Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) appeared at the Arizona State University (ASU) campus on Friday where a raucous audience challenged Crenshaw on many of his stances.
Crenshaw began to get chippy with attendees when individuals felt that questions were being cherry-picked, as they were during a recent Ben Shapiro speech at Stanford University. This is when Crenshaw started showing his contempt toward the students on campus who had the audacity to push back against the legislator.
“You know what’s funny about you guys?” Crenshaw said as he refused a question from the audience. “You operate exactly like the far-left. You push, and you push, and when somebody says ‘uhh, you’re not part of us,’ you get triggered. You claim victimhood. You engage in victim identity politics. It’s pathetic.”
Crenshaw then lectured the audience with a rant against freedom of speech in the public square.
“Being here does not give you a right to ask a question. Again, what’s the difference between you and the far-left? The far-left likes to talk about how they… how government and people can create rights for them. You are doing the exact same thing,” Crenshaw said.
As the crowd continued to turn on him, Crenshaw became more livid that his authority was being challenged. He then called out audience members wearing “Make America Great Again” hats to the event, accusing them of being hatemongers without evidence.
“This is the alt right 2.0 because the alt right has been discredited so what they do is they try to cloak themselves in some sort of logical nationalism, some kind of MAGA-hat-wearing ‘America First’ type rhetoric which a lot of conservatives agree with, and then they use that to cloak their anti-Semitic leanings and their racist leanings, and it’s pretty gross,” Crenshaw said.
When the ‘America First’ contigent of the audience professed their support of Israel and disagreed with Crenshaw’s “Basket of Deplorables”-style denunciation of their motives, that is when Crenshaw invoked the specter of Orwellian surveillance against them.
“Now we’re going to have a little “Come to Jesus” moment,” Crenshaw said. “You don’t have the luxury of the time that I grew up in where nothing was online, and we weren’t tweeting, and we weren’t on Facebook, and things like this weren’t being filmed.”
“You guys live in that reality, and you’re young, and you’re not that experienced right now, and you’re very upset and emotional. You should know you’re going to regret this. You’re going to regret being on camera saying some of the things that you’re saying,” he said in a direct threat meant to quell the freedom of expression of the questioners.

Crenshaw kept refusing to answer questions and was eventually forced to end his “Prove Me Wrong” event early, being unable to control the discussion that was taking place.
The new line of attack from the establishment Right appears to be the re-appropriation of Hillary Clinton-style talking points that malign “America First” supporters as racists without evidence. Shapiro, who has led the “Never Trump” movement since 2015, signaled to others within Conservative Inc. to message themselves in this manner.
Ben Shapiro calling them New Right, the Alt Right, which has gone to war in more and deeper way than than his faction of Libertarianism is dishonest trickery. Shame on him.

Shapiro and Crenshaw are leading conservatives to capitulate on key issues, particularly on mass immigration. Both men have betrayed their past positions on the issue, which can be seen in how drastically their rhetoric has changed in recent years.

Congressman Dan Crenshaw is a hypocrite.
In 2018 he said, "In 50 years we may not have a Republican party because our demographics are changing."
Yet, when questioned by a young conservative, he changes his tune: "Identity politics has no place in this movement."

Crenshaw, who has publicly supported unconstitutional red flag laws in the past, is apparently as weak on the 1st and 4th Amendments as he is on the 2nd.
Josh Hawley Introduces Resolution Against China’s New National Security Law to Punish Hong Kong
Hawley is focusing intently on the red menace.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) introduced a resolution on Thursday to oppose China’s new national security law meant to punish Hong Kong and quash their ongoing rebellion against the totalitarian communist state.
— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) May 21, 2020
Hawley has long been an advocate of Hong Kong freedom protesters throughout their struggle against Chinese tyranny, which has been sidelined in large part due to the ever-so-convenient Wuhan virus outbreak. Hawley visited Hong Kong last year to talk to the people on the ground and gave a rousing floor speech highlighting their historic struggle.
He said during his speech: “I want to share something that the reverend Chu Yiu-ming said about liberty about democracy. He says it so beautifully. These are his words: “We strive for democracy because democracy strives for freedom and equality and universal love. Political freedom is more than loyalty to a state. Political freedom professes human dignity. Every single person living in a community possesses unique potentials and unique powers capable of making a unique contribution to society.”’
“That’s extraordinary and he’s exactly right, and Hongkonger’s know it, and that’s what they’re standing for, and that’s what they’re fighting for,” Hawley added. “And, Mr. President, the people of Hong Kong deserve our support, and they are depending on our support.”
China announced yesterday that they were passing a edict meant to crush dissent in Hong Kong, with no input allowed from the city itself. China has paid lip service regarding Hong Kong’s autonomy for decades, but they are now removing the facade completely.
“Beijing has opted for the most risky route,” said Ho-Fung Hung, who works as a professor of international relations for Johns Hopkins University. “It will show the world that ‘one country, two systems’ is, if not already over, almost over.”
“It will be very difficult for anyone, especially the United States, to say Hong Kong is still autonomous and viable,” Hung added.
China is denying that they are taking control over Hong Kong and putting out communist propaganda that their Draconian power-grab will actually improve relations.
“We will ensure the long-term stability of ‘one country, two systems,’ ” said Wang Yang, leader of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, which convenes every year to advise the Chinese government.
“We will continue to support the improvement of the implementation of the systems and mechanisms of the constitution and Basic Law,” he added.
It is unlikely that anyone is willing to believe the Chinese lip service at this point. Hawley is also calling on the globalist United Nations to pass a resolution condemning China’s behavior as well.
