Don’t mess with Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw.
Just don’t do it.
Not only is the war hero a former Navy SEAL, but he’s an all-around good guy who has facts on his side.
Crenshaw has gone toe-to-toe with numerous Democrats since winning a seat in Congress, and he has shown no sign of slowing down anytime soon.

From Daily Wire:
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) slammed far-left New York Times writer Wajahat Ali on Tuesday after Ali mocked the notion that Republicans like Crenshaw were “patriots” and falsely claimed that Crenshaw did not support the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund.
Ali made his vile comments in response to comedian Jon Stewart slamming members of Congress on Tuesday over their failure “to ensure that a victims’ compensation fund set up after the 9/11 attacks won’t run out of money — and for skipping a hearing devoted to that very crisis,” Fox News reported.

Hey “journalist,” maybe you should check your facts. I am a co-sponsor. Nice try though.

Ali then tried once more, because why not, right?
Thanks for letting me know. I’m glad you did and I have no problem correcting and updating the record with facts. Now try it with your comments about Ilhan Omar. You’ll feel better. Sincerely, a fellow patriot. https://t.co/6bAsYBpxsY

During one of his numerous deployments to Afghanistan, Crenshaw was blinded by a roadside bomb. Dan lost his right eye but surgery saved the vision in his left eye.
He has received two Bronze Stars, the Purple Heart, and the Navy Commendation Medal with Valor.
And yet, none of that matters to far-left, unhinged liberals who seek to defend embattled freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) at all costs.
Crenshaw was dismayed when he heard that Omar said “some people did something” on 9/11, as were all proud Americans.
That’s when the left pounced.
From Washington Examiner:
Rep. Dan Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL who was wounded in Afghanistan, was derided the left and accused of “playing the wounded victim” after he called for “deference” in discussions of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Talia Lavin, a New York University journalism professor who resigned from the New Yorker last year after she incorrectly identified a U.S. immigration agent as a Nazi sympathizer, slammed Crenshaw as “captain shithead” on Twitter. “The real victim, captain shithead, speaks,” wrote Lavin, linking to Crenshaw’s video.
Freelance writer Rob Rousseau said: You’re deliberately lying about what [Omar] said you eyeless fuck.
Rousseau’s tweet was deleted, but found:

Ryan Cooper, a national correspondent at “The Week,” noted: classic fascist propaganda technique: whip up a storm of murder frenzy, then operatically play the wounded victim

“Saturday Night Live” castmate Pete Davidson lost his father, a firefighter, on 9/11.
Since then, Davidson has been to rehab for substance abuse and admitted to having mental health issues.
Pete was engaged to singer Ariana “I hate America” Grande but the two have since parted ways.
Pete and SNL had no problem whatsoever openly mocking then-Congressional Crenshaw’s war wounds.
Dan Crenshaw was nearly blinded in 2012 when he was hit by an IED blast in Afghanistan’s Helmand province, where he was on his third deployment. He lost his right eye in the blast, and his left eye was badly damaged.

Check out Crenshaw’s excellent response:
Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes.

Here’s @DanCrenshawTX ‘s unofficial response to you jackasses mocking him for losing an eye fighting the Taliban on his 4th tour of duty as a Navy SEAL in Afghanistan.

I interviewed @DanCrenshawTX for a piece on vets running. I enjoyed our conversation — and as an American I am incredibly grateful for his service and his sacrifice. Our country is better off with more people like him in Congress, party aside.
