AOC Picks Fight With Ted Cruz on 'Racist History' of Democrat Party, He Finishes It

By Sister Toldjah

Understandably, many Republicans shook their heads when news broke Monday on the NAACP’s announcement of a “travel advisory” for Florida, especially upon learning that the wildly partisan advisory revolved around bogus allegations that the state’s GOP governor, Ron DeSantis, was “openly hostile” to the black community and allegedly doesn’t want black children to learn black history (a claim that is also untrue).

Among those on the right rolling their eyes over the NAACP’s actions was Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who took to the Twitter machine to express his outrage over how far the organization has fallen over the years.

“This is bizarre. And utterly dishonest,” Cruz wrote. “In the 1950s & 1960s, the NAACP did extraordinary good helping lead the civil rights movement. Today, Dr. King would be ashamed of how profoundly they’ve lost their way.”

Democrat “political scientist” Norman Ornstein also chimed in, declaring that Cruz would have been “first in line” to filibuster the Civil Rights Act”:

“Nonsense. That shameful filibuster was led by Democrats—your party,” Cruz told him in response. “My party—the Republicans—proudly voted for the Civil Rights Act in much higher percentages than the racist Dems.”

This is when AOC decided to join in on the action, thinking she had a “gotcha” with her message to Cruz:

Cruz responded accordingly with a series of tweets where he educated her and his other critics on how Democrats have been racist towards the black community pretty much for the entirety of their existence:

Quote
First, the Dem party founded the KKK.

– Then the Dem party wrote Jim Crow laws.

– Then the Dem party filibustered the Civil Rights Act.

Today, the Dem part[y] filibusters school choice—trapping millions of Black kids in failing schools.

– Today, the Dem party pushes abolishing the police, which results in many more Black lives murdered.

– Today, every Dem senator voted against my bill to stop DC from throwing 40% of Black kids out of schools bc of vax mandate.

The Republican Party was founded to oppose slavery.

– Our first Republican President was Abraham Lincoln, who won the Civil War and ended slavery.

– It was Republicans who voted for the civil Rights Act in a much higher percentage than racist Dems.

– Today, we produced the lowest African-American unemployment EVER, under the Trump economic boom.

– Today, we produced the lowest African-American poverty levels EVER, under the Trump economic boom.

– Today, (in 2017) I passed the largest expansion of federal school choice EVER (making 529 plans cover K-12), over the objection of ever single Senate Dem.

– Also, just two years ago, the Dem governor of Virginia had put the photo of A MAN DRESSED AS A KKK KLANSMAN on his personal yearbook page.

– And today, the sitting Dem President—Joe Biden—gave in 2011 a flowery eulogy for an “Exalted Cyclops” of the KKK.

– And to add to all that, the Dem party aggressively supports open borders—which has led to the deaths and brutal assaults of thousands of Hispanics, and
@aoc somehow can’t seem to find her White pantsuit to cry over their suffering.

@Kamali

Like him or hate him,it makes no difference. You had definitely better have all your ducks in a row before you get into a pissing contest with Ted Cruz. He just might be the smartest politician in the nation,and if you challenge him,he WILL give you a verbal ass-whupping.

I like to think I am smart,but there is no way in hell I would start an argument with him.
Anyone who isn't paranoid in 2021 just isn't thinking clearly!
