Dan Crenshaw: The "Conservative" Obama

Thanks to the time I was deluded enough to believe Obama when he was on the campaign trail saying all the right things, attending events, giving him a max campaign contribution, attending his inauguration on a brisk DC morning only to see him do the opposite once he was in office, I now don't trust politicians when they tell me what I want to hear.  I guess you could say, thanks Obama.

So when Dan Crenshaw popped on the scene and started hitting up the airwaves and SNL and all the darling media and the Joe Rogan podcast, I listened skeptically.  And I got a bad feeling.  He said many of the right things and he had an eloquence.  Not as eloquent as Obama, but fairly close.  But one of the beauties of the long form Rogan podcast is he had enough time to make it clear that he didn't actually hold the values he professed.

So then when he came out in support of government confiscating firearms without due process, that was it for me.  I didn't even have to know he was part of the World Economic Forum to figure out he was a plant.  Despite his military pedigree which my two decades has taught me means absolutely nothing when it comes to caring about our nation, and despite him hailing from Texas which talks a big game but is little more than New York City in a cowboy hat.

People are beginning to wise up to the reality that the same forces own both political parties.  Our tightly controlled media propagandizes Americans like putting on a puppet show.  There is one puppet master with two different puppets on two different hands that seem to fight each other for the amusement of the children.

A better analogy is that of the Bullfighter.  We're the bull.  The Bullfighter shows us a red flag and we charge it and get a blade stuck in us.  We turn around to face again, now the other side of the flag shows us blue and we charge that only to get stuck again.  Rinse and repeat until we are exhausted and die, having never seen the Bullfighter, too blinded by alternating red and blue.

The Bullfighter today is getting its red flag ready, knowing we are exhausted and hurting from staring at the blue and its purposeful destruction of our nation.  Enter Dan Crenshaw and Adam Kinzinger and Lindsey Graham and most all the rest of them.  They stand ready to use words like "country" and "patriotism" and "constitution" to redirect our anger and energy.  But they are more of the same and counting on us to continue, like the dumb bull who never learns, to justify our bad decision making with arguments like the lesser of two evils.

And the Chinese Communist Party and the WEF folks are truly enjoying the show while America is quite literally bleeding out and dying.
