FLASHBACK: Dan Crenshaw Called President Trump a ‘Hateful Idiot’ and Celebrated How Society Has ‘Progressed’ Past Biblical Values
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) likes to market himself to the MAGA faithful these days, but when Trump was running for President, he found himself among the ‘Never Trump’ faithful.
In a since-deleted Facebook post, Crenshaw responded to a video about Biblical verses that are deemed harsh by the Left. He used it as an opportunity to bash not only Trump, but also throw Christianity under the bus.
“This video actually shows that western civilization, largely founded on Christian values, has progressed and reformed to be what it is today,” he wrote. “Those violent biblical verses are shocking to modern day Christians because we grew out of that a LONG time ago.”
Crenshaw followed his anti-Christian remark up with a tacit endorsement of gay marriage, criticizing modern Christians who oppose the anti-biblical practice.
“The worst thing modern Christianity currently stands for is anti-homosexual marriage, which is a far cry from sex slaves, sharia law, and beheadings,” Crenshaw wrote.
This is when he launched attacks against Trump because the future president spoke harshly about the importation of Muslims from countries that hate America.
“Trump’s insane rhetoric is hateful, yes. But worse, it takes away from a much more important conversation: the reform of Islam. There are plenty of moderate Muslims who could lead this effort, but they are hindered by America’s divided stance on the issue,” Crenshaw wrote.
“On the one hand you have idiots like Trump, and on the other you have equally ignorant liberals who refuse to acknowledge a problem at all,” Crenshaw added. “The rest of us in the middle are getting sick of it.”

When Crenshaw wrote that post, he never imagined Trump would be elected by the American people the following year. He has since reinvented himself as a Trump supporter, but still works to subvert the President’s “America First” agenda on foreign policy.
Crenshaw has written numerous op/eds in the fake news media pushing for endless wars in the Middle East.
“These troops are not victims. They are volunteer soldiers, part of America’s warrior class, who believe in what they are fighting for. They have seen the true nature of this enemy and know it cannot be wooed into submission by simply leaving it alone,” Crenshaw wrote.
“In truth, mission success in the Middle East means preventing another 9/11. America’s troops risk everything to take the fight to the enemy so that the enemy cannot bring the fight here,” he added.
He also stood with the Democrats to condemn the President’s pull-back of troops in Syria last month. He has also emerged in recent weeks as one of the most hostile individuals denigrating “America First” patriots at campus events throughout the country.
“Now we’re going to have a little “Come to Jesus” moment,” Crenshaw said to questioners at an event last week. “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 added in a threat to those willing to challenge him.
Crenshaw, who has earned the moniker John McCain 2.0, is working diligently to try and hijack the MAGA agenda for his own neoconservative ends.
