Charlie Kirk: Don’t Disregard a Socialist, It Is Hard to Run Against ‘Free’
By Breitbart, February 27, 2020:
Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk told Breitbart News that conservatives shouldn’t disregard a socialist opponent to President Donald Trump, as it is difficult to run against the false promise of “free” stuff. Kirk spoke to host Matthew Boyle at the 2020 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Maryland during an interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily.
“And by the way, President Trump has said this, that it’s hard to run against someone who’s willing to promise stuff that is not your own — and willing to cancel student loan debt — that’s a difficult thing to run up against,” he added.
“Socialism is an evil, greedy, self-righteous ideology that exploits the citizens while using people’s misfortunes as political opportunities for power,” affirmed Kirk.
The Turning Point USA founder added that the education system in the United States has contributed to an influx of people endorsing socialism.
“Unfortunately, the socialist term has become diluted over the years, because our school system has infected our country with hundreds of thousands, if not millions of young people that think Marxism is a good thing,” said Kirk.
“Do not discount him,” added Kirk of Sanders. “I don’t ever want to hear again from another conservative, ‘Oh, we’re going to win in a landslide.’ Do not be a Hillary Clinton sycophant like they were in 2016, where they thought they were going to win.”
“It’s deathly serious here, Matt, because we brought down the Berlin Wall 30 years ago, and now we’re going to elect the same ideology that we beat geopolitically, potentially as President of the United States,” warned the Turning Point USA founder.
