NYT Bends Over Backwards To Praise Cancel Culture Gods
We have all seen crazed Libs call for boycotts whenever they find something they don't like. Libs had Gina Carano fired from her acting job on the hit Disney series " The Mandalorian." She had dared to claim that Dems were persecuting conservatives like the Germans persecuted the Jews. She is just one of many that have been taken down by an angry Liberal Twitter mob. But NY Times writer Sasha Issenberg seems to be proud of Lib's ability to destroy lives over differences in opinion. She claimed cancel culture is working to create social change.
"Rather than arguing that it doesn’t exist or that fears of it have been overblown, a recent New York Times op-ed from Sasha Issenberg said that “cancel culture works,” citing the LGBTQ community’s victory with same-sex marriage.
According to Issenberg, same-sex marriage coasted to mainstream success because LGBTQ activists like Fred Karger stopped mobilizing people to vote for a specific cause and instead mobilized them to protest individuals that gave money to measures like Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the state of California. One of the first targets of this was businessman Doug Manchester.
“Doug Manchester’s $125,000 donation was not the biggest to the pro-Proposition 8 cause, but he was the most substantial public-facing target Mr. Karger could find,” noted Issenberg. “He began picketing Mr. Manchester’s pre-eminent holdings, including the namesake downtown convention hotel, with a boycott that would endure for years. It was the first time gay-marriage activists adopted a strategy of scaring their most well-heeled opponents away from the fight.”
The Op-Ed goes on to praise these boycotts but fails to mention what actually caused same-sex marriage to become legal.
"The article failed to note that same-sex marriage did not become legal in the United States via the kind of grassroots efforts espoused by Fred Karger but was instituted from the top-down by the Supreme Court."
Social Change? Cancel Culture is ruining lives and infringing upon our freedom of speech. Americans should be able to freely speak their minds without the fear of losing their livelihoods, just because some sensitive Libs get offended. But Libs, like Issenberg, are happy about the change, they don't understand how they are ruining our country and jeopardizing their own freedom.
