WOW: TEXAS REP. DAN CRENSHAW JOINS DEMS IN VOTE TO REMOVE STATUES

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) voted with House Democrats on legislation to remove Confederate statues from Washington, D.C., and defended the decision on social media by claiming that the Confederacy represents the Democratic Party’s “racist past” and he was happy to help them “confront” such previous wrongdoings.

On Wednesday night, Crenshaw sided with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who recently called for 11 statues of Confederate leaders from the Capitol building. Of the statues, 9 represent individuals who at some point were registered Democrats.

As Just the News notes, “The other two Confederates, Edmund Kirby Smith and Robert E. Lee, did not have a documented political affiliation, according to historical accounts.”

Crenshaw was one of six Republicans to break party lines and join Democrats in voting to remove statues representing American history.

In defense of his vote, Crenshaw asserts that “Republicans won the civil war,” while “Democrats have a long list of segregationists & KKK members. That’s their history.”

“I’m glad to help them confront that racist past & voted to remove these Democrat statues from positions of prominence,” wrote Crenshaw.

“I’m glad to help them confront that racist past & voted to remove these Democrat statues from positions of prominence,” wrote Crenshaw.

Statues Pelosi demands be removed from the Capitol include depictions of Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis, and Alexander Hamilton Stephens.

Last year, Crenshaw signaled to Democrats that he would work with them on red flag laws and other gun control legislation, going as far as to call critics of red flag gun confiscation laws emotional and uninformed.
