Discussion: Cruz On Muslim Database: I’m ‘Not A Fan Of Govt Registries’ For US Citizens

Discussion for article #243070

"There is no meaningful risk of Christians committing acts of terror,” he said.

Christians like Dylann Roof?


Oh, NO! The GOP field has slipped so far right that Cruz is sounding reasonable!

Carnival must have forgotten about Christian Identity, the militiaboys of the 90s and the Hugenots in France.

Or Christians like Timothy McVeigh, Terry Nichols, Frazier Glenn Cross (Carolina KKK), Jim David Adkisson, the murderers of numerous abortion doctors and their fellow travellers who set bombs at women’s health clinics, and oh, the list goes on and on.


And of course, Teddy Cruz might have noted that any such registry would be unconstitutional.

"There is no meaningful risk of Christians committing acts of terror,”

Once again, Google takes all of 2 minutes to drop a messy shit on the GOP/Teatrolls:



ted cruz: i’m definitely not for a muslim database. however, a cuban-american database could be in order. seems like a sneaky lot to me. just sayin.

Roughly 10,000 murders with guns every year in America BY AMERICANS, just what religion do you think most of them are? I’m am just so sick of this bull shit served to us that we should be afraid of terrorists and not really concerned about that biggest source of violence upon Americans.

Wisconsin Sikh Temple massacre, Aug. 5, 2012.
Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church shooting, July 27, 2008.
The Centennial Olympic Park bombing, July 27, 1996.


And the majority of gun homicides in America. Ooops, sorry. That’s not terrorism.

“The First Amendment protects religious liberty,” he told Bloomberg.

Cruz has repeatedly called for a religious test to determine which Syrian refugees should be accepted into the U.S., explicitly saying Muslims should be denied entry.

What?? Maybe I’m just not as clever as Ted Cruz, but this is just absurd. So we have religious liberty guaranteed to us by the Constitution, except if you’re a Syrian Muslim? Then you need not apply?

And this buffoon wants to debate Obama?

I used to work in a big reasearch hospital with people from all over the world. One of them moved to a new apartment and he wanted to know how he was to tell the government. I told him he didn’t have to. He didn’t drive, and so he only needed to tell anyone who sent him bills.

He was flabbergasted. He couldn’t believe that he didn’t have to tell the government where he lived. (He thought he had been negligent in doing so at his last apt.) I thought it was weird that I had never even thought about it.

Naa, he just sees the backlash that Trump is getting, and realizes he isn’t Trump and probably can’t ride it out, so he is “switching” his position temporarily.

I mean, how do you disclaim registering of Americans “un-American” while in the same breath say you want religious tests for refugees? Hell, how can you be worried about screening refugees of a potential violent nature when your own father was an active communist revolutionary killing people that America backed because they disagreed with him, but was still let into this country, for that matter?


Hey let’s get our priorities straight: Register Muslims, not firearms. After all firearms are people, too, my friend.

No meaningful threat of Christians committing terrorism Cruz says:

I do seem to remember Timothy McVeigh being something other than a Muslim, Ted.

One other thing, Ted, all a bad guy (Muslim, Christian or some other extremist flavor) would need here is money. With money a bad guy could walk into any red blooded second amendment lovin’ gun shop and purchase enough lethal weaponry to start WW3. In fact, Ted, here in Tucson, where semi-auto assault rifles are legal to buy along with as many 30 round clips as you can carry, there is a gun shop called “Second Amendment Sports”. They got ammo as well, Ted. So ya don’t need to black market that gun purchase, Ted. And lemme tell ya, Ted, the local fringe teabaggers are in a serious quandary over this.

The Repubs are playing checkers and meanwhile, President Obama has opened with the French Defense. Not only an excellent move but a very apt one as well.

President Obama, dimensions above the competition.

You nailed it.

When in trouble or to avoid trouble, just say “Liberty™” or “Freedom™” and you’ll be fine – Republican survival rule #1.

[Is Ted’s chin blowing a bubble in that picture?]

Constitution aside, if you build a working Christometer, all hell is going to break loose if somebody brings one into a Congressional building and starts pointing it at all those good “Christians” who have been voting to cut food stamps, insulting people for being in need, and pissing on the heads of families desperate to find a life outside a war zone.

No, he’s not.
