(RepublicanDaily.org) – Cancel culture reared its ugly head again earlier this year when Disney’s Lucasfilm fired actress Gina Carano over her social media activity. While the hard left’s cheerleaders offered their full support to Disney, more reasonable commentators were once again left pointing to the glaring issues that cancel culture presents in terms of free expression.
On Monday, May 17, a new advocacy group aiming to “[oppose] cancel culture and [fight] back against the woke mob and their enablers” was launched. Mike Davis, a former senior staffer of Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), is president and founder of Unsilenced Majority. In a statement, Davis said the group aims to address the threats posed by “corporate censorship, thought-policing, and politically motivated blacklists and boycotts.”

Other senior members of the group at this point include attorneys, media commentators, and figures who have worked in politics and public administration.
Those who espouse cancel culture have weaponized the compassion of ordinary people to further their political agendas. Efforts like this one could help to teach people there’s no need to vilify someone just because they’ve posted a few controversial tweets.
