Ted Cruz Advisor Slams Bono As Tool Of Islamic Extremists

In the process, he unmasked himself as a white supremacist and not just an Islamophobe.
Ted Cruz Advisor Slams Bono As Tool Of Islamic Extremists

Frank Gaffney is pissed at Bono for daring to speak for the refugees who are suffering as a consequence of the wars in that region.

Anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist and Ted Cruz national security adviser Frank Gaffney is none too pleased that the musician Bono urged the U.S. Senate to provide more aid to the Middle East to help fight terrorism and the refugee crisis.

Gaffney told “Breitbart News Daily” that Bono has encouraged “Europe to be repopulated by non-Europeans” who are bent on destroying freedom, adding that Bono is “a man of the left and a lot of them are useful idiots in the service, whether they know it or not, of Islamists and other enemies of freedom.

I think those statements take him right out of the realm of Islamophobia and into outright white supremacy, don't you?

Listen if you dare:

It doesn't matter whether the candidate is Donald Trump or Ted Cruz. They're not that different from one another when it comes to their hatred of brown people, or their desire to eradicate anyone of the Muslim faith. It's just that Donald Trump is more forthright about how he says it.
