Cruz Calls Clinic Shooter ‘Transgendered Leftist Activist’

The man accused of killing three people at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado is a “transgendered leftist activist,” according to Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz.

CNN reported that the Texas senator disputed media reports suggesting Robert Lewis Dear was motivated by his pro-life views. “There’s very little evidence to support that,” Cruz said Sunday while campaigning in Iowa.

When asked about Dear having allegedly mentioned “body parts” following his rampage, the candidate responded: “Well, it’s also been reported that he was registered as an independent and a woman and transgendered leftist activist, if that’s what he is.”

CNN noted that Cruz was probably referring to a post by The Gateway Pundit, a conservative blog, that featured a voter-registration form identifying Dear as a woman. The senator’s staff told Buzzfeed that he simply wants “to make the point that we don’t know all the details.”

Cruz said he does not agree with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, another GOP White House hopeful, who described the mass shooting as a case of “domestic terrorism.” Cruz told CNN’s Brianna Keilar: “I would call it a murder, and we’ll see what the facts are. It was a multiple murder of what appears to be a deranged individual.”

While he has been climbing in the polls, Cruz continues to trail front-runner Donald Trump by a large margin.
