New group, Unsilenced Majority, goes after woke left with a ‘dose of their own medicine’

Powered by Topple

The newly launched Unsilenced Majority grassroots conservative-leaning organization intends to fight back against the unconstitutional cancel culture and the woke mob that enables it in America’s workplaces and schools.

Mike Davis, an attorney and former key aide to U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Mo.) on the Judiciary Committee, is the free-speech group’s founder and president and reportedly intends to give the woke left “a dose of their own medicine.”

This effort perhaps gives a new meaning to “fully vaccinated.”

“We strongly believe that corporate censorship, thought-policing and politically motivated blacklists and boycotts are having a corrosive effect on our country and will ultimately lead to a less free world,” Davis explained in a statement. “The Unsilenced Majority speaks for an emboldened majority of Americans who recognize the imminent threat that cancel culture poses to our nation.”

As its outreach unfolds, the group plans to provide a counterbalance to the cancel culture by, among other things, encouraging free-speech advocates to make their feelings known to elected officials as well as corporations and others that may be susceptible to far-left propaganda.

The organization’s primary issues include “free expression without fear of retribution,” “cancel culture in education,” and “corporate wokeism.”

Another targeted issue is worker firings, which suggests perhaps that the organization might take legal action on behalf of any employee who loses a job merely for not going along with a divisive far-left ideology with which they disagree.

“We also believe that freedom of speech and diversity of thought are fundamental bedrocks of a free society and should always be protected and celebrated…The rising intolerance of cancel culture is breeding fear and paranoia in our politics, across the corporate world, at our children’s schools and even in our neighborhoods. It must be stopped,” the Unsilenced Majority website explains.

The most recent examples of cancel culture that made news include the American Airlines pilot who is under investigation by his employer for criticizing his local school district’s embrace of radical critical race theory and the U.S. Space Force commander who was dismissed from his post for authoring a book about what he sees as creeping Marxism throughout the American military.

Davis has noted that the “un-American” cancel culture unfortunately also comes for ordinary folks rather than just those in high-profile careers, Fox News reported.

Indeed, as cancel culture has gained traction, individuals have found themselves sometimes out of work, ostracized, censored, de-platformed, doxed, and worse for past or present “thought crimes.”

Joining Davis in this effort are conservative luminaries such as attorneys Will Chamberlain and Ian Prior and ex-Trump White House adviser Andy Surabian.

Previously, conventional wisdom held that campus activists and other like-minded advocates would have to go through an attitude adjustment when they took jobs in the real world.

It turns out — as particularly evidenced in the last year or so — that just the opposite has occurred, with the often-virtue-signaling business community often quickly giving in to both internal and external far-left pressure to succumb to corporate wokeism.
