PBS: Ted Cruz and Father are ‘Satanic’

Yes, they actually said “Satanic.”

A PBS panel of so-called journalists on the “PBS News Hour” show called Sen. Ted Cruz “Satanic,” then doubled down by likewise labeling Cruz’s father, Rafael, who is an evangelical pastor.

New York Times columnist David Brooks was asked a simple question by host Judy Woodruff, whether any of the GOP presidential candidates was “making any headway.”

Brooks said that Donald Trump had “ceilinged out,” that Ben Carson’s campaign was collapsing and that Cruz was starting to surge.

Then Brooks said, “Cruz is somehow beginning to get some momentum from Iowa and elsewhere. And so people are either mimicking him, which Rubio is doing a little by adopting some of the dark and Satanic tones that Cruz has. …”

When Woodruff asked him to clarify, he said that Cruz’s speeches are angry and apocalyptic and full of warnings about enemies.

“It is an ugly world in Ted Cruz’s world,” Brooks said.

Then Mother Jones Washington Bureau Chief David Corn (which is sort of like being the bureau chief for Pravda) chimed in about Cruz’s father.

“Well, actually, if you go to a speech from his dad, who is a pastor, evangelical, Rafael Cruz, it actually is Satanic,” Corn said. “He — I watched a speech in which he said Satan was behind the Supreme Court decision to legalize gay marriage.”

And all of this was said amid smiles and giggling on the part of the three so-called journalists. They were just having a great old time.

Corn in the past has freely flung around the “Satanic” label in articles about Carson and other Republicans, but Brooks claims to follow his Jewish faith, so he at least should be aware of the impact of casting such aspersions.

It just underscores how desperate the Left is to cling to power. They’ll do anything to stop the leading GOP candidates from taking back the White House and undoing the damage eight years of Obama has brought about.
