Part of Kari Lake’s Speech at CPAC in Maryland—
Submitted by Angela Godac
“They may think that they won, but, I know they’re feeling the heat, they’re, they’re actually, we’ve got them in the frying pan and right now, this is true, and I’m going to tell you why. I can’t believe this actually happened and I wasn’t sure if I was going to share it here at CPAC. I wonder if the fake news will even cover this.
“Something happened to me this week before I left for CPAC and it shows just how desperate these people are to stop me and to silence you. I decided to share this, it’s a little bit controversial but I’m going to put this out. Somebody showed up at my door this week. They called me before and said, ‘I gotta talk to you in person. This can’t be done over the phone’, which is always kinda like, uh-oh, what’s that gonna be about. They came to my door and they tried to bribe me out of getting out of politics. This really happened. I’m telling you this because this is how disgusting politics is. A mom who runs for office and they’re afraid of me? They tried to bribe me with a job title, with a huge salary, a position on a board. This is how they do it. And I said, ‘Are you kidding me? I walked away from a big job and a big salary, I’m not motivated by that stuff guys. I’m not.’
“So, this person standing before me was
sent at the request of some powerful people back East. They want me out of politics. Oh, wait a minute…I thought they already stopped us! Why are they so afraid? I thought they already stopped our movement (shouting and applause from the audience). Well, I don’t know, I don’t know what the future holds, I don’t know, I’m just on God’s time right now. And when I said ‘no’ to this person, they didn’t take no for an answer. They said, ‘Well, what will it take? What is your price, how do we keep you out? Name your price.’ This really happened this week. ‘Name your price. All we’re asking for you to do, is to get out of politics for two years.’
“Okay, CPAC, I gotta ask you, do you think I should sit out for two years? (Audience—’NO!’ Should we put our movement on ice for two years? (Audience—’NO!’) I didn’t think so. Or should we double down and stay in this? Double down! I’m going to be honest, at that very moment, I wanted to sic my dog on him. (Laughter) But I have a Pug and it wasn’t going to happen. So I said, ‘You let your handlers back east know that I can’t name a price because there is no price that I would sell out my country for. Not a million dollars, not $10,000,000, not a $100,000,000. (someone in the audience, ‘We love you, Kari!!). I love you right back.
“But I tell you, this tells me that they do not want my name on a ballot again. And I have a message, I’m not going anywhere. I’m not going anywhere. And so, that got me very fired up. I was packing for CPAC and this happened and I’m like, I’m so fired up, and then after this weekend at CPAC, CPAC has a way of firing up us again, right?”
