Dan Crenshaw Has Some ‘Fun’ When He Gets Called A Nazi By Protester

It’s no secret that being in the public eye isn’t for the faint of heart, but it can be even more difficult for those in the public eye for political reasons. We all know some sides can be a little more hostile than others, the left seems to be making their mark in the more hostile department lately.

American politician and former United States Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw is no stranger to political jabs. We all saw how public the incident on Saturday Night Live was, and how all that turned out. Since being elected into the Republican PArty for the U.S. Representative for Texas’s 2nd congressional district, Crenshaw has no doubt been through his fair share of attacks.

In fact, just this weekend at and event for Turning Point USA, there was a young protester who suggested Dan Crenshaw was a Nazi. The protester even went as far as to tell everyone including Crenshaw that the former Navy Seal should be “ashamed” of his military service. You can imagine an Ex Navy Seal won’t just let comments like that come without a bit of commentary back. Crenshaw left everyone mistified with his response.

The random teenager said as the crowd booed him: “TPUSA is for Nazis and you should be ashamed of your service in Afghanistan. It was an illegal war of aggression by the United States. You should be ashamed of yourself, not proud of your service.”

Crenshaw responded back by saying: “If you have to call somebody a Nazi, it’s a good indicator that you haven’t thought through your argument very well.”

After being booed by the crowd for his remarks, the teen boy stormed off, and Crenshaw made a few more comments in light of what happened.

Crenshaw went on: “That was fun, at least we had a little bit of…but get more creative with your insults, man. Like Nazi? C’mon.”

TPUSA’s Benny Johnson tweeted a video of the incident, stating: “Imagine volunteering to fight for the military that beat the Nazis. Becoming a Navy SEAL. Serving 10 years. Deploying to war 3 times. Giving your eye & almost your life for your country. Just to return home & get called a ‘Nazi.'”
