NASHVILLE, Tennessee (LifeSiteNews) – Former President Donald Trump urged Republicans to fight for Western Civilization and American culture.
Trump made his comments on Friday at the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority Policy Conference.”
“The entire Republican Party needs to get tough and take the Radical Left’s crusade against our culture head on,” Trump said.

“These people are at war with Western Civilization, they’re at war with science, they are at war with truth, reason, and common sense,” the former president said.
“And in a very, very real way, they are at war with morality itself. Not moral what they’re doing, it’s just destroying everything, every fiber of our country,” Trump said.
His comments came after he discussed how he left office with a strong military, a booming economy, a secure border, and energy independence, which he said President Joe Biden ruined.
He also criticized Biden for targeting conservatives, instead of going after criminal gang members. The comment is in apparent reference to Attorney General Merrick Garland’s ordering of federal oversight into parents and other education activists who spoke out at school board meetings against COVID policies and transgender bathrooms.
He said Republicans need to “do something” about leftist extremism.
Five Tampa Bay Rays pitchers are now subject to a media witch-hunt after refusing to wear LGBT symbols on their hats and shirts because of their faith in God.
One ESPN commentator called the men "bigoted" for supposedly using "religious exemption BS" to say "no" to the Pride Month clothing.
It's time to stand with these men against the intolerance of the radical left.
SIGN the petition to support the MLB players opposing LGBT Pride
The careers and lives of the five pitchers — Jason Adam, Jalen Beeks, Brooks Raley, Jeffrey Springs and Ryan Thompson — will be greatly harmed if we abandon them to the cancel culture of their critics, like ESPN's Sarah Spain.
“That religious exemption BS is used in sports and otherwise also allows for people to be denied health care, jobs, apartments, children, prescriptions, all sorts of rights,” Spain claimed.
“We have to stop tiptoeing around it because we’re trying to protect people who are trying to be bigoted...” she continued.
Now they're trying to cancel people for not wearing a gay pride patch. This is always the trajectory for the Left. First they demand tolerance, then acceptance, then celebration, then participation. Learn to say no to these people or it will never end. https://t.co/02zAKDJx77— Best selling LGBT children's author Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) June 8, 2022
These men should be celebrated for their bravery, but instead are being derided for sticking up for their Christian beliefs.

People are being bullied into conformity by an LGBT movement that claims to be about tolerance and diversity, unless you're a devout Christian.
“Now they’re trying to cancel people for not wearing a gay pride patch,” the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh remarked.
“This is always the trajectory for the Left. First they demand tolerance, then acceptance, then celebration, then participation. Learn to say no to these people or it will never end.”
It's hard to imagine sports columnists like Nancy Armour of USA Today attacking Muslims for their rejection of Pride propaganda, but she sees no problem in attacking these devout Christians.
Oh for God’s sake. These folks who bastardize religion to suit their bigotry would do well to actually READ the New Testament. I’d recommend starting with Matthew. https://t.co/qAK875xDhZ— Nancy Armour (@nrarmour) June 5, 2022
We hope Nancy Armour's reading of the New Testament extends to Romans 1:25-27.
Most commentators simply don't understand that loving everyone as a Christian means telling people certain actions are extremely harmful to the soul.
SIGN: These men were right to reject the LGBT Pride insignias on their hats and jerseys.
Indeed, by peeling off the rainbow logo from their jerseys and wearing the standard team hat, the five pitchers have taken a stand against an ideology that's antithetical to Christianity.
Major League Baseball (MLB) and every other professional sports league have promoted LGBTQ causes in recent years, including showcasing a “marriage” proposal between two homosexuals in front of a stadium packed with families.
Sports are no longer safe from the tenticles of the LGBT movement, with players being strong-armed into virtue signaling for causes they disagree with.
It's time for people to stand up and say "Enough".
SIGN the petition and play your part in resisting the advances of intolerant wokeism into every sphere of public life.
Thank you for signing and sharing this petition.

Trump noted that he created the 1776 Commission to promote an understanding of American’s founding and culture while also banning Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the federal government. But, Trump noted, “Biden repealed those executive orders then aggressively pushed woke, left-wing racism into every part government, from the Department of Education to the U.S. military where I had just ended it.”
He said that a Republican Congress and president must stop CRT and woke politics.
Biden has pushed liberal politics into the military, as Trump noted. He recently fulfilled an LGBT agenda item to let HIV+ individuals continue to serve in the military and deploy.
The Department of Defense also created training documents that identify opposition to abortion and the LGBTQ agenda as characteristics of a possible extremist. The military also identified traditionally Catholic views on gender and feminism as signs of extremism.
Biden also reversed the prohibition on gender-confused individuals serving in the military just days after taking office.
