A video of Senator Ted Cruz' father shows the Cuban immigrant saying he wants to send President Obama "back to Kenya."

"When Obama campaigned in 2008 it was very, very clear that he was a socialist. He wasn't trying to fool anyone. It was clear from what he was saying that he was an outright Marxist," Rafael Cruz said. 

"Mother Jones" released the video which shows Rafael Cruz telling a North Texas Tea Party gathering in September 2012 how important it was to get Obama out of Washington DC. 

The video also shows the elder Cruz encouraging Dallas voters to vote straight Republican because he was worried about the liberal leaders in the city and county.

A spokesperson for Senator Ted Cruz says the quotes were taken out of context and that Rafael Cruz doesn't speak for his son.
