Ted Cruz’s dad rips RINOs: ‘We, the people, are not stupid’

The apple really doesn’t fall far from the tree. Sen. Ted Cruz’s dad took to the stage at a recent Colorado event to deliver a scathing speech in support of his son’s filibuster try and to put Republicans-In-Name-Only on notice.

“What is sad is the RINOs who went running to vote with Harry Reid,” said Rafael Cruz, 74, who fled Cuba when he was a teenager and now lives near Dallas, Politico reported. He delivered the speech a few days ago during a Republican Party dinner event in Colorado, the video of which was just now coming to the attention of the national media.

“I know I am in a Republican Party meeting,” he said. “If you want to throw tomatoes at me, throw tomatoes at me, but unfortunately you cannot say that the Republican Party is without blame. We have too many RINOs in the Republican Party.”

The senior Mr. Cruz specifically condemned the 25 Republicans who fought against his son’s filibuster in the Senate.

“Unfortunately, some of those RINOs that have been there for 30 years want to be there for another 30,” he said, Politico reported. “They have no clue of what’s happening in the country. As a matter of fact, most of them refused to have town hall meetings because they didn’t want to face ‘we, the people.’ They have their minds made up and basically their idea is this: ‘You’re too stupid, and I know what I’m doing.’ Well, I’ll tell you what, we, the people, are not stupid. We, the people, ought to be smart enough to vote them right out of office or primary then, and put constitutional conservatives in their place.”

    I watched an earlier video of Rafael Cruz lecturing a group of young people. It was dynamic. He was imprisoned in Cuba and tortured but was lucky enough to get a student visa and come here. His speech was about freedom and liberty – wonderful. He needs to go around the country and explain to the numnuts all about freedom vs tyranny!

    Ted Cruz for President (2016) and Chris Cristie for dog catcher (he needs the exercise). Fire the GOP and bring on board the Tea Party. Jail Obama, Reid, Boehner, Pelosi, McCain, Grahm, and all the other RINO’s and Progressives (commie snakes).
