Here’s why Ted Cruz lost me as a supporter

Here’s why Ted Cruz lost me as a supporter, by Angry White Dude. The critical moment was after the Chicago riot that halted the Trump rally. Cruz attacked Trump over the violence, but it

was the perfect occasion for Cruz to defend the First Amendment and Trump’s right to speak without leftist thugs using violence to halt him. …

Ted is wise enough to realize that if he were winning, he too would face leftist riots to silence him. He already has had anti-gun nut jobs rush his stage while speaking. This violence is not directed at Trump, nor his message. It is directed at anyone who says anything that leftist brutes oppose. This has become the new norm on university campuses …

Yep, that violent attack nudged the US election towards tribal identity politics, which cemented Trump’s place as the Republican standard bearer.
