    Peter King: ‘Vile’ phone calls by Ted Cruz allies

    King says the callers need to know 'they're following a false leader.

    Rep. Peter King, who has pulled no punches in criticizing Ted Cruz, said Thursday that supporters of the Texas senator have been bombarding his office with “vile” phone calls.

    The New York Republican has called Cruz a fraud for his calls to defund Obamacare, and said the senator’s campaign this summer to get the House to pass a government funding bill that defunds the health care law led to some offensive phone calls to King’s office.

    “The vehemence of the phone calls coming into the office. I don’t care, people can call me whatever they want … I haven’t heard such vile, profane, obscene language,” King said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday.

    King said while the majority of Cruz fans are “good people,” he’s concerned about what sentiments Cruz has preyed on. While he doesn’t know if Republicans can reach Cruz, they should try to “heal tensions” with his supporters, he said.

    “I’m not saying Ted Cruz is responsible for all his supporters, but he has tapped into a dark strain here in the American political psyche here, and again, the most obscene, profane stuff you can imagine all from people who say they support the Constitution,” King said. “I think what we have to do is reach out to his people and let them know that they’re following a false leader here.”

    The GOP hierarchy must come to understand the base is not with them one reason for the loss past two elections. The more left they move the more people they drop.

    I think what he is really whining about is, that the callers aren't kissing his ass. And don't have any trouble speaking plain English.

    Its about trying to marginalize Cruz and the Tea Party, paint them as radicals and silence them. Think about how radical our founding fathers were!

    Peter King is a New York establishment Republican just a shade lighter than Anthony Wiener. His constituents are no different than Wiener's were. A Texas Blue Dog democrat is more conservative than a North East Republican.
