2021 Morphs Into 1984: Simon & Schuster Cancels Hawley Book

RUSH: The latest example of the cancel culture is Josh Hawley, senator from Missouri. Josh Hawley had a contract with Simon & Schuster to publish a book, and Simon & Schuster has canceled the contract. “In its online catalog, Simon & Schuster described Sen. Hawley’s book as championing the idea that ‘big tech companies — Facebook, Google, Amazon, and Apple — represent the gravest threat to American liberty since the monopolies of the Gilded Age, and proposes a democratic, hopeful path forward.’”

So Hawley’s book warning of the dangers of Big Tech was canceled; 2021 has morphed into 1984. “Simon & Schuster decided to drop the publication” even though there’s a contract for it, after what Simon & Schuster “called the ‘deadly insurrection’ that took place at the Capitol Wednesday. Sen. Hawley’s book, The Tyranny of Big Tech, had been scheduled to go on sale this June,” six months from now. “In a statement Thursday, the publisher, a unit of ViacomCBS Inc., ‘We did not come to this decision lightly.’”
