Republicans Now Debating Whether Liz Cheney Is a Victim of Cancel CultureIn yet another sign that cancel culture isn’t real, even Republicans can’t agree on what constitutes “cancel culture.” This episode of intra-party confusion comes courtesy of Republican leaders’ push to oust Representative Liz Cheney from her leadership post in the House. On Monday, Senator Joni Ernst waded in, arguing that Cheney was being silenced and a victim of cancel culture within her own party. “I feel it’s OK to go ahead and express what you feel is right to express and, you know, cancel culture is cancel culture no matter how you look at it. Unfortunately, I think there are those that are trying to silence others in the party,” Ernst told reporters. She added that “we shouldn’t be trying to cancel voices.” Imagine what it's going to be like trying to explain these times to our grandkids. Maybe, possibly, Joni Ernst is right for once.

'I will not sit back and watch in silence while others lead our party down a path that abandons the rule of law and joins the former president’s crusade to undermine our democracy,” Cheney said. Oh please, go away already. Stop trying to make Loony Liz happen. She’s boring. Cheney is the only impressive aspect in the GOP in the last 50 yrs. And that's pathetic.
