Charlie Kirk quick to shut down guy who calls for boycotting ‘rigged’ elections: ‘No, no no’

Conservative activist and radio talk show host Charlie Kirk took exception with a supporter who called for boycotting “rigged” elections during a Q&A this week on his TPUSA Live Free Tour, telling him that “It is not rational to stop engaging in the civic process that decides who is in charge.”

“I listen to your show all the time. And I want to thank you for standing up against the woke Democrat mafia here in Chicago. It’s so important. And for saying the truth that the 2016 election was rigged. It was stolen. And that is why…,” the man began.

“No, twenty. 2020. You said sixteen,” Kirk interjected.

“What’s that? 2016. Right?” the flustered supporter stated.

“No, 20,” Kirk corrected him.

“2020. I’m sorry. I’m so nervous, Charlie. I’m so excited to speak to you. I’m so sorry,” the supporter said, correcting himself.

“I like 16. 16 was good,” Kirk joked, referring to the election of former President Trump.

Then the man launched into why he doesn’t believe Americans should vote in elections anymore.

“Yes, the 2020 election was rigged. It was stolen. Yes, no. It was stolen, right? And I want to thank you for standing up for that. And that’s why when the 2022 elections came around, I told all of my friends and family, I said, there’s only one way to stop this woke Democrat mafia, and that is to boycott these elections because they’re never going to hear us…” he continued.

“No, no, no, no,” Kirk said, interrupting the Chicagoan’s thought.

“If we don’t really stop from participating in their lie. It’s a farce. It’s a farce. And why should we participate? You said it yourself. Why should we participate?” he asked.

“Okay, let me – let me tell you why. So, I love the energy. You buttered me up perfectly, right? But I got to disagree. It is not rational to stop engaging in the civic process that decides who is in charge,” Kirk insisted.

“But it’s rigged. It’s rigged,” the supporter asserted.

Kirk proceeded to explain to him that not voting isn’t an option and guarantees that leftists win.

“Hold on. Even if it’s – hold on. Just one second. Even if it is rigged, okay? Even if it is rigged, going through a tradition of voting at least opens an opportunity, a chance, a micron that you actually might still be able to have representative government. What you are doing, respectfully, is a guarantee that you’ll never have a voice. The other side yearns – hear me out – they yearn for a day where we decide to stop voting ourselves because we’re so disenfranchised So, it’s a chicken and the egg thing. But the right answer is not to stop, you know, stop showing up and boycotting all that. It’s a guarantee the other side will win in that regard,” the Turning Point USA founder pointed out.

Unfortunately, the supporter seemed to have solidly made up his mind that voting was pointless.

“It makes no sense to me. It makes no sense to me just because, like, we know they’re stealing our votes. Here in Chicago, they say vote early and often because the Democrat mob is stealing the vote. They make sure they control these elections. We have no power here. There’s no point in voting. So I say we have to resist this. We have to fight this. We have to find other ways because we just can’t vote. It can’t be the only answer,” he railed.

“You know I don’t think it’s the only answer. However, the other side is salivating that our best and most reliable patriots…,” Kirk went on to explain before being interrupted once again.

“But they’re winning anyway,” the man dejectedly insisted.

“Will disenfranchise themselves,” Kirk said, finishing his thought and concluding the exchange.
