Wesley Hunt And Ted Cruz Discuss Democrats’ Bigotry Of Low Expectations: ‘It’s To Create Victims’ | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Wesley Hunt (R-TX) said during a discussion this week that the political Left uses bigotry of low expectations to create victim groups.

    The two Texas Republicans made the remarks during an episode of "Verdict," a podcast co-hosted by Cruz and Ben Ferguson.

    "You're a Cuban American, and I am a black man," Hunt said. "And what's really funny about this is why the Left would absolutely pontificate about how we cannot exist. Here we are sitting here in unison with same, the same conservative values and so different backgrounds from different parts of the Earth."

    "My great-great-grandfather was a slave," he said. "And here we are having this conversation about conservative values and nobody cares about what we look like. This is the argument that the Left cannot deal with because it does not fit their narrative."

    Cruz said that it was important for people to understand the histories of both political parties because it's what "the media and the Democrats use to scare minority voters."

    "The Democrat policy agenda is absolutely horrific," Cruz said. "If you sat down and said, let's design a policy agenda to devastate the African American community and the Hispanic community, you could not come up with anything more effective than the Democrat agenda."

    Cruz highlighted how Democrats' policies create crime before noting how their policies have hurt black families.

    "You look at the Left-wing assault on the family," Cruz said. "Go back to the black family in the 1950s in the 1960s where you had strong two-parent households ... Look, the Great Society, the Left-wing policies that said, 'We're gonna give you welfare payments, we're going to disincentivize marriage and divide the home.'"

    "And they trapped generations of low-income Hispanics and African Americans in dependency," Cruz added. "And the Democrat agenda has trapped generations in poverty and dependency where you have 1, 2, 3, 4 generations on welfare and unable to get off of it, unable to get the dignity of a job, and then throw on top of that failed schools."

    Hunt said that the Democrat was designed to "create victims."

    "So imagine if my parents raised me, then they told me, 'You know what? This world is so much against you in America is so bad that you can't even get an ID. Rely on me and I will give you a check,'" he said. "Imagine if my parents told me that every single day. I certainly wouldn't be a United States Congressman. And that's what I mean by the soft bigotry of low expectations. And that's how they keep people voting for them by promising the very bare minimum."


Considering the renewed and unequalled dishonesty in elected politicians, at all levels of governing, and their associative nefarious bureaucrats doing their corrupt bidding: What is your opinion of YOUR government, and what do you intend to do about it?
  Today's overall government is just fine, and I will continue to vote for politicians that make promises to suit my individual needs.
  Today's overall government is poor, but I will continue to endeavor to learn what is true from the the most honest of media, and pick those representatives that best represent what is good and decent.
  I spend quite a bit of time on Eastern NC NOW; so ... I am having a far easier time separating the proverbial "wheat from the chaff" in finding honorable citizens to support.
