GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has told his fellow conservative Republicans that three secularist concerns – race, gender and climate – have put the United States in danger today and is calling for the FBI to dismantle the Department of Education and sanctions on the US. proposed to be installed. Companies doing business with China if he is elected the country’s president in 2024.
“Today’s Declaration of Independence is our declaration of independence from China. If Thomas Jefferson were alive today, he would have signed the Declaration of Independence. If I am elected as your next president it is the Declaration of Independence.”37 Ramaswamy, 20, said in his address to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) – the top annual event of the Republican Party and its support base.
In his first major address from a national platform at CPAC, Mr. Ramaswamy, who last week announced his decision to enter the 2024 race for the White House, said he stood by former President Donald Trump, 76, and his “America First”. are inspired by. Vision. He said it is time to identify the issues and work aggressively towards them.
In his 18-minute speech, Mr. Ramaswamy said, “Three secular religions have put America in trouble today”.
The first of these is this “awakened racial religion” which says that one’s identity is based on the color of one’s skin. “If you are black, you are inherently disadvantaged. If you are white, you are inherently privileged, regardless of your economic background or your upbringing. Your race determines who you are and who you What can you achieve in life,” he said.
This has created “this new culture of fear in America” coupled with “another secular religion” that says “the person you attract has to be hardwired into the day you were born” but your own. Biological sex is completely fluid during your lifetime”.
Ramaswamy said, “It has no meaning unless it is a religion. It does not correspond to reason, it corresponds to religion. And then it first takes the same steps as religion.”
The third is the climate religion in America that says “we have to fight carbon emissions in the United States at all costs, while we shift those same carbon emissions to places like China, even if you believe in this religion, you are nuclear.” energy, the best form of carbon-free energy production known to mankind”.
“And yet these people oppose nuclear energy. What’s really going on is that climate religion has as much to do with climate as the Spanish Inquisition had with Christ, which is nothing say. It’s about power. Domination, control, punishment and apologizing for everything we’ve achieved in this country and the modern West as we know it,” Mr. Ramaswamy said to applause from the audience. Said the beach.
America, he said, is in the midst of a national identity crisis.
“Take it from me. I’m 37. I’m a millennial. I was born in 1985. I’ll tell you this, my generation, really every generation of Americans today, we’re very hungry for a reason. We are hungry for purpose and meaning and identity at a point in our national history when the things that used to fill our hunger for purpose, faith, patriotism, hard work, family — those things have disappeared,” he said.
“We hunger to be part of something bigger than ourselves, yet we cannot even answer the question of what it means to be American today. This is an opportunity for the GOP. This is an opportunity for the conservative movement to rise above have the opportunity.” opportunity and fill that void with a vision of American national identity that runs so deep that it dilutes this awakening poison to irrelevance,” he said.
Mr. Ramaswamy said he has an “America first” agenda. “Trust me, I’m an America first conservative. I won’t apologize for it. But in order to put America first, we need to figure out what America is all about now. And that’s why last week I launched a national campaign for the US president. To declare our race is the identity that we are missing in this country,” he said.
“It means that you believe in merit, that you get ahead in this country not on the color of your skin, but on the content of your character and your contributions. And that is why, as the President of the United States, I pledged I want to rid this country of affirmative action forever. It is a national cancer on our soul,” he said.
The Indian American said that he would prevent American companies from doing business in China.
“I think it’s important to be honest. If we want to declare independence from China, that means we have to stop most American businesses from doing business in China until the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) falls or the CCP fundamentally stops doing business in China. Be prepared to ban.” corrects itself. Because there’s no easy way out other than taking a Band-Aid and getting it over with right away,” he said.
“I’m sorry Henry Kissinger. We’re done with your experiment. In America, this is the only way out. We need to start thinking on the time scale of history, not the time scale of election cycles. We don’t need Chamberlain Yes, we need a little bit of Churchill in this country. If you’re prepared to make the sacrifice, chances are you’ll never have to because the other side will fall first,” he insisted.
In his speech, Mr. Ramaswamy also called for the abolition of the Department of Education and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
“I already said last week, the first agency that we will shut down and needs to shut down in the United States is the US Department of Education. It has no reason to exist. Should never have existed.
“And today, I stand ready to announce the second government agency I will be shutting down in this country that we should have done at least 60 years ago. It has hurt Republicans and Democrats alike. We must end it.” It is time for America to shut down the FBI and build something new to replace it as we work with the J. Edgar Hoover legacy to allow it to become a self-governing nation again. are,” he said.
