I never thought I’d say this, but bravo Bill Maher!
Cancel culture is finally starting to worry leftists: They’re belatedly realizing that you can’t make friends with the cancelists.
You occasionally see a news item about someone who owns a boa constrictor or black mamba or Komodo dragon: They get to thinking whichever deadly reptile they live with has gotten fond of them over the years.
And then they get a little careless and discover the hard way that their deadly reptile doesn’t make friends. It’s happy to eat mice or goats or whatever, but it’s just as happy to eat you.
You can’t appease cancelists. They’re like French revolution guillotine addicts: They don’t care about you. They don’t care about making the world a better place. They just want to see another head roll, and the instant it does they’re eager for the next one.
So why try appeasing them at all? I say we do all follow Bill Maher’s excellent 3‑step method for dealing with cancelist idiots:
- Point at them.
- Laugh at them, and then
- Ignore them.
So I say again: Bra-VO, Mr. Maher!
