[applause]
thank you so much. thank you so much for having me. my name is liz wheeler and i hope the show tipping point on america news network. on july 6 of this year the day after independence day i logged into twitter as one does. and found myself lost by none other than everybody's favorite socialist aoc. [applause] block. i am always respectful, always civil and i had even defended aoc with political policies which are delusional and i had defended her and comments about her looks or her age as a bartender. when i rebut her tweets i only present facts.
nothing personal. you know what that means? somebody is threatened by fax of the truth and this is the tweet that made them block me. trump spent millions on a poorly attended one day parade and days after he cannot afford toothpaste and soap for children and he asked congress for military parade money, no he held them hostage to secure billions. i responded and i said stop. you voted no on afford half a billion dollar bill to give emergency to humanitarian aid for weeks to these migrant children in the detention centers. if you wanted to help the kids, you could have but you did not. that's the tweet that made her block me.
because 25000 people retweeted and like that tweet and more than a quarter million other people thought. [applause] so eventually the truth stings if you are socialist and the aoc is a public official in a critical part of our public dialogue and or self-governance to hold elected officials accountable. by the way, i am team never block on twitter, i've never blocked a single person even a troll on twitter. i love engaging with people who disagree with me. but aoc is not confident enough in her principles to do the same thing. also, you would have to be illiterate granny to think that blocking somebody prevents them from senior tweets. so that means, this is
important. that means only reason to block somebody if they were being undeunder spectral as your ideoy is challenge. that word is cowardice. there were blue checkmarks who try to blame me for getting blocked as if i did something inappropriate or wrong to deserve being blocked. other than challenging congresswoman aoc's congressional voting record. as if my fact check was equaled anyway to violence. here's what i would say, don't think about blaming me for violence. violence and threat are 100% wrong. it is a hideous and false accusation to blame me for other people's disgusting behavior. i challenge you congresswoman voting record in congress for goodness sake. and maliciously and falsely
civil criticism of our government with violence. here is your daily reminder. that that very same week a domestic terrorist, and a thug attacked and facility with a rifle and with bombs. in the left did not care. in portland, oregon, independent journalist was brutally beaten that he suffered a brain hemorrhage. the democratic mayor of portland refused on twitter to condemn anti-for my name. and i would know, i asked him to condemn him name. and he said he condemns all violence and vaguely he refused to condemn the attackers by name and again, the democrats did not care. and this is what the left does. they don't like my facts, they
try to defined my speech as violence. this is a sneaky tact that they used to silence me. because if my speech is violent then they have to shut me down. i am here to tell you this morning, do not fall for it, refuse to be silent in the face of leftist bullying. this is perhaps the most critical point. congress and aoc does not just want an echo chamber of her own ideology for herself. she is not just bothered by see my responses to her tweets, herself, she is preventing her nearly 5 million followers from seeing the truth. in my response to her tweets are frequently the top-rated responses on her tweets, that scares her. why would that scare somebody
confident in their policy position? confident that they were telling the truth. what would she not want her followers to see the facts and figures and numbers. unless she is lying. and she knows she is lying. the point is, you and i today as young americans and conservatives we should do the opposite of aoc. we should not back down from criticism our policy position. if we truly believe what we say we believe. we should welcome criticism. if you see a tweet of mine that you don't like or you think is wrong bring it on, proved to me, show me, convince me why i am wrong. i welcome that. the radical left blocked for that. at the end of the day part of me was annoyed to be blocked by aoc i truly enjoyed it. but part of me was delighted because aoc proved that the tactic and my book work.
