My god, we would have to navigate the internet acting as though humans really do act like humans! Itís all a Philip K. Dick novel!
Yeah, the biggest proponents of "cancel culture" in this thread either want it to exist because "haha lookit them smarty libs" or because they really seem to have no idea how humans interact.

Oh, no, those libs got a bridge to be cancelled, too! The 6th Street Viaduct was cancelled less than 18 days after it opened due to workers collective lesbian woke terf podcast cannibalism!

The workers collective set their Instagram to private and deleted their video. The revolution will not be televised.

See what I mean about power? Just by telling you where the video is mirrored you've deprived yourself of this wondrous story about a whole classroom of second graders who fought back against gender oppression and inspired you to mock this brave teacher and her heartfelt video.

That's not cancel culture, that's straight up government oppression of the downtrodden street racers, bridge climbers and Instagram poseurs.

Wait, people didn't like LoTT mischaracterising and/or fabricating their story so they went private? Oh noes!!!

Can you tell me which one was cancelled, here? The one who was deprived of using someone else's image and name to promote an agenda (LoTT), or the ones who chose to stop allowing LoTT to promote his/her/their agenda at the expense of "workers collective"?

Meh, my drunk racist uncle used to love to forward stuff like that. Every time anyone took the effort to look into it, it was just another "and the whole class stood up and clapped" stupid fiction. When the drunk racist who died years ago was doing it, it wasn't edgy, and it hasn't gotten any more "oooh, burn" since them.

It's just as much cancel culture as a podcast breaking up, tho.

Leaving LoTT as the only chronicler of events. Way to stick it to the man, revolutionary workers. It was the bar, Doc Marie's that was cancelled.

Your uncle used to share videos of teachers celebrating their victories I the gender revolution? I suppose there's a chance the teacher could be a fake

But you said it was open again?? So...nothing was cancelled, but this is a great example of cancel culture?

Oh wow, you just keep on implying that LoTT doesn't write anything at all when presenting these stories.

It just might be, it's no longer labeled temporarily closed on google however their Instagram, the one where we're supposed to check for updates is dead in the water.

By and large, it's a Twitter account. You'd know this if you did any research.

Oh, noes, because Instagram accounts are always where I get my info on whether a business is open when I'm looking from another country.

In my experience, twits who use twitter tend to write things in their tweets. YMMV

It's a new world now gramps. Every small business needs a robust social media presence and should have a designated social media manager. Social media would be, by far the best place for Doc Marie's to post their daily drink specials and pictures of hot lesbians. Without Instagram you'd have no way of knowing they have a drag brunch and you'd miss out on it.

Yes, Twitterers tweet, point being you can click on the link to the teacher video without having to worry about LoTT making a dime off of you. Had you scrolled through their Twitter you would have found out that as we speak, Media Matters is trying to get LoTT's Shopify account cancelled. You may even have the opportunity to jump right in and help that attempted cancellation out. Get yourself a LoTT coffee mug first because if the cancellation is successful, those things might just turn out to be eBay gold to your grandchildren.

Maybe that's how they do it in your country, person I'd wager is at least as old as I am, but Instagram isn't even on the radar of any of the 4 bars within walking distance of where I'm sitting right now/downtown Atlanta right by the largest University (by student body) in the state.

Wait, you seem to be waffling here. Did LoTT simply repost stuff other people shared without any video editing or commentary by LoTT whatsoever? Because if that's the case, why the **** would anybody care about either their twitter account or their merch?

First bar I came across in Atlanta. Maybe an old bar with an established clientele might not need a social media presence and are content to live in the dinosaur age but any bar trying to attract new clientele is shooting themselves in the foot.

That's what I've been saying all along, they just barf up other people's content, it's their whole shtick, it even says so right at the top of their twitter. " All videos belong to their respective owners". Why would anybody want an aggregating site like eBaum's World when you can just go out and spend hours finding the content on your own. Why for convenience and lols while you're waiting for your vegan burger patties to cook of course. I can't speak as to why anybody would want to buy their merchandise. Wear it to a MAGA rally maybe?

