Carlos Santana

Why Carlos Santana is the Most Dangerous Man in the World

A pandemic of sentimental goo has overtaken the brains of much of the general populace.

Repeat after me: tolerance is for people, never for bad ideas; and intolerance is for bad ideas, never for people.

Superstar guitarist Carlos Santana has issued a grovelling apology for comments he made about trans ideology during a concert in July.

During the performance in New Jersey, he told the crowd:

“When God made you and me, before we came out of the womb, you know who you are and what you are.”

Then he added:

“Later on when you grow up, and you see things and you start believing that you could be something that sounds good but you know it ain’t right, because a woman is a woman and a man is a man — that’s it.”

So basically, he paraphrased Genesis 1:27.

But God Himself cannot help anyone who insists these days that gender is a fixed biological reality.


Trans activists slammed the guitarist for daring to state simple truths in a world they are busy completely rebuilding on a foundation of unreality.

It wasn’t like Santana was being transphobic. To be clear, he told the crowd:

“Whatever you wanna do in the closet, that’s your business, I’m okay with that.”

So he doesn’t believe in gender theory (the idea that a man can become a woman), but he does believe in the inherent dignity and worth of every person.

So far, so good.

Not so fast, guitar man. Modern culture insists that acceptance means agreement. And so, facing a barrage of criticism for his comments, Santana buckled.

He wrote on his Facebook page:

“I am sorry for my insensitive comments.”

Just to be clear, those “insensitive comments” were that “a woman is a woman and a man is a man”.

I would add that the sky is blue and that water is wet, but I don’t want anyone to be triggered.

Santana said that his remarks …

“ … don’t reflect that I want to honor and respect all person’s ideals and beliefs.”

Bending Reality

The mental illness destroying Western civilisation is not trans ideology but, rather, a pandemic of sentimental goo that has overtaken the brains of much of the general populace, convincing otherwise good people that all ideas and beliefs must be respected.

So Santana wants to honour and respect all people’s beliefs. Does that include Adolf Hitler’s belief that the Jews should be exterminated?

Will he honour Mao’s belief that the middle class should be eliminated?

Is my belief that I should be opening bat for the Australian Test cricket team worthy of respect?

Does honouring and respecting all beliefs include a dunce’s belief that two and two make five? Or is it six? What if a dunce insists two and two is both five and six?

It should be obvious that you cannot honour and respect all beliefs without dishonouring and disrespecting yourself in the process.

It is impossible for Santana to believe that men cannot become women while, at the exact same time, respecting the idea that men can become women. He might as well stand on his head and on his feet all at the same time, while insisting that he’s floating.

His Facebook apology tour continued:

“I realize that what I said hurt people and that was not my intent. I sincerely apologize to the transgender community and everyone I offended.”

Spoiler alert: Not everyone hurt by things you say deserves an apology. That a person claims to be “hurt” or upset is not prima facie evidence that a crime has been committed.

When I was a kid, we used to say: ‘The truth hurts.’

Now we say: ‘If you’re hurt, we’ll change the truth.’

Santana is apologising to people he hurt by asserting a biological truth, and promising to honour and respect all ideas by no longer asserting true ideas.

It is well-intentioned nincompoops like Santana who are the most dangerous to society.

The culture will indeed be destroyed by crazy ideas, but not the crazy ideas you imagine.

The gender-bending ideologue is far less dangerous than the righteous sentimentalist who would sooner set fire to the truth than upset a total stranger’s delusions.

And so the entire world was set alight.
