    The self cancelling aspect of cancell culture is huge on many divides but that is imo what it all be about, Divides, you know dividing, add politics to really divide, soon imo pro groups are going to get big, pro something positive, like when pro building a wall is now being done by both sides, so lets all be pro wall n not pro trump n party or pro biden n party, simply pro wall because it works not because both doing it.

    Away from cancel to pro, pro ice cream every nite, pro non political threads, pro adorable kittens

    ain't no wall ... walls are only good for keeping people in ... that's why it's called a 'Prison Planet' ... I hope this is a cancel culture thought ... if not, I suppose I'll have to apologize in advance.

    I got this email a little while ago. I can't swear to the provenance but the contents while not a picture still paints a mouthful of words:

    Hi Vyexules,

    Who knew that in 2021, in America, we would be fighting for free speech?

    Yet, for the past few years, leftist activists, megacorporations, social media titans, Hollywood elites, and the mainstream media have been silencing speech they don’t like.

    If they don’t like it, they censor it. If it offends them, they cancel it and the person or the organization saying or posting it. We see it time and again in our own interactions and even in our private Facebook group.




    Stand Up for Free Speech


    According to the American Bar Association:
    “The Supreme Court has held strongly to the view that our nation believes in the public exchange of ideas and open debate, that the response to offensive speech is to speak in response. The dichotomy—society generally favoring free speech, but individuals objecting to the protection of particular messages—and the debate over it seem likely to continue unabated.”
    The ABA references the college campus controversies regarding free speech as an example of “freedom of speech in flux.”

    As the ABA noted, “contrary to widely held misimpressions, there is not a category of speech known as ‘hate speech’ that may uniformly be prohibited or punished.” While some people may hate certain speech, it does not mean it is hate speech, despite the radical actions being taken in today’s cancel culture.




    Stand Up for Free Speech


    Today’s cancel culture is becoming increasingly more toxic. And it’s resulting in less access to information that is necessary for a healthy society and well-balanced dialogue.

    In the case regarding former President Trump’s blocked Twitter account, “a federal judge ruled that blocking access to individuals based on their viewpoint violated the First Amendment."

    We cannot let FREE speech get CANCELED. We must protect the most sacred American value of free speech before it’s too late.

    Sign the Free Speech Pledge today.

    I reckon' the entire forum missed my post/thought/point/reflection/observation/lesson/intuition/hegelian dialectic manifestation/realization/realism/truism/drop shadow/double-bind/history lesson/meta-cognitive/meme-filled ambient/nonsensical debate/awareness of superficial thought processes/contra-defense/inescapable egoism/contextually restricted/misapprehesions of connectedness/denial/sheer psychic blindness/self-absorbption/projective perspective/dishonest invective/indefensible moral culpitude (A situation of futile hopelessness combining the salient elements of personal culpability and moral turpitude) which all point to the differences between apolitics and politics and moral values.

    The simple fact that we can't see the differences points to the heart of perspective. Perspective is important but not when it is obscured with petty annoyances leading away from the meat of the subject or provide opportunities for passive-aggressive cowardice.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you very much, Elvis the bob is now leaving the building ... but only for a cigarette and a cup of coffee.

    damn, i always do this ... I missed 'Knowledge passed on from children'

    I am serious about this.

    When you have gotten my point please let me know.

    I receive these unsolicited emails due to the hacking of my electronics several months ago. It has been reported to me by various internet security organizations that my email is on the dark web... so,

    The below addressee, ostensibly me, is a computer-generated name used to penetrate and spread Jain technology (Alien technology created for one purpose ... destroy all living intelligent life) throughout the global network.


    Hi Vyexules,

    What do Teen Vogue, Coca-Cola, and Major League Baseball have in common?

    They’ve all been willing participants of cancel culture… in the most hypocritical way. Speak up about cancel culture by taking this secure survey today.

    Take Teen Vogue, for example. The managers at Teen Vogue were well within their rights to fire their editor-in-chief because of decade-old offensive tweets. Employment in a high-profile editorial job at an elite employer like Vogue magazine is a privilege, not a right.

    But if they were to apply their standards equally, they’d also fire their senior social media manager who published a letter reportedly signed by more than 20 staffers rejecting the editor-in-chief… while she also had decade-old offensive tweets and was left untouched.

    Then there’s Major League Baseball, the latest corporation to engage in selective outrage. The MLB chose to punish Americans in Georgia over misleading and false reports about their election law, while continuing business-as-usual with China, despite its evident human rights abuses.

    Reminder: China doesn’t have voting rights…. nor does it have any basic rights or freedoms. And this move by MLB cost Georgia $100 million.

    What’s next? Is cancel culture coming for you?

    These incidents could be an opening for a national dialogue about redemption, racial reconciliation, and forgiveness. But instead of educating and discussing in a civilized manner, the forces that be decided to cancel those with whom they disagreed.

    How are we to heal and unite as a nation if this is the standard operating procedure?

    If you’ve had enough of the double standards, SPEAK UP. Share your opinions about cancel culture today.

    Thanks,

    Carrie Sheffield

    P.S. Read more about the MLB move here and the Teen Vogue incident here.

    Boycotts have been around for a long time. They are a way to resist or bring forth change which is not violent or destructive.

    To call them cancel culture is to cop out of the conversation.

    How about we stop cancelling peoples' right to vote instead of making laws based on lies?

    I'd much rather see activism like boycotting than shootings.
