Human tonsil stone Ted Cruz is under fire for using a homophobic term to blame “Dem politicians & woke media” who criticized a previous Tweet mocking the U.S. Military. Confused? Let me explain.

Former Mediaite writer Pardes Saleh tweeted a video montage that compared a Russian military recruiting advertisement to one from the U.S. Army. Cruz quote-tweeted the video and added his signature trenchant commentary, writing “Holy crap. Perhaps a woke, emasculated military is not the best idea…”

The video Cruz tweeted intercut the Russian video with snippets of an ad featuring Cpl. Emma Malonelord, a soldier with two moms whose story attracted so much abuse on YouTube that the Army disabled the comments section.

The reaction to Cruz’s tweet was quick and harsh, as many were quick to note that the Texas Senator famous for visiting Cancun while his state was in a historic electric catastrophe, was not only calling the US military weak and emasculated, but he was ALSO sharing Russian propaganda, “like a punk-ass traitor,” wrote at least one fair-minded and reasonable critic.

As one can see below, Cruz continued his ill-thought approach of  a “best defense is a good offense” by calling out the “lefty blue checkmarks losing their minds, dishonestly claiming” that he was “attacking the military” (even though he was.)

Senator Cruz went further, however, adding that “Dem politicians & woke media are trying to turn them into pansies.”

Yes, the term “pansy” is considered a derisive and homophobic term, at least according to the nation’s largest LGBTQ rights organization, Human Rights Campaign, who just last year called out another Republican official for using the homophobic slur.

Needless to say, things on Twitter went from bad to worse for Senator Cruz, whose political self-owning reminds one of Sideshow Bob stepping on multiple rakes in the famous Cape Fear episode of The Simpsons.

In a weird twist that neatly illustrates the current state of American politics, however, the Twitter attacks on Cruz’s idiocy will only make him politically stronger to a base that appears to support this sort of moronism (apologies to morons) while the attackers will find glee in pointing and laughing at the Texas Senator’s rake steppage.
