“Your world is on fire!” Cruz wants terrified little girl to know apocalypse is here because...Obama

He's like an insane televangelist.



Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.) took an odd approach to riling up voters in a New Hampshire speech on Sunday — by shouting at a child. According to reports, at an event held by the Strafford County Republican Committee, Cruz attempted to convey the urgency of the American political situation:

“It’s now or never,” he said. “I don’t think we’ve reached the point of no return yet. But we’re close. We are close! And I believe if we go four or eight more years on this same path, we risk losing the greatest country in the history of the world.”

He continued: “And the Obama-Clinton foreign policy of leading from behind — the whole world is on fire.”

“The world is on fire?!” asked a little girl who was in the arms of her mother.

“The world is on fire,” he replied. “Yes! Your world is on fire!”


After a moment in which is bizarre fearmongering set in, he revised his statement. “But you know what?” he said. “Your mommy is here and everyone is here to make sure that the world you grow up in is even better.”

3. Cruz uses the vocal and acting ttechniques of the old-time tent evangelists.

I can hear it in his voice. Your world is on fire. Hell is a fiery furnace and you are going there. Be afraid. Be very afraid. Follow me. Give me money. Salvation is but a donation away.

Elmer Gantry here comes Ted Cruz.

Present a simple solution to everything, and a lot of people feel very warm and cozy and will do what you say.

5. Crazy tea party mom says daughter wasn't scared!

 

<snip>

“The world is on fire?” piped up 3-year-old Julie Trant, who was sitting with her mother.

The senator answered in the affirmative: “The world is on fire. Yes! Your world is on fire. But you know what? Your mommy’s here and everyone’s here to make sure that the world you grow up in is better.”

Cruz did not scare her daughter, her mom Michelle said in an interview with WRKO Radio in Boston.

“There was no tears,” Trant said, telling the show she told her daughter that ”Ted Cruz is the one that will put this fire out. And then she then looked at him as a hero.”
