North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson (R) delivered a stirring speech on Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas, Texas.
Robinson began his speech at CPAC Texas 2022 by giving thanks to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Then Robinson explained how he had overcome the adversity of being a poor black kid from Greensboro with an alcoholic father who passed away when he was 12 years old.
"Every strike that the left says I have – poor black with a widowed mom living on the wrong side of the tracks," Robinson proudly announced. "But that poor black kid from the wrong side of the tracks was sitting on the 27th floor of this hotel overlooking the Dallas skyline as the first black lieutenant governor of North Carolina."
"America is still the greatest nation on Earth," Robinson proclaimed. "And I don't care what these communists say. I don't care what the socialists say. I don't care what these blue-haired freaks say."
"This is the greatest nation on Earth, and it's all because of God," Robinson declared. "He's the one that made it all impossible. So we give him thanks."
Robinson told the story of Civil War legend Army Maj. Gen. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain – the Medal of Honor recipient who defended the Little Round Top hill for the Union against the Confederates during the Battle of Gettysburg.
Robinson compared everyday conservative Americans to Chamberlain's soldiers of the 20th Regiment Maine Volunteer Infantry that defended Little Round Top.
The North Carolina lieutenant governor implored conservative Americans to fight back against the agenda of Democrats.
"They're coming up the hill followed by a whole raft of socialist nitwits, who believe that a baby in the womb is a clump of cells and do not honor life in the womb," he said. "They believe that you should not have a firearm to protect yourself, but you should pay for them to have firearms to protect them."
"They don't believe that your children should be educated, they believe that they shouldn't be indoctrinated," he continued. "They dragging up that hill all types of things: CRT, transgenderism, this idea of birthing people – who in the world came up with that garbage?"
"They dragging up this socialist idea that criminals should not be punished, that they should be allowed to run rampant," Robinson said. "That our borders should be wide open, that our police should be doing not demonized, that our veterans should be dishonored."
"See those folks that are coming up that hill? There's a word for them – they're called 'socialists.' They're called 'communists,'" Robinson trumpeted. "I just prefer to call them 'idiots.'"
Robinson lambasted mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations that are required to "keep your job, open your business, or go to church."
The outspoken Republican emphasized that conservative Americans are cut from the same cloth as Chamberlain and his 20th Regiment Maine Volunteer Infantry.
"We did not come from a weak, ineffective jelly back people that when trouble happens, we find a safe space, and try to find a counselor to talk about it," Robinson exclaimed.
"Americans stand up and fight for what they believe in and will put their lives on the line for what they believe in," he added. "They will put their money where their mouth is."
"And when the times get tough," Robinson bellowed. "You had best believe that Americans get going, just like they did on Little Round Top. They don't lay down, they don't back up, they don't quit. They stand up with everything in them and they push forward."... (Read more)
