Leave it to Ted Cruz to double down on his weird conspiracy theory that the Planned Parenthood shooter was a leftist transgender activist. In an interview Monday with radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt, the surprisingly still running, presidential candidate had quite the response to those of us on the left accusing the right-wing for hate fueled rhetoric. Cruz thinks it’s all the left’s fault.
Now listen, here’s the simple and undeniable fact.The overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats. The media doesn’t report that.

Cruz even claimed that the media has been lying about the now debunked Planned Parenthood videos. To Cruz, they are as real as Obama’s Kenyan birth certificate. Hewitt was with Cruz saying, “there’s obviously a concerted effort, it’s an Orwellian effort, to delegitimize criticism of Planned Parenthood.”
Cruz then aligned the Black Lives Matter Movement with the Planned Parenthood shooter saying that the media should be asking the democratic presidential candidates “whether they believe the inflamed rhetoric of Black Lives Matter has contributed to the targeting and murder of police officers.”
And one of these seems to be clear. You want to talk about inflamed rhetoric, Black Lives Matter has been caught, their protesters on film, chanting “pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon.” Now that is hateful rhetoric, and I don’t see any reporters asking Hillary Clinton when she meets with Black Lives Matter whether she agrees with those sentiments that we should be murdering police officers.
When in doubt, the right-wing always blames the media, and that’s exactly what Cruz did extending it even further to laying right-wing terrorism at the feet of the left.
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. 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 voluntarily represented for free, a cop killer, to a senior Justice Department position. They go in and fight to give the right to vote to convicted felons. Why? Because the Democrats know convicted felons tend to vote Democrat. And so the media never reports on any of that, doesn’t want to admit any of that, but you can see in every one of these, every time there’s a terrible crime, they’re so excited, come on, please, one of these be a Republican so we can try to paint the other side. It is one of the more egregious examples of media bias, and it’s something we see over and over and over again.
It takes a truly fascinating form of psychosis to come up with that kind of twisted logic. We’re talking about an epic loss of reality that dwarfs even basic absurdity. This is real fringe behavior here. You’ve got to listen to it yourself, it’s appalling:
