Rafael Cruz, the father of Tea Party-backed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), told a conservative media watchdog this week that it was doing what Jesus wanted by fighting the "liberal media."
In an interview with Media Research Center that was broadcast on Wednesday, MRC Latino Director Ken Oliver-Méndez asked Cruz if the organization was fulfilling its mission of holding the media accountable.
"You are doing something that is absolutely necessary in this country," Cruz explained. "When we have so much of the liberal media, that they have ceased to be broadcasters, they have ceased to be, really, journalists, and they have become mouthpieces for the administration."
"They have, apparently, no concern for the truth. All they want to do is promote the talking points of the administration. So, you are standing in the gap."
Cruz added: "You know, Jesus said, 'You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.' And I think what you are doing is trying to bring that truth so people can be free when they embrace the truth."
Rafael Cruz, the father of tea party-backed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), has warned Americans that equal rights for LGBT people and the theory of evolution are essentially communist lies that are being used by the American government to destroy the family and control the population.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) says that comprehensive immigration reform is "incredibly unfair to those who follow the rules," even though his father admits that he was forced to use bribes to immigrate from Cuba.
