Cancel Culture, the Left's Ultimate Hypocrisy

So now the John Wayne Airport is to be renamed because he was supposedly a racist. Loreal cosmetics is cancelling the use of words like "whitening" and "fair" (oh the horror of those words lol) and of course there's the syrup, rice, and probably a massive list of other products that don't pass the leftist racial purity test. Now Jimmy Kimmel has to go into hiding for six months because he dressed like a black basketball player in a comedy sketch. I don't see that as racist BTW, but he is expendable because he's easily replaceable.

So what about the Democrat party itself and it's members past and present? The KKK was started by Democrats. The civil rights act was fought by Democrats. Robert Byrd was a KKK officer and a Senate Democrat for 51 YEARS. Ralph Northam has gotten a pass for wearing blackface (or wearing a KKK outfit, he can't remember which).... There's so much more that it's far too much to list here.

So if we are to get rid of everything that was seen as racist, why does the Democrat party and Democrats always get a pass, especially from our worthless media? I really don't think the vast majority of these people who tear down statues and get outraged by pancake syrup have little to no clue about the party they will be voting for. It's very obviously why the media doesn't remind us of history that's inconvenient to the cause, too many people would be informed about this ultimate double standard that has masked the history of the Democrat party.

Change my mind, I welcome a civil debate here.

AS WITH EVERYTHING, when a problem is identified and the mode of operation is in question,the remedy/
solution is to swing RADICALLY to the other side,eventually the mode of operation settles into a reasonable
and comfortable solution.... we are wrenching our way to the other side,the scale has NOT achieved a
blended balance., cancel culture is a fine example of this paradigm,as is the destruction of "offensive"
culture icons.

You are spot on with your summation and critique. The left is nothing but hate and regret - they hate America and all Her goodness and regret the stupidity and that most of them dodged the draft among other cowardly acts.

IF U re read the post, I don't believe I mentioned "left" or "right"....it was an observation of human nature.

Oh you didn't have to because it's all around us. However, if you're afraid to "offend" give the Leftist Dems, socialists and enemies of America a pass.

I believe "afraid",in the political sense, is not a word I recognize. I call it, as I see it....FUBARED.

The latest victim of "Cancel Culture" is Woodrow Wilson(D). President of America during World War I. He was horribly racist and set back minority hiring in DC several decades, but he also won a Nobel Peace Price, and worked to make the world a better place. How about if instead of canceling these people of history, let's show them as flawed human beings like we all are.
Thomas Jefferson, slave holder, yes, but he was also the writer of the Declaration of Independence and a great President who doubled the size of the republic. Columbus? He was racist, but he was also a brave explorer who risked it all to find new worlds.

I saw a quote from Archbishop Dolan in the WSJ that went something like this, "if we strip the names of all the imperfect people from churches and schools, soon they will only be named Jesus and the blessed Virgin Mary."

Some of the most amazing people in history were deeply flawed, in fact, sometimes they only discovered their abilities after stumbling.

The funny thing about this cancel culture is that it only goes one way. A racist ant-Semite has his own show on MSNBC and is a a friend of Obama and Louis Farakahn, another major racist. The double standard is so obvious it's almost laughable. If we're going to take this crap seriously, it has to go both ways or it's just more of the same political bullshit.

And how about Planned Parenthood? Margaret Sanger? Hello? Well known for wanting to eliminate the black race yet that death mill gets tax dollars and stimulus money. If you can't see this hypocrisy you're either clueless or lying to yourself.

He may be a goon, but he is our goon? The best example of that is the Virginia governor. He wore blackface in college and still wasn't forced to resign. His nickname in his yearbook was "Coonman".
Yet statues of emancipators like Lincoln and Grant are defaced instead.
