Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw shared some thoughts about the Democrat strategy as the November election gets closer:
The tacit acceptance (and sometimes encouragement) of mob violence & political intimidation by elected Democrats should, by itself, be a disqualifying factor in the November election.
They are attempting to hold America hostage by creating chaos unless you give them power.

However, the blowback from the Left started almost immediately. This is just a sampling:
The people in Rep. Dan Crenshaw's #TX2 district are out of work, out of food, and out of hope. He has failed to serve his constituents in a #pandemic and instead has become a full-time propagandist for #TrumpViolence. https://t.co/c5L0u6GwY3

Are you serious? The only one attempting to hold our wonderful country hostage is Trump! A blatantly corrupt POTUS! You know it, we all know it. https://t.co/g0NCw1HyDv

.@DanCrenshawTX, no one is encouraging or accepting "mob violence" except, well, YOU. You're exploiting singular events within a larger context so you can stoke fear among your fellow @GOP @realDonaldTrump misfits. https://t.co/d3OrdYuYpl
