Former Navy SEAL Rep. Dan Crenshaw took to Twitter with a message for the perpetually offended.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw tweeted: “If you’re offended by a shoe celebrating the flag of the American Revolution, it’s a good indication that you may be better off living in a permanent safe space. Or Cuba.”
Crenshaw is, of course, absolutely correct.
If you’re offended by a shoe celebrating the flag of the American Revolution, it’s a good indication that you may be better off living in a permanent safe space.

On Tuesday, former Navy SEAL Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) weighed in on the controversy over Nike pulling the “Betsy Ross Flag” edition of a shoe after the original national anthem protester, former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, complained that some might find it “offensive.” Those who have a problem with the flag of the American Revolution, Crenshaw suggested, might want to find a “permanent safe space” — or communist Cuba, which Kaepernick infamously praised in 2016.
The “Betsy Ross Flag” controversy earlier this week occurred amid reports that Nike let Kaepernick — with whom the company signed a multi-million-dollar deal last year and who has repeatedly denigrated the United States — convince the company to pull a patriotic edition of a shoe featuring the original 13-star flag created by Ross during the American Revolution. The flag, Kaepernick suggested, might offend some people because of potential association with an era of slavery and its adoption by some on the far-right, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Nike’s decision has prompted Arizona’s Republican governor to pull the financial incentives offered to Nike to build a manufacturing facility, two Democratic governors — California’s Gavin Newsom and New Mexico’s Michelle Lujan Grisham — to praise Nike and attempt to court them for the facility, and multiple Democratic presidential candidates to cheer Nike for dropping the patriotic shoe.
