It started twenty-four hours ago, when Senator Cruz, in response to the latest bloody jihadist attack in Europe, the product of the Muslim invasion of the European Union, made several eminently commonsensical and practical recommendations:
1) Stop insisting we're not at war with Islamic Fundamentalists, because they're obviously at war with us;
2) Resume fighting this war, and fight it to win;
3) Actually vet all the Syrian "refugees" O insists on importing; (cutting off the influx - permanently - would be an even better idea)
4) Start surveilling, monitoring, and patrolling Muslim neighborhoods/communities, since they are the source of homegrown jihadists, and if we're going to take them in, that's the price of admission.
5) Stop pissily dismissing all of the above as "Islamophobia," because as Brussels reinforced yesterday, we really, truly, and genuinely do have a great deal to fear from Muslims - like death on a massive scale.
Illustrating yet again his thin-skinnedness and knee-jerk jihadi-sympathies, The One rushed out to call an impromptu presser to fart on Senator Cruz's presidential display with all the piss and vinegar that was conspicuously missing from his "seventh-inning stretch" dismissal of the Brussels attacks yesterday. But he did so in a particularly despicable way:
Obama invoked Cruz’s Cuban heritage, arguing the senator was ignoring the personal journey of his father, who fled the island nation for the United States to escape political oppression.
“I just left a country that engages in that kind of neighborhood surveillance, which by the way, the father of Senator Cruz escaped for America,” the president said. “The land of the free. The notion that we would start down that slippery slope makes absolutely no sense.” [emphases added]
Yeah, me too. Although you'd think we'd have gotten numb to his assholery by this time.
Let's tally this up: Cuba is a glorious worker's paradise that takes care of its poor and gives everybody healthcare and has no inequality and enjoys racial harmony and whose revolution was superior to America's when it's his foreign policy legacy that's at stake and he gets yet another opportunity to obsequiously trash his ostensibly "own" country before its enemies and the entire planet, but Cuba is a rotten, filthy, communist totalitarian despotic police state shithole when Ted Cruz dares criticize his imperial majesty's treasonous, lunatic aiding and abetting of the Global Jihad's onslaught against us and our allies because the Texas senator is of conveniently Cuban dissent. Did I leave out anything?
Good, because I still have several items on my disclosure list about the Obama Regime on these topics that he went out of his way to gratuitously link.
1) Even O's own pretentiously titled "Commissariat of Defense special envoy for Guantanamo closure" admitted in public congressional testimony today that countless Americans have perished as a direct consequence of his obsession with closing Gitmo:
Testifying before the GOP-led House Foreign Affairs Committee, Paul Lewis, the Defense [Commissariat]’s special envoy for the closure of the detention center, declined to provide details and did not say whether the incidents occurred before or after Barack Obama took office in January 2009.
Naturally. <eyeroll> Because if it was "detainees" released by the Bushies, Lewis would have spent his entire testimony listing each and every one of them, and each and every one of their victims, and how if Dubya had never fought and captured them and opened Gitmo in the first place, nobody would have died. Or something.
“What I can tell you is unfortunately there have been Americans that have died because of (Guantanamo) detainees,” Lewis said during an exchange with Representative Dana Rohrabacher, R-CA48.
“When anybody dies it is tragedy. We don’t want anybody to die because we transfer detainees,” Lewis said. “However, it’s the best judgment and the considered judgment of this administration and the previous administration that … we should close” the Guantanamo detention center. [emphasis added]
Which is BS, because the Bush Administration never said any such thing. which means the Obamunists are tacitly admitting that emptying Gitmo is insanity or they wouldn't be trying to fob off blame on their predecessors, BUT they are so ideologically committed to doing so anyway that they are perfectly okey-dokey with Americans dying in massive numbers as a result of it. Which they'll blame all on Bush43. See how well that works?
2) Thousands of ungrateful defectors from the "glorious Cuban worker's paradise" have "escaped" to Mexico and done what everybody else in Latin America does these days:
Tens of thousands of Cubans have been flown to Mexico where they freely walk across the United States border to begin a new life — despite the fact some are hardened criminals and others may carry infectious diseases, a U.S. border patrol official tells Newsmax TV's Dennis Michael Lynch.
The [alien]s are quickly processed, given $200 in cash, $200 in credit and allowed to travel anywhere in the U.S. without any supervision.
In one instance, border employees watched in disgust as two men — one found out to be a convicted child molester, the other a convicted rapist — were waved into the U.S. without any further questioning.
And more are on the way, with an astounding four hundred Cubans crossing the international bridge from Mexico into Laredo, Texas, every day according to the source, who is based in the bustling border town.
The flood of [alien]s comes amid increasing concern [everywhere except the White House] about security on our southern border in the wake of this week's terrorist outrage in Brussels in which ISIS bombers killed at least thirty-one people.
The wave of Cubans seems to be going on with the rubber-stamp approval of State [commissaria]t officials.
"There is an official from the State [Commissariat] who is watching over all of this. They're making sure that the Cubans are all given paperwork that entitles them to roam the country at will," Lynch's source tells him. [emphases added]
If Cuba is such a "glorious workers' paradise" that is so morally and in every other way superior to the U.S., why would anybody want to flee it, much less by the tens of thousands? Which leads to the question of how many are "refugees" looking to "start a better life" by flagrantly violating our immigration laws and how many are either the emptying of the Castros' criminal jails (which they've done many times before) or Cuban agents infiltrating our country to link up with ISIS cells and "no-go zones" across America to plan and carry out mass-casualty attacks, all with the Obama White House's blessing.
3) Don't try to tell us that the feds can't surveil and monitor and patrol and round up large numbers of fugitives of any stripe:
The [Inj]ustice[, Revenge & Coverup Commissaria]t says more than eight thousand violent fugitives were arrested during a six-week operation.
Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and the U.S. Marshals Service announced the results Wednesday of an initiative known as Operation Violent Reduction 12.
Yates called the effort "targeted and focused" and said it focused on a dozen communities across the country that have high rates of violent crime.
Officials say the marshals targeted people with open warrants for violent crimes such as murder, armed robbery and aggravated assault. [emphasis added]
How many jihadist fighters has ISIS said they've infiltrated into Europe in the Muslim "refugee" tsanami? Only half that many. So it can be done, when there's the will to do so. The Obama Regime does not have this will, because its namesake is on the side of the jihadist savages against his "own" country and its legal inhabitants - aka what used to be known as "citizens". Donald Trump pretends to have the will, but he's just bilking his witless followers to abscond with their primary votes. Ted Cruz alone has the will, and walks the talk, and his reward for his impassioned, authentic, morally authorized efforts is to be incoherently slimed as a patriphobic hypocrite.
And an "Islamophobe," of course. Even though "Islamophobia" might just slow the toll of American deaths. And we certainly can't have that. Who knows how much higher the dhimmi taxes might be raised?
