Angry Claude off AFTV is a faller.

Had never heard of that particular racial slur before now.

Mount Rushmore

Don’t you mean Count Rushmore?

Are the protestors hacking away at the presidents with chisels or what?

The guy who painted the faces on the mountain?

Why was Mount Rushmere not an issue for left wing socialist Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton or in 2008 the African-American presendential hopeful Barack Obama?

Surprised they never went after Gervais and The Office, there was some close to the bone gags in that one on a variety of areas. Maybe the style of the show prevents it from getting too much heat?

Sounds like an ageist/culchie slur to me.

Of that long list, only the top 3 existed as public figures or phenomena in the past 2-3 years since cancel culture became a big issue. The rest is post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy.

if Twitter disappeared somehow so would cancel culture. People like Gervais don’t care what is said about them on Twitter .

All are victims of so called "cancel culture".

So called "cancel culture" either includes the above, or it is not actually a thing.

Online posters who use latin and the word "fallacy" to are generally dunderheads.

Especially people who are pushing a concept designed to protect establishment power but who then throw their toys out of the pram when they're presented with obvious examples of the concept they're trying to push - examples they don't like.
