Dan Crenshaw is quickly becoming one of our favorite people. Shortly after the Super Bowl, Dan the man went on the Twitters and took a dig at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s economic beliefs of “fairness” and “equality.”
Here, have a look-see:
Should someone propose a 70% tax on the Patriots so that NFL competition is more fair and equal? Asking for a friend.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez caught wind of Crenshaw’s attack on her philosophy and felt the need to weigh in:
The average NFL salary is $2.1 million, so most players would never experience a 70% rate.
The owners who refuse to hire Kaepernick would, though. https://t.co/AnST2lCiU9

Well, just when you think you’re going too far by mocking her intelligence, Cortez gives you a whole new reason. I’d tell Alex that Crenshaw’s joke went over her head, but I’m afraid she might take it literally.
Allow me to try and clear things up. In the recent football competition, the New England Patriots were the winners. Which means all the other teams were not the winners. Crenshaw was joking about punishing the Patriots in order to “level the playing field” and create more “fairness.” Think awarding 70 percent of their points to the other teams. Much like the left wishes to do with their tax policies. It’s a perfectly legit tweet. I fail to see why this is so difficult to understand.
Notice also the dig at the team owners for not picking up
Gonzo Colin Kaepernick. As if the NFL owes little Colin a spot on a team. Something tells me Nina-Pinta here is unaware of the concept of earning things. Whether it be money or a position in an organization.
Unfairness and inequality are inevitable in life. Sure, the NFL has certain policies which try to make each team competitive but, of the 32 teams, only one can win. It’s not fair to the other 31 that they don’t get the Lombardi Trophy. Dan Crenshaw was mocking the leftist pipe dream of making everyone a winner, and he did a damn fine job of it.
Try again, Cortez.
