Patriot Lifts Himself From Wheelchair to Declare: “I Will Never Kneel!”


Who could have turned away from the stunning scene of Madison Cawthorn, Republican congressional candidate, lifting himself from his wheelchair at the RNC?

In case you missed it, you can see his amazing display of patriotism right here:

What a patriot!

Cawthorn's latest campaign ad shows him lifting himself out of his wheelchair and standing for the American flag on a football field.

Check it out:

This just really goes to show you how entitled these professional athletes who kneel during the anthem are.

Here's a man who has to struggle to stand, yet he still does it with his hand held proudly over his heart.

Here's more on Madison Cawthorn and his run for the House of Representatives from USA Today:

Madison Cawthorn, the young conservative who pulled off an upset in the race for Mark Meadows' North Carolina seat in June, said Democratic leaders have "normalized demagoguery and a radicalized identity politics" at the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night.

Cawthorn, who was in a car accident as a teenager that left him paralyzed from the waist down, said his injury inspired him to enter politics, ending his speech by standing up with the aid of two people onstage.

"Today, political forces want to usher in the digital dark ages," he said. "National leaders on the left have normalized emotion-based voting, and a radicalized identity politics that reject MLK's dream."

The 25-year-old Republican has pitched himself as a conservative answer to "the Squad" — the group of young, progressive members of the House that includes Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. — calling the Democratic lawmakers 'agents of post-Americanism' in a campaign ad released this month.

If elected in November, Cawthorn would become the youngest member in Congress, a title currently held by Ocasio-Cortez.

“I think that it’s time for a young generation of patriots to rise up and try and take the helm and combat this liberal ideology that seems to have taken root in our generation,” he told Fox News this week.

Just to show you what trash the Democrats are, take a look at this report from Fox News that details how a PBS reporter blasted Cawthorn for standing:

"PBS NewsHour" correspondent Yamiche Alcindor was heavily criticized late Wednesday over a tweet describing GOP House candidate Madison Cawthorn standing at the conclusion of his Republican National Convention remarks as a "direct rebuke" to those protesting social injustice.

Cawthorn, who was partially paralyzed in a 2014 car accident and uses a wheelchair, closed his speech by urging Americans not to "cower to a mob," and to "kneel before God but stand for our flag.

"Be a radical for liberty and be a radical for our republic for which I stand, one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all," Cawthorn said as he rose from his wheelchair and stood behind a walker.

Alcindor, who is also a contributor to NBC News and MSNBC, responded by tweeting: "Madison Cawthorn made it a point to stand, suggesting that all Americans to should stand during the pledge of allegiance & national anthem. It was a direct rebuke of actions by ppl -- including black [sic] athletes who are currently sitting out games -- protesting police brutality."

"How on earth could you possibly turn the rather moving act of a FREAKIN' PARAPLEGIC rising for the national anthem into some weird BLM trip?" Attorney and National Review contributor Jeff Blehar tweeted. "When someone holds the door open for you, is that a rebuke of BLM too? My patience for takes like this has reached its limit."

"The activist below found a way to turn a paraplegic standing up in his wheelchair an act of white supremacy," Daily Caller reporter Chuck Ross tweeted.

Keep up the great work Madison and good luck in November!
