Canceling Pinker and Columbus

Here is the latest cancel attack:
The Woke are after Pinker again, and if he’s called a racist and misogynist, as he is in this latest attempt to demonize him, then nobody is safe. After all, Pinker is a liberal Democrat who’s donated a lot of dosh to the Democratic Party, and relentlessly preaches a message of moral, material, and “well-being” progress that’s been attained through reason and adherence to Enlightenment values.
Pinker is a very distinguished professor at Harvard, and is in no danger of being fired. Even if he were fired, he has gotten rich from his books, and does not need anyone's money.

I have criticized Pinker many times on this blog. He is a leftist Jewish atheist Trump-hater.

But he believes in Truth, and that makes him a White supremacist.

Among the complaints against Pinker is that he once defended a Jewish columnist who criticized a big company for firing someone for telling the truth.

The London Daily Mail reports:
A bestselling children’s author has been sacked after expressing support for fellow writer J. K. Rowling in the bitter row over transgender rights.

In the latest example of ‘cancel culture’, novelist Gillian Philip was last week jettisoned from her role writing titles for a major publishing company.

It came after the writer, who has penned a popular series of books for eight-to-12-year-olds, added the hashtag #IStandWithJKRowling to her Twitter handle.
So she is deprived of her livelihood for agreeing with another author that women are women.

In the coming revolution, people like her will be killed.

Statues of Christipher Columbus are being destroyed, also because a Minnesota junkie overdosed.

What is the purpose of that? There is no doubt that Columbus made a discovery that changed the world, and made modern life possible. Is that not something to celebrate?

I doubt that anyone really has a beef with Columbus or the statues. Columbus is just an excuse for rioters to show power, and to intimidate White culture. They will keep destroying, until somebody stops them.
