Don’t fall for it. Crenshaw is compromised, a Deep State plant.
- The Washington Post (WaPo)—a left-leaning news media outlet owned by Amazon’s globalist Jeff Bezos—calls Trump a “fascist,” a “racist demagogue,” says that comparing Trump to Hitler “belittles Hitler,” and that it’s “not wrong to compare Trump’s America to the Holocaust.”
- But this week, WaPo published an article titled “What if Republicans had a party and Trump wasn’t there?” that celebrates Texas Representative Dan Crenshaw’s (R) rise to fame because it signals the possibility of a future Republican Party without Donald Trump. In other words, WaPo sees Crenshaw as an ally in its war against Trumpism (also see #6).
Reason #1: Dan Crenshaw is promoted by leftist media
- In the article, WaPo never once refers to Crenshaw as a fascist, racist, demagogue, Hitler Doppelganger, or anything of the sort. On the contrary, WaPo describes how Crenshaw’s “adoring fans” were “trying not to shake” when Crenshaw finally appeared “striding through the (conference) ballroom to take photos.”
- WaPo celebrates how Crenshaw touts “a million Twitter followers,” his being “described by his fans as an antidote to ‘the Squad’ — the conclave of young liberals putatively led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.),” and as “someone who makes politics relatable and understandable to a next generation of potential voters.”
- Read how WaPo gushes over Crenshaw—though he’s a Republican—referring to him as a “war hero” and a “comic book supersoldier”: “But it’s not just his Twitter game that gets people excited,” writes WaPo. “Crenshaw is revered as a war hero, a Navy SEAL who lost his right eye to an improvised explosive device during his third deployment to Afghanistan. The eye patch Crenshaw now wears only enhances the idea that he’s a comic book supersoldier, almost like the ‘Rambo Trump’ meme come to life.”
- WaPo flatters Crenshaw while describing a video played at the conference showing “Crenshaw escaping from antifa kidnappers and parachuting to the roof of the Hilton hotel, before rappelling down from the rafters and appearing onstage in camo pants and a tight black shirt.”
- “The merchandise store didn’t feature mugs of Crenshaw with sunglasses,” writes WaPo, “but it did feature mugs of him with a Texas-flag eye patch and shirts featuring the congressman decked out in full combat fatigues, clutching a gun and smoking a cigar.”
- And even though WaPo points out that Crenshaw held the conference “despite the delta surge” and points out that Crenshaw is against vaccinating young people (things that usually trigger the Covid-19 alarmist, leftist media), WaPo doesn’t critique Crenshaw for holding these positions. Rather, they finish the piece writing, “By Monday morning the kids had left, taking with them all they had taken in at the conference: talking points, punchlines, long-distance friendships and a reinforced understanding of their role in the fight for America’s future.”
- WaPo didn’t punch back in the piece when Crenshaw said, “I follow the science (about vaccines), unlike everybody else, when it comes to covid fear porn.” The news org didn’t even call him an “anti-vaxxer“!
- This Politico—another left-leaning outlet—article does essentially the same thing.
Reason #2: Dan Crenshaw is financed by BlackRock’s Portfolio
- BlackRock is proof Globalism exists. It is “the biggest investment management company across the globe.” BlackRock owns $10 trillion in assets, more than the GDP of every country in the world respectively (besides the U.S. and China). BlackRock owns portions of every major company in every major sector, holding shares in Amazon, Apple, Twitter, Walmart, CVS Health, UnitedHealth Group, Berkshire Hathaway, BP, Goldman Sachs, Microsoft, Facebook, Alphabet, Tesla, Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Allstate, HP, eBay, Ford, Blackstone, Nvidia, JP Morgan Chase, Visa, PayPal, Home Depot, Disney, Intel, Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, Pepsi, Coca Cola, Merck, Netflix, Chevron, Costco, McDonald’s, and thousands more.
- BlackRock just made a $1 billion investment with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
- BlackRock is partnered with The World Economic Forum (WEF), a consortium of world leaders bent on eliminating free-market capitalism, consolidating world power under their control, and creating a future in which “You’ll own nothing. And you’ll be happy.” BlackRock’s Chief Executive, Larry Fink, joined the WEF Board of Trustees in 2019 (also here).
- Rep. Crenshaw’s public campaign finance records reveal his main financiers include Huntsman Corp. and Cheniere Energy, both owned by BlackRock. Crenshaw is also backed financially by Enterprise Products Partners, Valero Energy, Chevron Corp., and Exxon Mobil, all owned by BlackRock.
Reason #3: Dan Crenshaw backs “climate change” ideology
- The Houston Chronicle reported how Crenshaw insists that conservatives “can’t ignore” climate change.
