Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz is quickly becoming one of the more controversial candidates in the race. During a recent interview, he compared President Barack Obama to ISIS.
Cruz pointed out that Obama has made “the same argument that the terrorists use.”
“Not only is this president unwilling to go after, to call out radical Islam by its name, but at times President Obama has acted like an apologist for radical Islam,” Cruz began.
“And President Obama gave a speech, I was sitting at the prayer breakfast, he said, ‘Yes, ISIS is committing acts of terror, but Christians and Jews had committed acts of terror, too,’” he continued. “Now, last I checked the Crusades ended 900 years ago. I don’t think it’s asking too much to ask this president to stay in the current millennium.”
“And the reason I say he’s being an apologist is because that argument is the exact same argument that the terrorists use,” Cruz concluded. “ISIS, when they are beheading Christians, when they are crucifying Christians, they invoke the Crusades and the Inquisition.”
What do you think? Do you applaud Cruz for vocalizing his beliefs?
