Cancel Culture Comes To Freshwater Bay Rotary Club

Cancel Culture Comes To Freshwater Bay Rotary Club, by David Archibald.

Rotary clubs are in need of speakers for their meetings, and I have a story to tell about cancer based on The Anticancer Garden in Australia. The date agreed was 8th July. Two days before I received an email:

“Good Afternoon David,

“Thank you for offering your services as a speaker, however, I am writing to advise that the Rotary Club of Freshwater Bay is unable to have you as a speaker on Wednesday, 8th July as otherwise advised.

“Rotary is non-political and we cannot be seen to be so in any capacity as the fourth part of the Object of Rotary is “The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.” …

“Di Collins, President/Secretary, RC Freshwater Bay”

That is hilarious. Suddenly the topics of cancer and gardening are political and divisive? So it seems. …

Surely the Freshwater Bay Rotary Club can’t be against my doing cancer research and writing a book on how to avoid cancer? Or could it be? Either way, this is how the left works to maintain the narrative — the narrative that is taking the country towards enormous pain and suffering.

People noticed this sort of thing in the 1960s too. Here is Bob Dylan with “Everybody Must Get Stoned”:

Well, they’ll stone ya when you’re trying to be so good
They’ll stone ya just a-like they said they would
They’ll stone ya when you’re tryin’ to go home
Then they’ll stone ya when you’re there all alone

But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned
