Trump And Republicans Are The Undisputed Kings Of "Cancel Culture"

But what about Lou Dobbs, Ed Henry, Melissa Francis, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Blake Neff, and Chris Stirewalt?
Roger Ailes, Gretchen Carlson, Bill O'Reilly, Bill Shine, and Eric Bolling?

Donald Trump, July 3, 2020:
One of their political weapons is "cancel culture" — driving people from their jobs, shaming dissenters and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees. This is the very definition of totalitarianism, and it is completely alien to our culture and our values, and it has absolutely no place in the United States of America.
It's likely no one in the United States has called for more boycotts and demanded more people be fired than Donald Trump. Here is an incomplete list of companies, products, and people he has said should be "cancelled":
All products made in China
Glenfiddich whiskey
New Balance
Under Armour
General Motors
Toyota Motor Corp.
Harley Davidson
New York Times
Washington Post
Rolling Stone
New York Magazine
Dallas Morning News
Arizona Republic
Wall Street Journal editorial board
ABC News
NBC News
Tourรฉ (MSNBC)
Chris Matthews (MSNBC)
Graydon Carter (Vanity Fair)
Charles Krauthammer (conservative writer)
Rich Lowry (National Review)
Jonah Goldberg (National Review)
Sopan Deb (CBS News)

Chris Cuomo (CNN)
Unknown employee at The Oklahoman newspaper
NFL players who don't stand for the National Anthem

A similar list of companies and people Trump has insulted would be much, much, longer.

In addition, conservatives have also called for boycotts of:

CPAC's Stage Design Is An Exact Replica Of Odal Rune Used By The SS In Nazi Germany
(And Appropriated By Current Neo-Nazis)

CPAC Stage Shaped Exactly Like A Nazi SS Symbol
P.S. The Trump campaign used symbolism and language associated
with the Nazis
three times in three weeks last summer.

Tucker's Researchers Spent All Day Online, Failed To Find Anything On QAnon: "It's Not Even A Website" (David Duke Told Trump Last July To Dump Pence And Have Carlson As VP)

We spent all day trying to locate the famous QAnon, which, in the end, we learned is not even a website. If it's out there, we could not find it. 

Then, we checked Marjorie Taylor Greene's Twitter feed because we have heard she traffics in disinformation, CNN told us, but nothing there. Next, we called our many friends in the tight-knit intel community. Could Vladimir Putin be putting this stuff out there? The Proud Boys? Alex Jones?

Who is lying to America in ways that are certain to make us hate each other and certain to destroy our core institutions? Well, none of the above, actually. It wasn't Marjorie Taylor Greene. It was cable news. It was politicians talking on TV, they're the ones spreading disinformation to Americans. Maybe they are from QAnon.
TucKKKer and his "research" team apparently have no clue that Fox News's website features a page dedicated to what you should know about the QAnon conspiracy.
The QAnon movement started online in 2017

Newsweek, July 9, 2020:
David Duke, the former leader of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), is calling for President Donald Trump to nominate the talk-show host Tucker Carlson as his vice president.

The former KKK Grand Wizard urged Trump to pick the Fox News host as his next in command instead of Mike Pence in order to "save America." . . .

The white supremacist added that having Trump and Carlson in the White House is the only way to "stop the commie Bolsheviks."

"President Trump! You have one last chance to turn the tables, win this election and save America—and yourself ! Nominate Tucker Carlson for Vice President. This would energize your campaign beyond belief," Duke tweeted [from his now-deleted-and-banned account].


Weak, Sniveling, Spineless Republicans Are Blaming Things That Don't Even Exist For The Problems They Knowingly Created (Ted Cruz Is A Schumck Who Everyone Hates)

Republicans are blaming the Green New Deal and wind turbines for causing the severe power and water supply crisis in Texas (and several other states) that has left at least 80 people dead. And their bootlickers in the mainstream media are happy to spread these preposterous lies.

There are a few problems with those laughable excuses.

1. The Green New Deal does not exist.

2. Even if the Green New Deal did exist, Texas would not be affected because its power grid is isolated from federal regulations, having been deregulated and privatized. Blaming unicorns in New Zealand would make as much sense (or perhaps more sense since New Zealand actually exists).

3. Turbines work fine in much colder places such as the Arctic (or even throughout states north of Texas like Oklahoma or Iowa) because they are winterized. Ten years ago, Texas was told to winterize its turbines. Republicans ignored those warnings, because they did not want to spend (i.e., waste) the money.

4. The true cause of the power-grid failure has been natural-gas shortages and malfunctioning instruments at power plants. When state services are privatized, corporations will always cut costs to increase profits without caring about the fallout to customers because they operate a monopoly which is protected by the government (in Texas's case, protected by Republicans).

5. Renewable energy accounts for about 10% of Texas's power in the winter. Even if every turbine in the state suddenly stopped working, there should still be plenty of power production.

6. Republicans run Texas's power grid, so if turbines are the problem (which they are not), then Republicans are at fault for installing them. But if morons are going to believe someone thousands of miles away who had nothing to do with the situation is at fault, why not blame her? (Some of the same people forced to burn their own furniture for warmth are probably cursing AOC.)

Republicans are unable to take responsibility for anything. It's fuckin' unbelievable. Nothing could possibly be their fault and they whine and pout and throw a tantrum like a two-year-old who has missed his nap every single time they get asked why they fucked up. How can so many people not only tolerate these weak, immature, cowardly, sniveling, spineless frauds, but proudly support them?

Ted Cruz is such a schmuck. 

Trump says Cruz's wife is ugly and Cruz promptly prostrates himself at Trump's feet, pledging eternal devotion. Trump accuses Cruz's father of helping to kill JFK and Cruz offering to give Trump's private parts daily massages.

Ted Cruz made fun of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for saying she feared for her life because of death threats from Cruz's fans during Trump's MAGA insurrection. Yet while Lyin' Ted was gathering his family (forming a caravan?) and crossing the border hoping for better living conditions, AOC was busy raising several millions of dollars to help people who voted for Cruz because they were suffering Americans unfortunate enough to live in the red state Cruz had immediately abandoned.

From Cruz's Lengthy History of Hypocrisy

Cruz criticized then-President Obama for spending too much time golfing while there was a border crisis in Texas. "I think the President should actually stand up and do his job as commander-in-chief, should spend less time on the golf course and more time doing the job to which he was elected," Cruz told reporters. A month earlier, Cruz called Obama an "absentee president" who was "not focused on the people who are hurting" during a humanitarian crisis.

Cruz said "if the only terrorists attacked a golf course, that might actually get the White House's attention. Holy cow, this is serious!"

Cruz said then-New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie "should go back to the beach," referencing the outrage surrounding Christie's beach trip with his family while the state's government was shut down. (Cruz was also responding to Christie's charges of hypocrisy because Cruz requested federal aid for Texas following Hurricane Harvey while opposing aid for the northeast after Hurricane Sandy.)

August 2020

Only a few months ago, Cruz mocked California's alleged "failed energy policies".

December 2020 

This was so recent, most Americans might even remember it. Cruz attacked Austin Mayor Steve Adler for going to Mexico during the coronavirus pandemic.
Why does everyone take an instant dislike to Ted Cruz?

It saves time.
Everyone Hates Ted.
