Ted Cruz's New Coloring Book Aims To Indoctrinate Children
Ted Cruz Children's Coloring Book
December 9, 2013

I don't think it's a stretch to paint Senator Ted Cruz as an egomaniac, especially after he led the charge to shut down the government against the wishes of his own party, but now he's topped himself as an all time right wing propagandist by releasing a crazy non-partisan children's coloring book. (Whenever you see the word non -partisan next to ted Cruz' name, you know something is very wrong there.) The kind of book that can be used at clubs, hang outs, schools, sleep overs, listening to the good old Prussian Blue songs or as a companion at your child's next Dominionist meeting. As you take a stroll through the book you'll notice that the book is more about making Ted Cruz out to be the second coming of Jesus than anything else.

Are you a new parent terrified that the liberal media will turn your child into an Obama supporter? Or do you just need something to entertain your kids during those long drives to Tea Party rallies? If so, then a brand new coloring book is just the thing for your family! The “Ted Cruz to the Future™ – Comic Coloring Activity Book” is a “non-partisan, fact-driven view of how Texas Sen. Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz became a U.S. senator and details, through his quotes and public information his ideas for what he believes will help America grow,” according to its publisher Really Big Coloring Books.Some of the “non-partisan, fact-driven” things children will learn from the new book are:

  • Ted Cruz Is A Man Of Great Virility And Stamina: Many “career establishment politicians are far too out of shape, old or overweight to even perform such a magnificent feat” as standing on the Senate floor and talking for over 21 hours. But not Ted Cruz!
  • Ted Cruz Can See The Future: Cruz spoke with “clairvoyant precision” about the “quickly approaching Obama Care disaster.
  • Cruz Is The Constitution’s Guardian: Ted Cruz is a “passionate fighter for limited government, economic growth, and the Constitution.
  • America Is A Christian Nation: American history is “replete with official references to the value and invocation of Divine guidance, including official Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, House and Senate chaplains, the national motto ‘In God We Trust,” the Pledge of Allegiance, [and] religious paintings in the National Gallery.” So hands off those government-sponsored Ten Commandments monuments!
  • Providing Health Care To People Who Can’t Afford It Is Worse Than War: Cruz’s failed stand against the Affordable Care Act “was so important because millions of citizens believe Obama Care is worse than any war. At least American soldiers have weapons with which to defend themselves.”

Digby says:

I think the best part is the Tea Plant, especially the "diversity" and "inclusion" branches.

By the way, if you take a stroll through the book then you'll see that the graphics are so bad that I doubt even a conservative kid would enjoy using it as a coloring book or anything else unless they are forced to by their parents. If you've read up on Cruz' wacky father then you know he indoctrinated Ted into the lower depths of right wing extremism.
