While speaking at the Faith, Family and Freedom forum in Austin, TX over the weekend, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) addressed “the rage” that he says has “consumed” the left and how conservatives should handle it moving forward.
To sum it all up, Cruz thinks the following three things are the best approach to deal with the left’s rage is: “Lighten up”, “have some fun” and “smile”.
In reference to the Democrat party, Cruz was quoted as saying, “The left right now, they’re so consumed with rage.”
“They hate the president. It is all-consuming, it’s all they can see. As conservatives, let’s not respond to that. Like, just lighten up. Just have some fun,” Cruz said according to Houston Chronicle.
As an example of what he means by “have some fun,” Cruz reportedly referred to a response he had to a viral meme of himself with an American flag in the background and captioned: “This man ate my son.”
As reported by Houston Chronicle, Cruz said, “I retweeted it and said ‘He was delicious.’ When one party is going nuts, we gotta respond with joy, we gotta respond with smiles.” See Below
