We’re not those people … the brats.
We’re not the ones who will come after you and “get” you for saying the wrong word, asking questions or having politically incorrect thoughts, etc. This could be a winning message for Republicans especially with older moderate voters who don’t understand the religion of woke supremacy.
“Many Americans don’t have an opinion about “cancel culture” — or even know what it is. Younger Americans tend to be more familiar with the term at this point, though this could change given how much the GOP is making it a part of its political playbook.
And it’s Republicans under the age of 45 who are really concerned about “cancel culture.”
One in 4 Republicans between the ages of 18 and 44 listed it as a top concern, compared to just 1 percent of Democrats in this same age group, according to a recent YouGov Blue poll. In fact, among younger Republicans, “cancel culture” ranked sixth in terms of overall importance, but for younger Democrats it ranked dead last. …”
What is worse?
Is it the sharp words, offensive jokes and transgression against our sacred norms from the “far right”? Is it the hall monitors, censorship, cancellations and puritanical career destroying social media lynch mobs from the far left? If you are one of these people who has a career in this country like Donald McNeil, Jr, you should start asking yourself that question because it will be of growing importance over the next twenty years. Have you ever said anything in your life that the Elect might one day discover and find offensive? Are you sure that you are on the right side of them? Mr. Potato Head wasn’t.
Even if you have never said anything “racist” in your entire life, the meaning of terms like “racism” and “white supremacy” are in flux. They are constantly being inflated to encompass ever more innocuous forms of activity. You can’t even notice and lament the existence of racial gaps anymore because that is sufficient grounds to destroy your career. It was discovered last summer that racism is systematic and that all White people are “complicit” in racism and benefit from their “white privilege.” Also, even when things happen in the news like the Atlanta shooting that have nothing to do with race, the media will say it is “white supremacy” and that we are all “complicit” in whatever happens anyway.
What kind of culture do you want to live in? Do you want a culture where people are free to say whatever is on their mind in a free country without living in fear of being destroyed for airing their opinions? Do you want to live in a culture where the -isms and -phobias have multiplied beyond even what they are now and the sphere of permissible thought and disagreement has further narrowed?
