Ted Cruz’s Father: Send Obama Back To Kenya

Last year, Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, said he wanted to send President Barack Obama back to Kenya in a speech during a Tea Party gathering. Videos have surfaced showing Rafael Cruz making the controversial comment.

Cruz Sr. also called the United States a Christian nation according to Mother Jones, a politically left-wing American magazine.

Rafael Cruz can be seen in the video, speaking about the need to restore the conservative majority to the Senate in an attempt to keep liberal nominees out of the Supreme Court.

“If we do not take this country back in this election, there’s a very strong possibility that this country will be destroyed by Barack Obama in the next four years,” Cruz Sr. said.

Among many tea party activists and social conservatives, Ted Cruz and his father has become heroes.

Rafael Cruz became an immigrant in the United States after leaving Cuba in 1957. Not knowing a word of English, he put himself through college working as a busboy. He eventually raised a family in the United States.

When asked about the controversial comments by Cruz Sr., Ted Cruz’s office pointed to a statement that the Communications Director, Sean Rushton, gave to Mother Jones. The statement by Rushton said, “The selective quotes, taken out of context, mischaracterize the substance of Pastor Cruz’s message.” They added, “Pastor Cruz does not speak for the senator.”

    Put that MF back on a raft to Cuba. Our President was born here not Kenya. He got his education here and has reapped the benefits of America. Let him go tell Castro how to run his country. Castro would probably kick his ASS and then try to unload him and his son on us again. How dare he talk that crap about our President on American soil. He should feel honored to be on American soil. And how does he and his son get away with it. You should be

      I think we should be asking for Ted’s birth certificate. How do we know he wasnt born in Cuba? I say we should start a petition to repeal the 27th amendment. Ted and all the senators and congressmen lose their protected paychecks, and i think maybe they wont be so quick to shut our government down!

    Doesn’t this site screen applicants for reporters’ jobs? This is the second consecutive article I’ve read on this site that contains grammatical errors.

    “…he put himself through college working as a busboy. Eventually raising a family in the United States.” << Hello, incomplete sentence, no subject.

    "When asked about the controversial comments by Cruz Sr., Ted Cruz’s office pointed to a statement that the Communications Director, Sean Rushton gave to Mother Jones." I think the part past the last comma is supposed to be a relative clause but it reads really awkward. How's this: "When asked about Cruz Sr.'s controversial comments, Ted Cruz’s office pointed to a statement which Sean Rushton, Communications Director, had previously given to Mother Jones."

    Better? If so, hire me.

    I don’t believe a person born in Cuba has the right to be criticizing the President who has proven his birth when Cruz was not born in this country period! He has not earned the right to do so! In doing so it really makes me desire to check his sons birth place more so than I would have ever wanted to check Obama’s!
