I want you all to remember and be aware, for once, that the kind of thinking, mindset and ideology that makes people say absurd, unhinged, nonsensical and unjustified things like this is the exact same, or rather, the one, and with the same competency, that pushes for ALL "progressive" (or rather leftist, that many, amusingly enough, took as "edgy", revolutionary, rebellious, and avant-garde, as was intended by the manipulators) stuff. And in "stuff" are included laws that affects everyone.
You think this is absurd? Well this may be the line for you, but this isn't, relatively, much more absurd than most other things those say, push and do and I dare to say all of you definitely believed and still believe.
The left is proof that mental illness is contagious.
Yes, we know. When the right cancels something, it is not cancel culture. https://prospect.org/politics/altercation-when-the-right-cancels-it-it-aint-cancel-culture/ :rolleyes:

I'm just more surprised they didn't pick this up internally before they started rolling it out. I'll admit when I first saw it it struck me as looking like Hitler, and it sounds like they've received a lot of similar feedback, so why didn't they pick that up internally? Just seems like an easily preventable PR own goal.

People are making a big deal out of it. As in people up in arms over it. Amazon makes new logo, some people see resemblance to a bad man, Amazon goes "whoops, lets just change it and rid us of the similarity once and for all" with little effort required. Like, what is the problem? Is like one minor change to an app logo so triggering? Bunch of snowflakes, amirite?

Meh, there's plenty of nuts on both ends of the political spectrum.

Half the Snowflakes like to get their panties in a bunch about imagery like the old logo. And the other half of the Snowflakes like to get their panties in a bunch about the reasons for changing that imagery.

It's been a snowy few decades recently.

Oh yeah, if you aren't a leftist cultist then you are a right winger...
Prejudice much?
And guess what?
I'm not right winger!

I remember when people in forums were aware of fallacies and didn't tried them this openly.

Which inludes the "When the right cancels something, it is not cancel culture.". In that case the argument is for "both". But it is the left who is currently cancelling. At all speed. All happy and as we can see from the likes of you, putting poor excuses.

Accept it: is the left now the book burning, bigoted, racists, authoritarian, pro corporations and friends and defenders of all kinds of anti "human rights" elements and common extreme inmoral and criminal acts. Among others.

Seriously! That's how you feel about yourself? OK, I'll admit this is trolling. I didn't really mean it. But the thought did cross my mind.
Ok, honestly I do think of that a lot. It just seems to be how the topics and posts go but I absolutely have just as much distaste for the far ends of both parties. I don't much care for Fox News or CNN. I'm more of an MSNBC guy. They are my side of the fence but a sucker for no one. The way they are just hammering Cuomo right now is the latest example.

Give ya a few hints. 7 Republican Senators doing their job. Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter. Now, put on your thinking cap.

Cancel culture used to go by another name. "Pointing a finger and judging Others".
And nobody is better at it than conservative Republicans.
Wait, all copies of LOTR and Harry Potter have been changed?

Wait. Just because Republican cancel culture didn't work doesn't mean they didn't try. See if cancel culture works then it works because a whoooole lot of people wanted it to.

So let's move on. Would you now like to talk about conservative republican cancel culture on the Dixie Chicks? From there we can go on to Steve Earle.

I'm not familiar with the Dixie Chicks thing. If I'm reading you correctly. Trying to prevent a culture from starting is not Cancel Culture. It is attempting to preserve a culture.

Probably like 15 years ago now. The Dixie Chicks were huge in Country music but the lead singer said something bad about GW Bush and that she was sorry he came from her state. Canceled.

I found this for those not familiar:
