In recent years, the culture of allegations of sexual assault, racism, sexism and more have shown the public that our favorite celebs, athletes, or politicians may not be as perfect as we think they are. Who is on the cancellation list though?
According to Twitter, the next politician on the list to be canceled on social media appears to be Ohio Senator Jim Jordan. However, what problem has this politician done and why is the Twitterverse so against him?

Calls cancel culture
A major reason Jim Jordan is currently being canceled by Twitter is not just because of his far-right views, but also because he has been incredibly vocal about his stance against the cancellation culture in the past.
While discussing the former president Donald Trump’s possible second charge In the days leading up to current President Joe Biden’s inauguration, Jim Jordan described the incident by saying, “Democrats are going to impeach the president a second time a week before his term. Why? Politics and the fact that they want to cancel the president ”.
Jordan furiously added, “It’s not about impeachment anymore, it’s about canceling the president and anyone who disagrees with them … The cancellation culture will come for all of us”.
His disagreement with Trump’s second charge came days later ring-wing rioters stormed the Capitol in support of Donald Trump who led to five deaths. After the incident, Donald Trump released a video telling the violent protesters, “Go home. We love you. You are very special ”.
Jim Jordan also wrote on Twitter on January 9: “‘Unity and healing’ does not happen with the cancellation of culture and deposition ”. This tweet was so controversial that even famed comedian Seth Rogen responded, “Ha get f * cked fascist”.
– Pay back the police.
– Do not say the pledge of allegiance before the committee hearings.
– President Trump’s “Commission 1776” canceled.

That was far from the last time Jim Jordan was mentioned his stance against canceling culture, and in recent weeks, the politician has taken to Twitter to vigorously voice his beliefs. On February 4, he tweeted, “Republicans – First Amendment. Democrats – Cancel culture ”.
The next day, on February 5, Jim Jordan took to Twitter again to write: “Democrats: – Pay back the police. – Do not say the pledge of allegiance before the committee hearings. – The “Commission of 1776. Really?”
On February 21, Jim Jordan wrote again on Twitter, “Today’s Left: Senator Feinstein canceled because he wasn’t awake enough. Gina Carano canceled because she was too conservative. And now? They canceled Chris Harrison from The Bachelor because he wanted to hear both sides of the story. Who’s next?”
Jim Jordan worked to strip health insurance from more than 20 million Americans.
I support single payer health care because I know what it’s like not to be able to afford the care you need.
That’s why I run to #CancelJimJordan at the ballot box.

With such an outspoken and aggressive attitude on a controversial topic, it’s no surprise Twitter has now taken over the reins of Jim Jordan himself by trying to cancel him. Actor George Hahn wrote: “Since Jim Jordan decided that Ohio taxpayers are now paying him to whine about “ canceling culture, ” I think it would be so nice if this hashtag became a thing: #CancelJimJordan
While many tweets around the trending hashtag #CancelJimJordan have spoken out against his views on canceling culture and against his political beliefs, some have called him out for troubled past events that are now resurfacing from this hashtag.
Users on Twitter released a Washington Post article released last February in which Jim Jordan apparently cried and begged the Ohio state wrestling team doctor for whom he once coached not to confirm the reports of sexual abuse that occurred during his coaching.

The Washington Post reported that Adam DiSabato, the brother of Mike DiSabato, the person who exposed the abuse by Richard Strauss, explained in his testimony that after the news was leaked in July 2018, “Jim Jordan called me crying, crying, fawning on July 4, begging me to go against my brother, begging me, crying for half an hour. That’s the kind of coverups that take place here ”.
