Pro-Cruz Robocall Accuses Trump Of Being Pro-LGBT And “Tearing Down Judeo-Christian Values” [AUDIO]

South Carolina voters were robocalled last night with a message that plays excerpts of Donald Trump’s exchange with lesbian reporter Sue O’Connell and accuses him of “tearing down Christian values.” Listen below. Via Buzzfeed:

“I’m a lesbian,” O’Connell tells Trump. “We’ve had some great progress for the gay and lesbian community through politics, through all sorts of judicial actions and elected actions over the past 20 years. When President Trump is in office, can we look for more forward motion for equality for gays and lesbians?”

Trump responds, “Well, you can. And look, that’s your thing, and other people have their thing. We have to bring all people together.” At this point, the narrator’s voice, now taking on an incredulous tone, interjects: “Stop. What does she mean by ‘forward motion’? What’s he agreeing to?”

“It’s not about tolerance anymore,” the narrator continues. “It’s about mandatory celebration. It’s about forcing people to bake cakes and photograph gay weddings. Forcing clergy to officiate. It’s about transgender bathrooms in your child’s school. It’s about tearing down our Judeo-Christian values. It’s about tearing down our America.” The recording ends with an ominous sign-off from the narrator: “Ted Cruz for president — now, before it’s too late.”

The robocall was paid for by the Courageous Conservative Political Action Committee.

    oh…a race to see who can be more anti-gay. This should be interesting. Not a way to the future though…

    • JW Swift

      The future will have to drag some places, like South Carolina, kicking and screaming.

  • Prion

  • The Professor

    That call is utterly repulsive and more proof that eventually the hatred that is consuming the GOP will swallow them whole. Can’t happen soon enough. Fucking ridiculous.

    • Joe knows who I am.

      Well look, when it’s likely you’ve killed twenty or more people you do whatever you have to to get elected.

    • Chris Baker

      Hopefully this will be the last election when it’s really an issue. I hope people are realizing, now that SSM is legal, that “hey, this really doesn’t affect me at all, not one bit.”

      • clay

        You do know that know-nothings are not a recent development, right?

      • Reality.Bites

        I think once the nominees are chosen, and the Republicans have to try to appeal beyond the base, they will certainly put it as far on the back burner as they dare. Even four years ago, Romney was hardly eager to make it a big campaign issue. Come to think of it, neither was McCain.

        • Mark

          Maybe so – but something like 33 out of 50 states have some sort of anti-LGBT legislation up for discussion/votes/etc. So, the base is already stirred up and has been mind-fucked with the ‘issue’ that is antithesis of everything America. Look at Houston with the bathroom vote.

    • Mark

      Maybe so – but at what price? Even 4 yeas of Cruz in the WH means the closet or worse for us.

      • The Professor

        Not gonna happen.

  • Prion

  • bkmn

    So who is going to slip them some knives before their next cage match…er, debate?

      As near as I can tell there is no “kind of” about it.
      For years the GOP has encouraged the worst behavior of their base. They’ve flogged them forward with fear and cultivated an antipathy to reason and logic. They set the barn on fire, thinking they’d could manage the stampede, only to be trampled in the end.

      • Octoberfurst

        Spot on comment! For the past couple decades it has been nothing but fear, fear, fear coming from the GOP. Fear the Blacks! Fear the Hispanics! Fear the Muslims! Fear the gays! Fear the secularists! They’ve created a base of wild-eyed lunatics and now they can’t control them. Imagine that! So now we have a large segment of society that hates everyone who isn’t White, Christian and heterosexual. Plus they are heavily armed and itching to “cleanse” America. This isn’t going to be pretty.

        • Chucktech

          And the one-two punch is that we in the reality based, no-fear community don’t vote. The rubes who are consumed with fear and hate and superstition do.

          • Ninja0980

            Indeed, amazing many on our side don’t get that.

    Slightly OT (and the author seems to be a repug) but he breaks down the odds of tRump winning and the likelihood of a brokered (broken) convention.

    Love all the dump on the Trump cartoons, but just remember Cruz is not a better choice.

    • Joe knows who I am.

      That’s why we’re all voting Carson!

      • William

        I don’t think he’s eligible.

        • jerry

          I’m voting for Barrow…

          • jerry

            Yes, but I went with the gay man…

    • clay

      If Crus dumps on Turmp enough, dragging him into the white right, he’ll (whomever) have a harder time swinging back towards the center for the general election.

      • TrollopeReader

        i read that as “Turnip” …. apt, though !

    • Todd20036

      Neither is Rubio

    • Chucktech

      Oh, god, no. Trump, in fact, is the best they got. How sad that is for our country.

    • Strepsi

      Unbelievably, Cruz is actually WORSE.

  • Blake Jordan

    Is the economy in South Carolina doing well?
    Are they free from any actual problems?

    Why is homophobia a legitimate selling point for a presidential candidate?

    • David Walker

      Works for the preachers, and South Carolinians are truly religious. It’s not a “legitimate” selling point, but it gets the populace riled.

