America Fest is a four-day event organized by TPUSA from 18th December to 21st December. This event is taking place at a Convention center in Phoenix.
Thousands of conservatives and Trump Supporters gather to watch famous personalities like Tucker Carlson, Donald Trump Jr., Ted Cruz, Matt Gaetz, and many more. Turning Point’s social media posts announced the appearance of Kyle Rittenhouse at the event. People were the most excited to hear what Tucker Carlson had to say.
A 15-year-old girl from North Carolina said, “He’s an outspoken voice for the conservative movement,” about Carlson. She added, “I like how he tells it like it is.”
America Fest: Day 2 Key Highlights
Donald Trump Jr. was the most awaited speaker on America Fest’s second day. He started his speech with people giving him loud applause. He said, “How about a ‘Let’s go, Brandon’?”
The crowd chanted along for about 30 seconds, after which Trump said, “You know there’s another way to say that, but I will not condone that kind of behavior from you, fine, young individuals.”
Trump criticized the attempts to foreshadow conservatives. He mentioned progressive attempts that promote gender equality and transgender inclusion.
Trump made a sarcastic dig saying, “Just like when they talk about the breakdown of the labor force between men and women. Why don’t they ever talk about that there’s a grossly underrepresented portion of … female bricklayers,” “I think that’s a disgrace.”
Donald Trump Jr. also criticized the announcement of the Air Force giving equal treatment to airmen who underwent gender transition. He claimed that China is “Laughing” at the US for this decision quoting, “make sure you have plenty of transgender pilots.”
Senate President Karen Fann also appeared on the second day of the America Fest 2021 hosted by TPUSA. Fann talked about the Arizona elections during her visit to the convention center.
The former Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin, gave a speech on the event’s second day. She made headlines that she would never get vaccinated for COVID 19.
In her explanation for this remark, Sarah said that she is naturally immune to the Virus as she contracted it in March. She criticized the White House chief medical advisor, Dr. Antony Fauci, for his conflicting advice for vaccines.
Palin said, “Do you remember [Fauci] said that if you had covid, you would be naturally immune?” “So at the time, we were led to believe we wouldn’t need to have a shot.”
“Well, then they changed their tune. Those of us who have had COVID, they’re telling us that even though we’ve had it — we have natural immunity — now that we still have to get a shot.”
About The Turning Point USA
The Turning Point USA (TPUSA) is a non-profit organization that advocates for conservative teaching in High schools, colleges, and universities.
The organization was founded in 2012 By Charlie Kirk and Bill Montgomery. Turning Point USA annually hosts several conferences on various topics, such as the Teen Student Action Summit, Young Women’s Leadership Summit, Young Black Leadership Summit, Americafest, and Young Latino Leadership Summit.
The organization is famous for its “Professor Watchlist.” This site claims to expose professors that TPUSA says “discriminate against conservative students and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom.”
In 2017, the organization claimed to have representation on 1000 campuses. Journalist Joseph Guinto verified that there were, in fact, only 400 verified campuses.
