Ted Cruz suggests that Hillary Clinton should be "spanked" for not telling the truth. Because there is nothing misogynistic about that!

Courtesy of HuffPo:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton lied to the American people about Benghazi, and now voters will "administer a spanking," which is how Cruz disciplines his 5-year-old daughter when she doesn't tell the truth. 

"What happened in Benghazi was a national disgrace," Cruz said, responding to a question from a voter on Friday asking how the Republican presidential hopeful would hold those accountable for the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Libya that left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. 

"In my house, if my daughter Catherine, the 5-year-old, says something she knows to be false, she gets a spanking," Cruz said, standing on the bar of a local shop here, looking into the crowd. 

In the Democratic primary, Cruz said voters have the opportunity to hold Clinton accountable. 

"In America, the voters have a way of administering a spanking," Cruz said with a smirk. "I can tell you this: As president ... there will be accountability for Benghazi."

So not only is Cruz using a sexually charge metaphor concerning Hillary Clinton but he also admits beating his five year old daughter.

Go ahead argue that spanking your child is not akin to a "beating," And then visualize a seven foot tall, 300 pound weightlifter, throwing you over their lap and laying into you as hard as they can.

That is about the equivalent.

ANY parent in 2016 who is still using corporal punishment to discipline their children should be forced to attend parenting and behavior modification classes. There are dozens and dozens of more effective alternatives to striking your children.

Hey, I popped my daughter on the butt as well, twice. And she remembers both of them. Trust me.

But that was a long time ago, and I certainly know better now.

In my job I work with children who come from homes where their behaviors, many of them the result of chemical imbalances in their brains or trauma they suffered as infants, are met with increasing levels of violence until finally the state steps in and takes them away.

By then the damage has been done, and it takes years of patience and therapy to partially undo the damage.

So for Ted Cruz to suggest that a one time Senator, former Secretary of State, and current presidential candidate should be struck as a powerful man might strike a young child, is disgusting.

By the way, who is actually surprised to learn that Cruz's daughter lies to him?

After all look who she has for a role model.

    It's not so much it's a sexual innuendo, so much as it is a man telling everyone that it is perfectly acceptable to hit a woman, and also to treat women as if they are children.

      And how come those 18 embassy attacks and 70 deaths under GWB were not 'a national disgrace?' I recall no hearings at all on that, nor torture, not wiretapping of all of us...all real disgraces.
      By the way, McConnell is refusing to pass a bill in the Senate declaring Teddy a citizen (like they did for Panama-born McCain in 2008.) Old Teddy maybe is being 'spanked' for calling Mitch a liar on the floor....KARMA, Ted. Or maybe God doesn't like you as much as you think he does?

      Ted Cruz seems to have no friends in the Senate whatsoever. McConnell is refusing to introduce a bill, so there will never be a question of it passing; it will never even exist.

  3. I'm sure the evangelicals love this: spare the rod and spoil the child. They won't see anything wrong in hitting a five-year-old child.

      The bible refers to a shepherd's rod or staff which is not use to beat the sheep with, but to guide them down the path the shepherd wants them to take.

      Thank you, 1:47. The rod is also to rescue a sheep that might have fallen down the hillside (that's what the crook is for). "Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me."

      What Religionists have done (as they always do) is take a culture's moral wisdom and use it for evil. God's Own Party (GOP, see?) would toss that hippie Jesus out on his long-hair-covered ear. "Love thy neighbor! Snort! Sell all and give to the poor! Riiiiiiight! What a communist!" Jesus also said, "Let the little children come to me." Since he was not a Catholic Priest, we can give him the benefit of the doubt on that one.

      I have memories of being flipped over a chair to receive licks of a belt, or told "GRAB YOUR ANKLES!" so my butt would be a better target for the board. And I don't forgive that after forty years. If those kind of memories rise up in the minds of Cruz listeners yet they remain charmed by him, oh they SO deserve him.

  4. Trump or Cruz -- a real Hobson's choice. What if the moderate Republican voters just stayed home this time. Wouldn't blame them. Or does choosing to be Republican void moderation? voting for anyone or thing...for these are not men, they are travesties of manhood.

