Rep. Dan Crenshaw: ‘Heroism Is Grace Not Perpetual Outrage’

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) says Americans will have to embrace the virtues of self-sacrifice, tolerance, and courage if the country is to “rediscover” its strength.

Speaking at the Republican National Convention (RNC) on Wednesday, Crenshaw said America is a “nation of heroes.”

“We need to remind ourselves what heroism really is. Heroism is self-sacrifice, not moralizing, and lecturing over others when they disagree. Heroism is grace, not perpetual outrage,” Crenshaw said.

“Heroism is rebuilding our communities, not destroying them. Heroism is renewing faith in the symbols that unite us, not tearing them down,” he added.

Crenshaw went on to say that America is a “fabric woven from the threads of history’s best stories.”

“The American spirit reflects the oldest and most important virtues: Self-sacrifice, courage, tolerance, love of country, grace, compassion for human achievement. We can decide right now that American greatness will not be rejected, nor squandered. As the American founding was grounded in individual liberty, so will be our future,” he said.

However, he said if America wants to “rediscover our strength,” Americans have to “become the heroes that we so admire.”

“America was built by them. Our future will be protected by them. It will be protected by you,” he added.


  1. Scotty the Imposter ala genital troll- once again get out of your fantasy land and get facts before shooting your little fingers off. Trump did not promote cutting $2.2 billion from Vet health care in FACT IT WAS THE OPPOSITE here is his quote:
    A proposal by Pentagon officials to slash Military Healthcare by $2.2 billion dollars has been firmly and totally rejected by me,” Trump tweeted, seeming to confirm the existence of the proposal. “We will do nothing to hurt our great Military professionals & heroes as long as I am your President. Thank you!”
    Once again Scotty get your facts together or STFU in your own fantasy land.

  2. “as some formerly anti-gun Dims have suddent discovered. q.v the McCloskeys” I Ching

    I Ching is confused by misleading comments from the very unreliable and dispreputible Turning Point USA. While Mr McCloskey has DONATED to Democratic candidates, their state has no voting records to prove HOW they voted. Turning Point jump the assumption gap to make an assertion, more than likely a very incorrect assertion. If they ever did vote Democrat, it probably was some time ago. (Yes, that is MY assumption, based on their very obviously wacko recent history.)

  3. “I’m so happy that citizens shot rioters in Kenosha.” I Ching

    Are you? Are you REALLY happy that a 17yo kid MURDERED people on the street? YOU are sick, I Ching.

  4. I’m so happy that citizens shot rioters in Kenosha. Burning businesses AND attacking people is so peaceful and constructive. Just like looting.

    The civil war has been underway for years. Now it’s going hot. Buy whatever guns and ammo you can, as some formerly anti-gun Dims have suddent discovered. q.v the McCloskeys. YOU are their own 1st respondersand defunding the police is an idiot idea.

  5. To bobblehead, TDS sufferer Phil:

    What have YOU sacrificed? Hmm?

    “self-sacrifice, tolerance, and courage” Please explain how the Dims have displayed a single one of those qualities, especially that TOLERANCE thing.

    You have been in denial since 2016. You cannot TOLERATE ideas which do not agree with you. q.v. the MSM, digital monopolies, and Dims who suppress free speech (without the burning, violence, and destruction Dims are strangely silent about), AND ideas.

  6. Heroism is fighting for the nation’s founding principles, not destroying them. Heroism is speaking up when the same individuals that claim they want FREEDOM OF RELIGION are shouting support of a Muslim ban!—Trumpers, Islam is a religion–its followers are called Muslims. Religious freedom does not mean freedom to practice a religion you chose.
    FREEDOM OF THE PRESS: Does not mean the press is free to only air or print information you wish to hear.
    FREEDOM OF SPEECH: Does not mean only speech you agree.

    Lieutenant Commander Dan Crenshaw showed COURAGE as a Navy Seal. WHAT vote has Rep. Crenshaw taken that demonstrated courage as opposed to following the Party line? We have not seen one yet.

  7. “[Dan Crenshaw] said if America wants to “rediscover our strength,” Americans have to “become the heroes that we so admire.” Article

    Right, so why did King Donald The Loser just try to cut $2 billion from military health care?
