Dan Crenshaw Rips Congressman Hank Johnson For His VILE Insults Against Trump Supporters!
Since seemingly the beginning of time, people have always wanted to compare something they don’t like to the worst thing that they can think of.
You see it in just about every aspect of society.
Shoot, a few years ago I was standing in line at one of the big box stores on Black Friday to buy something and the wait in the line for the register was maybe fifteen or twenty minutes. Seems like a long time but when there was about a hundred people in the line you can understand it was a feat of engineering to get people moving that fast.
Anyway, I am standing there waiting to pay for the e-reader that I was buying for myself and this guy answers a call from what sounded like his wife and his response was something akin to “yes dear, I will make sure and do that as soon as I get out of this death march.”
You know, a line that was fifteen minutes on a day that you knew was going to be notorious for long lines…but I digress.
The point is that in every walk of life this happens, especially politics. It seems to be the go to insult for liberals is to say that something is like the way that the Nazis did it or referring to people as Hitler. When if they read one portion of a book on Hitler or watched one documentary they would know that the things that he did are more vile than anyone could ever think of today. It’s still scary to think something like that happened in our recent history.
Yet, liberals throw that insult at President Trump. They throw it at us, and it isn’t the only insult that they throw…
Republican Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw excoriated Democratic Rep. Hank Johnson of Georgia on Sunday for degrading the Americans who voted for and support President Donald Trump.
While giving a keynote address to the Atlanta NAACP on Jan. 1, Johnson repeatedly compared Trump to Adolf Hitler and painted Trump supporters as “older, less educated, less prosperous” and “dying early.” He further claimed that many are dying from “alcoholism, drug overdoses, liver disease or simply a broken heart caused by economic despair.”
Crenshaw dismissed Johnson’s Hitler comparisons as intellectually dishonest and insulting to the millions of Jews who perished during the Holocaust.
“Ok Mr. Johnson, President Trump is a lot of things but he’s not Hitler,” Crenshaw said in a video posted on social media. “He didn’t kill millions of people. He didn’t start a world war. He doesn’t have any concentration camps.”
“But if you want to insult President Trump, at least you’re picking on somebody your own size. At least you’re picking on somebody who can fight back,” Crenshaw continued. “But you went on to insult, degrade and demean tens of millions of Americans who voted for him. To call them drug addicted, uneducated and unhappy alcoholics — this is a cowardly form of politics.”
The Texas congressman vowed that despite disagreeing with Johnson’s political ideology, he would never insult the Americans who voted for him or members of his party. He further noted that referring to dissenters as “deplorables or fools or the dregs of society” is the worst form of leadership.
“These people are exercising their right and their voice the only way they can, which is through their vote. They don’t have a TV show. They don’t have a radio show. They don’t have a weekly column or big social media following,” Crenshaw said. “They have a vote. And you use your public platform to insult and demean them. This is not the behavior we expect from a member of Congress.”
