The woke cancel mob has developed a taste for its own kind — and at the top of the menu are left-wing Hollywood celebrities.
The recent cancellation of Chrissy Teigen, Billie Eilish, and Lin-Manuel Miranda shows that everyone is fair game now, even stars who have spent years building up left-wing credentials. Wokeness no longer discerns between right and left in its hunger to destroy everything it touches.
At least eleven Hollywood celebrities have seen their livelihoods come under attack from the cancel mob in recent months. The vast majority are left-wing or have expressed left-of-center views, which might have insulated them not so long ago but now offer no protection from the wrath of the woke.
“Under the suggestion and guidance of the BIPOC members” of the group, a New Zealand youth environmental protest group inspired by teen activist Greta Thunberg disbanded, accusing itself of racism.
School Strike 4 Climate’s Auckland chapter wrote on June 12:
School Strike 4 Climate Auckland is disbanding as an organisation. This is under the suggestion and guidance of the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) members of our group, as well as individual BIPOC activists and organisations. We are not holding any more climate strikes in the Auckland region. … BIPOC communities are disproportionately affected by climate change, so the fight for climate justice should be led by their voices and needs, not Pākehā ones.
“Pākehā” means white New Zealanders.
An employee of Seattle, who has been called a “social justice warrior” and is now a progressive candidate for the King County Council threatened to blow up a school bus, then called middle school students cowards as they fled.
According to court documents obtained by The Post Millennial, Ubax Gardheere boarded the Highline School District bus on Jan. 12, 2010 as it travelled on its morning route. Once aboard the bus, which was heading to Chinook Middle School, Gardheere demanded the driver tell his dispatcher “that a national security incident was going on.”
Gardheere then began yelling at the children about America’s relationship with Somalia, according to police reports. An audio recording of the incident demonstrated that when the driver told Gardheere to leave the bus she said, “You need to calm yourselves down ’cause I could have a bomb. Look how loose my clothes are.”
Deputy Prosecutor Gretchen Holmgren said students were afraid for their safety and as students fled through the rear emergency exit of the bus, Gardheere began screaming that they were “cowards” for abandoning their classmates.
Holmgren wrote the court, “While speaking with the middle school students, the defendant stated that she might have a bomb and might have a gun. When students attempted to escape out the back of the bus, she called them cowards and told them they would be responsible if something happened to their classmates. Several students believed she had a weapon of some kind and many feared for their lives.”
“They just view themselves as special. It’s selfishness and in that respect it’s divisive and can only lead to trouble.
“I can’t believe that TV stations give some of these lunatics the space.”
The former punk rocker claimed that their attitudes can lead to “trouble” and are “divisive”.
Critical theory and other socialist-adjacent woke theories are all about jealousy.
Take a gander at this very woke screed against the violence of “lookism” that is perpetuating deep-seated injustices against normal-looking people everywhere:
I have to admit, she used all the proper terminology.
She’s (seriously) saying that attractive people are inherently bad because their beauty makes everyone else look ugly in comparison.
She then equates this to systemic oppression and infers that said system needs to be torn down.
What she doesn’t tell us is how we insert “beauty equity” or “good looks reparations” to tear down this “system”!
If you follow the logic through, she’s saying that beautiful people need to become less beautiful (think through how that would be accomplished) and justifies it by saying they deserve it because they are bad.
Of course this is ridiculous.
