Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz went scorched earth on the New York Times for publishing a story speculating that interracial marriage could be overturned in light of the leaked Roe v. Wade decision from the U.S. Supreme Court.

During an interview on “The Verdict with Ted Cruz,” the Texas senator said, “Now the Democrats have another tale, which if you notice that, when they’re talking about the Dobbs decision, they very, very quickly say if this decision goes into effect, it will strike down the availability of contraceptives.”

“Right,” agreed co-host Michael Knowles.

Cruz went on to reference a story from the NYT’s Adam Liptak titled, “If Roe Falls, Is Same-Sex Marriage Next?”

Cruz continued, “It will strike down gay marriage and interracial marriage. The New York Times went so far. The editorial board of The New York Times suggested that there were multiple states in the union that if they were allowed to, would ban interracial marriage, what utter garbage!”

“You, bigoted moronic, Manhattan leftist, elite lying sacks of crap!” Cruz yelled.

“How do you really feel?” Knowles asked jokingly.

“Yeah, it, it kind of pisses me off,” Cruz admitted. “And I would note, by the way, that these racist leftists of The New York Times, there may be no one on planet earth, whom they despise more than Justice Clarence Thomas.”

“Right,” Knowles said.

“He is in an interracial marriage. I suspect Clarence Thomas would be quite surprised. If he were doing something to strike down interracial marriage, but the only people who imagine interracial marriage is gonna be struck down is radical leftists, because they’ve never actually met a conservative voter,” Cruz said.

“So they think we’re all right, bigoted klansmen. But here’s the tell on this, when the Democrats and the press are not defending their positions on abortion, it’s because they know their positions on abortion are wildly out of the mainstream,” Cruz added.

He concluded, “So anytime you hear them talking about contraception or marriage it’s cuz they’re trying to change the subject.”

The Supreme Court will soon deliver the official ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the highly anticipated abortion case that could overrule Roe v. Wade.

draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito was leaked to Politico earlier this month and it set off a firestorm on social media.

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts called the leak of a draft opinion “absolutely appalling” and announced an investigation to find the leaker.

“The draft opinion is a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision which guaranteed federal constitutional protections of abortion rights and a subsequent 1992 decision – Planned Parenthood v. Casey – that largely maintained the right,” Politico reported.

“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Alito writes.

“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” he writes in the document, labeled as the “Opinion of the Court.”

Alito adds: “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

“We, therefore, hold the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion. Roe and Casey must be overruled, and the authority to regulate abortion must be returned to the people and their elected representatives,” Alito writes in the document, labeled the “Opinion of the Court.”

Soon after Alito’s draft majority opinion leaked, it’s assumed there were at least 5 votes in favor of overturning Roe v Wade, leaving state legislators to weigh their own abortion policies.

More bluntly, if the Supreme Court does announce that Roe v Wade is overturned, each state will have to pass abortion laws and it’s likely many will enact very strict measures against the practice.

“The draft opinion is a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision which guaranteed federal constitutional protections of abortion rights and a subsequent 1992 decision – Planned Parenthood v. Casey – that largely maintained the right,” Politico reported.

Last week, Cruz also offered his opinion of who he believes the “leaker” could be.
