Cancel Culture, with the support of the woke mob, had quite a run-up until recently. In 2020, Drew Brees had the audacity to suggest that disrespecting our flag and National Anthem before NFL games was a bad idea, but when the wokesters broke out their pitchforks, Brees folded like a poker novice with an 8-high hand. When it became known that Kevin Hart had the gall to make harmless jokes about gays a decade earlier, the Motion Picture Academy forced him out of his Oscars gig, and issued so many apologies, he may still be begging for forgiveness.

The reason Cancel Culture had been on the rise and had become so feared is that it was effective. If someone, anyone, dare utter or write anything even slightly in conflict with the leftists’ worldview, they were heretics. A handful of protesters outside of a corporate headquarters would have CEOs hiding under their desks and doing anything necessary to appease the bloodthirsty dozens.

But we’ve seen a shift in recent months. Netflix told employees who disagree with their programming to go find another job. Woke employees have been screaming at Amazon to shut down the sales of books exposing the insanity of their transgender arguments, and Jeff Bezos and company have ignored them. And now we have another example, this time from the overwhelmingly leftist world of academia.

According to The Hill:

“George Washington University (GWU) has rejected its student body’s calls to remove Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas from his adjunct professor role in the aftermath of the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

In a letter sent on Tuesday, GWU officials said that they will not remove Thomas from his current position with the school because he has not violated the school’s policy on academic freedom, saying that Thomas is free to express his own opinion even though his views do not reflect the school.

‘Because we steadfastly support the robust exchange of ideas and deliberation, and because debate is an essential part of our university’s academic and educational mission…’”

Justice Thomas’ sin, according to those in the student body, was merely to vote in a way that they don’t like. Or, more accurately stated, the GWU wokesters wanted Thomas canned for the temerity of accurately interpreting the Constitution and for casting a vote to overturn one of the worst SCOTUS decisions in our nation’s history.

While it’s refreshing to see a left-wing institution like GWU stand its ground in the name of philosophical freedom, what might be even more encouraging is the background of that university. Only two weeks ago, GWU was in the news for its decision to change the name of its school mascot. Prior to the decision, the Washington D.C.-based school had been known by the dreaded, hateful, racist moniker of “Colonials.” And no, that’s not a joke.

Will the decision by George Washington University to push back against the woke mob take hold elsewhere in academia? Will the ridiculousness of Cancel Culture continue to ebb in corporate America? Only time will tell, but it appears that we may indeed be seeing a trend. As they say, better late than never.
