The Left has become all too comfortable in this current culture of cancel. The entire country should be cancelled for its history with slavery. The founders should be cancelled. Rip all their statues down! Change the names of buildings and signs! And don't get them started on Mount Rushmore.
And this bleeds over into one's personal history. Redemption means nothing to them. A pivot point, life changing, switch in thinking or behavior... counts for nothing. This means a tweet someone might have sent when they were a child is worthy of cancellation.
But it's funny how none of this applies when it's one of their own. Governor Northam had a photo of him in either black face or a Klan outfit. Why wasn't he cancelled? Jimmy Kimmel used to think black face was hilarious. His Karl Malone segment was a staple of his show. Why wasn't he held accountable to the standard they held Megyn Kelly? Who, by the way, merely made a comment about people that dress in black face to honor someone they admire. She was cancelled, but Kimmel, who dressed in black face in segment after segment after segment — to MAKE FUN of a black man — never took a hit.
Joe Biden is another great example. Here's a man that worked with segregationists, but is somehow exempt of cancellation. His crime bill was the exact opposite of what the Left is now proposing. How many black Americans were sent to prison because of that law? Again I ask... why is he exempt? How can Joe Biden look black people in the face and tell them they aren't really black if they don't vote for him? Would Donald Trump be allowed to say that?!
Maybe Biden's immune from the Left's cancel rage due to his "strong" family background. The left went after Trump's family history, and viciously knocked his roots. The New York Times went after the families business dealings, going all the way back to his father. The media has gone after his children, despite no criminal activity -which we can't say the same for Hunter - and the attacks even include the president's youngest child, Barron. I even remember John Oliver going after Trump's ancestral name. The "Make Donald Drumpf Again" episode broke records in viewership at HBO. Going back into a candidate's or politician's ancestral tree is clearly important to them.
So I guess that's why Joe Biden is so insulated. A lot of people have looked into Biden's family tree, focusing primarily on his mother's side of the family. Good hard working Irish ancestry! "Lunch Box Joe" who comes from a long line of blue collar coal miners. But what about Biden's FATHER'S ancestral line? Why has no one looked there? Wouldn't it be good to further build that blue collar "lunchbox Joe" image? And Biden's very proud of that part of his family. It's where his middle name comes from. Joe ROBINETTE Biden.
