To paraphrase Orwell’s Animal Farm, All people are equal, but some are more equal than others. With the rise of intersectionalism, this is becoming increasingly true.
While I was growing up in the last phase of the Cold War, it never occurred to me that people should be treated differently based on ethnicity. Everyone should have the same shot at a good school, at a good job, friend groups could include anyone from any background at all, and the ones I remember growing up often did.
Never would I have imagined we’d come to the point where people were rallying under banners of ethnicity, pointing fingers at another group as inferior or evil. Well, maybe a handful of comparatively powerless and bigoted chuckleheads spitting hate and embarrassing their relatives at family gatherings, but nothing mainstream.
Fast forward to 2020.
Nick Cannon let fly with a racist diatribe ‘erasing’ (to use the left’s term for it) Jewish people and appropriating their birthright as Jews, while making some outrageously defamatory statements about white people.
The 39-year-old made the remarks during a June 30 episode of his talk show ‘Cannon’s Class’ in which he interviewed former Public Enemy member Professor Griff, real name Richard Griffin, who was kicked out of the rap group in 1989 for saying Jewish people ‘were responsible for the majority of the wickedness in the world’.
During a discussion on racial bias, Cannon – who hosts the MTV series ‘Wild N’ Out’ and ‘The Masked Singer’ on Fox- said black people are the true Hebrews and that Jews have usurped their identity.
He also delved deep into anti-Semitic tropes – ranting about history ‘going as deep as the Rothschilds, centralized banking, the 13 families, the bloodlines that control everything even outside of America.’
The two discussed the controversial racial ideology of the Black Hebrew Israelites – claiming that ‘Semitic’ people had nothing to do with being white and that the term ‘anti-Semitic’ is only used to ‘divide’ people.
‘You can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people. When we are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright. We are the true Hebrews,’ Cannon said.
…And I’m going to say this carefully…,’ he said before claiming that people who do not have melanin are a ‘little less’.
‘They’re acting out of fear, they’re acting out of low self-esteem, they’re acting out of a deficiency,’ he said. ‘So, therefore, the only way that they can act is evil. They have to rob, steal, rape, kill in order to survive.’
‘They’re the ones that are actually closer to animals, they’re the ones that are actually the true savages,’ Cannon said, adding that he was referring to ‘Jewish people, white people, Europeans,’ among others. — DailyMail
Nick Cannon says white people are "a little less," "closer to animals," "the true savages," "acting out of a deficiency so the only way they can act is evil." When does he get canceled? pic.twitter.com/vK3TBDW9i8

Imagine the outrage if any OTHER group was denounced as ‘closer to animals… true savages’ and ‘deficient’.
That’s precisely the languge of racial superiority. If you but reversed white and black in his rant, you have language that would fit neatly in Mein Kampf or a speech by Goebbels.
He was rightly fired over that. But notice the language of the news release of the firing itself:
‘ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism,’ the company said in a statement.
‘We have spoken with Nick Cannon about an episode of his podcast ‘Cannon’s Class’ on YouTube, which promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. While we support ongoing education and dialogue in the fight against bigotry, we are deeply troubled that Nick has failed to acknowledge or apologize for perpetuating anti-Semitism, and we are terminating our relationship with him.’ — DailyMail
So, are we to understand that it was JUST his comments about Jewish people that got him fired? Does this mean that if he had excluded Jewish people from his racist rant, he’d still have his job? It’s open season to call white people ‘deficient’, ‘evil’, and to claim that we ‘rob, steal, rape, kill in order to survive’?
It sure looks like the answer to that question is ‘yes’, doesn’t it?
Now ‘Charlamagne Tha God’ is defending Nick Cannon and blaming his firing on … the ‘Powerful Jews’. See how casual people are getting about this sort of language? Whatever happened to those oaths of ‘Never Again’? Have we already forgotten why Hitler is THE universally hated figure in history?
Cannon also praised Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, whose racist, antisemitic, and homophobic views are well-known.
Reacting to the news, Charlamagne said, “We all have freedom of speech, but we’re not free of the consequences of that speech.”
Charlamagne supported Cannon’s criticism of white people, saying that white people have a “history of mass racial violence in this country.”
However, he said that Cannon should have been careful to discuss his views about Jews with a Jewish scholar, who might have been able to correct any mistakes on the spot.
He also argued that each group is able to decide for itself what speech is offensive.
But Charlamagne also added that Cannon’s firing proved that Jews do, in fact, have “the power.”
“That’s what you can do when you have the power. … Listen, Nick is my guy. I hate it had to be him, but that’s what you can do when you have the power. And if there’s one thing Jewish people have showed us, it’s they have the power.” — Breitbart
Is Cannon repentant? Hell no. He’s claiming to be the victim. He had a long FB rant about he ‘will not be bullied, silenced or continuously oppressed by any organization, group, or corporation.” It went on from there and made sure to express that he blames ‘the oppressive and racist infrastructure. Systemic racism was what the world is built on and was the subject in which I was trying to highlight in the recent clips that have been circulating in my podcast. If I have furthered the hate speech, I wholehearted apologize.”
Yeah, he still thinks he’s the good guy in this story. He’s not.

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
