Ted Cruz faces ridicule after defending Tucker Carlson from Marine criticism

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has beef with the Marines.

It’s not about anything about America’s bloated military budget, endless wars, or billions of dollars spent building fighter jets that can’t do good fighting or flying, things that should be challenged by any American.

No, it’s about the Marine Corps leadership condemning right -wing spokesman and Fox News host Tucker Carlson after him ranted about the “femininity” of the American military.

“So we have new hairstyles and maternity flight suits. Pregnant women will fight our wars. It’s a mockery of the U.S. Military,” Carlson complained. “As China’s military has become more masculine in its gathering the largest navy in the world, our military needs to be like Joe Biden said more feminine, what feminine means because men and women are gone. Ultimately it has no control, and the Pentagon is keeping up with it. ”

The rebuke Fox News questioned head of female service members after her reactionary outbreak, but what Senator Cruz said was the response to Carlson from the Marine Expeditionary Force’s officially verified social media account.

The communications official who manages the Twitter account where this tweet was posted faced immediate opposition from supporters of Carlson’s right who thought the military should refrain from engaging in civilian political disputes and quickly deleted the post and issued an apology for the controversial territory.

Apparently, the apology didn’t go far enough for Ted Cruz.

He posted a conservative tweet signaling asking for a meeting with the Marine Corps brass at the Pentagon to discuss military politicking.

Oddly, Cruz – who spent part of his day on Jan. 6 blasting crowds at the Stop the Steal rally before the Capitol uprising – had nothing to say about military politicking when Trump’s appointees to the Pentagon was not sent. the National Guard to stop the violence in the halls of Congress that day or about the general’s quiet obedience as Trump attacked the military budget to pay for the construction of his useless border wall.

The response to Senator Cruz’s tweet was quick and vicious as the Twitterverse compared the Texas senator’s anger at criticism of Carlson to his gentle reception of Donald Trump’s attacks on his wife and father in the 2016 Republican primary.

It’s a shame that Senator Cruz couldn’t find anything more productive to do in his time other than shilling for TV personalities who promote white-supremacy.

If Congressional business isn’t interesting enough to occupy his attention on a day-to-day basis, there are many more qualified Democrats willing to move on and take his place.
