Ted Cruz on Friday said he would that he would vote for Donald Trump for president.
“After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump,” he wrote in a Facebook post.
Cruz said he endorsed both because of his primary pledge to support the party nominee, as well as his concerns about Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
“Last year, I promised to support the Republican nominee. And I intend to keep my word,” Cruz said. “Second, even though I have had areas of significant disagreement with our nominee, by any measure Hillary Clinton is wholly unacceptable — that’s why I have always been #NeverHillary.”
The announcement follows months of waiting for Cruz’s stance on Trump, as well as the political ramifications of an endorsement following the Texas senator’s bitter, personal primary race against Trump.
“If he announces he endorses, it destroys his political brand,” said someone who had worked for Cruz’s campaign.
Before, when they thought Trump was going to lose, conservatives thought the best plan of action was to boldly oppose Trump so it would benefit them as the heir apparent to the “conservative” cause. Now they think he can win, so they are all reversing thrusters to full because they think it will benefit them (check out the divinely inspired backtracking from Trump’s catholic liasion). There are two conservative principles. One is cleaks law. Cleek’s Law:
Today’s conservatism is the opposite of what liberals want today, updated daily.
It’s always about what’s best (or what they think is best) for them at this very moment. Always. It’s why they embraced the bugfuck crazies in the tea party movement. It’s why they all saw starburts with Sarah Palin and then eight years later boldly disassociated themselves from her. It’s why they embraced Joe the not actually a plumber and currently a union member.
The second conservative principle is they hate you:
I was a winger for years, and we can discuss that particular psychosis at a later date, but what I can explain to you right now is that they fucking hate you.
They just do.
They hate you because you respect gay people as normal human beings.
They hate you because you respect African-Americans as normal human beings.
They hate you because you respect Asians, Latinos, and everyone else who isn’t a straight white male.
They hate you because you respect a woman’s right to choose.
They hate you because you respect the right of people to be with who they love.
They hate you because you respect the right of anyone to adopt a child.
They hate you because you respect international law.
They hate you because you believe in economic and tax fairness.
They hate you because you respect the right of anyone to worship any way they want.
They hate you because you respect scientists and their collective knowledge.
They hate you because you respect teachers and the work they do educating Americans.
They hate you because you respect the human dignity of every American.
They hate you because you respect the rights of people over corporations.
They hate you because you respect nature and think we have a duty to take care of the environment.
They hate you because you respect your right to vote, and they don’t think you deserve it.
They hate you because you respect the constitution and the rule of law.
They hate you because you respect laws against torture.
In short, they hate you. Period.
They masquerade their bullshit in the words of Jesus and the all-knowing free market, but it is transparent what motivates them. Not love for their fellow man, not love for their fellow citizen, not love for country- what motivates them is hate for the other.
They fucking hate you. They want you, and everyone who speaks for you, and every institution that represents your values, whether it be Planned Parenthood or food banks or ACORN- you name it. They want it destroyed.
So when slimy pseudo human Ted Cruz is running in four years against Hillary, and the usual clowns start fapping about him being a true conservative and not like the Trump aberration, remember this.
