Dr Phil Cops it from the Left on Twitterati.
Popular TV psychologist Dr Phil McGraw recently drew the ire of some of his fans and they took to twitter to let it all hang out.
They not known as twitter mobs for nothing you know.
And what was his big mistake? He invited Matt Walsh as a guest on his show to wade forth on (radical) gender theory. Not a good move they said. Actually those were not the words they used. They had a lot to get off their chests as you about to find out.
“Truly f*** Dr. Phil for this,” one tweet said. “Why would you invite a non-binary person onto national television just to be humiliated by an outspoken transphobe? Who is this for? Who does this help? Man, f*** you.”
“Dr. Phil is always stirring the pot. This is so disrespectful. Why does this man still have a show? Instead of letting the actual queer voices speak, he’s doing mental arithmetic to get through his sentence. I am fuming,” read another post.
“Dear [Dr. Phil],” one Twitter user fumed. “Please don’t ever live tweet during Ru Paul’s Drag Race & act like an ally again if you are going to have people like Matt Walsh on your show spreading transphobia to the masses. Sincerely, The LGBTQ community and their real ally’s [sic].”
“Dr. Phil you’re a scumbag for even giving this guy a platform to spread his bigotry,” Your show needs to end if you all are so desperate for ratings that you’ll stir the pot for drama while knowing it’s wrong.”
“Of course Dr. Phil would invite Matt Walsh onto his show…they are both white males who think they know entirely more than they really do,” theorized one Twitter user.
“Eric 4 Trans Rights” posted, “Say what you want about Ellen. At least she didn’t invite a bigot to speak on her show like Dr. Phil did. Matt Walsh shouldn’t be given a platform to spread his transphobic rhetoric.”
“Shame on Dr. Phil for giving a platform to bigots like Matt Walsh with little to no pushback. Trans people have dealt with enough BS (bulls***).”
And there was more in this vein. But please note there was not one rational defence to be found. That is because there is none to be had. The egos of them white men know no bounds; that a lot of women go along with them beggars belief.
Stay with me here; bad ideas left to their own devices should by rights cancel themselves; so ask yourself why this is not the case with this one.
Anyway there you have it, a montage of incoherent, intolerant spleen-venting spew. Enough!
Understand this; it was not about gender theory per say but the well-known conservative views of Matt Walsh.
The issue of ‘platforming’ or ‘platform scolding’ is a new one courtesy of the left.
Lawd help us.
Where no one should host those of different views, or their products. This is what the Joe Rogan debacle is about.
Here is what Ana Kasparian has to say.
“I wish the left was more confident,” We look weak with the platform scolding. I think we’re right on the issues, and I think we can change more minds if we speak to more people.”
Don’t agree with her there, the left is not right on the issues, she thinks wrong, nevertheless, the rest of what she says is spot on.
Ha! I ended on a rhyme. How about that!
