Greg Gutfeld: People in power lose power when we resist the traps they set for us


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Happy Friday all! What a beautiful show tonight. But first, a warning.

(Disclaimer: We must inform you that Greg Gutfeld has just had a medical procedure today and is currently coming back down from anesthesia. We are not responsible for what he says, more than usual, and we we apologize in advance for any offense – management)

It’s a particularly happy Friday for me because, yes, I just had an endoscopy. That’s when they stick a little camera down your throat to see how things work. Everything seems ok. The best part: This video’s ratings were consistently higher than CNN’s.

But luckily, they didn’t find anything scary. Except for Dana Perino’s class ring. Some diamonds are missing. But I hope my proctologist finds them next week.

But to do this procedure, they put me on a drug that knocked me out – so forgive me if I have less sense than Joe Biden speaking without a teleprompter. But at least I know what it’s like to be Kat.

Regardless, last night a debate erupted over Brooklyn Nets goalie Kyrie Irving refusing the COVID vaccine. Now I’m not professional badminton, but now that’s a big deal since New York City requires vax proof to enter the arena where the nets play.

So on Tuesday the Nets said Irving wouldn’t play until he got vaxxed. And he doesn’t. I mean, what the hell you to do?

Kyrie Irving: What would you do if you felt uncomfortable going into the season when you were promised that you would have exemptions or that you didn’t have to be forced to get the shot? // I stay grounded in what I believe in… it’s not about being anti-vax or being on one side or the other. It’s about being true to what makes me feel good. // I chose not to be vaccinated, and it was my choice. And I would ask you all to respect this choice

What’s interesting about this story isn’t Irving’s reasoned opinion, but how it affects the people who hear it. Now it’s a game of picking up shirts against skins. Check out the debate on this intriguing program – it features five panelists, and it’s at 5 p.m., but I can’t remember the name.

Geraldo rules are rules // this guy is wasting his life right now for no real reason and it’s absolute stubbornness based on nothing //

Greg: Geraldo you’re mad at this guy

Geraldo: I’m mad at him – he doesn’t just hurt himself

Greg: we play you – we play you

Geraldo: you are stubborn

Greg: no I’m not- I’m trying to explain

Geraldo: you are an idiot

Greg: you’re being manipulated into disagreeing with someone – it’s an artificial divide and we shouldn’t play in that – that’s what the warrant did

It’s weird watching yourself on TV while you are on TV. Don Lemon does this to double his audience. Either way, I’m afraid Geraldo missed my point. That the anger he felt towards Irving was not caused by Irving at all. It is caused by the situation created by the people in power, in order to create conflicts; to hold each other’s throats. Like Joy and Whoopi fighting for the last lightning bolt in the green room.

The elites try to wage a proxy war with each other through the citizens – and unfortunately it works. Irving was trying to focus on a shot in the net, not a shot in the arm. But Geraldo felt a real anger against him. The same kind I feel about Kilmeade when he refuses to return my swimsuit.

But the anger is misplaced. It is a fury manufactured by the establishment, which fears responsibility, and therefore risk, to the death. But they’re also terrified of you and me, or me and Geraldo – if we happen to agree. Which is hard to do when you look at that mustache. This thing is a whole different kind of 2 point pointer.

But if we all got along despite our differences in politics, health or height, it makes it all the more difficult for the aristocracy to control you and for the media to make money. People in power lose their power when we resist the traps they set for us.

We’ve seen how division is encouraged, through media accounts that aren’t true, and politicians who need a target. CNN fostered the anti-police narrative and woven it into a racial conflict that has since grown into a monstrosity of lies and identity politics the size of Stelter.

Others wish to pit the genders against each other because it creates careers in universities and jobs for people in human resources. They do it with gays and straight guys, trans and gays, dogs and cats, foxes and friends.

Conflict sells. That’s why every good bonding movie has a bonding villain. And that’s why CNN, The View, MSNBC sucks. As we jostle each other in the streets, they rake it with their click bait.

If only we would get along. Their jobs are disappearing faster than a story on Hunter’s laptop – and people’s power is increasing.

But now we are drawn into new conflicts. Vax versus Unvax. Mask vs no mask. Once you see how it’s ginned, you see it everywhere.

Take the NBA player: seriously – why get mad at someone you don’t even know, who is making a decision for themselves? Unless it’s something like talking loudly on a cell phone in a movie theater, in which case stab the jerk! Don’t stab the asshole, this is a joke.

But other than that, realize it’s CNN and the Biden administration that are trolling you and us. Right now, it’s pretty clear that a young, lean, and incredibly fit person like Kyrie and I don’t have the same risk profile as someone with a pre-existing condition.

Unless I know Kyrie dated Kat, he poses no threat to Geraldo, me or our families. But we live in an age of compliance and when you don’t comply you are shunned like Gerald Nadler taking a dip in a public swimming pool.

So whenever you feel angry with someone else and only have two choices – this is a binary prison of ideas – remember that this is a desired phenomenon created by a third. It creates content for TV producers and distracts people from the real shit that’s going on. Like crime, mental illness and my relentless SCI caused by ingesting class rings.

If we fight among ourselves, we cannot fight them. And they can continue to ignore the real injustice and get richer along the way. The warrants have therefore become just another tool to separate us.


But the media’s argument that there must be a deep-seated hatred among Americans sounds a lot like Al Capone’s safe. Once you open it, there is nothing left. And once you see it, you can’t see it anymore.

A bit like when you see Geraldo shirtless. Unfortunately, there is no vaccine for this.
