Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a Republican, has a well earned reputation for being a straight shooter. He will tell you the honest-to-goodness truth whether you like it or want to hear it. Our society and culture is in desperate need of bold men who possess a spine of steel, which definitely describes Cruz and many of the conservatives who have come into public service in the aftermath of former President Donald Trump fit this description. However, we still need more. Please and thank you.
Anyway, Cruz, who is also a constitutional scholar, lived up to his reputation during a recent rant against the National Security Agency on Monday, responding to the Daily Wire’s investigation into the agency’s creation of a woke diversity, equity, and inclusion glossary that is being used to push Critical Race Theory and radical gender ideology.
According to the Daily Wire:
The glossary, first uncovered in an exclusive investigation from The Daily Wire, blames “white Europeans” for “settler colonialism,” promotes the gender-neutral pronouns “ze” and “zir,” and even warns of “transmisogyny.”
“This stuff is nonsense, it is garbage, it is poison. Do you know what it isn’t? National security,” the Texas Republican said on his Verdict with Ted Cruz podcast concerning the 34-page document, which also provides definitions for terms like “anti-racism,” “white fragility,” “demigender,” and “two-spirit.”
That last one, “two-spirit,” is pretty dang creepy, folks. I mean, back in the day, we used to just call that being possessed. If anyone claims to have two spirits, better call a priest instead of a psychologist.

The senator then issued a warning that the agency’s focus on woke ideology could potentially pull away resources from actual security concerns. Let’s face it, wokeness and the so-called issues it’s supposed to address are nowhere near a national security threat. Not even close. The hundreds of thousands of people crossing the southern border, many of whom are on the terrorist watch list, pose a far graver threat to the safety of American citizens than anything in the woke category.
“How come nobody at the NSA got signals intelligence on Hamas planning the biggest mass murder of Jews since the Holocaust on October 7th? Maybe because instead, they were focused not only on Critical Race Theory, but also queer theory,” Cruz stated.
He also honed in on specific definitions in the glossary, highlighting the NSA’s definition of “settler colonialism,” which denigrates the founding of the United States. “Apparently they think that founding of land that is now the United States is an example of ‘oppressive governance’ and ‘settler colonialism,’” the Senator remarked.
Cruz went on to highlight the NSA’s definitions for “decolonization” and “white privilege” before adding “The CBP is not allowed to secure the border because they having to figure out the sexual orientation of human traffickers and drug traffickers instead of stopping them and arresting them, and now the NSA is not looking for terrorists because they’re busy worrying about settler colonialism and queer theory.”
“There is nothing about this that is national security,” Cruz explained. “They are being driven by the Biden White House’s obsession with leftist woke politics,” he added before slamming the administration as “fundamentally unserious” and stating that the glossary “reads like a Saturday Night Live satire.”
It blames “White Europeans” for “settler colonialism," attacks "white fragility," and warns of “transmisogyny.”

There are a lot of reasons to boot Joe Biden from the White House and work toward purging federal agencies of the deep state, but now there’s another one. Vote, folks.