- “We can make fun of the left’s sort of alarmist views on climate change — and we should, to an extent — but we can’t ignore it completely,” Crenshaw said during a keynote Q-and-A at the right-leaning Texas Public Policy Foundation’s 2020 policy conference. “From a political standpoint, we cannot ignore it completely.”
- Crenshaw believes there is “some effect on the climate from man-made emissions, and we can admit that,” and emplores we must “err on the side of caution.”
- Note that climate change ideology is promoted by BlackRock’s “restart” and the WEF’s “Great Reset” globalist strategies.
Reason #4: Dan Crenshaw was on The World Economic Forum’s “Young Global Leaders for the Class of 2019”
- Forbes referred to the WEF’s Great Reset agenda as “another example of wealthy, powerful elites salving their consciences with faux efforts to help the masses, and in the process make themselves even wealthier and more powerful.”
- WEF founder Klaus Schwab argues that governments—like the U.S. government—are no longer “the overwhelmingly dominant actors on the world stage” and that “the time has come for a new stakeholder paradigm of international governance.”
- The WEF’s vision “includes a ‘public-private’ UN, in which certain specialized agencies would operate under joint State and non-State governance systems.”
- In 2019, Crenshaw was a member of the WEF’s “127 Young Global Leaders” along with Democrat Mayor Peter Buttigieg.
Reason #5: Dan Crenshaw is pro-war
- Pro-war Republicans are referred to as “neocons,” proponents of “neoconservatism.” Crenshaw is a neocon.
- Crenshaw recently posted a YouTube podcast titled “The ‘No More Endless Wars’ Crowd Got Exactly What They Asked For” in which he criticized Americans who want to “bring the troops home,” even though after 20 years of occupying Afghanistan terrorist organizations are stronger than they were before the U.S. invaded the country.
- The Houston Chronicle also reported how Crenshaw opposed President Trump’s troop withdrawal plan in Afghanistan.
- In the same article, U.S. Rep. Justin Amash—former Republican turned Libertarian—said that Crenshaw is “really saying…that he wants perpetual war for just-in-case reasons.”
Reason #6: Dan Crenshaw is in bed with the military-industrial complex
- Crenshaw is directly financed by entities in the defense sector while he advocates for war.
- Moreover, major weapons manufacturers such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, and Raytheon are owned by BlackRock, the financial asset management company that owns the companies that donate to Crenshaw (see #2).
- This represents a conflict of interest because Crenshaw’s promotion of war (see #5) directly benefits the military-industrial complex. This benefits Crenshaw first directly because defense industry entities contribute financially to Crenshaw, but second indirectly because weapons manufacturers’ profits trickle up to their shareholders, namely, BlackRock, who owns companies in other industries that finance Crenshaw’s campaign (see #2).
Reason #7: Dan Crenshaw is anti-Trump
- The same WaPo article describes “the eyepatch-wearing Navy SEAL turned congressman (Crenshaw)” as someone who “could be the future of a Republican Party” and who “remains (in theory) undecided about whether to move on to its next leaders or reboot the Trump Show.”
- WaPo describes Crenshaw as “a Republican who refuses to be completely loyal to the party’s loyalty-obsessed leader (Trump).”
- At Crenshaw’s conference, “[Trump’s] name was hardly mentioned,” notes WaPo.
- “They want to make the party all about Donald Trump,” Crenshaw said at the conference. “This summit is a reminder of what conservatism is, because it’s not anti- or pro-anyone.”
- Politico refers to the conference saying, “the clear intent from the organizers was to turn a cult of Trump into a cult of Crenshaw.”
- Crenshaw also sided with Rep. Liz Cheney‘s mission to impeach President Donald Trump.
Reason #8: Dan Crenshaw doesn’t believe the 2020 Presidential Election was fraudulent and defends Biden’s “win”
- The same WaPo article mentioned in #1 of this article celebrates how “when 147 Republican members of Congress later voted against certifying Biden’s win, Crenshaw was not one of them.”
- The article also celebrates how “Recently, the Texas congressman told a fundraiser audience to not ‘kid yourself’ into thinking that election fraud was the reason Trump lost the election.”
- National File reported how Crenshaw said that Biden’s apparent win is “just something you’ve got to accept. Is there a lot of voter fraud? Yeah, there probably is. Enough that Trump won? Absolutely not.”
Reason #9: Dan Crenshaw says Jesus Christ is a mythological character
- National File also reported how video footage shows Crenshaw appearing to suggest that Jesus Christ, like DC comics’ Superman, is a fictional “superhero archetype,” unlike “real characters” such as Rosa Parks and former President Ronald Reagan.
- “The important thing is that we have societal hero archetypes that we look up to. Jesus is a hero archetype, Superman is a hero archetype. Real characters too, you know, I put, I could name a thousand,” Crenshaw said. “You know, know Rosa Parks, Ronald Reagan, all of these people embody certain attributes that the American people think ‘This is good.'”
