AOC Goes Down In Flames After Picking Another Fight With GOP Senator

Sen. Ted Cruz (RTexas) called out the NAACPs recenttravel advisory singling out the Republican Governor of Florida, calling itbizarre andutterly dishonest.

Expressing his outrage at thepartisan advisory that was based on false claims about the governors policies toward the black community, Cruz noted on Twitter thatIn the 1950s & 1960s, the NAACP did extraordinary good helping lead the civil rights movement. Today, Dr. King would be ashamed of how profoundly theyve lost their way.

Unsurprisingly, many on the left took offense and began to criticize the senator, including Rep. Alexandria OcasioCortez (DNY), who argued that the NAACP was within its rights to issue their advisory and that Cruz would have beenfirst in line to filibuster the Civil Rights Act.

Cruz did not back away from his criticism however, citing thatThat shameful filibuster was led by Democratsyour party. He then went on to point out the long history of the Democratic partys racism, noting thatthe Dem party founded the KKK andwrote Jim Crow laws, while also mentioning their filibuster of the Civil Rights Act and push to abolish police. He also highlighted the Trump administrations role in reducing African American unemployment to its lowest ever and poverty levels to its lowest ever since he took office.

Meanwhile, many are frustrated at the idea that Cruzs comments have been spun asantiblack, leading to an ongoing narrative that the Republican party is racist, especially considering the very real evidence that Republican and Democratic parties switched sides in terms of civil rights support over the years.

As Cruz noted, the Republican party wasfounded to oppose slavery and led bythe first Republican President Abraham Lincoln,who won the Civil War and ended slavery.

Moreover, the southern Democrat shift in support of their civil rights policies didnt occur until the late 1980s, early 1990s, and some even argue that it had more to do with economics, national security, and Democrats race to the far left than withracism.

Ultimately, Senator Cruzs comments still ring true, though he may not have phrased them in the most diplomatic of terms: The NAACP haslost its way and has become overly partisan, basing itsadvisory off of false allegations and has essentially used black people as pawns for their political agenda. And, the Republican party is not to blame for this.
