Cancel Culture as described by the urban dictionary: is the phenomenon or practice of publicly rejecting, boycotting, or ending support for particular people or groups because of their socially or morally unacceptable views or actions. Cancel culture can ruin careers, but it can make a public figure think twice before posting controversial comments.
The popular definition is skewed within itself. It suggests that the comments made are socially or morally unacceptable. The problem of course with the definition is that the liberal media and their favored groups get to select what in their opinion is acceptable. It negates the rights of an individual and their rights of free speech. We have seen people being canceled or ostracized for expressing their personal beliefs. For example, Kevin Hart, who suggested that he would not want his son to be gay was challenged as a homophobic radical as opposed to a father that spoke his sincere beliefs about what he wanted for his son, which he has a right to do. Though Kevin Hart probably holds more liberal political views the radical left will still muzzle their own, if one has the temerity to express a view opposed to the lefts strongly held tenets.
Moreover, I find that cancel culture seems to apply primarily to conservatives. You will find that the same behavior or comments would never be allowed by a conservative is looked over by liberals. Most Americans are still shocked at how unevenly the Virginia Governor was treated who wore black face as an adult at a frat party. He still sleeps at the Governor’s mansion in Virginia. Recently our President referred to a member of his staff as a “boy,” who was African American. Who can do that as a conservative and not be ridiculed or canceled – a liberal.
Cancel culture by my definition is a tool used by elite liberals to shut up conservatives when they state the obvious or dare to challenge the views or opinions that are not held by liberals or simply put - conservatives stating their opinions. That does not give people the right to defame people or name call, but as individuals we have the right to hold different opinions, express those opinions, and civilly discuss differences of opinions, without threats of being canceled.
