Cancel Culture

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

I had no idea what it was... I've been meaning to look it up since it's a popular conservative term right now. Turns out, I don't have to now.

It's the same kind of delusional nonsense that the war on Christmas and the assault on Christianity were. Just another chance to be a victim.

Cancel Culture has a long history in various religions, still practised by quite a few. Shunning = Cancel Culture. Same thing.

And more, many approved of by cons, and some others that I and probably we are okay with:

Excommunication
Witch hysteria
Banishment/exile
Women's disenfranchisement
Felon disenfranchisement
Sex offender status
Deportation
Discrimination in housing, jobs, clubs, schools, etc.
Blackballing
Boycotts
Economic sanctions
Embargoes
Jim Crow
Slavery
War/occupation, and so on.

As the video and neoplacebo point out, White cons have just coined a whiny term for the tactics they've happily used for thousands of years and still use being employed against the assholes and Nazis in their midst.
