Ted Cruz Launches Truth Missile About Violent Criminals… Explains Reason Why Obama Is Soft On Crime

In a Monday interview on the Hugh Hewitt show, GOP presidential candidate and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said that President Barack Obama and the Democrat Party are soft on crime because most violent offenders are Democrats.

Sen. Cruz was referring to last week’s shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado, which the media roundly blamed on pro-life conservatives.

“This whole episode has really displayed the ugly underbelly of media,” Sen. Cruz said in the interview.

“You know, every time you have some sort of violent crime or mass killing, you can almost see the media salivating, hoping, hoping, desperately that the murderer happens to be a Republican so they can use it to try to paint their political enemies.

Now listen, here’s the simple and undeniable fact: the overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats,” Cruz continued.

“The media doesn’t report that. What they report, and there’s a reason why the Democrats for years have been viewed as soft on crime because they go in and they appoint to the bench judges who release violent criminals, they go in and they do what Barack Obama tried to do, which is appoint a lawyer who voluntarily represented for free, a cop killer to a senior Justice Department position.”

Cruz also lambasted Democrats for trying to give convicted felons the right to vote, saying liberals’ motives were purely cynical.

“They go in and fight to give the right to vote to convicted felons,” Cruz said. “Why? Because the Democrats know convicted felons tend to vote Democrat.”

It’s no mistake that the Democrats are a party of criminals, by criminals and for criminals. However, the media chooses not to report that fact, focusing instead on conservatives exercising their Second Amendment rights.

Leave it to Ted Cruz to deal the mainstream media a truth bomb.
