Ted Cruz Lies to Fox News that Democrats are ‘Encouraging Violence’ After Roe v Wade Ruling

In the wake of the appalling assault on the Constitution by the Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe vs Wade, Republicans and their mouthpieces in right-wing media immediately set out to malign pro-choice advocates and protesters. It was a coordinated strategy to deflect from the fact that the vast majority of the American people oppose the decision and are committed to correcting the historic and unprecedented legal blunder.

Fox News, Bullshit Factory

Naturally, Fox News was at the forefront of this propaganda crusade to slander peaceful protesters. And part of their plan included bringing on Sen. Ted Cruz to fabricate a phony chronicle of events. Cruz, of course, complied by spinning this utterly fictional account…

“I think there’s a real risk of violence. We’ve seen multiple Democrats now, including Maxine Waters, before that Chuck Schumer, before that the Biden White House, effectively encouraging violence. Chuck Schumer stood on the steps of the Supreme Court and threatened Justice Kavanaugh and Justice Gorsuch by name.”

There was no truth to anything Cruz was saying. Certainly no Democrats were doing anything that could be characterized as “encouraging violence.” Cruz’s comments were all out of context references from months or years ago. For instance, Chuck Schumer, reacting to a Court hearing on an abortion case, said in March of 2020 that Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh “have released the whirlwind and will pay the price.” That was more than two years ago. And Schumer even acknowledged at the time that “I shouldn’t have used the words I did, but in no way was I making a threat. […] My point was there would be political consequences.”

That concession was something that you would never hear from the Republicans fomenting violence, such as what occurred during the insurrection on January 6, 2021. But Cruz dredged up this old remark specifically to defame the pro-choice movement.

Cruz was joined in this campaign by Tucker Carlson who, following the Roe decision, said on his program that “Today you saw several elected members of Congress call for insurrection.” No, actually, no one saw that. But Carlson’s canard is reminiscent of his preposterous assertion that Stephen Colbert had engaged in insurrection when some of his staff performed a comedy routine in Washington.

Since the ruling was announced, the manufactured narrative from the ultra-MAGA politicians and pundits that pro-choice activists are engaging in an “insurrection” has just become more intense and bizarre. It’s a deliberately dishonest strategy contrived to both malign peaceful protesters and to trivialize the term that describes Donald Trump’s attempted coup on January 6th. And the GOP is stridently going even farther down the rabid hole. What follows are some examples of the wholly dishonest ravings of a desperate band of bullshitters:

  1. The REAL Insurrection was what those lying, evil, bastards did on January 6th. Ted Cruz is just another piece of garbage that lies and projects just like the rest of the GQP Mafia does. THEY are the terrorists and i can just hope they get what’s coming to them very soon. The GQP is a very harmful blight on society that needs to be eradicated.

  2. John, we’ll know soon enough (the 2022 mid-terms) if any or even many of the despicable Repugnicans will be voted out of office, as they would be in any civilised country.

    • That’s why we need to prosecute Trump before the mid-terms.

    • That is so true. In a civilised Nation a large percentage of these lower than scum Rethugs would be in tucked away in a prison cell for what they have done over the past few years. Aside from my immediate family, none of my MAGA relatives have anything to do with me any longer. You know what? I don’t give a damn if they NEVER EVER come near me any longer, they can all go to hell as far as i am concerned, they are nothing to me any longer. Financially, i am nearing my goal of having enough money to leave the United States for good. It seems there is no hope any longer. I am sick of living here…The upcoming Middle terms will determine if i stay here in the USA. It’s extremely sad that the United States has went this far down the rabid hole. I am too old for all of this…

  3. Ted Cruz and other rightwing thugs of his ilk deserve the maximum sentence of 99 years for bein g an traitor although it would be my preference to read their obituaries in the morning paper.

  4. Ted Cruz and other rightwing thugs of his ilk deserve the maximum sentence of 99 years for being an American traitor although it would be my preference to read their obituaries in the morning paper.

    • That would be my preference also. The obituaries of every one of them.. In all of my 67 years, i have never felt so much hate for a criminal organization as the Rethugs are. Ted Cruz is among the worst.

  5. Yes, it’s getting bad, rethugs trying hard to come up with terrible statements.
    But I have always disliked Ted Cruz in particular. Whether it be his booming loud lurid interview in the Senate of Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter at the time. Or the bootlicking of Trump. Or ingratiating truck drivers. Or his flight to Cacun during the freezing cold in Texas brought on by storm and power outages. Or his idiotic statements and behavior during Uvalde. Ted Cruz, across between Sasquatch and Shrek, looks 100 lbs. heavier. Food to assuage unpleasant feelings, I guess.

  6. These ridiculous statements by the far right may have the excuse that they do not display any intelligence at all. Except for Marjorie Taylor Moore. She is plain nuts.

    • i keep saying moore. it’s greene, who is nothing like mary tyler moore.

  7. Hopefully, someone has told cancun cruz, repeatedly, on ALL his social media accounts, that he is in fact FULL of s*it.
