Not often are people able to connect and communicate with thousands and thousands of listeners and maintain the sense of humility required of true patriotism. We are happy to present to you our experience with just such a person. In a rare and deeply insightful opportunity, our Editor-In-Chief, Gene Ho, was able to sit at the Mensa Libertatis with none other than the much-accomplished Scott McKay. As a social media influencer, Scott has taken up a mantle that few are willing to even acknowledge … that of Truth and Liberty, no matter the cost.
The man certainly knows how to make an entrance … when on the road, Scott commands the stage from the first instant as he appears wielding a battle axe in his right hand, his firearm safely holstered to his belt, and AC/DC thundering in the tympanis of the crowds’ eardrums.
Scott is busy traveling our great nation on his ‘Advancing the Forkin’ Line’ tour, but he was kind enough to let us know a little about how he sees the state of things and what real patriots like you can do to defend our God-Given liberties. He is a lifelong entrepreneur, but Scott dedicated a substantial portion of his life working within the halls of politics. Carrying with him the inspiration to make our country better than it has ever been, Scott lit out to the territories and shouldered various political assignments including grunt worker, campaign manager, campaign consultant, and Los Angeles GOP Committee member.
After 16 years, he was so disenchanted with the corruption in DC, he gave up his goal of public service and walked away from the world of politics. Being tired of waiting to get things done and blocked by other politicians who claimed to be allies but were only stumbling stones, he knew that he had a mission that could wait no longer … but the road Scott began walking was not without pitfalls. After many years of competitive bodybuilding and owning/operating several high-end fitness & wellness centers, he was in a catastrophic motorcycle accident in 2014 that left him physically disabled. In a situation where many would give up the good fight and cut whatever losses remained, Scott surrendered his health and wellbeing to his higher power.
Through his faith, support, and a mission more important than any other in his life, he went on to reclaim his complete mobility and is now battling harder and hotter than ever for those truths we all hold self-evident. His ideas are, of course, not without opposition. He knows firsthand that the elites who have seized the reigns of our nation are not trying to solve the problems, but to make the problems go away for the “Specials,” those in power who love to think that the citizens serve the government, not the other way around. Scott’s experience within the slow-turning wheels of politics gives him a unique view on how our government runs, how it SHOULD be, and how to achieve that necessary change. Scott takes a sledgehammer to this wall of opposition with fervor and righteous anger, but one man can only make a hole so big … that is why he recognizes the real power of Patriotstreetfighter.com is the support of compatriots, patriots who recognize the immense importance of returning to a life of facts, humility, and brotherhood.
Gene asked first, “What do the supporters of the movement mean to you?”
There was no hesitation whatsoever as Scott quickly answered that “they are the lifeblood of the effort.” He is the voice of the movement Scott says, but the real force and power comes from the supporters, the people who rally together in fellowship and celebration of freedom, but also with the somber purpose to expose those who would seek to destroy our great Union. He always takes time to speak with his supporters, but he realizes that the greatest part of his business is to get to meet like-minded citizens who share his love of liberty and the great people who support her.
He is the last person to leave. When on the road, making speeches, or talking intimately with fans and patriots, Scott enjoys being the “last person to leave,” making sure to speak to as many people for as long as he is able. He knows that the connection he shares with them is powerful, but fragile, and the ley line between him and others can only be maintained by ceaseless attention and care. Referring to an anecdote he recently heard, Gene asked Scott to describe his feelings after a situation that led him to miss an opportunity to meet and chat with a few supporters. They were ready to see him after an event, but Scott had to excuse himself for what he thought would be just a moment. That moment took longer than expected, and when Scott returned to their location, dismayed that people had left, either by their own accord or at the behest of the event’s security team. The idea that he might have left someone in the dark or feeling ignored by the lack of interaction was taken as nothing less than personal for him, something that he still thinks about and uses as an impetus to remember who he is really doing all this for. Distraction from the true cause and deception from the enemy lead to dissolution of the effort. Scott realized that he was not fulfilling his soul by just touring and speaking, but that battling to help save the country and his kinsmen was the end game of all his struggles.
