When I was a child my biggest thrill was to wake up early enough to watch The Bozo The Clown Show. The Grand Prize Game was the draw and I had never even seen a Carvel before, much less tasted the sweet nectar of a Cookie Puss.
Now that I’m a (sort of) grownup, I turn on a different circus to start my day.
Tucker Carlson created a side show on Monday for me by daring to be so bold as to question the intentions of the Black Lives Matter movement.
"This may be a lot of things, this moment we're living through, but it is definitely not about black lives, and remember that when they come for you, and at this rate, they will."
Listen, there’s no way anyone could argue that this is racist because… oh wait. Twitter is full of angry Karens and one of them asked to speak to T Mobile's manager to see where their company stood on Tucker's take.
Much like T Mobile’s cell service, this tweet isn’t connecting for me. The uproar seems to be about one word in Tucker’s statement. “They”
Tucker clarified that word by saying he was referring to the Democratic Leaders. I believe him because most people who know about BLM know who funds the (I use the term loosely) organization. I know what you’re thinking, and it’s not Satan. Close, though!
Now trending on twitter is #Istandwithtuckercarlson. The Minions quickly got into Crane position.
Rocky had a few things to say, and this one also seems relevant:
What is important to remember here is that BLM is a racist organization that spreads propaganda such as “ Israel is an apartheid state that commits genocide against ‘Palestine’”, or as any map calls it, The Gaza Strip.
Why would I even bring Israel into this fight? Because (shockingly) those who support BLM did it first.
If your movement is calling for the destruction of anything, especially because of race or religion, this may not be the peaceful protest you think it is.
Especially when that monster giraffe of a mayor Bill De Blasio is harassing (and specifically tweeting about) Jewish people for attending a funeral the same day that protesters are freely gathering in the same city to fight racism (and received praise from that Frankenstein).
If there are sponsors who choose to pull their commercials from Tucker’s show, I support that. I'm not some whiner who can't let anyone else have an opinion. If I don’t agree with a company’s politics, I don’t buy from them. This is great for me because now I’ll never know what it's like to have the shittiest cell phone service money can buy.
In the end T Mobile can take their terrible product and terrible world views and fuck the entire 5G off. I’m not going to let you get away from siding with a movement that is anti Semitic and not productive for the very people they are claiming to help. Oy vey. I stand with Tucker Carlson because this is America and people are allowed to reasonably disagree without being accused of terrible things.
