Posobiec, who received the Allen W. Dulles Award, gave his assessment of the current situation of conservatism in America. "We are at war," he said, "we are in a new type of war. A fifth generational conflict."
He did not mean a war "on the field of battle," but one fought digitally, on social and online media platforms, for the hearts, souls, and minds of Americans.
"This is a generational conflict that is fought in the heart, that is fought in the mind, that is fought in the soul, on a spritual level. This is spiritual warfare, it is mental warfare, and it is information warfare. This is what we're in.
"This war is fought on tiny little screens like this," he said, holding up his phone, "every day. This war is fought in the grocery stores, in the classrooms, airplanes, trains, public spaces, and commons.
"Mass social engineering, which has created mass formation psychosis," he said, noting that in New York, the lockdowns and restrictions under former Governor Andrew Cuomo were particularly harsh.
New York City saw mask and vaccine mandates that shut adults and children alike out of restaurants, workplaces, cultural institutions, and public life if they did not or were not able to comply.
"Today's warfare is not the warfare of sword and shield. It is the warfare of tweet and meme. It is the warfare of words. It is the warfare of narratives," Posobiec said.
He referenced the drop of the Twitter Files, still ongoing, which show what was going on behind the scenes at the most powerful social media platform for media and discourse. Through these files, the public has learned that the left-leaning bias of Twitter executives, as well as having been pushed by the FBI, led them to censor, suppress and deplatform conservatives simply for disagreeing with the Democrat-driven narratives on Covid, gender identity, critical race theory, election integrity, and a host of other issues.
"Elon Musk didn't just purchase a social media platform," Posobiec said, attributing the initial coining of the phrase to both himself and Steve Bannon, "he purchased a crime scene." Musk had tweeted out that very same thing on Saturday.
Posobiec took aim at former Head of Trust and Safety Yoel Roth, saying he was an asset of the security state. Roth had been taking weekly meetings with the FBI to discuss law enforcement concerns for content on the platform.
"He censored every single person in this room at least once, and banned the sitting President of the United States of America Donald J. Trump."
"The last line of defense before this singularity," Posobiec said, "is free and original thought. The real estate between your ears—that is the battle space for which we fight. Because for the propaganda ministers and the Edward Bernayses of the world to win, they must silence thier opposition."
Those he was speaking to, he said to crowd cheers, would not be silenced. "The most powerful weapon in this fight ... is the law of God and the free will he gave all of us to use our voices to speak the truth of the almighty creator."
"We are at war, and I aim to win it," he said, ending with the call "God save the republic."
