Really? That’s simply absurd.
And yet cartoonists like Stantis are still allowed to spew their BS.
A MUCH truer ‘toon would be Trump muzzling anyone who doesn’t agree with him.
Change the word “Cancel” to “Conservative”… much more appropriate. My guess is Stantis’ paycheck originates with that crowd.
Stantis: Would you consider VOTER SUPPRESSION an example of Cancel Culture?
“Give me your tired, your poor, your hud- MMMPH! . . . "
The only response to CC so far has been “actions have consequences”. Might need to have something snappier and more memorable.
It’s all in the marketing and for the T-shirts.
Many people have a lot of free time on their hands and what do they do?? Invent “first-world” problems, where there are none!!
You realize, of course, that Republicans ARE Cancel Culture. They are the ones who screamed at Starbucks about their cups. They are the ones who try to shut up — physically assaulting — protests against police violence. You guys try to cancel anyone and everyone who doesn’t meet your power-elite standards. Only, the radical right uses violence.
Is that Scott trying to suppress my right to cancel his culture?
rightwing crybabies making up things to cry about…
It’s spelled Qancel Culture, Mr. Stantis and is actually Consequence Culture.
Simple terms: political correctness with another name
So this is about white grievance trying to overturn(cancel) a free and fair election?
Do the Republicans realize that they are canceling the Republican Party?
Define “cancel” and “culture.” The alliteration in the slogan phrase makes it cute so that it passes smoothly and quickly through the public consciousness like mineral oil through the digestive tract. Then —
Define “truths” versus “lies.”
Define “facts” versus “alternative facts.”
Define “win” versus “lose.”
Define “liberty” versus “chaos.”
The Trump Administration had (very much more than previous administrations) cynically blurred the distinctions between those concepts, in some cases reversed them as to being good or bad things.
List “The Seven Heavenly Virtues” (Faith, Hope, Charity, Fortitude, Justice, Temperance, Prudence) versus “The Seven Deadly Sins,” (Pride, Greed, Lust, Envy, Gluttony, Wrath, and Sloth) to judge whether or not modern commercial and political “cultures” have effectively, if not purposely, reversed their social acceptances.
Can a moral, stable society hold together long with these insidious reversals?
Define “well-guided citizenry” versus “flock of sheep.” Define “shepherds” versus “rustlers.” Which one of each pair pertain to our present society and its leaders?
Hmmm, cancel culture. Well, it does fit that the trumpublicons would use such a term. After all, what “cancel culture” really says is that we should cancel culture, like get rid of movies, television, books, music, art, dance and all such like. Certainly these are all things trumpublicons seem to have little interest in except for any propaganda value it might present.
Cancelling the votes of the majority to impose your bigoted authoritarian minority is olay though?
“Cancel Culture” used to go by another name. It was called “Shaming”, often used to shame people for being horrible people or doing horrible things. It was so effective that even the courts used it in sentencing for criminal behavior. Even Nixon quit his job rather than face the shame of being impeached. But, alas, there is no shame deep enough for the Trumpuglicons to become better people and work for the betterment of their people and country. Even now they are passing Jim Crow laws to keep people of color from the polls. Do they really think Americans will long stand for this? And, do they really think starting another civil war will end well for them? We need more people like Stacey Abrams to get out the vote no matter the obstacles and run these shameless politicians out on a rail. Tarred and feathered would work too.
Just saw parents teaching their children to cancel masks by burning them. Makes me nauseous just watching the kids parrot the crap their parents are yelling. Cancel science. Cancel medicine. Cancel specialists. Stupid is trying to rule. I wish they’d run away and get lost… for good.
It is difficult to defend the right of free speech to those who abuse it by yelling “Fire!” when there is none or to those who use insulting stereotypes to depict people of other races or create conspiracy theories to counter objective truths and divide the nation.
Our bill of rights was not intended to be a suicide pact. Why the “Republicans” have totally abandoned their inclusive progressive heritage is bewildering especially with the inevitable change in population demographics that is occurring.