aoc got scared when i use the tactic in my book that she blocked me and tried to silence me. i spent the last year or can on this book and is called tipping point. finally after what seemed like an attorney and he we are four days around publication in the book releases on tuesday august 6 so everybody in this room who has a copy of my book, you will be the first one to read this. [applause] i wrote this book because politicians like aoc life, they light all the time. in my book i show you exactly how to debunk the lies of the left in order to ultimately defeat radical left ideology. this is what i wrote in my book,
liberals don't peddle their extreme progressive agenda haphazardly. they do it on purpose with the purpose. in other words, aoc did not block me on twitter on a whim, this is part of the strategy of the left. they are trying to create a binary choice, i break this down in my book. either on one hand, you adhere to the radical left ideology or the only alternative is you are a bad person. in my case they tried to claim i was a person stealing violent speech. she tried to give me a binary choice and i swallowed her lies about questioning them or evidently i deserved to be blocked. you can see this everywhere you look. is not just aoc or on twitter, you can look at the news for the past week or two and you can see the binary choice tactic that they use. no one omar is the biggest.
and some other things like claiming that jews hypnotize the world, accusing u.s. politicians of being bought off by the jews and they support the anti-semitic bbs movement. it does not recognize israel's right to defend themselves. it does not recognize and actually punishes israel for defending herself against palestinian terror attack. no one homework does not recognize, she ignores the terrorism and compares the jewish state of israel to nazi germany and the reason she does this, is to give you that binary choice, either you agree with her radical ideology, her anti-semitism or you are a bad person who is bad as nazi
germany. you see the binary choice, this is a strategy of the entire socialist plot. another member of the squad said last week we don't need more ground spaces who do not want to be brown voices. insinuating that if you want to be a real person of color you must adhere to her radical left ideology. other wise your traitor to your race. she is giving people the binary choice, either you adhere to what she is saying or you are about person. but here is the thing. once you know, once you understand tactics used by the radical left, these tactics are easy to destroy. they're easy to debunk.
so they told me i only have four hours, not a minute longer. i cannot show you all the tactics they use. but the binary choice is a favorite right now on the left. the ones who recognize it, you can and you should shove it off track. and i show you how you shove off track in my book too. i don't tell you what the left is doing, i tell you how to counter what the left is doing. i lay out 11 tactics that you can used to rhetorically track the left in their own lives. this morning i'm going to show you two of the tactics to round out my example. once you identify the tactics used by the left, it's a binary choice tactic, you can counter that by verbally calling it out. in expanding what they're doing. nobody likes to be told what they're doing. like i did before with aoc i
said aoc gave me a binary choice, either i agree or i'm about person. when aoc tries to defy my speech as violent, it is because if she defines my speech is violent then she has to shut it down. she has to silence me and she wants to silence me because she doesn't want her followers to see the truth and to see her lies exposed. and that is a tactic. spell it out. in order to achieve the goal that they want and explain them why they want to achieve that goal. and then, once you spell it the tactic, then you can use another tactic to make your point. my favorite tactic is redefining the question which is simple. instead of answering the question, you start your answer by reframing the question to a question that you prefer to
answer. take that tweet from aoc. especially her question, how can president trump keep migrant kids in cages. how could obama keep kids in cages and how could democrats during the obama administration say nothing about it. how can you claim that you care about kids in cages if you have opportunity to vote on a bill that would gave human attorney aid to the children and you chose to vote no. [applause] see how that works. these are two of the 11. this is what honestly, i was flattered that they block me because she's proven the tactic in my book which i use on her
work. thank you congresswoman for that. the other important thing i want to talk about is one of the five crucial tipping points in our country. in my book identify five battle grounds and other minor cultural norms to impose the radical left ideology on us instead. very simple, if we know where the left is attacking and how were assigned to impose their agenda on us and what tactics they use in a rhetorical sense we can stop them before we -- before they succeed. that's why we are all here today and one of the crucial tipping points is a less effort worth politically correct culture into law. if you hear the story, late last week about the trans gender person who is suing a boutique in canada because a person
identifies as a woman but the aesthetician declined to do a bikini wax for the trans person because a transgender woman has male genitalia. a person in canada forced an immigrant woman to close on her business because immigrant woman declined to wax the text the goals of a transgender person and he sued her for it. this person is trying to use the law they are trying to use the force of the law to force a woman in canada to touch his genitals even though she doesn't want to. she couldn't afford to fight the lawsuit so she had to shut down her business. the transgender person is jessica and as a mentor before this person was born male and now i did face female but has male genitalia and he's attracted to women he calls
himself a proud lesbian. now here's a topic that i hoped i'd never have to talk about in a microphone at a conference. hi mom, hi dad. waxing male genitalia and waxing female genitalia are two very different things that require two different skill sets. most waxing boutiques do brazilian waxing for women only. you can google the waxing places in your area and see for yourself but don't tell your parents you learn that here. the canadian aesthetician that this person is suing does brazilian and bikini wax and for women only. here's the thing the radical left has told us that transgender women are not transgender women, the leftist told us they are real women. even if they are born male and a male genitalia.
