It’s Not Just Lefty Wing Nuts Calling Cruz Anti-Semitic

The Washington-New York Acela corridor crowd really wants to stop Ted Cruz.

When a lefty wing nut at Jezebel writes a piece about how Cruz’s “New York values” remark is anti-semitic, I mark it par on my scorecard. When MSNBC calls orthodox Rabbi Shmuley Boteach to comment on this, it’s typical liberal recycling. When SNL joins in the fun, it’s over the top.

Boteach thoroughly dismantles this attack, which has to be the lowest I’ve seen against Cruz so far.

Let’s get real. You can love Ted Cruz or you can dislike him. I happen to be firmly in the former category and consider him a warm friend and a courageous leader. He’s a conviction politician and he’s bound to excite deep passion in voters, both for and against. But what you can’t do is accuse him of anti-Semitism.

That is the stupidest, most disgusting thing I’ve ever heard. For Cruz is one of the staunchest, most dependable allies of Israel to ever exist in the United States Senate.

Cruz suffered boos and left the stage at a conference of Christians in the Middle East rather than back off on Israel. “If you will not stand with Israel and the Jews, then I will not stand with you.”

These hacks will stop at nothing to discredit Cruz.
