(CNSNews.com) – Daniel Cameron introduced himself to the nation Tuesday night as the first African American attorney general in Kentucky history; a proud Republican; and a supporter of Donald J. Trump.
The 34-year-old Cameron defended Western civilization and its ideals; told Joe Biden that black people “are not all the same”; and explained how a simple cup of coffee is a common denominator in our diverse society.
“My values are shaped by my faith and by my parents,” Cameron said:
I worked at their small coffee shop, meeting people from all walks of life. And I realized something. No matter who we are, everyone needs a cup of coffee.
That lesson stuck with me because despite our differences, we all want the same things — for our children to have more opportunities than we did; to feel the dignity of work and to believe if you play by the rules you can make a good life for yourself and your family .
So the question is, will we choose the path that gives us the best chance to meet those universal desires? Or will they go backward to a time when people were treated like political commodities who can’t he trusted to think for themselves?
I think often about my ancestors who struggled for freedom. And as they I think of those giants and their broad shoulders I also think about Joe Biden who says if you aren’t voting for me, you ain’t black. Who argued that Republicans would put us back in chains, who says there’s no diversity of thought in the black community.
Mr. Vice President, look at me. I am black. We are not all the same, sir. I am not in chains. My mind is my own, and you can’t tell me how to vote because of the color of my skin.
Cameron described Biden as a “backwards thinker in a world that is craving forward looking leadership.”
He faulted Biden for offensive statements, warned he would destroy jobs, raise taxes and “throw away the lives of countless unborn children.”
Like many speakers before him, Cameron said Biden is “captive to the radical left,” which stands for “cancel culture and the destruction of public discourse.”
“They believe your skin color must dictate your politics, and if you fail to conform while exercising your God-given right to speak and think freely, they will cut you down. The politics of identity cancellation and mob rule are not acceptable to me.”
Earlier in his speech, Cameron referred to the anarchists who “mindlessly tear up American cities,” saying “Republicans will never turn a blind eye to unjust acts, but neither will we accept an all-out assault on Western Civilization.”
Cameron concluded his speech with a plug for Trump and Republicans, who “trust you to think for yourself and to pursue your American dreams however you see fit.”