so she is claiming that these aestheticians are violating his human rights refusing to wax his testicles even though there's another waxing boutique that specializes in mail waxing. he does not want to go to that one. the transponder person wants women to touch his testicles even though they do not want to. you want to talk about the handmade tale for second period they want government to declare a human right for a man to force a woman to do something to his gentle tolls that they do not want to do. you might think way to sit here, where are the #metoo warriors. where are the my body, my choice protesters. where are the angry ladies. and if all around when it comes to defining an immigrant woman from an attack by a transgender
person, they are silenced. [applause] so this is what i mean when i say one of the tipping point in our nation is the left effort to morph culture into wall entered law. this is a transgender ideology that we conservatives have warned about. this is not cultural tolerance of people suffering. it's not how people are different or compassion, is not including transgender people in our society or stopping bullying. all of which are good at find things. but that is not the ultimate goal of the left. the left wants more in the politically correct culture that says if you believe in basic biology you are a bigot and they can criticize a transgender person for trying to force a
woman to touch his testicles. you might recognize something in the story. the binary choice again if you don't adhere to the radical leftist ideology then you are about person, a bigot. this is what the transgender movement has been about from the beginning. it is a political force that wants to mandate if every single one of us in this room violate reduce beliefs, violate personal views, violate workplace, violate skill sets and compel us to reject basic biology under penalty of the law. or else, like this immigrant woman in canada you will be sued and forced to shut down your business and if the left get their way socially ostracized. republicans were afraid to talk about issues that make them uncomfortable, don't say we did not warn you, now we have to
talk about waxing testicles. this is what i met when the left does not peddle the extreme agenda have had losing. they do it on purpose with the purpose. and the purpose is to morph culture into law. and legally compel and immigrant woman to touch his testicles even if she does not want to. this is one of five tipping points that i talk about in my book. therefore other ways, the left is trying to undermine a principal in which her nation was built and instead impose on us a radical leftist socialist ideology. i don't have time to tell you the other tipping points or spencer will come out and kick me off the stage. what i will say, the left counts on and relies on one thing to protect their lives and their tactics in the strategy. they rely on the mainstream media.
let me paint you a picture of the mainstream media on behalf of the radical leftist. inconveniently for me it's easy this week because this is not been a good week for the mainstream media. this week the mainstream media focused their outreach on dishes. dinnerware backup which we eat, place in particular, i'm not making the story up. a set of dishes or plates on sale that had concentric circle gonna play and descriptions of each circle and a red skinny jeans, favorite jeans and mom jeans. obviously they were talking about portions. and then you see the warriors in the virtual march on twitter and you would've thought this was a series of human rights abuse.
it accuse macy's of an eating disorder and "time" magazine a body shaming. this non-controversy started by a cvs science correspondent who tweeted she wanted to get the plates band, a legal in all 50 states. proportion of the new cycle, the story is what they spend their time and effort and focus covered. when real violence from anti-for targeting independent journalists. we are so radical, anti-semitic the aoc called the israeli government criminal and white supremacist jews. that's a contradiction for you. we have democrat politician in our congress in her squad that are refusing to disavow the anti-semitism and socialism. we have democrats on noreen the
baltimore because they would rather criticize the tweet from the president. we have democrats embracing l sharpton who said jews bloodthirsty and once walked a protester who signed the white man is the devil. and yet the mainstream media they refused to report a macy's dishes. the mainstream media is more outraged by audience like plates than about real issues. so do not believe from the cya. the mainstream media is covering for the democrats and the democrats rely on this. so don't let anybody tell you to ignore the mainstream media and pretend that they don't exist. the biased and the lies of the mainstream media must be dealt if her going to defeat the left. in my book i show you exactly
how that is. the message i want to leave with you, do not the left science to you. do not let them dictate and define the narrative, do not let the left claim moral support you're already ever and do not, when they do call them out and when they block you call them out even louder and remember we do not take marching orders. and from a party that says speech from conservative is violent but vibran violent frome left is speech. we do not take marching orders the teachers can a nurse in california that men can be women if they want to be so the same party can compel immigrant women attachments genitals.
