[Ed. – To hear the Left tell it, they are champions of ‘peaceful’ dissent.]
The combination of “cancel culture,” “identity politics,” “intersectionality” and other woke movements have endangered the freedom of speech, the right to dissent and the due process of law. This combination of “progressive” ends with regressive means has produced an intolerance among many millennials for traditional processes and procedures that lie at the heart of our constitution.
Many woke progressives think they know The Truth — with capital letters. And when you are sure of The Truth, dissent and due process become unnecessary barriers to achieving it. They know that if a white policeman kills a Black suspect, the policeman is guilty. So why do we need a “fair” trial that may result in the “wrong” verdict? They know that if a woman accuses a man of sexual misconduct, the man is guilty because “women tell the truth.”
