“Don’t you understand that when a fellow like me looks at the landscape and sees the depravity, the perversion — redefining marriage and telling us that marriage is not between a man and a woman? Come on Iowa! It’s nonsense. It is evil. It’s wicked,” Robertson told the crowd.
“It’s sinful. They want us to swallow it, you say. We have to run this bunch out of Washington, D.C. We have to rid the earth of them. Get them out of there. Ted Cruz loves God.”
When Cruz appeared on stage, he reflected praise back at Robertson. “What an extraordinary human being,” the candidate said, claiming that “God makes every one of us unique, but some are uniquer than others.”
“What a voice Phil has to speak out for the love of Jesus,” Cruz added. “What a joyful, cheerful, unapologetic voice of truth Phil Robertson is.”
Oh yeah, he's "uniquer" alright.
If "uniquer" is another word for intolerant bible thumping asshole that is.
Essentially this is how Cruz won Iowa. By surrounded himself with religious fanatics, homophobes, and anti-government anarchists who think that Cruz is going to single handedly destroy the government and introduce some kind of hyper Christian theocracy that will hand the country back to them on a silver platter.
The fact that it worked should send a chill down ALL of our spines.
