Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) condemned the growing censorship that Big Tech has undertaken against those who do not follow its leftist narrative, and emphasized, “Our rights come from God, not Google.”
Hawley addressed attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) 2021 in Orlando, Florida, where he received a standing ovation from the crowd, according to LifeNews on Feb. 26.
He also stressed, “Corporations are telling people what to do; these are the oligarchy and the liberal elites” conspiring to “impose their will” on America.
In his speech, he denounced the policies of “radical liberals” and the world’s “biggest corporations,” alluding to the never-ending struggle that generates confrontation, saying, “That has been the struggle of human history.”
Hawley was the first Republican senator to oppose the Jan. 6 Electoral College vote Senate vote to determine who would be president.
Over the state votes and the procedures for arriving at them the Republican legal team, which defended electoral integrity in the country, had filed dozens of lawsuits and some are still unresolved.
Hawley’s firm decision immediately attracted a multitude of negative reactions, with one of the most bitter attacks coming from Walmart’s official Twitter account.
Later, his family was threatened by the Marxist group antifa and the publisher refused to publish his forthcoming book titled “The Tyranny of Big Tech.”
As he reminded the audience of his advocacy for voting rights on Jan. 6, the audience erupted with approval by giving him a standing ovation, as shared in a video clip by the patriot who uses the Twitter user @FogCityMidge.
“UNBELIEVABLE!!! Josh Hawley gets a STANDING OVATION at CPAC for his objection to fraudulent electoral college certification,” she wrote.

Likewise, user @RozinaSabur shared the moments in which Hawley referred to the persecution he has been a victim of and stressed that he would stand his ground in spite of it, representing his constituents.
“‘I’m not going anywhere’: Josh Hawley, who faced criticism for fist-bumping the crowd outside the Capitol, gets one of the biggest standing ovations yet at CPAC today,” tweeted @RozinaSabur.
