A couple of days ago, freshman Texas Representative Dan Crenshaw was the headliner at a Turning Point USA event at Arizona State University. It was billed as “Representative Dan Crenshaw vs. Socialism.”

Let it be noted that there are a lot of folks, particularly Vichy Republicans, who claim that TPUSA is just a grift run by Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens, but if it is a grift, it is at least a grift that is attacking the left and not bashing people on the right for not being sufficiently pure.
After some discussion, it was time for questions. And the inevitable happened.
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:

If you didn’t catch this, this is Crenshaw’s take:

That’s pretty awesome.
I have to admit to being a little skeptical of Dan Crenshaw when he was running for office and was elected. He gave off, in my view, that Martha McSally/John McCain vibe that said he would spend more time showing he was thinking the right thoughts and not one of those knuckle-dragging conservatives who doesn’t read The Bulwark than he would worrying about Democrats. I’m happy to say I’ve been wrong. He’s been fearless in dealing with scum like Ilhan Omar. He’s been outspoken on conservative values. I hope he hangs around and doesn’t go native Washingtonian on us because the GOP and the nation can use a man like him.
