Al Franken would like a staunch anti-Cancel Culture voice like Tucker Carlson to go back in time and make the same arguments.

i grazed the article and i think that they discuss a few valid issues

one being something captured digitally when a person was young (think teens with cell phones and social media) and dragging that out of the past and using it to wreck their career today

there are others

is there an understanding of history and context, and what is the path to common sense and forgiveness?

i'm not sure that any of us know someone that hasn't said or written something silly or something they regret

even comedy and film are obviously loaded with "original sin"

peace

'Freedom of speech' is fast becoming a contradiction in terms that would fit perfectly in Orwell's 1984.  It now seems to be 'Freedom of saying only what I agree with'.

Whilst the trend of shouting people down, cancelling them, smearing them rather than debating the issues, outrageously partisan double standards and the rest of the Ministry of Love tactics started in the US, like so many things the UK here is quickly following suit.  

Anyone who thinks the tech companies are working in our interests rather than the interests of their billionaire owners needs to wake up.

I think people in the Western democracies have gone mad, either vanishing up their own backsides to avoid facing up to the harsh realities of life outside their little bubbles or cowed into acquiescence.  The unintended consequences will damage us for a long time, if we ever recover from them at all.  Meanwhile the likes of China laugh and carry on their quest to replace our namby-pamby democracies with hard-edged paternalistic communism.

Photos Emerge Of National Guard Living In Parking Garage In Democrat-Run D.C.: ‘We Feel Incredibly Betrayed’

 
 
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service,” a National Guardsmen told Politico. “Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed.”

“All National Guard troops were told to vacate the Capitol and nearby congressional buildings on Thursday, and to set up mobile command centers outside or in nearby hotels, another Guardsman confirmed,” Politico reported. “They were told to take their rest breaks during their 12-hour shifts outside and in parking garages, the person said.”

“Speaker Pelosi personally met with the Secretary of the Army to demand 14,000 National Guard troops be deployed to the Capitol,” a source familiar with the security discussions at the Capitol told The Daily Wire in a statement. “But there was no logistical plan provided by the Speaker’s office on where the service members would sleep.”







 
That's the military's job to do the logistics, can't hang this stupid decision by the sergeant at arms on her. BTW the decision was reversed nearly right away with a few phone calls from democrat Tammy Duckworth.
