It's terrifying. In SD, the R's keep trying to ban it, even though no one has actually attempted to do it. Not once. Just the IDEA of it is deeply troubling!
Nothing should be addressed until it happens. Got it. And brilliant.

On a deeply important issue like that, I think it can be addressed when and if it happens. The state legislature does not need to be involved.

We had a girl on the football team when I was in HS. How on earth did did we navigate where she could change without guidance from the state GOP leaders?

The response to all those things is that everyone confirming they happened is lying. Boom. Still never happened.
Which is why it is so hard to dialogue with the left. They know they cannot argue the merits so try to find something on the periphery where they can make a small point. Then try to claim an equivalence. Press corps tried to consistently do this with Kayleigh McEnany but she was so good at sticking to facts and stats, which are the bane of the left.

Argue what? Most of your claims are pointless whining about insignificant things. True or false doesn't matter.

Case in point. If you think free speech on campus, condemning burning and looting, allowing fox news to remain on the air, girls playing against girls in sports, allowing a newspaper to print a true story are insignificant things then we do not have enough in common to make further dialogue worthwhile.

So dems/media roundly criticized the looting and burning? (Two days ago joe scarborough even said they didnt.)
So cnn air has not talked about canceling fox news? (Brian Stelter just did among others.)
So chikfila was never forced to stop giving to salvation army? (Easily fact checked.)
So editors from NYT and philly inquirer werent fired for alliwing articles condemning looting and burning? (Easily fact checked.)
So boys arent competing in girls' sports? (Check out what has happened in connecticut girls state track meet 2017-2019.)
So there is no threat at u of dismissing students or professors for use of undesired pronouns? (Easily fact checked.)

Of course all of the above has happened and your attempt to minimize its impact through an example of a player on company time kneeling before the flag while wearing pig policeman doesnt remotely provide an equivalence. Like comparing an elephant to a mouse.
One or two or even a few people do not speak for everyone. Not to mention that a few of the things you posted have little to do with "cancel culture". I'm guessing that you were just typing things in a blind rage and forgot.

Doesn't mean that a couple of those things don't qualify. But once again....posting about "cancel culture" when the right has been doing it too is as tone deaf as it gets.

Your last paragraph again tries to justify the "cancel culture" stuff coming from the right. All it does it show how hypocritical you and the rest of the right are. "WELL WHEN WE DID IT.....THERE WAS A GOOD REASON!" lol. Yeah....keep telling yourself that,

Broke posted in the "cancel culture" thread a good list of Trump doing the same as well. I'm guessing these also don't qualify:

A list of people and things Donald Trump tried to get canceled before he railed against 'cancel culture'

Here's the list in chronological order.

August 2012: Trump says Black journalist Touré, then a co-host of the MSNBC show "The Cycle," should be "forced to resign" for comments in which Touré uttered a variant of the N-word while arguing that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was using racially coded language to try to make President Barack Obama seem frightening. (Touré had apologized before Trump's demand.)
November 2012: Trump suggests the firing of then-MSNBC host Chris Matthews for saying, on the night of Obama's victory, that he was "so glad" Hurricane Sandy had occurred, because of its political impact. (Matthews had apologized before Trump's suggestion.)
December 2012: Trump calls for the firing of Vanity Fair magazine Editor Graydon Carter, with whom he had feuded for years, over what he declares the magazine's "worst ever issue."
December 2012: Trump says "Scots should boycott Glenfiddich garbage" because the whisky brand selected Michael Forbes, a farmer who refused to sell his land to make way for a Trump golf course, as "Top Scot" of the year.
March 2013: Trump says, "Everyone should cancel HBO until they fire low life dummy Bill Maher! Get going now and feel good about yourself!"
July 2013: Trump asks people to "boycott & cancel subscriptions" to Rolling Stone magazine because of a cover featuring Boston Marathon terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
October 2013: Trump urges "everybody possible" to "cancel their subscription" to New York Magazine over an insulting tweet about Trump's marriage from Dan Amira, who was online editor at the time.
March 2014: After Trump is left off a CNBC list of the most influential business leaders, he says, "Stupid poll should be canceled—no credibility."
May 2014: Trump calls for the firing of, or at least an apology from, the person at The Oklahoman newspaper who wrote a headline calling then-Oklahoma City Thunder NBA star Kevin Durant "Mr. Unreliable." (The newspaper had already apologized.)
June 2014: Trump says people should "Boycott Mexico" until a Marine reservist who was jailed for crossing the border with loaded guns is released from prison. (He was released later in the year.)
April 2015: Trump suggests that conservative writer Jonah Goldberg, then a senior editor of National Review magazine, should be forced to resign for writing that Trump had been "tweeting like a 14-year-old girl" in response to another conservative writer calling Trump a clown. Trump also suggests Fox News anchor Bret Baier should stop having Goldberg on his show.
June 2015: When Spanish-language television network Univision severed its business relationship with Trump after his campaign launch speech, in which he labeled Mexican immigrants as criminals and rapists, Trump tweets, "Anyone who wants strong borders and good trade deals for the US should boycott @Univision."
July 2015: Trump calls for a boycott of Macy's after Macy's discontinued its business dealings with him over those same comments about people from Mexico. Trump also tweets "Great" when someone tells him that people are canceling their Macy's credit cards.
August 2015: Trump calls for the firing of the late conservative writer and Fox News commentator Charles Krauthammer, a regular Trump critic.
September 2015: After National Review editor Rich Lowry argued on Fox News that rival Republican candidate Carly Fiorina had "cut off (Trump's) balls with the precision of a surgeon" in a primary debate, Trump says: "Incompetent @RichLowry lost it tonight on @FoxNews. He should not be allowed on TV and the FCC should fine him!" (Lowry responds, "I love how Mr. Anti-PC now wants the FCC to fine me. #pathetic.")
December 2015: Trump calls for the firing of then-CBS News journalist Sopan Deb and NBC/MSNBC journalist Katy Tur over reporting he disputed about how he handled protesters during a rally speech.
February 2016: Trump says people should "boycott all Apple products" until the company stops fighting a government request to break into the cell phone of a deceased California terrorist.
February 2016: Trump says Fox News should fire Republican strategist and commentator Karl Rove for being insufficiently positive about his victory in the Nevada caucuses.
February 2016: Trump calls on the Wall Street Journal to fire its editorial board, which had criticized him, and its pollster, which showed results he didn't like.
March 2016: Trump proposes a boycott of Megyn Kelly's Fox News show, complaining that it is too negative toward him.
September 2016: After the Dallas Morning News and Arizona Republic newspapers endorse Hillary Clinton for president and USA Today declares Trump unfit for the office, Trump says, "The people are really smart in cancelling subscriptions to the Dallas & Arizona papers & now USA Today will lose readers! The people get it!"
September 2017: Trump tweets that NFL players and other athletes who don't stand for the National Anthem should be told, "YOU'RE FIRED." He says in another tweet, "Fire or suspend!" And at a rally, he says, "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners when somebody disrespects our flag to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he's fired, he's fired.' "
October 2017: Suggesting he could use the power of the state against media entities he dislikes, Trump muses about challenging the broadcast licenses of NBC and other networks over their news coverage. (He again broached the subject of reviewing NBC's license in September 2018.)
November 2017: Trump calls for a boycott of CNN.
August 2018: Trump tweets, "Many @harleydavidson owners plan to boycott the company if manufacturing moves overseas. Great! Most other companies are coming in our direction, including Harley competitors."
June 2019: Trump suggests people stop "using or subscribing" to AT&T to pressure the company to make changes at CNN, which it owns.
September 2019: Trump suggests that actress Debra Messing should be fired for calling on a news outlet to publish the names of people attending a Trump fundraiser and for a tweet promoting a church sign that said "a black vote for Trump is mental illness." (Messing had apologized for the tweet about the church sign.)
January 2020: Trump says The New York Times should fire columnist Paul Krugman, a winner of the Nobel Prize in economics, for having incorrectly predicted a global recession after Trump's victory in 2016.
May 2020: The day after Twitter appended a fact check link to dishonest Trump claims about mail-in voting, Trump threatens to shut down social media companies: "Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices. We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen."
May 2020: Trump seeks the firing of Chuck Todd, host of NBC's "Meet the Press," for the show playing a misleadingly shortened clip of comments by Attorney General William Barr. (Todd apologized, saying it was an inadvertent mistake.) Again broaching the power of the state, Trump tags the accounts of the Federal Communications Commission, which regulates television, and its chairman, Ajit Pai.

