Hillary Clinton Had the Perfect Throwback for Republicans Who Keep Crying 'Cancel Culture'

Republicans continue to fume at the largely imagined "cancel culture" phenomenon, which many of them believe to be the greatest threat facing the United States today.

After the estate of children's author Dr. Seuss announced that it would be pulling six of his books from shelves due to their racist imagery, politicians and pundits alike scrambled to Fox News, claiming Democrats were actively destroying beloved American classics.

It was just the latest supposed victim of cancel culture, joining Mr. Potato Head and the Muppets.

But while Republicans insist that Democrats are obsessed with canceling every cultural mainstay in the country, they've frequently neglected the ways they participate in it themselves.

Former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton called attention to this in a recent tweet, referring to the GOP as the "party of 'Freedom Fries'."

For those unfamiliar, the term "Freedom Fries" emerged after France refused to support the United States' invasion of Iraq—the start of the very war Republicans now pretend to have been against—in 2003.

A small restaurant in North Carolina renamed the French Fries on its menu "Freedom Fries" instead. The idea quickly took off among Republican circles, with GOP representatives changing the names of French fries and French toast accordingly on the menu in the Capitol cafeteria.

It was just one instance when the Republican party led the charge to "cancel" something completely innocuous.

People largely agreed with Clinton's assessment of their hypocrisy.

She wasn't the only one to call them out.

Other people and entities canceled by Republicans include The Chicks, Colin Kaepernick, Beyoncé, Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY), the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT), and more.

Nikki Haley's Blunt 'Election' Prediction Comes Back To Haunt Trump After Biden Drops Out

Earlier this year, South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Haley made a blunt prediction about which political party would win this year's election, a statement that has garnered more attention since President Joe Biden dropped out of the 2024 race and endorsed Vice President Kamala Harris.

At 81, Biden faced increasing concerns within his party about his age and capacity to serve another term, along with fears of a potential loss to former President Donald Trump—who is 78—in November. In his announcement, Biden backed Harris as the Democratic nominee to replace him, calling it "the best decision I’ve made."
