Conservative pundit Charlie Kirk has a new economic theory when it comes to the cause behind inflation in the U.S. It's not supply chain issues caused by the pandemic, as is largely believed by economists -- it's transgender people.
Kirk explains on his show, "there's a lawmaker and a designer, and being Christians, we believe those laws were made to be followed for our flourishing and our prosperity.... Outside of the religious component of this, there are laws of economics," as Media Matters reports.
He goes on to explain that we don't get to "determine your own reality," and for that reason he both opposes transgender equality and connects it to inflation. "So there's a direct connection to inflation and the trans issue," he said. "You say, 'Charlie, come on. They couldn't be further apart.' No, they're exactly the same."
"They're the same in this aspect - when you believe that men can become women, why wouldn't you also believe that you could print wealth? If you believe that someone can change their gender, why wouldn't you also believe that money is wealth?" explained Kirk. "Now there are very simple laws of economics. Just like there's laws of nature. There's laws of physics, laws of thermodynamics, laws of biology."
Kirk conflates the idea that living happily as one's true authentic self is the same as printing money and increasing the money supply. So, by breaking the "laws" of economics or the "laws" of biology, there will be punishment -- in the latter case, that punishment is in the form of inflation.
