The Cancel Cult
There’s this challenge about Cancel Culture. Okay if you want me to be honest I haven’t been canceled yet. One day I will be. You probably won't know about it. However I'll know about it. My job will be gone. My house will be gone. I will be getting stalked by creeps who keep telling me to go kill myself. I will have SWAT teams sent to my house in the hopes I'll die in the crossfire. Cancel Culture should be called the Cancel Cult. You know what makes it worse? It plays out like a dystopian Sci-fi novel. Either way it's nasty and this cult will not stop until you are nothing but the ashes of a rubbed out cigarette.
It brings out the worst in humans too. People get mad at the most inane little things. I mean this is the generations that do little clapback images saying "Retweet this to scare a Transphobe" or "Oh my gosh! You got Covid? Lol, what a little bitch!" My least favorite one is, "I hope someone takes a baseball bat to your face." I'm paraphrasing here but these three instances are the tip of the iceberg. The Cancel Cult usually goes after people that they decided did them wrong or they pester businesses to change something to pander to someone else. Like when people had decided to push Critical Race Theory in schools. The study evolved into Critical Bias Theory. It glorifies oppressor versus victim and eventually turns your average college student or impressionable person into that douchebag friend everybody hates.
What the Cancel Cult wanted to be was cosmic horror. The avenging nightmare that scares the unending evil. The lynch mod tearing apart the boogie man. In reality, we can get the internet from anywhere. The Cancel Cult is a messy individual, an emotional trigger, and typing all the time into tiny screens. Once they wrong the wrong person, the dirty laundry that got aired is that of a grifter who is sad, alone, and addictied to the seratonin that comes from a heroic high horse.
Then again I am not an expert on Cancel Culture. I've just been a fly on the wall trying to support my favorite hobbies and art forms. Cancel Cults keep being barnacles on a sea turtle shell or a plastic straw up a sea turtle's nose. Most of them are preaching one moral and doing the opposite. They can kill a franchise in a matter of days. Yet stay safe out there folks. Practice internet safety and avoid the Cancel Cult.
