Over the last couple of years, Conservatives have been increasingly obsessed with the topic of cancel culture. And they get especially angry when the person getting cancelled is white and Republican.
For the most part, these people are just facing the consequences for their bad behavior. Still, Fox News and GOP lawmakers have figured out talking about it is a good way to get their supporters riled up.
And Dan Crenshaw has now figured out a make money off of that anger. The Texas congressman has written a children’s book about cancel culture called Fame, Shame and the Raft of Blame.
The books summary reads:
Deep in the ocean, Starlotte City blooms beneath a dome made of glowing seaweed. The city’s beauty and strength are mirrored by its vibrant culture, and Eva wants nothing more than to take her place on Starlotte City’s stage. But, when one star performer suggests that they ought to cancel some animals for insensitive comments, the true strength of the seaweed city and its citizens is put to the test. Will Eva have the courage to stand up to the crowds, or will she allow fear to silence herself and others?
And according to a warning on the publisher’s website, “While today’s culture presents canceling others’ opinions as the solution to their problems, they don’t realize that a culture of canceling eventually cancels culture entirely.”
