CHARLIE KIRK (TPUSA PRESIDENT): We have a huge housing crisis in our country, the likes of which we have not seen in a long period of time. But, I believe we need to build horizontally, not vertically. It’s one of my speeches. Developers don’t like it when I say this, but it’s true. The higher the building, the more liberal the voter. It just is.

So, and – if you are – the closer to the ground you are, the more conservative you are. We should encourage people to spread horizontally and not vertically. Look at Denver. The higher the high rises, has Denver become less free or more free? It’s become a dystopian nightmare. You guys know that. 

Now, you could say, Charlie, that’s a correlation, not a causation. Think about it. If you’re on the 32nd floor renting, not owning – if you’re not in the weeds and in the yard, understanding what it takes to grow food and maintain the land, are you going to be more or less likely to actually be a conservative? The higher the building, every single study shows, they become more liberal over time. It’s happening in Phoenix, happened in Denver, happened in Atlanta, happened in Dallas, happened in Chicago, happened everywhere, and yet few people actually say that out loud. Whatever.

    1. Hello Nan. I heard that same question on a podcast. But the fact that tRump once lived in a fancy skyscraper wouldn’t dawn on Kirk’s listeners. Really when they think of tRump they think highly selective wealthy estate in Palm Beach Mar-a-Largo. Kirk is one of the same group all found and funded by billionaire Mercer to preach the never ending praise of the far right. Kirk’s part of that mission was to reach out and convince college students that the left was crazy and the right was super safe smart place for up and coming powerful people. While Ben Shapiro is still able to do that Kirk got too old looking to appeal to his targeted audience. He is scrambling since his funding got slashed this year to keep in the news to make himself relevant again. It is causing him to get a bit wild.
