Latest Victim of Cancel Culture: Gandhi

Yes, really.

Published

on

NPR has dug up the equivalent of Gandhi’s old tweets and denounced him as a racist.

That’s right; Gandhi is cancelled!

“While Gandhi is deeply revered as a spiritual and political leader, people are now scrutinizing his sexual practices and his early writings in South Africa, which many black Africans are calling racist,” NPR tweeted.

According to the article, “many black Africans are calling Gandhi a racist” and “#MeToo activists are questioning his sexual practices.”

So Gandhi, the godfather of civil disobedience and an inspiration for the civil rights movement, wasn’t woke enough.

The source of the contention appears to be Gandhi’s view, which was widespread at the time he lived, that Africans were uncivilized.

“In 1903, when Gandhi was in South Africa, he wrote that white people there should be “the predominating race.” He also said black people “are troublesome, very dirty and live like animals,” reports NPR.

It doesn’t appear to matter that Gandhi subsequently became an avowed anti-racist, but then again, cancel culture isn’t known for its capacity for forgiveness.

The #MeToo charge against Gandhi is that he once slept naked with his teenage grandniece to test his willpower to abstain from sex, which is “abuse” by today’s standards.

Respondents to the NPR tweet were unimpressed.

“Let’s go back in history and judge everyone by modern day morals so we can cancel them all!” commented one.

“The same black Africans that for centuries have been killing each other for belonging to different tribes?” asked another.

“This is like lambasting people who 200 years ago for not knowing how a computer works,” added another.

Jersey Police Criticized Over TikTok Dance Routine

“Too busy to investigate crime then?”

Jersey Police faced criticism after a video emerged showing multiple officers practicing a dance routine for a TikTok video while residents remain under lockdown restrictions.

The clip shows eight officers taking part in the dance while they are guarded by a further two officers on motorbikes. Two other people are filming the scene with professional cameras.

Although Jersey is more open than mainland UK, it still has numerous restrictions in place that prevent people gathering in large groups.

Respondents to the video expressed the view that police resources would be better used elsewhere while asserting it set a bad example for those still living under restrictions.

“So, it is illegal for my children to meet with friends to play outside and yet the police are getting away with this? Absolutely disgraceful behaviour and a kick in the teeth to all those abiding by the rules as best they can,” said one.

“Does nobody @JerseyPolice realise how bad this looks. Rolling on the floor laughing we’re giving you fines for socialising, but look at our funky dances. Embarrassing and shameful. Silly authoritarians,” added another.

“Too busy to investigate crime then?” asked another.

“After a tough day of diversity training and lecturing people over offensive messages, Jersey police finish off the day with a Tiktok video,” joked another.

Last year, NHS nurses faced similar criticism after taking part in a trend of dancing videos during the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

Although many claimed they were just blowing off steam, family members of people who had their cancer screenings cancelled due to lockdown complained that the routines were insensitive.

Amazon Redesigns Logo to Look Less Like Hitler after Complaints

App image vaguely resembled dictator’s mustache.

Amazon

Amazon was forced to redesign a new logo for its app after Twitter users claimed that the image resembled Adolf Hitler.

Yes, really.

The newly re-worked app logo, which was released in January, featured a cardboard box design with a strip of blue tape on it.

After the launch, Twitter users complained that the image reminded them of the toothbrush mustache worn by the Nazi dictator.

“My parents use Amazon nearly every day,” said Sam Hutchings. “They’re going to be lost for the next few days. When they ask where Amazon’s gone, I’ll tell them to look for the cardboard Hitler…”

Yesterday, people began to notice that the design had been changed, with the blue tape now looking more like a post-it note.

Amazon reportedly made the change back on February 22nd.

The company didn’t acknowledge that it changed the logo due to complaints about it supposedly resembling Hitler, although it seems very likely.

In a vague statement provided to TODAY, the company said, “Amazon is always exploring new ways to delight our customers. We designed the new icon to spark anticipation, excitement, and joy when customers start their shopping journey on their phone, just as they do when they see our boxes on their door step.”

Video: Candace Owens Slams Dems’ “Unbelievably Offensive” Equality Act

“They believe in sameness. Making everybody a carbon copy of the others.”

Appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight, author and commentator Candace Owens tore into the Democrats’ ‘Equality Act’, calling it “unbelievably offensive” and “a terrifying agenda that eliminates women.”

The bill, which passed the House last week outlines a framework for dismissing biological differences between men and women.

“I find this to be unbelievably offensive: the idea there is nothing different between men and women,” Owens urged, adding that Democrats “don’t know what equality is. They don’t know what equality means.”

“What they are saying right now is that, LeBron James, when he was at high school, with all his physical prowess, should have been able to say: ‘I no longer identify as a man, I identify as a woman,’ and he should have been allowed to compete against every other woman, and that would have been deemed equal,” Owens emphasised.

“They believe in sameness. Making everybody a carbon copy of the others,” Owens declared, adding “They hate the idea between male, female, girl, boy.”

The best-selling author also said she has been called “a bigot, a hateful individual, a transphobe” for her views, noting that “the left likes to use these pejoratives when you are just speaking common sense.”

Owens comments echo those of President Trump who told the CPAC conference that the ‘integrity’ of women’s sports is under threat from trans athletes, prompting frothing backlash from leftists.
