Senator Ted Cruz Booed Off Stage At Christian Event

Shares 514

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas was booed off the stage at a “Defense of Christians” event after declaring his unequivocal support for the state of Israel.

From Breitbart: 

Cruz, the keynote speaker at the new “In Defense Of Christians” organization’s dinner in Washington DC, had offered the crowd–a number of whom were Christians from the Middle East, including Palestinian Christians–public support for Israel. After doing so, some members of the crowd booed at Cruz, and they persisted until he left the stage, noting their hatred and saying he can’t stand with them if they don’t stand with Israel.

“Tonight, in Washington, should have been a night of unity as we came together for the inaugural event for a group that calls itself ‘In Defense of Christians.’ Instead, it unfortunately deteriorated into a shameful display of bigotry and hatred,” Cruz said in a statement provided to Breitbart News. “When I spoke in strong support of Israel and the Jewish people, who are being persecuted and murdered by the same vicious terrorists who are also slaughtering Christians, many Christians in the audience applauded.  But, sadly, a vocal and angry minority of attendees at the conference tried to shout down my expression of solidarity with Israel.”

“I told the attendees that those who hate Israel also hate America,” Cruz said. “That those who hate Jews also hate Christians. And that anyone who hates Israel and the Jewish people is not following the teachings of Christ. These statements were met with angry boos. I went on to tell the crowd that Christians in the Middle East have no better friend than Israel. That Christians can practice their faith free of persecution in Israel. And that ISIS, al Qaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah, along with their state sponsors in Syria and Iran, are all part of the same cancer, murdering Christians and Jews alike. Hate is hate, and murder is murder.”

    Why do we have to stand with Isreal? They have their own 2 feet to stand on, and their own money to buy bullets with. We should be wiping our own collective behind, and they should be wiping theirs.

      Careful… don’t say “collective”… some self-titled conservative will come along and call you a Communist.

You and we all are more at risk of being bombed and shot by a crazy Muslim Arab! Wake up and smell the coffee, do you have a thinking brain!???????

        • Ryan

          You know, I’m not sure this will help, but if you wake up, walk down the street, and run in to am idiot, you ran in to am idiot. If you run in to idiots all day, you’re the idiot.

        • Know ‘Em

          Now that was a convincing argument………ha ha ha.

          Get back to me when you hear a solution that isn’t empty words designed to fill empty heads with emotional imagery.

        It’s the internet. It’s only a matter of time before some a hole turns any statement in to something it isn’t. All it means is that our country has its on enourmous deficit and problems to address. Also, the Israelis have the means to take care of themselves.

    • HugeGovtDebtFailure

      What is wrong with your brain?! They have hundreds of Nobel Prize winners, the Arabs have only a couple. Also they are almost the ONLY DEMOCRACY in the entire CRAZY mid-east, where Arab Muslims are murdering CHRISTIANS, you nut! Do you get it yet????? Israel is also only the size of New Jersey!!! Tiny! And strong and great!!! You will reap the judgement of what you have sown with your ridiculous words. What does it take for you to stand with a country??? These are the best of the best – they go to aid all injured and flooded and earth-quake victims all over the world, one of the only mid-east countries to do this…… Wake up and get a clue. (if it’s possible with a brain such as yours) Unbelievable!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Ryan

        BHO is a Nobel prize winner. So what. Who cares. If the best reason you have is that God said so, let the churches pay for the foreign aid to Israel. We shouldn’t be sending foreign aid to anyone until all of our own homeless vets and kids have a full belly and a roof over their head.

      • Know ‘Em

        Hmmmmm…….that’s the best you could come up with?

    • Joe King

      Do you not support your friends? Probabley not, but anyway same thing

      • Ryan

        Sure. But they still have to buy their own stuff.

    • sdafygh

      Well, according to the Christian faith, Israel is to be defended. It doesn’t make sense for a Christian to boo support of Israel. I’m assuming the ones that booed were simply atheists that went to that conference to stir up trouble since they have nothing better to do than to try and harm other people.

