"Conservative" Radio Station WMAL, Under Control of the "Conservative" Media Group Cumulus, Fires Actual Conservative Amber Athey Because Some Transextremists Ginned Up a Cancel Campaign Against Her

I'll personally be cancelling WMAL and Cumulus Radio, forever.

If "our own" media outlets are tyrannical leftwing cancel culture warriors themselves, then what use are they to us?

During the State of the Union, Kamala Harris wore a brown suit which almost merged with the brown leather chair she was seated upon.

This caused a lot of snarking on Twitter.

Note the suit is essentially the same color as the chairs.

Amber Athey herself snarked about it, referencing UPS' motto. She tweeted:

Amber Athey @amber_athey

Kamala looks like a UPS employee -- what can brown do for you? Nothing good, apparently.

No one thought that this was... anything. Anything at all. Just another lame joke on Twitter.

Until...

Until Amber Athey upset the aggressively mentally-ill transextremist Fake Gender Cultists, who got mad that she commented on their repulsive behavior in trying to shut down speech at the University of North Texas.

You know -- where they shut down the speech of Jeff Younger, whose child was taken away from him so that the child's non-biological mother could turn him "trans" without interference.

You may remember this:


The "protest" featured this bizarre creature:

So Amber Athey wrote critically of these angry mentally-ill fascists.

And they attempted to cancel her:

No one had a problem with the tweet until a few days later, when I spoke critically of protests in favor of "trans kids" at the University of North Texas. A group of maniacal left-wing activists who want to chemically castrate children in the name of "gender affirmation" came after me. All of a sudden, the Kamala tweet was being re-framed as racist and dozens of Twitter accounts were bragging about contacting my employers about my "bigotry."

I have written about these dishonest smear campaigns in the past. The people who engage in them do not actually care about stamping out racism, or transphobia, or whatever. They only use those labels because they know they are powerful tools for silencing their opponents.

This attempt at cancellation failed -- so they went looking through her social media to find something else they could cancel her for.

They decided that they would claim that her UPS "What can brown do for you?" tweet was racist, and use "racism" as their new justification for cancellation.

And this time -- Cumulus Radio and WMAL decided to join in the cancellation.


Later that afternoon, just before 4 p.m., I received a call out of the blue from Jeff Boden, the vice president of Cumulus Washington, D.C, and Kriston Fancellas, the vice president of Human Resources.

They told me that the tweet I sent about Kamala was "racist" and that subsequent follow-ups defending myself and making fun of the efforts to cancel me were unacceptable. I had violated the company's social media policy, they said, and I was terminated effective immediately.

They did not have the courtesy to offer me an opportunity to defend myself, nor did they speak to anyone at the program before handing down their decision.

Despite multiple appeals, during which company officials admitted that the perception of racism was more important than whether or not my tweet was actually racist, the company has refused to reverse its decision. Meanwhile, my image and bio is still being used on the WMAL website and social media channels to promote their programming. I am racist enough not to be paid, but not so racist that my likeness cannot be affiliated with the station, apparently.

...

This incident has destroyed the integrity and reputation of WMAL and Cumulus as hosts of conservative content. We spoke frequently about the dangers of censorship and cancel culture on our program, and yet here they are bowing to the mob. If I can be fired for making fun of the vice president's outfit, every single host on a Cumulus station is in danger of losing their job at a moment's notice. Political commentary is worthless if it canít be used to speak truth to those in power without fear of professional consequences.

Cancel. Cancel hard, and cancel irrevocably.

It's time to make these Woke Corporations -- especially the ones who rely on only conservative dollars to pay their salaries -- that we do not give money to people who hate our guts.

And that we do not support cowards.

We cannot have people like this in any positions of authority or influence in our movement.

Maybe it's time to contact Cumulus' advertisers and let them know we will also be boycotting anyone advertising on Cumulus radio.

These are the people that our very woke "conservative" media cvcks are bowing to:
