Ted Cruz Coloring Book Compares Obamacare to World Wars
Ted Cruz is coming out with a coloring book that is sure to infuriate plenty of people with its portrayal of Barack Obama. The Republican politician from Texas is teaming up with controversial Missouri publisher Really Big Coloring Books for a children’s book which is hardly age-appropriate. The coloring book states that Obama has a “consistent disregard” for constitutional rights and that the Affordable Care Act is “worse than any war.”
Of course, this may be unsurprising given Cruz’s infamous 21-hour rant on the Affordable Care Act. Really Big Coloring Books is describing their new project as “a non-partisan, fact-driven view of how Texas Sen. Rafael Edward ‘Ted’ Cruz became a U.S. senator and details, through his quotes and public information, his ideas for what he believes will help America grow.” Perhaps unsurprisingly, religion also plays a central role in the coloring book; kids can color in the Ten Commandments on a page devoted to the U.S. national motto, “In God We Trust.”
The company has produced plenty of other coloring books that are inappropriate for kids, including one about Occupy Wall Street. But it’s most offensive book was released in 2011 and titled We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids’ Book of Freedom, which was accused by many of being Islamophobic.
However, the coloring book creators stand by their work. “US citizens denounce this product; our company aspires to be accurate in description even when upopular [sic] and this book generated hate mail,” wrote the company on their website. Surprisingly, the Occupy book sold well in China, France, Eastern Europe and some middle eastern countries; in total outselling the US audience.”
