Representative Dan Crenshaw may not dance a jig quite as cutely as Representative Ocasio-Cortez, but that doesn’t mean you should count the man out. Crenshaw, who I desperately want to refer to affectionately as “Patches,” was on Fox to discuss how a border wall is not only compassionate but nowhere near racist. Despite the bellyaching coming from Mommy and Daddy Nancy and Chuck.

It’s realistic and reasonable to want to protect the country’s borders with whatever will best protect the county’s borders.
To muddy the waters, to suggest border security is anything other than border security is disingenuous at best, malicious at worst. It’s not racist to build a wall any more than it’s racist to secure the deadbolt on your front door. There’s nothing racist, or xenophobic about keeping your home safe.
Dan Crenshaw and others need to keep hitting this point loudly and often until the border wall is funded now. Build it. Build it tall. Build it strong.
