Cancel tradition. Cancel publication.
And within the newest episode of cancelling tradition by cancelling publication now we have the spectacle of Simon & Schuster staff petitioning for the corporate they work for to cease publication of Mike Pence’s memoir which is due out on e book cabinets in 2023. This newest iteration of the more and more authoritarian mentality of the left was captured on Wednesday within the New York Submit, “Simon & Schuster will publish Mike Pence’s memoir regardless of employees objections.”
Simon & Schuster says it is going to publish former Vice President Mike Pence’s memoir regardless of objections from staff who signed petitions demanding the corporate not signal e book offers with former Trump administration officers, in accordance with a report.
CEO Jonathan Karp despatched a reply to worker calls for: “As a writer on this polarized period, now we have skilled outrage from either side of the political divide and from completely different constituencies and teams. However we come to work every day to publish, not cancel, which is probably the most excessive determination a writer could make, and one which runs counter to the very core of our mission to publish a range of voices and views.”
The Submit famous the writer simply nixed a distribution deal for a e book authored by John Mattingly, one of many cops concerned within the killing of Breonna Taylor in Kentucky. They did not observe Simon & Schuster canceled a e book cope with Sen. John Hawley on The Tyranny of Huge Tech two days after the Capitol riot. That e book will probably be printed by Regnery on Could 4.
A cancel publication petition from the staff might be discovered on-line with the everyday leftist whining:
The occasions of the previous week have affirmed that Simon & Schuster has chosen complicity in perpetuating white supremacy by publishing Mike Pence and persevering with to distribute books for Submit Hill Press, together with predator Matt Gaetz’s FIREBRAND.
By selecting to publish Mike Pence, Simon & Schuster is producing wealth for a central determine of a presidency that unequivocally advocated for racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, anti-Blackness, xenophobia, misogyny, ableism, islamophobia, antisemitism, and violence. This isn’t a distinction of opinions; that is legitimizing bigotry.
Lengthy earlier than his Vice Presidency, Mike Pence made a profession out of discriminating towards marginalized teams and denying sources to BIPOC and LGBTQA+ communities. From advocating for legalized discrimination towards LGBTQ+ individuals, to eroding the educating of science in favor of Christian theology in public-funded colleges, to ending power effectivity packages, to pushing for weapons to be in colleges and automobiles, to taking away funding for and shutting down clinics treating HIV sufferers, to selling conversion remedy, to denying bodily autonomy to pregnant individuals, to abandoning a nation in disaster because the coronavirus ran rampant and killed greater than half 1,000,000 Individuals. Mike Pence has literal and figurative blood on his fingers. We demand you cancel Mike Pence’s e book deal.
Hopefully Karp will persist with his phrase and never give in to the rising workforce/wokeforce censorship.