    So does Cruz' wife spank him for all the times he has lied? When I was a young kid, I received spankings. But as I grew older, I told my parents if they tried to spank me anymore, they would have a fight to contend with. The spankings stopped immediately.

    These republican idiots need a mobile phone app that allows them to rehearse their sound bites. They could speak what they intend to say and it could give them an indication of how racist, mysogonistic or xenophobic their intended statement rates (trust me, it will never score a zero on any of those scales).

    They need this app because they seem totally tone deaf in their own recognition in how their statements are perceived

      On the contrary, they know exactly how their statements are perceived--as racist, misogynistic, and xenophobic.

      Their base eats it all up!

      Your app idea is a good one, only in reverse. They can take turns one-upping each other.

    2. Why this shit happens to Ted Cruz part 792:41 PM

      Cruz is hoist on own toxicity.

      "During an interview on ABC’s This Week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) refused to help Ted Cruz settle his citizenship issue by passing a bill that would declare that Sen. Cruz is a natural born citizen."

      http://www.politicususa.com/2016/01/10/mitch-mcconnell-refusing-pass-bill-ted-cruz-eligible-president.html


      Just last September:

      "In his blistering speech on Monday, Cruz said that McConnell is “not willing to lift a finger” to take on Planned Parenthood or Iran and said that, despite massive GOP majorities, “Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi remain the de facto leaders in the Senate and the House.” He also accused McConnell of using an “unprecedented procedural trick” by denying Cruz a roll call protest vote on Monday, a move that was backed by the vast majority of the Senate GOP conference but opposed by Cruz and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah.).

      On Tuesday, the blackout continued, even though Cruz had beckoned voters to watch his attempt to again force a vote to disrupt the spending bill. But he couldn’t make this move without some agreement from his colleagues, and they were unwilling to give it to him.

      “Ted has chosen to make this really personal and chosen to call people dishonest in leadership and call them names which really goes against the decorum and also against the rules of the Senate,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a rival of Cruz’s for the GOP presidential nomination who has earned a tepid endorsement from McConnell, said on Fox News Radio. “As a consequence, he can’t get anything done legislatively. He is pretty much done for and stifled.”

      Cruz declined to comment for this story when asked about the box-out by fellow senators. And perhaps there wasn’t much left to say: He’d again insulted McConnell by comparing him to Reid, boasted about Boehner’s downfall and exhausted his procedural leverage — leaving Cruz to tout his war against McConnell on the campaign trail."

  18. From the article: ANY parent in 2016 who is still using corporeal punishment …

    "Corporeal" is not the same as "corporal". The adjectival corporal means “affecting the body,” as in the phrase “corporal punishment.” … Corporeal, on the other hand, denotes anything that is tangible as opposed to spiritual. http://www.dailywritingtips.com/corporal-vs-corporeal/

    I have to wonder how many times he's spanked, swatted, demeaned and beat his wife? If he's proud enough to tell the world he spanks his daughter when she misbehaves, then something tells me there's more going on behind closed doors he DOESN'T want people to know.
    That's sick enough, but to try to impugn a female opponent's character using this as an example is even worse. Mrs Cruz has her reasons to sit down and shut up aka "Obey", she's married to him and allows it to go on. I'd love to see him try this with, say, Christie, Trump, Carlie "I sunk HP" Fiorina or any of his opponents.

      3:57, In comparison to you, as an adult. That is what it would be like for a small child to be spanked by an adult.

      I spanked once, without thinking, because I was so tired and frustrated. The amazingly loud sound of a diaper getting even a gentle smack scared both of us and it never happened again! That and the horror of what I did when I should have been the adult in the situation.

    Either today or yesterday a female walking
    in a park in Brooklyn with her father at 9:30 P.M. ,five men took turns raping her
    at gunpoint. If this coward was President at this time, he would make it impossible for
    her to get an abortion if need be. He would
    make it impossible for his own little girl
    if it happened to her, even at a young age. It would be both their faults.
    He is revolting! Add the word revolting to
    Trump. He can't take his eyes off of his own
    daughter, and admitted the fact.

    if need be. Plus he would put the blame on her for being in a park ,with her father

    What is with Cruz and children?

    He reads green eggs and ham to the senate, he uses his children to mock Hilary, then complains when the media calls him out on it, now he wants to spank Hilary.
