WATCH: Rep. Dan Crenshaw Heckled During GOP Texas Convention: ‘Globalist RINO’
Representative Dan Crenshaw, a Republican from Texas, was confronted by a group of protesters at the Texas Republican convention on Saturday who yelled at him, followed him and appeared to clash with staff.
In a video shared on Twitter by Alex Stein, Stein can be heard yelling “eye patch McCain” at the lawmaker and calling him a “globalist RINO.” Others can be seen following and yelling at Crenshaw as he walks through a hall at the convention.
Last month, Fox News host Tucker Carlson called Crenshaw “eye patch McCain” while he was criticizing the congressman over his support of funding for Ukraine amid Russia’s ongoing invasion.
Crenshaw is a former Navy SEAL who lost an eye while fighting in Afghanistan.
In another video shared to Twitter from the Republican convention, user Alex Rosen asked the congressman about funding for Ukraine and red flag laws.
Crenshaw has said he doesn’t support red flag laws, but in the wake of last month’s mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, he said he would support expanding background checks for gun sales for those who are between 18 and 21 years old to include their “juvenile history.”
Responding to the incident on Twitter, Crenshaw retweeted a Mediaite story about the protesters and wrote: “This is what happens when angry little boys like @alexstein99 don’t grow up and can’t get girlfriends…”
