The Daily GOP Ignominious: Cruz Places An Identity Stamp On The GOP!

For the love and memory of Jesse Helms.......

Ted Cruz and Rand Paul are both tea party darlings. The newly elected US Senators have a few of things in common:
1.) They are both inclined towards anti-civil rights legislation and equal rights for all. 
2.) They are very delusional to the point of absurd. 
3.) Both are from the "new south" (same as the old south).  
4.) Each knows "white privilege", relishes it and both are committed to life as it was pre-Civil Rights Movement. (Paul is a convenient racist and Cruz an obvious segregationist).  
Rand Paul is well-known for uncontrolled drivel which generally leaves his oratory tied in knots and filled with incoherence. Ted Cruz on the other side of zany has been known for brash in-your-face tea party oratory with a cutting edge.  As the two move towards 2016, they are expanding their fiefdom opportunities with pure and bloody red meat for their writhing (small) hordes of conservative low information voters.  It is unfortunate, but many of those same voters are relics of a by-gone era or the socially  deprived and brainwashed offspring of Momma and  Papa dinosaur. 

Paul and Cruz as speakers for Capitol Hill "defund Obamacare" event.  Looks a bit sparsely attended.

Both Paul and Cruz gave rousing speech appearances at the event. Despite Pat Robertson's delusional rally cry of thousands headed to Washington DC., Cruz, Paul and Mike Lee energized a few hundred die-hard teapublicans.  The crowd size may have been of little significance; cameras provided enough impetus for their tired branding chant of "de fund Obamacare."   The refrain is almost as effective in the long run as the Civil War Confederate Army's rebel yell. 

Ted Cruz via his typical quirky style must have decided to take his rhetoric to another level.  He has clearly decided to dispense his Dr. Jekyl Mr. Hyde by-day-by night persona for a fully charged "Freddy Kruger slash em 24/7" campaign model.  After a mere eight months in the US Senate, Cruz has declared the distinction of top Senate racist.  He has even out paced the all time and long running racist and sexist Jeff Sessions of the Great State of Alabama. The Texas Senator turned former Senator Trent Lott's ill fated public oozing over the retiring Senator Strum Thurmond into a mere gnat-like irritation.  He fired off what amounted a full libido-driven diatribe of wishing the US Senate was seated with 100 members like Jesse Helms.  Helms needs no introductions.  I would be hard-pressed to deny the prospect Helms was not a secret Grand Poopa in his region's Ku Klux Klan.  A thought we do not often level without serious forethought; especially towards a member of the Congress.

While MSNBC hosts covered Cruz's deeply personal revelation, we are posting a segment from Al Sharpton's Politics Nation. 

As a matter of representation in his district, the inevitable question comes to mind.  Does Cruz's publicly proclaimed level if affinity for racism serve you well?  He has effectively admitted he will not serve as a representative of African-Americans in his district.  Is his district solely made-up of whites?  If he longs for the ghost of Jesse Helms, it isn't much of a leap to find he also will not serve other minority constituents as a full representative.  Ultimately, and even though it is far too late based on his six year term, are people in his district best served by an admitted worshiper of one of the nation's must avowed racist senators.
Lest we forget others in the GOP.    We await comment from that proud group on "black conservatives" who would boldly proclaim a lack of understanding when faced with 96% African-American support the nations progressive party. We await comment from Reince "voter suppression" Priebus, RNC Chair.  Will the color blind Bobby Jindal dare position himself opposite Cruz's turf: appealing to the overt racist and white supremacist in the GOP? How will "the rotund one" from New Jersey  play against  an opponent who has staked his social claim and vision for the GOP?  Santorum can shelve his "Blah People"  almost code.    Newt Gingrich can now move his rhetoric from janitor high school kids and food stamp sloganeering to full fledged race baiting demagoguery.  Of course, he must wait for now as he is employed by Fox News Jr.: CNN. 
Yes, after eight and one half months in the US Senate, Cruz has staked his claim and spoken his vision for the GOP.   We await reaction from GOP leadership.  If there is not reaction, is it possible the party finds Cruz's wish palatable  Even George W. Bush worked to rid the US Senate of Trent Lott after his Strum Thurman accolades.  Will the New GOP allow Cruz to identity stamp the party, or will the party react. We suspect the party will not react. ....AND THE BAND PLAYS ON....