our response to that, young conservatives next. [applause] before we get to questions two and into my show weeknights at 9:00 p.m. eastern, follow me. follow me on instagram, and follow me on twitter send me pictures and tell me what do you think when you read my book. and thank you so much for having me tonight. you are the next generation in our nation is lucky to have you. [applause]
[cheering] >> thank you. my name is madalyn i'm from the university of michigan. a lot of my peers are one issue in politics label on one issue and for example i get climate change and that's all that matters. how do i convince him to not care about other issues but talk about other issues and not just focus on one. >> when people are one issue voters because they don't understand how issues affect them on their daily lives, this will become apparent to your peers when they graduate college and get a job and how much the government takes out every week. suddenly they will start caring about the job market stuff like that. if you want to talk about social issues you can bring up some of the most egregious human rights issues that are happening in our
nation, abortion attacks everybody. we all know somebody who's had an abortion or thought about having an abortion. you could talk about the issue with them. we have this inherent part of our human nature that wants to stick up for people who do not have a voice to speak up in defense of themselves and you can bring other issues like that and say i care about abortion because all these women and unborn women are not getting a chance at life. i care about the economy because for women the better the job market the more choice that we have and what we do with our own lives. you can kin kind of show them hw the issues impacted. for the most part young people assume that the potable issues just happen and don't impact them. >> thank you, anyway, i wanted to say thank you for the book, we really appreciate it and also
over the course of the time you have been a newswoman up until four or five years ago, and by the way were so happy. a lot has happened and a lot has changed and i wanted to ask you what was the biggest learning point that you had in dealing with the left and the ideologies and what is the biggest mistake you see young conservatives like us make when we get involved. >> that is a two-part question. what's the biggest mistake and biggest change. it's remarkable. to step back and look at this, of the left from the party of barack obama to the party of the socialist squad. it's a matter of a couple of years and then virtually unrecognizable. in the policies that are being pushed by the radical left are very dangerous for a nation but
it should give us an advantage as conservatives because the majority even democratic voters don't want socialism or the green new deal as it's written or to be kicked off private insurance. i think the biggest mistake that is made and can be made young conservatives is not really focusing on humoring those ideas in talking about medicare for all. 180 million americans would lose their current healthcare coverage if we went on medicare for all. it would inevitably lead to rationing print that is not hypothetical. you can las look as socialist ad other westernized nations. in the uk children who have cystic fibrosis are being denied life-saving medication by the government for one reason. the government admits because they don't want to pay for. that will happen here. if we allow this system to be
imposed by the radical left in as young conservatives as we get too wonky in our debate and if we talk to big picture and neglect to tell people how it will impact them and hurt them then it's going to allow the vias to become mainstream versus being allocated with out-of-state. >> thank you so much,. >> my name is liam this is for the audience -- [applause] obviously an inside joke. carry on. --
>> in a time of leftist domination, violence along with suppression, how can i convince many people that we must stand together. pretty much at the time we must commit civil obedience. we have to unite in order to stay safe and survive the best we can. >> what you mean civil disobedience? we will do what we want but somehow your people and government who do whatever the hell they want to us. >> i'm not sure that's the correct attitude. the way i would look at it,. [applause] >> the way i would look at it, it's very important that we live in a nation that abides by the rule of law. and just because we don't like the law does not immediately give us justification to violate the law. there are certainly situations in our nation in the history where it's been necessary to
participate in civil disobedience. one of the ways it said apart from other nations when we the people have a problem with our government officials are doing we have legal recourse to fix that. we can vote for different representatives and we can lobby our representatives and we can speak out, we can write, we can propose ideas, there is so many different things we can do legally and lawfully prevent the radical left from taking over but i don't think the reaction should be civil disobedience. i cannot think of an example where civil disobedience is warranted. roots or something your thinking in particular? >> like what happened in deerfield. that would be one example i can think of right now. i thought about making one request and we start a position for the woman in canada --
>> that's not civil disobedience. i'm not saying it's about idea i'd would probably recommend that we put the idea of civil disobedience aside for the time being and make a list of things that can be done lawfully to engage with our government within the rule of law. >> that is not true. we have plenty of options. you can go to town hall events, run office yourself, you plenty of options. i would encourage you to try all of those first. [applause] hi and go to the university of michigan. i slightly disagree with your point on the law congresswoman .
