Feb 27, 2021 Charlie Kirk Speaks at CPAC 2021 and Takes Aim at Big Tech
Charlie Kirk took the stage at CPAC 2021 in Orlando Florida today. Kirks seech was about freedom of speech and the power of “big tech” asking the question, “which is more powerful, Google or the federal government?”
Kirk points out that most people would say the federal government has more power as they can create laws and put you in jail, but at least with them you have due process.
“What happens if Google decides to come after you” Kirk asks. He points out how Google can wipe away a person or information, instantaneously.
Kirk went on to ask the crowd, “What does it mean to be a conservative? First and foremost, we are here to conserve God given liberites and freedoms. We are here to protect the family, our country, the American way of life.”
“When a group of people in a concentrated area controlling trillion dollar companies decide to impose a viewpoint that is completely contrary to the American way of life and then we say, well we can’t do anything because they’re a private company, excuse me” Kirk states. He continues, ” As soon as you have 200 million users and 93 percent of all search results, you’re not the local flower shop or the local coffee shop, and you shouldn’t be treated as such, and we as conservatives must be very clear, if you do not support breaking up big tech, or challenging big tech you are not a conservative, you are a corporatist.”
