Skip to comments.POLICE INVESTIGATING GRAPHIC, VIOLENT THREATS MADE AGAINST TED CRUZ: ‘GO THE F*** BACK TO CANADA..

It seems that the rhetoric against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has gone from hateful to downright graphic and violent. The Capitol Police are investigating online threats made by an individual against the Texas senator, a Cruz spokesperson said Friday.
The threatening posts were made on Twitter by someone who identifies himself as Troy Gilmore Jr. and uses the Twitter handle @ArmyVet54. He has also listed Cruz’s home address in Houston several times and argued he needs to be “taught a street wise lesson.”
“Take down Ted Cruz, at his home,” the person tweeted, listing Cruzs home address in Houston.
“Lets Find Ted Cruz, Texas address and show up his House, drag him out and B***h slap his A** in front of the country,” another tweet reads.
“Ted Cruz, we want you a** go the f*** back in Canada, else you and ur family will pay. U got a f***ing big mouth,” the same person wrote.
In yet another threatening post, the user advocates hanging Cruz by his “small balls if he tries another ‘ShutdownTactic.’”
“We’re aware of it and have alerted the proper authorities. I can’t comment further on security matters,” Cruz spokesman Sean Rushton told The Hill.
Capitol Police spokesman Shennell Antrobus told the Hill the department is “looking into that matter” and that they take all threats against members of Congress seriously.
My political time and money goes to
.....reelect TED CRUZ.
.....defeat / remove RINO’s and RAT’s during PRIMARIES !
.....donate 10$ to FR every month !
And.....Do my best to make sure all the takers continue to get “took” by the socialist domestic enemies the idgits vote for !!!
My opinion..... Stay Safe !
Not surprising at all considering King Obama's daily mantra. The Childish King and his Chief Racist Enforcer Eric Holder have emboldened the small-minded.
Sounds like he is a hateful, ignorant, childish man. Have your read his tweets? Unbelievably immature and uneducated, for someone who supposedly served in the Army and Navy...makes one wonder what his duties were and what his discharge status was.
Also, has he been having his brain microwaved? He too has been frustrated for not receiving veteran benefits, according to his tweets, and we all know what happened recently by a disgruntled black vet who felt dissed by the Veterans Administration.
If any of us thought this was going to be easy, wasn’t going to be fraught with wins, losses, and reality...you be foolish. If we’re really saying we want the Republic back, then we need to commit to the long haul. We have about 100 years of catching up to do. This isn’t going to be fixed in one or two elections. We have to fix the culture.
If we want a lasting Republic we have to have a truly moral culture. How we turn back the damage done by the left in that regard is a good question. We live in a country of thousands of laws and yet we have one of the most immoral cultures on the planet today. In the book, “The 5,000 Year Leap,” the founders pondered if the people were moral enough to have liberty.
...moral enough to have liberty...
Cruz...and all of us face a challenge unlike the founders ever faced. The destruction of morality has taken place, such that even congressional leaders cannot even practice rules of appropriate decorum in public.
While I hope they find this guy, let us not forget it is the likes of Pelosi, Reid, and even our own Republican leaders who are ultimately responsible for instigating this ‘hate and danger’ to Cruz. There is coming a time when we ourselves will be in this kind of mortal danger if they keep up the rhetoric and lies.
What laws have they broken with their rhetoric? What slander has spewed forth from their rabid foaming mouths? At what point does such behavior tread upon the liberty of the Free Man? Words: hostage, extortion, terrorists, extremists, ...at what point are they slander against liberty and truth?
“The left is using a Saul Alinsky tactic against Ted Cruz...select a target, freeze it, harass, intimidate, threaten and destroy the target.”
Well, they’ve reached the point of “threaten.” So I guess an attempt on his life is next.
It’s on when it’s on. Did Breitbart die of natural causes? Did Tom Clancy?
Idiots make noise but when it happens chances are it will be natural causes
Troy Gilmore, Jr.
A cook, who believes his job in the kitchen, at a prison in Florida, makes him law enforcement - he even has threats on his linked in page:
Yep. They have no fear of prosecution by Holder’s Injustice Department.
“Whats the bet this is Al Sharpton?”
‘Just thinking the same thing. It’s the ebonics of a hoodie that wrote this and shouldn’t be too hard to track.
Obama supporters have been displaying thuggish behavior for about five years now.
Pray PrayPray for Ted Cruz and his family!!!
He needs our prayers desperately!..... He’s standing in the gap for US and our nation!!
He is a natural leader———and the enemy sees this.
They will do anything to shut him down........threats, smears, lies
Wow...if that is him....
He just crashed and burned with his tweets.
I'm keeping my options open.
That is certainly him...same picture on his twitter account where the threats are:
Has one democrat condemned this? Reid? Pelosi? Obama? McCain? They’re all responsible for fanning the flames.
I’m near Houston. If Mr. Cruz needs armed guards I’ll volunteer.
I would not be surprised if people like this are researched and then ‘primed’ to go off and commit ‘atrocities’ at a time and place when it will benefit certain ‘parties’ political agendas.
Could you be so kind as to add me to the list please. Thanks
Unless someone can convince me the military guy’s threats are REALLY from a military vet, it just seems too easy to see that as a liberal hiding behind a digital/electronic facade, part of some Van Jones/Jarrett concoction.
