Candace Owens rips Grammys Cardi B spectacle: Something ‘more sinister’ than politics happening here

On Monday’s show, Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Candace Owens tore into the degrading pornographic “WAP” performance at the Grammys by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion on Sunday night.

Carlson opened up with a Dr. Seuss censorship reference: “Well, every generation decides what’s filthy and tries to ban it. The Biden administration’s decided that Dr. Seuss is filthy and your kids shouldn’t see it. They’ve eliminated Dr. Seuss books from ‘Read Across America Day’ earlier this month on Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Since then, the cultural vandals in charge of our own cultural revolution have censored everything from cartoon skunks to Peter Pan and Dumbo… all filth! Art, though, remains untouched. What do they consider art? That’s the question. Well, we learned last night [on] the Grammy Awards, here’s a clip of the only portion we could play you. … No more Dumbo. It’s too filthy. We get that instead.”

He aired part of the “WAP” spectacle on the Grammys that depicted a “lesbian sex scene.” Then he asked conservative Candace Owens what she thought of the raunchy “performance” after stating: “It’s hard not to conclude they’re intentionally trying to degrade our culture and hurt our children.”

Owens emphatically replied: “Virtually, what we were looking at last night was a lesbian sex scene being simulated on television, and this is considered feminist.”

“This feels more sinister. This is starting to me to seem like it’s not even left or right, it’s not a political issue. This seems like an attack on American values, American traditions, and you’re actually actively trying to make children aspire to things that are grotesque,” she intoned while labeling it a celebration of “perversity.”

Owens went on to say, “You have these kids learning about critical race theory, they’re learning that they should aspire to people like Cardi B. You see that fundamentally we are seeing the destruction of American values, American principles.”

Carlson ended the segment by declaring, “Totally degrading. And the same people who make it will lecture you about ‘you hate women’ or something.”

Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” performance featured an arguably x-rated pole-dance by the pair. Viewers were shocked and one anti-porn group called the performance “hardcore” porn. Some of their dance moves took place on a gigantic bed.

Grammy host Trevor Noah instructed viewers before the performance, “If you have small children in the room, just tell them it’s a song about giving a cat a bath.”

The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) issued a statement charging that the “CBS Grammys broadcast contributed to the sexual exploitation of women by glamorizing prostitution and stripping.”

“The performance by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion showed the two women and backup performers wearing thongs and lingerie, dancing on a stripper pole, and crawling around and twerking on a bed together,” the statement read.

“In a performance that could have been cut from a hardcore pornography film, CBS allowed a glamorization of stripping and prostitution to be broadcast in front of a national audience — a portion of which were children — for no other reason than for TV ratings,” NCOSE Senior Vice President and Executive Director Dawn Hawkins stated.

“Despite the ‘popularity’ of the song performed by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, CBS should have never allowed this kind of explicit performance to happen at the Grammys,” she said.

“Prostitution and stripping are ‘never empowering for women,” Hawkins added.

There was outrage on Twitter:

Cardi B tweeted her response to the uproar on Monday night.

“Conservatives been making viral tweets comparing WAP to the banning of some of Dr Seuss books as if there’s any correlations between the two ….Well I can DEFINITELY tell some of ya ONLY read dr Seuss books cause ya mind lacks comprehension,” the rapper wrote.

“When has a school made kids read the lyrics to wap? I get it wap might be a lil vulgar but stop comparing a sensual song to books that has RACIST content! How can ya not tell the difference?I see that common sense aint that common,” she tweeted.
