Yesterday, Jesse Kelly launched was has got to be the most effective counter-insurgency against the Cancel Culture movement ever. He highlighted the shameful slave trading history of Yale University namesake Elihu Yale. And within hours the hashtag #CancelYale was trending on Twitter.
It started there and took off like wildfire.
The best part was the way Jesse used all the familiar tropes of the Cancel Culture movement to advance #CancelYale. He also employed the same arguments used for everything from reparations to the call to rename military bases named for Confederate Generals
It was a thing a beauty.
The best part of Jesse’s #CancelYale counter-insurgency was when he named and shamed Yale alumni for being complicit in Yale’s slavery past.
And let’s just say the Perpetually Offended Left did not handle #CancelYale at all well. I’d include some of the more well-I-nevery tweets Jesse quote-tweeted, but most of them were deleted.
But there were some that still survived to be screen-captured.
The funniest responses were from those who had no earthly idea what the #CancelYale counter-insurgency was all about.
Thanks to Jesse’s relentless campaign, Yale’s Twitter account ended up deleting some tweets when the #CancelYale crowd swarmed the replies. Which is why the Yale tweet Jesse quote-tweeted here does not appear:
In other words, Jesse turned the Cancel Culture tactics back on the Cancel Culture in the most righteous “How do you like it?!” maneuver ever.
And five hours after he began this counter-insurgency, #CancelYale was trending like wildfire.
But Jesse didn’t stop at #CancelYale. As the evening progressed, he also pointed out the racist, slave-owning histories of the founders of Rice University, Brown University and Georgetown.
It was absolutely delightful to watch.
I have to admit, watching someone throw this nonsense back in the faces of the Cancel Culture dummies is extremely satisfying. Jesse Kelly is definitely not a part of the Coward Culture. There are many ways to fight back against the Cancel Culture insanity, and Kelly’s #CancelYale is an example of what Rush Limbaugh often does — pointing out absurdity by being absurd.
And the fact that the Perpetually Offended have no idea what to make of it is just the icing on the cake.
