Is Ted Cruz the Zodiac Killer??
Some people are saying that Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is the notorious Zodiac Killer who terrorized Northern California between 1968 and 1969 and whose identity has remained a mystery ever since. Ted Cruz has never denied these allegations – what is he hiding??
I mean sure, Ted Cruz was born in 1970 in Canada, but since when have facts derailed a fun political conspiracy theory?
The internet is having a grand old time digging up “evidence” about Cruz’s supposed secret murderous identity these days. (A little extreme, maybe, but he did just personally hold up the Flint water bill that’s supposed to help children who’ve been drinking lead-poisoned water, so the comparison is a tempting one.)
It all started back in 2013 with this tweet from @RedPillAmerica:
Now, as Cruz becomes one of the frontrunners for the Republican nomination, this meme is becoming a way to get under the Christian Conservative’s skin by supporting abortion providers in the state of Texas.
Sales of this shirt will support the West End, a group that provides abortion services and support in southwest Texas. The description of the shirt reads:
“Ted Cruz is a terrifying monster. You know who else was a monster? The Zodiac Killer, who claimed to have killed 37 people in the Bay Area. Ted Cruz has never denied being the Zodiac Killer. The conclusion is simple—and Ted Cruz has never publicly refuted it.”