Just because something has been part of a culture does not make it sacrosanct. Even you, Scott, would agree with that if the venue were switched to an Arabic culture.
Are you referring to the “Republicans”?
I read a lot of novels from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The novels can be great, but many of them, most of them, display disturbing attitudes about race. One of the most interesting examples is Huck Finn. When I was young, oh so many years ago, it was widely considered in liberal circles as progressive on race for its time. But in more recent times, many black teachers and students have drawn attention to pretty disturbing things about it, and some people now refuse to teach it in college courses. There’s quite a controversy about it, and at least one scholarly book debating the issue. (Probably more, but it’s not my field, so I don’t keep up.) My own feeling is that it should be taught, first because it really is a great book (whatever that means), but also because it tells us something important about the past, not something pleasant, but important, which is that even progressive voices are likely to have attitudes and presuppositions which are disturbing in later times. You can explain all that to a college class. But Dr. Seuss is for kids, and it’s not so easy to explain the disturbing images in (a few of) the Dr. Seuss books to a six-year old. If I were teaching six-year old children now, I would pass over those books and encourage them to read the ones that don’t have those disturbing images. At a certain point, it’s appropriate to start the discussion of stereotyping and race, and then it’s appropriate to go back and read those books. I loved On Beyond Zebra, by the way.
Jerk republicans tried to cancel the election they lost.
Anti democracy dictator loving Republicans would cancel the culture of the majority.
“Cancel Culture way back when worked on a different side: Poll Taxes, The Catholic Legion of Decency and the Hays Office, the House Un-American Activities Committees. “Cancel Culture” depends on whose Ox is being “canceled”. Whatever “society” considers wrong is subject to “cancelation.”
Pervert republicans would love to torture you.
So Scott do you think the Treatment of Colin Kaepernick is an Example of Cancel Culture?………?
Are You still proud of your Placard on Go Comics suggesting his actions are an insult to US Marines ( You know,….people that died defending free speech)
……That is because you are a DAMN Hypocrite
Trump cut back legal immigration and outright banned even visitors from some countries, but that wasn’t “cancel culture”…
If I were Liz Cheney, I would be suing Mr. Stantis for coloring her green like that.
That IS who you are portraying with your characterization of cancel culture, isn’t it?
I am sick of the specious and dishonest narrative that conservatives push about their victimhood vis-a-vis “cancel culture”. Pathetic whining is the nice description of their ridiculous self-pity.
Like violently overturning an election? Blackballing Colin Kaepernick? Disfranchising voters of color? Removing Dixie Chicks from the airwaves? Sanctioning Liz Cheney, Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, Pat Toomey and others? refusing them access to CPAC?
Or are you talking about the Cancel Culture Conspiracy theory, where history is corrected, companies make corrections based the realization that their product or conduct is no longer deemed acceptable, and consequences for those that continue despite knowing better?
Mr. Stantis, thank you for today’s editorial cartoon condemning the fascist idiots in Congress who tried to cancel Joe Biden’s legitimate 2020 election victory.
Gawd, this is a stupid, asinine cartoon.
Prostitute cartoonists are on the Republicans’ latest tantrum with that “cancel culture” BS, ignoring (of course) their own “cancel” hypocrisy. They must clutch their pearls in righteous wrath, offended (I say) offended by those mean ol’ Democrats who actually expect to rule as the majority party.
Republicans and their little trolls (including right-wing cartoonists) must do everything they can to feign victimization, while seeking total power for themselves.
I dunno – you were able to post a cartoon with a freaking SEX TOY. “Cancel culture” can’t be TOO bad.
In America you can say what you like but there will always be consequences. No law against that.
Remember when Nixon tried to cancel the hippie culture and the anti war culture?
Is Stantis trying to fill the “void” left by Rush’s demise?
Nope. That’s not it, Scott.
The GOP would like to melt her down and reuse the metal in a Statue of Mammon.
