Cruz: Send Those Kids Back to Be Raped and Killed

Ted Cruz put on stark display both his insistence on making everything political and his total lack of human compassion by acknowledging that those Central American kids who’ve fled to the U.S. were facing rape and murder — but demanding that they be sent back immediately anyway.

Cruz asserted that “the most heartbreaking aspect of this is you look at some 90,000 little boys and little girls coming in illegally, the people bringing them in, they’re not well-meaning social workers.”

“These are hardened, transnational, global carters,” he insisted. “They are cruel, vicious men. These little boys and little girls are being subjected to physical violence, to sexual violence.”

According to Cruz, drug cartels “cut off and send back body parts” of children to try and force their families to pay a ransom.

“They will force one little boy or one little girl to cut off the fingers or ears of other little boys or little girls,” he pointed out, adding that officials told him that children immigrating to the U.S. had been “maimed.”

“This is heartbreaking, and it is the direct result of President Obama’s lawlessness,” Cruz said.

But the senator proposed a solution: Send the children back to the countries where they had been mutilated and raped.

“The children will not stop coming, and will not stop being subjected to this horrific physical violence and sexual violence unless and until this administration begins enforcing our laws,” he warned. “That is the opposite of a humane policy.”

If only those poor kids had just remained fetuses, the Christian right might give a damn about them. But once you’re out of the birth canal, you instantly change from a sacred fetish object that must be preserved at all costs to a lazy, shiftless “taker” and a drain on society.

    Or don’t.

    Because,well, its axiomatic ethically ain’t it?

  2. teawithbertrand says

    Sorry, but how exactly is this crisis a “direct result of President Obama’s lawlessness”?

    Ted Cruz’s father was a refugee from Cuba.

    And Ted himself is a refugee from Soviet Canuckistan, having been born in Alberta and running the border.

    I’ve never seen the slightest hint that Ted Cruz isn’t a sociopath.

    Ain’t it?

    (D’oh! Blockquote fail, oh well.)

    Really? This scumbag is a contender in US politics? For real?

    Oddly enough, Cruz does have one point.

    The children showing up at the border are a humanitarian catastrophe.

    I don’t have a solution though. It starts with the conditions in the dysfunctional countries of Honduras, Guatamala, and El Salvador and heads north to the USA.

    Offhand, we could fix their problems. You know, find some terrorists and weapons of mass destruction or something. OTOH, it worked so well in Iraq and Afghanistan that we can’t do it again very soon.

    It would be nice if we could fix central America though.

    We are always going to be dealing with their problems as long as a rich country is near some of the poorest countries on the planet.

    In theory, something like a New Marshal plan.

    In practice, it probably won’t work. And I don’t have a better idea either.

    I would like to second the question in #2. I keep hearing about how this is all Obama’s fault to the point where Sarah Palin thinks that he has committed an impeachable offense, but I have to hear exactly what that is.

  8. rory says

    Sounds like a great plan, Ted. How about we send you first, and you let us know how it works out?

  9. Kevin Kehres says

    @7: It’s a false flag operation orchestrated by Obama to distract us from Benghazi.

    Of course.

    And I don’t have a better idea either. – raven

    Perhaps the USA could start by ceasing to back coups against democratically elected leaders attempting to carry through meaningful reforms, as in Honduras in 2009.

  11. wildbill says

    I’m wondering, do you think former canadian citizen & senator Ted cruz would have taken the same attitude to refugees arriving in the US during the Muriel Boatlift. “but, but that is different, castro is baaaad!”

    What about the refugees from vietnam after the fall of saigon and south vietnam?

    And of course I’m sure cruz & co have demanded US has do nothing during the refugee crisis caused by events in syria? the list goes on and on.

    (sadly many of the right wingers would turn their backs on all these people, cause you know america is for americans).

    All week, a song has been running through my head, one I was taught as a child. It was something about some guy who loves the little children, all the little children in the world — red, and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight — yeah, this fellow loves the little children of the world. He was apparently some wacko hippie type that roamed around with some buds, spewing a bunch of liberal BS, and certainly no one that any good Christian, for example, should be bothered about. The U.S. Christian version of that song has updated lyrics:
    Jesus loves the little children, Some of the children in the States, White and white and white and white, They are precious in his sight, Jesus loves some little children in the States.

    The naked hate being directed at imperiled children by the right wing Christians in this country is nauseating. Truly gut-wrenching.

  13. Kevin Kehres says

    On the bright side, it’s not every day that someone so clearly announces themselves as an amoral monster who would rather see children raped and killed than provide them with humanitarian aid.

    Nicely done, Senator.

    teawithbertrand “Sorry, but how exactly is this crisis a “direct result of President Obama’s lawlessness”?”
    It’s Obama’s fault for attempting to concentrate limited resources on illegals who commit criminal activity, rather than diluting those resource by treating all illegals the same.
    He’s history’s worst monster, basically.

  15. marcus says

    Ted Cruz is a worthless piece of shit.
    I wish I had something more erudite, profound and/or humorous to add but really what else is there to say?

    @ Raven, 5 & 6:

    If I recall correctly, most of the violence in central America is tied to drug cartels that supply the (illegal) U.S. drug market. So we could probably reduce the violence just through drug legalization or decriminalization. Heck, that would probably reduce a lot of the violence in the U.S. too.

    That is part of it.

    But the drug cartels might be more a symptom than anything else. Why are they there and why can’t the police and government deal with them. And why are these countries just plain very poor.

    And they’ve been floundering for many decades. In Guatamala, a progressive regime in the 1950’s was deposed by the CIA and a fundie xian military thug. Followed by a vicious civil war targeting the Mayans. El Salvador also had decades of low level internal war. And this was before the cartels showed up.

    These countries are very poor, not very unified, internally divided by ethnicity and class, and have weak central governments owned by heavily intermarried oligarchies. I suspect if we got rid of the drug cartels, they would just flounder around again until some other crisis happened.

  18. magistramarla says

    Hubby just read something that said that the most vicious gangs in those countries are a direct result of gang members in this country who were deported. They got back to their countries, found that law enforcement was corrupt and/or weak, and basically took over.
    So it seems that US policies may be the root cause of the problems.

    Did you not know?

    He a black man had the absolute audacity and temerity to get elected as President of the United States…there is no punishment good enough for that.

    One of you graphics gurus ought to put together a poster of all of the reptiliscum who hate immigrants along with photos of them and their lineage going back to the Ice Age when their ancestors are hypothesized to have come over the Bering Straits on a land bridge.

    Otoh, a blank sheet of cardstock says it all.

  21. says

    Years ago there was a parody in Mad Magazine about immigration. They posted a song based on Emma Lazarus’ poem:

    “Send me your tired, your poor,
    your huddled masses, yearning to be free

    And we’ll send them right back to you.
    We’ll send them right back to you!.”
