As of August 2020, we Americans are embroiled in an intensifying cold civil war. Democrats and the left are the aggressors. Cancel culture is a chief weapon. It’s not being employed wholesale — yet — but it is being selectively used as a means of instilling fear in the citizenry.
As morally repugnant as cancel culture is, in war, the question is invariably asked: must we fight fire with fire? Must we cancel the left and its allies to stop their Jacobin terror? It’s a legitimate question.
Decent Americans are, naturally, repulsed by the tactic — and, increasingly, personally threatened. Go crosswise the “progressives” and their leftist allies, and you could be unemployed, your reputation ruined.
