Rep. Crenshaw’s Former Opponent Insults His Eye Lost In War

After Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) called out failed presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for making false claims on Twitter, failed congressional candidate Democrat Elisa Cardnell insulted Crenshaw while referencing the eye he lost fighting for his country.

Cardnell launched a very unsuccessful bid for Rep. Crenshaw’s House seat in 2020, coming nowhere near winning the Democrat primary for the district. Cardnell likely felt a sense of comradery and loyalty to Warren, as they both lost their respective elections so dramatically, causing her to insult the war hero who won his election overwhelmingly.

“The reason you can’t see the objective truth isn’t because of your eyes; its because how far you have your nose up your Dear Leader’s a$$,” Cardnell tweeted.
“Actually it’s just ‘eye,’ singular,” Crenshaw replied.

Crenshaw lost his right eye a decade ago in an explosion in Afghanistan during his third deployment. His left eye was also severely damaged and required surgery and began having problems again earlier this year.

“People are, like, ‘well, he definitely lost one eye but at least he has the other one.’ That’s actually never been true. I’ve always had a really badly damaged one eye,” Crenshaw said. “Back in January, I had some flashes off to the corner of my vision. Imagine looking at a screen too long and maybe some distortions associated with that … that blinking, that’s sort of what I saw.”

“I was really confronted with permanent blindness this time because a retinal detachment is very, very dangerous,” Crenshaw added.

Describing his current vision, Crenshaw said, “Wear a dive mask, put some bubble bath in it and rub the lenses with Vaseline and that’s sort of what I see.”
Crenshaw also added that the tragedies he endured were something to be expected when signing up to protect American lives. He said, “Is something hard, yes? Is it hard compared to what? In compared to who? What they had to deal with? You know, that should stiffen your spine sometimes.”

    The Left is coming unhinged as a result of Marxist propaganda, and their disruptive policies by Joe Biden and the his backers in State and Federal Governments.

    Vision isn’t needed if just listen to their messages filled with hate and denegrations of the American People.

    Tides lifts all boats, and the Republicans, led by President Trumps vision, is a beacon we not only see, but feel.

    How insensitive, but as vulgar and malicious as one expects from the young Democrats. Where did they learn to be so mean, spiteful, and vicious. What training program do they attend, certainly not their parents or ,gasp, church.

    And the Democratic Party and their candidates continue their onslaught on the Unborn so far to the tune of 64 Million. Now they are promoting sexual promiscuity for Kindergarteners similar to the Children Of Moab of teaching them molestation of themselves and other children. And you wonder how it was so easy for them to commit voter fraud. They worship at the alter of Satan. Lest you forget Obama was mentored by Saul Alinsky a satanic socialist who also called himself a community organizer. By the way, it was known that Obama was bisexual.
