The left’s cancel culture is a growing problem in America.
No one is safe from its reaches.
And Trey Gowdy found out this disturbing truth about Democrats and cancel culture.
Trey Gowdy is once again hosting “Fox News Primetime.”
During a recent episode, Gowdy hosted former Democrat Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard to discuss the dangers of the left’s embrace of cancel culture.
Gabbard—who has spoken out against the left’s push to permit biological males to compete in girls’ sports—warned Americans that “woke” left-wing mobs would lead Americans to a violent place through its commitment to cancel culture.
Former Congresswoman Gabbard told Gowdy that the essence of America is free speech and that the American traditions call for opposing viewpoints to share the public square where the public can debate their merits.
“Freedom for every single one of us to be able to share our ideas and debate them, to argue them, to agree or to disagree, to pick and choose in this marketplace of ideas, those that we deem to be right or wrong, to be superior or inferior, and even for those ideas that may be misleading or dangerous, that in this free marketplace, we have a right to then defeat those ideas with superior ones,” Gabbard explained. “And others have the freedom to choose what they want to believe or not believe or what they want to adhere to.”
Gabbard added that the right to free speech comes from the fact that everyone is a child of God which means at the end of the day even people who disagree still have that in common.
And Gabbard contended that the shared sense of humanity is what allows society to function even if people disagree on any particular issue.
“The main issue with this is when you look at our rights and freedoms, and our ability to debate them, and respectfully came out the other end agreeing or disagreeing as you and I have over the years, it is based on the fact that we are all children of God. And recognizing that, we then treat each other with respect and respect this freedom that we have,” Gabbard added.
But Gabbard warned the Fox News audience about the dark path cancel culture leads its followers down.
Gabbard cautioned that the purest form of cancel culture is ISIS and Al Qaeda killing heretics and apostates in the name of radical Islam.
“Let’s look down the path and say where does this cancel culture lead us?” Gabbard added. “You see the final expression of cancel culture in Islamist terrorist groups like ISIS and Al Qaida, who basically go and behead those who are — they deem to be infidels or heretics in order to silence them, in order to protect others from being misled by those heretical ideas.”
In America right now, woke mobs are canceling cartoon characters, celebrities and even liberal reporters.
No one is safe from the adherents of identity politics.
And Tulsi Gabbard is cautioning Americans that society must take an off-ramp before everyone ends up in a dark and dangerous place.
