While many in the media were pushing Trump supporters to believe that January 6th was the day to fight or surrender, Crenshaw pointed out that Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley did not do that.
“Sen. Cruz and Hawley, I disagree with them in a fundamental way about the constitutionality of this process on January 6, the ability of Congress to overturn any electoral votes, period,” said Crenshaw. “But, let’s be very honest, Sen. Cruz and Sen. Hawley were not hyping up January 6. They were not calling for people to fight in the streets. They were not saying this was our last stand.”
But then Crenshaw dropped a bombshell. He pointed out that many politicians and conservative outlets did, in fact, push people to fight that day:
That being said, many members of Congress did do that. Many commentators did do that. Many in the media have been doing that, for the last few weeks, constantly, saying, this is our time to fight. And let me tell you something very clearly, they’ve been lying to people. And when people fought, they came to fight, and then they fought Capitol Police, and now people are dead. And those same members of Congress who called people to fight, well, they were nowhere to be found. Because it was all fun and games to them. They never knew what a real fight was. Real fights are scary. Bullets flying, that’s scary. The glass breaking, that’s really scary. They were nowhere to be found. They scattered.
