Cancel culture unpopular

 Red States:

In case you needed more proof that cancel culture can’t sustain itself forever, a recent poll revealed that most Americans do not favor the political tactic. It can be expected that the number of people who view cancel culture as a negative will only rise as the hard left continues to go overboard with their latest exercise in cultural Marxism.

According to a recent Harvard CAPS-Harris poll released to The Hill, 64% of respondents claimed there is “a growing cancel culture” that is threatening to their freedom. Only 36% indicated that they did not believe it to be a threat to their freedom.

The Hill reported, “the poll found that 36 percent of Americans said cancel culture is a “big problem,” while 32 percent called it a “moderate problem.” Another 20 percent said it was a “small problem” and 13 percent said it is “not a problem.”

The survey was published only days after CBS announced that Sharon Osbourne would be stepping down from her position as co-host of The Talk.” The announcement came after a heated conversation centering on Osbourne’s defense of British media personality Piers Morgan, who criticized Meghan Markle and Prince Harry after their interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Morgan savaged the couple, stating he did not believe Markle’s claim that she struggled with mental health issues and that she has been suicidal. As you could easily predict, this led to the usual accusations of racism and bigotry and blah blah blah.

Osbourne defended Morgan, saying, “I feel even like I’m about to be put in the electric chair because I have a friend who many people think is a racist, so that makes me a racist.”

The survey also found that 54% of respondents indicated they were “concerned” that if they express their views online, they would be fired. Conversely, 46% said that they were not worried about stating their opinions online.

...

There is more.

One of the benefits of being retired is that you do not have to be as concerned about being canceled.
