“If you go to the 1940s, Nazi Germany,” Cruz said. “Look, we saw in Britain, Neville Chamberlain, who told the British people, ‘Accept the Nazis. Yes, they’ll dominate the continent of Europe but that’s not our problem. Let’s appease them. Why? Because it can’t be done. We can’t possibly stand against them.'”
“And in America there were voices that listened to that,” continued Cruz. “I suspect those same pundits who say it can’t be done, if it had been in the 1940s we would have been listening to them. Then they would have made television. They would have gotten beyond carrier pigeons and beyond letters and they would have been on tv and they would have been saying, ‘You cannot defeat the Germans.'”
Cruz is fast turning into a train wreck, but we suspect that his actions are politically calculated ones. There are many people out there who are either too naive, stupid, or just aren’t paying close enough attention to the political landscape who believe that Obamacare has a decent chance of being defunded when the reality is that it has a snowball’s chance in hell of happening. But at least he’ll be able to tell his constituents how hard he fought against Obamacare, and doing things like comparing Obamacare defunding skeptics to Nazi appeasers is red meat for those folks.
