Speaking at the “Values” Voter Summit Friday in Washington D.C., Tail Gunner Ted Cruz once more exhibited his complete disdain for the truth, accusing the President of being determined to violate every one of our Constitutional rights.
A little over one minute into his fairytale Cruz claimed that the President “chastised” an Army chaplain for quoting Dwight Eisenhower in a web article saying that, “there are no atheists in foxholes” and ordering that the article be taken down. Of course it didn’t matter to Ted or his cheerleaders in the Peanut Gallery that there was no truth in the statement.
In actuality, President Obama was in no way involved in the incident. The chaplain’s commanding officer was the one who was contacted by a watchdog group, Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), which describes itself as a civil rights group whose goal is to protect the rights of members of the military under the anti establishment clause of the first amendment. It was apparently the CO who ordered the article removed, there is absolutely no evidence that the President was involved even peripherally.
Of course the lie played well to the Peanut Gallery and one man can be heard to shout, “Tyranny!” This of course elicited a big smile from Ted.
Tail Gunner goes on to say,
“I don’t know that they’ve yet violated the Third Amendment, but I expect them to start quartering soldiers in people’s homes soon.”
Really? What possible reason would you have to say something as ridiculous as this, Ted?
He then proceeded to accuse the President of violating the First Amendment by forcing religious people to provide abortifacients to their employees, or as Ted pronounces them “abort-efficients.” Of course that is also a lie, the President never issued any such order and the “abort-efficients” are birth control pills which do not by any stretch of the imagination abort a pregnancy, they merely prevent it.
Once more the “patriot” in the Peanut Gallery shouted, “Tyranny!”
If Tail Gunner and his supporters had any idea what tyranny actually looks like they would know that if the President was indeed a tyrant they would have been dead or lost in a basement cell of some prison long ago.
