Ted Cruz is an absolute douchebag. His face and voice enrage me. He was a member of the Sedition Caucus, alongside Josh Hawley and more than a hundred Republican Congressmen, trying to ratf–k and rig the election for Donald Trump. Cruz and Hawley’s actions directly led to the Capitol siege, and the armed terrorists who violently stormed the Capitol even name-checked Cruz as someone who would agree with what they were doing. I guess Cruz thinks everybody will forget about that now. Cruz spent a lot of time on Twitter yesterday, pretending that he didn’t incite an armed insurrection. He spent a lot of time sneering at… Seth Rogen. Here’s how it played out:
In the early hours of Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who recently helped incite a MAGA-zombie coup attempt, thereby endangering his fellow lawmakers and tearing at the fabric of American democracy, got into a Twitter war of words with the comedy actor and filmmaker Seth Rogen.
After Rogen tweeted at Cruz to “f–k off you fascist” (reasonable, all things considered), the fellow Canadian tweeted a screenshot of it accompanied by the pearl-clutching (and confusing) caption: “Charming, civil, educated response. @Sethrogen. If you’re a rich, angry Hollywood celebrity, today’s Dems are the party for you. If you’re blue-collar, if you’re a union member, if you work in energy or manufacturing… not so much. #JobsMatter.”
(For the record, Cruz, who is himself a multimillionaire graduate of Princeton and Harvard Law, and married to a managing director of Goldman Sachs, recently tried to foil the election on behalf of former President Donald Trump, a supposed billionaire real estate magnate and sometime reality-television host who inherited millions of dollars from his father and sh-ts on gold toilets.)
Well, after that, Rogen unloaded on Cruz, tweeting, “Haha get f–ked fascist. Go encourage a white supremacist insurrection again you f–king clown.”
He wasn’t finished. “If you’re a white supremacist fascist who doesn’t find it offensive when someone calls your wife ugly, Ted Cruz is the exact motherf–ker for you,” wrote Rogen, adding, “Also I’m in four unions.”
Rogen, a self-made guy who did not attend college, was referring to the time Trump tweeted out a photo of Cruz’s wife, Heidi, implying that she was ugly—before threatening to “spill the beans” on her, whatever that means. Trump also accused Cruz’s father, Rafael, of participating in the JFK assassination, and branded the senator “Lyin’ Ted” in the 2016 GOP presidential primaries. Cruz has served as his humble servant anyway.
I’m really feeling Seth Rogen’s energy. I feel like that’s the energy we need to bring to the next four years: calling out fascist a–holes constantly and thoroughly. President Biden said a lot about unity and I’m of the belief that he *has* to say that sh-t at the beginning, so that later he can say “I tried, I came to you and tried to have unity but now that’s done.” We don’t have to hold ourselves to the same standards though. Let’s hold ourselves to Seth Rogen’s standards. F–k Your Fascism.
Also, this is what Ted Cruz wore to the inauguration:
That Ted Cruz would wear a “Come And Take It” mask to President Biden’s inauguration – especially when Biden and Harris are the target of assassination threats – tells you everything you need to know about this pathetic man. pic.twitter.com/BrtpnJlADx

This is the tweet which got the ball rolling – the replies on this are *chef’s kiss*
By rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, President Biden indicates he’s more interested in the views of the citizens of Paris than in the jobs of the citizens of Pittsburgh. This agreement will do little to affect the climate and will harm the livelihoods of Americans.
