Former Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken says the “woke” era and cancel culture is dangerous for Democrats politically.
Franken, former head writer and performer on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” revealed that he personally knows many comedians who won’t perform on college campuses anymore as a result of cancel culture.
“You used to do pretty sophisticated, edgy stuff that you had to think about, and now anything, anybody who can possibly take offense can find a way to take offense,” Franken said during a discussion moderated by Howard Fineman that was organized by Jews United for Democracy. “And it really is too bad and stultifying for our debate, and it’s not good.”
Even though my foundation applications were sponsored by the three leading poets of America, Ezra Pound, E.E. Cummings, and Elizabeth Bishop, all of the foundations refused to sponsor this research. I then wrote up my findings to date, and in 1950 began efforts to market this manuscript in New York. Eighteen publishers turned it down without comment, but the nineteenth, Devin Garrity, president of the Devin Adair Publishing Company, gave me some friendly advice in his office. “I like your book, but we can’t print it,” he told me. “Neither can anybody else in New York. Why don’t you bring in a prospectus for your novel, and I think we can give you an advance. You may as well forget about getting the Federal Reserve book published. I doubt if it could ever be printed.”
William F. Jasper, senior editor of The New American magazine, interviews MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell regarding his documentary on election fraud “Absolute Proof,” his censorship battles with Big Tech and Big Media, the cancel culture attacks on him and his company, and the lawsuit against him by Dominion Voting Systems. Lindell anticipates his lawsuit to reach the Supreme Court, at which time he states all of the evidence will come out and vindicate the claims made in his film regarding Dominion and Smartmatic’s role in the 2020 election. The New American also reached out to Dominion Voting Systems to request an interview with CEO John Poulos. At the time of this posting, we had not heard back from Dominion. We will be following up with that interview if Mr. Poulos responds to our invitation.

Updated February 1, 2020—This list, originally published in June 2020, will be updated periodically. The National Association of Scholars counts 122 academic cancellations in the United States and Canada. If you know of additional professors, administrators, or students who have been canceled, please let us know at email@example.com.
According to Dictionary.com, cancel culture “refers to the popular practice of withdrawing support for (canceling) public figures and companies after they have done or said something considered objectionable or offensive. Cancel culture is generally discussed as being performed on social media in the form of group shaming.” This new form of mob rule has dominated virtually every sector of American life for the last several years: politics, journalism, music & entertainment, sports, business, and of particular interest to the National Association of Scholars, higher education.
In this fascinating video series, ‘Spiritual Warfare and Communism‘ Colorado-based Roman Catholic priest, theologian and exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger explains the many close relationships between socialist/communist activists and political leaders, communist revolution and governance, and the manipulative techniques of the demonic.
In a recent article on LewRockwell.com entitled “Imposing the Steal: America’s Great Struggle Session,” Vasko Kohlmaher explained how a tool of twentieth-century totalitarians was “public humiliation and torment” of those with “wrong thinking.” The targeted individuals were compelled to confess their wrongdoing, apologize to society, and repent for the error of their thinking.
The reason for this is that “To totalitarians truth is as the cross is to the devil.” Totalitarians “force their victims to give up that which is true and accept that which is false.” As F.A. Hayek wrote in the Road to Serfdom, in totalitarian societies “truth” is not discovered by research, education, discussion and debate, and the scientific method, but is merely announced by the authorities.
Yes, the Third Reich is undergoing resurrection, but not by white supremacists. It is the white liberals in the Democrat Party and their presstitute propaganda machine—New York Times, CNN, NPR, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and the rest of the presstitute whores— that comprise the new Nazi movement. The only difference is that this time the target is white gentiles.
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum says that “the goal of Nazi propaganda was to demonize Jews and to create a climate of hostility and indifference toward their plight.” In actual fact, the purpose was more severe. The purpose was to deprive Jews of their dignity and the protection of law. This has now happened to white gentiles in the United States. For example, as I reported earlier today, Jodi Shaw, a white female staff member of Smith College, in former times a prestigeous women’s college, now an anti-white propaganda institution, resigned, accusing the college of creating a “racially hostile environment” for white people.

I was banned by Twitter this week. Trust me, if you’re a conservative or a patriot, read this story carefully. Because you’re next.
I’ve argued for quite some time that this was coming. I warned that if Joe Biden were elected, Democrats would overplay their hand. They would open the borders and let the whole world in. They’d legalize millions of people who are in this country illegally. They’d confiscate guns. They’d try to destroy the energy industry in the name of climate change. They’d tax and regulate small businesses to death. They’d make election fraud easy, legal and permanent. They’d pass a slew of executive orders that benefit China. And worst of all, they’d intimidate, censor and ban.
