Cancellations of people — involving actual violent threats — really are happening, it’s just that the victims are different than those you’re more likely to read about on anti-PC SubStack:
Shaye Moss’s life forever changed on Dec. 10, 2020, when Rudy Giuliani, then President Donald Trump’s top campaign lawyer, publicly claimed that she and her mother, a fellow poll worker in Fulton County, Ga., had rigged the outcome in her state.
Moss’s supervisor suggested that day that she check her social media accounts to see if she had received any threats, as others in the office had. She was stunned by what she saw when she pulled up her Facebook Messenger account.
“It was just a lot of horrible things there,” Moss said at a hearing Tuesday before the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol. Many of the messages were racist and “hateful,” said Moss, who is Black. “A lot of threats wishing death upon me, telling me I’ll be in jail with my mother and saying things like, ‘Be glad it’s 2020 and not 1920.’ ”
At least it’s not as if this could create negative incentives going forward either!
Always remember the quote that best sums up Republican elites in the Trump era:
“What is the downside for humoring him for this little bit of time? No one seriously thinks the results will change.”
