Speaking at the conservative Faith & Freedom group's 'Road to Majority' conference on Friday, former US Vice President Mike Pence took verbal shots at cancel culture, critical race theory, described them as "Democrat majorities on Capitol Hill", "censoring free speech" and other topics.

"After 148 days of the Biden admin & Washington Dems pushing open borders, higher taxes, runaway spending, defunding the police, abortion on demand, censoring free speech, canceling our liberties—it is time to end Democrat majorities on Capitol Hill!", Pence declared in a Twitter tirade following his remarks to the Washington political action group.

During his talk, Pence addressed calls to defund police, asserting that it was liberal attacks on the US policing system that prompted the rise in murders in the largest American cities. He also talked about racial injustice in policing, suggesting that police must be defended and the lives of "law-abiding citizens of every race, creed, and color" should be put first.

"Black lives are not endangered by police. Black lives are saved by police every day. We don’t need to defund the police. We need to DEFEND the police and put the lives of law-abiding citizens of every race, creed, and color FIRST," Pence said.

He also addressed the notorious phenomenon of 'cancel culture.'

"We will not be silent in the face of Cancel Culture", he said, adding, "we will reject every effort to marginalize Christians and Conservatives, we will expose religious persecution masquerading as a quest for equal rights, and we will demand that government agencies, our military and our public schools reject Critical Race Theory in every form!"

The former vice president lashed out at Biden administration policy, offering that Biden's cabinet stood for the "wholehearted embrace of the radical left's all-encompassing assault on American culture and values."

The Trump-era official particularly sounded an alarm to "retire Chuck Schumer & Nancy Pelosi from leadership once & for all."
