Liberals are suddenly realizing that cancel culture can snap back and it hurts. The liberal idea was to cancel people who raise offensive or objectionable topics, summarily ending unwanted discussions by intimidating people into abandoning free speech rights. It was always anti-American. Now, it turns out the lefts beast, is eating them too.
Upending the First Amendment by spurning people with different views is a dead end legally, politically, and socially. Interestingly, conservatives generally offer to debate while liberals stifle dialogue. Now, they are being stifled.
Last week, some noted liberals wrote an open letter decrying how unthinking, zealous leftists were shutting them down. Former New York Times editor Bari Weiss and Harpers columnist Thomas Williams were joined by Harry Potters J.K. Rowling, activist Noam Chomsky, and feminist Gloria Steinem, in this conservative turn. They rediscovered the First Amendment.
Suddenly, having been shunted off stage, out of newsrooms, and denied the right to opine, they took to Bill Mahers show to say open debate without fear of repercussions might be a good idea, since the absence of free expression might lead to violence. Behold an epiphany.
While the left swarms Americas streets, these liberals penned a letter. Said Weiss, their letter was a warning cry from inside the institutions, signaling the need to reverse course. Free speech apparently does matter, after all. Why? Because blocking it is social murder these enlightened liberals professed on Mahers show a curious venue for lefty confessions.
Weiss explained. What is going on now with this culture of illiberalism is different from criticism. Criticism is good, but cancel culture is not criticism, it is about punishment

The mistake the elitist white Libturds who began the whole "cancel culture" thing was in assuming that those coming up behind them were in on the ruse.
They thought it was understood that "offensive" and "objectionable" were descriptions that would only apply to anything Conservatives, Republicans, Christians and NRA Members said, did, or believed.
It never occurred to them that these little snot-nosed miscreants they created would take the terms as defined in the dictionary and apply them across the board.
Embrace the suck, Libturds. You created these monsters.
I honestly don’t believe those libtards learned a damn thing.
They thought they only had to outrun the next guy while being charged by a bear. Oops
And they never will.
Yep. Now they’re only hope is that the crocodile will eat them last.
Cancel culture's the modern day version of the old Salem Witch Trials... history will NOT be kind to these liberal 'elite' hysterics.
“The believer will fight another believer over a shade of difference; the doubter fights only with himself.
Since all leftists MUST apparently all believe the same things this was inevitable - watch as all the apostates gradually come back into the fold and this talk of eating one’s own fades away.
Translation: "No shit Sherlock".
Who could have guessed the beast had such a voracious appetite?
See “Maximilien Robespierre” for further info.
It was all shyts and giggles deriving gratification from those shamed and cancelled for publicly saying ALL LIVES MATTER and questioning any liberal orthodoxy. You all created this monster, this is what you wanted, this is what you get, and all that goes with it! Karma!
All of them can be easily condensed to:
“Do what we tell you and STFU.”
First you start doing the cancelling, then you get cancelled yourself with an ice axe in the back of the head.
“... history will NOT be kind to these liberal ‘elite’ hysterics.”
if the Marxists win this November, due to current technology there will be no history (other than the ministry of truth)
