Rep. Dan Crenshaw ambushed by MAGA mob in his home state

#1 Post by Bob Juch » Sun Jun 19, 2022 7:46 am

Rep. Dan Crenshaw and his staff were violently confronted at the Republican Party of Texas convention a short time ago, when far-right social media activist Alex Stein and others whom witnesses described as Proud Boys began shouting “eyepatch McCain” at him – an attempted insult coined by Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson.

A witness to the incident tells Mediaite that in addition to Stein and others being escorted out of the building, “some arrests” were made at the scene. No photos or video have come out showing any at the time of this post.

“They got physical with multiple people, including hitting them with cameras,” a witness at the scene said. “His campaign manager was assaulted by being pushed aggressively into a pillar.”

You can see that part in the video above, which was shared by Stein and his blog. That version included a clip from Tucker Carlson’s show, in which the host refers to Crenshaw as “Eyepatch McCain” while speaking with Democrat Tulsi Gabbard.

In a photo shared with Mediaite, some of the ejected persons are seen outside the building wearing Proud Boys gear.

Update 1 – 4 pm:
Another Twitter user posted video of himself verbally accosting Rep. Crenshaw. There is no apparent shoving in the clip, but after shouting at the congressman, the user Alex Rosen shouts at various people in the hotel calling the congressman a “fraud” and a “World Economic Forum sell-out.” Another person applauds and shouts back that Crenshaw supports Red Flag laws.

In the video, Rosen also yells at an elderly woman that she is the “reason we’re in this situation” after she objects to his behavior.

At the end, another person with him shouts “Dan Crenshaw is a traitor! He needs to be hung for treason!” It may be the same individual seen in the red “45” hat in the above photo that was shared with Mediaite by witness.

This is what today's Republican party has become. People like Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert play to this crowd, while "leaders" like Mitch McConnell try to look away.

And Flock reminisces about how many of them shared wristbands with him at the Trump/Perdue/Walker rally.

The far left wing of the Democratic party is nowhere near controlling the direction in which the party goes.

If that were true, Liz Cheney would still be Chair of the House Republican Conference, Tom Rice would have won his primary, the Texas Republican Party wouldn’t have adopted a plank calling President Biden’s election illegitimate, Otoro County in New Mexico would have certified its votes without requiring a court order, Donny would have been convicted in the Senate and disqualified from office for inciting an armed insurrection that came too close for comfort to killing the Vice President and the Speaker of the House, and Republicans wouldn’t be nominating scores of candidates who would refuse to honor election results they don’t like, including candidates for Secretary of State. —Bob

It's not just Crenshaw. Here's a handwritten love letter Adam Kinzinger's wife just received. It was mailed from the area where Kinzinger's family lives:
Sophia:

You are one stupid c***! That pimp you married not only broke his oath, he sold his soul. Yours and Christian's [the Kinzingers' five-month-old son] too! Adam's activities have hurt not only this country, but countless patriotic and God-fearing families. Therefore, although it might take time, he will be executed. But don't worry! You and Christian will be joining Adam in Hell, too!

We find it blasphemous that you name the son of the devil Christian!
This is what the Republican party, with a few exceptions, has become. Hatemongers, useful idiots, and those who pretend to look the other way.

This was the only proof I needed that this conservatard was an Orange Former Guy supporter: He said "hung for treason". The correct phraseology is "hanged for treason". "Hung" means... umm, "well-endowed", a subject very unfamiliar to Orange Former Guy supporters given their perpetual levels of anger.

Bob wasn't saying who the Republican leaders should be. He was saying who they would be if there was any integrity and respect for the Constitution (other than a blind adherence to an absolute version of the Second Amendment) left in the Republican party.

Yes, I am sure that you two have the best interests and respect for the constitution at heart. it is just a complete accident s that the your ideal Republican leaders basically coincide with your world views.

Speaking of the constitution-IIRC-it seems to me that Bob#s is not exactly filled with respect for the Electoral College.

So you will have to pardon my laughter, while you guys perform your umpteenth Circle Jerk regarding "Integrity and respect for the constitution."

You must have missed the shenanigans that Trump and company tried to pull to game the Electoral College.

And this isn't somebody on a bulletin board saying the Electoral College should be abolished. This was the President of the United States and some of his closest advisors hatching a scheme to subvert the Electoral College.

And as I said before-I am sure it is a complete accident that Bob#'s ideal Republican leadership just happens to basically share his worldview.

Plus, I think we can all agree here that Bob#s is not exactly known for his reverence for the founder's original intent as per the constitution.

I may be mistaken, but about the only views that Bob shares with Liz Cheney are about the criminality of the former President and others associated with the January 6 insurrection. Before this, Cheney had a near perfect record with conservatives. She supported Donald Trump's position 93% of the time during his term of office (that was even more than Mark Meadows).

Claiming that Cheney is somehow a RINO or closet Democrat in essence makes the entire party platform secondary to support for Donald Trump.

This is a fun game-I like it. If the Democrats had any integrity and respect for the Constitution-Tulsi Gabbard would be a major TPTB within the party.

OK, here's another:
If the Democrats had any integrity and respect for the Constitution they would put together an amendment to the Constitution to make changes to or repeal the 2nd Amendment which would allow them to make their common sense national gun laws. Which would never get ratified, or even if it did, not have any effect on the gun violence we are experiencing, IMO.

For an illuminating example of what the GOP could become, look at what's going on in Israel now. Likud, once the dominant right-wing party, is fixated on putting Bibi back in power (and keeping him out of jail). So every party that doesn't share that obsession, from right-wing settlers to centrists to socialists and even an Islamist party, formed a coalition that lasted a year.
