64% of Americans Think ‘Cancel Culture’ is a Threat to Freedom

A new poll revealed that most of America views “cancel culture” as a threat to their freedom as a growing list of celebrities, public figures, and even children’s books are getting axed.

In a recent Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll, sixty-four percent of Americans surveyed believe “a growing cancel culture is a “threat to their freedom. When asked how big of an issue cancel culture is in late March, 36% responded that it was a “big problem,” while 32% think it’s a “moderate problem.” 20% of the 1,945 registered voters surveyed view it as a “small problem,” while a minority of 13% said it’s “not a problem.”

In recent months cancel culture has claimed the careers of celebrities like Gina Carano, who was fired from Disney+ hit “The Mandalorian” for comparing modern conservatives to Nazi-era Jews, and “Bachelor” host Chris Harrison, who stepped down from his post after commenting on the backlash against a former contestant for Confederate flag photo that resurfaced from years ago.

“This is, again, where we all need to have a little grace, a little understanding, a little compassion,” Harrison remarked. “I haven’t heard Rachael speak on this yet. And until I actually hear this woman have a chance to speak, who am I to say any of this?”

That comment was apparently all it took for the reality host to lose his job, and more than half of Americans are afraid the same thing could happen to them. 54% of the people surveyed were “concerned” that the opinions they expressed online could lead to being banned or fired from their jobs.

“It is a chilling finding that most people in the country now are afraid they would be fired if they expressed their real views on social media,” said director of the survey Mark Penn. “The public generally gives negative ratings to social media companies and sees the movement as more about censorship rather than trying to correct wrongs. It is growing as a national issue.”

If you get fired, nothing you can do about it. Best thing is to not be on social media. Gosh, what did we do without this stuff just a few years ago?
Parents, watch your kids and what they post.

The only people that get cancelled are those that express conservative views. The outlandish libs always seem to get a pass or are applauded.

Encourage every free thinking person you meet to speak up and take a stand. Get involved with others who are standing for true human freedom to think our own thoughts and too be responsible for our own lives. These Lefties will eat up each other as they seek to gain total power. Stalin, Fidel Castro, Mao, Hugo Chavez, etc., etc., Ives lives of luxury while they raped their own people of every vestige of freedom and human value. Now, the sickness has come to our beloved country. But, we can WIN if enough of us are willing to think, express ourselves, be willing to be put in their internment camps and resist even unto death. If we have grown to soft, to lazy and seek only security, we will lose. But future brave humans will rise up and reclaim that which we are so sheepishly giving away…true freedom and a life worth living.

The Lft hates Socrates…”The unexamined life is not worth living”! To hell with these Leftist Nazis!!!

I agree. The breed of Socialst-Lefties are afraid of ideas, afraid of human freedom
And hate joy! Laughter and LIFE!! They look just like the Bolsheviks-the CCP-North Koreans! I want to throw up just listening to their stupidity.

The may crush the LIGHT for a time but as in the past, courageous human beings will be willing to give their lives for true freedom!! It may cost us our lives but we must fight these Leftist Nazis to the death or cease to have a life worth living!

What about the other 34 percent who seems have bought into the other side, they upset me as much. They don’t realize that those who are causing the so called cancel culture are only supporting what. Nazi s and communists have done for the past 150 years. Eventually they run out those they hate and start on their own supporters— look at history and see what happened in the former Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Cuba, Vietnam, China,etc. Dd you want that here? I hope not!

Only because WE are afraid to speak out! IT IS OUR FAULT IF WE ARE TOO FEARFUL THAT WE WILL BE CANCELED!!!

THANK GOD OUR SPINELESS GENERATION WASN’T CALLED UPON WITH GENERAL WASHINGTON AT VALLEY FORGE AS MANY OF HIS SoLIDERS MARCHED THROUGH THE SNOW ITH NO SHOES aND VIRTUAllY NO FOOD FOR THEMSELVES!!!!

