It was a clear majority. The resulting embarrassment of the party leadership required them to take a recount. They needed three! They also fudged the results.

Sen. Ted Cruz correctly defines the shallowness of today’s Democrat Party.

    My parents were Democrats. They raised us in a church going family and taught us the value of education and hard work to achieve our goals. Cruz correctly describes the “modern” Democrats and their party. It’s not the one my parents would have been comfortable with. I’ve often thought how ashamed they would have been if they had witnessed the decline into a nanny state led by a president who has no respect for the Constitution and is intent on “transforming” the United State of America, a country they both cherished and my dad and his brothers fought for.

    That video in the linked post is mind blowing! I’d never seen that before.

  3. SmallGovt says:

    He is partially right because BOTH parties have radical and extreme elements.

    • East Valley Conservative says:

      A few questions….
      What do you see as “radical and extreme elements’ in the Republican Party relating to the Constitutional issue of religious liberty Cruz was discussing?
      How do those elements that offend you so much compare in intensity to those of the Democrats?
      What party are you registered with and why?

    white liberal democrats are no threat nationally or here in arizona there numbers are not changing. In arizona 35,000 american citizen minorities turn 18 voting age every year. For the country its 1,200,000 million minorities turn voting age every year. This is what you should fear.

    • Dennis O'Brien says:

      What are you talking about? They helped elect the worst president in our nation’s history. Obama has indebted our great-grandchildren and theirs, shredded the US Constitution and makes nuclear deals with lunatic Muslim leaders of rogue countries who shout “Death to America” and threaten to destroy Israel.

      which is exactly why ALL illegals need to be shipped out of the country, stop anchor babies, and immigration needs to be stopped until we have achieved some sort of assimilation, which would take decades.
      *poof* problem solved

    Right now, my choice is Ted Cruz precisely because he calls out the Democrats as “so radicalized and so extreme” and the above video shows that. The Democrat party has even gotten worse since then, with Obama free to do what he wants in his second term.

    I copied this from a poster on Ted Cruz:

    “Cruz graduated from Princeton, top of the class. He was the ‘smartest’ law student Allen Dershowitz has ever taught at Harvard Law School. (And yes, you can see his grades everywhere he attended!) He served as Texas Atty Gen. and argued 9 cases before the Supreme Court. How does that compare to the community organizer-in-chief in the White House now? ”

    Along with being capable and competent, he knows and respects the Constitution. We may end up with a lightweight as the GOP nominee (remember McCain?) – but we’d have passed up a chance to put somebody in there who is fit for the job and would keep us from going over the edge.

    If left to Karl Rove and the GOP leadership – they’ll support the one who will “obey” the agenda. Ted Cruz won’t fall in line.

      so then you are fine with amnesty and illegals taking jobs from americans citizens (not to mention govt benefits, schools etc…) and massive increases in foreigners to take even more jobs from American citizens?

  6. azgary says:

    sorry no anti-American citizen aka pro amnesty candidates wanted. if there is none available that say illegals must get out by choice or by force they do not deserve a vote, and cruz is sadly pro amnesty

    people need to wake up to the fact that republican amnesty is no different than democrat amnesty, obamas amnesty is no different than mccains, which is no different than walker or cruz’s and don’t be fooled by those arguments that legalization is any different than citizenship, all will end with the same net result eventually; a permanent democrat voting majority, the end of the middle class and our nation. Illegals leaving the country by choice or by force is the ONLY acceptable solution:

    “What has not been as evident is what he supports: legal status for millions of people here already, while making it easier for immigrants to come here through the front door.
    Asked about what to do with the people here illegally, however, he stressed that he had never tried to undo the goal of allowing them to stay.
    “The amendment that I introduced removed the path to citizenship, but it did not change the underlying work permit from the Gang of Eight,” he said during a recent visit to El Paso. Cruz also noted that he had not called for deportation or, as Mitt Romney famously advocated, self-deportation.
    “I have said many times that I want to see common-sense immigration reform pass,” he said. “I think most Americans want to see the problem fixed.”
    But for Cruz, a Tea Party favorite who represents a state with rapidly changing demographics, finding common ground will not be easy. Many of the bedrock Tea Party supporters who helped elect him are immigration hard-liners who object to even the slightest nod toward amnesty, a loaded word that generally means providing an avenue for legal residency to people who entered the United States illegally. Such conservatives tend to favor mass deportation, or “self-deportation,” for the millions of undocumented immigrants”

      “Ted Cruz’s campaign: He hasn’t ruled out legal status for illegals
      Ted Cruz, Mr. Conservative, also supported legalization in the form of work permits as recently as 2013? How can Ted Cruz be the “anti-amnesty” candidate in the field when his position — at least as of two years ago — is basically indistinguishable from Walker’s and (gasp) Jeb Bush’s?
      Sarlin went to Team Cruz with a question. Does he still support work permits for illegals or, like Walker, has he shifted further to the right just in time for the GOP primaries? Answer: Yep, he’s still on the legalization express.
      campaign spokeswoman Catherine Frazier said that the senator has been “consistent” and confirmed that the views he expressed in the Tribune had not changed.”

    Cruz speaks well, does not lead . . . record in the Senate is zilch!

    “Religious liberty” as it were is on the chopping block just like everything else. The loudest opposing voices at the RFRA flaps in Indiana and Georgia came, in fact, from the Bardahl in the GOP’s engine – U.S. Chamber of Commerce member corporations. They backed down Republican Mike Pence. They backed down Republican Asa Hutchison. Slightly over one year ago they backed down Republican Jan Brewer.

    The CoC also wants legalization of a 30 million-strong cheap labor force. In the Senate Republicans will not unite to stop Obama’s amnesty. The CoC wants Common Core. In Arizona, Republicans will not unite to kill Common Core. What makes religious liberty opposed by the corporate costa nostra any different and how does installing a Republican president end financial blackmail/terrorism?

  9. LEO IN TSN says:

    Sen. Cruz actually has a great “record in the senate.” He has sponsored/co-sponsored at least several good bills intended to reign in the obamao out-of-control takeover. His bills, and other good bills from conservatives, haven’t seen any attention under Whorehouse Harry Reid and White-Flag McConnell. That’s all part of his “record in the senate.”

    Too bad some critics were unconscious when Sen. Cruz took it upon himself, with the help of a few other conservatives in Congress, to try to make a Congressional stand against the obamao transformation and willingly incurred the sanctimonious wrath of the McEstablishment RINOS who seem to have ready access to the media and the White Mosque. He stood at the front of the battlefield and watched the babbling RINOS run for the DC hills behind him, shooting at him as they scurried. Then he tried it again with a new Senate, and watched the quisling newbies disappear like fog on a sunny day. Sen. Cruz has shown and continues to show strong patriotic leadership in the face of anticipated criticism from the dino-RINOS and their attack-sycophants, and the dimocrat haters. That’s all part of his “record in the senate.”

    Too bad you missed it.

    God bless America.

      Good post. Thank you. Also, the news media won’t highlight Ted Cruz’s accomplishments. His new (first) ad is terrific.
