Verizon is getting in on the act and going all out against Capitalism. Verizon, who charges $1000 for a phone and then makes $100/mo off of you after that. I'd almost be for socialism, just out of spite, if it meant nationalizing Verizon and making their phones and services free. Asswipes.

LE agencies, most of which use and issue Verizon phones should drop them.

Varizon is run by idiots.  Verizon exists because of capitalism.  They don't know this?

Good grief!

Big businesses hate free market capitalism... they love crony capitalism, because it lets them use government regulators to screw their small competitors.

Recall how 40% of all small business went out of business in the year with government enforced covid lockdowns?

That's the kind of "capitalism" big business loves.

Apparently the latest cancel outrage is targeting Terry Bradshaw.

Erin Andrews wore a western-themed outfit to do an interview, which tied in with the location of the interview and the person being interviewed.

Bradshaw told Andrews "“You got your cowboy boots on and your shirt, you’re looking good, I enjoyed that interview,”"

That's all it took to set off the cancelers.

At first I though the outrage was going to be due to the negative image of cowboys among SJWs but nope

None of that mattered to the Twitter mob, which began accusing Bradshaw of effectively sexually harassing Andrews. One website even called Bradshaw a “creep.” Most of the people probably did not even know that Andrews had dressed up for the horse interview with White and were just seeking Twitter cred by piling on Bradshaw.

If there were just a bit of sanity out there, this would be in the Jump the Shark category.  However, I think the cancelers aren't done yet.  Hopefully, people either ignore them or point and laugh.

Someone should mention to those idiots that if it were not for a fair number of the disgusting, racist white people there would not be a country for those idiots to live and be able to spew their venom.

This is great. "The Handmaids Tale" has been a go-to attack theme for the SJWs. Now the author has said something wrong, and that's it for her.

Pro Dave Chappelle protester at anti-Chappelle protest. He has a sign on a pole. They destroy his sign, then start screaming that he has a weapon (the pole that the sign used to be on).

– A prison inmate
– A mentally ill person in a psychiatric facility
– A transgender person (there’s a difference between dressing as a trans person as a joke/mockery and dressing in drag. Many folks use Halloween as a safe opportunity to play with their own gender and drag has a long history of being connected to Halloween)

– Fat suits
– Costumes that make fun of sexual and gendered violence (e.g. “flasher”)
– Costumes that degrade or dehumanize sex workers, dancers, etc.

What about a Mongol warrior?

A Masai spear-man?

A conquistador?

How about as a member of the South African Defense Forces or the Rhodesian Security Forces?

"– Costumes that degrade or dehumanize sex workers, dancers, etc."

I don't understand this one. Sex workers, dancers, etc would presumably try looking sexually desirable, that is their job after all. I'm not sure what the authors are referring to as dehumanizing.
