In this age of rampant income inequality, it’s getting tougher and tougher for bros to prance around like overentitled dicks.
“My point is, people weren’t all that funny when they could say whatever they wanted to say. At the end of the day, there’s no cancel culture.”
– Katt Williams
I love Katt Williams. His recent interview on the Joe Budden Podcast was brilliant.
When the phrase “cancel culture” flared up like a rash among the MAGA-hatted folk, I took it as a sign that the Right wing is losing.
A new term needed to catch on with the Fox News-folk because older terms like “political correctness” had lost their power.
Donald Trump revived the term “political correctness” for his presidential run and milked it for all it was worth, but eventually white supremacist billionaire-worshippers needed a new slur to replace this tired one.
For a time, “SJW” showed promise, but the concept fizzled out before it could de-rail the social justice warriors.
I’m old enough to remember when the Rush Limbaugh types started whining that this evil energy called “political correctness” loomed over the horizon, threatening their blonde jokes and the clueless diatribes about race passed down from their grandfathers.
The closet supremacists shouted the phrase so much that it lost its power. The same thing will happen to “cancel culture.”
Don’t get me wrong: they’ll counter with a new angle.
But we’re winning.
Sadly, the fascists have now moved to more overt tactics, like rigging elections. But, still, we’re winning.
I’ll end with this Katt Williams bit, “American Zoo.“

I also write fiction. I have two dark comedies available, Fearkiller (Volume 1) and Notes from Trillionaire Island: Fearkiller (Volume 2), as well as Revolutionizer Alpha, the first book in a sci-fi series. I also wrote a story about God. It was weird, but then I decided to make the story and its sequel free. And all of the sudden, it didn’t seem as weird. Writing about God is much less weird when you write about God without charging money for it.
