The threat is real, remarks Charlie Kirk, “there is a concerted and deliberate campaign to try to separate children from their parents, from the values they were raised with, and any connection to their country.” It’s Kirk’s business to know who the perpetrators are, and he is cognizant of what they seek, how they strike, who the culprits are, and what their motive is.
Founder and Executive Director of Turning Point USA, a national student movement with a presence in over 3,000 high schools and college campuses nationwide with more than 250,000 student members, “dedicated to identifying, organizing, and empowering young people to promote the principles of free markets and limited government,” Charlie Kirk. Joining Rebecca Weber, CEO of the Association of Mature American Citizens, for an innate interview last week on her Better for America podcast, he stated how our nation has undergone a profound change in the last decade, and not for the better.
Back in the day, he pointed out that “We didn’t talk about transgenderism or any of that nonsense, and guess what? We all got along. I went to a high school that … was racially diverse. It was linguistically diverse, and no one cared. No one talked about race. We all got along. We didn’t judge people based on their skin color or their background…And now we have hyper-racialized every possible situation. Which saddens me because I’ve lived through this ten-year transformation.” However, Kirk says, “I believe there is starting to be pushback against it, thankfully, against these charlatans that are pushing diversity, equity, inclusion, and all this nonsense. But it is going to be a fight, and it’s a fight we must win.”
Pertaining to the violence from the Left and the likelihood that the Supreme Court will overturn the 50-year-old Roe vs Wade Court decision legalizing abortion, Kirk attested, “It’s very dangerous. I support the decision, obviously, and praise God for Donald Trump, who put Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh, and Neil Gorsuch [on the Supreme Court] … Gorsuch has been questionable on some other decisions recently, unfortunately, but he’s been great on this, thankfully … I’d love to see abortion outlawed on a federal level, but to bring it back down to the states, and let states make their own choices. I think it is a very prudent and moderate step. Now, look, the left’s reaction at first was very predictable. But I think it has fizzled out. I mean, they’re not nearly as loud on this issue or as insistent as they could be. If you would have told me 3 to 4 years ago that there would be a time when Roe vs Wade would be repealed and be sent down to the states, I would have potentially conceived a situation, at least in my head, that would make the Floyd riots look like child’s play and we haven’t seen that.”
Mr. Kirk believes “there are two explanations for this…I think people are very tired, physically tired, immensely tired. They’re spiritually tired. They’re sick and tired of being sick and tired. They went from the Floyd-race-riots to COVID-tyranny to vaccine-mandates, to mask compliance, to having to have mandatory support for the proxy war in Ukraine. And that’s one of the reasons why this [the pending undoing of Roe vs Wade] is fizzled out. The second reason is that I just don’t think there is the broad-based kind of left-wing support for radical abortion policies that the media has told us there is. I don’t think it’s a winning issue for them across all demographics and spaces. I mean, the black community and the Hispanic community are largely overwhelmingly pro-life communities. And it’s really being driven by upper middle class white liberal women who are the most pro-choice people in America. They have their own very strong opinions on it, but I just don’t think it is a political winner for the Democrats.”
