I’m no fan of Ted Cruz, the Republican presidential candidate and Senator from Texas. He rubs me the wrong way and I don’t like his pre-Senate moves as a lawyer. But today, I stand in defense of Cruz. And his children.
Ted Cruz produced a funny Christmas video, poking fun at politics. His children appeared in the lighthearted video, and it made me smile. But it apparently pissed off a cartoonist at the Washington Post who scribbled an animated drawing representing his children as monkeys. And they published it.
Forget how mean spirited that is; we expect that from liberals. But now the Post won’t apologize for posting a cartoon that depicts Hispanic children as monkeys - a clearly racist jab at Cruz. What’s really wrong at the racist Washington Post?
