So often on this board I see leftists comparing boycotts to modern Cancel Culture. The problem with that completely false comparison is that my personal boycotts or promotion of said boycotts has no impact on your ability to indulge in what I am boycotting.
Take General Motors for instance. I will never again buy a new GM product because of how they shit on dealers while bailing out investors with my tax dollars. That personal boycott has no affect on your ability to purchase a GM product. I am not DECIDING FOR YOU.

At the same time I have not nor would I ever try to get Springsteens music banned or Deniros movies canceled. In fact I still love both of their products. They have both added to the culture of our nation. One with pride instilling patriotic music and the other with thought provoking movies that delved into organized crime. I think America would be a worse place culturally if I cancelled the products of everyone I disagreed with politically or personally.
A great question for the left is why is Mein Kampf still for sale on Amazon while other books from a conservative perspective are banned? Why is Gina canceled while the left invokes Nazi references daily? Those are rhetorical so don't bother with your gibberish twisted responses.
If not for Lincoln the United States today might still be fractured. The Civil Rights bill might not exist. Yet in California he is canceled and Illinois is considering canceling him. How is this not total off the charts lunacy?
Think back to the worst things you've ever said in life then imagine CNN putting your picture and those statements on the air every hour, every day for weeks or months...

Where does this insanity take us? Gina was spot on despite wording it in a way that could get her in trouble.

We have to stop this shit. We are circling the drain. We're like the Roman empire on the fast track.

Bingo! That's it. I don't understand why anyone would attempt to make that decision for anyone else.

I agree. It's almost as if these people live in an alternate universe. They don't recognize the consequences of their actions.

How do all those right wingers demanding a boycott of the Olympics in China effect their hate for the cancel culture? Can you have it both ways?

Democrat Gov. Cuomo is a case that tells me that if voters vote him out of office, that in itself is that will start the ball of freedom rolling for all US citizens for the first time in a long, long time.

I'm a very strong right wing Republican but have not demanded any boycott against anybody
A lot of right wingers have. Does that make them RINOs?

No you didn't. Lots of RWNJs are demanding the US boycott the Olympics. That would affect my ability to watch the games. You right wingers need to make up your silly minds.

WTF happened to our country? We didn't used to get somebody fired based on their political views, did we? Maybe I was too naive, but I thought major news outlets like the NY Times, WaPo, NBC, CNN and the like used to have people on both sides of the political spectrum on their staffs, and they weren't harassed and pilloried until they quit. Or our colleges and universities, when did it become okay to squelch free speech if it wasn't supportive of progressivism or socialism? And it's all pretty much one-sided, I don't see anybody getting canned or being a progressive liberal. Look at Hollywood, are there actors and others in that industry that are denied work because they support the democrats? I'm pretty sure there were and are some who faced rejection because they were conservatives who supported the GOP, or God save them, DJT.

They were silenced and received death threats when they dared to open their mouths about GWB.
Part of the right wing cancel culture you're now going to pretend you knew nothing about.

Pretend? I don't follow country music.
Apparently they went on solo outings according to Google and are getting back together after a duet with Taylor Swift.

I don't follow cry in my beer bullshit music.
Either way even if you are right, since I don't know the facts, that is one instance. That clearly pales in comparison to what you tards are doing now. Canceling half our historical figures and anyone on the right who dares express an opinion by the dozens.

To support or not support is first amendment right. Conservatives are generally bonded on lower tax and less federal control over state choices, and we value the individual's right to invent and be rewarded for the patents and copyright wealth such efforts earn. We usually oppose breaking the law and support the tasks police must do when dealing with criminality.

However, when some idiot goes around bragging of his crime and thuggeries, we do reserve the right to allow him to pay for his crime if the courts find him guilty, and we get rid of officials who swear an oath to support the Constitution, but for some reason renig on that promise while executing the break doing an official task.
