When history looks back on 2021, it will be commemorated as the year leftism hit America harder than ever. But along with the Big Cheat, Bidenflation, a crumbling economy, military failures, and being sold to China, cancel culture ruled the day.
But conservatives aren’t the only ones to face cancel culture. Unfortunately, we’re often canceled for speaking the truth. Like when Kevin Jackson called Christine Blasey-Ford a lying skank, and Fox canceled him. But leftists face cancel culture, too. It hits everyone from TV actors, movie stars, singers, song-writers, social media influencers to political figures and news anchors. Most likely, even if the red wave hits this coming November, cancel culture is here to stay.
In fact, the New York Post came up with a list of cancelees.
But, fans digress.
Dr. Jill McCorkel, a professor of sociology and criminology at Villanova University, previously told The Post that the foundation of cancel culture can be found throughout history.
“Cancel culture is an extension of or a contemporary evolution of a much bolder set of social processes that we can see in the form of banishment,” she said. “[They] are designed to reinforce the set of norms.”
Here are just some of the stars who found themselves in scalding hot water this year.
“I made a joke, months ago, and got a treatise from my daughter,” the 51-year-old said in August. “She left the table. I said, ‘Come on, that’s a joke! I say it in the movie “Stuck on You!”‘
“She went to her room and wrote a very long, beautiful treatise on how that word is dangerous. I said, ‘I retire the F-slur!’ I understood,” Damon continued. The actor later clarified his comments, saying that he “never called” anyone the slur.
In a statement he later made to the Hollywood Reporter, the “Good Will Hunting” actor said, “I have never called anyone ‘f—-t’ in my personal life and this conversation with my daughter was not a personal awakening. I do not use slurs of any kind.”
“I have learned that eradicating prejudice requires active movement toward justice rather than finding passive comfort in imagining myself ‘one of the good guys,’” he continued. “And given that open hostility against the LGBTQ+ community is still not uncommon, I understand why my statement led many to assume the worst. To be as clear as I can be, I stand with the LGBTQ+ community.”
Chappelle’s no leftist. But he’s fallen prey to the liberal bottom feeders. As we previously wrote, “Leftists have revolted against Chappelle for revealing far too many truths about their character in his performance.”
Did SCOTUS make the right decision on medical mandates for large businesses?
The NY Post adds:
The comedian garnered much hate from viewers with his Netflix special “The Closer,” which was released in October and deemed transphobic by fans. The special led to two transgender Netflix employees filing labor complaints against the streaming service.
Critics called to cancel the funnyman and he addressed his comments in an Instagram video last month. Chappelle stated in his clip that he would meet with transgender employees; however, he won’t be “bending to anybody’s demands.”
“If you want to meet with me, I am more than willing to, but I have some conditions … First of all, you cannot come if you have not watched my special from beginning to end,” he said.
“This has nothing to do with [the LGBTQ community]. It’s about corporate interests and what I can say and what I cannot say,” he added. “For the record, and I need you to know this, everyone I know from that community has been loving and supporting, so I don’t know what all this nonsense is about.”
But it’s exactly as Elon Musk recently stated. The left is trying to destroy any form of comedy. And that’s no ok. It never will be.
If you look up the word vile, this woman might just be pictured in the dictionary. Right next to Hillary Clinton. I recall when Teigan promised to leave the country if Donald Trump was re-elected. I sure hope she stands by that when Trump returns.
The NY Post adds:
“She wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take ‘a dirt nap’ but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself,” Stodden said in a profile published by the Daily Beast. “Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die.’”
The “Cravings” author responded with a lengthy social media post. “Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls–t in front of the entire world. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be.”
She added, “I was an insecure, attention-seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that… is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel.”
There is a host of other leftists that were forced to “exit stage left,” if you want to put it in Hollywood terminology.
For example, the dynamic duo of the Cuomo brothers. They’ve been deflated. Big brother is no longer the big guy in the state of New York, and little brother has been silenced by CNN. That’s a favor to the whole world, but it’s definitely a loss for leftists.
And Demi Lovato. She came out as non-binary. But that’s not what ended her. She tried to blast a frozen yogurt shop for including sugar-free products in their line-up. How dare them try to satisfy the diabetics and dieting population. Her excuse? She was “triggered” by the words “sugar-free” after recovering from an eating disorder. Disney was already smart enough to get rid of her, but if she’d still had a place on the network, they would’ve axed her right away.
I’m sure we could easily add a hundred names to the list. But it’s a lot like a song I learned in Girl Scouts years ago. It said “second verse, same as the first. A little bit louder and a little bit worse.” Such in the case anytime you examine leftism, from any angle.
