Ted Cruz and Ted Kaczynski—two of a kind

Ted Cruz, real name Rafael Edward Cruz, is a Harvard educated lawyer, former Texas Solicitor General, who was elected to the U. S. Senate from Texas last November. Some say that he has a very high IQ, so much so that his head has swollen to twice its normal size since he went to Washington. Everywhere you look these days there is Ted Cruz. Sarah Palin even loves “Ted” as she calls him. Why on earth would a Harvard educated, supposedly brilliant man want any kind of praise from the likes of Sarah Palin? Well, we know all about the Tea Party folks but Ted Cruz also has a strange likeness to another “Ted,” namely Ted Kaczynski.

Remember Ted Kaczynski? His full name was Theodore John “Ted” Kaczynski. He was by all accounts a genius, a mathematician at that. Kaczynski was born and raised in Chicago. He was a child prodity, and was so brilliant he was accepted at Harvard at age 16. He got a PhD in math from the University of Michigan, and then became an assistant professor at the University of California at Berkeley. But something happened to all of Ted Kaczynksi’s brilliance. He became the Unibomber. Yes, this brilliant mathematician, Harvard education, high IQ, golden boy, lost his way, moved to the hills of Montana, lived like a hermit and began making bombs and sending them to people all over the country. From 1978 to 1995, Kaczynski sent 16 bombs to targets including universities and airlines, killing three people and injuring 23. Kaczynski sent a letter to The New York Times on April 24, 1995 and promised “to desist from terrorism” if the Times or the Washington Post published his manifesto, Industrial Society and Its Future (also called the “Unabomber Manifesto”), in which he argued that his bombings were extreme but “necessary to attract attention to the erosion of human freedom” necessitated by modern technologies requiring large-scale organization. Kaczynski went to the top of the FBI’s Most Wanted list. FBI officers arrested Theodore Kaczynski on April 3, 1996 at his remote cabin outside Lincoln, Montana, where he was found in an unkempt state. Combing his cabin, the investigators found a wealth of bomb components, 40,000 handwritten journal pages that included bomb-making experiments,descriptions of the Unabomber crimes, and one live bomb, ready for mailing.

Ted Cruz is on the fast track to becoming another Ted Kaczysnki. Cruz, not unlike Kaczynski, is too smart for his own good. Cruz, not unlike Kaczynski, has his own “manifesto” for the country and he is willing to use his political platform to attract attention to what he also believes is the erosing of human freedom. This swollen-headed, ego maniac arrived in Washington and proceeded to try to flex his supposed intellectual superior over everyone with his smug, piercing, arrogance. Well Ted Kacynski was smug and arrogant as well. Instead of making real bombs, Cruz has proceeded to make and send political bombs all over the place. Everywhere you look there is Ted Cruz, looking smug and arrogant—acting as if his brain is the only one that can reason. Ted Cruz is currently on a one-man bombing spree all across America spouting off his own particular firebrand of far right wing demagoguery. He despises the president. I think he was watched that movie “The Liberation of LBJ Jones” over and over. I think at his core that Cruz has some type of “penis-envy” complex about that tall, handsome Barack Obama that really gets his goat. Obama has already done what Cruz will never do—become President of the United States, and so Cruz is out to destroy with Obama with pinpoint, missile precision. He is out to eviscerate the President every chance he gets. Sound like the unibomber.

After only a few months in office Ted Cruz has replaced Ted Kaczynski as the nation’s new “Unibomber.” Cruz wants to rule America with his own version of “rightness.” He treats the electorate the same way his daddy treats a congregation. Behind the pulpit he is “large and in charge.” After all, Cruz learned his fire brand of rhetoric from his preacher father. Cruz knows how to persuade the ill informed with his pretext at intellect. Hitler did the same thing—he was a master of fake, electrifying, speechifying intelligence that led Germany into complete ruination. Ted Cruz is doing the same thing—passing off his utter hate for the President as some type of political philosophy that apparently only he is smart enough to understand. Ted Cruz is getting the attention he wants and craves right now—just like Ted Kaczynski. Every time Kaczynski made a bomb and mailed it, killing and maiming others he felt proud and in charge. Every time Ted Cruz spouts off his phony “intellectual” prowess, he also feels proud and in charge. Two of a kind-Ted Kaczynski and Ted Cruz—tossing his hate-filled bombs all over the place. These two could pass for brothers. They even look alike.