so i hope no one gasps after say this. but i do not think that she is an anti-semite. one moment. so under the same logic i would consider trump to be an anti-semite because he told the republican coalition and suggested that i know what you guys are not going to vote for me, i do not want your money it's on recording. so what i am saying, if the right wants to be nuanced about anti-semitism or bigotry in general they should also hold trump to the standard that no onomer --
>> let me ask you the question describe what the movement is? >> it is a movement to boycot boycott -- i support the state of israel is i don't agree with her movement, i just think a lot of people in the movement -- >> what is the movement? >> it's the boycott and sanction. >> why do they want to boycott his or her questioning. >> because they don't agree with the state of missouri -- they don't agree with what part questioning. >> they don't agree with this existence. >> so -- why do they not agree with? >> there are various reasons why people to agree -- >> why --
>> i'm not sure as to what their position is -- >> i'm not trained to slam you down but i'm trying to help you think critically. it is boycott because they do not agree with israel's existence and the right to defend herself. you have to ask why do they not agree with israel's right to defend herself. every other country in the world has a sovereign right to defend their own people. there is only one reason for that. israel is a jewis jewish state f israel. it's because it's a jewish state and when you hold jewish people to standards on venezuela who is oppressing the people and starving their people does not want sanctions on venezuela.
and does not want sanctions on israel. in saudi arabia or iran and throw gay people off the top of buildings. but they want sanctions on israel for defending their people on terror attack and the reason for the double standard is because the state of israel is jewish and the other nations aren't and that is anti-semitism because they are jewish and that's what makes it wrong. [applause] [applause] >> you can follow-up heard. >> i was not finished making my point. >> it was in terms of bigotry, this president is a president who wanted to be in people of an entire religion in his campaign. [crowd boos]
what is your name? >> i am jacob i was given permission to talk to him. so citizenship senses, is there way to guarantee that we know who is putting down the name gets truly them. like social security numbers or green card numbers or visa numbers, but is there a way to guarantee customer. >> are you talking about -- are you worried that are not identifying as citizens? >> some some people put down social security numbers and names and get it correct. >> is there a way to guarantee that the person who is writing the name is actually them? >> i would probably need to see figures for the dark web. i would guess it's not too many. >> in regards to the
constitutionality of the citizens of question, that's more important question to be asking and answering. it's pretty obvious it's not unconstitutional it's a normal thing to have on the senses. there's only been one internation and there's only been one that we did not have as a question in 2010 after barack obama took it off. when the left tells us this is not been in the 1950s, it's a long form version which was in one and six households. i don't know about buying things on the dark web. but i doubt that is prevalent. >> thank you,. [cheering] thinkable for coming with me
tonight. [cheering] >> you are watching tv on c-span2 with top nonfiction books and authors every weekend. book tv, cell division for serious readers. >> good afternoon. welcome to the theater at the national archive. i am the chief of archive reference services and that's a fancy way of saying iran these on the other side of the building. and david was scheduled to provide welcoming remarks today. he sends his regrets that he get up here but his presence was needed at another one of our facilities.
