Cancel culture has spun out of control in America.
Both public and private figures have been “canceled” for absurd reasons.
And one former Senator went on Bill Maher and said something disgraceful about actress Gina Carano.
The culture war escalated when actress Gina Carano was fired from Disney’s The Mandalorian for expressing views that weren’t perfectly in lockstep with the Left.
Carano isn’t particularly a staunch conservative, but she voted for Donald Trump, which makes her pure evil in the eyes of the Left.
Old school liberal Bill Maher – despite his Trump Derangement Syndrome – has been one of the few public figures on the Left pushing back against the “woke” insanity.
He had former North Dakota senator Heidi Heitkamp on his show – who got blown out by double digits in her last election – and she exemplified everything wrong with current cancel culture.
During a discussion, Heitkamp nonchalantly referred to Carano as a “Nazi” and a “white supremacist.”
When Maher pressed her on the comment, she doubled down.
Here we have more of the dehumanizing phase of cancel culture.
-Repeat lies over and over until the population takes them as “truth”.
False, disturbing & disgusting language coming from a former US Senator. @HeidiHeitkamp

It’s disgusting how members of the Left loosely throw around defamatory terms because they know there are no consequences.
Carano could sue, but defamation cases are difficult for public figures to win in the United States.
The only way to fight back against the slander is through the culture war.
That’s why it’s vital for Republicans, conservatives, and libertarians to contribute to culture, and push back against “woke” insanity whenever possible.
Ceding the culture to the Left for half a century is how the country has reached this tenuous moment.
Freedoms are being eroded without any laws being passed.
The corporate-controlled press, Big Tech, and Hollywood have created an environment where stepping outside of groupthink could come with harsher penalties than most laws could mete out.
It’s going to be a long battle to rebalance the culture, but it can be done.
