´Times,´ ´WaPo´ Launch
Racially-Coded Attack
Against Ted Cruz

Breitbart´s Big Journalism, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/16/2013 10:50:44 PM

Apparently, the "Washington Post" and "New York Times" don´t like the idea of a non-white U.S. Senator acting all uppity. It´s fine for the lily-white Elizabeth Warren to immediately come out guns blazing, but over the past couple of days both news outlets ripped into in Texas Senator Ted Cruz for not knowing his place. As we all know, the base of the Democratic Party is made up of union workers, who see Hispanics as a threat to their jobs, and rich, white, coastal liberals whose only contact with the Latino community is on grass-mowing day. And so

Time to turn it around.
Everybody criticizing Cruz is a racist.
Please say it, and keep repeating it over and over.
We need to create impression right or wrong that Democrats hate Latinos.
Why we do not exploit 300 people killrd in operation fast and furiuous as a racial black Latino issue?
Why" "genius" Carl Rowe did not run an add like this I will never understand.
If you want to win you have to play politics which is a nasty game. Nice guys always loose.

"lose", not "loose"...

Democrats, "progeessives" (regressives), leftists, etc. have ALWAYS been the real racists. They have only pretended to care about people of color while projecting their racist views on others. They have promoted a few key minorities and "community leaders" to prestigious positions in order to keep their people in-line. But their goal is to keep the people generally in poverty and as controllable dependents. They (at least the ones in positions of power) actually hate people of color. The establishment, country club Republicans who don´t like Cruz just don´t want anyone shaking up the status quo where they can gain power and wealth through their office. They don´t want to lose a good thing even if it is hurting our country and the rest of us.

To Democrats, it really doesn´t matter if you´re Hispanic, black, white, Asian, male, female, gay or transgendered. If you´re not a socialist, Democrats will hate you - no matter what your race, gender, religion or ethnicity is.

The racist accusation should be made every time one of the Republican minorities or conservative minorities are criticized or disagreed with in any way.

The traditional stance for a freshman senator is to hold back a bit.

...unlike your freshman president who went in there, guns blazing, with his socialist agenda? Wanna ask him to "hold back a bit" or not?

The "Nattering Nabobs Of Negativism" on The Dark Side at The New York Times and Washington Post need to spend some money and hire new and more imaginative offensive coordinators!

Never back down Sen. Cruz. The nation is desperately looking for leaders. Honorable, principled men and women will save this country from the ruling class. So many people go to Washington and get sucked in by the establishment. Don´t let that happen. You understand the problems we are facing and have real solutions. Don´t get bogged down by the career politicians in your own party. They are the problem. Forge a new path for yourself and fellow conservatives and a grateful nation will support you. God bless you.

Here´s the difference between Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, both ´hispanic´ senators:

Marco Rubio is Cuban. From Florida (and where is Obama this weekend? Gathering Rubio intel perhaps?) And, he is cute and cuddly, and has a self-deprecating sense of humor. Plus, he threw in with a few Establishment RINO senators on immigration.

Ted Cruz is Latino. (Learn the difference.) He´s from Texas. Lots of independent minds there in Texas. And they have a huge border problem, as do all southwestern and neighboring states. He´s handsome, not in a cuddly way, but in a rugged, manly-man way. He´s soft-spoken normally, but intense and - dare I say it? - PRINCPLED. He knows his positions because they come to him from within.

Now Rubio is principled too, but in my personal humble opinion, Cruz would be a better front man on the immigration issue.... he has lived it. Rubio´s family´s immigration was a completely different situation.

I understand, but have no verified proof, that Latinos don´t really see Cubans as ´like them´. Compare it to dark-skinned blacks vs. light-skinned blacks, perhaps, but there´s a certain resentment. Latinos in the southwest just want an open border, and there are extremists who want Atzlan back.

Watch for these 2, and other librags, to pit Cruz against Rubio directly. (They think they ´have´ Rubio and that he´s controllable.)

Ted represents Texas but I read somewhere that he was born in Canada. This may simply be an expansion of the ongoing anti-Canadian pogrom which has been building for years. He may very well have gone to Catholic Schools too. You cannot trust anyone who knows how to diagram a sentence.

Sounds like the Times and Post want to go along with the idea that freshmen Senators and Representatives are just supposed to go along to get along once they arrive in DC. That they have to be around for a few years to "learn how we do things here". Well, there might just be a few that DON´T go along with that idea. They believe that they were elected to represent their districts and states and are bound to do so. These are they type of people we, as a nation, need a lot more of. And get rid of the dead wood at the same time.

