It is just another example of how well Ramaswamy handles himself in these situations. This isn’t the first time in the last week that the GOP candidate has proved to be an expert at handling what could have been a difficult situation. During the Iowa State Fair, he gave another masterclass on how to handle someone who disagrees with his politics. At the fair, a woman confronted him about his stance on the “LGBTQ+ community.” “Well, I don’t think it’s one community,” Ramaswamy replied. “I mean, how could it be?” he said. “Just mash together an alphabet soup. Trans is fundamentally in tension with gay, if you ask me. But what’s your opinion?” The woman said she was “pansexual,” whatever that is, and asked what he thought about same-sex couples. His reply was perfect. “I don’t have a negative view of same-sex couples, but I do have a negative view of a tyranny of the minority,” Ramaswamy said. He continued, “So I think that in the name of protecting against the tyranny of the majority — and there are times in this country’s history where we have had a tyranny of the majority — we have now, in the name of protecting against tyranny of the majority, created a new tyranny of the minority. “And I think that that’s wrong. I don’t think that somebody who’s religious should be forced to officiate a wedding that they disagree with. “I don’t think somebody who is a woman who’s worked really hard for her achievements should be forced to compete against a biological man in a swim competition. “I don’t think that somebody who’s a woman that respects her bodily autonomy and dignity should be forced to change clothes in a locker room with a man. “That’s not freedom. That’s oppression.”

Ramaswamy nailed it with his “tyranny of the minority” comment. He is exactly right that we are allowing a tiny subset of people to dictate to everyone else, and it’s often a diktat that violates the free speech and free religion rights of most people. The Ohio-born candidate has disappointed others by refusing to attack Trump even though the former president is the clear frontrunner in the GOP race. After the Fulton County indictments came down, Ramaswamy blasted them as “downright pathetic.” “Here we go again: another disastrous Trump indictment. It’s downright pathetic that Fulton County publicly posted the indictment on its website even before the grand jury had finished convening,” he wrote on social media. Earlier this month, Ramaswamy was also seen defending Trump, calling the third indictment — special counsel Jack Smith’s charges related to the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol incursion — “a political persecution through prosecution … [of] the lead contender in the Republican primary for U.S. President.”

Ramaswamy isn’t the perfect conservative, by any means. He has said some things in the past that should concern conservatives. But he has been a great example of how to be a candidate for president. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
The corrupt federal police just won’t stop until they’ve achieved their mission: eliminate Trump. This is un-American & I commit to pardoning Trump for this indictment. Donald Trump isn’t the cause of what happened on Jan 6. The real cause was systematic & pervasive censorship of… pic.twitter.com/c1OpZNOl6c— Vivek Ramaswamy (@VivekGRamaswamy) August 1, 2023
