Former Navy SEAL Crenshaw, mocked by SNL, gets the last laugh in Texas victory

(National SentinelRed Win: The cretins who star on “Saturday Night Live” mocked Texas GOP congressional candidate and retired U.S. Navy SEAL Lt. Cmdr. Dan Crenshaw over the weekend, but the decorated war vet who lost an eye to a terrorist attack got the last laugh.

Crenshaw defeated Democratic challenger Todd Litton on Tuesday to win Texas’s 2nd Congressional District, even though Dems kept hoping to flip the district blue despite Crenshaw’s double-digit lead.

The Daily Caller reported:

The district has been represented by Republican Rep. Ted Poe who announced his retirement in November 2017. Poe flipped the seat red when he first took office in 2005 and it has since been a GOP stronghold. Litton, a director of an education non-profit, announced his run for the seat prior to Poe’s retirement. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi showed her support for the Democrat by pledging $7,000 to his campaign.




Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL, served five deployments overseas — while on his third combat tour, he was hit by an IED blast during a mission in Afghanistan that destroyed [his] right eye and badly injured his left eye. After multiple surgeries, Crenshaw retained sight in his left eye and went on to deploy two more times, first to the Middle East, then to South Korea.

In other words, he’s a hero. And the cretins on SNL who mocked him are…cretins.

In an interview with The DC, Crenshaw said he hoped to bring back some credibility to the House, which it will need now that Democrats are back in control.

“[Those who serve in the military are] problem solvers,” Crenshaw said. “We care about impact, we care about mission, we care about service before self, and I think Congress can use a little bit of that.”

As to the mocking, Crenshaw took it like a hero would.

“Good rule in life — I try hard not to offend, I try harder not to be offended,” Crenshaw responded on Twitter. “That being said, I hope [“Saturday Night Live”] recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes.”

    That buck-toothed hair-dyed moronic “comedian” should apologize immediately. Making a joke about his injury, the loss of his eye in battle, is not funny. Would never be funny. Does your mother know how creepy so-called your “jokes” are? you mentioned something about Commander Crenshaw looking like a star in a porn movie. Maybe you should pay attention to that herpes on the left of your mouth.

    Years ago before leftist PC, SNL was hilarious entertainment. Dan Aneroid, et al, were true comedians without an ax to grind on camera. Both Dems and Repubs loved the show. Today it’s just hateful snarky crap and half the audience has been alienated. … Not good for the bottom line, but maybe the network maybe is no longer interested in profits.
