Ted Cruz Has A Lot Of Anti-Semitic Admirers

For a presidential candidate who champions religious liberty, Ted Cruz sure has a lot of anti-Semitic supporters. And he clearly doesn’t seem to mind.

Ted Cruz immediately pulled a presidential campaign ad after it emerged that one of the featured actresses in the video appeared in a number of adult movies.

One, and probably the only, possible explanation of the move could be the Republican candidate’s well-known commitment to faith and religion.

But it’s rather odd and hypocritical because while Cruz doesn’t want himself associated with a porn star — not even in a 30-second spot  he doesn’t distance himself from supporters who are unapologetically anti-Semitic.

First, his campaign vehemently defended an endorsement from Mike Bickel, a controversial pastor who has said Jews will be hunted and put in death camps before Jesus returns.

And now, after notorious musician NRA gun nut and Cruz admirer Ted Nugent has come under fire for implying that Jewish-Israelis are behind gun control because “they hate freedom,” the Texas senator is still touting his support on his official website.

Know these punks. They hate freedom, they hate good over evil, they would deny us the basic human right to self defense ...

“The actress responded to an open casting call.  She passed her audition and got the job.  Unfortunately, she was not vetted by the casting company. Had the campaign known of her full filmography, we obviously would not have let her appear in the ad. The campaign is taking the ad down and will replace it with a different commercial.”

This was Cruz’s campaign’s official and prompt response after discovering Amy Lindsay appeared in one of its ads.

On the other hand, it has been well over three days since Nugent’s anti-Semitic post and Cruz’s campaign hasn’t rejected his endorsement yet.
