Despicable: WaPo depicts Ted Cruz’s daughters as monkeys — Cruz responds

Cruz-childrenOn Tuesday, a scum-sucking, maggot-infested putrid piece of pale pig flesh cleverly disguised as a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist with the Washington Post, (with apologies to maggots and pigs everywhere) posted a cartoon depicting the two young daughters of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, as monkeys.

The disgusting cartoon was apparently in response to a parody ad in which Cruz read to his children.

That was all Ann Telnaes needed to attack his children.

Here’s her tweet — which was deleted about the time this post was published:


She wrote:


Just so you know, these are the two little children Telnaes depicted as monkeys:


The Post apparently came under heavy fire for the blatantly racist and despicable cartoon and pulled it with this explanation:

Editor’s note from Fred Hiatt: It’s generally been the policy of our editorial section to leave children out of it. I failed to look at this cartoon before it was published. I understand why Ann thought an exception to the policy was warranted in this case, but I do not agree.

According to the Post, Telnaes won a “Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning in 2001.”

The Post pulled her cartoon, but it still lives on Twitter.

Cruz responded to the cartoon with this:

Reaction to the disgusting post was swift and visceral:

It only matters is the target is a Democrat.  If it’s a Republican, all bets are off.

It’s beyond creepy.  It’s sick.


It’ll never happen.


We don’t need to imagine.

Again, that depends on the political party of the target.  Democrats are off-limits.  Republicans, especially conservatives, are fair game.

Incidents like this are the reason we refer to the so-called mainstream media as the “Democrat-media complex” and it’s also one reason why so many in the country literally hate the media.

It’s a good thing the Post yanked the cartoon, but it also needs to post a very public apology to Cruz, his children and all conservatives.
