Yup. Just a take a look at the polls. Horribly wrong. Why? They overestimated Biden’s vote with people that hold a bachelor’s degree by a mile. People either outright lied to pollsters, or hung up after learning they were talking to a pollster.
Okay. So you're saying people didn't want to tell anyone they were voting for Trump. And this makes sense if what you are saying about Cancel Culture and being a Trump supporter is true. On a college campus this makes even more sense. But in general? The Trump supporters in Ohio were loud, arrogant and defiant. And it can't be Cancel Culture in general, because Trump is the King of Cancel Culture.
What I mean is that Cancel Culture publicly shames people for not conforming to whatever seems to be culturally relevant at the time. Trump does this to everyone and every group that goes against ANYTHING he says or does. He doesn't just stop there either. He calls them names. He gets hundreds of people to CHANT and humiliate them publicly. He fires them for simply doing their job, if in the course of doing that job, they might disagree with him (such as with the path of a hurricane or the existence of a virus).
I'm beginning to think that things are changing so fast now (i.e. the hi-tech or the LGBTQ community) that people just want to slam on the breaks sometimes. And I get that. But why Trump? Are they really that afraid of the extreme liberals? I see them as harmless I guess. But I suppose to their victims they are most certainly not! I've just seen so many of Trump's victims. And this week alone, he has fired so many more, putting in more Trump loyalists despite their expertise or viability.
I think half the nation voted for Trump because he was emotionally interesting to watch, spoke simply and gave them permission to engage their pettiest instincts. I think they were sick of politicians and rightly so. But Trump has all the elements of a good soap opera, not a good president ---- a lack of MORAL INTEGRITY and a LOT OF CONFLICT. But a president isn't supposed to get down in the mud with the people. He is supposed to be the best of us, or at least attempt to be a shining example. He called people names; so Americans started doing even more of it. He wanted to build a wall; so Americans starting building hundreds of their own. We are now more divided than ever.
I don't want that.
So, I am glad there is a letter going around condemning Cancel Culture with so many famous names on it. But Trump, the President of the United States puts down more people and organizations in 1 day of tweets than most of us could muster in a year. Knowing this, how could Cancel Culture then be the reason that people voted for Trump? Trump seems to embody the worst of what Cancel Culture is.
