25-year-old GOP candidate for North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, Madison Cawthorn, delivered a powerful speech at Wednesday's Republican National Convention from his wheelchair.

Cawthorn has been paralyzed since he was 18 following a car accident.

The GOP candidate's speech was concluded as he rose to his feet to recite a brief portion of the Pledge of Allegiance.

But the moving spectacle did not go down well with one leftist's journalist for PBS, who took to Twitter to attack him.

Yamiche Alcindor wrote:

"Madison Cawthorn made it a point to stand, suggesting that all Americans to (sic) should stand during the pledge of allegiance & national anthem."

"It was a direct rebuke of actions by ppl — including black athletes who are currently sitting out games — protesting police brutality.”

In Cawthorn's speech, he described the horrific car accident, which caused him to lose the use of his legs.

“Instantly, my hopes and dreams were seemingly destroyed. I was given a 1% chance of surviving," he continued.

"But thanks to the power of prayer, a very loving community, and many skilled doctors, I made it.”

“My accident has given me new eyes to see and new ears to hear; God protected my mind and my ability to speak, so I say to people who feel forgotten, ignored and invisible: I see you. I hear you,” Cawthorn stated.

He continued:

“In times of peril, young people have stepped up and saved this country, abroad and at home. We held the line, scaled the cliffs, crossed oceans, liberated camps, and cracked codes. Yet today, political forces want to usher in the digital dark ages," he said.

"A time of information without wisdom and tribalism without truth. National leaders on the Left have normalized emotion-based voting and a radicalized identity politics that rejects Martin Luther King’s dream. MLK’s dream is our dream: for all Americans to be judged solely on their character.”

WATCH:

“I say to Americans across the country, young and old: be a radical for freedom. Be a radical for liberty,” Cawthorn urged.

Cawthorn stated after slowly rising to his feet:

“And be a radical for our Republic, for which I stand; one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.”

But Alcindor’s criticism of Cawthorn drew sharp criticism from Conservatives.

Sean Davis Of The Federalist said:

“Show us on the doll where the paraplegic who managed to stand touched you. Madison Cawthorne may be paralyzed, but @Yamiche is the one who is a completely broken person, Only a deranged lunatic who worships at the altar of politics could get angry at the sight of a paralyzed person standing up. What a sad, pathetic way to go through life.”

Mollie Hemingway, also of The Federalist said

“If you thought, ‘certainly nobody could attack this man in a wheelchair for standing up at the end of his speech,’ you haven’t met our completely insane White House press corps, currently viciously attacking a paralyzed man for not sharing their far-left political views.”

Katie Pavlich of Townhall wrote:

 “Oh wow, hottest take of the night!”

Jeff Blehar, an elections analyst for Decision Desk HQ said:

“How on earth could you possibly turn the rather moving act of a FREAKIN’ PARAPLEGIC rising for the national anthem into some weird BLM trip?

'When someone holds the door open for you, is that a rebuke of BLM too? My patience for takes like this has reached its limit.”
