Defining political child abuse: A tale of two Cruz families

Sophie Cruz’s family now works with FWD.us, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s multimillion-dollar lobbying group, which just two weeks ago featured the girl in a high-profile ad campaign reading a fear-mongering script on “how her family would be ripped apart” if America got serious about deporting illegal border crossers, visa overstayers, document fraudsters, and criminal-alien fugitives.

The Washington Post again provided positive coverage of little Sophie Cruz’s latest foray in politics. The article attacked Republicans who support strict immigration enforcement and included a massive photo of the cute child, supplied by her father, coloring a “pro-immigration” propaganda picture for amnesty.

Now, imagine.

Imagine if a conservative political cartoonist had depicted Sophie as an organ grinder’s monkey on a leash held by her illegal-immigrant parents and Mark Zuckerberg.

Imagine if a conservative political cartoonist had defended the depiction of Sophie as a chained dancing monkey by commenting that her parents’ use of their daughter in political ads and media stunts made the child “fair game.”

Imagine the front-page, white-hot, and nonstop outrage from Democrats, journalists, and the White House that would ensue.
