Most Americans realize cancel culture is a massive threat to our democracy, but I fear it may be too late to halt it

In the past year that I have been writing for RT, it seems to me that the vast majority of articles that I have penned have been in regards to cancel culture. Specifically about the effects that it has on our society at large. With every new article, it seems to me that it's getting worse. Whether it's Gina Carano getting fired for being too conservative, or Dr. Seuss posthumously getting canceled, every single week someone else seems to be on the chopping block. All for imagined crimes that really only range from existing in a different time period or just having a different opinion.

Don't get me wrong. When I see a poll that tells me over 60% of Americans see that there’s a problem here, I'm glad. After all, the first step to fixing a problem is recognizing that you have it in the first place. The issue that I have is that, as a society, I fear that we're not addressing it quick enough. Beyond that, it seems that for some people there are caveats when it comes to this. It was nice for Bill Maher to acknowledge that he's on the political side that does it the most, but he prefaced it by taking a shot at Republicans. He even acted as if it's something that some Republicans deserve. It's that snide attitude........
