Falwell’s BFF Charlie Kirk Calls Trump “The Bodyguard Of Western Civilization” In Dog Whistle RNC Speech

USA Today reports:

Kirk is a Trump family confidant and the head of Turning Point USA, which is devoted to attracting and energizing young voters. Kirk blamed “bitter, deceitful, vengeful” opponents for the nation’s woes and described Trump as an antidote to that division.

Kirk’s message offered a particularly bleak view of the nation, arguing the country is “locking up pastors” while “releasing violent criminals from prison” and “kicking doctors off of social media” while “promoting Chinese state-funded propaganda” on other tech platforms. “Trump is the bodyguard of western civilization,” he said.

The New York Post reports:

The 26-year-old conservative activist framed November’s election as a battle between “preserving America as we know it and eliminating everything that we love.” He said the nation’s values were under attack from “deceitful, vengeful, arrogant activists.”

However, reelecting Trump, “will ensure that our kids are raised to love America, not taught to hate our beautiful country,” Kirk said.

The youth activist, who founded his nonprofit in 2012, when he was just 18, has been a longtime supporter of Trump. The president has spoken at a number of the organization’s events.
