The Right Scoop: Ted Cruz PUMMELS New York Times writer who attacked him for quoting Frederick DouglassNews|7.5.19
Ted Cruz was attacked today by a New York Times editorial board member for quoting Frederick Douglass in his response to Kaepernick.
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.
