Skip to comments.NYT GOES BIRTHER: ATTACKS 'CANADIAN-BORN' CRUZ, CALLS HIM 'MCCARTHYITE'

Liberals, the mainstream media, and establishment Republicans often reveal which conservatives they fear by their level of disdain and vitriol.
This week, they put their crosshairs on freshman Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), a Tea Party conservative of Hispanic descent who undermines the mainstream media's ability to advance their false notion that being a minority and Tea Partier are mutually exclusive. He is a conservative who showed no desire to defer to the Senate's "courtly" ways, the preferences of the institution's old bulls.
The sinking ship that is the New York Times, the so-called paper of record, provided evidence of what it fears most in its Saturday edition: strong, distinct full-throated conservative voices from folks who ain't "country club," geriatric, and white. The Washington Post and Politico joined the times in assailing Cruz this week for similar reasons. The Times did a thorough review of the freshman senator's stunning seven-week run:

They have a lot more to fear from Cruz regardless of whether he’s eligible to run for president or not.
Just what we need, new senators coming into DC and being assimilated into the machine....its worked so well for the past 50 years</sarcasm>...don’t know much about this Cruz fellow, but anyone willing to shake up the status-quo is OK in my book.
Why even have confirmation hearings if it is already pre-determined that someone should be confirmed?
Libs are most vociferous agains Republicans who happen to be of non=caucasian ancestry . . . Cruz, Rubio, West . . . racist much?
it is painfull obvious the left wing media sets their news by reading the NYT. No news gathering or thought.
Chris Mathers looked LITERALLY drunk this morning.
The mccarthy meme does not counter the fact mccarthy was 100% right about the communists.
The racists at the NYT only attack conservative minority members who don’t know their place. And of course, “their place” is feeding at the government trough with Democrat minority members.
“The mccarthy meme does not counter the fact mccarthy was 100% right about the communists.”
Why would they let the facts taint their opinion! Ever notice there was little mention of the commies and fellow travelors in the government in the 30s-50’s when those details became known after the fall of the USSR? Little mention of Ted the Swimmer’s activities either. The press makes me sick.
The NYT are racist and that is not a joke.
I guarantee you if hispanics started voting republican, liberals would start depicting illegal immigrants as the most loathsome creatures on earth. They already do this with any whites, blacks and hispanics who think the “wrong” way.
Hispanics will start voting R when GOPe fields a charismatic Hispanic candidate.
One of the main characteristics of politicians winning elections in Texas. Politically speaking the people Of Texas are spilling alot of establishment blood. I would bet money John Cornyn is in the process of reevaluating some of his "bi partisan" views...they hit with a thud when they were unveiled and he hasn't recovered since.
McCarthyite! Wow, makes me think of my very intelligent son (now a brand-new engineer) who graduated high school in 2008. He once brought up the fact that his public high school history teacher spent a full week talking (teaching?) about Joe McCarthy. On his own, my son surmised that it was just an effort to introduce to kids the idea that opposing or exposing communism is ridiculous, and that it’s “not cool.”
Love that photo. It says it all. Schumer looks positively insane and in need of a straight jacket. Stat.
We need ten more in the Senate like Ted Cruz, then we will be getting somewhere. Senate Conservatives Fund has already started to work on this for 2014. They have already identified the states we need to concentrate on that have vulnerable Senate seats coming up.
The NYT is identifying who they fear.
Cruz is on the right path. We need more like him.
As one who signed on during the first primary, my heart beats faster every time I see Cruz on TV...
Correction to previous post... I have not seen TV news since early November 7th. I see Ted on youtube or some other internet source... I also view the other Ted the same way...
I can not stand to look at or hear that communist dictator currently occupying the Whitehouse.
They fear him. He is eligible to run for president since his parents were both Americans. He scares them because he is a contender for 2016 and the MSM will have a hard time attacking the GOP as the ‘angry white’ party if we have 2 Hispanics running. They’ll try, but Cruz has bite. With a little coaching, I’m sure he could decimate the media in a way Romney couldn’t. It’s time we smacked these people down.
Ted Cruz' gravitational pull is indeed starting to yank Cornyn to the right. John's been doing the McCain/Hatch "I have an election coming" conservative camoflage dance lately.
