Glenn Greenwald posted on Twitter on Monday to highlight the use of scare tactics by the left that is increasingly being used as a way of harassment and intimidation against Americans by a woke left, who have no filters, and no respect for people’s civil liberties, to stop themselves from getting ahead.
Glenn Greenwald posted in reaction to a post by a technology writer who made an observation about the tactics of weaponizing people’s social media posts out of context:
“One of the most amazing media tweets ever.”
One is tempted to laugh but there's ultimately nothing funny about what @TaylorLorenz does in ruining people's lives. She is whining that others weaponize her past against her. Here she used benign tweets to destroy a 20-year-old YouTuber that he posted when he was 16! Just look: pic.twitter.com/ydV4Vh7qsh

Lorenz was lamenting the power of cancel culture writing, “anything you say or reveal can be weaponized. The goal of these people is to push an anti-media narrative and smear campaigns. They’ll find anything, even the most benign things, and make a conspiracy about it.”
It is a dream come true for people with personality disorders and disorders that they can find posts and punish their enemies.
Cancel Culture is also about Marxist control according to the Center For Security Policy, who describe it as:
Cancel culture is the growing trend of social media and real mobs demanding anyone who violates the most recently-held politically correct position is erased. It’s a culture which is dangerously toxic, to those targeted, those who participate in it, and to the country as a whole.
In an article of hers from the Atlantic, Greenwald then noted that Taylor Lorenz used the exact same shaming smears against someone, as she appeared to be pouting about it when it was used against her.
So, knowing the power of the smear campaign and the tactics, she turns around and does it herself. Where is the self-control to not add to the problem?
“One is tempted to laugh but there’s ultimately nothing funny about what @TaylorLorenz does in ruining people’s lives. She is whining that others weaponize her past against her. Here she used benign tweets to destroy a 20-year-old YouTuber that he posted when he was 16!”
“I cannot stress this enough. It’s one of the most toxic pathologies plaguing journalism. So many suffer from this extreme entitlement complex. Raised in vast wealth and privilege, they think they can ruin anyone’s lives they want. Then, if you criticize them, it’s harassment.”
What Taylor Lorenz does to people on the front page of the world's most powerful newspaper, and then the way she turns herself into the victim over the life-destroying weapons she deploys against people, is just unreal. Just look at this:https://t.co/3N2nHjNKLG pic.twitter.com/XuVsOI1Lhe

Greenwald is a classic liberal who describes in his Twitter bio as: “Journalist; Author, “Securing Democracy”; Co-Founder, The Intercept; Columnist, @CartaCapita; HOPE Shelter (@abrigo_hope); vegan; Insta: Glenn.11.Greenwald”
In many of his writings, he is opposed to Marxist control tactics, cancel culture, which is being used to get ahead of opponents and competitors, and in pursuits of pure revenge.
He points out the cancel culture media, The Daily Beast, where Lorenz is either bragging or just trying to intimidate other journalists with warnings to be very frightened of the leftist’s tactics that she herself uses to beat out her competition.
Greenwald’s posts come at the same time famous basketball player Charles Barkley commented on the use of cancel culture upon his own career.
In a recent outkick article, they reported:
“The cancel culture losers have come for many. And according to Charles Barkley, they quietly got him too.
On 106.7 The Fan in Washington DC, Barkley slammed the jackasses who aimed at him.
“Like, it’s gotten so out of hand right now, I couldn’t imagine having to watch myself. You can’t even have fun nowadays without these jackasses trying to get you canceled and things like that.”
Just who are these pathetic jackasses? Apparently, random people who’ve gotten to Barkley’s bosses at Turner.”
Charles Barkley says cancel culture is ruining his NBA TV show & he’s retiring in two years. Says his bosses at Turner are cowards when it comes to losers online being upset. Boom: https://t.co/I7f2o1d7ua

I think that is a good way to describe cancel culture myself.
