The New York Times apparently didn’t learn from Deadspin.

Don’t mess with Ted Cruz.

After Cuban-American U.S. Senators Cruz and Marco Rubio forcefully denounced white nationalists and called for a full Federal investigation into Saturday’s fatal attack in Charlottesville, Virginia a New York Times reporter made the mistake of trying to pick a Twitter fight with Cruz.

“Sorry to be cynical, but most of all Rubio and Ted Cruz to me seem mostly to be doing a tremendous job of posturing for 2020,” tweeted reporter Eric Lipton Sunday.

Big mistake.

“Gosh, you’re right,” Cruz shot back. “Because Nazis & the Klan have such love for Cuban-Americans. If only we worked for a paper that shilled for Stalin….”

Cruz continued, “I know it’s hard to understand. Too many schools don’t teach NYT’s shameful history covering up Soviet atrocities.”

Cruz “attached a link to the Wikipedia article on Walter Duranty, a New York Times journalist who ignored the famine suffered under Josef Stalin in his Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting from the USSR,” The Washington Examiner reports.

Lipton did not respond to his pants-down whipping from Cruz.

    This is so typical of the main stream media = throw out idiotic statements that have no basis in fact and see what sticks to the wall. By the way, when’s the last time the New York Times posted an article about Russian collusion? Their lies and fake news about that has run its course so time for another President Trump bashing invention.

    There was an episode in the Senate when the
    conservative Senator Cruz from Texas asked the ultraliberal Senator Feinstein
    from San Francisco which part of the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights
    would permit the government to forbid the publishing of a given book. That
    far-left bloviating gasbag then engaged in a long tirade describing her
    education, her 20-years of experience in Congress, and her inborn smarts in
    matters of the Constitution, and that she needed no instruction from the
    Senator from Texas. Our MSM stopped their reports at that point; they skipped
    Senator Cruz’ comment where he remarked that Senator Feinstein had not answered
    his question. Finally she was forced to state that no part of the First
    Amendment would forbid publication of any book; well, she just said “None”. I
    found that comment by Senator Cruz a perfect putdown of that liberal
    know-nothing. She is the main proponent of the new gun control legislation that
    would make it illegal for Americans to possess a large variety of specific guns
    and munitions. Bravo, Senator Cruz! Senator Feinstein’s long self-praise answer
    can now be given place of honor alongside the ultraliberal Congresswoman
    Pelosi, also from San Francisco, whose remark upon the passage of Obamacare
    that now the Americans can finally read the new 2,100-page long document “to
    see what’s in it”. Actually the law was not passed – it was “deemed passed”
    without the explicit vote, so that no specific Democrat could be accused of
    voting for that socialist monstrosity.

    Nancy Pelosi, the defender of the working man,
    demanded that a 25% increase in the minimum wage be enacted. She owns, with her
    husband of the well-known Cleveland Mafia family, a Napa Valley vineyard worth
    $25 million. The vineyard produces expensive grapes for high-end wines. Napa
    grapes bring up to $4,000 a ton compared with $300 a ton for, say, San Joaquin
    grapes. But Pelosi, winner of the 2003 Cesar Chavez award from the United Farm
    Workers, hires only non-union workers (many of them illegal aliens) and sells
    these grapes to non-union wineries. She is also a co-owner with her husband of
    a textile factory in Guam which also employs non-union workers at well under
    the US market hourly rates – about $3/hr.
