Clown Shoes Cruz Has an Opinion About Robert Dear

As you know, I think of Ted Cruz privately (and publically, I guess) as "Clown Shoes" Cruz, because he comes so close to not being a clown, but then, well. Just this morning, I noticed that Gateway Pundit, not exactly a bastion of highbrow observations, had decided that the Planned Parenthood shooter was trans because of some misprint on his voting record, and assumed that because Dear was not a declared Republican, he couldn't be conservative, either.

That's just speculation being posted as fact. Voter registration is not proof of gender preference and not being a Republican isn't proof of being liberal. Neither assumption would cancel out the idea that anti-abortion sentiment could lead to violence, because neither transwomen or non-Republicans are monolithic groups--a person identifying as both or either could still be capable of shooting up a clinic over anti-abortion propaganda.

I thought it was too stupid to be repeated by anyone with an IQ above room temp. So finding that Senator Ted Cruz, Ivy Leaguer, presidential candidate, has repeated it is simply bloody fascinating.

I have nothing to add. Nothing, nope, nothing at all.

I'm surprised that this is the tack they're taking. I'd have bet actual folding money that they'd claim the shooting was a 'false flag' to derail the upcoming congressional hearing. I'm also surprised that they haven't starting blaming #blacklivesmatter for an 'anti-police' culture that lead to officer Swasey's slaying.

Coming pretty close, Carly Fiorina in the extended-play version of her remarks said "All protesters should be peaceful, whether Black Lives Matter protesters or pro-life protesters."

I believe that when someone shoots a place up, they are no longer "protesters" and have upgraded to "terrorists". I'm not sure where BLM comes into it, except to change the subject.
