What Is Cancel Culture And How Has It Influenced Our Everyday Life?

We have seen a major shift in American culture as liberals butcher history and attempt to redefine absolutes.

And when concerned citizens begin to notice that the left is creating a subjective and relative society torn from reality, they label conservatives as crazy, a bigot, or some new phobia of the week.

But what we have seen there is a name for, and it is infiltrating every aspect of our lives!

“Cancel culture” is a term we are hearing more and more in the media, and for good reason.

But what is it exactly?

It is best described as “a cultural boycott,” as The Hill put it.

And it’s not just right-wing extreme factions who believe it is a toxin being pumped into the minds of the old and young alike, getting them to believe a narrative that best fits the liberal agenda.

According to a Harvard CAPS-Harris poll released to The Hill, 64% of the participants revealed they believe cancel culture is a real threat to freedom in the United States.

Mommy Underground has previously reported on how liberal companies Google and Apple attempted to bully smaller conservative social media company Parler into eliminating their uncensored platform by removing it from their app stores.

There are countless stories like this where conservative companies, individuals, or organizations were blacklisted, boycotted, or publicly shamed for not getting in line with the left’s delusional ideologies.

Harvard is not the only research group who has noticed the shift in culture slowly eroding at this nation’s foundation.

At this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, which was appropriately titled “America Uncanceled”, it was found in a poll that 80% of Republicans and 48% of Democrats say cancel culture is a threat.

Arguing cultural points behind a computer screen is one thing, but liberals have become much more action oriented in their efforts, even taking to many historical sites tearing them down so history can be re-written any way they see fit.

The statue of confederate general Stonewall Jackson was taken off its pedestal in Richmond, Virginia, the head of a statue of Christopher Columbus was removed in Boston, Aunt Jemima company is changing their name, and Johnson and Johnson are rephrasing the term “whitening” on their products (even though that one has nothing to do with race, but more of a technical fact), The Atlantic reports.

Mark Penn, the director of the Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey, said:

“Americans are showing increased and substantial concern about the growth of cancel culture. Tech companies beware that the public sees them of acting out of bias tilted towards the Democrats and voters are calling for new regulations to ensure fairness and openness. Amazon, in particular, still has a strong image compared to Facebook and Twitter, but that image may start to erode if they expand the banning of books on their platform.”

Freedom includes being able to choose for ourselves which values and events we deem important and memorable.

If cancel culture persists, it will surely extend into an oppressive, overreaching society spearheaded by the government, where all information will be filtered through the liberal worldview.

Thankfully, these polls mentioned seem to indicate United States citizens are aware of the war on our minds and are against the perpetuation of such methods.
