Here’s What Ted Cruz Wrote When Asked to Sign the Communist Manifesto

Here’s What Ted Cruz Wrote When Asked to Sign the Communist Manifesto


One of the best parts of today’s news cycle (thus far)…

A kid asks Ted Cruz to sign his copy of the Communist Manifesto as a joke and here’s what Cruz wrote:

Well played, good sir.

Sugar-coating it a bit, isn’t he?

You “suffer” when your class in English lit spends an entire term on Ulysses.

With the Manifesto, you don’t so much suffer as die. Usually of starvation. By the millions. Maybe tens of millions. And if you don’t die of starvation, then load poisoning.

    “Load” poisoning? Whazzat? “Lead” poisoning makes more sense.

    gotta rain on our parade, eh $&@#face?

    The anti-Cruz crowd knows no bounds.
    What a stupid criticism from ts.
    Dying is within “suffering.”
    I suppose if Cruz has used the word “dying,” ts would have criticized Cruz for not thinking about all of those who suffered but did not die, including the families of all those who died.
    ts does not suggest the better inscription he would have spontaneously written.

      Anything that Trump might have written — anything at all — would be applauded by Trumpbots as exceedingly brilliant and wise, because Trump.

      The real “Trump effect” has been to make millions of people abandon whatever rational judgment they may have possessed and whatever principles they may have espoused, because falling in line behind their demigod matters more than principle.

      Gender-neutral restrooms? Of course! Trump is for it, so how can we be against it?

      Middle-aged people mimicking the silly cultlike behavior we laughed about when it focused on Obama? It’s wonderful! It proves that Trump is greater than great!

    The Donald probably would have just signed his name and moved on.

    “With the Manifesto, you don’t so much suffer as die. ”

    People have died for every style of government on the planet. However the suffering that people have felt under communism is not comparable. That is why his inscription was on point. When people grow up they realize even people they don’t like hit home runs. Sad that you can’t see that.

Ted Cruz is the most marvellous and perfect conservative that this country has ever seen. Everything that he does is rooted his deep understanding of the constitution and respect for this glorious nation of patriots. I would bet that even Ayn Rand would be proud to wear the perfumey aroma extracted from his faeces. God bless Ted Cruz and may one day he be anointed as president of the united states of america!

Cruz/Fiorina 2016!!

Ted Cruz sure is a funny guy.

His autograph will be worth a lot of money someday.

I hope that kid holds on to that book.

    In today’s five-milliseconds-of-fame world, he should put it on eBay right now. Even if Ted Cruz goes on to be the greatest president in our history, this particular autograph will never be worth more than it is right now with this story going viral.

Imagine a piece of garbage like Squeaker Boehner mentioning Ted Cruz by name without first calling him ‘Sire?’

Perfect, crystalline, high-class response from Cruz. No wonder this dumb country’s electorate doesn’t want him.

Do you have to use the creepiest picture of Ted Cruz that you can find to go with the “story”?

Sometimes the blog entries at LI seem written by 14 year olds.

Trooper York | April 28, 2016 at 9:26 pm

That’s not fair. How can you possibly measure which is the “creepiest” photo of Ted Cruz?

    Written with all the class demonstrated by Trump and his followers.

    Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined a group of sycophants so enamoured with a cult of personality than the imbecilic Obots of 2008 with Obama. Then the Trump Chumps came along.

Creepy is how my 8 year old daughter describes people. A 14 year old would have used a better descriptor.

The only redeeming quality about vulgar Trump supporters: they provide page views and clicks for this site so it can continue to promote @TedCruz and true conservatism.

Oh, and they also provide a glaring contrast between their subhuman behavior and the rest of the world.

I support Ted Cruz. But looking at his signature in the book, I would say he needs to work on signing his last name. “Ted [partially-finished figure-8]” doesn’t cut it.
