In his astounding address to voters, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) recently spoke about controversial COVID-19 conspirator Joe Rogan, who would become the “president” of Texas if the state leaves the union.
“I’m not there yet,” Cruise told an audience last month at Texas A&M University about the secession of Texas from the United States, commonly known as “Texit”.
But “if there comes a point where it’s hopeless, then I think we’ll take NASA, we’ll take the military, we’ll take oil,” he said to loud applause.
When asked if he would also take Rogan, the Texan, Cruz replied: “Joe Rogan, he could be the president of Texas!”
When one of the viewers asked Cruz about the possibility of separating, he said that he “understood this opinion.” But he added that he was not yet ready for this.
“I’m not ready to give up America. I love this country, ”he said, again to applause.
First, Cruz insisted, Texas has a “responsibility” to the nation because “right now it is an amazing force that keeps America from falling off the cliff, keeping America based on the values that built this country.”
But he is ready to change his mind.
“Look, if the Democrats put an end to the pirate … if they call the Supreme Court, if they make DC a state, if they federalize elections and massively expand voter fraud,” which doesn’t exist, “it could be hopeless,” Cruz said. “We’re not there yet.”
But if it does become “hopeless,” then the state should take over NASA, the army and the oil, he added.
As for a possible future “president” of Texas, at least the right-wing skeptic on the vaccine and Rogan mask looks healthy after contracting COVID-19 earlier this year. The podcaster earlier last month, without the slightest evidence in its popular podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, insisted that President Joe Biden’s booster shot, which was filmed and televised, was magically rigged.
In May, Rogan admitted that he was a “damn jerk” and “not a respected source of information” after falsely claiming that young and healthy people do not need vaccinations. Hopefully he knows more about running a nation state.
Cruise’s performance was recorded for his Verdict podcast series. It is part of a series of controversial Verdict and Others talks funded by the conservative Young America’s Foundation, of which right-wing Scott Walker, former Governor of Wisconsin, is president. Jeff Sessions, Donald Trump’s former attorney general and Trump’s extremist immigrant adviser Stephen Miller are alumni of the foundation.
Cruise was scheduled to speak last month at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, but the event was moved off-campus as organizers refused to comply with the university’s policy of requiring masks, WKOW-TV reported.
