The poll also found that a majority of its participants are afraid to express their opinions online out of fear of being fired. Is “cancel culture” a threat to our freedoms?

Blaming the Victim... It's not just police who are being vilified by woke nation these days. Victims are also now being blamed for allowing crimes to happen. In the nation’s Capital, Mayor Muriel Bowser shamed a dead Uber Eats driver who did not do enough to prevent two teenage girls from carjacking him, stealing his car, and ultimately killing him in a car crash. In Minnesota, a rape conviction was overturned because the victim had been drinking. Has woke justice gone too far?

Dr. Doom and the CDC. This week during a White House COVID briefing the Director of the CDC, Dr. Rochelle Walensky expressed feeling of “impending doom” after seeing increases in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths over the past week. Walensky went on to say the latest surge has caused her to be “scared”. Is this political theater or is there real reason to believe we’re “doomed”? Tufts Medical Center Infectious Disease Doctor Shira Doron joins Dan to discuss.
