Typical: Washington Post Uber-Liberal Attacks Ted Cruz’s Children

Leftists will do anything to uphold their dogma, and will rationalize it any way possible

(Breitbart) Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), a 2016 GOP presidential candidate who’s currently surging in polls six weeks ahead of the first primary contests, fired back at a Washington Post cartoonist for mocking his daughters Caroline and Catherine.

“Classy,” Cruz tweeted in response, obviously sarcastically.

Telnaes–who won the Pulitzer Prize drawing cartoons mocking Republicans during the 2000 presidential election recount controversy–wrote a lengthy diatribe attempting to explain why she abandoned journalistic norms to attack Caroline, 7, and Catherine, 5.

“There is an unspoken rule in editorial cartooning that a politician’s children are off-limits,” Telnaes admits. “People don’t get to choose their family members so obviously it’s unfair to ridicule kids for their parent’s behavior while in office or on the campaign trail- besides, they’re children. There are plenty of adults in the political world who act childish, so there is no need for an editorial cartoonist to target actual children.”

At that point, she tried explaining why she was breaking the rules. Her argument centers around the belief that Cruz–the senator and candidate–includes his daughters on the campaign trail and in some videos from his campaign.

You can see the cartoon at the Breitbart link, because, surprise!, the Washington Post has pulled it, and left in it’s place

Editor’s note from Fred Hiatt: It’s generally been the policy of our editorial section to leave children out of it. I failed to look at this cartoon before it was published. I understand why Ann thought an exception to the policy was warranted in this case, but I do not agree.

No apology, no “we’re sorry”. Typical. And Ann has deleted her tweet with the cartoon. But, she did tweet about Ted featuring his kids in political adds, one in which he’s reading to them. You know, like all candidates do, at least those who claim they are family oriented. Obviously, she thought this gave her license to draw them as monkeys, because Leftists have no moral filters. And, then, out of the blue, she decides to tweet about D.C. organ grinders

No worries: Leftists will find other inventive ways to play in the slime.

    Rafael Cruz IS a terrible person but his kids should be off-limits to the media. Period.

    As bad as Cruz is, the cartoonist may be worse.

    Maybe they should go after that gross pig Donald Trump for wanting to bang his own daughter.

  2. Hoss says:

    Yeah, Cruz is terrible, wanting the government to act like responsible actors and all that grown-up shit, blah. It’s much more fun and awesome to be the shitbird that makes it rain at your house by using other people’s money.

  3. Jeffery says:

    I was defending the children of Tail-Gunner Ted against the even more vile cartoonist.

    By definition, anyone who voluntarily chooses to be a Republican is terrible. In addition, he’s of short stature, and in general, short men are not to be trusted, and almost always carry a chip on their tiny little shoulders (e.g., conservative hero, Vlad Putin). There are exceptions, Teddy Roosevelt was only 5’10” and was one of the greats. But at a diminutive 5’8″, Cruz may be tall for a Cuban-Canadian, but he’s running for President of these United States.

    Of course, next to the current Republican leader, that disgusting orange-hued pig with the flaxen polyester “hair”, Rafael looks like a giant.

    Ted can defend himself and his family quite well without the help of a vile little leftist liar who regularly gets his ass handed to him by an assortment of commenters.

  5. Jeffery says:

    Uh-oh, drowningpuppies is peeved, he must be short too. More of a dachshund than a Great Dane, huh?

    It’s OK, you can rise above it.

    Says the guy who has raped women.

    Stop drinking Jeffery. It makes you look dumber than normal.

  7. Jeffery says:

    Uh-oh, gitarcarver is peeved! Are you short like drowingpuppies? So you think it’s OK that the leader of your Republican Party suggested he’d have sex with his own daughter if they weren’t related? Gross. He said it.

    You hateful Republican, Christianist, Caucasian, Conservatives need to come to terms with what you have wrought. Donald Trump is the logical extension of your policies and hate. A billionaire demagogue not constrained by societal conventions who can mobilize the 30% of Americans who think as you do.

    Both you and your fluffer have suggested that I’ve ass-raped children and now raped women.

    Is there a lower limit to your behaviors? Any at all? You claim to be a Christian, yet I’ve never met Christians as evil.

    Merry Christmas!
