  1. “Cancel Culture” is just culture.
    People have been cancelling each other, and their ideas, since day one.

    • @David Watson I am an American, and l would like to know myself.

    • @David Watson Consequences outside of Nazi Germany would be ppl choosing not to purchase the book.
      The fears all stem from the National Socialist Party, the book burning doesn’t start with the Encyclopedia, with libraries a thing of the past it’s a scary thought but the Lefty Oligarchs control all information.

    • @B. T. Trump still in yer head, huh? Pathetic.

    • @kyle m
      Is that the only comeback you have gramps?
      Pathetic old man.

    • @B. T. It’s all it takes to get a rise out of your sad little self, Bub. Too easy.

  2. If is racism JUST CANCEL IT!!

    Talk about cancel culture to every LGBTQ+ employee ever fired by their conservative boss for being LGBTQ+, or every minority denied a job, a business or home loan because of the color of their skin or national origin….they don’t care about cancel culture….they want their bad ideas to have the same societal weight as a good idea…..and that just isn’t how it works….

    • Oh god 🤦🏻‍♂️ I pray for people like you

      @Implied Lines Try not to have too much of a flame 🔥 out, mate.

      @E B and I pray for people who hide their bigotry and cowardice behind a faith that preaches the exact opposite of that bigotry and cowardice…..your petty politics place you on the wrong side of your god.

      @Burt Weissman keep going Num-nut….you’re only making yourself look worse. Ohhhhh! Why not use the real slurs! I know you want to.

    Cancel culture is nothing more than classic redirection. You know….when you are pointing at one thing you always have three fingers pointing back at yourself.

    • This new silly social media invented term just means holding someone accountable for unacceptable actions. Like, the courts “cancel” criminals for their crimes 9at least, they’re supposed to)

  8. When you’re the republican party and all you have is outrage over 6 books that no one has ever heard of….and your target audience doesn’t even read! 😅😂🤣

  9. CCP tactics .

  10. I love these outrage dolts think that The Cat in the Hat has been canceled.

    • You’ve got an IP, you want to sell it to hundreds of millions of Chinese. You censor the problematic content. Corporate wokeness.

  11. Whoooo Hooooo Ali….I love it….ha ha ha 😂

    Someone needs to cancel uncle fester

  13. This us yet another MSNBC advertisement dressed up as an important news item.
    Take your own advice – “Can we please just stick to the News”

  15. People will be kicking themselves in few weeks if they miss the opportunity to buy and invest in bitcoin

    Yes, Mr Velshi! Yes!
    You don’t make a mess.
    I love how you frame your views.
    Thanks for the poem.

    How to cleverly explain the news.

  17. It’s not just the “Cancel Culture” that has people in an uproar. It is the left’s censorship and banning that is confirming their Marxist orientation.

    That is so sad

  19. Still got the original video of this on my bookmarks. That piece was fantastic.
