Nicki Minaj Proves How Fragile the Left's Narrative Actually Is

We talk a whole lot about the left’s cultural bubble when it comes to the entertainment industry. The culture is so strict and locked down that you couldn’t fit a piece of paper through its entryway.

But Nicki Minaj just bulldozed through it like the Juggernaut and now the media, blue checks, and even the White House are scrambling like a knocked-over ant’s nest to get her back in line. As of now, she hasn’t backed down. In fact, she’s holding her ground and even clapping back at people who attempt to correct her behavior.

In fact, recently tweeted a clip of Fox News host Tucker Carlson defending her and her position of not blindly accepting vaccines, and instead pray on it, decide for yourself, and don’t be bullied. This couldn’t have been a worse thing for a massive celebrity to do, and immediately, leftist personalities like Hasan Piker (the same “socialist” that lives like a rock star) tried to inform Minaj that he’s a white supremacist.

She responded by bringing up another complaint. She can’t even look at someone on the right without getting dogpiled, and instead just sit and be a good little obedient puppet for the left like they say black people should be.

“Right. I can’t speak to, agree with, even look at someone from a particular political party. Ppl aren’t human anymore. If you’re black & a Democrat tells u to shove marbles up ur ass, you simply have to. If another party tells u to look out for that bus, stand there & get hit,” she tweeted.

What a time to be alive. I never thought the front line of the socio-political culture war would have Nicki Minaj at the head of it.

Minaj’s rebellion against the mainstream status quo should be a light in the darkness, but what should fascinate everyone in the left’s reaction. As I said earlier, the scramble to get her to take it back is real. They even invited her to the White House where she plans to dress in Legally Blonde attire, and plans to ask questions on behalf of those who don’t want the vaccine.

To be clear, I don’t think we can count on her to be a constant thought leader. Eventually, this controversy will fade away and, like Kanye, she’ll likely be dismissed by many as a kook or her celebrity will envelop the story and people will forget it ever happened.

But, unless she completely walks it all back in some moment of weakness, the damage will have been done. The crack that started when Kanye rebelled against the mainstream will have only grown wider. It may not happen with Minaj or even the next celebrity that jumps out of line, but at some point, the cracks are going to grow too great and the dam will break.

The interesting part here is that it didn’t actually take that many A-list celebrities to do it either. Kanye and Minaj. While some other celebrities have defied the mainstream like Rose McGowan, these two are still revered despite their positions on things. When Kanye broke from leftist groupthink Minaj referred to and embraced Trump, that election saw the black vote grow for Republicans. This, of course, isn’t completely attributable to Kanye, but one has to wonder how many people were encouraged the think for themselves.

Now Minaj is doing the same, and the left is desperate to shut her up. Why do you think that is?

It’s because people follow leaders, and Minaj is a leader of many by virtue of being a celebrity. If even a fraction of her audience opens up their minds to think like her then this is bad news for the Democrats and their narrative.

The cracks are widening.
