We’re living in insanity.
Not too many years ago, people could make jokes. People could have their own opinions. People could think for themselves. And everyone could be different and get along. Your friend or family member has different ideas? No big deal.
But now, that attitude doesn’t even apply to strangers. We’re ruled by a mob. The cultural Marxists will crush you. They’re cool if you toe the line; but veer from their point of view, and you’re nothing. You’re garbage. They’ll toss you away, heaving with their vitriol.
Your only worth is the affirmation of their beliefs, to which some of them surely adhere only because it’s all they’ve been told. And certainly others, because they’re afraid to believe otherwise.
Queer Eye star Karamo Brown’s had a taste. Calling fellow Dancing with the Stars contestant — and former White House Press Secretary under Trump — Sean Spicer “a good guy” brought down the hammer.
He even had the gall to suggest this heresy:
“I’m a big believer that if you can talk to someone and meet in the middle, you can learn about each other and help each other both grow.”
Why be open toward others who think differently when instead we can all act like gigantic, mindless idiots?

After catching heat for his response to Sean Spicer’s casting on Dancing with the Stars, Karamo Brown is taking a step back from social media. As of Friday, the Queer Eye star’s Twitter account has been deactivated. His Instagram is still active, but the comments have been turned off. PEOPLE is out to his rep for comment.
Karamo did respond on Twitter initially:
“First, I have no say who is on the cast and didn’t find out till this morning that he is on. But I’ll tell you this … I’m excited to sit down [with] him and engage in respectful conversations. Only way things get better is if we try to educate those who have different [point of view] than us. But I understand how my comments could lead people to believe that I don’t understand the gravity of the situation. The personal is political. I’m reminded of it daily as a gay man of color. I know that representation matters — that it can affect change. I see you [and] I hear you. I’m bringing my personal message of love, equity, [and] inclusion to the dance floor. I want it to eclipse [and] triumph over divisiveness [and] hatred.”
I guess those things couldn’t eclipse it.
