    They prove themselves as bigots, as do those that are running around in their mutual masturbatory celebration of a bunch of bigots booing a man for stating the need to stand together with Christians and Jews.

    If you bother reading their charter on their websites, Cruz's comments are nearly verbatim what they PURPORT to believe. Yet when he SPOKE those words...well...the truth came out loud and clear.

    Certain aspects of it? Hell yes. We should be far more aggressive in targeting the producers of the product as well as the dealers.

    Apparently he doesnt tolerate bigotry, unlike those that cheer and celebrate bigots.

    Keep digging. You are already in up to your eyeballs Maybe you can reach China. Brings us back some takeout...some of the good stuff.

They can claim whatever they want, but the mere fact that you refuse (probably because you can't) to give me an example of a popular Tea Partier that is not an evangelical/social conservative shows that their website is only rhetoric. In politics, rhetoric is meaningless. It's actions that define a person/movement/party. If you take political figures/movements/parties at face-value, then, not to be mean, but you're a fool. Obama claims to be a constitutionalist (he even taught constitutional law) yet he has obviously proven otherwise. Does he defend the constitution simply because he says he does? Is the Democratic Party "pro-peace" simply because they say they are? Is the Republican Party "small government" simply because they say they are? What makes the Tea Party any different? The Tea Party can talk about their supposed "values" all day long, but when every majority representative (and I, for the third time, challenge you to prove me otherwise) takes a strong social conservative stance, those "values" are meaningless.
    And "not to be mean", you claim to be a libertarian.

    No theyre not. Their web site does not sound like a presidential campaign speech just like any candidate would make. Israel, Israel , Israel is not the sole focus of a middle eastern Christian group without a single mention of yashidi or minority Muslims being persecuted.

    Which I saw, and I initially thought was meant to convey how ignorant cruz was. There's a whole list of persecuted minorities there and it's not the usual election tripe of Israel being the only persecuted ethnicity in the Middle East. There are many. This is the thing western politicians talk about vis a vie that part of the world 24/7 and the only thing cruz can talk about at an event that requires some semblance of nuance regarding the interplay of ethnicities in the Middle East is Israel.

    Israel is of huge importance. It's worth mentioning as a liberal democracy, which initially got applauded. It's not worth hijacking the event for a standard FP campaign speech for a traditional ally instead of a minority (among others) in that region that's been ignored for years.

    You know...the absolute fact is that organization is supposed to stand in defense of ALL...so that they booed him over his Israel comments just expose who they really are. That people are so full of hatred they are gleefully jumping into the sack with hate filled bigots...well...says a lot about them as well.