Exactly how new do you think Park Bar is? Exactly how big do you think Atlanta is? Or how many bars do you think are here? You found...one? Mighty impressive.

And if you think downtown in a College area is all "old bar with established clientele" then you've never been to a large downtown or large college area.

So now we're back to "they don't comment at all on their own tweets"? Can you make up your mind?

Like I said, it was the first bar I came across. Wait...How did we get here. Oh Yea, you were trying to downplay the importance of social media in business marketing for some reason. You wouldn't care about it but many people do. To lots of people social media is the internet and if s business can do without it then more power to them...but not many do without.

The words you used were "video editing". Do you think those videos are edited? I guess there's no way you'd know is there, bring scared giving the site clicks and all. What LoTT doesn't do is give the original source of their mirrored videos, probably to protect those accounts from getting dog piled but hey, if someone makes a video and leaved they're ownership information in, then that's their problem.

So what if they comment or give the video a title. You'd have to point out where they are falsifying the contents of the video they linked to to make that worth anything.

Or take this teacher. Moved to tears that every single child in her second grade class changed their pronouns once one child did. All of them, misgendered by their parents. Mirrored by LoTT, that scary site but without that site we never would have know such a miracle had occurred. You can than me later.
Oh my, they would have been moved to tears by my third grade class, way back in the 60s, after having a kiddy biography of Helen Keller read to us, half of us were being led around the playground by our best friend with our eyes closed! When kids hear about a new or different concept, they get into it. It's a way of learning and thinking about things. Imagine that!

It's so cute how you're clinging to the idea that if a bar doesn't have instagram it's doomed to failure, despite only being aware of 2 bars in all of America that have (or had) an Instagram account. Sure, Instagram is what makes or breaks a bar.

I did use the words "video editing", as well as the word "commentary". It's a shame your comprehension stopped at the the word "or" in between them.

I'm "scared" of going to LoTT just as much as I'm "scared" of reading Weekly World News: not at all, it's simply drivel that's not worth my time. But as you're enamored with this particular video about kids learning about pronouns, can you explain to the rest of us how it's Cancel Culture? And dear god please let it be better than the existing examples you guys have of "well, the bar temporarily closed but it's back up now" or "well, the podcast I like got into an internal squabble and fell apart" or "well, two people who don't like each other said mean things about each other on their blogs" that seem to be the best examples you can find after months of searching.

Nowhere did I say a bar was "doomed to failure" if they didn't have a social media presence, that's something you've made up what I said was is a bar should have a social media presence if they want to maximize their chances of success which is a route Doc Marie's has obviously taken. You just need to deal with the fact that Doc Marie's will be posting their updates on Instagram and if you're loathe to deal with that format, then simply miss out.

Now that we've determined the videos aren't edited, we have to determine if the added commentary ( if any ) does indeed match the content of the video. I say it does while you're NO! LoTT scary...do not want! approach totally prohibits you from proving me wrong.

A video can go from the most wonderful progressive thing when it's on TikTok but the minute it ends up mirrored on LoTT suddenly it somehow evil. This is some wild twisted logic we're dealing with here.

Wait, you previously said they were off Instagram or set to private, but now they're back? So even this bit of "cancelled" was just a temporary little bit?

Dang, why does reality have such a hate-on for you guys and your proofs of cancel culture?

Yep, oh so scary! Just like OAN or Weekly World News or The Watchtower, the only reason not to read or watch them is because you're scared!

You still haven't explained how the second grader video is cancel culture. Struggling with coming up with a reason it's on topic rather than just a gratuitous swipe at...second graders? teachers? libs?

I was the workers collective that sent their Instagram to private, not Doc Marie's. Please try to keep the facts straight.

