Dan ‘McCain 2.0’ Crenshaw Attacks Heroic New Jersey Gym Owner Who Defied Lockdowns for Refusing to Support Afghan Refugee Invasion
Rep. Dan “McCain 2.0” Crenshaw (R-TX) attacked Ian Smith, the co-owner of Atilis Gym in New Jersey, for refusing to support the importation of potentially dangerous Afghan refugees into the United States.
Crenshaw has called for the reinvasion of Afghanistan while calling for thousands of unvetted Afghanis to be imported into the U.S. Smith released a tweet exposing how neoconservatives like Crenshaw are cheerleading for this agenda.
This resulted in Crenshaw targeting Smith in an Instagram post, calling the man who bravely stood against lockdown tyranny a “wannabe tough guy” who “never did anything but talk sh*t” for not supporting the CIA deep state agenda.
“Wannabe tough guys that never did anything but talk sh*t and LARP as a patriot. That’s what I see here. Adorable really. But also kinda said,” Crenshaw said.
This caused Smith to take down Crenshaw for his arrogant and contemptuous comment that flies in the face of every man who defied crushing lockdown orders.
“Where were you when Americans liberties and livelihoods were being crushed nonsensical and oppressive COVID restrictions?” Smith asked Crenshaw.
“You were tweeting about blowing more tax payer money on more stimulus packages instead of fixing the problem. We stood our ground at Atilis, just like many other small businesses and Americans did. Were we LARPING? Nah,” he continued.
“We put everything on the line while you sat around getting paid to pretend to be working for the people. Cut the crap with the “wannabe tough guy” lines, nobody is trying to be tough – except you. Keep banging the war drums, advocating for red flag laws, and voting in massive COVID spending bills,” Smith added.

Big League Politics has reported on how Atilis Gym led the resistance against some of the most Draconian lockdowns in the country imposed illegally and unconstitutionally against the people of New Jersey:
“The owners of Atilis Gym are currently going through one of their worst financial ordeals now thanks to the state of New Jersey’s shutdown orders that forced gym facilities to close down.
The two owners, Ian Smith and Frank Trumbetti, have defied the New Jersey government’s shutdown orders. For their decision to not comply with the state’s draconian orders, they have been slapped with $1.2 million in fines.
The gym owners have appeared on Fox News shows such as Tucker Carlson Tonight and voiced their opposition to the draconian lockdown policies. They said that the Governor and his cronies in the state government have “thrown everything he possibly could to shut us down.”
The two have received approximately 60 citations and have been arrested. ZeroHedge reported that “Every single day they open their gym in violation of the state order, the team rack up another 16K in fines.”
“He has arrested my partner and I, given us over 60 citations, some of them criminal. He fines us $15,497.76 per day for every day we’re open,” Smith remarked during an interview. “Our fines are totaling over $1.2 million, but every single day, Frank and I open our gym.“
New Jersey allowed gyms to start reopening on September 1. However, this reopening has certain stipulations where gyms must still comply with state restrictions and capacity limits.
Atilis drew national attention by refusing to comply with the state’s shutdown orders by opening its facility at the end of May, kicking off a legal dispute between the state and gym.
Smith emphasized in his interview that none of New Jersey’s Wuhan virus cases have been connected to his gym. Atilis’s policy allows for members to wear masks when they work out, but it is not mandatory.
New Jersey is living up to its reputation as one of the least free states in the Union. “
Crenshaw truly deserved to be humiliated for carrying on the failed policies of the Bush/Cheney regime. Crenshaw needs to become a pariah in the Republican Party like his predecessor McCain was before he died.
