Republican Jim Jordan of Ohio is under the scrutiny of Twitter users after claiming that the biggest threat the United States is facing today is “cancel culture”. After the former president Donald Trump was acquitted at his second impeachment trial for allegedly inciting the riots at the US Capitol, Jordon told Fox News that cancel culture “is the number one issue for the country to address today”. While discussing the negative public relation to Trump’s defense lawyer, Michael van der Veen, who faced backlash with the word “TRAITOR”, Jordon talked about the cancel culture and how it is crucial to stand up against it for the First Amendment.

“If we don't push back on this and stop it and stand up ... for the constitution, the First Amendment, it will only get worse,” Jordan added. Jordan added that if “cancel culture” is not stopped, then as per him, “every American is at risk.”

Another wrote: "I'm a regular working guy. I've spent more time driving a forklift than wearing a suit. I've been laid off + skipped medications to make ends meet. I worry about the bills. I know what working families like mine are up against. I'm running to #CancelJimJordan @ the ballot box." Another shared similar emotions, "Since Jim Jordan decided Ohio taxpayers now pay him to whine about “cancel culture,” I think it would be so much fun if this hashtag became a thing: #CancelJimJordan".

 



 



 

 

 



 

 

 



 

 

What is ‘cancel culture’?

As the world entered a more digital age, social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook became a hub for discussing several topics. The discussions even led to the rise of personal opinions against sensitive issues. When several people decide to cancel something collectively, then it is deemed as a cancel culture. The most visible examples of cancel culture occur when a public figure says or writes something in an act that is deemed offensive by the public.

So, when a large number of people on Twitter or Facebook collectively object to any action by a public figure, it leads to calls to ‘cancel’ the person. This canceling usually occurs by boycotting anything relevant to the person to impact the person’s job or reputation.

Jordan further told Fox News: “The San Francisco Board of Education said that Dianne Feinstein Elementary School will no longer be named after Senator Feinstein, a liberal icon — not good enough because 37 years ago she said something that cancel culture doesn’t like. That's how ridiculous, that's how dangerous this is".
