I'm on the side of a private business to have their own rules on their property.
I think any business should be allowed to ban or refuse service or not hire anyone for any reason. even if you don't like their race, gender or politics.

twitter can ban whoever for any reason and I will not care.

If they ban every dem for being a dem I still wont care.

Stop crying and create your own social media sites.

Oh, I'm sure that if say gab started banning dems for political speech that gab deemed harmful we would see dems crying about it just as much as we see repubs crying about twitter.

Don't care. I'm on the side of allowing private business to have their own rules on their property.

Is this a new disturbing trend? We are now at the point where people are literally stalking public figures on social media and mining their likes/follows looking for something they can use against them to get them fired. Thankfully us normies don't have to use our real names on twitter but for people that do this just makes the whole of social media even more of a left wing echo chamber. How are conservatives ever going to beat this scam

1. Canadian University board chair forced to resign for liking Trump and Dinesh D'Souza tweets... Specifically related to tweets critical of BLM.

2. Magic gathering artist blacklisted for following the wrong people.

The slope is slippery and we are going down fast.


Interesting, I follow Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie on Instagram. He deleted all his Instagram posts.
instagram.com...

Says he didn’t think he needs a “photographic record of all my comings and goings”

Girl i dated in high school is an "instagram model". She has about 170k followers, and she has deleted about half of her content over the last 2 months. Part of it is her grandkids, and her not wanting them to see her in images that are so highly sexualized.

It came to bite her in the butt though. She lives in the same small town we grew up in. Its not like someone wasn't going to notice eventually, and start harassing her over it.

The best part about it is that Conservatives tend to not recognize their own ages old cancel culture today.

They both do it. Theyve had power and became authoritarian.


I dunno. Seems like the Conservative "cancel culture" has always been rooted in the almighty dollar. If a public figure or company pisses them off, they boycott, but that usually only leads to liberals picking up the business and ultimately is little more than a blip. Liberal cancel culture is going after people personally, forcing firings and destroying their lives.

I dont think country fans calling for country music stations to stop playing the Dixie Chicks is comparable to haranguing the WH press secretary's family at restaurants or forcing the firing of a cop's step mother from her job because she supports the cop.

Candace Bergen played the role of a women with a child out of wedlock...remember?

All it takes to get Conservatives wanting to cancel is to make it gay, or somehow violate the delicate sensibilities of some TV preachers.

You may not find it comparable...but all you are doing is trying to judge the color of chicken #. White, brown, green, gray...its all chicken #, and none of it is better than any other.

Having spent part of my childhood cleaning up chicken #, that's true but doesn't tell the whole story. The Conservative "cancel culture" is old, dried chicken#, whereas the liberal cancel culture is fresh and moist... It's much, much easier to deal with the old dried chicken#. It helps if one realizes that we're going to be forced to deal with it regardless, which we are.

i had two progrresive friends who berated me in the last 10 days.

one friend told me, 'silence in complliance'

another friend told me, 'everyone is equal' is 'not enough'

friends i have known since 5th grade, now call me 'raccist' and 'we cant be friends if...'

the more i see of minion action, the more worried i am.

a friend of mine is warning me to move to texas over summer, before shtt goes down in the fall. he has already made the plans, he is out of here.

the problem is, if all the minions go along with it, we are doomed.
and the minions ARE going along with it.

when my friends of decades, turn their back on me, over what the media told them?

we are screwed huge.


note- its funny, both progresssive friends, both of them, berated me for being catholik.
the hypocrisy.
it shocking that they did this, as they command me on how i need to be a sj-w 'or else,'
they berate my religion.

Agreed.

They are not guaranteed the right to play football. Just like no one is guaranteed the right to post on social media.

This is warning to all people, don't have social media with your real name on it, if you are going to even like something.
The cancel culture is very strong now, and those in positions of power are bowing down to mob pressure at every turn.
I haven't posted, liked or re-tweeted to Twitter since 2016, and I won't either, it's too dangerous and I deleted Facebook 3 years ago. My IG is private. The 21st century lynching isn't hanging people by a rope, but getting them fired from their job and ruining their lives.

We can get back to it though after the reelection of president trump. Then the mass arrests of board members and enemy politicians can begin.


Every once in awhile someone makes me laugh out loud for real. You just did.

The only tick-tocking is the TikToking El Presidente took from those kids. No one is getting locked up by Trump. No one. It's about time all of you realized the LARP'ing is nearly over and nothing happened.

You mean that one show last lasted for 10 seasons? And the out-of-wedlock/single-mom storyline began half-way through the series? Wow that must have killed the ratings for it to keep going another 5 years.

