Cancel culture comes for a witty police officer

One of the things that President Trump spoke out against in his masterful Mt. Rushmore speech was the “cancel culture” that is imposing a totalitarian straightjacket on America. That cancel culture is now going after a police officer who, in a lighthearted way, without naming names (including the name of his police department), pointed out the exquisite irony of at least one “defund the police” protest. A local Black Lives Matter spokesperson went full snowflake and cancel culture, and the department is now investigating him and two of his colleagues.
