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.

20 states suing Biden administration over migrant parole program
President Joe Biden has expanded a humanitarian parole program leading to a significant increase of migrants entering the United States illegally each month. As a result, 20 states have geared up to sue the Biden administration.
Tuesday, 20 Republican states and conservative legal group America First Legal, announced their plans to sue the White House over the legality of the administration’s parole program. The program “allows up to 30,000 migrants from Haiti, Nicaragua, Cuba, and Venezuela into the homeland each month” reports Foreign Desk News.
Reports shoot the lawsuit was filed by Texas, the America First Legal and the other states in the Southern District of Texas in hopes to block the parole program.
Foreign Desk News reports of the history:
In October, the administration announced the program for Venezuelans, allowing a limited number to fly directly into the U.S. as long as they had not entered illegally, had a sponsor already, and passed certain checks. In early January, President Biden announced that the program would expand to include Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Cubans, allowing up to 30,000 a month into the U.S.
The program also allows migrants to receive work permits and a two-year authorization to live in the U.S. and was announced alongside an expansion of Title 42 expulsions to include those nationalities.
In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs argue that the program is unlawful given the “exceptionally limited” parole power the federal government has, adding that they have up to 360,000 migrants that could be allowed into the homeland a year.
The suit’s focus is on the limits placed on parole by Congress, saying that the authority is to be used on a “case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.”
“Every state in America, especially border states like Texas, is being crushed by the impacts of illegal immigration,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement to Fox News Digital.
“The Biden open borders agenda has created a humanitarian crisis that is increasing crime and violence in our streets, overwhelming local communities, and worsening the opioid crisis. This unlawful amnesty program, which will invite hundreds of thousands of aliens into the U.S. every year, will only make this immigration crisis drastically worse.”
