Speaking to crowd in Lake Elmo, Minnesota last month, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz's father, Rafael, predicted that America will be destroyed if Hillary Clinton wins the 2016 election, reports Right Wing Watch.
Declaring that "we are ready to take America back," without identifying from whom, Cruz said he was encouraged by what he called a "groundswell all across America of people saying 'I am sick and tired of this garbage, I'm not going to take it anymore,'" to cheers of "Amen" from the audience.
Warning that "we don't have enough time," Cruz confidently predicted that "it will happen," ostensibly referring to the nomination of his son. He then explained that the only thing that could derail a surefire Republican takeover of the White House is if the mischievous forces of "the Republican establishment" are successful in manipulating Republicans to support a “mushy, middle-of-the-road, stand-for-nothing moderate like Jeb Bush.”
“And if Jeb Bush gets the nomination, Hillary will be our next president and this country will be destroyed,” Cruz warned, wagging his finger at the crowd.
The elder Cruz has made a similar comment in the past, remarking in April that if Clinton were to win the general election, “you might as well kiss this country goodbye.”
Cruz encouraged Republicans to go around the liberal media to "get the message" out that his son is the only GOP candidate that has the guts to speak out against "the Washington cartel."
