The Apple Doesn’t Fall Too Far From The Cruz Family Tree

Rafael and Ted Cruz

It should really come as no surprise, but Rafael Cuz, the father of Senator and Anti-Obamacare Crusader Ted Cruz, is a little nuts.

Since his son’s rise to political fame, the Cuban-born evangelical minister Rafael Cruz, has been out and about promoting his son as a “political savior” and spewing other words of wisdom.

During his son’s Senate campaign last year, Rafael Cruz told a tea party group he thinks President Barack Obama is an “outright Marxist” who “seeks to destroy all concept of God.” He then urged the audience to send him “back to Kenya.” Interesting choice of words coming from an actual Cuban immigrant who actually fought for Communist Fidel Castro in the Cuban Revolution and has a Canadian-born son

In other clips found of the elder Cruz, he can be seen declaring America a “Christian Nation” and blasting Obama for being on the side of the Muslims.

Now, everyone gets embarrassed by the crap that their parents say every now and then – but not Ted Cruz. He considers his father a political asset and often cites the Cuban-born Rafael Cruz as an example of the American dream (the LEGAL American dream) when discussing immigration. And Ted Cruz doesn’t just use his father’s story for political gain – he also campaigns with him and lets him speak to tea party and Republican groups in Texas as his replacement.

Rafael Cruz has now because a Tea Party idol in his own right – and his craziness, extreme conservatism, and Christian fundamentalism show no signs of stopping. Just a few weeks ago he told a gathering of Republicans in Colorado that Obamacare mandates “suicide counseling” for the elderly, and that gay marriage is a plot to make “government your god.”

This explains a lot about Ted Cruz… I don’t think the apple even left the tree.
