Dan Crenshaw & Staff Assaulted by Right Wingers Shouting 'Eyepatch McCain'

Source: Mediate

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.

A witness to the incident tells Mediaite that in addition to Stein and others being escorted out of the building, some arrests were made at the scene.

“They got physical with multiple people, including hitting them with cameras,” a witness at the scene said. “His campaign manager was assaulted by being pushed aggressively into a pillar.”

You can see that part in the video above, which was shared by Stein and his blog. That version included a clip from Tucker Carlson’s show, in which the host refers to Crenshaw as “Eyepatch McCain” while speaking with Democrat Tulsi Gabbard.

1. That is what happens when you feed and

Nurture a monster. The monster grows and turns on you. No pity for Crenshaw et al

23. You are right.

These fascist Frankensteins are their creations which threaten the lives and well-being of all of us. They are an existential menace.

2. With Friends Like Them....

Got to hand it to these repubs who stay LOYAL, even as they're being called names by their OWN PARTY!

Well, if being threatened with Hanging won't change Pence's loyalty, being called names won't change Crenshaw one bit.

3. The GOP base requires 100% loyalty on all of the latest right-wing narratives and talking points.

However, I think this crap is the GOP achilleas heal. Not sure the Democrats have the marketing and consultant staff to take advantage of it.

7. GOP is the party of crazy extremists

so their supporters are crazy and extreme. Good luck with that. Way too many of them are getting pro-Russia talking points fed to them through social media and that motherTucker on Fox News.

They can eat their own if they want. Not the best plan for them during an election year but it might be good for us.

14. And getting more violent. How long before they seriously injure someone?

Or actually murder someone? I’m not sure what that terrorist group that planned to attack the gay pride gathering in Idaho intended to do, but it could not have been anything good. After that crazy Texas pastor claimed that the Bible orders all gay people lined up and executed, it’s anyone’s guess what they might have done.

21. And a Democratic mayor in Kentucky was punched by some right wing thug.

https://www.cnn.com/2022/06/19/us/louisville-kentucky-mayor-punched/index.html

More of stuff like this and perhaps escalation may be the plan. We need to be prepared.


I'll say it again; there is no talk or reasoning with these fascist animals. They simply need to be stopped.

15. The cons

snuggled next to the racists and kooks for decades now, supported that Tea Party sham, excused every escalation and now find themselves with something they can't control.
