Just like professing one’s faith in Christianity is becoming more and more controversial thanks to wokeness and changing societal norms, now it’s becoming controversial to suggest that obviously good things are good, as Terry Crews found out when he said that people need fathers and exercise…an obviously true statement that led the wokies to attack him.
The background is that Crews tweeted about fatherhood following an Obama speech, as the Atlanta Black Star reported, saying:
The star of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” was thrust into the discussion after initially tweeting about former President Barack Obama’s message to Black boys.
“If you are really confident about your financial situation, you are probably not going to be wearing a eight-pound chain around your neck,” Obama said to a crowd of boys in Oakland, California, Feb. 19. “Because, ‘Oh, I got a bank account.’ I don’t have to show you how much I got. I feel good.”
Crews weighed in on the matter after Derecka Purnell, a woman, wrote an op-ed on the speech for The New York Times.
“Another thing that bothers me is that this OP-ED was written by a WOMAN about how boys should be taught to grow into successful young men,” he tweeted Feb. 24. “How would she know? MEN NEED TO HOLD OTHER MEN ACCOUNTABLE.”
He followed up by saying, “I REPEAT: Women can speak with us. Just not FOR US,” when a Twitter user said it was “counter productive” to kick women out of the conversation
He then tweeted out a video of an appearance of his on “The View” in which he said:
“There are things that you need from your father. Your father starts out he gives you your name, he tells you who you are… He gives you your inheritance and that doesn’t mean money. You inherit his story. … Your father gives you … your security. … I’m talking about your confidence. Because when your father tells you, you can do something, you believe that you can do it.”

Well, predictably, the wokies came for him with their knives out, furious that he would dare to suggest that kids need fathers. Crews, however, refused to back down. Instead he tweeted about standing by his comments, saying:
Human beings need exercise.
FUCK you! I don’t exercise! I have NEVER exercised and I’m fine! My kids CAN’T exercise because they were hurt so now you’re mocking them! I demand you take that back and apologize! Terry Crews do better.
He also said:
I have another very controversial statement to make, and I will since I’m “canceled” anyway.
As a human being there are things you can only get from your mother.
Louder with Crowder made an excellent point about why what Crews did was right and important, saying:
There’s nothing wrong with apologies if you’re wrong. Apologizing gets silly when your publicist sends out an apology on your behalf to anyone who was offended by the thing you said that wasn’t really offensive. There was one thing Crews apologized for, because the way it was worded wasn’t his intention. But the rest of Terry does not back down.
This is how it’s done. Outrage culture only controls you if you reward it for its outrage. It’s like dealing with children. If you give your kid a cookie every time they cry for a cookie, they’re just going to demand more cookies. You need to show them who’s boss, slap them upside the head next time they ask for a Thin Mint.
