Ted Cruz: Israel, Islamophobia, and then Liberty

Posted by Kevin Hack on March 24, 2016 in Blog

As his nomination to be the Republican Party’s candidate of choice becomes increasingly more likely, critics of Donald Trump have continued to emphasize the decidedly bigoted nature of his “security” proposals, specifically as they pertain to Latino and Muslim Americans. Senator Ted Cruz, Mr. Trump’s strongest remaining competition for the Republican nomination, has been gaining reluctant support from the Republican Party. Sen. Cruz’s own record, within and beyond the Senate, has hardly been without its own examples of bigoted behavior. With the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) conference in...
