Are government agencies being weaponized against the American people?
Dave Rubin sat down with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) to discuss government overreach, and they all certainly think so.
Jordan brings up the government’s crackdown on private businesses like Twitter, saying “When did the government get that business?”
Byron explains that the reason government agencies are being weaponized is because “you have these subgroups that exist where their entire purpose is to play gotcha with the weight of the federal government or to suppress, or to dissuade, or to diminish thought process, idea, etc.”
“Here’s what I would say to the Democrats now,” he says. “If you truly believe in protecting the soul of America, if you truly believe in saving democracy, you can’t allow elements of our government to suppress speech of the American people. It cannot be allowed.”
Rubin says it seems like “Republicans are starting to wake up,” asking Jordan and Donalds, “Are you hopeful for that?”
Jordan replies, “I am,” explaining that it’s not just Republicans who are starting to wake up, but the other side of the aisle as well. “Look, we’ve seen so many agencies turned on the American people,” he says.
But Donalds believes conservatives are the ones trying to save America.
“We are the ones trying to frankly save the soul of America. We’re the ones trying to save everybody’s constitutional rights and liberties. It’s not the left, and when you go into their shows, into their wheelhouse, and you talk about that stuff, it shows.”
