Twitter Blue Check Leftist is Shocked When His Side Doesn’t Show Compassion After Ted Cruz ‘Family Matter’

Twitter Blue Check Leftist is Shocked When His Side Doesn’t Show Compassion After Ted Cruz ‘Family Matter’

“I’m sorry that this simple statement of decency [to leave Ted Cruz alone] was so controversial for some. I don’t use the day of someone’s death as an occasion to trash them, nor do I use the day of a serious family issue.” – Prolific Twitterer/CNN commentator Ron Filipkowski

On Tuesday night, Houston-based media outlets reported that police had been called to the Texas home of Sen. Ted Cruz over an alleged incident of attempted self-harm involving a 14-year-old. The teenager was reportedly taken to the hospital:

Houston police and fire department personnel responded to the Houston home of Sen. Ted Cruz on Tuesday night.

HPD told Eyewitness News that officers responded to reports of a 14-year-old with self-inflicted stab wounds on the arms in the upscale neighborhood of River Oaks. Police were in the front yard of Cruz’s home when ABC13 arrived.

While law enforcement didn’t provide any details beyond that, including whether any member of the Cruz family was involved, a statement released later by a spokesman for Cruz indicated that it was indeed a “family matter” involving one of Cruz’s daughters and that thankfully she was “okay”:

“This is a family matter and thankfully their daughter is okay,” a representative said in a statement. “There were no serious injuries. The family requests the media respect their daughter’s privacy at this time.”

While most of the Twitter reactions I saw from prominent leftists to the news expressed support for Cruz’s daughter, the sentiment was not the same when it came to the suggestion that people ease up on Cruz on the non-stop attacks he faces every day.

Prolific Twitterer/CNN commentator Ron Filipkowski, a self-described “national social media influencer” and avowed hater of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, found out the hard way what a cesspool of stupid Twitter can be when he asked his followers to give Cruz “a break” after he’d read the reports of what allegedly happened:

Though reactions were mixed, it got ugly quickly:

In response, Filipkowski expressed disappointment that there wasn’t universal agreement with his original sentiment:

Separately, woke radio host/gamer Liana Kerzner thought quite differently, making an unfounded claim about Cruz’s daughter and a grotesque comparison to Hunter Biden in the process:

Hmmm. Methinks the two issues aren’t the same, but you do you, Ms. Kerzner. Because clicks and stuff.

Wait, what? Cruz’s daughter is bisexual? Where did that come from and Cruz is not “homophobic”. I’m not aware he has ever said he is afraid of gay people.

    Kids at that age are heavily influenced by peers and teachers. It’s not outside the realm of possibility with Senator Cruz’s busy career that he missed something, sadly. I hope and pray that the family comes together over this and that the kid gets the help she needs to be normal.

      Maybe but cutting was a social contagion much like the gender dysphoria sweeping kids now. I’d thought it had died out for the most part. Kids are troubled and young girls especially now as they are getting so many mixed messages from adults and teachers.

Once they start cutting they are pretty sick puppies I’m afraid.

    It is the same mob mindset that propels pantifa; losers reinforcing each other in their delusions.

    I just love the comments like “I have no clue what life is like in the Cruz household, but Ted has shown time and again that his highest priority in life is his own political ambition. It would make sense that it neglected his family.”

    Maybe he should have used the Joe Biden example. Hunter speaks for himself (nude photos and all) and Biden’s idea of “family” is telling Ashley not to use his towel after they showered.

    But Twitter/Fakebook/Google/the WH/FIB et al. suppressed that, so, of course, it wasn’t true.

Because comparing a 14-year-old troubled teen is TOTALLY the same as holding accountable Biden’s crack-smoking, T&A chasing, degenerate, perverted, corrupt, venal, vile, avaricious ADULT son.

It’s easy to make assumptions behind her reasoning. Here, I’ll give it a try:

Bigoted Left wing teachers and bullies at school have made her life a nightmare with the express intention of harming her in the hope that Cruz will pull away from public life to protect her.

Honestly, that isn’t unlikely at all so it’s entirely possible that the bad guys are effectively those that are still attacking Cruz (by proxy).

The only reasonable thing to do is give her and her family space to deal with it. The continued attacks on Cruz over it, especially if he wasn’t responsible for what happened, will not help her mental state.

Keep in mind that to Leftists, compassion is institutional and changeable according to political needs, as opposed to human beings who can empathize with other human beings..

Ah, the ever classy, ever tolerant left… showing us how to be virtuous, enlightened people just like them. I am eternally grateful that they stoop to pick us up and elevate us.


When people provide their own justification for you to put them up against the wall, is not that what is best in life, Conan?

Well, of course they — Astonished Ron’s Tweeps — are. A hit of Hateraid is as good as Righteous Juice, and together they make a fine cocktail. And having broken psychology and no standards, there is nothing these late-stage addicts won’t do to get more.

One wonders if the clue will sink in.

Reality is that large numbers on both sides can be nasty and that nastiness is growing.

I knew as soon as I heard about it that leftists would be crowing all about it.

But I also know that people on the right would do the same if Cruz was a Democrat.

    Its true: 99% of Liberals spew vicious HATE when something like this happens to a Conservative, and almost zero other liberals call them out on it. The spewing of HATE is considered “virtue signaling” to fellow libs.

    Meanwhile, maybe 1% of Conservatives do the same to Liberals, and whenever it happens there’s a pig-pile of Conservatives shouting them down, telling them not to behave like Liberals.

    So, yeah, totally the same thing. Like, almost exactly.

    I know you are wrong because I have covered deaths of both sides and it isn’t even close. When mean things are said they are about the person’s own actions and not of their family. When Rush Limbaugh died the left went wild with hateful and scurrilous comments. I know of no leftists who have died who were treated in this way.

The only thing shocking here is that there’s actually a liberal remaining in this country that possesses some common decency.

Ron Filipkowski, is giving sage advice. There is a time and place for criticism, but it’s is not when someone is in the middle of a crisis situation. The left for the most part are the worst offenders. The old rule silence is golden has been lost to the left. They’ll demand respect when it’s one of their own, but continually fail when it comes to someone not of their persuasion.

What a bunch of assholes.
