Ariel Pink on his public support of Trump: ‘It pretty much leaves me destitute and on the street’

L.A. musician Ariel Pink, who was dropped by his label for attending the Pro-Trump rally at the Capitol Jan. 6, joined ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ Thursday saying he is “destitute” as a result of cancel culture.

Pink said he attended the President’s speech on Jan. 6 and afterwards, went back to his hotel room to take a nap.

Articles were then released, falsely accusing Pink of attending the Capitol riot later that day.

“These articles obviously placed me at the siege, which I was not at,” Pink told Carlson. “And of course I don’t advocate for violence at all… I was there for a peaceful rally. That’s all it was to me. But there was no fact-checking or anything like that. 130 articles went out in the course of 24 hours. And the backlash was just… they succumbed to cancel culture.”

Pink’a label assured him they would not drop him, but a day later he received notice that the label was going to publicly drop him.

As a result, Pink can no longer record music or go on tour.

“It pretty much leaves me destitute and on the street,” Pink said.

Pink said his family has been receiving death threats all week.

“They don’t even know that I’m here. I had to sneak away because they were so terrified of me coming on TV,” he said. “The hate is just overwhelming. There’s new articles being written. People are so mean.”

“This is what I voted against. I didn’t vote so much for Trump, as against cancel culture and this environment that’s been blazing for four years is about to ramp up and get even worse.”

“You’re taking a huge risk coming on this show,” Carlson said, “Why are you doing it?”

“I don’t have any other recourse,” Pink replied. “Right now the narrative is being pushed and there’s not very many people who are going to let a counter-narrative enter into the fold. I mean there’s no nuance… I don’t know man, I don’t know what I’m going to do,” Pink said emotionally.

“I had no choice. There’s nothing else for me to do. I can’t even afford my lawyer right now.”

Carlson then asked Pink what he thought “the purpose” behind him being canceled was.

Pink responded, “I think it’s desperation and fear that’s driving this whole thing.”

“I think there’s been a very big effort to unseat the president or at least not let him have four more years, which I think is fair, I mean, he lost. And I think he lost fairly. I’m not disputing anything. Biden is perfectly fine with me as president. But I think that they’re still scared of something like that. It seems like they’re sore winners at this point. And people seem to want to kick me down as well, much like they have Trump. Kick us down when we’re down.”

“When reasonable people like you are destroyed, all of us should take notice,” Carlson concluded the interview.

Uvalde, TX Mayor Calls Beto O’Rourke a ‘Sick Son of a B****’ After he Heckled Gov. Abbott’s Presser

The vile act of politicizing horrific tragedies such as the Uvalde, Texas elementary school massacre, has been in full force. Democrat Beto O’Rourke “was escorted out of Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday after he showed up and heckled the governor in the middle of an update on the elementary school massacre in Uvalde” reports The Blaze.

Beto is a former congressman from El Paso, Texas as well as a Democratic presidential nominee briefly for the 2020  elections. During his time, he campaigned hard on his support for a mandatory gun buyback scheme.

The Blaze reported on Beto’s behavior at Abbott’s press conference:

As Abbott was finishing his remarks to reporters, O’Rourke, the Democratic candidate for governor, stood up and began speaking about the need for gun control legislation.

“Excuse me,” Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said as O’Rourke ignored him and went on about how “the time has come to put a stop” to gun violence. O’Rourke did not have a microphone, and most of his comments were inaudible.

“Sit down!” shouted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the Democrat kept speaking.

“You’re out of line and an embarrassment!” Patrick told O’Rourke, while others began raising their voices.

“You are doing nothing!” O’Rourke yelled at Abbott as police officers began to march him out of the room.

“You need to get his a** out of here, this isn’t the place to talk this over,” said Uvalde Mayor Don Mclaughlin, calling O’Rourke a “sick son of a b****.”
