According to Rafael Cruz, father of Tea Party-strongarm Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), the common term for homosexuals, “gay,” it actually a piece of mass manipulating political jargon used to push a liberal agenda.

Daddy Cruz made this claim at a Grassroots America We The People meeting that “liberals has twisted the meanings of words as part of their politically correct agenda.”

“Gay means happy,” said Cruz. “It’s just trying to dilute it so it becomes socially acceptable, and if you say anything about homosexual marriage or anything, ‘Oh, you’re intolerant.’”

Cruz railed against liberals for coining abortion terms “pro-life” and “pro-choice,” when Cruz himself offered up replacing the term “pro-choice” with “pro-death” or “pro-murder.”

In June, Cruz took on the subjects of evolution, LGBT rights, and communism. He asserted that LGBT rights and evolution are rooted in communism and that the government used these notions as instruments to undermine American family values and control the masses.

“You know, communism or socialism, whatever you want to call it, what is happening in this country is not different than what happened in Cuba,” said Cruz. “It is about government control of your lives. You got to realize how Marxist, how socialism works. When you hear all these things about homosexual marriage, this has nothing to do with homosexual rights.”

He then claimed himself a scientist and said evolution isn’t scientific. He then spoke of Karl Marx and Charles Darwin, saying that such theories and ideologies help the government assert itself as a “god.”

The only thing separating Rafael Cruz from other tin-foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists is the tin-foil hat.
