WATCH: Dan Crenshaw Rips Dems For Being A Political Wing For Rioters
Democrats have become the personal cheerleaders to the rioters in cities all across the country. Texas Rep. (R) Dan Crenshaw called Democrats out on their dangerous politically charged game during an interview with Newsmax TV on Wednesday.
“There is something underlying this antifa movement,” Crenshaw said on “Spicer & Co.” referring to commercial grade fireworks and improvised explosive devices thrown at law enforcement officers and lasers used to blind police. “And I find it very interesting that the Democrats can’t condemn it. They really can’t.
“Why? What’s becoming apparent is the Democratic Party is now the political wing of this movement. There is a political wing. There is a militant wing. But their messaging coincides rather well. It’s basically this: ‘We’ll hold America hostage until you give us power.’”

Cancel culture is generally discussed as being performed on social media in the form of group shaming."]
Crenshaw specifically aimed his attention on bias House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who called federal law enforcement agents assisting the riot-ridden cities "stormtroopers" during a rant on Twitter. Pelosi, per usual, was trying desperately to seem remotely relatable to the younger crowd - aka the rest of America.
“And Pelosi is saying this week, she says ‘This is really only happening because (President Donald) Trump is in power,” Crenshaw added. “’If we were in power, then it would stop happening.’
“And there is nothing stated that would make the stop. Right? That indicates something. That indicates this is about power, and getting their political wing into absolute control and power. And it’s a scary thing.”
Crenshaw was commissioned in the United States Navy, and served on SEAL Team 3 in the War in Afghanistan, reaching the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He was wounded in action during his third deployment, losing his right eye to an improvised explosive device. He served as a legislative assistant to Congressman Pete Sessions, and was elected to Congress in the 2018 midterm election to succeed the retiring Ted Poe.
