Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) showed his true colors once again this week when he defended Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), who is widely regarded as one of the biggest RINOs in Congress, while blasting the House Freedom Caucus.
“There are two types of members of Congress, there is performance artists and there is legislators,” Crenshaw said while speaking at a campaign event in Texas. “Performance artists are the ones who get all of the attention, the ones you think are more conservative because they know how to say slogans real well. They know how to recite the lines that they know our voters want to hear.”
Though Kinzinger is one of the Republicans who voted in favor of impeaching Donald Trump earlier this year, Crenshaw bizarrely argued that the Illinois representative voted with the former president while the House Freedom Caucus opposed Trump’s agenda in the legislature.
“What you hear so often is not true. It’s not true,” Crenshaw continued. “We have grifters in our midst…I mean in the conservative movement. Lie after lie after lie because they know something psychologically about the conservative heart. We’re worried about what people are doing to do to us, what people are going to infringe upon us, that’s the nature of conservatism.”

Earlier this year, Crenshaw slammed Republicans who he felt supported or defended the January 6 incident at the Capitol. “All of the members who called for everyone to come and fight and make their last stand, all of those members were scattered like cowards while the Capitol Police had to do the fighting,” Crenshaw said earlier this year, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Earlier this week, Crenshaw attempted to debunk what he described as false information being spread about the Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act, which would allocate funds to improve existing immunization information systems in most states. House candidate Harriet Hageman, who is challenging Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) for her seat, claimed last week that the bill represents a “massive intrusion into most basic personal privacy.”
“This is straight out of George Orwell, and the fact that Liz Cheney thinks the federal government has the right to know your personal medical information to help Joe Biden enforce his unconstitutional mandates shows you that she has lost her mind,” Hageman said.
Crenshaw fired back by saying, “Every Republican up here…knows that that particular bill, which was Republican-led, actually makes it harder to track vaccine information on the individual level. It actually decreases the amount of money that originally allocated for these systems by the Biden administration.”
