Sen. Josh Hawley BLASTS ‘Tech Industry and Banking Sector’ in MAGA Populist Commencement Address

Last month, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) gave a commencement speech at The King’s College in New York City where he put the elite globalist class that has bankrupted the United States financially, morally and spiritually on notice.

The populist freshman Senator pointed out the fact that America no longer works for the low income and middle classes that are the backbone of the nation.

He also pointed out that it is Big Tech and the Wall Street bankers who dictate the globalized economy, not some mythical free market that is preached by functionaries of corporate-funded Washington D.C. thinktanks.

Hawley calls for a re-imagining of a Republican Party as a political force that stands for the ordinary man, rather than the profit margins of billionaire globalists.

He urges for every student to realize their civic duty and stand for righteousness against the corrupt and decadent status quo.

While many GOP lawmakers and commentators succumb to the push by the Koch Brothers to protect Big Tech, Hawley has emerged as a leader on the issue of cutting these hostile Orwellian entities down to size.

“I will say that they, at least the major players, the big tech companies, are omnipresent here in terms of their lobbyists and PR outreach,” Hawley said in a recent interview to Fast Company.

“They’ve made a number of appearances before congressional committees and I think that they have been, to put it as nicely as I possibly can, less than forthcoming–Google, Facebook, Twitter, in particular come to mind–before committees, including my own committees, including interactions with me, which I don’t take particularly kindly to,” he added.

Hawley is more concerned about protecting the liberties of the American people from Big Brother than he is to living up to a free market orthodoxy that is often used to justify complacency and inaction.

“I think we need to be deeply concerned about the level of privacy invasion and violation that we’re seeing from these tech companies,” Hawley said.

“We need to think about more than just breaking [tech companies] up or making them smaller or doling them out piece by piece. We also need to think about the underlying model,” he added.

Although he recognizes the need for Congressional action, Hawley still believes it is important that the monopoly tech firms do not ultimately dictate the reforms.

“I think the worst action Washington could take would be to impose regulation that is more or less designed by the dominant platforms, and that only the dominant platforms can comply with, and therefore, that further squelches competition,” he said.

After Trump inevitably leaves office in 2020 or 2024, other populist, anti-globalist leaders need to emerge for the Republican Party to remain relevant politically. Hawley is becoming a leading candidate to take that mantle.
