ICYMI: Rubio Joins The Ingraham Angle 

Apr 9, 2024 | Press Releases

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined The Ingraham Angle to discuss the anti-male bias in national institutions, ByteDance’s ownership of TikTok, and more. See below for highlights and watch the full interview on YouTube and Rumble.

On Venezuelan criminals entering the country illegally:

“These guys are gang members, and they’re criminals, not because they’re Venezuelan, but because they’re criminals. Every society has criminals. If they’re in the country illegally, it’s insulting to the country.”

On Hispanic Americans’ working-class values:

“You see a great sorting out that’s happening, where working-class Americans that have working-class values, that live life by common sense, whose minds have not been polluted and poisoned by some crazy professor and some left-wing, expensive university, are gravitating away from the Democratic Party. They can’t cohabitate with this party, and they’re becoming part of the Republican Party…. 

“[Working-class Hispanics’] primary identity is not ‘Hispanic.’ They may very well be proud to be Hispanic. They live a Hispanic lifestyle. They listen to [Hispanic] music. They eat the food. They follow the traditions in the culture. But they are working-class Americans, and they are voting increasingly indistinguishable from all working-class Americans: people that are tired of seeing their jobs being sent to China, are tired of our country being flooded from people all over the world, including many, many criminals, and potentially terrorists as well.”

On the anti-male bias across national institutions:

“Every attribute that is a male attribute, from the time they’re little boys, is demonized. If you look at what’s described as a good student, it’s someone who’s quiet. It’s someone who listens to instruction all the time. That’s not boys. Boys are rambunctious. They’re loud. They move around. It is a natural thing. It can’t be destructive, but it’s a natural thing. And all of those things are under attack in mass media, in education, and across society. I do think people resent that.”

On the universal plight of the working class:

“If you’re a working-class family, whether you’re Hispanic or your parents came from Sweden, whatever you may make, you can’t put money away. You’re struggling. Your values, the values you’ve built your entire life around, are constantly under attack by Democrats, by the left, by these radicals.”

On divesting ByteDance from TikTok: 

“[TikTok has] hired a lot of people that used to work in the Senate as lobbyists. They’ve hired everyone. All the money’s on that side of the argument. But this is a very simple thing. Tiktok’s algorithm, which controls the entire app, is built by this algorithm. Not only does it belong to a Chinese company, it belongs to a company that has to do whatever the Chinese Communist Party tells them to do. For example, in a time of crisis, if China decides, ‘We’re going to invade Taiwan, we’re going to go to war with America,’ they will weaponize [TikTok] against us…. We have to divest ByteDance from TikTok.”

On the probability of the House ByteDance divestiture bill passing the Senate: 

“I hope we can get it passed. I think if you put it up to a vote, it would pass. But the real impediment here is procedural, because it has to go through the Commerce Committee. The chairwoman of the Commerce Committee, Maria Cantwell, has expressed skepticism about the bill. I hope she’ll change her mind on it. I know a lot of people are out there working to try to kill [the ByteDance divestiture bill]…. It’s an uphill climb [to force the divestiture], but it’s something that needs to happen.”
