Madison Cawthorn, the Republican candidate for North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, drew attention to members of the progressive left, including athletes, refusing to stand for the country and flag, rising from his wheelchair and promising to always stand for the United States of America in a recent ad.
Cawthorn, who was partially paralyzed after a tragic car accident in 2014, took aim at both politicians and athletes who refuse to stand for the country.
“Are you tired of politicians who stand for nothing? You vote for these people to stand up for you. But when was the last time you saw a politician take a stand for anything?” he asked as he made his way across a football field.
The political class, he said, kneels to socialism, violent mobs, globalism, and to those who want to “hollow out our middle class, destroy our business, open our borders, and close our schools.”
