Political pundit and author Dave Rubin asked, “Where are all the adults in the room?” reacting to the so-called cancel culture sweeping the nation following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.
“This thing is out of control,” Rubin told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday.
Rubin reacted to the recent resignations of two newspaper editors among other incidents related to “cancel culture.'”
New York Times editorial page editor James Bennet resigned last week, amid anger inside the company over the publication of an op-ed from Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., supporting the deployment of the National Guard to help quell the unrest over Floyd’s death.
The Philadelphia Inquirer’s top editor also reportedly resigned after a staff uproar over a “Buildings Matter, Too” headline that ran on an article lamenting damage to businesses amid turbulent protests over Floyd’s death.
Also, HBO Max pulled the Oscar-winning Civil War epic “Gone With the Wind” from its library and the television series “Cops” was pulled from the air amid heightened racial tensions and the growing civil unrest spurred by Floyd’s death.
On Thursday, host Steve Doocy noted that Rubin has been “talking about cancel culture for about five years” and asked: “how did we wind up here?”
“What the left has become is an amorphous mob that will take out anyone who does not bow immediately when they want you to bow,” Rubin said in response.
“I mean the idea we’re going to take ‘Gone With the Wind’ off HBO, we could take everything off,” he continued.
