It's just getting called out on BS.
Let’s talk about words today. Words are great. They can mean many different things to many people. Like the word “fuck” for example. Probably the most versatile word in the English language. It can be used to express the heat of joyful passion or an eternal pit of despair.
Context is everything.
Such is so for a new phrase plaguing our times; “cancel culture.”
Evil marketing genius whoever came up with it.
In two words, the worst behavior ever can now be completely acceptable to whatever tribe says so. The worst of the worst wear it like a badge of honor.
Wanna hate someone? Display a simulated murder of an enemy to rile your base? Do your worst! Say your worst! Be the worst possible human being imaginable towards anyone or anything and you will gain a following of assholes just like you. Maybe just maybe one of your newfound “compatriots” will actually be so distraught they try to murder your “enemy” for you.
Note Jan 6. Also, note how many of those assholes never got a pardon from Trump. Remember that, assholes. Leaders of assholes never go to jail, just their followers. Leaders of assholes only get justice from the rest of the world watching, never from within. Note Hitler. Note Mussolini. Note Gaddafi. Note Hussein. Some day soon, the world will come for America if America does not deal with its asshole problem now. History demands it and it will be paid in blood if necessary.
The internet has destroyed our common media experience and thus has destroyed this countries' moral center.
Case and Point
Superman Crushed the KKK.
“As the storyline progressed, the shows exposed many of the KKK’s most guarded secrets. By revealing everything from code words to rituals, the program completely stripped the Klan of its mystique. Within two weeks of the broadcast, KKK recruitment was down to zero. And by 1948, people were showing up to Klan rallies just to mock them.” https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/23157/how-superman-defeated-ku-klux-klan
