Actor Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad fame, came out against Cancel Culture where he said that the left-wing action has made people less understanding of each other and has turned people to be harder on others which in turn has made society a lot less tolerant.
In a recent interview, Cranston told the Associated Press that Cancel Culture is a negative force.
It is a negative force, and that’s exactly what progressives strive for when they target someone.
“We live in this ‘cancel culture’ of people erring and doing wrong, either on purpose or by accident. And there’s less forgiveness in our world,” he said. “I think we’re unfortunately in a coarser environment. I think our societies have become harder and less understanding, less tolerant, less forgiving.”
Cancel Culture forgives leftists if they make a strong enough effort to ask for forgiveness, but they will never forgive anyone to the right of Stalin.
Cancel culture is a predominantly progressive leftist tactic where a campaign is created, normally on social media, and they usually try to get the mainstream media on board, and the campaign’s goal is to destroy a person’s reputation and their livelihood for the sin of embracing ideas that are not within their own echo chamber or for committing some transgressions in the past that were totally innocent at the time and remained that way until the progressives deemed such behavior as punishable. Context means nothing to the Cancel Culture crowd.

“Where does forgiveness live in our society?” Cranston asked. “Where can we accept someone’s behavior if they are contrite, if they are apologetic, and take responsibility?”
Mr. Heisenberg offered a thought that people should be “welcomed back in, as opposed to creating more fences. Creating more ‘you’re out, you’re in.’”
People are finding out that the tolerant Left aren’t so tolerant after all.
Cranston added, “I think we need to take a second look at that, and exhale, and realize that asking forgiveness and receiving forgiveness are not weaknesses but are human strengths.”
I wonder how long after he made the video it took for the progressive to create a campaign to cancel him?
Cranston campaigned against Donald Trump in 2016 and in 2020. He was also one of those Hollywood leftists who said he would move to Canada if Trump won.
Nonetheless, the Hollywood star castigated his fellow liberals in 2017, saying that it was wrong to wish America to fail under the president.
“President Trump is not the person who I wanted to be in that office,” he told the Hollywood Reporter. “And I’ve been very open about that. That being said, he is the president. If he fails, the country is in jeopardy. It would be egotistical for anyone to say, ‘I hope he fails.’”
“To that person I would say, f— you. Why would you want that? So you can be right?”
Hollywood leftists can be leftists, but when they use their fame to try to subvert elections they go too far. They can campaign for the candidate of their choice, but to try to change the process during or after an election just to rig it for their candidate, that’s too much.
Cranston added, “We’ve got to get away from this idea that our country is political football, and someone with a different opinion is the enemy. Assume they love this country as much as you do, and there’s always room for improvement. How can we make it better?”
Cranston is all over the place. It was only nine months ago that he joined the cacophony of leftists in Hollywood who were questioning the sanity of President Trump.
“I’ve stopped worrying about the president’s sanity,” Cranston said. “He’s not sane. And the realization of his illness doesn’t fill me with anger, but with profound sadness. What I now worry about is the sanity of anyone who can still support this deeply troubled man to lead our country.” If you’re a Trump supporter, he was talking about you.
It seems that Cranston is a leftist most of the time, but when he has some project that’s going to be hitting the public scene in a matter of time he goes against the leftist grain probably to piss fewer people off so that they support whatever project he’s in with their hard-earned dollars.
He’s a great actor, no doubt, but should conservatives continue to support great actors if they insult them publicly the way Cranston did? I’m not saying he should be canceled, but you should start to think about how you spend your money on entertainment to watch people who say nasty things about you.
