YES, CANCEL CULTURE IS AN ATTACK ON FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION

Muslim oppression 3Free Speech has been under assault by both Liberals and Conservatives in recent decades, but mostly by Liberals in the past twenty years via Political Correctness and Cancel Culture. There was a time when Liberals actively supported freedom of expression because they understood it was THE primary freedom from which all other freedoms flowed. The early figures from my own country’s history protected speech with the FIRST Amendment to the Constitution because they knew all too well that ideas that are considered taboo and offensive today might be considered essential truths by future generations.

The forever-hypocritical 1960s generation of American Liberals were all about Free Speech when THEIR ideas were the ones offending people. Once they considered themselves to be comfortably in the cultural, educational and political driver’s seat by the early 1990s they decided they wanted their own already outdated worldview enshrined in stone and presented as THE one true set of values.

Free speech is a civil rightThey became the Political Correctness Police and anyone who offended their 1960s attitudes had to be silenced because – as they knew so well from their own experience – when controversial ideas are given the room to breathe they can often thrive. The totalitarian asses of the 1960s left can’t bear the fact that younger people might have opinions that offend THEM as much as their opinions offended their parents’ generation. 

And it’s not just in America. All around the world similar assaults on Freedom of Expression are being made by white, one percenter fascists like Jack Dorsey, Mark Zuckerberg and their ilk. When hypersensitive fools around the world want material banned as “offensive” to their closed minds, too many people still cave to their shrill demands. Considering that the more easily offended someone is the less intelligent they tend to be I find it amazing that Politically Correct censorship has thrived the way it has.

Free Speech 2Keep in mind Spinoza’s wonderful line “Every man should think what he likes and say what he thinks.” That still rings true because no matter what the hypersensitive fools who want to censor the rest of us find offensive NONE of them has the right to try to extinguish one single product of the human mind.

Here at Balladeer’s Blog I deal with these issues on a daily basis. Just about everything I write offends either left-wing fanatics or right-wing fanatics or religious fanatics. Tell Big Tech and the other powers that be – no matter what their skin color or their religion – that you will NOT let them dictate to you what ideas and opinions you are free to express.

    Listening to these roosters crow about “cancel culture” doesn’t make me tense. It just makes me terribly alert to their having a bad day and could use some psychological help.

  3. Excellent post! The Democrats are not producing any original ideas, in fact, their rhetoric and ideas are at least 50 years old. But they’ve gotten more extreme, more insane, and more violent. They’ve turned into the very thing they claim to hate – Fascists.
