No Class Cruz Jokes About Guns After Charleston: ‘Praise The Lord And Pass The Ammo’ (VIDEO)

Ted Cruz couldn’t care less about who he offends, if his words are shallow or hurtful, or if his insensitive remarks make people cringe. By the crass statements he made Saturday, he also doesn’t care about the victims of the shooting in Charleston or their families.

While the country mourns yet another senseless tragedy involving guns, Cruz took to the gun range to fire off a few rounds in front of the cameras, proving to the extremists he counts on for support that no amount of death with deter Ted Cruz from being an asshole. As people applauded him for being an ammosexual douche, pastors and priests from Seattle to Charleston prepared for difficult Sunday sermons of forgiveness and love.

Cruz, at a town hall meeting in Iowa Friday, didn’t mention the Charleston shootings at all. His remarks when questioned by reporters, however, were about as classless as a person can get, even for Ted Cruz:

“It’s sad to see the Democrats take a horrific crime and try to use it as an excuse, not to go after people with serious mental illness or people who are repeat felons or criminals, but instead try to use it as an excuse to take away Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.”

That’s the Tea Party favorite in a nutshell. In one fell swoop, Cruz manages to get every right-wing talking point to the press. He fails to mention the common sense legislation to keep guns from the mentally ill and repeat offenders he voted against after Newtown. It’s all just a ploy to take away your 2nd Amendment rights.

Cruz wouldn’t speak on the idea that the crime was racially motivated, opting instead to politicize that he thought the shooting was politicized:

“It appears to be racially driven from what it was reported this strange man said, and a racial hate crime is horrific, any hate crime is horrific. I don’t think we should be using this tragedy to try and divide people and to try and seek partisan advantage. I think we should be praying for those who lost loved ones in this horrific murder.”

“This strange man” was a racist, built on a conservative assembly line in a dark corner of the internet dedicated to seeing Ted Cruz elected president. No other candidate is “brave” enough to speak the “truth,” which is right-wing extremist for complete bullshit.

Cruz wasn’t done making an ass of himself. He decided that by Friday, enough time had passed and that jokes about guns were appropriate banter:

“You know the great thing about the state of Iowa is, I’m pretty sure you all define gun control the same way we do in Texas — hitting what you aim at.”

Good one, Ted. Dylann Roof reloaded five times to hit what he was aiming at. Cruz wasn’t finished there:

“My wife, Heidi, who is a petite, 5’2 California blonde, she was standing at the tripod unloading the full machine gun with a pink baseball cap that said ‘armed and fabulous.'”

Well as long as your wife is just as insensitive as you, all is right with the world.

And of course, right before firing off a bunch of rounds from a rather large assault weapon Saturday, (this is where right-wingers show up and try to give a lesson on the difference between a weapon and a rifle), Cruz said:

“There’s a famous saying, praise the Lord and pass the ammunition. There is a reason why the Second Amendment is right after the First.”

Because it’s less important and was intended to keep us armed and safe against yet another invasion by King George.

The United States is the most dangerous and reckless of all industrialized nations. Regardless of our standing politically or militarily in the world, the residents of other civilized nations love to point at us and laugh.
