Ted Cruz Says Disney Will Soon Have Cartoons Of ‘Mickey And Pluto Going At It’ In The Bedroom

It’s a given that Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz is a human hemorrhoid who just so happens to wear a suit and tie and grow a grubby looking beard that seems more suitable on a serial killer or perverted neighbor who likes to steal women’s underwear off the nearest clothesline.

But now we know what a sick, twisted, and downright demented excuse of a person Cruz is as a result of remarks he made in a disgusting attack on the Walt Disney Company, which has made it clear they don’t support the controversial “Don’t Say Gay” legislation that was recently signed by Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis.

On his “Verdict” podcast, Cruz launched a demented and downright disgusting attack on Disney, telling listeners:

“I think there are people who are misguided, trying to drive Disney stepping in saying, you know, in every episode now they’re going to have, you know, Mickey and Pluto going at it.”

The Texas senator then added:

“But it’s just like, come on, guys, these are kids and, you know, you could always shift to Cinemax if you want that. Like, I’m a dad, it used to be that you could put your kids on the Disney channel and be like, all right, something innocuous will happen.”

So just because Disney doesn’t support state-sanctioned discrimination against LGBTQ Americans, that means they’re suddenly going to start showing smut on their channels? That’s almost as absurd as the rumor that Ted Cruz is an adult when he’s actually little more than a adolescent with the brain of a seven-year-old boy in desperate need of some Adderall.

Twitter wasted no time letting Cruz know that his remarks sounded more like a reflection of his own fantasies than something Disney would produce:

Former Aide To Madison Cawthorn Excoriates Her Ex-Boss: ‘Bad Person – Habitual Liar’

A former aide to embattled Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC)  has filed an employment-related complaint about her ex-boss, calling him a “bad person” who is also a “habitual liar.”

The Smoky Mountain News reports:

“What he’s done to me was illegal, morally wrong, you name it, it’s been done,” Wiggins said in a phone call to David Wheeler, co-founder of nonpartisan advocacy PAC American Muckrakers, more commonly known as Fire Madison Cawthorn.

Wiggins added that Cawthorn seems unwilling to meet with his constituents unless its reelection time and he needs their votes:

“He doesn’t care about his constituents. He does not care.

“If you come from Cherokee County you’re driving five hours to see your congressman. But you can’t see your congressman anyway when you go to the office. There’s no way you can get a meeting with him unless he’s trying to pull some votes and that’s about the only way.”

Additionally, Wiggins noted that not only is Cawthorn bad at the job he was elected to do, he’s also a terrible human being:

“As far as the candidate himself, I mean, he’s just a bad person. He’s a habitual liar and he’s going to say and do anything he can to your face but behind your back he’s completely opposite. There’s some good stories I have – a lot of good stories.”

Will Cawthorn survive the upcoming GOP primary in North Carolina? Wiggins says she’s hopeful he won’t and is backing one of his challengers, retired Army Col. Rod Honeycutt:

“The main goal here is that he does not get that 30 plus 1 percent. I don’t feel like he’s gonna get it. I just don’t feel like he’s gonna run away with it on May 17.”

Cawthorn has fallen out of favor with his fellow Republicans in Congress for claiming that he had been invited to orgies hosted by other members of the GOP where cocaine was used. He later walked back those comments, but not before he was slammed as an “embarrassment” by North Carolina Republican Sen. Thom Tillis.

The congressman is also facing a severe shortage of cash to run his campaign. A recent financial filing shows that Cawthorn only has $115,575 on hand and is spending more than he’s taking in.

Greene Says House Republicans Will Impeach Biden And Harris If They Win The Midterm Election

If Republicans win control of the House of Representatives in the upcoming midterm elections, according to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), their top priority won’t be legislating or doing anything to help the American people. Instead, they intend to try and impeach President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

At a reelection kickoff for alleged sex trafficker Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Greene made it clear that she and her GOP colleagues will be seeking payback for the two impeachments of failed, one-term former President Donald Trump:

“Here’s what we do after that we too impeach Kamala Harris, because you can’t encourage, and promote, and raise money for criminal rioters, and expect to serve the interest of the people, the great people of the United States. That is a conflict of interest.”

