The media is super-duper upset because Tucker Carlson committed the vilest of hate crimes imaginable. He pronounced Kamala Harris’s first name incorrectly. And, boy, are they upset. They’re accusing Tucker of “mangling” Kamala’s name.
Mangle (verb): To injure severely, disfigure, or mutilate by cutting, slashing, or crushing; to spoil; ruin; mar badly.
Tucker pronounced Kamala “Ka-MAH-la” instead of “COMMA-la.”
That’s mangling it? All he did was emphasize the wrong syllable for crap’s sake. He didn’t mutilate, disfigure or severely injure it.
Show of hands, how many of you spent the last three years thinking her name was pronounced “Ka-MAH-la?”
Here. I’ll go first. 🙋♀️
I’ve been calling her “Ka-MAH-la” since the day she first landed on my radar.
In fact, I didn’t know it was pronounced “COMMA-la” until she jumped into the 2020 race.
You know, I told you this morning, the media is going to push too hard and too far in their efforts to white knight for Kamala.
Already their histrionics are at Spinal Tap 11, and it’s only going to get worse.
I would venture to guess that 80% of the country assumes her name is pronounced “Ka-MAH-la.”
But of course it’s racist, xenophobic, and sexist.
Now might be a good time to admit I have no idea how to pronounce Matt Gaetz’s last name. Is it “Gets?” “Gates?” No clue.
Do you know how often someone calls me “Dee-ahn?” Take the “E” off the name Dianne, and you’d be amazed how easily it trips people up. But I don’t assign nefarious motives or accuse them of mangling my name because I’m not a tight-ass, humorless feminist.
Maybe Ka-MAH-la’s sycophants should put things into perspective. It isn’t as if her name is Buttigieg.
Whom, by the way, I pronounced “Butt-a-gig” for MONTHS until the Buttigieg campaign made a little joke about how to pronounce it.
Then again, Kamala’s campaign people (and that includes everyone in the media) are incapable of self-deprecating humor like that.
Instead, they fly off the handle and accuse Tucker of mangling her name by emphasizing the wrong syllable.
But don’t worry. Not everyone who mispronounces Kamala’s name will receive the same over-the-top outrage.
There’s always a “But he’s a Democrat” exception don’t you know.
I’m telling you, at this rate, by the time we get to November, the news media’s all-hands-on-deck well-I-nevering in service to Kamala will even surpass their slavish devotion to Obama. Because like the stereotypical ugly American who thinks the foreigner will understand him if only he shouts his English a little louder, these guys will kick up the volume higher and higher until, by November, only dogs will hear their screams.
