Congressman Crenshaw: ‘Small-Minded Leaders Across The Country Have Become Drunk With Power’

It's time someone cut off their bar tab.


Former Navy SEAL GOP Congressman Dan Crenshaw of Texas has a big problem with a judge who on Tuesday sentenced a Dallas woman to seven days in jail and a $7,000 fine for reopening her hair salon. In fact, the judge should have been jailed for coming between a Texas girl and her hair.

Congressman Crenshaw: “These punishments are NOT just. They are not reasonable. Small-minded ‘leaders’ across the country have become drunk with power. This must end.”

Shelley Luther had to reopen her business because a federal loan had arrived late, she said to the Dallas Morning News. Judge Eric Moye decreed Luther could avoid jail by reclosing her salon. She chose jail.

“I have to disagree with you, sir, when you say that I’m selfish because feeding my kids is not selfish. I have hairstylists that are going hungry because they would rather feed their kids. So, sir, if you think the law is more important than kids getting fed, then please go ahead with your decision. But I am not going to shut the salon,” said Luther.

Bravo, ma’am!

This woman should be a poster girl for the true Texas and American spirit when it comes to politicians who are using this virus crisis to give in to their worst power-crazed tendencies. Shelley Luther is indicative of people across the country who have had enough of this. But politicians aren’t listening to them. These elected officials have their own twisted megalomaniacal agendas. The examples abound.

Last last month a 40-year-old Idaho mother was arrested for refusing to leave a playground. She had only brought her two children there to play. In North Carolina, members of the “ReOpen NC” group were arrested last week. The charge? Violating the Democrat governor’s executive order on public gatherings. Convenient how that politician deployed his order against those who were protesting against him.

“If you feel the need to stay home, it is your God-given right to do so. But we want to live!” Ashley Elaina Smith said. “[Gov.] Roy Cooper has shown again and again how out of touch he really is. With his illogical declarations of who’s essential and who’s not, he’s effectively destroyed generational family businesses and many good businesses alike. He’s got to go. November’s coming, baby.”