#3 Totally agree.

The Republicans need to make lemonade and turn the racist card back on the Dems and go after the media bums right now.

First of all. Cruz is not non-white. The majority of Cubans are direct descendants from Spain. But, let them call Cruz non-white all day long as they dig themselves deeper into their own racist hole.
This is discrimination in it´s highest form. Until we stand up to the media and go after every one of their false accusations, they will continue this game. We need to start right now with a campaign to counter these attacks. It will take a concerted effort between now and 2014 and 2016 to get our message across.

Speaking of the hideous actions of the damnocrats, one of the readings at mass this morning was about Satan tempting Jesus with power and glory over all the kingdoms of the earth. My first thought on reading the passage was the 0bama was also tempted this way and it took him less than a nano second to grab on to the devil´s agenda. Then the priest spoke about the passage in his homily and specifically referred to politicians and asked why it´s so hard to get good people to run for public office. He didn´t mention any names but I know him and I´m sure that he was referring to the likes of zippy, Pelousy, Dingey Harry and the MSM.

Ted...read the Hate Speech language, then kick their rears!


"Hate speech is a communication that carries no meaning other than the expression of hatred for some group, especially in circumstances in which the communication is likely to provoke violence. It is an incitement to hatred primarily against a group of persons defined in terms of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and the like. Hate speech can be any form of expression regarded as offensive to racial, ethnic and religious groups and other discrete minorities or to women."

Make no mistake about it, this is Hate Speech and is definitely Racial!

Russia is paying a heavy price for its annexation of Crimea, with its financial markets crashing, economic growth falling, and foreign investors and citizens pulling money out of the country at a frenetic pace. Though the economic pain has been more self-inflicted than the result of limited sanctions imposed by the U.S. and European Union, the sanctions have helped create panic that has prompted investors and businesses to pull $70 billion out of the country in the first quarter after having withdrawn $63 billion in all of 2013. “The deteriorating geopolitical situation has already had a negative impact on Russia’s

DENVER — A gusher of proposed ballot initiatives on hydraulic fracturing is poised to flood the November ballot as Colorado digs in for a gritty election battle between the oil and gas industry and environmentalists. Nothing has qualified yet, but it would be no surprise if as many as a half-dozen proposals reach the Nov. 4 ballot, setting up what could become a national proxy war on energy development akin to last year’s debate on gun control. “I think this will be the test case.

You’ve probably heard recently about the feud between auto dealers and Tesla in New Jersey — as that story is, it’s just the latest and most glaring example of private interests using the government to protect themselves from competition at the expense of other companies and consumers. How about the war on ridesharing? Traditional taxi companies have been targeting innovative up-and-coming alternatives, such as Uber and Lyft. These ride-sharing companies allow anyone who has access to a car to become a budding businessman: Drivers can provide travel services directly to customers using apps.

Technically their membership’s been suspended, subject to reinstatement if/when Putin starts to play nice, but don’t hold your breath. What makes the Crimean invasion ominous isn’t its strategic significance but what it signals about Russia’s commitment to a confrontational posture with the west. The tenor of Kremlin propaganda makes compromise impossible: The Nazis are now in charge in Ukraine, backed by perverts in the U.S. and EU, imperiling ethnic Russians in all former Soviet satellite states. Having taken that line, how does Putin re-join the G-7, especially with (weak) sanctions now in effect? He’s setting Russia up as a counterweight

Bill Clinton crony Terry McAuliffe barely pulled a win out of his hat in last year´s Virginia Governor´s race, but so far the new Governor seems to be an expert at partying but not so great at governing. In last November´s election, Democrat McAuliffe took a sparse 48 percent to Virginia´s Republican State Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli´s 45 percent. McAuliffe wildly outspent his Republican opponent by $15 million in a state that Obama easily won in 2012.

