Vivek Ramaswamy, ‘CEO of Anti-Woke Inc.’ officially enters GOP race, vows to take on identity politics

The 2024 GOP primary season is beginning to heat up with another entry into what is expected to be a crowded field of hopefuls looking to unseat President Joe Biden and bring an end to his leftist administration’s war on America, and few believe that they are better suited to roll back the “woke” cultural revolution than biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy who officially declared his candidacy on Tuesday.

Ramaswamy, who some have dubbed the “CEO of Anti-Woke Inc.” for his willingness to take on the rabid ideologues who are now in total control of the Democratic Party along with the federal bureaucracy, laid out his case to lead America in a three-and-a-half-minute video in which he took on the left’s ability to use identity politics as a means to accrue power and to silence its critics.

“We’re in the middle of a national identity crisis,” Ramaswamy began in the video which featured inspiring images stirring memories of saner times. “Faith, patriotism and hard work have disappeared, only to be replaced by new secular religions like Covid-ism, climate-ism and gender ideology.”

“We hunger to be part of something bigger than ourselves yet we cannot even answer the question of what it means to be an American,” he said. “Today the woke left preys on that vacuum. They tell you that your race, your gender and your sexual orientation govern who you are, what you can achieve and what you’re allowed to think.”

‘This is psychological slavery – and that has created a new culture of fear in our country, that has completely replaced our culture of free speech in America,” Ramaswamy added as he made it official that he was entering into the political arena. “This isn’t just a political campaign, this is a cultural movement to create a new American Dream for the next generation.”

The 37-year-old candidate also stressed the importance of a return to meritocracy instead of an identity-based system where less qualified people are given leadership positions because of their gender, sexual proclivities or skin color, accountability in government, and the restoration of free speech which is being extinguished by the ruthless “woke” left-wing in its mission to remake America to its liking.

In addition to his video, Ramaswamy also announced his candidacy on Fox News, informing the conservative network’s viewers that he would be joining former President Donald J. Trump and former South Carolina governor and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley who have both already declared their own White House runs.

During an appearance on Tuesday’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the best-selling author and businessman discussed the ruinous influence of identity politics with the host.

“We are in the middle of this national identity crisis Tucker, where we have celebrated our diversity and our differences for so long that we forgot all of the ways that we’re really just the same, as Americans, bound by a common set of ideals that set this nation into motion 250 years ago,” Ramaswamy began. “And that’s why I’m proud to say tonight that I am running for United States president to revive those ideals in this country.”

He added that ending affirmative action, which he called a “national cancer,” would be one of his top priorities if he is elected, vowing to eliminate it “in every sphere of American life.”

“I think that’s the kind of courage we’re going to need to muster,” he added. “To go after these sacred cows, from woke religion in the form of affirmative action to this new climate religion which is completely shackling the American economy and culture. We need to take the most sacred cows of these alternative secular religions and I’m sorry to say this, take them to the slaughterhouse…”

Democratic National Committee Chairman Jaime Harrison reacted to  Ramaswamy’s announcement by slamming the son of Indian immigrants.

“As Vivek Ramaswamy uses Tucker Carlson’s show to announce his campaign for president, one thing is clear: The race for the MAGA base is getting messier and more crowded by the day,” the DNC boss said in a statement.

While he enters the race as a serious longshot, Ramaswamy will have an opportunity to influence his fellow Republican candidates by keeping the focus on the false cult-like religion of the authoritarian left that has not only infected the federal government at the highest levels but also is in firm control of the entertainment industry, colleges and universities, professional sports leagues, numerous state governments, most of corporate America and a propagandistic media that champions its destructiveness.
