Au contraire, my friend, but it will! It will fix everything! Why? For the same reason that a nuclear America made a nuclear USSR cave: mutually assured destruction. If you nuke us, we will nuke you and we will all die in a hellish inferno. (I guess the Russians did love their children too.) If “our guys” get canceled and fired like Gina Carano for saying political things that people don’t like, then “their guys” need to face the same consequences.
In normal times, conservatives hate cancel culture. We believe in free speech! We shouldn’t ever want anyone fired for using their free speech, and we don’t. But these are not normal times. We’re in a cold war every bit as important as the cold war in the ’80s that saved the world from Communism. We’re going to do it again, and the only way to beat back the left is to play their game. Make them eat their own under the rules they built. If you can be fired for one politically incorrect opinion, then so can they.
Ben Shapiro stated it perfectly. “In a sane world, Whoopi wouldn’t be suspended. But the Left’s standard is that if you say a Bad Thing then you lose your job. So they should fire her. Mutually assured destruction until you stop with all of this nonsense.”
