(Liberty Bell) – Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and former presidential candidate, gave an encouraging and highly-charged speech on Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that is being held in Orlando, Florida from Thursday through Sunday of this week. He spoke boldly against the coronavirus lockdown restrictions and why Republicans need President Donald Trump to win in 2022, 2024, and beyond.
Cruz decided to open his speech by poking a little fun at himself as he confronted his “mistake” of taking his family on a trip to Cancun last week as Texas was dealing with the aftermath of the massive winter storm that left the state with power outages for days amidst freezing temperatures.
“I gotta say, Orlando is awesome. It’s not as nice as Cancun, but it’s nice.”
He then turned serious and moved on to say, “We are gathered in dark times. 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.”
The media “desperately, desperately, desperately wants to see a Republican civil war,” Cruz stated, “Liberty is under assault and what are we going to do? We will fight!” he said.
The senator then told the room that the media looks at them as “dangerous radicals.”
Cruz included, as part of his speech, a reference to Star Wars when he drew a parallel between the rebel alliance and the CPAC attendees as they are politically battling the empire’s tyranny. Brilliant!
Further along in his speech, the senator made sure to slam the mask mandates as well as social distancing, referring to them as “dumb” and then went on to describe the military occupation that is currently happening in Washington DC as nothing more than “political theater.”
“The Democrats are convinced that political theater helps them. Let’s be clear: this is not about security at this point; this is about political theater. Half the country, the ‘deplorables,’ are dangerous; and they’re going to turn the Capital into a military outpost in Baghdad just to have their compliant media echo that message.”
After this Cruz made remarks referring to the fear the Democrats have of Trump’s influence over the GOP.
“They look at Donald J Trump and they look at the millions and millions of people inspired who went to battle fighting alongside President Trump and they’re terrified and they want him to go away.”
“Let me tell you this right now: Donald J Trump ain’t going anywhere; and the Republican party is not the party just of the country clubs. The Republican party is the party of steel workers and construction workers and pipeline workers and taxi-cab drivers and cops and firefighters and waiters and waitresses and the men and women with calluses on their hands who are working for this country. That is our party and these ‘Deplorables’ are here to stay.”
All in all, Ted Cruz delivered an inspiring speech with calls to action for the true Republicans who have and will continue to fight courageously and tirelessly to keep America the greatest country there ever was! Thank you, Senator Cruz.