Vladimir Putin thinks he has a winning formula to restore the global clout of the old Soviet Union. Contemporary Russia is a chaotic, shrinking, and petrodollar-fed kleptocracy. It certainly lacks the population, the vast resources, and territory of its former communist incarnation. For Putin, restoring a lot of the latter without necessarily the former failed communist state makes sense — especially if he can do it on the cheap with passive-aggressive diplomacy and not getting into a shooting war with the far more powerful U.S. If there is a downside for Putin annexing the Crimea in the short term, no

President Obama famously fills out an NCAA March Madness basketball bracket ever year, but it’s nothing like the one recently circulated by campus conservative activist Caleb Bonham. Mr. Bonham asked students at George Mason University to fill out a bracket ranking the “elite eight” Obama administration missteps, which he called the “Obama March Madness Scandal Edition.” “Which scandal will win the big dance?” says the YouTube video posted Friday by Campus Reform. The result was a three-way tie between “IRS Targets Conservatives,” “If You Like Your Plan, You Can Keep Your Plan,” and “NSA Collection of Citizens’ Email and Phone

Obamacare turned four years old Sunday. But unlike a human offspring, which would developing by leaps and bounds, the poor little government program is still peeing the bed. When historians recount the life of Obamacare (likely to be cut not-so-tragically short fairly soon), they might just start with how America’s comedians, all mostly liberal and easy on the president for five full years, took aim at him shortly after the invasive health care overhaul debuted. Like the seven-minute interview with comedian Zach Galifianakis on his hit Internet webcast “Between Two Ferns,” in which President Obama asks his bearded interviewer, “Have

In May 2012, when the Internal Revenue Service proposed its rules for Americans to get government subsidies for health insurance, officials acknowledged that a legal quirk needed to be fixed: The Affordable Care Act was written in a way that inadvertently denied such help to some people who live apart from spouses who abuse them, are in prison or are on the cusp of a divorce. The problem is that the law’s authors, in creating tax credits to help pay for health plans bought through the new insurance marketplaces, had overlooked the fact that some married people file their tax

Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are pressing the Department of Justice for more information about contact government lawyers reportedly made with Lois Lerner, the former IRS employee at the center of the scandal over the IRS’s targeting of tea party groups for special scrutiny. The fresh push from committee chairman Darrell Issa of California and committee member Jim Jordan of Ohio is a signal the GOP will continue to pursue possible contempt charges against Ms. Lerner after she invoked the fifth amendment right against self-incrimination on two occasions when called before the committee. “For over eight

The American Association for the Advancement of Science came as close as such a respectable institution can to screaming an alarm last week. "As scientists, it is not our role to tell people what they should do," it said as it began one of those sentences that you know will build to a "but". "But human-caused climate risks abrupt, unpredictable and potentially irreversible changes." In other words, the most distinguished scientists from the country with the world´s pre-eminent educational institutions were trying to shake humanity out of its complacency. Why weren´t their warnings leading the news? In one sense, the association´s appeal

Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama. The lack of DOJ action against an unrepentant federal vote fraudster combined with Richardson’s lionization by

President Barack Obama flies Sunday to a Europe shaken by Vladimir Putin’s seizure of Crimea and his threats against eastern parts of Ukraine. At a summit conference at The Hague on preventing nuclear terrorism – scheduled long before the Ukraine crisis – Obama will confer with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leaders. On Monday afternoon Obama will meet with President Xi Jinping of China, Russia’s neighbor and sometime rival. Putin has forced the United States and Europe to refocus on the origins of the modern transatlantic alliance -- the 1949 NATO defense partnership designed to prevent a

Congressional Republicans, led by House Oversight Committee chair Darrell Issa,are planning another IRS coal-raking exercise for Wednesday, hauling the tax agency´s commissioner in for a hearing about the nearly year-old tea party targeting scandal. [Snip] An aide to one Republican committee member said Monday that the White House and the Treasury Department were already dangerously close to causing a constitutional crisis. ´They´ve blown off the subpoenas,´ the aide said, referring to legal demands the committee issued to the IRS on August 2 and February 14. ´If the DOJ keeps dragging its heels too, and can just get away with it,

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

London - A remarkable piece of high-tech data detective work has provided what looks to be the missing clue to the tragic fate of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, an expert said Monday. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak earlier on Monday said that information provided by British satellite company Inmarsat and the British government´s Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) confirmed that MH370 had flown to a remote part of the Indian Ocean where the flight ended. (Snip) Inmarsat had come up with a theory to apply to the data it had collected from MH370 during the flight, and had then tested the results on aircraft in

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

First daughter Sasha Obama cut a stylish figure in jeans and shades as the Obama girls visited the Great Wall of China today. Michelle Obama, Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, were left alone to explore the Mutianyu section of the historical landmark in the northern Beijing suburbs though Chinese police officers looked on protectively. The three walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: ´Loyal to Chairman Mao.´ The country has been fascinated by Mrs Obama´s ´elegance´ during the weeklong visit to the country to promote educational

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor. I think the problem was that– that in dealing

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree
