The mainstream media will never give him credit, but Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas has a great grasp of social media and is quick on his feet, which means will never see that debate between him and his colleague Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
You might have heard that journalist Benny Johnson recently took a gig as chief creative officer for Turning Point USA, which recently held an event at the University of Arizona featuring Crenshaw. Behold some soy boy who can’t stop playing pocket pool long enough to make his statement claiming TPUSA is a Nazi organization and Crenshaw should be ashamed of his service in Afghanistan.
Imagine volunteering to fight for the military that beat the Nazis.
Becoming a Navy SEAL.
Serving 10 years.
Deploying to war 3 times.
Giving your eye (& almost your life) for your country.
Just to return home & get called a 'Nazi.'
Watch how @DanCrenshawTX handles that:

The man lost an eye and can still pull off the eye roll of the century. Too bad the kid didn’t stick around long enough to see it; maybe he was late for the healing circle in the university’s designated safe space.
And the wimpy kid, with his little backpack, so tough, stomps off like he's so proud of himself. Insult, and run away, big boy. ?

To me the saddest part of the video is that he storms off like a toddler. He has every right to his opinion, but if you are going to throw accusations at someone you owe that person the opportunity to respond. That’s what a mature person would do. He has no coping skills. Sad.

That's liberal masculinity right there. Juiced on soy and cowardice. If you really want to see it in action just check out Canada's Prime Minister.

That b-tch was dripping with soy, I thought he was going to cry.

Who WAS that little hit-and-run punk-ass?

Hands in his pocket and it’s not even cold…. good god I want to power bomb him.

He doesn’t know what to do with them when he’s not holding a bong.

The kid almost pissed himself at the microphone, speaking. I think I’ll follow the guy with the patch.
— Devin Vosburgh (@Buddyfunlove) April 27, 2019
The guy didn’t even have the guts to stick around. I really like Dan Crenshaw. Agree with pretty much everything I see him say.

Sad, that people fall back to that comparison. Perhaps if he talked to some holocaust survivors, it left an impact on my life. Maybe read the story of Lepa Radic. But, no, he just mindlessly spouts that tired insult. Rep Crenshaw handled it flawlessly.

That ungrateful kid is the strongest argument for mandatory military service. He has no concept of duty or sacrifice. No idea that the solider does what he is ordered to do as long as it is humane.

Every young man should serve. At least go through boot camp. Eye opening.

The lion doesn’t concern himself with the opinion of sheep. Seems to fit this encounter perfectly.

You cannot damage steel by hitting it with oatmeal??❤️

We “real” Americans love Dan and truly appreciate his service and sacrifices. Anyone who would question HIS patriotism or love of this country is just wrong and should feel ashamed!!!

I’m not even American but I like this Dan Crenshaw fella.

Love it man. So chill.

Illegal war of aggression? Could only be said by someone too young to remember the horror of 9/11. @RepDanCrenshaw, I don't know how you stay so calm and cool when you're insulted like that. It's impressive.
— Marcia J (@MarciaJWilson) April 27, 2019
I don’t think it bothers Dan all that much. If you have served, you really don’t take people who criticize your Service seriously. They have no idea of the sacrifice and brotherhood. Keep it up SEAL, let’s get you on the ticket in 2024

Crenshaw 2024 and it's not even close

How about Haley/Crenshaw 2024 and Crenshaw 2032?
