Synopsis of the Documentary
The film shows countless examples of canceled culture and controlling liberals disrupting otherwise regular events. Ben Ferguson begins the documentary by recalling how it all began. He recalls a Christian baker, Jack Phillips, declining a cake request from a lesbian couple for their wedding. A massive outcry ensues as soon as this is made public. Ben emphasizes how Jack was really kind to the homosexual couple and even provided them with another choice for a cake maker.
Jody Hice follows Ben by noting that this was something that repealed everything that American culture had to offer. Jody went on to say that there should never be a circumstance in which individuals are hesitant to express themselves. Yelp evaluations for the Colorado bakery involved in the gay wedding cake controversy have dropped.
In an interview, Jack, to the point of tears, confesses that his wife is terrified to come into the shop some days because they have received death threats, and harassing phone calls, and the government has forced them to give up 40% of the business. Ben goes on to illustrate how powerful the online cancel culture mob is.
He claims that they may now regulate how businesses operate and utterly devastate people’s lives. Then a new face enters the picture: Ric Grenell, the first openly homosexual person to serve in a cabinet position under a president. He reveals that they are also attempting to revoke his attendance at Carnegie Mellon University, where he is a fellow. Mercedes Schlapp then follows Rick and explains the paradox, the left’s attempt to cancel a higher-achieving openly homosexual individual. Mercedes Schlapp then cites Allison Stanger, a well-known academic, as another example of this. Allison had a concussion and whiplash while escorting a speaker across campus since the students didn’t agree with her ideas.
About Matt Schlapp
Matthew Aaron “Matt“ Schlapp was born on December 18, 1967. In the United States, he is the president of the American Conservative Union, a political activist, and a lobbyist. Schlapp worked as President George W. Bush’s deputy assistant and political director during his first term. Schlapp began his political career in 1994 as a press secretary, campaign manager, and chief of staff for Representative Todd Tiahrt for five years (R-KS). During the George W. Bush administration, he was the political director. He was counseling the President, Vice President, cabinet members, and key White House officials.
Schlapp married Mercedes Schlapp, whom he met while she was the director of specialist media in the White House. They co-founded Cove Strategies, a communications and political consulting firm located in Alexandria, Virginia.
From September 2017 until July 2019, she served as the Trump administration’s Director of Strategic Communications. Since July 2019, she has been working on Trump’s re-election campaign in 2020.
Schlapp made contentious remarks about the George Floyd demonstrations, which began on May 26, 2020. He accused Black Lives Matter of being “…hostile to families, capitalism, cops, unborn life and gender.” Schlapp was paid $200,000 per year for lobbying efforts by Verizon and Abbott Labs, and $120,000 per year by Comcast. Because of his views, Verizon terminated his contract in June 2020, and Abbott Labs was chastised for hiring Cove Strategies and Schlapp as lobbyists despite Abbott’s declared dedication to social justice, and therefore severed connections with Schlapp. Comcast quickly followed suit.
