Republicans try to cancel Dolly Parton

It was started by an article published by a conservative author, titled “There’s Nothing Loving About Dolly Parton’s False Gospel”. It starts with an executive summary, “Dolly’s right that all should be treated with love and kindness, but when we refuse to label sin a sin, we’re doing more harm than good.”

The article attacks Parton for condoning immoral sexual behavior, like refusing to judge LGBTQ+ people, saying “calling out sin by name isn’t judgement. It’s adhering to Scripture.” How hypocritical! Is it treating someone with love and kindness when one is condemning them for being gay?

Ironically, the conservative author mentioned above apologized for the article, saying “As I wrote in the piece, I love her and think she does some incredible things for the world. We all make poor choices in how to frame things sometimes. This was one of those moments for me! Dolly is one of the few people who is beloved by all and who loves all. The world is lucky to have her.”

However, and to nobody’s surprise, that didn’t stop Republicans from continuing to attack Parton. After all, for Republicans to win, they have to demonize and cancel everyone who is not a Trump supporter, including not just gays, but also Democrats in general.

I’m one of the many people who really likes Dolly Parton, her music, and her love and kindness for everyone. And I say this, despite the fact that I’m not usually a country music lover, and I’m definitely liberal in my views. Parton is a breath of fresh air for pretty much everyone, regardless of their political slant or social views. In fact, she might have been one of the last people who unified both sides of our fractured nation. I hope her cancelation isn’t the harbinger of the inevitability of civil war.

    It is way past time to cancel the Republican Party, but Americans are not politically savvy. We proved that by letting the now convicted felon slip through once before. NEVER AGAIN!
