Is any right winger pre-cancelled, in other words?
you're not the only person I've seen make this statement, and with due respect, it's not just unhelpful but I think counterproductiveWhite people have abandoned any pretence of legitimacy as leaders, and by being the only group to rise up against the obvious tryranny, BLM have claimed the title. The whites should releinquish power for say 400 years to even things out
for social ostracism to work target has to care within some degree about the same things as the people doing the cancelling, so yesI was thinking that (this is obvious really) if you're on the right already you can't be cancelled, can you?
Yes. They accuse people of being too liberal all the time. A load of Republicans get called RINO (Republican In Name Only) and told to get out of the party by the Trump supporters. There are also women and minorities who get torrents of abuse or even chased out for being women or minorities, e.g. the women of the alt-right movement.Or are the right cancelling people too?

the legitimacy thing partially has validity - certainly I don't want to undermine the self-determination of black people in their own liberation (long history there), nor do white allies have the greatest track record
otoh the relinquishing power bit is bad. no one group should be in power. black people in power would (and have, where they've had it) made just much a hash of it as anyone else. I'm aware it's not really a serious suggestion, but it is exactly the kind of thing that gives ammunition to right-wing fantasies going back to Reconstruction at least.
it's easy to get him back we just have to start having interesting energised conversations. then the place becomes irresistable. if its low energy then no one gets sucked into the vortex. like you say the crucial thing is people that care and make an effort. you get out what you put in like your primary school teacher told youHe's not gone gone is he? I like him. Smart, good taste, cared and put effort in
