Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, delivered powerful remarks at CPAC last week. He said whatever the Left targets, conservatives should embrace.
“They’re attacking parents who are trying to hold schoolboards accountable for targeting their children with Marxist, anti-American Critical Race Theory,” Fitton said. “That means we should embrace the rights of parents to direct the education of their children.”
He said the Left is attacking government transparency, which shows we should embrace and expand government transparency.
They’re attacking the courts and are angry at the Supreme Court for restoring the states’ ability to protect innocent unborn babies. The right must embrace the rule of law, including the principle that courts should decide cases free of political influence.
And the Left is attacking the right to life while promoting abortion up until birth — and beyond.
“This means we should embrace life, protect the unborn and confront the culture of death,” he said.
What gets Fitton really upset, he said, is the Left’s attack on our kids.
“The Left is attacking our children — pushing sex talk, transgender extremism and noxious politics in our schools,” he said. “We should reject this demonic assault on the innocence of our children and stand fast against Leftist efforts to mutilate their bodies and minds.”
The First Amendment and free speech are under attack from the Left, meaning the Right should reject the politicized censorship of our God-given free speech rights.
Finally, the Left is attacking our elections, making it easier to steal elections with “unsupervised voting.”
“Mass mail-in voting, no voter ID and the counting of ballots for forever and a day,” he said. “And if you raise a question about their schemes, as we’re seeing what they’re doing with the January 6 prosecutions, they’ll literally try to put you in jail. We should embrace secure elections and vindicate our rights to speak and advocate for clean elections that aren’t rigged by Hillary, Obama, Zuckerberg, Twitter or the FBI.”
