Texas Senator Ted Cruz ruffled some feathers when he posted a Russian propaganda video comparing the Russian army to the United States military, to his Twitter account on Thursday.  The Senator included in the tweet, “Perhaps a woke, emasculated military is the not the best idea”.  The video itself, on the Russian part, shows footage of well-defined Russian men in homoerotic undertones intercut with warlike images, and when the video cut to the portrayal of the U.S. military through a cartoon of Army Corporal Emma Malonelord and her journey in joining the United States Army.

The spliced video of Malonelord’s story was taken from a video on the Army’s official YouTube channel.  Her story was one of a five-part video series called “The Calling” created for recruitment purposes. After the video was uploaded to YouTube on May 4, it has received over a million views and unfortunately has over 76,000 dislikes. 

In a statement for Army Times, Laura DeFrancisco, public affairs chief for the Army Enterprise Marketing Office explained:

“Beginning May 12 we started noticing a significant uptick in negative commentary. The comments violated our social media policy and were not aligned with Army values. Out of respect for the safety and wellbeing of our soldiers and their families, we have disabled the comments.”

Meanwhile, people flocked to Cruz’s tweet to drag the senator for his words. Some called out the fact he never served in the military.

Others called out Cruz for sexism.


Some pointed out the homoeroticism in the Russian video.

Then there were those who called out Cruz for his hypocrisy.

The best burn came from MSNBC’s Brian Williams, who gave Cruz a new nickname: Kremlin Cruz.

Cruz later elaborated on the meaning of his previous tweet.

Yet there were those that didn’t buy into his explanation.

Let us know what you think in the comments or on our social media accounts.

  1. I am an extremely indulgent cross-dresser, so not only do I not see anything at all wrong with any sort or degree of emasculation, I consider self emasculation to be an essential prerequisite for crossdressing and the associated imperative self-feminization. Before one can fully enjoy self-feminization one must discard, forfeit, and reject all masculinity.and that also makes emasculation the next best thing to feminization. Furthermore, I think it is fabulous that many women want to be soldiers! We need a strong military and I, for one not only have no desire to be a soldier, I would be useless as one! I would be a great dancer and cross-dressed showgirl in the USO but soldier? Uh, no! No soldier here at all! Just guns alone look to me like they would be constant nail breakers, pantyhose runners and rippers of fine fabrics! I could only imagine what a nightmare minefield of fabric and attire damaging gitters would be all over inherent in military activities! I am all in support of brave ladies that would prefer to wear the pants in my world honey because I don’t even own a pair of pants or even slacks or capris! No Sir! Out of principle alone It is skirts and dresses only for THIS exceedingly effeminate weakling! I do have a gorgeous pair of gold metallic glittered camo five-inch stiletto sandals but the camo is strictly a novelty of show. Even I would be considered athletically-blessed to just be able to shoot a game of pool wearing them! I also have a cute camo tutu but neither the tutu nor the stilettos will be going on a grueling forced march anytime soon and if the activity involves perspiring, you can count me out! I do a lot of fragrances but B.O. is not one of them!

  2. So Cancun Ted likes Russian Porn over American all Voluntary military? Makes perfect sense since he never volunteered to serve. This coming from a Vietnam Era vet who joined the US Navy on July 14, 1970 after graduating from high school. Cancun Ted is nothing but a Coward and a Hypocrite who go back to Cuba where he comes from!!!!
