Cancel Culture Just Claimed Another Scalp

What was it? Yesterday or the day before when one of the baddest (in a good way) women on the face of the Earth was cancelled and fired by the commies at Disney … for a meme which suggested that having different opinions today could cost someone their livelihoods, and even lives.  Today we have another one.

As a man from a Jewish family, let me be the first to tell you that what Gina Carano posted, comparing the way conservatives are treated in the digital world to how the Nazi’s treated Jews and other ‘undesirables’ is not anti-Semitic, it’s not insensitive, it’s true.

No, they are not rounding us up  … yet, but they are discussing it.  They are talking about purging the military of Trump supporters.  They are canceling, deplatforming, depersoning, and taking away the ability of people to participate in commerce because of their political beliefs.

Carano, who is a former MMA champion, model turned movie star’s own story about being cancelled for posting meme … proves her own point.

Well, today the mob’s desire to tear down someones’ life because of a statement just struck again.

This is another one of those stories that I would normally passover (get it … I’m a Jew), but I was curious to see what cost this guy his life and … I can’t really figure it out based on this article from Fox, maybe you can tell me what he did:

Fox News is reporting:

Bachelor” host Chris Harrison has announced he will be stepping back from his duties on the ABC franchise due to an ongoing racism controversy that saw him on the receiving end of intense backlash this week.

Harrison, 49, took to Instagram with a lengthy statement on Saturday afternoon to take accountability for his actions.

“I have spent the last few days listening to the pain my words have caused, and I am deeply remorseful. My ignorance did damage to my friends, colleagues and strangers alike. I have no one to blame but myself for what I said and the way I spoke,” he wrote in a lengthy statement shared on Instagram Saturday. 

His statement continues: “I set standards for myself, and have not met them. I feel that with every fiber of my being. Now, just as I taught my children to stand up, and to own their actions, I will do the same. By excusing historical racism, I defended it. I invoked the term ‘woke police,’ which is unacceptable. I am ashamed over how uninformed I was. I was so wrong.” 

“To the Black community, to the BIPOC community: I am so sorry. My words were harmful. I am listening, and I truly apologize for my ignorance and any pain it caused you,” he added. “I want to give my heartfelt thanks to the people from these communities who I’ve had enlightening conversations with over the past few days, and I am so grateful to those who have reached out to help me on my path to anti-racism.”

Harrison went on to say that the current season of “The Bachelor” “should not be marred or overshadowed by my mistakes or diminished by my actions.”

Harrison confirmed he will be “stepping aside for a period of time and will not join for the After the Final Rose special.” He said he reached this decison by consulting with Warner Bros. and ABC.

“I am dedicated to getting educated on a more profound and productive level than ever before. I want to ensure our cast and crew members, to my friends, colleagues and our fans: this is not just a moment but a commitment to much greater understanding that I will actively make every day.”‘

What did he even do?  Say ‘Woke police’?  How is that racist?  There are definitely ‘woke police’ out there and they are very busy each day trying to ruin lives out of spite.

If the guy dropped some N bombs, then yeah, I get it, he shouldn’t be on the show, but if he just questioned cancel culture and defended a contestant in order to be nice and now he is cancelled … ugh, that just proved his point, no?
