When 140 Characters Isn't Enough
Despite my efforts to guide him to conservative media, Dad still gets his news from the MSM. He's a fan of Don Lemon at CNN. Consequently, Dad has been taught by the MSM that all opposition to leftists implementing their liberal socialist/progressive agenda is racism or hate.
While I was on the stepping machine at the gym, one of the TVs was on CNN. CNN featured numerous panel discussions purposed to portray Trump as a racist, ignorant SOB for suggesting a temporary ban on Muslims entering our country. The truth is, there is historical precedent for Trump's proposal. It is a commonsense precaution to protect Americans. Still, the MSM foolishly hoped Trump's Muslim ban proposal would be the final nail in his presidential hopeful coffin.
I told Dad that despite the MSM's best efforts to destroy Trump, his poll numbers continue to skyrocket.
I offered Dad a parable. Imagine that you are starving. A gruff, burly, unbathed biker comes along and gives you food. You would ignore the biker's rough edges and foul odor, right? Dad said, “Yes, I would say praise the Lord.” I said, “Dad, the American people are starving for a renewal of America's greatness.” I recited a list of Obama's lies and anti-American policies. I informed Dad to how voters have been betrayed by Republicans, reneging on their vow to push back against Obama's lawless implementation of his socialist/progressive agenda.
So along comes Donald Trump, promising starving Americans a feast of renewed American greatness. Starving, excited voters, with forks in hand, ready to eat, crossing all demographics, have taken a seat at Trump's table.I explained to Dad that Ted Cruz is Donald Trump without the slightly unpleasant smell. Please do not get me wrong, folks. I am not dissing Trump. I am merely interjecting a bit of humor. I would enthusiastically give Trump my vote if he became the GOP presidential nominee.
We see Loretta Lynch, the attorney general, promising in the wake of this terrorist attack – does she come out and say, 'We're going to track down the terrorists and kill them'? No, she says prosecute anyone that has the temerity to stand up and speak against radical Islamic terrorism.Then Cruz jumped onto Obama's case, addressing his absurd, arrogant accusation.
Well, let me tell you right now, radical Islamic terrorism is evil.
Mr. President, there is not a moral equivalence between radical Islamic terrorists and Christians and Jews. One has a philosophy from day one of murdering those who they consider infidels; the other preach love and forgiveness and standing together as one humanity.
And let me say beyond that in the United States, we will not enforce sharia Law.
And Madam Attorney General, if you wanna come prosecute me for executing my First Amendment rights, come and get me. I'm right here!
Folks, if that doesn't get your blood going and have you standing up and cheering, nothing will. Cruz's rant was bold and yet dignified, morally straight, and presidential.
Donald Trump is Mr. Right Now. Sen. Ted Cruz is the real-deal Mr. Right – prayerfully, our next Mr. President.
