Americans are a country of people that should be proud of who they are and what they’ve accomplished and despite what the left may say about you or this country, it’s one that not only needs defending, it deserves defending.
That was the message from North Carolina’s Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson during the North Carolina Republican Party State Convention. It was a speech that went overlooked due to the appearance of former President Donald Trump and his speech, but it’s one that deserves to be seen and heard by any Republican, and indeed any American who has pride in their country.
Robinson delivered his remarks with all the fire of a southern preacher on Sunday, but it’s not just the delivery. The reminder of who we are is necessary.
“The greatest example that I saw, and witnessed it firsthand on television, was during 9/11. People running away from those burning buildings, running away in horror. We saw a policeman and fireman running to those buildings, basically running to their deaths to go help others because they saw trouble and they knew that they would need it.,” said Robinson.
“That’s got to be us this day right here,” he continued. “And what is the trouble? The trouble is the Biden administration that is seeking the turn this country into a socialist hellhole. The trouble is Antifa, who wants to roam the streets and beat you into submission. The trouble is Black Lives Matter that claims to care about the lives of black people but it’s turned a blind eye
while violence in black communities are taking lives at a genocidalal of rate. They turn a blind eye!”
“That’s where the trouble is and that’s where we’ve got to run to,” he added.
“We’ve got all the right in the world on our side, and there ain’t no reason to be afraid,” said Robinson. “It ain’t no reason to not take the challenge dead on.”
Robinson reminded the crowd who it is we come from, saying that we don’t descend from “weak, jelly backed, spineless people.” He also made it clear that it doesn’t matter your skin color or what nation your ancestors came from, nor how much money you have. In the end, we’re all Americans.
“At Bunker Hill that was Americans. And at Fredericksburg and Gettysburg that was Americans. And at Iwo Jima, raising that flag on Suribachi, it was Americans. And at Pork Chop Hill, that was Americans. Khe Sanh, that was Americans. And on 9/11 there was America who ran towards those burning buildings,” he continued.
“That is who you share your heritage with. You do not share your heritage with a weak and ineffective people who cower at the sign of trouble!” he added.
Robinson said it’s time we remember who we are and stand up to those who would try to bring us down and that we fight, not for us, but for future generations so they can have the freedom and prosperity Americans have been fighting for over generations.
I encourage you all to take a minute to listen to this fiery speech by Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina Mark Robinson.

If that doesn’t get you fired up, then I don’t know what will.
