To Have Thought Otherwise About the True Meaning of the Dogwhistle You’d Have to Have Had Arkham Asylum Values, But Thanks for the Clarification Nevertheless

From the New Republic:

Ted Cruz confirms that “New York values” is code for “Jewish.”

[N]ow Cruz has clarified what New York means in his mind. Again, talking about Trump at recent New Hampshire event, Cruz said, “For him to make this attack, to use a New York term, it’s the height of chutzpah.” Chutzpah is a Yiddish word, so a “New York term” means one inflected by a dialect associated with Jewish immigrants and their descendants. And that can also only mean that Jewish values—sorry, New York values—are inimical to the good conservatives of the American heartland.
