Well, I'm following one particular sort of example at the moment: a number of lefty youtubers who, if they use twitter, will eventually tweet something that results in the hoards of lefty twitter police to swarm in an attempt to "cancel" the youtuber on allegations of being insufficiently woke. The latest is a youtube movie critic who apparently posted something "anti-Asian" or, more to the point, capable of being construed as such if taken out of context and given the least favorable interpretation. As soon as the swarm descended she just cancelled here Twitter account, which was then of course construed as further proof of guilt.

It's great fun to watch as a disinterested observer of blood sports, but the only reasonable ethical conclusion one should reach is that the vast majority of these people should never have been taught how to read and write.

I didn't think we were allowed to find that shit funny, anymore, rather than quivering in fear of the Woke Great Terror.

Yeah, I'm afraid of the Woke Great Terror roughly the same way Montgomery Burns was afraid of the Germans.

Irrespective of whether there's any truth to the original tweet, anyone who eats Cinnamon Toast Crunch deserves whatever's in there.

But Milkshake Duck was pretty funny.

Hey now cinnamon toast crunch is a perfectly appropriate once a year and you're extremely high snack.
