CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): Until you get on your moral high horse, every single person listening to this right now has said things and texted things and emailed things that could destroy your career, including the cancellers.

But let's get to the bottom line here, why is Jon Gruden not offered forgiveness? Because if Jon Gruden was worth saving, here's what they would do. They'd give him a two-week suspension to go to some sort of racial reconciliation camp — which, by the way, that's going to be the new playbook. As soon as all of the Democrats start to get flagged as racist, they're going to come up with this new playbook of, like, “well, he went to, like, a fat spa to go, like, lose weight" type of equivalent thing. “He's trying to get his life right, he went to racist anonymous and now he's back in two weeks" — like, yeah, OK.

I kid you not, that's going to be the new — because the only way — the Democrats have to find a way to exempt themselves from the very totalitarianism and tyranny that they're inflicting on us. And one of the ways they're going to do that is create this, like, racist anonymous support group through some sort of, like, well, he's going to take a little bit of a hiatus and he's back and he's found a deep darkest corner of his soul, and he realized he was truly a racist, and now he's going to be an ally of the anti-racist movement. 

But the real reason why they had to get rid of Jon Gruden is because he's a white, Catholic, conservative male who speaks out, and they know that that cannot be supported and offered forgiveness. That's the real reason this happened.
