(USA Features) Former President Donald Trump will deliver a defiant message to his political opponents and detractors on Sunday during the final day of the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas that the “cancel culture” won’t be able to shut him or his supporters down.
That’s according to the chairman of the American Conservative Union, Matt Schlapp, who made the prediction Saturday in an interview with Newsmax TV.
“I think the biggest screw you to the cancel culturalists, as the culmination of this CPAC in the big red state of Texas, Donald Trump to take the stage and tell the world that no matter what they do, they will not shut him down,” Schlapp told “The Count.”
“And I think that is the most important thing we can do to save this country,” he added.
Schlapp, who is running a summer edition of the Conservative Political Action Conference, went on to predict that Trump’s keynote address will set the stage for the 2022 midterms “to be a watershed in the effort to take back America.”
And in another prediction to host Eric Bolling, Schlapp believes that eventually, ‘cancel culture’ will itself be canceled.
“This is obnoxious, it’s un-American, it’s propaganda, and the people in this room – this is a sold-out CPAC by the way, Eric, and we put it together at the last minute – it’s an indicator of what’s going on in this country,” Schlapp saod.
“We’re not just going to give this up to the left anymore,” he continued.
“The left harangues these CEOs and corporations and demands that they genuflect to their socialist agenda, even when it’s not in the interest of shareholders and the company,” he added.
The conservative activist went on to chasten the mainstream media’s alleged pivot from reporting the news and instead becoming voices for liberal Democratic politics while silencing opposing viewpoints.
“These stations have just turned on anybody who’s got any contrary view, and it’s sad,” Schlapp said.
“They always try to say that conservatives are conspiracy theorists and they say that we’re peddling all these myths and everything else,” he added.
“If CNN cares so much about where people go for their news, why don’t they just go back to their old model where they covered the news,” Schlapp continued.
“And all these woke news corporations have abandoned it, and I really want to applaud you, personally, and Newsmax for not doing that, for going after the truth of what’s going on in America, and covering CPAC so fairly,” he said.
Schlapp also made some observations about where he sees American culture and society heading.
“We’re at this strange time where we’ve had the death of so many things: the death of fair news…the death of these elite institutions and our faith in them,” he said.
“We’ve had the death of polling. Polling is really gone and never seems to reflect reality,” he added.
