Ted Cruz was attacked today by a New York Times editorial board member for quoting Frederick Douglass in his response to Kaepernick:
Frederick Douglass is an American hero, and his name has no business in your mouth. https://t.co/Ghoqb75gJF

Good grief, liberals are just so angry.
This is absurd for a number of reasons, but primarily because Frederick Douglass was a Republican, just like Cruz!
Also Cruz was really quite diplomatic with Kaepernick, adding only essential context so people would know Kaepernick was taking the quote way out of context. He wasn’t trying to score easy points with a rhetorical slam of some kind. He actually added to the conversation in a meaningful way.
Ted Cruz responded Gay a few minutes ago, exposing her liberal hackery:
Let’s see. You’re on the editorial board of the NYT. You respond to any view you don’t like, not with facts or reason, but w/ ad hominem attack. And you seem dismayed that I linked to Douglass’s entire speech, so readers can judge for themselves. You represent your employer well. https://t.co/c8168yiCgY

I’m sure the New York Times must be proud.
