As any good conservative (or bad liberal) will remind you, cancel culture is a terrible thing.
It’s an oppressive assault on an individual’s right to free speech and expression, can stifle and discourage the open exchange of thoughts and ideas, and because cases are tried by online mobs in the court of public opinion, there are no clear rules and guidelines on what’s an actual “cancellable” offense.
Knowing that, I’m sure conservatives in the Ardmore area are outraged by the decision of Starlite Club – a darn tootin’ dive and dance club that may be located in a former airplane hangar – to stop showing professional sports on TV over anthem protests.
Check this out:
Boy, that sucks for sports. Just as Neilson starts incorporating bars into its rating system to help prop up falling ratings in the broadcast media, some hillbilly bar in Ardmore goes out and cancels on them. Obviously, someone needs to gather the commissioners of all the North American sports leagues and get them on this crisis immediately.
I’m not as up-to-date on the Ardmore bar scene as I’d like to be, so I scrolled through the Starlight’s Club’s to Facebook to see how this bombshell stance will affect their clientele and events. Most of the posts had to do with pool league, and the only photos of patrons I could find were of all Halloween costume contests:
Yeah, I think the Starlite, and America’s professional sports leagues, will be fine. Best of luck to them all.
