In Defense of Candace Owens: Let The Woke Come For Chrissy Teigen – She Brought It On Herself.

 When Candace Owens came out last night and called on Target to drop Chrissy Teigen, I was upset. Yes, Chrissy Teigen is a despicable human being. Yes, she is a mouthpiece for the horrible woke mob. Yes, she targeted young girls with cruel and harassing tweets. But we, conservatives, don’t engage in “cancel culture.” Chrissy Teigen has a right, as an American, to be as destructive as she wants to be. If Target wants to keep promoting her, it’s their business decision. And it’s up to the American people whether to keep supporting Chrissy Teigen – and the stores that carry anything she sells.

This was my instinctive conservative reflexive thinking. But when the article in defense of Chrissy Teigen came out today, I was even more upset.

“Teigen publicly apologized for her behavior, posting her thoughts (rather appropriately) on Twitter.

However, trying to destroy someone’s life for appalling things they tweeted 10 years ago, after they offered an apparently sincere apology? Isn’t this exactly the sort of reaction “conservatives” have been complaining about for years?”

Here is my question: how long are we, conservatives, going to defend and come out fighting for people that want us erased and silenced, – and defeating our objectives and movement by doing so? Oh, and in the case of Teigen’s tweets -wanting us dead.

First, there is nothing that Chrissy Teigen has done in the past 20 years that has been even remotely sincere.  So I don’t buy any part of her apology.  And, it’s not up to the author of the article to accept or reject an apology – it’s up to the person who Teigen wronged.  And apparently, the person agrees with my assessment of Teigen.

Second, my fellow conservatives – if it was you, who twitted something 10 years ago, or even 20 years ago, or during your preschool years, and it was you who apologized, Chrissy Teigen would not drop her attempts to cancel you. She would continue to insult you, and she would continue to demand that you lose your job, and she would continue to bully your friends into disowning you. So don’t come out and tell me Chrissy Teigen is now a victim of “cancel culture” and we must come to her defense. She is the one who created this culture – and she is quick to conveniently “denounce” it when it suits her purposes. Don’t help her, and don’t assume she is “sincere” in realizing cancel culture is “wrong.” She is shaming you for cancel culture – the very culture that she championed for years.

Cancel culture is the beast that constantly needs to be fed, and when it runs out of food, it eventually turns on it its own creators.

Cancel culture came for the Golden Globes.

Cancel culture came for Ellen – once a beloved liberal icon.

Cancel culture attempted to cancel Elon Mask – who is as far from conservative as you can get.

And now, cancel culture came for Chrissy Teigen – with more woke heads to roll.  As comedian Dave Chappelle correctly noted, “No one is woke enough.”  When cancel culture comes for the woke, the woke turn to conservatives to “save” them, shaming us for “perpetrating cancel culture.”

Don’t play this game.  It’s their culture – let them have at it.

Cancel culture will suffer a spectacular public demise when enough of the woke mob who created it will fall victim to it.

One of the most quoted axioms from “The Art of War” is: “When your enemy is in the process of destroying himself, stay out of his way.”

Written by Tatyana Larina

Tatyana Larina comes from my favorite work of poetry.  And that's the only time you'll see me quoting Wikipedia as a source.

I came to the US in 1991, lived in San Francisco for 5 years, and I have a Computer Science degree.  I worked in software industry for several years, later switching to a career of a full time mom, and I never looked back.

In my younger days, I wasn’t a conservative. That is not to say that I was ever a liberal – I was not anything at all. I had no idea that there were such concepts as “conservative” and “liberal”. I did not pay attention to politics at all, and the most political knowledge you would get out of me would be who the US President was, and even for that you had to catch me on the right day.
My first introduction to politics was during the second Israeli intifada in 2002. Unspeakable violence erupted in Israel. Every day dozens of people were killed. Even though I didn’t follow politics, that deeply affected me. I felt sad, frustrated, and powerless. And one night, I happened to stumble on an MSNBC program called “Alan Keyes is making sense.” He was talking passionately about Israel and the violence, and he addressed my feelings very well.  Since that evening, I turned on Alan Keyes every night, and by his commentary he was able to take away some of the frustration and anger that I had. It was like a nightly therapy session.
Feeling intrigued after watching Alan Keyes, I wondered what else MSNBC had in store. I switched through the channels, and low and behold, I found Scarborough Country. Right off, Joe Scarborough wasn’t what he is today at all. He was a solid conservative (as I now understand), making common sense conservative points. I found him interesting and engaging. Opposing liberalism had not entered my mind at that time. I still didn’t know anything about liberalism. It was just the things he said sounded very common sense and worthwhile to me. Imagine that at some point, MSNBC had a conservative host on the air. Crazy times, ha?
Exploring my new political universe, I switched through more channels, and one night I found FOX. O’Reilly Factor was on. From the very first night, I was hooked. I abandoned Scarborough. O’Reilly was not just common sense – he was aggressive, and he was a fighter. He was Scarborough on steroids. He wasn’t just talking – he was taking on what he thought to be wrong and unjust. Ever since the first time, and until untimely end of Bill’s FOX career, I don’t think I ever missed one Factor.
For forming my political views, and my ability to formulate them, I have to give special credit to three people: Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, and Greg Guttfeld.  To Charles - philosophy.  To Bill - realistic and pragmatic approach to politics.  To Greg - realization that a good joke will change more minds than a long lecture.
And for everything else, thanks to my family.

  1. I respectfully disagree its time to fight the left with the same tactics they have been using on the right for decades. If it results in a bloody battleground well as the song says let the bodies hit the floor
