North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson (R) delivered a stirring speech on Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas, Texas.
Robinson began his speech at CPAC Texas 2022 by giving thanks to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Then Robinson explained how he had overcome the adversity of being a poor black kid from Greensboro with an alcoholic father who passed away when he was 12 years old.
“Every strike that the left says I have – poor black with a widowed mom living on the wrong side of the tracks,” Robinson proudly announced. “But that poor black kid from the wrong side of the tracks was sitting on the 27th floor of this hotel overlooking the Dallas skyline as the first black lieutenant governor of North Carolina.”
“America is still the greatest nation on Earth,” Robinson proclaimed. “And I don’t care what these communists say. I don’t care what the socialists say. I don’t care what these blue-haired freaks say.”
“This is the greatest nation on Earth, and it’s all because of God,” Robinson declared. “He’s the one that made it all impossible. So we give him thanks.”
Robinson told the story of Civil War legend Army Maj. Gen. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain – the Medal of Honor recipient who defended the Little Round Top hill for the Union against the Confederates during the Battle of Gettysburg.
Robinson compared everyday conservative Americans to Chamberlain’s soldiers of the 20th Regiment Maine Volunteer Infantry that defended Little Round Top.
The North Carolina lieutenant governor implored conservative Americans to fight back against the agenda of Democrats.
“They’re coming up the hill followed by a whole raft of socialist nitwits, who believe that a baby in the womb is a clump of cells and do not honor life in the womb,” he said. “They believe that you should not have a firearm to protect yourself, but you should pay for them to have firearms to protect them.”
“They don’t believe that your children should be educated, they believe that they shouldn’t be indoctrinated,” he continued. “They dragging up that hill all types of things: CRT, transgenderism, this idea of birthing people – who in the world came up with that garbage?”
“They dragging up this socialist idea that criminals should not be punished, that they should be allowed to run rampant,” Robinson said. “That our borders should be wide open, that our police should be doing not demonized, that our veterans should be dishonored.”
“See those folks that are coming up that hill? There’s a word for them – they’re called ‘socialists.’ They’re called ‘communists,'” Robinson trumpeted. “I just prefer to call them ‘idiots.'”
Robinson lambasted mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations that are required to “keep your job, open your business, or go to church.”
The outspoken Republican emphasized that conservative Americans are cut from the same cloth as Chamberlain and his 20th Regiment Maine Volunteer Infantry.
“We did not come from a weak, ineffective jelly back people that when trouble happens, we find a safe space, and try to find a counselor to talk about it,” Robinson exclaimed.
“Americans stand up and fight for what they believe in and will put their lives on the line for what they believe in,” he added. “They will put their money where their mouth is.”
“And when the times get tough,” Robinson bellowed. “You had best believe that Americans get going, just like they did on Little Round Top. They don’t lay down, they don’t back up, they don’t quit. They stand up with everything in them and they push forward.”
Robinson advocated, “In November, we have got to stand on that hill, and we have got to declare to America that conservative principles win today and conservative principles work.”
He called for conservatives to talk to their families, neighbors, and friends to spread the “good story about what conservatism does.”
“We can’t be the silent majority anymore,” Robinson demanded. “Silence never did anything in this nation. Imagine if the founders had been silent. Imagine if the abolitionists had been silent.”
Robinson declared that he is “not scared of the news media.”
He said that networks such as ABC, CBS, and NBC “don’t have the answers cause they don’t even know what the question is.”
“I came here today to encourage you to stand up and be the king and queens that you need to be,” Robinson announced. “To study your Bible, read your Constitution, and carry those truths into the political arena so that we can save this nation from the socialist horde that is trying to drag it down into the pit of hell.”
“It is going to be up to you. You must be the leader,” he stated. “You must be the ones to save this nation.”
“In all the calamities, who saved it? It was the ordinary American who stood up and did extraordinary things,” he added. “It is time for you to stand up and do extraordinary things.”
“And so I say to you standing on this stage right now: read your Bible, believe in God, read your Constitution, hold them dear to your hearts,” he continued.
“Let’s sweep this socialist horde off of this blessed land we call the shining city on the hill, the United States of America,” Robinson concluded.

Robinson is beginning to garner a reputation for delivering rousing, run through a brick wall speeches.
In August of last year, Robinson presented a passionate sermon about the transgender agenda.
“You ain’t changed what God put in you – that DNA,” Robinson preached. “You can’t transcend God’s creation. I don’t care how hard you try.”
In February at the CPAC event in Orlando, Florida, Robinson called on conservatives to not allow left-leaning legacy media to define them.
He also touched on abortion, the Second Amendment, critical race theory in public schools, and socialism.
“So my fine leftist socialist friends, don’t be surprised with all of your machinations fail,” Robinson warned. “Do not be surprised when your attempts to subvert our votes fail. Don’t be surprised when your attempts to place mandates and demands through this virus fail.”
“Don’t be surprised with all of your efforts to indoctrinate the minds of our children fail,” he articulated. “Don’t be surprised when you look around and you see the flag still flying, and you see patriots still standing, and you see the Constitution still is the law of our land, and you see America still free and prosperous. Do not be surprised because the patriots of this nation are going to stand up, lean forward and fight back and win. And we’re going to do it right in your face whether you like it or not.”