      • Ryan

        Even Thomas Jefferson declared the United States not to be a Christian nation. Let the churches pass the plate and send the dough, but they can afford to take care of themselves. As a country, we are already broke. We don’t need to be spending money doing something that those people can afford to do themselves.

      Because what Zionists did to Palestine is what they are getting ready to do to the US. America acculturated to this MERC nightmare participating and will itself thus come under occupation in a similar manner. US police are being trained on IDF methods America’s only response moralizing a Zionist Sanhedrin senate of 23 and their Nasi administrator that is moving in small steps to derail the constitution. Morality doesn’t work on the inverse hermeneutic, Americans are too stupid to figure this out, nor are they perceiving Ted Cruz as a Zionist. HUGE mistake. Americans are ha ha ha pee ness junkies in perpetuity. They don’t learn from their mistakes.

  • lungshot

    Any discussion of the Israel/arab conflict without mention of the repercussions of the balfour declaration/sykes_picot agreement/hussein_mcmahon correspondance is useless in understanding the conflict. Learn your history folks!

    Not supporting a political nation and/or its actions is not the same as hating Jews.

    • HugeGovtDebtFailure

      You still have to justify with logic why you would not support such a productive Democracy. If you can’t I will tell you that you hate Jews, YES.

      • Layla Godey

        1) No. No I don’t. I don’t have to “justify” anything.
        2) As I stated, not supporting a *political* nation is not the same as hating that nation’s people. I will tell you, that you don’t seem to be able to distinguish between the two.

      • Ryan

        How about the fact that they have the means to take care of themselves, and we have homeless vets right here in our own country that aren’t being taken care of.

        • sdafygh

          those veterans fought in horrible and worthless wars. they deserve nothing but pain for their actions. if they were stupid enough to be brainwashed into believing they were doing any good in vietnam, they simply need to die. sure, fighting hitler was fine. but, come on, america hardly did anything. they deserve their homelessness and suffering for immorally making actual innocent people suffer.

          the only thing worth fighitng against today is Isis. if someone joins the service now in the hopes of fighting against those demons, then they deserve praise and deserve to be called a hero.

          veterans of old age today? they deserve nothing of the kind.

            You dont get to pick the specifics of who you’re going to fight when you enlist. You enlist to serve your country. You become property of the US government, they tell you who, when, and where to fight. They were simply serving, your problem is really with the elected officials calling the shots, you’re just too short sighted to see it.sure, there are plenty of Chris Kyle’s out there that will say they beat up a moron like you. There are also a few guys that actually will do it. Maybe you’ll run in to one sometime.

          • Know ‘Em

            Ok, now go outside and play with the other kids and leave mama’s computer alone.

  • Know ‘Em

    Well, he showed some real “tea party competence” with that speech. I mean, how hard would it be NOT to offend the group, like he was undoubtedly paid to do? Unreal.

    Israel is the world’s number 1 terrorist organization. They themselves have been masquerading as ISIS backed by our own CIA. Everyone had better do their own research and see for themselves the evil agenda behind a Israel. Israel masterminded our 9/11 tragedy and you want to stand with them? Israel is in Ukraine right now committing genocide with Obama’s help. Israel has been murdering people for hundreds of years. Israel controls our government not only through AIPAC lobbying but many many people in congress hold dual citizenship with Israel and the US. This is illegal but then to Israel it is all about control of the world for the NWO and greed. You need to research religion and the origins of Jews. Chhist was not a Jew. Christ was Judean. I traced their evil history back to Mongolia and the Serpent People. Jews are the Synagogue of Satan. I have shared many links supporting evidence of all I state here. Use your own eyes and view this evidence for it is overwhelming. Israel wishes to destroy us from within. I stand with America not Israel. I pray you do your research and realize the treachery Israel has been hiding from the world.
