People have lost their careers because some left-wing wad of fruitiness found something in their past, some error, some misstep, or transgression that rendered that person forever verboten. Here’s how it goes, you drink a quarter of a bottle of whiskey on a Friday night when you’re 25 years old. Then, you say something that’s a wee bit questionable, and someone records it and puts it on Twitter.
Then 10 years later, when you’re married, have children, and a public-facing job, some loser goes through all your Twitter mentions and activity looking for a reason to cancel you. They find your drunken tirade, draw a pentagram on the ground, summon Captain Planet, travel back in time — and call an airstrike down on your mother’s head one hour before you were conceived.
It’s called Cancer Culture. Not only have people lost their ability to do their jobs and been fired outright. They have had their bank accounts revoked, their credit processing accounts shut down, their YouTube channels deleted, and worse — all because some hand-wringing twit didn’t like something they said once.
And there is a double standard. Leftists don’t get canceled when they are caught wearing blackface, saying the “n-word” or what have you. What you’re about to see is a prime example of a perfect example of this. Joy Behar once wore blackface. It is verified. But the left doesn’t give a wet slap. She gets a pass.
