Piers Morgan: Cancel culture is a ‘war on freedom,’ Meghan Markle tried to force an apology

There is no more pernicious influence on free speech than the cancel culture, the tactic of choice when it comes to the “woke” left’s ruthless seizure of political power and the need to bully critics into submission through shaming and silencing them.

Piers Morgan, who knows this all too well, talked about the corrosive effects of censorship, something that he himself personally experienced in a high-profile spat with Meghan Markle.

Sitting down with Fox News host Brian Kilmeade on Saturday’s edition of “One Nation with Brian Kilmeade,” Morgan discussed the “war on our freedom” through the quashing of free speech that has ironically been spearheaded by those who ply their trade in the journalistic profession, most recently by Rolling Stone, a publication which no longer even remotely resembles the crusading entity that it was in its golden days when it featured dissident voices who challenged the corrupt establishment which some say the magazine is now part of.

After the two broke down the magazine’s screed which Ernest Owens argued that “has given a voice to the voiceless” based on the false premise that “the voting rights we once thought were protected are under attack,” a ridiculous justification for censorship that Morgan thinks is complete bollocks.

“Well, it’s complete lunacy to say it’s good for democracy. It’s the complete opposite, it’s terrible for democracy. If you live in a free, democratic society, you should have the basic fundamental right to have freedom of expression and freedom of speech,” said Morgan.

He continued: “But the antithesis of that is this mindset that Rolling Stone has put out with this writer, which is the woke mindset, which is, ‘You will agree with everything I say about how you should think, act, behave, what you should read, what you should watch, what statutes you can reveal, what history you can accept, and if you deviate one iota from that — one iota — we’re going to shame you, vilify you, abuse you, cancel you, round up your families and do all sorts of terrible things to you.'”

Morgan also brought up his row with the thin-skinned Duchess of Sussex that led to his highly publicized departure from “Good Morning Britain,” leading to the failed actress turned scourge of the Royal family after her marriage to the sour and entitled Prince Harry.

“I loved the show — we tripled the ratings in five years. It was on fire, the show,” he said. “And then the Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Oprah Winfrey whine-a-thon aired. I said, ‘I thought it was all a lot of nonsense and dangerous, nasty nonsense.’ I said, ‘I wouldn’t believe Meghan Markle if she read me a weather report.’ I stand by that statement. I think it’s aged pretty well.”

“But the point that was really startling was she then contacts the boss of my company, ITV — a big network in the U.K. — and she says, ‘You’ve got to fire him for not believing me. It’s racist.’ So they basically put me in a position where either I apologize publicly to Meghan Markle for just [not] believing her lies, or I had to leave, so I decided to leave.”

Markle and her ginger-haired, emasculated hubby are currently fuming about their portrayal in a recent “South Park” episode and have reportedly summoned their legal team to brainstorm about possible actions that may be taken over such disrespect to them, reportedly even possibly forcing the offending episode to be flushed down the memory hole.

“Was I cancelled? Well in a way, she engineered my departure from a show that I loved, but I was not going to allow that mentality to force me into some pathetic, insincere apology that I didn’t mean,” Morgan said of the Markle affair. “But that’s where we’ve got to where people like Meghan Markle think they can control actually how people are employed.”

As for Rolling Stone’s championing of cancel culture, billionaire SpaceX/Tesla CEO and “Chief Twit” Elon Musk perfectly summed it up.

“How blatantly obnoxious that they just want to keep canceling people! Do they ever write about music anymore?” Musk opined on Twitter. “They should rename themselves ‘Scolding Stone’, as all they seem to do these days is holier-than-thou nagging.”
