Rafael Cruz, the father and campaign surrogate of GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz, launched into yet another rant about the Supreme Court in an interview today on “Breitbart News Daily,” this time warning that an additional “liberal justice” on the high court will destroy all of society.
“One more justice like that,” the elder Cruz said of the four justices appointed by President Clinton and President Obama, “and we will lose our right to keep and bear arms. We will lose all of our religious freedom. We will see abortion on demand to the day of delivery. We will see the destruction of traditional marriage, and the family is the foundation of society — if the family is destroyed, society will be destroyed.”
Of course, the Supreme Court ruled last year in favor of marriage equality — which conservatives deride as “the destruction of traditional marriage” — and society has somehow managed to survive.
He went on to say that Donald Trump would appoint a liberal jurist and so “it would be disastrous if [he] became president,” alleging that Trump is a phony conservative who “lies constantly.”
“Trump is the biggest enigma we have,” he added. “We don’t know where he’d be on any issue.”
