U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw urged Americans to listen carefully to what is coming out of the mouths of Democrats.
The Texas Republican warned that there is a lot at stake in November during an appearance on Fox News, adding that there is a “clear choice” for the 2020 presidential election and the difference between the parties “could not be more severe.”

“When you go out, you know, whether it’s to Texas or out and about and talk to regular folks, what do they ask you regarding the election, what it’s all about this time, what people will be deciding upon and what is at stake?” Steve Doocy, co-host of “Fox & Friends” asked Crenshaw Monday.
“I think a lot is at state, OK?” the former United States Navy SEAL replied.
“And my suggestion to the American people is start listening to the Democrats. We have to listen to what they are telling us. They talk about defunding the police, they talk about making excuses for violent mobs,” he added.
“Let’s take them at their word — they want to destroy the things that bring us together, our common bonds, our founding, our love of country. Why do they do that? Whey do they say those things?” he asked. “Because fundamentally they want to dismantle our country and its institutions — that’s not my words, that’s their words — dismantle our economic freedom, our border security, our energy sector, all of it.”
Leftism assumes that the American people cannot be trusted to rise to greatness, and that government must do it for them.
Conservatives believe in the power of each generation of Americans to outdo the last, so long as given the freedom and opportunity to do so.

“Now, I don’t think most Americans want that. I think we want a renewed sense of faith in the country. I think we want to have our kids love our country again. I think we want to restore faith in our police forces, restore safety in our communities, and we want to rebuild our economy,” Crenshaw contended.
“We had the greatest economy that our country has ever known. We want to rebuild that. We want to rebuild our infrastructure along with it,” the GOP congressman continued.
“So we’re seeing a very clear choice in 2020,” he pointed out.
“It’s chaos versus safety and security, it’s socialism and doubling your tax rates versus economic freedom, it’s government takeover of your health care versus keeping the doctor that you trust. It’s acquiescence to China versus holding China accountable.”
“These are important themes and the difference could not be more severe,” he concluded. “This is not President Obama’s Democrat Party, and people need to realize that.”
Crenshaw has been making these points on Twitter as well, tweeting the Fox News video with the comment: “They want a progressive revolution, but must destroy our country’s foundations first. We can’t let them.”
He recently focused tweets on the violence in America’s cities such as Portland, Oregon.
We should not elect leaders who make excuses for this kind of chaos.
It’s weird that I even have to say that. https://t.co/426BW41RUq

The point isn’t that its Biden’s America (it’s happening now). The point is that this is leftism in action. It’s their heinous, violent reaction when they don’t have absolute power.
We can never give this movement power. Voting Democrat does just that: empowers the violent mob. https://t.co/nuJWCq6gVK

In another portion of his interview with “Fox & Friends,” Crenshaw revealed how he has heard “multiple Democrats” in the halls of Congress question “whether antifa even exists.”
“Yes they exist,” the GOP lawmaker said. “You can call them anarcho-fascist communists, whatever they are. In any case they’re basically a domestic terrorist organization.”

New York Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler was seen in a video claiming that violence committed by anarchists in Portland is “a myth that’s being spread only in Washington, D.C.,”
