Jack Posobiec and Darren Beattie of Revolver News talked about the Vivek Ramaswamy phenomenon and how he’s doing he made a splash in the conservative primary, which is currently polling close to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for second place.
Posobiec asked Beattie to explain how the Ramaswamy phenomenon has come about, someone “I don’t think people knew existed six months ago.” a new one national survey Ramaswamy has tied with DeSantis for second place, even though the former has no background in politics.
“Well, we’ve seen this story before,” Beattie said. “It’s almost like it is an advantage not have been a career politician because you are a talented person who applies in some other domain. Vivek was a very successful entrepreneur, highly educated, very intelligent. His IQ is clearly working hard for him. It’s incredibly articulate. And not only is it articulate, but it is substantially articulate in the sense that it is giving voice to many topics which has not been discussed in our political discourse for a long time”.
“He’s been exceptional on the issue of affirmative action that’s now front and center on the political stage with the Supreme Court case. He understands, at a deep level, what affirmative action is and how it corrodes our body politic in so many different ways. And so he’s become a new kind of political candidate who represents a kind of meritocratic, entrepreneurial, Silicon Valley libertarian kind of politics, very conservative tech, very conservative Silicon Valley tech, libertarian tech a of Silicon Valley. expression right now.”
Posobiec chimed in, suggesting that Ramaswamy is filling a void in the political struggle that wasn’t supposed to exist. He said the conservative primary was supposed to be “DeSantis vs. Trump. Now, all of a sudden, we’re seeing Trump pull away and go into this DeSantis vs. Ramaswamy situation. How did it get to this?”
“Well, it’s remarkable, but then again, it shouldn’t be that much of a shock after the Trump phenomenon of 2016,” Beattie said. He mentioned that establishment politicians used to enjoy protections that they no longer necessarily have, given the prevalence of social media and alternative forms of media. He said DeSantis was “I think a very, very competent, very capable governor, but he’s showing that he can’t really hack it on the national political stage here, and he’s moving, and it looks like he’s going to be taken down by another political upstart.”
