- 20.9K Views
Republican representative Dan Crenshaw weighed in on the protests in Portland Oregon involving Antifa, calling it "a sad showing," while noting that they failed to compare to the protestors in Hong Kong.
“In Hong Kong, antifascists wave American flags, demand freedom and actually fight fascists." Crenshaw started.
“In Portland,” he continued, “ ‘antifascists’ burn American flags, demand violence in the name of socialism.”
"In Hong Kong, antifascists wave American flags, demand freedom and actually fight fascists. In Portland, “antifascists” burn American flags, demand violence in the name of socialism. Portland is a sad showing of where we are today. All around. Also yes obviously buy Greenland," he added referring to President Trump's interest in purchasing Greenland.

Check out what Fox News reported:
Crenshaw, 35, is in his first term in the U.S. House after being elected last November. The former U.S. Navy SEAL served in Afghanistan and is the recipient of two Bronze Stars for heroic service and a Purple Heart after being wounded in combat.
On Saturday, demonstrators from both left-wing and right-wing groups converged in Portland, Ore., the scene of numerous violent confrontations in the past.
As of Saturday evening, the city’s mayor was declaring the day’s events “largely peaceful,” with 13 arrests and a small number of minor injuries reported.
Members of the Proud Boys and other conservative groups have argued that Antifa protesters have instigated violence at their events, but have often escaped prosecution because many of their members keep their faces covered during attacks.
In July, the city’s police chief called for new laws against wearing masks during such protests.
“We cannot allow people to continue to use the guise of free speech to commit a crime,” Chief Danielle Outlaw said.
President Trump also weighed in on Antifa: "Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an “ORGANIZATION OF TERROR.” Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!" he said on Saturday.
Crenshaw has been a loud voice when it comes to speaking out against terrorism as well as his support for national security.
Back in July, Crenshaw hammered socialist rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for using our crisis on the southern border as a weapon to slam President Trump instead of coming up with realistic solutions.
"What they really want is more commissions … more investigations they can point to, to call the president evil," he said on “Fox & Friends.” "That's what they want."
