The clip above says it all.
Serbian professional soccer player Aleksandar Katai has now been fired by the LA Galaxy Soccer Team for his wife’s Instagram posts.
According to the Left’s cancel culture, it’s now perfectly acceptable to hold you personally to blame for “allowing” your spouse/partner/relative to post that unacceptable tweet or Instagram.
Is this now 1920 all over again?
As we embark on this new realization, how many vulnerable women will soon discover that they can only speak or write if it meets their spouse’s approval?
How many will have their voices silenced by partners, who are now able to use the very public firing of a spouse, like this, as the justification for taking their voice?
Even one is too many.
Where in this saga were the public leaders who spoke up for them? Where are they today?
In its rush to quash dissent at any price…in its rush to impose its own form of morality on the Universe, the Left seems quite willing to undo the last 100 years of progress we have made in women’s rights. That is not OK.
Several years back, I led a group of West Point Cadets on a trip to visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in DC. On the wall of the museum is a quotation from Martin Niemöller about the German intellectuals and clergy (including himself) whose public cowardice permitted the nightmare of Nazi Germany to initially gain sway in Germany.
If you visit the Holocaust Museum you will learn that Niemöller was a German War Hero and prominent Lutheran pastor who initially supported the Nazi regime but later emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler. He spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in a concentration camp (actually more than one).
Today, he is perhaps best known for his observation in 1946:
“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—
and there was no one left to speak for me.”
