During an interview last week, Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw told Fox News that the Biden Administration should be “using FEMA resources to bolster testing sites.”

“So what the federal government should be doing,” Crenshaw said, “again, using their FEMA resources to bolster a lot of these testing sites, open up new testing sites. This is what we saw happen during the Trump administration. They should be using our resources to increase those supply chains to get those monoclonal antibodies out to people faster, and President Biden announced this – we just haven’t seen results from it, helping us get more healthcare workers from the military or from FEMA to aid in some of these hospitals that are feeling a little bit overwhelmed.”

In response, conservatives took to the internet to express concern over his comments. Marjorie Taylor Greene, for example, posted on Gab, “No FEMA should not set up testing sites to check for Omicron sneezes, coughs, and runny noses. And we don’t need FEMA in hospitals, they should hire back all the unvaccinated HCW they fired. He needs to stop calling himself conservative, he’s hurting our brand.”

Of course, Greene was referring to the thousands of healthcare workers that have been fired around the nation for failing to comply with vaccine mandates related to COVID-19, leaving our healthcare system overworked and understaffed.

Those faces say it all…

Crenshaw also said during the Fox News interview, “Well, we’d love to be able to give you better news but the reality is Congress has already appropriated tens of billions of dollars to this specific problem, right now it’s a management problem. The executive branch is not executing these dollars in an efficient manner. That’s what’s going on, and again, look. I’m a conservative. I always make sure people know, there is only so much the government can do, and the moment that it starts doing more than it should be doing, you start to see unintended second and third-order consequences that harm everybody worse than you wanted to.”

Red Voice Media spoke with a contender in Texas’ Second Congressional District against Crenshaw, Jameson Ellis, who, needless to say, does not share Crenshaw’s stance that the federal government needs to have more power and responsibility in the response to COVID-19.

“It doesn’t surprise me that Crenshaw believes that FEMA – a government agency – is the answer,” Ellis said. “The problem is, I can’t think of a single thing government has touched that they’ve made better.

“And when I read the Constitution, it’s supposed to place a restriction on the federal government, not on the private citizen. I believe it was the late great Ronald Reagan that once said that the nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’”

Crenshaw lashed out against Greene, posting to social media, “Hey Marjorie, if suggesting we should follow Trump policy instead of Biden mandates makes you mad, then you might be a Democrat – or just an idiot.”

Greene has spoken out against Crenshaw, saying that he doesn’t like the America First movement, or former President Donald Trump, and criticized him for missing multiple voting sessions, some of which could have actually stopped Democrat wins with his vote.

Even when he does vote, conservatives have said, he can’t be counted on to vote with the rest of his party, which is something Ellis has pointed out against the incumbent. “What’s confusing to me is why Crenshaw is suddenly acting as if he cares,” Ellis told RVM. “Where was he on 3/14/20 when he voted for the ‘gag and vote for it’ small-business-killing coronavirus emergency legislation? Or on 12/22/20 when he chose to vote for the so-called COVID relief bill and $1.4 trillion in special interest spending?

“I believe it’s time we put an end to the bureaucracy and vote out these celebrity politicians and who are only interested in voting away our liberty and money.”
