In today’s episode of “The Michael Knowles Show,” Michael explains the meaning of life, which for the Left appears to mean a worship of politics and government.
“Look at if – you make an idol out of politics – you're gonna be really, really miserable and you're gonna make yourself look ridiculous and you're gonna wear a Nike shirt to the Emmy Awards and that's not gonna age very well,” Knowles said. “Don't do that. That shouldn't be your God. There is something more and if you look up, you're gonna have a better time in politics and you're gonna make yourself look less absurd.”
Video and transcript below:
We've got to just skip ahead to the meaning of life. I promised you that we would talk about the meaning of life.
At the Emmys, which you didn't watch, I know for a fact you didn't watch them. Some lady who I don't know was wearing a Nike designed outfit on the red carpet, because she was gonna tell her message and she sums up a lot of what the Left and maybe even parts of the Center are thinking right now in America and I want to show the conclusions of her thoughts and the errors of her thoughts.
Here she is. (Plays clip)
That is the Left. They’re in their swimming pool. They're like sipping on their chichi or something and they say what can I do? What can I do that's meaningful? I'll wear Nike, that's what they're thinking. They've got existential dread. They feel meaninglessness in their lives because the worldview that they have adopted and adopted militantly deprives their lives of meaning and they say what can I do? What can I do? I'll wear Nike. They end up with these absurd ridiculous ways to try to give some meaning to their lives.
Also, regardless of their absurd politics, this does remind me why I like some showbiz people. They're so wacky. They just say: and then the drag queens came over and they put beads on me, yeah!
You know, there's just this kind of innocent sweet thing. I don't know. She doesn't seem like a political philosopher exactly, so perhaps she can be forgiven some of her political ignorance, but that really highlights everything.
You know the hosts at the Emmys, the SNL guys. One of the jokes was they said, you know white people never thank Jesus. They never thank God in their acceptance speeches. The only white people who thanked God in their acceptance speeches are Republicans and ex-crackheads and this got a ton of outrage. They’re so upset! Show me the lie! Show me the lie! Show me the white person who thanks God in his acceptance speech who isn't a Republican or an ex-crackhead. I can't find one. I don't know where is he?
This gets to a real point about the modern left, which is that they've deprived themselves of meaning. They boo God at their National Convention. They remove God from their platform. They try to remove God from their platform. They don't have a meaning on top of their life, so they have to find it in ridiculous places. They're looking for love in all the wrong places. That's the problem. If you want the cure to outrage, first of all take a look at the man in the mirror because you might be complaining about everyone else on Twitter being outraged but take a look at the man in the mirror, especially if you're on the Left these days, but also then look up. You know, look up.
The people who I know, we were at that backstage (show) yesterday with Glenn and Ben and Drew and Jeremy, everybody, and we were all kind of laughing about politics and having a good time and it occurred to me. All of us believe in God. All of us have pretty, I think every one of us has different religious views, but we all have a religious grounding in God in a theistic vision. Look at that. Look at if – you make an idol out of politics – you're gonna be really, really miserable and you're gonna make yourself look ridiculous and you're gonna wear a Nike shirt to the Emmy Awards and that's not gonna age very well.
Don't do that. That shouldn't be your God. There is something more and if you look up, you're gonna have a better time in politics and you're gonna make yourself look less absurd.