      • j.martindale

        truly bigoted, not religious.

        • David Walker

          Difference noted.

    • oikos

      Poverty hunger and all other problems have been eliminated there. Only teh gay remains.

      • Vista-Cruiser

        No, to Republicans, poverty and hunger are GOOD things, as long as they’re not the ones hungry and impoverished.

    • Steven Leahy

      Because like in much of this country, you have an ignorant, uneducated, insular population who have been religiously and culturally indoctrinated their whole lives to believe the only things that matter are the sacred right to bear arms and hate people you don’t like, understand, or even know. Hot button so-called “social” issues based on emotional fear mongering are effective at distracting one away from one’s real concerns, like being able to go to a doctor, afford prescriptions, or buy sufficient food for your family, or keep the lights and water on.

      • Joe knows who I am.

        Three words can correct that, Gentrify, gentrify, gentrify!

      • Chucktech

        Beautiful distillation of the problem.

      • Phillip in L.A.

        Wasn’t that a rhetorical question?

  • David Walker

    It’s fascinating how much power we have.

    • j.martindale

      I am going to have to have a sign made that says, “I am the great Satan.”

      • David Walker

        And on the other side, “Caution: I’m gay. Don’t piss me off.”

      • Phillip in L.A.

      • Doug105

        I miss it terribly.

        • Robincho

          Have you heard about the recent merger between the National Railroad Passenger Corporation and Grindr? The new entity will be known as AMTRIK™, and I suggest buying a couple of tickets. Who knows what might come up?.

      • Jimmie Z

        Do you share him?

        • Johnny Wyeknot

          The tunnel or the train?

          • GanymedeRenard

    Apparently Cruz and Carson had a secret meeting … in a Closet

    • clay

      cutting into Carson’s speaking time by 5 minutes–

      Don’t meet Crus– he’ll even fuck that up.

  • KQCA

    Okay, so that’s 2 points in Trump’s favor…if they’re true.

    • DaddyRay

      Cruz said it – of course it isn’t true

    • Friday

      Of course they aren’t. He just promised to undo marriage equality to those who wanted to hear it.

  • ceeenbee

    Sadly, the tone of this election has turned the same as the last few elections. The rethuglicans, unable or unwilling to come up with concrete answers to all of the problems facing the lower and middle class have fallen true to form and are attempting a race to the bottom for votes by seeing who can be the most intolerant to a group of people who want nothing but to live their lives as equals in the country they call home.

    • clay

      I see one difference: this time it’s the party’s leading candidates, not only one, and not on the fringe.

      • ceeenbee

        Same as last time. Willard swore that one of the first things he would do was push got a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. He went even further, saying that he would try and ban anything RESEMBLING opposite-sex marriage.

        The log cabin idiots felt justified in endorsing him anyway. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8e56c5aa0d86089fe33a23e3aa7460fc8faf5253805d4695afc373eedb762fd4.jpg

        • clay

          Yeah, but he didn’t claim Santorum was soft on us.

          • ceeenbee

            No, because they were equally as repulsive.

    • Chucktech

      And, all the while, screaming about how Obama has destroyed this country, our military, the economy, shown the world our weakness, and visited the plague of Obamacare on us. And no one calls them on these outrageous lies.

      • ceeenbee

        Exactly.

      • TrollopeReader

        Journalism is dead.

  • TrollopeReader

    the “courageous conservative’ PAC ….??

    • BobSF_94117

      Hiding behind anonymous contributions. Who said they don’t do irony…

      • TrollopeReader

        i think the cowardly lion has more courage than that PAC !

  • Marky

    Now we’re bringing on the “mandatory celebration”? That’s the new one?

    Oh like that Christmas shit that we deal with every year? Do you know how much crap at work we have to “tear down” after your “mandatory celebration”?

    Yeah, mandatory celebration totally represents deviance from traditional values.

    Get fucked.

  • Cary Chauvet

    Vote Democrat! Feel the Bern…

    • Doug105

      Don’t feed their ignorance.

    • Joe knows who I am.

      This is why we need free, higher education.

      • Cary Chauvet

        I have a Masters Degree in Computer Science while you hide behind an alias and a black and white monitor. You lack any credibility. Explain to all of us who is going to pick up the $14 Trillion price tag for Bernie’s Universal Health Care. Answer: YOU, the uneducated are!

        • TrollopeReader

          Oh, the pompass shill has arrived, oh joy.

        • Joe knows who I am.

          Brilliant retort.

        • Chucktech

          So, what’s your idea to provide health care to every citizen of this country, like any other first world country does?

          I’m so fucking tired of hearing that nobody has any money for anything, yet we can throw away a few trillion $ on catastrophic shit like Iraq.

          • TrollopeReader

            Ask him how well HillaryCare is doing.

