North Carolina -- July 8, 2024: On June 30, 2024, Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson delivered a speech at Lake Church in

North Carolina that drew significant attention and controversy. Robinson made several remarks emphasizing traditional gender roles, stating, "We are called to be led by men," and critiqued the social justice movement. His comments sparked a heated debate about misogyny and the role of men and women in leadership.

At one point during his speech, Robinson made an analogy between the struggles of 21st-century politics and World War II, saying:   

“We now find ourselves struggling with people who have evil intent. You know there was a time when we used to meet evil on the battlefield and guess what we did to it? We killed it. We didn’t quibble about it, we didn’t argue about it, we didn’t fight about it, we killed it! When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, we flew to Japan, and we killed the Japanese Army and Navy. We didn’t even quibble about it. ‘I didn’t start this fight, you did! You wanna be left alone, you shoulda left me alone.’ We didn’t argue and capitulate and talk about, ‘Well, maybe we shouldn’t fight the Nazis that hard.’ No, they’re bad; kill them. Some liberal somewhere is gonna say that’s awful. Too bad! Get mad at me if you want to. Some folks need killing.”

The speech led to widespread criticism and accusations of promoting violence. In response to the controversy, Robinson defended his comments, stating they were meant to highlight the importance of strong leadership and decisive action against evil.
