Speaking to Breitbart News Saturday host Matthew Boyle, entrepreneur and 2024 presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy said that the “neocon establishment” is terrified of him because of his willingness to ignore their pieties and work toward peace rather than war in Ukraine.
That came when Ramaswamy, a staunch defender of President Donald Trump who is likely aiming to become his Vice President pick in 2024 by defending him in the media and on the stage, explained that he thinks Americans are tired of “endless wars” that cost trillions while achieving little of value for ordinary Americans.
Speaking about that, Ramaswamy told Boyle that the neocons are terrified by his speaking the truth about what is happening in Ukraine, saying, “And this is why they’re coming for me, Matt, the neocon establishment is threatened by the fact that I’m speaking the truth about this.”
Continuing, Ramaswamy noted how America is leaving itself nearly defenseless by shipping massive amounts of scarce and expensive equipment to get blown up in Ukraine in an attempt to defend its borders even as our own border lies open.
“We’re missing nuclear defense missile capabilities. We’re missing cyber and super EMP defenses. We’re using our military to protect an invasion against somebody else’s border halfway around the world, our military equipment, when we should be using those same resources to protect against the ongoing invasion, and it is an armed invasion now, literally, across our own southern border. I mean, that is the truth of the matter. And I speak that truth, but it really threatens the way the establishment, the republican party thinks,” Ramaswamy said.
He then blasted the attempted tactics of the neocons in trying to slander him, saying, “And they say you’re an isolationist. And they know I’m not an isolationist, but just like, it was with the left calling me racist. When the right calls me isolationist, those words don’t even mean anything anymore if you’re gonna use it to describe anything that disagrees with your orthodoxy.”
Ramaswamy then used that example of how the warmonger regime is acting to explain why it needs to be demolished, telling Boyle, “And so that’s the truth of the matter is, we have a managerial class that pervades the left most but also the right. And I think that I am really the biggest threat right now, to that existing, somewhat of a deep state within the right within the conservative movement. And we’re going to take a jackhammer to it. So what I’m doing in this race, and I think that’s where we’re gonna win.”
Ramaswamy then characterized the real enemy as being China, telling Boyle, “The Russia-China military alliance is the single greatest threat that we face. And so I will freeze the current lines of control as we did at the end of the Korean War. I will further do a deal that says NATO will not admit Ukraine to NATO, but Russia has to exit its military partnership with China. Russia has to remove its nuclear weapons from Kaliningrad, the region that borders Poland, and also get its own military out of Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Cuba, the Western Hemisphere near the United States that advances American interests.”