I am ashamed of our generation! We cringe because “SOMEONE MAY NOT LIKE US”!!!! My God, grow a pair and stand up to this Leftist Crap!

WE, you and I are the problem!!! If you and I will not take a stand against people calling us evil because we happen to be WHITE…THAT IS OUR PROBLEM AND THEY WILL BEAT YOU TO DEATH WITH “WHITE GUILT”. 300,000 White Unión
Soldiers shed their blood to free the slaves. Thousands of White Soldiers shed their blood to rescue Europe in WWW1 &WWW II.

ALL LIVES MATTER. Black, Brown, Asían , etc., etc., etc. Every human being has value as he/she is created in The Image Of God!

We used to stand for the proposition that”I may totally disagree with what you are speaking but I will defend to the death your right to speak!”!!!0

Look T the sorry lot we have become because we can’t remember the truth of who we are S a people. As for me, give me LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH as my forefathers lived and died!

So, go to your basement or get off your ass and take a stand! Get your nose bloodied!!! It won’t kill you.

Crawling in a hole, whining, complaining because the Lefties won’t play “nice” is not a solution

You act stand and still be. Bulwark of love, peace, courage and joy as you meet these evil ones. Some of them will have the scales fall from their blind eyes as WE SHOW LOVE, POWER OF TRUTH AND NO FEAR OF BEING CANCELLED!!!

I’ve preached myself happy and I am looking forward to coming in contact with a Leftie to persuade him/her to depart from their hopeless and evil life!

Brother, you are a man who has the winning identity that will lead us out of this crisis! May you inspire our weak kneed conservative brothers and sisters to become the Katrina to the Leftist Mob! Hopefully, you will inspire many spineless brother and sister conservatives to gain courage and effectiveness through your leadership.

So–all we do is sit around and poll ourselves while the left destroys our Nation. The left doesn’t give a flying d**n about our polls. They are afraid of our guns and the possibility we may come to the point that we’ll defend ourselves.

We are there already but there are only a few of us who have no fear, I have been ready but after they stole the election in broad daylight and NOBODY DID OR SAID ANYTHING I feel like I would be standing alone. We the people should have taken our.country back by force after the blatant cheating and fraud that went on. Does anybody in their right mind believe that a dementia joe and his two dollar hooker vp could have honestly won??????? Not in a million years!!!!!! Where are the PEOPLE?????? NOWHERE TO BE FOUND BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL JUST SHEEPLE.

It’s just the liberal democraps keeping lock step with the organizations they themselves created i.e. KKK, American Arian Nazi party. Read the 25 rules of how the german Nazi party took over germany and came close to taking over the world. The liberals are following them to the letter. All liberals should be tried and hanged by the neck for TREASON and left out hanging so the birds can pluck the fleash off their corpses, as a reminder that WE ARE NOT A DEMOCRACY WE ARE A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC!!!!!!! Too many Sheeple in America today a bunch of sissies to afraid to make a stand for what is descent and Right for ALL PEOPLE. all they do is use minorities as useful idoits to further their political agenda wake up sheeple.

The foreign (and American) funded effort to destroy traditional American values and society has gained momentum over the last decade or so. It was initiated under the William Clinton administration, and gained steam greatly under the Barack Obama Administration. It was temporarily stymied by Donald Trump, in spite of a concerted effort by the strongly anti American Democrat Party, and has now resumed in a vengeance with Joe Biden and his “handlers”, who do the large majority of the thinking for brain damaged Joe Biden.

It just may be that the Congressional election of 2022 will be a major, watershed event for the history of the United States – perhaps the most important event since the “military/industrial complex” speech by Eisenhower, before JFK was elected.

Well I am glad I retired because i am very outspoken about the farse they called an election and the border crisis. They are not being tested for covid and he is sending them all over the country. If the covid cases rise it will be Biden’s fault. So much for helping stop
the virus he is giving it a helping hand. And the kicker is he is treating the illegal immigrants better than our homeless people especially our vets .
