Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, in his last speech before the U.S. House of Representatives, gave a chilling warning about the future of the nation.

Cawthorn told the House that through the exultation of “weakness,” and the “soft metrosexual” at the expense of strength and masculinity America is being endangered.

“Our young men are taught that weakness is strength, that delicacy is desirable, and that being a soft metrosexual is more valuable than training the mind, body, and soul! Social media has weakened us, siphoning our men of their will to fight! To rise in a noble manner, square their jaws and charge once more into the breach of line to defend what they love,” the impassioned Congressman told the House.

He asked the men of America: “Will you sit behind a screen while the storied tales of your forefathers become a myth? Or will you stand resolute against the dying light of America’s golden age?”

“Will you reclaim your masculinity?” he continued. “Will you become a man to be feared, to be respected, to be looked up to, or will you let this nation’s next generation be its final generation?”

Following a series of scandals surrounding photos and videos of him in compromising positions the 27-year-old conservative’s initial popularity began to fade.

In 2021, this seemed to culminate in a rebuke from House GOP leadership and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy when he made a series of salacious claims that he was invited to “orgies” by DC insiders and saw people doing “key bumps” of cocaine in the halls of Congress as reported by The Independent.  Cawthorn was subsequently defeated in the Republican primary by Rep-elect Chuck Edwards in May.

In a subsequent appearance on Tomi Lahren is Fearless,’ Cawthorn suggested that he will be returning to the political arena in one form or another after taking some time to spend with his family. Stressing his youth he told Lahren that he could sit out politics “for ten years and still be half the age of candidates for President.”
