cancel culture

  • claiming and interesting concept is in use... so do we sorta see that kinda thing here...



    If you have not heard the phrase "cancel culture," you have undoubtedly seen it in action. It is a leftist tool to silence and/or personally destroy Americans who disagree with them. It is most often used by liberal mobs to demonize a person or business by feigning outrage and demanding the speaker be silenced or run out of business. It takes many forms, up to and including violent attacks on the person, their business and even their homes and families. Fox News' Tucker Carlson's home was attacked by a liberal mob demanding he and his family move. Sometimes lawsuits or government action are used to harass a citizen or business to punish them financially or vilify them into social isolation to force them to comply.


    With COVID-19, this vile practice is expanded to ordinary Americans. Small business owners have been dragged by the left into unwanted publicity and public demonization. More on some of these examples later.


    Were this despicable practice limited to politicians, it might be dismissed as just an ugly side of politics. But, as we have seen, politics is now injected by the left into every corner of American life, which gives license to the hateful mobs of liberal foot-soldiers to drag even specifically non-political people into the ugliest part of political discourse.


    News has been politicized for years, with most major media "news reporting" just thinly veiled Democratic party advocacy, attacks on conservatives and reporters' liberal opinions presented as facts. Liberal purity is mandatory, as shown when MSNBC fired conservative commentator Pat Buchanan and when CBS News parted company with reporter Sheryl Attkisson after her reporting on Hillary Clinton's claims to have been shot at by snipers. CBS News' Catherine Herridge is now vilified by her fellow journalists for reporting on the Michael Flynn case. Education, particularly in universities, has been turned into a sewer of political correctness, speech codes and enforced groupthink. Current students simply repeat the demanded leftist talking points in discussions and assignments to avoid harassment and protect their GPAs. Sporting events have become leftist political soapboxes for athletes to force liberal views onto fans who just want to watch a game without having politics forced on them.

    Dietrich Bonhoeffer: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”


    Presbyterian Rev. Gilbert Tennant:

    “He that suffers his life to be taken from him by one who has no authority for that purpose, when he might preserve it by defense, incurs the Guilt of self murder since God has enjoined him to seek the continuance of his life, and Nature itself teaches every creature to defend itself.”