Yeah, great example.

Yep.. and saw it coming and getting worse a long time ago.

Welcome to the future of the left. No one else is to blame. ..except maybe Russian agents and China's agents taking the US apart from the inside. This was their plan all along. America is getting hit from 2 major fronts. Throw in a few additional hard left leaning contributors and you have mush american soup for the brainless.


Libertarians / Constitutionalist better stand up quick or it'll get so far out of hand that it wont matter anymore. Someone with a loud voice needs to stand up and say something. By this I mean someone who has the ability, the authority and the power. Oh yeah... and the money. Someone that the left will actually listen to.

They wouldn't listen to Trump and all of the Kennedys are dead. At least the ones we would listen to.

But sure... someone's coming to "fix" it but it wont be the way we think. Wont be the way we want. Wont be the way we expect. Wont be the way that's good for anyone.

We are going down a slippery slope..

But we're not all going down.

Marxist elements in the west are panicking. It's why they're are so now "in your face"..

They aren't winning.. They are outing themselves.

Trump is just sitting back, relaxing during all this rioting, protesting, etc... and watching who comes out of the woodwork.

I think Trump has had this planned for a while..

It's known as "Cancel Culture," and it's not just conservatives... any liberals that don't tow the party line will be "cancelled" as well.

Roseanne Barr used to be a good liberal, until she was cancelled for her joke about Valerie Jarrett.

Kanye was a good liberal, until he was cancelled for working with Trump on issues like prison reform and inner city violence.

Sarah Silverman, like so many others, has been cancelled for wearing Blackface at one time.

It's happening to JK Rowling right now for daring to say that "people" who menstruate are women... Well, she's been "cancelled" by some but JK Rowling isn't easily "cancelled."

The list is literally endless...

If you want to read more, this article makes excuses for Cancel Culture: Why we can’t stop fighting about cancel culture

Here's one that argues against it: Dave Rubin slams out-of-control 'cancel culture': 'We're being treated like children'

Here's my favorite though: Those People We Tried to Cancel? They’re All Hanging Out Together


I don't understand the notion. Its the latest "direction-tard" brainless buzzword, full of built-in, raging hypocrisy disguised from the perpetrators by semantics (direction-tard meaning either "left" or "right" blind-follower zombies.)

I guess I've been "canceled" by a few lefttard and righttard twitter followers. Folks who followed me based on a pro- or anti- [person/issue/etc], and figured all of my thoughts & beliefs would line up with theirs. When they saw me tweet something that didn't agree with their programming, they expressed their horror and unfollowed me.
WOE IS ME! I'VE BEEN CANCELED! But I'm just a little guy, and losing a few of my not-many followers doesn't matter to me.

Here's the thing - if they ALL stopped following me, and nobody else started, I would still be able to tweet. And talk to others. And put up signs if I want.

What does it mean that Kanye was "canceled" for his opinions? Did he lose a record contract? Are people not able to download his songs anymore? No longer (aside from Wuhan Pandemic shutdowns) allowed to attend his concerts?

JK Rowling - writers quitting her agency is the news I'm seeing when I search her name. So...individuals don't want to work with her over her personal opinion regarding the minuscule sliver of society with the massive upheaval of offense felt from both directiontards? So what? Shouldn't they work with who they want to work with?

If a country singer is vocal about her distaste for President Trump, or supports abortion and 90% of her fans refuse to listen to her music anymore, is she "canceled?" Or did those individuals make a choice based on their and her religious and/or political beliefs that they would no longer listen to music they like, because they don't like the opinions of the musician?

Even in cases where a network literally cancels a show because they believe its a sound business decision, or simply don't want to be seen as supporting a very public figure's beliefs and opinions, isn't it possible that its a business making decisions they believe to be in their best quarterly profits / long-term viability / shareholder value interests?

I just don't get it. People exercise their freedom of speech. Nothing in the constitution says people aren't going to stop watchin/listening/following, etc, you when you do so. When the nation has managed to divide itself into two large opposing groups, with just a handful of independent thinkers, large groups will backlash against things they don't like.

I remember as a kid my grandparents' generation having people on TV or radio they would switch off because of the individual's political beliefs. I feel like this is the same thing, except now people are dainty fragile flowers who go into crybaby mode because people react when they voice their opinions.

SO EFFING WHAT! Get over it! You still have independent thinkers who don't give a [poop emoji] about your political opinions, and "your half" of the directiontards. What are we supposed to do? Legislate that people have to continue supporting people who they don't like?

The crybaby stuff about "cancel culture" is one of the biggest blizzards of snowflakism I've seen in years.
