Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz became one of main stars at the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference in Florida after clips of his speech went viral over the weekend.
On Friday, February 26, Ted Cruz gave an explosive speech at CPAC where he discussed COVID restrictions, warned of the dangers of leftists policies, and gave the case for liberty in the United States.
“We are gathered in dark times,” Cruz began. “We’re gathered at a time where the hard left – where the socialists control the levers of government. Where they control the White House, where they control every executive branch, where they control both houses of Congress. Bernie is wearing mittens and AOC is telling us she was ‘murdered.’”
“And the media desperately, desperately, desperately wants to see a Republican civil war,” he added. “Liberty is under assault. And what are we going to do? I’ll tell you, we will fight.”
Cruz went on to discuss the insanely authoritarian COVID restrictions, including New York’s attack on Jewish playgrounds and California’s attack on skateparks.
He asserted that the most important aspects of the fight against left-wing tyranny are to “defend liberty” and “have fun,” because “the left believes in rigid conformity.”
This is a very important point, as anyone objectively viewing the left at this point can see that the Democrats have become the anti-comedy, anti-freedom, and pro-censorship party in the country. Anything remotely fun or funny has been stripped from the left as they force the American people to walk on eggshells to avoid hurting the feelings of the oversensitive “woke” crowd.
The most popular clip of Ted Cruz’s speech was the conclusion, as he showed passion that most people haven’t seen from him during his tenure in political office.
“I’m going to close with these words of encouragement, these are dark days and the media tells us this is the new Galactic Empire forever and a thousand years. But already, Joe Biden and the radicals in his administration, they are already overshooting, they are already going too far. Their policies don’t work. They are disasters. They are bad. They are destroying jobs. They are stripping our freedom,” Cruz said.
“And there is a natural pendulum to politics. And the country will come back to sanity,” Cruz continued. “And mark my words 2022 is going to be a fantastic election year and so is 2024 as we stand together and defend liberty, defend the Constitution, defend the Bill of Rights of every American. In the immortal words of William Wallace. Freedom!”
