As Twitchy reported, the U.S. Army is out with a handful of Disney-style animated recruitment ads, one tracing a soldier’s life back to her childhood being raised by two moms and showing her participating in LGBTQ marches, which taught her all about fighting for freedom. This week, someone edited together that ad with a Russian army recruitment ad, which had absolutely nothing to say about diversity or lesbian weddings.
As we mentioned earlier Saturday, Sen. Ted Cruz retweeted the video, saying, “Holy crap. Perhaps a woke, emasculated military is not the best idea….” Cruz went on to eviscerate MSNBC’s Brian Williams, who coined the nickname “Kremlin Cruz” and criticized Cruz for sharing Russian propaganda.
Williams wasn’t the only one. A CNN panel on Jake Tapper’s show, “The Lead,” also concluded that Cruz was “pushing Russian propaganda.”

But it's okay when you push the (nonexistent) "Russian collusion" lie for four years, right?

Is that Jakob Tapperovski moderating? Checking files. Yes, the Russian dossier was and remains debunked. News at 11.

You believed in a fake Russian pee tape & are AOK with Biden closing down the AMERICAN pipeline but approving Russia’s pipeline. Give me a break

After spending half a decade pushing Russian propaganda that Putin never dreamed Jake Tapper & his crowd were dumb enough to push, Tapper has quite a set of balls to even mention Russian propaganda. He has no balls in any other context. https://t.co/5efxITdH2J

These new Army adds are woke and emasculating

I agree, that ad for our military was a goddamn embarrassment SMDH 😒

SMH at the, now pro-military comments from you j*acka**es. C'mon. The ad was an international embarrassment. The Russian ad was objectively cool. I'm not even American so I don't care for Russia or America so there's a detached opinion for you.
The American ad was cringe.

Neato. How about you ask veterans or those currently serving who they agree with?
I'm with Soldiers every day. You're probably not going to like what you hear.

How is Russia's ad "Russian propaganda" but the American ad is not "American propaganda"? Your whole premise makes zero sense.
— enhazed (@enhazed) May 22, 2021
Yeah that US ad is an embarrassment. Good Luck with that if you like it.

It deserved to be mocked

Jake, you’re embarrassing yourself. Cruz is right. Have you seen the commercials?
— Batman (@Batman161) May 22, 2021
Jake, that’s idiotic and misleading, and you know it. Cruz wasn’t shilling for the Russians. He was merely pointing out the differences between advertising campaigns for their militaries. And it’s shameful.
— Scott (@MIScott68) May 22, 2021
Tweeting a US military ad is Russian propaganda? Lol
— Commissar Jamal (@JamalCommissar) May 22, 2021
Um wut… it’s literally the US ad how is that Russian propaganda?
— Truth 🇺🇸 (@theRealTrueFan) May 22, 2021
Dude, that army ad is the definition of embarrassing. Get your head outta your ass.
— NHiriteInSouth (@NHiriteInSouth) May 22, 2021
Cruz is right.
— D-fens (@K_DoubleU13) May 22, 2021
Ted Cruz is 100% correct.
— Jim Bob Levy (@geotexasjew) May 22, 2021
But he's right about the ads.
— Amrond Thardell (@amrond99) May 22, 2021
Their ad is way more bad ass than ours though… right?
— Jason (@dogdadCA) May 22, 2021
Jake knows emasculated.
— DP (@DP76045022) May 22, 2021
The U.S. recruitment ads are just as guilty of pushing propaganda — leftist propaganda.