If Republicans win control of the House, they can indeed impeach Biden and Harris, though there’s no way either would be convicted in a Senate trial. Such a move would also alienate millions of voters as the country moves closer to the 2024 presidential election.

Trump has been hinting that he will likely run in 2024, but considering his age, questionable health, and possible indictment, that’s not even a 50-50 proposition.

Greene and her ilk are on the verge of overplaying their hand, and that could wind up making it all the more likely that Democrats win in 2024 and become the permanent party in power for decades.

GOP Racism WTF?!

Marjorie Taylor Greene Claims The GOP Is Diverse Because It Includes ‘Yellow People’

According to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), there’s simply no way that Republicans can be bigoted or racist because the GOP contains “yellow people” in its ranks.

Speaking at “AmericaFest,” a conference sponsored by the right-wing youth group Turning Point USA, according to HuffPost, Greene began her remarks by noting that she’d “never been” to a conference for young conservatives, adding:

“When I walked in yesterday, I was like, what kind of people come here? So I’m walking around and seeing some good people, and I see white people, Black people, brown people, yellow people.

“And then there’s talk of freedom and loving America and conservative principles, some crazy people in here were talking about how much they love this guy named Jesus. And I heard — someone I really like — I think I heard that a lot of people here like a guy named Donald J. Trump.

“And then I said, ‘Oh, oh, I know exactly what this is. The left calls this a white supremacist party.'”

Yellow people? Really? The GOP must indeed be a white supremacist party based on the “yellow people” remark from Greene, because it’s a long-used racist trope that’s been around for centuries in the United States:

“Yellow” has long been a charged term to describe Asian people and is widely perceived as a slur. “Yellow Peril,” for example, was used as far back as the nineteenth century to vilify Asian people and cast Asian nations as a danger to Western values.

This rhetoric led to xenophobia and hate toward Asian immigrants, which flared again during the pandemic, due in part to other racist language like the terms “Kung Flu” and “China Virus” coined by former President Donald Trump.

Greene was taken to task on Twitter for her disgusting remarks, with former “Star Trek” star George Takei noting:

“I honestly haven’t heard someone use ‘yellow people, for decades. Perhaps she meant ‘yellow bellied people’ because there are certainly lots in that crowd.”

Sophie Zhang echoed Takei’s tweet:

“I’ve recently been called a ‘Chink’, a ‘Jap’, a ‘gook’, and more. Racists don’t excel at distinguishing ethnic background. But ‘yellow people’ is something that I haven’t heard in a decade or two.

“What is this, the 1960s?”

Greene and her ilk probably wish this was the 1960s so all non-white people had to drink from different water fountains and could be lynched on a whim without any legal repercussions. That’s what Trump Republicans call “the good old days.”

Viral Attack Ad Eviscerates Matt Gaetz And The GOP As ‘Too Extreme To Be In Power’

A new ad from from the Democratic Party targeting Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and other extreme right-wing members of the GOP (including Reps. Jim Jordan, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Paul Gosar), has quickly gone viral on Twitter, getting 340,000 views (and counting).

HuffPost reports that the ad labels Republicans as “too extreme to be in power.”

The 30-second spot took Rep. Matt Gaetz’s (R-Fla.) warning of what will happen if the GOP wins control of the House in 2022 and fired it right back at the Donald Trump-adoring lawmaker and his increasingly extremist party.

“We are going to take power after this next election and when we do … it’s going to be the days of Jim Jordan and Marjorie Taylor Greene and Dr. [Paul] Gosar and myself,” Gaetz crowed Tuesday at a news conference.

The clip of Gaetz is then intercut with footage of the other radicals, including their comments supporting the QAnon conspiracy theory and referring to the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 as “peaceful patriots.”

At the end of the ad is this caption:

“When Republicans tell you who they are are, listen.”

If Gaetz and his compadres take power in 2022, this country is doomed.
