Presidential candidate Ted Cruz told Sean Hannity on FOX News Thursday that the Obama-Clinton plan to import Islamic terrorists into America under the guise of Syrian refugees is “utter lunacy” and shot back at Obama’s two attacks against the Texas senator spoken on foreign soil, smears in which he called Cruz “un-American.”
“It really is remarkable that twice this week President Obama has attacked me directly and both times he’s done so from foreign soil, first in Turkey — where he called me un-American — and then in Manila where he said I was ‘offensive.’
Apparently what he deems offensive is what you and I and millions of Americans have been saying, which is that the Obama-Clinton plan to bring in tens of thousands of Syrian Muslim Refugees to America is utter lunacy.
At a time when ISIS has declared war, at a time when radical Islamic terrorists want to murder as many Americans as possible, at a time that the Obama administration admits it can’t vet these refugees — the head of the FBI said they lack the information to be able to ascertain whether these refugees are in fact ISIS terrorists — it is the essence of reasonableness and common sense to say we shouldn’t be bringing in tens of thousands of refugees who may include ISIS terrorists.”
On Thursday, Ted Cruz introduced two bills that would deal with the Syrian refugee matter. One bill would force any American who joined a terrorist group overseas to surrender their U.S. citizenship, while the other bill would “immediately bar refugees” from any country “including Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, or Yemen, that contains territory substantially controlled by a foreign terrorist organization.”
Both bills were blocked by Democrats who denied Cruz’s request for unanimous consent to pass the bills.
Obama referring to anyone other than himself as “un-American,” is the height of hypocrisy considering his anti-American stance on virtually every policy idea he has supported, like releasing five notorious Islamic terrorists, “The Taliban Five,” for one traitor, Bowe Bergdahl, or abusing the power of the IRS by targeting his political opponents, or unconstitutionally seizing the telephone and email records of reporters, or lying to Americans about the cause of the Benghazi terrorist attacks, blaming them on a “YouTube video,” or the multiple lies told about Obamacare in order to take over America’s healthcare system, or unconstitutionally spying on Americans emails and telephone records without a search warrant, etc.
Those are truly un-American activities, and it’s a list that’s much greater than the ones listed above for the sake of brevity.
Oh, and one more un-American activity, Obama. The one where you ignore the advice of your top advisers and push to import more Islamists at the expense of America’s national security.
