"Cancelling Cancel Culture" - Part 6.

This is the sixth of a multi-part series entitled “Cancelling Cancel Culture”,  featuring the prolific writer Douglas Murray, British journalist, author, and commentator, whose latest book, “ The Madness of Crowds: Gender, Race and Identity”,  provides a ‘roadmap’ through the current cultural travails.

He is joined in the conversation by  British-American writer Charles C. W. Cooke,  senior writer for National Review, author and essayist Rod Dreher and French reporter Erik Tegnér.
“Cancelling Cancel Culture” is a gathering of significant voices from countries on both sides of the Atlantic, including Laurence Fox, Professor Frank Furedi and Douglas Murray from the U.K., Dr James Lindsay, Rod Dreher, Charles Cooke and Dave Rubin from the U.S., Eric Tegnér and Eric Zemmour from France, Professor Ryszard Legutko from Poland, Professor Josette Baer from Switzerland and pop star Ákos of Hungary.
All over the Western world, speakers who hold unpopular views that is, views unpopular with the Left are being told that they cannot speak.  Sometimes they are dismissed by the companies for which they work.  Sometimes their articles are accepted by newspapers but then returned because some journalists on the paper object.  Sometimes they are physically attacked and injured.  There’s been a reluctance to accept that these things are happening, but they are.
That’s why we’ve brought together this group of distinguished academics, journalists, and artists from several countries to discuss this disturbing new trend.
In Part Six, we feature Douglas Murray,  bestselling author, and journalist based in Britain. His books include The Sunday Times No. 1 bestseller ‘The Strange Death of Europe: Immigration, Identity and Islam’ (2017) and ‘The Madness of Crowds: Gender, Race and Identity. He has been Associate Editor at The Spectator magazine since 2012 and has written regularly there, as well as for other publications including The Wall Street JournalThe TimesThe Sunday TimesThe Sun, The Mail on Sunday and National Review. A regular guest on the BBC and other news channels, he has also spoken at numerous universities, parliaments, the O2 Arena and the White House.
