Even people who typically don’t pay a lot of attention to the news are finding out about the left’s cancel culture tactics. You can’t help but see the stories about professors being suspended or fired, media figures being forced to resign, sports icons having to issue multiple apologies for WrongThink. The stories all over social media and all over the evening news at a time when a lot of people are still home out of work and have time on their hands to surf the Internet and watch TV.
It can be overwhelming, and give political junkies and others who follow these stories closely a sense of hopelessness. There’s also the feeling that there is no end in sight, that people on the right are going to give up out of frustration and the left are going to win the cancel culture wars.
