Cancel Culture- A Breeding Ground for Cyber-Bullies Who Are Twice as Dangerous (Part 2)

 (…Continued from Part 1)

For the life of me, I cannot understand why these things have been allowed to go on. Why doesn’t the law do anything about terroristic threats like the ones above? Before the internet, if you stalked someone and threatened to kill them, you were arrested. You were charged with Terroristic Threatening, Stalking, or both and you went to jail. And back then, if you slandered or libeled someone without any evidence to back up your claims, you got your pants sued off.

You can’t tell me that this can’t still be done with the robust cyber-security agencies that we have today. You cannot tell me that the law hasn’t caught up with technology and can’t find the criminals who are destroying the lives of innocent people. How hard is it to ping an IP address? Even if the cyber-bully is hiding behind a proxy and cloaking their IP address, we have cyber-security teams who could still find ways to track them.

And what really blows my mind is that you don’t see many pedophiles and child sex traffickers being cancelled, which is pretty odd (and suspicious) to me. But I’ll save that for a future post.

Most of the time, cancel culture isn’t even justifiable. Cyber-bullies in the age of cancel culture attack people and publicly shame them for the most absurd, ludicrous, and ridiculous reasons! All it takes is for a person to say something, anything that someone else takes the wrong way, or for the wrong person to see an old high school photograph of a guy in drag at a Halloween party back in the 70’s. And back then, a lot of men dressed as women on Halloween, and no one thought anything of it. It was just a Halloween costume and some crazy kids out having fun. Yet the guy gets cancelled over it 40 years later. It’s ridiculous!

Alas, despite the deaths from suicide and murder that have arisen from cancel culture, people still allow this scourge on humanity to persist. And it’s so widespread that it will come knocking on your door sooner or later. Being a blogger, I already know that it could show up on my doorstep too! Cancel culture doesn’t discriminate, anyone can be cyber-bullied and cancelled. It can happen to you, me, anyone!

In fact, three years ago, I got attacked online for “walking on the wrong side of the street” during my power walk. Walking with traffic has always seemed like a death wish to me. I’ve always walked toward traffic just in case there’s a distracted driver on the road. And if a driver is going to veer off the road toward me, I want to see them coming so I can get the hell out of the way and avoid being hit.

Granted, I never got cancelled for it, but I was told that I was the most despicable person in the world- for walking toward traffic instead of with it. Sadly, I’ve heard of many other people getting cancelled over silly stuff like that.

People go so far as to dig up their target’s personal lives and find out where they work, where their spouses or their mothers work and get them all fired from their jobs. And for what? Some stupid Halloween costume they wore forty plus years ago? Over something stupid they may have said while drunk at a kegger thirty years ago? Or because they worked at a company or for a person that is now on the cancel culture hit list twenty year ago, ten years ago, or five years ago?

It seems that cancel culture cyber-bullies must search, and search far and wide for something- anything- even the tiniest little social infraction to get the pleasure of cancelling someone. And these people will find one even if they must invent it.

It only shows that the cyber-bullies who do these kinds of things have entirely too much time on their hands. Cancel culture does nothing to make people better or teach them a lesson. What it does is make cyber-bullies that much more brazen and much more dangerous.

It gives these bullies exactly the power they need to completely obliterate the lives of innocent people who are just trying to make a living, take care of their families, and live in peace- these targets are mostly people who mind their own business, go on about their lives, and just want to be left alone.

You may disagree with me and you have every right to your opinion. But I think cancel culture should be against the law. I think it should be a Class A Felony at that! No one should be given carte blanche to screw around with someone else’s livelihood and personal life just because they don’t like them- or don’t like what they say, how they do things, the way they live their lives, or who they associate with. If that person isn’t committing a crime, their livelihoods and personal life should be off limits!

Just by the very nature of cancel culture, the cyber-bullies that go to these lengths to destroy their targets may say that they want to “teach them a thing or two” but, they’re not trying to teach any lessons here. They’re only using that as an excuse to deliberately cause trouble and ruin someone’s life strictly for the satisfaction of having the power to do so.