Quite the opposite. Reread whoever you claimed to be melting down and then reread your reply. Then reread mine where I wrote that I never heard the guy's show but get why people don't like him. You overreact so much. You have no idea that you are the one whining when you claim others are. I'm only talking about you.
Right from the first page you can see your fellow righties getting upset . Not surprised to see you continue in denial and ignore that. It's the meltdown mode righties MO these days. Maybe if you all claim to be victims, it will magically become true.

Sounds exactly like what all the righties were doing leading up to January 6th and beyond. Quickly pivoted from ignoring to excusing.
January 6th? That was just a bunch of goofballs taking selfies. What's the big deal?

Oh, and don't forget: COVID is just like seasonal flu.

Canceling of Drew Brees position on the flag happened. Canceling of conservative thought throughout the nation is happening through diversity trainings. Attempting to cancel conservative shows thru pressuring advertisers is happening (Media Matters). Canceling a newspaper for running a true story at a most critical time happened. These are all very big deals in and of themselves and also for what they show is going on in each area at large. By contrast, none of those things mentioned by trump happened as no one on the right took him seriously. The left, though, is very serious.

When was Fox News taken off the air? When was a newspaper barred from printing a true story? When was someone arrested for exercising free speech on campus? Sounds awful! Please share the frightening details of these things that totally happened.

Every day, as many as one male athletes contemplates what athletic glory he could attain if he only cut off his penis.
Forget COVID relief and the minimum wage. Congress needs to get their priorities in order and address this epidemic....

Canceling chikfila to get at salvation army happened.
No they weren't cancelled.

Its beyond dumb to put a restaurant that is closed Sundays in an Airport, that alone would disqualify them for anyone with a brain. I love Chick-fil-A chicken sandwiches.

Chick-fil-A paid a price for their bigoted founder, that is why they are under a microscope.

They still got a spot in the Falcons football stadium....even though they're not open on...Sundays. But let golf dry his tears on his MyPillow before you tell him.

Right wing groups do the same thing on campuses. Chikfila made a business decision. Canceling editors jobs? Source on that? Drew Brees never got "canceled". Conservative do the exact same thing. How about the calls of "fake news"? Probably the largest scale "cancel culture" example around. What news paper got "canceled".

These aren't big deals. Either nothing got "canceled" or you victim righties completely blew it out of proportion because you are snowfalkes.

Again....Trump has a list of things he called to be "canceled". And his cult following absolutely agreed. The difference is that the left doesn't whine like the right does. Not even close. The righties just thnik that their calls of cancelation are warranted. Sad, but true. Suck it up and face the facts.

Drew Brees was far from cancelled. He walked back his comments because of how they went over with his teammates not "the left." And the NBA changed what they allowed players to do this season versus last summer in response to Trumpsters whining and boycotting. The very cancel culture they're whining about.

Exactly. Never happened. Just faux outrage from victims.
