  1. Do you think that's always possible? Are there not people who are too far gone, too insincere, or committed too great offence that deserve some form of reprimand or removal from their present position of authority or power? Particularly if that person shows no interest or capability of remorse or reflection? I guess my issue here is that too often the criticisms of cancel culture are without context. It's become such a pejorative concept that any invocation of it against any target helps to produce some sort of backlash against what is sometimes a worthy effort to right an individ
  2. Caitlyn Jenner says she decided to run for Governor of California after hearing from her rich, private-jet flying friends that they’re tired of seeing poor people. Sounds like a winning message.
  3. True. But the same argument can be made about the criticisms of cancel culture. I do agree that too often people lose sight of what's important and forget the human element in all of this. Calling for someone to lose their jobs or be banned from various platforms rather than seeking to engage isn't going to help anything. That said, there are instances and times when removal is the only or best option. We here have been criticized for years for banning people that cannot or will not follow the rules or engage with others in a polite and sincere way. My problem with critic
  4. I don't think both are fair assessments. But I also think too much of this is painted with too broad of a brush. My issue with the criticisms of cancel culture are that they are often overly broad and often serve a political agenda. Conservatives like to paint all instances of cancel culture of the "woke" mob out to ruin anyone who disagrees with them. But as I've pointed out numerous times in this thread, they have a long history of trying to cancel people and groups of people they disagree with. Right now the number three Republican in the House of Representatives is about to l

  6. Prior to this morning I wasn’t sure who is more fucked: Gaetz or Rudy... But after the report that came out this morning, definitely Gaetz... And now it looks like Stone might be going down as well...
  7. Let's be respectful of the fact that we're an english only forum and english isn't everyone's first language. Hell, it's the only language I speak and I have my own challenges almost on a daily basis.
  8. I think Trump has reset a lot of things, for sure. The President after Trump was always going to be given a bigger laneway since he was following an utter clusterfuck. But there’s no debate that Biden has been way more progressive as President than Obama ever was. And yet we see a fraction of the amount of pushback against his agenda from the general public than we did with Obama. If Obama had given the same speech Biden just did there would be protests for months about the radical socialist plan being imposed by the dictator president. There isn’t even much of a “we can’t afford it” re
  9. If this was my lead singer I'd probably quit too. Hope he's okay. Maybe just got burned out.
  10. It amazes me how muted Republican and conservative response has been to Biden's speech and policy proposals. Twelve years ago Obama proposed expanding healthcare by giving people options in the private market. And people lost their fucking minds. Biden has positioned himself as far more liberal and progressive than Obama ever came close to. And no mass demonstrations against run-away government overreach. It couldn't have anything to do with Biden's skin complication, could it?
  11. This is not good: https://www.axios.com/india-covid-variants-crisis-pandemic-worse-25bdc451-f904-4598-865d-c2b468a415eb.html And yet there are people out there who claim the pandemic is a hoax...
  12. Just like Log Cabin Republicans. I honestly don't think objectively trans or gay people lean either left or right in their economic politics. But most will vote left (or centre-left) since that's the side that doesn't vilify them in order to scare or gin up their base.
