A few weeks ago I wrote an opinion piece about the scourge of cancel culture, and how the only way to ensure its demise is to force its progenitors to play by the idiot rules they set up. I used the sad example of Alexi McCammond, a Black woman who was offered the coveted position of Editor-in-Chief for Teen Vogue and was was let go on her first day after the discovery of some unflattering Tweets she made over a decade ago as a 17-year-old girl. I lamented that while McCammond didn’t deserve such silliness, these are the rules progressives like herself set up.

All that being said, and as much as I feel for McCammond, I just don’t think there is any other way this should go. She has to take her medicine. Not in regards to her past, but in regards to the future she – along with her colleagues on the Left – has cultivated with her intolerance. Conservatives have been ignored when we scream about the insanity of this type of cancel culture. We won’t be taken seriously until our liberal counterparts are also forced to face the consequences of this cancer.

It’s time for the Right to start being more vocal about making these people live by their own rules. If we don’t get to make the rules of engagement or control the flow of information, then it is our duty to enforce the rules as they stand. Liberals feel comfortable making such unforgiving rules, because they genuinely believe they will never apply to their side. They genuinely believe they are the “good guys” instead of just the Left.

It was one thing when the woke progressives started digging to “out” conservatives as awful people for things they said and did decades ago. That’s to be expected. It’s quite another when they come for their own, but that is the inevitable outcome of cancel culture. It is a ravenous beast that knows no satisfaction. Eventually it will eat its owners.

The latest nonsense is aimed at comedic actress Ellie Kemper, known for her role in
