The Cancel Culture Will Continue Until the Morale Improves

I was never really into the whole politics thing – I just wanted to chill, enjoy nerdy shit, game, watch movies, chill with my girlfriend, and have a good time. I don’t even care about wealth or fame. I want to pay my bills, make ends meet, live my life, and enjoy the good things.

But, like many of you, while minding my own business I was dragged into this bullshit by the Culture War and the Oppressive Totalitarian Left that doesn’t just want equality but supremacy over those who really just wanted to chill, enjoy shit, and be left alone. But the infection just keeps spreading – whether it’s to nerd culture, movies, comic books, sports, video games, social media, and more, the virus just keeps consuming, and consuming, and consuming.

We didn’t have a choice. We didn’t choose this war, we got drafted every time we turned on a television and some commercial was lecturing us on “privilege.” We got conscripted when they took Star Wars, Ghostbusters, Marvel comics and so many others and filled it with an agenda to normalize things we were practically indifferent to.


…Shut up already. You’re “seen” but can you just kind of… fuck off?


No, we were never racist, and never “-phobic,” we were just indifferent. We just wanted to be left alone, and now we’re here because they would not LEAVE us alone.

The only way to fight back against the Woke Mob is to either rage just as hard, because the equal and opposite reaction is necessary for the sake of balance, or to say, “fuck it, you can have Star Wars, you can have Marvel and DC comics,” and to create something new. Here’s the problem: Not all of us are DailyWire, or Steven Crowder, or Tim Pool, or the Quartering. Sometimes, it’s simply a matter of the fact that some of us just don’t have that level of time on our hands because we have day jobs. Established types like the previously mentioned names make their bread and butter online, and thus it becomes more of an incentive for them to work on fighting the good fight.

While the rest of us want to, time is just not on our side. I’m 40. I work. I have people that constantly need and depend on me. What little time is left, sometimes there isn’t enough time unless I want to forsake sleep or do crack to be geeked all the time like Hunter Biden (which I clearly don’t want to do). My co-host just had his first child, aside from his own full-time job.

Again, I reiterate: Time is not on our side.

And that’s why Culture War is a hard one to fight. Our side understands the importance of personal responsibilities and personal obligations. Simply put, I’m too busy to produce content day after day after day – some weeks Jon and I are putting the weekly podcast together by the skin of our teeth. This is by no means a complaint about any of it. I like my life; I’m relatively sure Jon likes his (as much as someone living in New York can, anyway – what a shithole the north is) – to have people who depend on you on both a personal and professional level is a fulfilment in life that I’d never trade, even if admittedly some days I’m exhausted of being the guy in charge that is, in effect, life. My father tried to warn me that “at some point you’re going to be busy – too busy, and you’re going to understand that that’s what being a man is.”

There are a lot of weaker people now, that are afraid of “being a man,” that’s why you have people denying their biological gender. That’s why you have these soy-boys who hate gender roles so much. As a man you’re looked at to be a provider, a leader, and to fulfill a certain role. There’s nothing wrong with that. There’s nothing shameful about it. And while at times it’s difficult as hell, BECAUSE, YES, being a man means you’re overworked and underappreciated (more so in this society that tries to say there’s something wrong with that), it is what it is.

That’s not to say women don’t have any obligations or responsibilities either and if you’re a woman and you’re actually reading Cancel This Podcast chances are you have a million things you’re usually doing a day, also. And therein lies my point. The people who this lifestyle and mindset appeal to are often far, far too busy to write articles or post blogs or make videos. But then, if we don’t do it, who is going to? If our opinions are our own, nobody is going to throw those thoughts and ideas out into the world for us – we must make time, difficult as that may be. We don’t have to devote hour after hour to it, especially when we’re pressed for time, the most valuable of commodities, but we should take the time when we can, when it doesn’t overwhelm us, when we do have that creative itch, or that thought that’s raging to be let out onto a video or onto the Word Document – if we don’t use them, we lose them.

If we don’t use our freedom, we LOSE our freedom and that is exactly what is happening. We also need to be each other’s support systems. No, we don’t need groups to “hug it out,” or anything, but we need to work together sometimes, or not be afraid to push our products and say “hey, I made this. Support my shit.” We need to not be afraid TO support each other’s shit. We need to not be afraid to contribute to a cause of saying “you know what? Fuck cancel culture.”

It doesn’t take all the effort in the world, but it does take a little effort when you can. And that’s why I do this.

We’ve all seen this meme of the farmer: It ain’t much but it’s honest work. Am I making 4 videos a day? Absolutely not – ain’t nobody got time for that! Am I writing every day? Also, no. In fact, it’s been sporadic at best the past several weeks. But I do what I can when I can, and we always do Cancel This Podcast every week. Yeah, a lot of the time in my spare time I just want to chill with my girlfriend or wind down and bury my head into World of Warcraft – but one day they’re going to come for World of Warcraft (Activision-Blizzard has made some bad decisions already). One day if my girlfriend and I have a kid they’re going to try to indoctrinate that child – MY child into the Leftist Machine. So… I can’t just bury my head in the sand and say “it’s someone else’s problem” because it’s everyone’s problem. If you believe in freedom to express yourself, then FUCKING EXPRESS YOURSELF and stop being scared to do that. The Woke Mob only has the power you allow them to have over you.

So here I am. I write. I create. It’s not about being popular or famous or infamous – it’s about expressing and being true to myself and my values and my thoughts. And I will continue to do that. Hopefully, those of you out there will do the same. Hopefully even if you don’t, you’ll help and support Cancel This Podcast – even financially a little bit since these projects aren’t cheap (we do have a donation page).

All in all though – the only way we get on the other end of this censorious bullshit is if we put our foot down and be defiant through our creative outlets and if they close some of those doors, we open new ones, or kick them the fuck down. But you don’t get a damn thing if you choose to just AFK your way through life. That’s how we ended up with Joe Biden. How’s that working out for you?
