Republicans are currently obsessed with the topic of cancel culture. For most of them, this means that people they like won’t face the consequences for their words or actions.
Don Huffines is a former Texas state senator is seeking to unseat Governor Greg Abbott in the Republican primary. It was recently revealed that one of his staffers is a white nationalist. Huffines won’t fire him, though, because the candidate says that would mean participating in cancel culture.
In a 2020 YouTube appearance Jake Lloyd Colglazier said he wanted to, “restore historical American culture” by “maintaining a supermajority of the original stock of the United States, and maintaining a homogeneity.”
When asked about the comments, Huffines replied, “If I were to go through the social media history of any young Texan I would find something I disagree with. My campaign will not participate in cancel culture.”
