The Left’s cancel culture has now expanded to point that you do not even have to be accused of ‘hate speech’ to have your life destroyed. Now just refusing to be confined to the Left’s Orwellian echo chambers will get you fired from your job.
Newsweek reported this week that a literary agency based in New York City fired one of its employees after her use of free-speech social media sites Parler and Gab was discovered. The employee was not fired for anything she said, but just for her mere presence on Parler and Gab.
In a statement released on Twitter, the literary agency actually had the audacity to claim that its repressive action was in the cause of unity, equality, and social justice:
The Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency was distressed to discover this morning, January 25th, that one of our agents has been using the social media platforms Gab and Parler. We do not condone this activity, and we apologize to anyone who has been affected or offended by this. The Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency has in the past and will continue to ensure a voice of unity, equality, and one that is on the side of social justice.
This is just a flavor of the ‘unity’ that we can expect in Uncle Joe’s America. What will be the next justification that the Maoist Red Guards on the Left will use threaten someone’s employment in the name of ‘unity’? Being spotted wearing a MAGA hat? Attending a Republican political rally? Attending Church?
I’m old enough to remember when the Left claimed to be all about ‘tolerance.’ But that was always a facade, only for when they were the ones on the outside. Now that they control all of the commanding heights of political and economic power in this country they can afford to let the mask fall and expose to us that the Left in America, just as it is elsewhere, is not based on persuasion but on repression.