This is how they get the rush of power they so crave because they certainly can’t get it any other way. Understand that these people are life-losers. They’re zeroes trying to look like heroes. And the sad part of it is, they know they’re zeroes. They can’t get self-actualization, power, respect, nor notoriety through creativity and hard work because they’ve got no skills nor redeemable qualities to survive on merit.

Engaging in cyber-bullying and cancel culture is the only way these people can get those things and they will attain them even if it means destroying many lives and breaking laws to do so. And the power that cancel culture gives these people is dangerous and terrifying to those of us law-abiding citizens who only want to work, come home, enjoy the love of our families, and live our lives in peace.

With knowledge comes empowerment!

    Totally agree with this post! My bullies are attempting to “cancel” me out by posting in a domain in my name, by posting malicious gossip and personal comments on how I live. They pretend to know me.

    “They’re only using that as an excuse to deliberately cause trouble and ruin someone’s life strictly for the satisfaction of having the power to do so.” One thing I have come to see about Bullies, they think they have the power to do so, and might even get away with it for a time, but the truth comes out eventually. They can only repeat their lies only so often before they get “cancelled” themselves!

    I never heard that term before today but it makes sense. I felt like sometimes I was being erased as a individual, not allowed to have my own thoughts and feelings, let alone express them!

    I am happy to say, I am healing!

    Thank for the posts Cherie and teaching me something new!

  2. I just find attacking someone online as cowardly as it gets. If you wouldn’t say it directly to someone’s face it shouldn’t be said.

  3. You really do share some critical facts on your blog, Cherie. Everyone should be aware of this sick and perverted way of behaving. Cyberbullies are just cowards at heart. When it comes down to it, it’s all about weak and nasty people finding a way of getting power over others. Power in the wrong hands is extremely dangerous. I’ve been fortunate enough to never have been a victim of this. Since I’ve been reading your posts, I’ve learned so many things that I didn’t know before, and I am thankful for that. Thanks for bringing this to light for those of us, like myself, who weren’t aware of it. You do a great job, Cherie. It’s appreciated.

    • Thank you so much, Ellie! 💖🌺🌷🦋 And you said it best when you made this statement: “When it comes down to it, it’s all about weak and nasty people finding a way of getting power over others.” How right you are! 💯💯💯

  4. Cherie, to the person who had a go at you for walking down the wrong side of the street, “Get a life!” You’re spot on here, cancel culture persons must have totally miserable existences. On the other hand, I did dress up as Raquel Welch’s character in the film “Kansas City Bomber” when I was eleven. I wonder if I’m going to get cancelled for it. Not really going to lose any sleep over it. Another great post.

  5. Ummm you’re supposed to walk against traffic! What a ding dong!! Cancel culture showed up big in Canada when people who donated money to feed the striking truckers who got their bank accounts frozen. That’s real. A lot bigger than hurt feelings. It needs to stop. It is bullying.

    • I read about what those morons did to the truckers in Canada and to those who supported them out of the goodness of their hearts, Steven. And it made my blood boil! 😡🤬😡🤬 Despicable! Cancel culture is the worst kind of evil! And you’re right, it’s bullying at its lowest!

      Go truckers!
      Truck Trudeau! 🖕

  6. “You can’t tell me that this can’t still be done with the robust cyber-security agencies that we have today. You cannot tell me that the law hasn’t caught up with technology and can’t find the criminals who are destroying the lives of innocent people.”

    They can, they just don’t want to because the innocent people being destroyed by cancel culture are the ones that the elites running things want silenced. At least that’s how it is here.

    Also, is walking with traffic no longer the law?

    • “They can, they just don’t want to because the innocent people being destroyed by cancel culture are the ones that the elites running things want silenced.” You’re absolutely right, Greg! That’s exactly what it is! 💯💯💯 Now we know why cyber-bullying has been allowed to go on for the last 20 years! This gives me an idea for a new post!

      It may be the law in some places but it’s a law that makes no sense! I’ll walk against traffic because if a distracted driver loses control and comes barreling toward me, I want to see it in time to dive out of the way.
