National Legal and Policy Center Chair Peter Flaherty was arrested this past weekend at the Berkshire Shareholder Proposal Presentation in Omaha, Nebraska. Before his arrest, Flaherty was speaking about his support for Prop 8, which the NLPC sponsored. According to Flaherty, Prop 8 would separate Berkshire from Buffett’s political projects. Flaherty sighted Buffett’s close relationship with Bill Gates as a primary reason to support Prop 8 and in doing so, reminded the audience of Gates’ relationship with globalist pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Before his arrest, Flaherty attacked Buffett’s relationship with Gates, saying, “I am Peter Flaherty, Chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center. If we had an independent chair, the Company would be less identified with Mr. Buffett’s political activities. He’s donated tens of billions to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. As Bill Gates explained when the couple was still together, “Although the foundation bears our names, basically half our resources have come from Warren Buffett.”
Flaherty continued attacking Gates and woke capital, saying that “If ‘woke’ culture is a disease, then philanthropy is the virus. The Gates Foundation bankrolls the teaching of Critical Race Theory around the country, including that math is inherently racist. The Gates Foundation offers a Gender Identity Toolbox, which asserts that gender is the result of ‘socially and culturally constructed ideas.’ This is a lie. Gender is not a cultural construct. It is a genetic and biological fact.”
Following Flaherty’s opening comments, a woman walked over and attempted to take his microphone away. Flaherty responded to the woman’s actions by saying, “You are not going to censor what I say, ma’am. I’m very sorry. And I appeal to the Chair that I will be allowed to continue. Sir?”
Flaherty wrapped his remarks up by saying, “Of Course, we know how much Bill Gates cares about children. He met and traveled with Jeffrey Epstein many times after Epstein was convicted of sex crimes. The Gates Foundation had a huge influence over the COVID response fiasco. Bill Gates defended China’s COVID policies and still discounts the possibility that the virus originated from a lab, even though U.S. intelligence agencies disagree. The Gates Foundation may be the largest single donor to the dark money machine known as Arabella Associates. It funds causes like defunding the police that are making American cities unlivable.”
A meeting attendee captured Flaherty’s speech and arrest on video, which can be viewed in the tweet below.
