Charlie Kirk's Turning Point USA tried to rally his troops after young people flocked to the Democratic party in the 2022 midterms by claiming MAGA youth is tougher than liberals.

That's all he's got. That, and the standard right-wing meme that right-wing people are being targeted by smears and slander.

"We are going to win. It's because our young people are tougher than the liberals," Kirk said pointing out to his audience.

"Our opposition is fragile. Our opposition can't hear a speaker without trying to deploy the shock troops." Kirk said. "Our opposition has not had to contend or fight for their beliefs."

"And yes, we can say, 'oh, yeah, feel sorry for us,' the persecution, they grade differently, getting kicked out of class, all of that, but guess what. You are seeing a conservative movement that is growing stronger the more they fight," he continued.

Kirk's rants are reminiscent of the AHS schools in Germany, where the goal was to indoctrinate young people into the ideologies of fascism.

That's the goal of the MAGA cult.

Hey Charlie, the data tells us that the youth vote during the 2022 midterm elections was a landslide for the Democratic Party, as the national vote for the House of Representatives was 63% for the Democratic party, and 35% for Republicans.

This year, young voters preferred Democratic House candidates by a 28-point margin. Youth of color, young women and LGBTQ youth supported Democrats by an even wider margin.

Our analysis of exit poll data found that young voters were the only age group to cite abortion as their top reason for voting. Other groups of voters over 30 said that inflation was their top priority.

That hasn't stopped Charlie Kirk's grift to continue at Turning Point USA, though.

In the 2016 election, the youth vote was much closer between the two parties, with Democrats getting 55% of the vote to 40% for Republicans.

By looking at the data since 2016, one can conclude that the far-right MAGA cult is doing for the left what we'd hope they would do.

Right-wing evangelicals attacking the LGBTQAI+ community, women's reproductive rights, and education with despicable fake claims of critical race theory and "grooming" has backfired.

Kirk, as usual, is forced to lie to his flock of penitents and tell them they are getting stronger, when they have actually become much weaker.

Can you help us out?
