Senator Ted Cruz of Texas is a favorite media target.

He’s smart; he’s Republican and he’s actually pretty good at social media.

Plus, even leftists had to admit his beard looks quite decent, which angered a lot of them.

Now Cruz’s latest move has the liberal media up in arms, especially since he praised one of the favorite objects of the Democrats’ conspiracy theories.

The kerfuffle happened recently on social media after conservative commentator Pardes Seleh posted a comparison of a Russian army recruitment ad with a recent US army recruitment ad.

Cruz Slams ‘Woke’ and ‘Emasculated’ US Army Ad

Cruz commented on the two recruitment ads saying maybe it wasn’t a great idea to sell out the military to a woke left-wing agenda, and liberals went nuts. 

Leftist women in particular felt he was insulting being a woman; however, Cruz was obviously referring to the woke LGBT nonsense propaganda cartoon recruitment video that makes our military look like a Pride Parade. 

Others claimed this means Cruz is “pro-Russian” or spreading Russian disinformation since he simply admitted their ad is actually good, unlike the garbage US ad. 

“Ted Cruz is obviously sharing this video that I’ve seen bouncing around some of the most violent and anti-American Telegram accounts,” said thinktank analyst Reid Ross, at the Center for Analysis of the Radical Right.

Is Cruz Wrong?

Some are saying the US ad could be effective at getting non-combat or generally non-army types to join up; meanwhile, others all over YouTube and online are saying the ad is humiliating, soft, and embarrassing to our Armed Forces. 

In my opinion, Cruz is right that a Disney-style cartoon about Pride Parades and gay weddings doesn’t belong in an army ad. It’s simply strange and un-patriotic.

In addition, it doesn’t do justice to our fighting men and women; it also makes foreign adversaries see America as weak or liberal (which is basically the same thing).

The left can pile on Cruz and claim he hates women, gay people or anyone else, but at the end of the day this isn’t about that. It’s about what kind of image and attitude we want our military to be projecting into the world. 

I don’t know about you, but nobody I know signed up to the US military to go fight for gay rights or defend America from “mean tweets.” Soldiers and service members are serious people, not cartoon soldiers without a backbone who talk about Pride Parades and their precious feelings. 

Forget about claims of Russian propaganda and all of it. Cruz was simply making a very basic and good point that we need to stop allowing left-wing lunatics to run the messaging in our military.
