The mass murderer who attacked the Colorado Springs LGBTQIA+ club is a member of the LGBTQIA+ community. Turns out, too, he’s known by local law enforcement for his violent behavior, which has included threatening to kill his own mother with a pipe bomb. That crime,...
Daily Life in America Upended by the Cancel-O-Matic
Got a grievance? Offended by someone? Want to settle a grudge? You now have the easy-to-use Cancel-O-Matic method. No proof of wrongdoing is needed. No due process. No facing your accuser. No rules of evidence. No trial by a jury of your peers. Just the uncorroborated word of one person, and perhaps an optional petition from an anonymous social media lynch mob.
Tell the employer of your chosen victim that he/she/it offended you with hate speech. Hateful to who? You, of course! You are the center of your universe. You have the power. Before you can say “white supremacy,” that person will be fired. Sweet. Revenge is yours.
Bonus features of the Cancel-O-Matic:
- Your victim is never allowed to defend her/him/whatever-self in a hearing.
- Merely by accusing, you must be believed. Your word is the law.
- Your victim may be required to attend “wokeness sensitivity” training where she/it/he must apologize and grovel. The best part? He’ll be fired anyway.
- Your victim is fired from his job and will probably never work in her profession again.
- Other people who might dare to offend you (in ways not yet thought up) will be intimidated.
- Everyone will fear to do anything or say anything! You are Master of the Universe.
Now, what would you pay? Unfortunately, this is not the latest “Rule the Universe” video game. This is daily life in America. And the Cancel-O-Matic is free. Anybody can use it at any time against anybody.
Welcome to the Soviet Union
Welcome to the Soviet Union, where everybody fears their neighbors and colleagues, because neighbors may inform on them and cancel their livelihood. Instead of Stalin’s NKVD, we have the emotional teenager in your classroom or the sadistic “grievance identifier” where you work. Instead of pulling wings off flies, they pull jobs off independent thinkers.
Every moody teenager or narcissistic egoist now has the power to destroy. Because it is so easy, it is so tempting to use that power to prove how powerful you are. Mighty Conan, the Canceler will destroy your livelihood! Powerful Xena, Warrior Princess, will get you fired.
Here is one example. In The Daily Signal, Douglas Blair wrote the article 8 College Professors Cancelled by Left. Blair wrote:
The students at Portland State University also disliked how [Professor] Boghossian prioritized diversity of thought in his classroom. Boghossian was the target of harassment, including graffiti in the shape of a swastika featuring his name and a Title IX probe that alleged Boghossian beat his wife and children.
While the probe went nowhere, Boghossian was required to attend school-mandated coaching and was banned from teaching things in a way that might reveal his views on “protected classes.”
In the face of all these campaigns to discredit or fire him, Boghossian resigned.
The New Stalinist Show Trials: Title IX Probes
Remember, Title IX campus probes have no rules of evidence, no requirement that the accuser faces the accused, and no peer jury hearing evidence. Just a college administrator telling you you are guilty of whatever the anonymous accuser said. No evidence, no due process whatsoever. If you are accused, you are guilty. Title IX hearings are Stalinist Show Trials. Professor Boghossian was sentenced to attend school-mandated coaching even though ”the probe went nowhere.” You are punished even if you are not guilty.
Salem Witch Trials Recycled?
Arthur Miller’s 1953 play The Crucible told the story of the Salem witch trials in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692-93. In Salem, hysterical girls discovered that they could imprison adult authority figures they didn’t like simply by saying that they witnessed that adult practicing witchcraft. Sometimes those accused were executed by hanging.
Sound familiar? Young people drunk with the power to destroy anyone they choose with just an accusation. No proof required.
The Woke Cancel Lynch Mob
According to the Collins online dictionary, the definition of a lynch mob is “A lynch mob is an angry crowd of people who want to kill someone without a trial, because they believe that person has committed a crime.” The Woke Cancel Lynch Mobs want to get someone fired from their job and blacklisted from ever getting another job without a trial. The lynching is accomplished by an anonymous accusation, or an online petition collected on social media from people who are not required to testify under oath or to face the person they are accusing.
What To Do?
Ask your congressperson and senator to repeal Title IX.
Demand that all accusations of wrongdoing be handled by police and courts where the rule of law requires evidence, sworn testimony, facing the accuser, and a jury of peers.
Don’t repeat undocumented accusations. Instead, ask, “Where’s the evidence?” When no evidence is produced, say, “Get back to me when you have evidence.” Then ignore the whiny accusers until and unless they produce evidence.
Don’t send your children to colleges accepting Federal Government money and therefore under the jurisdiction of Title IX. Let them take online courses or attend vocational colleges. Encourage them to get a job where they can learn on the job.
Direct your children to the Mike Rowe Foundation, where they can apply for a scholarship.
Stop donating to any college that permits Title IX “probes.” Including your alma mater.
