Hardly a day after Sen. Ted Cruz called out the left’s “liberal fascism,” he ended up the target of that very thing.
According to CNN, Sen. Ted Cruz argued Saturday that Democrats have become so extreme and “intolerant” of religious views that “there is no room for Christians in today’s Democratic Party.”
“There is a liberal fascism that is dedicated to going after believing Christians who follow the biblical teaching on marriage,” the Texas Republican said in his speech before a Christian conservative audience in Waukee, Iowa.
By Monday, here are the words of a gay hotelier who had the audacity to exercise his right to free association with Cruz—whose crime was disagreeing with the left on gay marriage. For co-hosting an event for Cruz, the man was attacked and forced to denounce him.
I am shaken to my bones by the e-mails, texts, postings and phone calls of the past few days. I made a terrible mistake. I was ignorant, naive and much too quick in accepting a request to co-host a dinner with Cruz at my home without taking the time to completely understand all of his positions on gay rights. I’ve spent the past 24 hours reviewing videos of Cruz’ statements on gay marriage and I am shocked and angry. I sincerely apologize for hurting the gay community and so many of our friends, family, allies, customers and employees. I will try my best to make up for my poor judgement. Again, I am deeply sorry.
This led to a media feeding frenzy, with few if any pointing out the intolerant nature of today’s left, including the gay community that claims to be all about tolerance… as long as you agree with them:
