    Boomers gave you everything you have. Be respectful of your betters.

    You know nothing of those born in the late 40s. Consider yourself ignorant as charged.

    Me thinks there is a notable difference between someone like
    JK Rowling creating stories and characters for entertainment
    and Rush Limbaugh/Tucker Carlson/Hannity creating stories and characters for entertainment.
    I don't see any positive aspect for NOT canceling the later three.
    Do you?

    Some of the signatories of the letter immediately began to cancel each other once they found out their signatures were on a letter alongside people they despised (notably JK Rowling). Far-Left Libs eating the classic Libs. Who shall live and who shall be cancelled? We shall see!

    Boomers have destroyed everything in this nation and then left the generation they were to raise unprepared for the future.

    A complete failure on many fronts

    Yep. You don't have to listen to them if you don't want but you have no right whatever to silence them.

    No wish to silence them....but there should be a warning attached to their fables...
    maybe something like....Caution! This content is for entertainment purposes only! Believe it your own risk!

    Only if you're willing to post the same warning in front of Vox, BuzzFeed, Mediamatters, and axios.

    Destroyed what? And why blame the parents for the failings of the children? Why does the left blame everyone but themselves for their obvious and many shortcomings?

    Hard to imagine that mob mentality has taken over so many institutes of higher learning.

    They've gone after Steven Pinker (one of the signatories), not trying to get him fired from Harvard, but trying to have him expelled as a member of the American Linguists Society.

    The goal of slandering these esteemed professors is to produce a next-generation of academics who are trained (through fear and intimidation) not to express dissent against those who speak loudest. After some successes on university campuses, they are testing that goal for all of society.

    At least Pinker is keeping some sense of humor.

    I"m guessing there are more folks out there like myself who don't believe "Alternative Facts" are the same as Truth.
    If any media says something that evidence can prove as true, how can there be a valid argument against it?
    Yet Trump can lie all day long if he chooses to, and Fox news (and you) will cheer him on.

    A disagreement as to what the facts are is not a lie, and ninety percent if what the media calls lies are actually disagreements about the facts.

    I repeat..."Yet Trump can lie all day long if he chooses to, and Fox news (and you) will cheer him on."
    Are you saying that...in your opinion...Trump has never lied to us..."it was just a disagreement as to what the facts are"?

    "Everything" is a big word, driving along the city streets watching activity pick back up despite the Kung Flu shutdowns. "Destroyed" is what Dems do to the cities they've held since the 1960s and 70s (in other words, most cities). "Unprepared for the future" was supposed to be the teacher's jobs as much as the parents. Who failed whom here? Bad parents or uncaring educrats?

    No simply disagreeing with an opinion is not lying...but if there exist facts that prove your opinion to be mistaken
    and you continue to spread such nonsense (like Trump does) that is lying.
