Normally I’d Say Something Snarky About the Remaining 36%

Poll: 64% Of Americans See ‘Cancel Culture’ As A Threat To Their Freedom | The Daily Wire

But in this case, I find the phrasing significant. I bet at least half of that 36% don’t fell that Cancel Culture is a threat to their freedom. It may be a threat to your freedom, but that doesn’t bother them.

The information comes from a Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey released exclusively to The Hill showing that 64% of the respondents to the survey stated “that there is ‘a growing cancel culture’ that is a threat to their freedom, while 36 percent said they did not view it as a threat to their freedom.”

This next bit is true.

Mark Penn, the director of the Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey released by The Hill, said, “It is a chilling finding that most people in the country now are afraid they would be fired if they expressed their real views on social media … The public generally gives negative ratings to social media companies and sees the movement as more about censorship rather than trying to correct wrongs. It is growing as a national issue.”

Back when I used social media, I was very expressive on Twitter, but much more reserved on Facebook. I was self-censoring myself. That’s one of the reasons I went back to blogging.