        • NancyP

          BFD. I have a doctoral degree in a field that puts me in the top 5% to 10% for income (OK, I have an abbreviation too). I was a child when the marginal tax rate was …90%. That was in the early 1960s – the economy was growing fast then. Currently the marginal tax rate is 36%, being raised to 39%. A marginal tax rate of 50% for the ultra rich is possible. I don’t like paying taxes, but I am not such a child as to refuse to acknowledge that social security, war, education, infrastructure, etc have to be paid for. I drive – of course I should be paying a highway tax, I would be willing to pay a little more on gas (it’s a regressive tax and I wouldn’t want to soak those just getting by) and considerably more in income tax to have the necessary bridge repairs done, for one.

          • Cary Chauvet

            Yeah but you’re old. I’m not. And I’m married to a handsome commercial architect with his own very successful firm. His contributions to the San Francisco skyline beats any old lady’s doctoral degree. 😉

          • Matthew Larsen

            But who ARE you “NancyP (Guest)”? Why do you hide behind an alias?

  • rusty57

    Liars calling liars liars calling liars liars calling liars…
    This shit is starting to make me dizzy(er).

  • Michael Rush

    They say “Tearing Down Judeo-Christian Values” like it’s a bad thing .

    • TrollopeReader

      oddly, they never seem to feature any of the “Judeo” part … except one line in leviticus ….

  • Chris Baker

    I hope Trump wins in SC. A lot of polls are predicting him, but you never know. I hope Trump wins a few more primaries, but then Cruz wins even more by a close margin. Hope that Cruz gets the nomination and Trump runs as an independent.

    Oh, dear FSM, let it be so!

  • goofy_joe

    Shame on any of the creative people who help make awful ads like this. Fear and base ignorance is all this ad is. It’s clear he only wants to support and rise up the people who think like him, not ALL Americans.

  • delk

    When are they going to pull out Michelle Duggar? Going to save her for Arkansas? General Election?

    You know neither of her gaping holes can stay shut.

      Fuxabee was hoping she’d win him some votes …. *sigh*

      • Reality.Bites

        Well she did… the number of votes he got was exactly equal to the number of Duggars.

    WTF is said in the last few seconds? Not that I care but I guess it’s the legal mumbo-jumbo stuff. So Cruz is all anti-gay? THE best reason to not vote for him. I don’t think Trump’s any better, tho.

  • bob

    cruz translation, ” I hate the gays more than trump , but I’ll still party with them and take their money ! “

  • Marides48

    “Our America”. that is so exclusionary. Eww, we can’t share OUR America with those icky Gays.

  • justmeeeee

    Has anybody ever noticed that ted looks like The Penguin from the old Batman series?

  • abqdan

    This is why Cruz will be the Republican nominee – he knows how to play dirty, and he likes doing it. The Perfect Republican.

  • Ninja0980

    Just another reminder of why anyone who is LGBT and supports the Republican Party is a fool.
    They hate us, they truly do.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    “Courageous Conservative Political Action Committee.” HA! From the sound of it, Cowardly would be a more apt title this PAC.

  • IDavid

    Cruz and all the R’s in his court are a bunch of scaredy cats. Little girls w anger issues. They’ve just never known how to deal with those foriegn objects between their legs. In fact they’re pretty flipp’n mad about it. Their fictional earth god Yahgey really got em good on that one. If religionists hadn’t beat this ideology into mankind for the last 2000 years we wouldn’t have to be putting up with this rediculous monster mash side show. Isn’t it time we retire all fictional religious gods and replace them with the real one? I mean, real-ly.

  • Princess Lardass

    “It’s about mandatory celebration.”

    We won’t force you to celebrate. By all means, go stand in a corner and pout to your black heart’s content.

  • HazumuOsaragi

    Love the production values of this one, especially the angelic-chorus ‘AHhh!’ when Cruz’s name is mentioned…

  • Mark

    Cruz has shifted gears. He’s no longer running – he’s pushing trump out of the way – and he will play every dirty card in the deck to do so. Add that Cruz’s extremism is shadowed only by Trump’s – which ends up making Cruz look more ‘electable’. Cruz is the only threat to Bern or Hilz as he will go for the jugular. And the GOP doesn’t care as long as an R wins. Folks, this shit is getting serious.

    • KnownDonorDad

      I’ve been most worried about Cruz from the beginning. Hoping he gets schlonged by Trump today.

      • Mark

        Looks like he got schlonged – and good!

  • Cosmo Tupper

    So our mere existence is “Tearing Down Judeo-Christian Values”? Wow, your values aren’t very “closely held” if you can’t coexist. Your jesus is sobbing to the point of throwing up over what his followers have become. Judgmental, uncaring, exclusionary bigots. Love thy neighbor, my @ss!

  • Friday

    *laugh*
    Arguments *between* a bunch of liars is pretty funny. Trump lies, Cruz lies, no, none of them are anything but anti-LGBT, but apparently being so is all any of them think they have.

    It’s Cruz Cat!

  • KnownDonorDad

    “It’s not about tolerance anymore,” the narrator continues. “It’s about mandatory celebration.”

    *gasp* No…NO! Not…CELEBRATION! Compared to bullying, suicide, homelessness, assault, rape, and murder…it’s so much worse..CELEBRATION…and accepting MONEY! Oh, the humanity! The horror….the horror….
