Neoconservative House Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) is having a rough time on social media, continuously getting humiliated in the mentions by the pro-Trump women he routinely picks fights with on Twitter. Despite amassing over one million followers, Crenshaw’s comebacks often fall flat in front of the intended digital audience.
Crenshaw’s habit of haranguing women on social media started in 2019, when he sent a lengthy direct message to Second Amendment activist Kaitlin Bennett after becoming uncomfortable with criticism over his support for Red Flag laws.
Since then, the sitting congressman and Bennett have continued to jabs at one another, most recently in October when Bennett criticized Crenshaw for failing to take a strong stance for President Donald Trump following the Nov. 3 election.
A totally ignorant comment from you. As usual. Read twitter, the news, anything.

Crenshaw quickly appeared in Bennett’s comments to insult her, but was quickly rebuffed in subsequent replies.
Okay you smug ass, how about we read this then? pic.twitter.com/pAjAiZDF2I

You were the only speaker at the RNC to not even mention Trumps name. A total Never Trump hack who grifted for votes and popularity

Following the humliation incurred during his spat with Bennett, Crenshaw decided to rant at other different conservative women on Twitter.
On Wednesday, Crenshaw took issue with a tweet from The Gateway Pundit’s Cassandra Fairbanks in which she told him to “shut the f**k up neocon” following his hand-wringing over Middle East troop withdrawals.
Lol what tough talk from someone too afraid to do what is necessary to protect America’s flank from our enemies. Not a single coherent argument made, just insults and anger. The sign of shallow thinking.

Crenshaw’s reply was ratioed almost immediately, accumulating more replies than likes.
Many users took issue with the fact that Crenshaw spread fear about the dangers of terrorism in the middle East, while simultaneously refusing to address left-wing mob violence against taxpaying citizens within the United States’ own borders.
It remains to be seen if Crenshaw will stick to this strange strategy of instigating Twitter fights with women on the internet, in lieu of performing his congressional duties as a public servant.
