• Cruz: ‘The Overwhelming Majority of Violent Criminals Are Democrats’

    GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blasted the media Monday for “hoping desperately” that the Planned Parenthood shooting was carried out by a Republican, when in reality “the overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats.”

    The Colorado Planned Parenthood shooting “has really displayed the ugly underbelly of the media,” Cruz claimed during his appearance on the Hugh Hewitt Show. “You know, every time you have some sort of violent crime or mass killing, you can almost see the media salivating, hoping, hoping, desperately that the murderer happens to be a Republican so they can use it to try to paint their political enemies.”

    “Here’s the simple and undeniable fact. The overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats,” he contended. “The media doesn’t report that. What they report, and there’s a reason why the Democrats for years have been viewed as soft on crime because they go in and they appoint to the bench judges who release violent criminals, they go in and they do what Barack Obama tried to do, which is appoint a lawyer who voluntarily represented for free, a cop killer to a senior Justice Department position.”

    The Texas senator argued that the reason Democrats want convicted felons to be able to vote is because they know most of them will vote for Democrats.

    “There’s a reason why the Democrats for years have been viewed as soft on crime–the Democrats know convicted felons tend to vote Democrat,” he lamented. “Every time there is a terrible crime, they are so excited, come on, please, one of these be a Republican so that we can try to paint the other side, it is one of the more egregious examples of media bias and it is something that we see over and over and over again.”
