Cancel Culture Friendly Fire
« on: March 07, 2022, 09:16:21 AM »

I read this article today in the local Danbury paper... actor Fredric March (Oscar for Best Years of Our Lives), once keynote speaker for the NAACP's celebration of Brown v. BOE, had his name removed from buildings at University of Wisconsin because in college, he was once elected to an honorary society, unaffiliated with the Klan, that used the same name tongue-in-cheek.

Not really trying to dredge up all the points and counterpoints, just found it a fascinating read.

I came to the position a while back that while I despise cancel culture, the elites are not going to stop doing it unless and until it hits them hard.  That's why I reveled in Chrissy Teigen's cancellation.  She is among the worst of the worst at trying to cancel people, so when it bit her in the *** I was thrilled.  Not because I think the method is fair or moral, but because those who are unfair and immoral should have to live under the rules they establish for others.
