Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) has been pretty over the top with the group of anti-McCarthy House members during this Speaker election.
Crenshaw believes they should just fall in line and give the Speaker position to McCarthy even though they have concerns.
He seems to be under the impression that this congressional term is life or death and the GOP is going to change the world.
After he went so far as to call some of his fellow Republicans terrorists, Tucker Carlson decided to call him out.
Dial It Down
To be clear, this is not about having soft skin, as Crenshaw believes.
This is about giving Democrats more ammunition to use against the GOP and help them during their election cycle.
Tucker Carlson stated, “Dan Crenshaw went all the way, as neocons always do, he proceeded to go to CNN to call his political opponents enemies of the state.”
He added, “No matter how you feel, you have to acknowledge, if you’re being honest, that people who don’t like Kevin McCarthy have a reason for that.
“They have real concerns, real issues, but you’ll notice that Dan Crenshaw didn’t address any of those, none of them, instead he impugned their motives, their character, their intelligence, their moral standards.”
He concluded, “What you just saw as Dan Crenshaw just spoke, what you just saw is the snarling face of the donor class, revealed for all to see finally. The deep loathing of disobedient voters that may be their most passionate secret emotion. They’re not bothering to hide that emotion anymore. Now you know how they really feel.”
This was Crenshaw’s response to the comments by Carlson…
Unclutch your pearls. It’s a figure of speech. You can’t insult, slander, and hold everyone hostage with no way out - and not expect me to punch back.

I am just curious how many times Democrats will use those soundbites by Crenshaw during the 2024 election cycle against the members of this group of resistance.
But, then again, Crenshaw could probably care less, as he made it quite clear these are all to be considered the enemy now, so booting them out of office will probably make him happy.
