America is witnessing a cultural purge unlike anything seen in this nation before. Books, magazines, movies, television shows, authors, columnists, are all being “cancelled” as revisionists seek reasons to find offense and demand the removal of that which they find offensive. A diversity of ideas is no longer in fashion, replaced by “Groupthink.”
