Ted Cruz shocked that MSNBC is shocked over claim of Marxists at Harvard


Sen. Ted Cruz, already depicted as the reincarnation of Sen. Joseph McCarthy by everyone from the New York Times to Cher, was the subject of much hand-wringing yesterday over a report that he believed there were more Marxists than Republicans teaching at Harvard Law School during his time there.

Feeling the heat, Cruz took to Twitter today to backtrack. What? He didn’t? Is this how McCarthy would have responded?

MSNBC is shocked — shocked — to discover that there are Marxists on the Harvard faculty… youtube.com/watch?v=SjbPi0…

@sentedcruz I think they were shocked that anyone would call out marxism as not being mainstream

@sentedcruz Progressives in the MSNBC forest can’t see the Marxists for the trees. #URWhatUEat
