i do not think it is "cancel culture” that these different prominent, famous Republicans are getting contracts or deals or their insanely stupid social media accounts taken away because of last week, it is however extremely funny
Do these people who obsess over “cancel culture” as a “new” phenomenon ever use a search engine? One out of a billion examples is they can see how Eddie Murphy was forced to apologize many years ago over his past standup about gay people… and he continued to have a big career.
Is “cancel culture” real? Of course it is, to the extent is has virtually always been a thing, and people who obsess over it as a phenomenon of EXCLUSIVELY the left are boring as shit and have no idea what they’re talking about, and have no historical memory beyond last tuesday.
Oh no Josh Hawley got his dumb, pointless book deal taken away, he only remains one of the single most powerful people in the country, pray for him
If a private company like this wanted to cut ties with a public figure because they’d been credibly accused of assault, or engaged in financial crimes, or got caught on verbally abusing people, no one bats an eye. Somehow, partaking in an effort to cancel democracy, an effort...
...that turns insanely violent, and gleefully continuing to perpetrate those authoritarian lies on the American people even after the bodies aren’t yet cold... that somehow doesn’t pass the threshold for the anti “cancel culture” whiners

icymi it very very early this morning, Trump killed her
if u don’t know much about Lisa Montgomery & her team’s efforts to get Trump, or someone, to spare her life, please check out the story. (I know, a lot going on)

Horrific lifestory of the perpetrator, horrific crime she committed, horrific killing spree that Trump/Barr inflicted
…and absolutely horrific system of killing federal inmates we have here, and the extra, arbitrary cruelty of the reality that if the scheduling had just been put off a week or so, the next administration would have very likely kept her alive and in prison.

As of Wednesday, President Trump has been briefed by some officials on possible security threats to the Biden inauguration, a White House official told The Daily Beast.
Shortly after this story posted, so did this:
Two other sources w/ direct knowledge of the matter say in private conversations over the past week, Trump has continued entertaining wildly incorrect conspiracy theories that antifascists had infiltrated the MAGA mob during the Jan. 6 riots at the Capitol & had caused trouble

It is maddeningly funny that the trump administration keeps trying to convince us that it made us “safer” than we were four years ago
Trump and the mainstream right generally reside in a vision of america that if u walk down any given alley in a North Dakota, ms-13 will still find you and make you listen to violent hip hop, provided Obama/Biden is president. But in the actual Trump era, I cannot think...
...of any other time in my life, even post-9/11 and then during the days of the sniper in dc as a kid, where everyone who knew what was going on was genuinely concerned about simply going outside

"Trump Is About to Let This ‘Mentally Ill’ Woman Be Killed. In a Few Days, Biden Would Have Likely Spared Her.” thedailybeast.com/trump-will-let…
It looks like the conservative majority on the US Supreme Court is about to give the Trump administration another one of those executions they’ve been bloodlusting after.
As for the possibility of clemency from Trump, advocates for Lisa Montgomery have been trying for months to get the case in front of him. Her sister described to me during a tearful conversation last night a gutwrenching letter she had sent Trump. Knowledgeable sources have...

@jonathanvswan In all seriousness: last week, my final Daily Beast co-byline w/ @lachlan was about Trump trying to cancel democracy & fuck w/ his own VP w/ a violent mob. We started our partnership four years ago w/ a story about fucking Seb Gorka, and we ended on that...

In case you’re wondering how the president’s been doing this weekend… thedailybeast.com/stewing-in-the…
Trump is bitching about how Democrats are hurting “the country” with their removal / second-impeachment talk, as he plots a victory-lap tour in the coming days. And Jason Miller, a top Trump aide, says the following:
“Be careful of what you wish for. Big Tech, Big Media, and their friends in the national Democratic Party have a unique ability to overreach, resulting in a strengthening of President Trump’s political base.”

White House spokespeople didn’t bother commenting.
