Oct 18 - Ted Cruz rebuked by Australian official: ‘You know nothing about us’

Now Ted Cruz knows how a boomerang works.

The Texas senator took the liberty of speaking out against Australian vaccine mandates last week, tossing in his two cents about its “current government.” On Sunday night, Cruz’s words came back to wallop him, thanks to the chief minister of that country’s northern territory.

“I love the Aussies,” Cruz tweeted Wednesday. “Their history of rugged independence is legendary; I’ve always said Australia is the Texas of the Pacific.”

The conservative lawmaker then referenced, “The Covid tyranny of their current government” which he described as “disgraceful & sad.”


The 50-year-old Lone Star state politician signed off by claiming he stands with “the people of Australia.”

Labor party representative Michael Gunner, who is one of those people, responded to Cruz on Twitter with both barrels blazing.

“G’Day from Down Under,” Gunner tweeted at Cruz, before providing the Texan with “some facts.”

He started by pointing out to Cruz that nearly 70,000 of the senator’s constituents have died from COVID, which has run amok in the Lone Star State. Gunner said no one has died from COVID in his territory.

“Did you know that?” Gunner asked.

He also wondered if Cruz was aware that vaccinations are crucial to the Northern Territory, where Gunner says legislators have “the oldest continuous living culture on the planet” to protect.

Gunner then noted that over the past 18 months, the pandemic has only forced his territory to go into lockdown for eight days total.

“Did you know that?” he asked.

All of the Northern Territory’s businesses and classrooms are also operational, Gunner said, before really taking Cruz to school.

“We don’t need your lectures, thanks mate,” he wrote. “You know nothing about us.”

Gunner then added that if Cruz stands against life-saving vaccines, he doesn’t stand with the people of Australia.

“I love Texas (go Longhorns),” he tweeted. “But when it comes to COVID, I’m glad we are nothing like you.”

When running against Donald Trump in the 2016 GOP primary, Cruz made enemies in the Empire State by insulting Trump’s “New York values.” That comment came back on the Texas senator months later when he visited New York campaigning for votes.

“You’re running on an anti-immigrant platform, and you’re speaking in the Bronx?” one protester said.

Are people really gonna come in here and defend Australia because they dislike Cruz? Fvk Cruz, but AUS is crazy right now and I don't think you'd be very happy if u lived there. Watch some videos on the protests, and the crazy regulations they are living under.

Cruz maybe an idiot, and everything else you wanna call him, but he is right for attacking Aussie policies on Covid. They are out of control.

so, a christian is judging another person who demonstrated a commitment to keeping the people he's responsible for alive

He started by pointing out to Cruz that nearly 70,000 of the senator’s constituents have died from COVID, which has run amok in the Lone Star State. Gunner said no one has died from COVID in his territory.
according to the bible, Ted has k*lled god 70,000 times

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
seriously, how do you guys cry about abortion, suicide and drinking and driving (all the same arguments apply) and then turn around and brush off 726,000 dead Americans in much less than 2 years?

how are you able to just completely ignore the 5th commandment that should've been first, but god had other priorities, like himself

“Thou shalt not k*ll.” ...
or how did you guys put up with drug laws, car laws, dress codes and smoking bans?

could it be, you're all just dirty spreader hypocrites that only care about your agenda of racist prosperity?

here's ya'lls flexible moral code and ethical fortitude summed up in one picture




have you been practicing your goofy speech to god about how you let people sleep on the streets and enabled the rampant manslaughter of our most vulnerable?

if not, you better start cuz you know not the day, nor the hour

Maybe there is a reason for Australia strict lockdown measures. Could it be that are fu*king Island? Its not like there are delays global supply chain. That country has to manage their limited resources. Not like bi*ch a*s Ted Cruz that just pack up and leave at the first sign of inconvenience.

I don't want to "watch some videos." You got anything to say to refute the Australian except sh*t "is crazy" and "out of control."

Australia has a population smaller than Texans spread across a mass of land that is bigger than all of Europe, it is the 6th least densely populated country in the world...your covid numbers should be exceptional.

So you're saying unless our behavior changes, our current living situations in America are more conducive to spreading a highly contagious disease?

Interesting. Somebody should do something about the behavior part. We should act before any more Americans die that don't have to.

You think 0 Australians have died of covid? And at what percentage is not being allowed to live a life worth it? If everyone was confined to there homes obviously there’d be a lot less death from covid but that isn’t possible and shouldn’t be wanted. Life is not without risk. Also America is a very obese country, 80%+ of hospitalizations where the obese and elderly

I am sure you know how covid spreads..., in-case you don't, it spreads exactly like the flu...i am saying population density is a huge contributing factor to the spread. Even Australia's largest cities are some of the least densely populated cities...like Melbourne, which is about the size of Los Angeles County with less than half the population.

Australia has a population smaller than Texas living in a land mass basically the size of the continental United States.
