After Republican Trump, Cruz advocates anti-heckler violence

This video from the USA says about itself:

Cruz Advocates Spanking Young Heckler

2 May 2016

A young heckler shouted at Ted Cruz during a campaign stop in Indiana. Cruz responded by saying he longed for the days when you could spank your children. Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, and Jimmy Dore hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“On Sunday, Sen. Ted Cruz suggested that the best response to a young protester who yelled “you suck” during a campaign rally in Indiana would be a good spanking. It’s the second time the Republican presidential candidate has brought up the controversial form of physical punishment on the campaign trail.

“Children should actually speak with respect,” Cruz said. …

Cruz then shared some parenting advice from his own family. “You know, in my household, when a child behaves that way, they get a spanking,” he continued, prompting cheers from the crowd.”

In the nineteenth century, Republican party president Abraham Lincoln used to deal with hecklers by replying to them wittily. Now, in 2016, prospective Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump deals with them by advocating violence. And so does his rival Ted Cruz.
