There are certain people that cancel culture can’t cancel simply due to the fact that their profession, or the companies they work for, make them immune to leftist mob outrage. However, this is actually rare and the outrage mob has learned of a way to make it punishable to think differently than they do in other ways.
They learned they can come after you and make it very public that they’re doing so.
Ben Shapiro, Liz Wheeler, and yours truly have been threatened with cancellation many a time and we naturally laugh it off. If I write or say something that SJW mob finds outrageous, and the left judge me guilty of wrong-think, the worst they can do is hatred at me on social media. Reporting to my boss about what I said isn’t likely going to do anything except get me some brownie points. I’m paid to express my opinion and if my opinion is generating buzz, well that’s just dandy.
