So "Paw Patrol" is currently trending on Twitter because during a White House briefing, they said that it had been cancelled by "cancel culture" (the subject was about how even Trump was disgusted by cancel culture). Everyone is up in arms because this is incorrect, the show was not cancelled.

However, as much as I hate to defend Trump and his moronic staff, back towards when all of this bullshit started and they were trying to get anything with cops in it cancelled, there were people crying for the cancellation of the show because of Chase, who is a cop. So for this one time, I think people need to step back and realize that there is a plausible reason for the confusion.

But I will tell ya'll one thing. I don't like many children shows, I think most are really irritating/stupid, but Paw Patrol is actually pretty cute and is something I'd be 100% okay with watching with my kids if I had any. If they get that show cancelled, it'll be time to cancel all of them... permanently.

I think cancel culture goes too far more often than not in cases where I've seen it happen. For example when people dig up stuff from over a decade ago and use that to cancel someone; if that person is no longer like that then why bring it up?

I think cancel culture in general is stupid. Like how many times have people cried to cancel a restaurant because someone in the company supports something they don't? Like who the actual fuck cares? If it's a restaurant I like and I like the food, that's the end of it. I don't care if some random store manager at one of the restaurants out of thousands supports Trump. Big whoop.

Hell, even if it's the CEO who supports something I don't, I don't care. When it comes to a restaurant, all that matters to me is the product I am paying for. Same for any general stores. As long as I'm getting what I want from them, they can have my money regardless of anything else.

For me to "cancel" a restaurant, it'd have to be something extremely grievous... like if a burger joint got exposed for using dog/cat meat.

I don't even know what companies in England supported what particular "controversial" stuff. It just never really seemed to come up. Here in the US it seems to be a thing that everything has to always be about politics no matter what it is. Even wearing masks is political, and it's stupid.

That's because over the course of the last 10-15 years, everything has become about political correctness and bullshit like that. You have to conform to the mob or else you need to be "cancelled."

Between the political correctness, the social media outrage movements and the cancel culture, I don't know what's been ruining this country the most.

I'd argue you could put all of what you said under a single blanket classification of being the fault of all the people who instigate that sort of stuff. If there weren't people who had pushed it at some stage and made it work, it wouldn't be a thing that has the traction it does. I wouldn't be surprised to find that someone who backs one of those things 100% of the time also backs at least one of the others too. I'd also say it comes down to people don't want to just discuss things with civility. It has to be "I'm right, end of", and any attempt made by someone to generate a discussion over it just gets blasted with ad hominem remarks. The fact that it has to be stated not to mention politics at a Thanksgiving meal shows that. I never in England heard people saying "Don't bring up politics over Christmas dinner" and any time politics did come up (mostly Brexit for the ones I experienced) people on either side could actually talk about it. America seems to have a stigma attached to anything that has defined sides as being a recipe for disaster if you dare discuss it with someone who has an opposing viewpoint to your own.

That's because over the course of time, politics is this country has devolved into simply being Replicans vs Democrats, with no middle ground at all. Both of these political groups have the "you're either with us or against us" mentality. Once upon a time, it was about working together towards the betterment of this country, then it become a competition and that's how you see people like Donald Trump get elected. Because it's no longer "what's best for this country and its people?", but instead "What's the best way to make the Republicans/Democrats look bad?"

Of course this naturally seeped down into the support bases for both political groups, and now you can't discuss political views with someone on the other side without it becoming "NO! YOU'RE WRONG AND I'M RIGHT! LALALALALALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU!"

I don't align myself with either party, so I just sit in the middle watching these people argue like children constantly, just shaking my head the entire time.

I've never aligned with any political party in my life, since I tend to vote for who has the policies I want and if they have the track record to back it up. Although you have to go out of your way to encounter politics in England since we don't have campaign ads and donations and stuff like America does.

Oh yeah, it's all about the money in America, of course. Our politicians stopped caring about actually helping us a long, long time ago. All they care about now is lining their own pockets with money from corporations, which they gain by passing huge tax breaks and shit for said corporations.

We need to go back to how Congress and shit was originally -- volunteer work, not something you got paid doing. That'll weed out the money-hungry asshats real quick.
