Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, June 18, 2022

Rep. Dan Crenshaw and his staff were violently confronted at the Republican Party of Texas convention a short time ago, when far-right social media activist Alex Stein and others whom witnesses described as Proud Boys began shouting "eyepatch McCain" at him -- an attempted insult coined by Fox News Channel's Tucker Carlson.

"In response to the video gaining traction on Twitter, Crenshaw clapped back to Stein and others on Twitter:

"This is what happens when angry little boys like @alexstein99 don't grow up and can't get girlfriends ... " Crenshaw wrote."

I just hate to see all this violent infighting on the Right!

This UnCivil War.

Punks like Stein attacking a Navy SEAL is, however, reflective of all the other very stupid things they seem to think are smart.

R's attack R veteran.... so much for love of the military and veterans. These hateful morons can just make up ignorant reasons to be violent. No ideas, no solution, just violence. Might makes right. Dumb.

"shouting "eyepatch McCain""

I'm sure Tucker will disavow any and all responsibility.

Before this whole MAGAt era ends, they are going to turn completely against the police, the military, and actual conservative Republicans. The devoted MAGAt is a violent revolutionary loyal to nothing but their cult and its leader.
They don't want law and order, they want power and nothing else.

The Texas Repub party set up quite a platform at their little love fest, ending with reestablishing Texas as an independent country. I'm all for it and the sooner the better. Have fun maintaining your electrical grid, the border and trading goods with Mexico! Oh, and don't let the door hit you fools in the ass on the way to independence! What a blessing.

Crenshaw has hardly been a RINO, either. Good lord, the purity test that these wackos have should tell you all you need to know about today's "conservatives."

He's a grifter. His congressional trading performance is leagues above most reps and senators.

Who will Tucker Carlson hurt or kill next with his rhetoric?

It's what they apparently want.

They seem to think that guns can solve all their problems.

First. They do not actually believe in America and it's creed, that all men are created equal. Second they do not believe in democracy.

And finally they have forgot to all the lessons the civil war taught them and they are willing to do it all over again.

Because reconstruction taught them they can always get around the laws foisted upon them by a weak federal government. And Trumpy being the expert at finding those "loopholes" is showing them the Way.

And they are happily following him right back to into hell.

We ought to rebrand Tuckums Clansman to Nutless Pence, and accuse him of being so concerned about other men's --------- because he has none of his own. Maybe get him roughed by the most breathing MAGAts by accusing him of what so many other men in the GQP are, actual groomers like Gaetz, Hastert, Foley, and Jordan, or child pornographers, there a bunch of these disgusting pigs like Verastigui. And Margie Trailer Grease is so obsessed with calling others, even those in her own party groomers, while travelling with Gaetz that she has to have some very dark skeletons in her closet. Is she the Maxwell to Gaetz' Epstein? I'm just asking questions.

If you've slipped so far to the right that extreme right Dan Crenshaw looks like a RINO to you then you've lost all touch with reality and have been absorbed by your hate.

This guy sounds more like a Democrat than a right winger:

Ted Cruz gets heckled and harassed by a right winger at TX State GOP Convention, who calls him a coward and a globalist, asks him how he can like Trump after he called his wife ugly, then finished with Cancun.

The empty wood barrel makes the loudest noise. There is nothing there but the martyrdom theatrics that stems from religious thinking. Poor hateful ignorant morons that want us all to burn. I guess I should be a partiot like them and hate my fellow Americans for some inane reason.

They aren't all that much different than Torquemada of Inquisition notoriety. If they had their way, we'd be living in a theocracy where they'd still be burning people at the stake, breaking bones on the rack, and all the other murderous/torturous horrors Christianity has used over the centuries and justified in the name of God, whose son they claim to follow, but who taught the opposite.

"Freedom of Speech isn't the same thing as freedom from consequences."

Trumpy and Supreme Court justices are the only Americans I know who are free of all consequences for their speech and behavior.

Also ... back on topic ... Republicans used to respect wounded vets.

Wonder what happened??

Oh yeah. Trumpy happened.

So much for ethics and morals and the Party of Personal Responsibility.

Lies only work if the whole cult tells them. Which is why your cult hates those that wont tell them so much.

"C'mon, if you don't get the metaphor of a child abuser carrying a shotgun and storming a house while comparing other republicans to some in-season game, you must be lying. Our base is bored with the standard stuff, so we're using a lot of complex metaphors. It's heady stuff."
- Greiten's campaign manager

Greteins has come a long way. He used to just tie up women (who weren't "into" it) with duct tape in his basement.

Now he's insinuating murdering political opponents is cool.

The Party of Jesus strikes again.

MAGAts gonna MAGAt.
