Listen To The Painfully Earnest Rap Song Dedicated To Ted Cruz (AUDIO)

If the Founding Fathers had founded a rap group, surely they would have sounded like the trigger-happy, freedom-loving hip-hop artists “We Are Watchmen.”

That’s what they suggest, anyway, in their new track endorsing presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), “Set It On Fire,” posted to YouTube on Wednesday.

“When power is concentrated centrally and federally / It creates dependency that’s medically like leprosy,” belt the group in the high-octane tribute to Cruz and the American Way.

A further taste:

Make D.C. listen, switch off the dead news / The lamestream media feeding us the Fed stew / Collectivism, everyone’s a victim like the Reds do / And for our next president, we’re all in for Ted Cruz.

The band posted an equally baffling, Nazi-referencing statement on their website, flagged by New York magazine:

Just as many churches in Germany sang louder on Sunday mornings to drown out the sounds of wailing Jews in boxcars on the way to the concentration camps, the majority of pulpits and pews in the American churches have been willfully ignoring the stench of blatant evil rising in this once godly nation.
