Cancel Culture is real

Just ask Ms. Bari Weiss, formerly of the NY Times.

By the Cornell U. founder of “Legal Insurrection”

During his July 4, 2020 speech at Mount Rushmore, President Donald Trump referred to the “political weapon” of “cancel culture,” describing it as “driving people from their jobs, shaming dissenters, and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees.”

Trump’s cancel culture reference was scorned by liberal media outlets such as The New York Times, calling such “culture war” comments a “straw-man version of the left.” Similarly, liberal writer Judd Legum dismissed claims of “cancel culture” as “something that does not exist.”

Even left-of-center authors and professors, in an open letter in Harper’s Magazine, decried the growing “intolerance of opposing views [and] a vogue for public shaming and ostracism …” They too were met with denials that cancel culture was a real problem. ..

In one blog post, I documented how the “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” founding narrative of BLM was fabricated after the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014. Even the Obama Justice Department found that Brown was shot after attacking a police officer, and did not have his hands raised in surrender or say, “Don’t shoot.” Yet to this day, I pointed out, BLM protesters chant, “Hands up! Don’t shoot!”

      Gotch,

      Don’t have the data handy, but Trump has support of about 30% of the Black vote, which is considered excellent for a Republican candidate. I believe if you do a search, you can find it.

          Republicans don’t like to answer polls because they fear repercussions from the anarchists on the Left. Thus why they call it the Silent Majority. Don’t care if you believe it. It’s the truth.

          Besides, look a how “accurate” 2016 polls were.

          BTW, Dick, I have no intention of further engaging with you. I just wanted to get that information out there about Black Americans who support Trump.

          You never answered my question on the other post about why you come around here. Is it to antagonize? If you want to add a differing view, fine, but all I see you doing is trying to stir things up. Conversations with you lead nowhere and are a waste of my valuable time.

    On the positive side, I sense that people are starting to push back against this. That is the only way. Surrender to these bullies and they will keep pushing.

Forget the predictable screeching about Racism, Discrimination, Non-Inclusiveness,etc. The truth is, NO ONE WAS TALKING TO HER !!! The whole point of learning English, when you come to this country, is to assimilate and be able to function in our society, NOT so some woman can listen in on your private conversations. Again, NO ONE WAS TALKING TO HER !!! They have every right in the world to speak any language they want among themselves. She has no idea if they speak English as well. If English is all she knows, then English is all she wants to hear. Her disrupting their day with her ranting is like someone going on a conservative blog and badgering THEM for saying things YOU don’t want to hear. !CALLATE! YA HAS HABLANDO BASTANTE!!!

    Brudder Blaska is correct, yet the Left continues to foment hate based on a lie. Forensic evidence on Brown’s body, proves that “Hands up, don’t shoot.” is a damnable lie.
    But then again, … “Black Lies Matter.”

    After unsuccessfully trying to grab the cop’s gun, he put his head down and bull rushed him.
    The bullet entered the top of his head.

    Perhaps BLM, Burn, Loot, Murder, needs a new slogan.
    How about, “Pant’s up, … don’t loot?”

    No wonder why the secular-progressives hated President Trump’s speech. It was one of the most righteous, pro-American speeches I’ve ever heard. “Our founders launched not only a revolution in government, but a revolution in the pursuit of justice, equality, liberty, and prosperity. No nation has done more to advance the human condition than the United States of America and no people have done more to promote human progress than the citizens of our great nation. It was all made possible by the courage of 56 patriots who gathered in Philadelphia 244 years ago and signed the Declaration of Independence. They enshrined a divine truth that changed the world forever when they said, “All men are created equal.” These immortal words set in motion the unstoppable march of freedom. Our founders boldly declared that we are all endowed with the same divine rights, given us by our Creator in Heaven, and that which God has given us, we will allow no one ever to take away ever. A nation must care for its own citizens first. We must take care of America first. It’s time. We believe in equal opportunity, equal justice, and equal treatment for citizens of every race, background, religion and creed. Every child of every color, born and unborn, is made in the holy image of God.

    Amen, President Trump. God bless you and keep you.

    I don’t know about “long suffering” but “lovely” is most assuredly an understatement.
    Gotch definitely married up; the woman is a goddess.
