Ted Cruz Tattooed Badass Rock Star [Artist Id'd / fR Mentioned]
Mediaite ^ | 03/16/14 | Luke O'Neil

Posted on 03/16/2014 2:42:54 PM PDT by BunnySlippers

UPDATE: The images appear to be the work of a Los Angeles artist Leonard Sabo, who posted an attempt at the design back on March 9. I’ve reached out to Sabo for comment, and will update when I hear back. His political and artistic views are, uh, interesting, to put it mildly, most offensive of which is that he seems to think Cruz could actually be president some day.

---

"Actually, kinda cool looking,” wrote one Free Republic commenter. “Maybe we can all get tats and stuff and form a ‘gang’. Call it the Patriot Gang or something. Put some drive-by fear into the liberals.”

Maybe!

“The Ted Cruz posters make me want to go get a giant eagle tattoo,” tweeted another Cruz supporter.

I hear rumors that Luke O’Neil is a known pedophile. Can't confirm. Only a rumor.

Don’t like tattoos BUT youngest son and his bud...kinda like another son, families are very close...got tattoos of our family motto on their right back shoulders. Oldest son and I are thinking of getting “Die Spitting Blood” on our shoulders as well.

Since I’m 65 ...what diffrence does it make. Plus mrs p6 says she will enjoy watching me not be able to deal with it.

“... Ted Cruz could actually be president some day.”

So who else is there with both super brains and braun .. can’t think of another person who could mold this nation back into shape.

If he runs, I’m going to be fully supporting him.

p.s. .. if you don’t like him .. well .. I don’t give a rip.

To me, this Cruz poster is making him look like a rebel.

Which he and other conservatives are rebels when you considered the fact the most, if not all, of the establishment (government, old media, large parts of the financial system) are run by liberals.

Young people like to be rebels and maybe, just maybe this could start a trend among the young ones. Be a rebel, be a conservative.

Funny you should say this. I agree that Conservatives & faithful Christians/Jews, etc are the real rebels. In a world where the prevailing beliefs are not really beliefs at all, but PC, anyone who is a true believer in the USA, its Constitution, and Almighty God who will render judgement one day is indeed a rebel.

John McCain is livid. The conservatives are talking about this Cruz Wacko Bird when they could be talking about me. I’m the mavrick, not him.

The first time I saw the picture I thought it was Bill Murray in Coffee and Cigarettes.

If this artiste wants to rake in a bundle of mooooolah, he needs to print up t-shirts with this graphic and sell them for $10 to $15 bucks each.

I can think of a few million Texans who would love ...just love ... to wear these when visiting lib venues. Or, just to other places where political speech isn't appreciated.

Cool guy, cool poster

So the guy trolls FR looking for a story. Can’t really blame him. I mean how many times can you write about how cool Obama looks in his mom jeans?

youngest son and his bud...got tattoos of our family motto on their right back shoulders.

My eldest son and I got identical tattoos of our Scottish family clan badge on our right shoulders over ten years ago. My younger sons have told me that they're going to follow suit as soon as they turn 18.

I never thought at the time that I was starting a family tradition, but it's kinda cool.

Despite having his head photoshopped onto the type of body that Cruz supporters live in mortal terror of on a daily basis, the reactions online to the makeover from some on the right have been rather positive.

“Actually, kinda cool looking,” wrote one Free Republic commenter. “Maybe we can all get tats and stuff and form a ‘gang’. Call it the Patriot Gang or something. Put some drive-by fear into the liberals.”

Maybe!

I agree. And I don’t think that poster will have the effect they wanted.

Yup it IS cool! That's why I am going to get one. Probably my oldest son as well. Family tradition.

Sadly we are lowland Scot...Stole horses for the MacDonald clan is what I have been told. Supposedly we were granted the land that is now Edinburgh but I wouldn't try to make a claim, LOL.

My Scot ancestors were from the lowland border counties. They were well known reivers (cattle rustlers), and on the King's list of 'unruly' clans.

Aye...

I think I made my msg to ;All - so if the shoe doesn’t fit then don’t try to put it on.

It’s just that a lot of times when I mention liking or supporting somebody .. there are a few who take great pleasure in calling me names; etc.

So .. actually, the note was to “them”.
