Heritage Foundation President Kevin Roberts issued a dire warning on Thursday, stating that the 2024 presidential election could potentially be the last chance to save the country. That’s not a pleasant thought, is it? But look how unrecognizable our nation already is. Now imagine where it will be with another four years of Joe Biden in office. Well, if he lives long enough to even finish out a second term.
Roberts delivered an address to open up the Heritage Foundation’s 50th Anniversary Leadership Summit, where he talked about the radical left’s attack against the founding principles of our great country and how we can go about fighting back and reigning victorious in the culture war.
“The Left has abandoned the principles of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, the consent of the governed, free and fair elections, the separation of powers, the First and Second Amendments, and more, Roberts said,” according to the Daily Signal.
“This fight is a battle of foundational ideas,” Roberts said during his speech. “But the ideals of the Left today permit no room for self-government, for constitutionalism, and definitely not for federalism.”
Roberts then noted how the left has abandoned the rule of law, using the Justice Department targeting parents and Christians, the activist FBI, and of course Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg indicting former President Donald Trump as examples.
“They reject the very idea of national sovereignty, insisting the United States belongs to the globalist elites instead of to us, the everyday hardworking American citizens,” Roberts continued.
Roberts added that the Democratic Party has now become characterized by rich and powerful elites, while the GOP now belongs to the religious working class.
“It’s no wonder that post COVID, nine out of 10 of the wealthiest congressional districts are now represented by Democrats, while Republicans represent 64% of congressional districts with median income,” Roberts, who hails from Texas, continued.
Roberts then revealed that his organization is not fighting so Republicans can gain from the battle. He then used a quote from President Ronald Reagan who stated, “There is no such thing as a Left or Right.”
He then made it clear the American people must not forget the mismanagement that happened during the coronavirus pandemic.
“For the first time, the COVID crisis finally gave government elites the power to direct our lives in the way they always wanted to,” he added in the address. “What did they do? They censored us. They shut down small businesses and schools. They separated us from our dying parents and grandparents. They conspired with Big Tech.”
Here’s more from the report:
Meanwhile, legacy media cheered the Left on and establishment Republicans did nothing, Roberts explained.
“We want to change that,” he declared. “We can no longer hold almost any illusions about what the woke Marxist Left is about. The consequences of losing are the odds stacked against us.”
Yet, Roberts remains upbeat.
“The conservative movement is answering this challenge and rising to this moment with courage and vigor,” the former Wyoming Catholic College president said.
On Friday, Heritage will release a 900-page edition of “Mandate for Leadership,” which guides a potential conservative president in leading the charge against the left-wing agenda embedded in the administrative state.
“This is our fight,” Roberts remarked during the event, “and we’re going to win.”
He then warned that the left is trying to destroy our country.
“This new iteration of the Left, tyrannical, elitist, anti-American, anti-Constitution, cannot be bargained with,” he stated. “It cannot be placated. It simply must be defeated.”
“You see the Left started this culture war, and we’re going to finish it and we’re going to win it,” Roberts said, going on to conclude, “We will never give up. We will never give in. We will never concede an edge. We will never rest until together we have reclaimed this.”
