New Reaganesque Ted Cruz Ad ‘Scorpion’ Released Just in Time for GOP Debate

The Ted Cruz for President campaign released a new ad today that will run during tonight’s GOP presidential debate in the key states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada.

The 30-second ad, called “Scorpion,” uses a scorpion to depict the threat of radical Islamic terrorism, without having to call it by name.

“There’s a scorpion in the desert,” the voice says in the ad, which is scheduled to run during the debates on CNN, and on FOX News during the post-debate coverage in the early primary states. “For most of us, its venom is a clear and deadly threat. But others refused to even speak its name,” the ad continues.

As Legal Insurrection pointed out, the ad brings back memories of the 1984 Ronald Reagan ad, “The Bear,” representing the evil empire of the Communist Soviet Union, the oppressive regime that Reagan brought to its knees during the Cold War era.

“Since the scorpion seeks our destruction, isn’t it time we recognize the scorpion for what it is before it strikes again?” the voice in the ad asks as it appears that Ted Cruz’s famous cowboy boots are about ready to squish the scorpion.

The Obama Regime, hellbent at protecting its favored religion, Islam, continues to refuse to call radical Islamic terrorism — radical Islamic terrorism, twisting itself into pretzels using terms like “workplace violence” and other absurd descriptors as Muslim terrorists around the world commit human atrocities while shouting “Allahu Akbar.”