As for the rest...This whole derail started when LoTT was used as a source to detail an event that paralleled another event that was extensively discussed in this thread. Doc Marie's was subjected to the same form of cancel culture as Mina's World only this time, we haven't made it to the no...this didn't happen.

It is difficult to keep the facts straight in this example of cancel culture that doesn't include anyone or anything that was cancelled, I'll give you that. So...when you said the Instagram account you were supposed to check for updates was dead in the water, and you talked about using Instagram to attract new clientele or advertise drink specials, you weren't talking about the bar? I didn't know workers collectives advertised drink specials. Guess that's just more of your new world. Or, maybe, you can't keep your facts straight?

Ok, let's see what we can do to get there. I'll totally let you drop your off topic crusade to laugh at second graders to focus on whether "it" happened. What's "it" again? Closed down? Mina's World yes, Doc Marie's no. Dang, that must not be it. Failed due to poor business planning? Mina's World yes (again), Doc Marie's...not yet, I guess? Cancelled by some external group? Mina's World no, Doc Marie's also no.

Well dang it, I can't be sure what "it" you are referring to, so you're going to have to tell us what "it" is before we can see if "it" happened.

Doc Marie's account was dead in the water, as in not moving, nothing happening, no updates, hasn't had any entries past their action plan statement. That kind of dead in the water. Not sunk to the bottom of the sea where nobody can see it like the worker's collective account.

The rest of your post is a bit of a word salad but I'll try. You're trying to deny that anybody would ever act on a political philosophy that would have the means of production transferred to the workers. Did I get that right?

Ah, so like the vast majority of bars in the US, Doc Marie's isn't using Instagram to announce their daily specials. And this is news because...?

No, I can't see how you got anything about a political philosophy or means of production out of what I wrote. At all. Are you sure you're not trying to shoehorn one of your philosophical hobby horses in here, like you did while mocking 2nd graders?

We can agree that you raised Doc Marie's Instagram account as an example of cancel culture while apparently being ignorant of how little Insta matters to businesses like Doc Marie's, sure.

Since you have now claimed that Doc Marie's is open, they seem to have found staff they can trust even if they (like virtually all other bars in the US) haven't found a need to use the social media venue that you deemed necessary.

You weren't trying to mock the children by using the video LoTT posted to mock the children? Sure, ok.

I do love how conservatives glom onto phrases that were used against them with so little understanding of those phrases. In the cargo cult conservative world, not caring about a particular twitter account means you're scared of it and that you have "a twitter account that Stout claimed adds nothing to and writes nothing about what they share" derangement syndrome.

Maybe kinda sort of. Doc Maries Instagram presence was brought up because.....that's where their website directly points. Just in case you've forgotten. They obviously think it's important. You may also need a reminder that the worker's collective demands went down on Instagram so Instagram plays a Pretty big role. In case it's slipped your mind, the worker's collective Instagram is set to private.

Nope, they're seven year olds, They changed their pronouns in the morning by the afternoon they were dinosaurs.

If you don't care about a particular twitter account then why not just ignore it? Ah yes, the SJW credo prohibits that.

This is one of those "they obviously think it's important" claims where here in reality it's so important to Doc Marie's that....they don't bother with it?

Oh, it's linked to on their website? Their website that they probably hired someone else to make for them? How many other links are there on that website, and how many are to empty or dead pages? Because I've recently had to deal with a couple restaurant/bars down in St. Augistine where their entire website was a 404, despite the restaurant itself being open and doing business. Not to mention some that had links to their menu that were dead. The joys of trying to find a specific menu item for a picky friend. Anyway, the fact that bars and restaurants are able to run just fine without Instagram, or even functioning webpages, does make me snicker at how much emphasis you're putting on Doc Marie's not bothing to update Instagram.

Yep, for them this wasn't a thing worth immortalizing. Yet for you and LoTT it was, for some strange reason.

This may shock you, but I've been ignoring it ever since you and d4m10n(?) began trying to use it to prove your cancel culture claims. I haven't bothered to go there once, nor do I think or talk or post about it except to point out that your reliance on it isn't helping you prove your cancel culture IRL claims. Not the least of reasons for that being that...the stuff you guys are learning about from LoTT isn't even people or things being cancelled. As evidenced by Doc Marie's still being open and your bizarre attempt to mock 2nd graders.

They might still be closed, hard to tell without phoning them and asking them but they were updating it and posting until "the event". Brand new bar, brand new website and Instagram. Wonder why they'd even bother in the first place if they felt it unnecessary. Instagram is just a form of advertising, a form that's free and if the drinks look good and the food looks appetizing patrons might just decide to go there rather than to the competition. It's a pretty niche market though maybe they're open to select clientele only.

To who wasn't it worth immortalizing? The kids? I hope not, they're seven year olds. Suit yourself if you want to willfully ignore sources. It's way easier that trying to deal with the the information presented in them. Some people need to believe the earth is only 6000-10 000 years old and ignore science. Works for them.

Maybe they "bothered" because they were throwing everything at the wall to see what worked? Maybe Instagram wasn't pulling anybody in to the bar? Maybe that's why almost nobody else uses it either? Who knows?

When you don't even know if your latest greatest example of cancel culture is cancelled or not, that's kinda damning for the idea that cancel culture is this big thing in real life that we have to worry about. When the only thing that's been "cancelled" is a social media account, that's also not "IRL".

To everyone except for you and for LoTT, apparently. But since you don't want to drop this 2nd grader mockery, can you explain how it is cancel culture?

Not sure if this counts as cancel culture, but Beyonce agreed to change a lyric in one of her new songs to remove the word "spaz".

I haven't really heard it in the popular vernacular since about the mid 80s - it's a reference to spastic cerebral palsy.

Considering the world, probably not that big of deal. Whether it's due to image/brand I'm glad she did it. What I'm surprised about is that the years during the making, nobody around her mentioned "Uh, hey Beyonce, you may want to rethink this line, could be problematic."

Can you name two of the four bars which aren't on Instagram?

Will I? At first I was going to, but then I decided that 1) a bit too much personal info, and 2) I shouldn't bother answering the questions of someone who never answers questions himself.

Doc Marie's has updated their Instagram. The action plan post has been removes ( along with a bunch of other posts ) and they've changed their pronouns. Hallelujah! See what happens when you follow the Insta? You get to know things.

As of now, they appear to be uncancelled. Cancel culture survivors they are and given that they've updated their pronouns I might just pop in for a drink if I ever find myself in Portland. Unless they get cancelled again, which I'd know about because I follow them on Instagram.

You know what's even funnier than the video? the insistence that the video is about mocking children. It's more than obvious to anyone without LoTTDS that the target of the mockery is the teacher however it's not impossible that she has a class with only 2 students in it and both had been misgendered by their parents.

It's really about what people are willing and wanting to believe in order to make the world fit into their world view. The Earth is hollow and full of aliens, the LoTT video was mocking children, that sort of wackiness.

So...Doc Marie's is yet another "cancel culture IRL" example that...wasn't cancelled IRL or on social media. You guys just keep knocking these things out of the park with your examples!

Sure, sure, sooper silly to think a video is meant to be a mockery when that video's proponent goes on and on about how funny it is that 2nd graders switched pronouns.


AAAAAnyway, have you figured out how your LoTT video is on topic yet?

Guess I'd rather be canceled by online mobs than Russian plutocrats, but that's mostly because the former group rather rarely has access to chemical warfare agents like NovichokWP. Better to be jobless than lifeless, as my babushka used to say.

Here we go the kind of liberal cancel culture we all hate.

Cracker Barrel added Vegan sausage to the menu and people are boycotting in protest.

So, that'd be a "no" then.
Pathetic but hardly unexpected.
