Jim Jordan demands committee hearings on cancel culture, doesn’t say what he thinks Congress is supposed to do about it

Fox News: “The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee Jim Jordan on Monday is calling on Chairman Jerrold Nadler to hold a hearing to ‘address the scourge of cancel culture’ in the United States, amid what he called a ‘dangerous trend’ of ‘silencing and censoring certain political speech.’ In a letter to Nadler, D-N.Y., obtained by Fox News, Jordan, R-Ohio, said ‘the wave of cancel culture spreading the nation is a serious threat to fundamental free speech rights in the United States.’ ‘From newsrooms to college campuses to social media giants, we have seen a dangerous trend toward silencing and censoring certain political speech,’ Jordan wrote. ‘As the committee entrusted with upholding the Constitution and our fundamental liberties, our first full committee hearing for the 117th Congress must examine this cancel culture sweeping America.'”

“Jordan said the First Amendment, which ‘guarantees to all Americans the right to speak freely,’ has ‘allowed our country to develop and maintain a political discourse fueled by the free exchange of ideas.’ ‘This freedom has empowered risk-takers and innovators. It has shaped bold new ideas and given us a prosperous democracy,’ Jordan wrote. ‘Quite simply, it has made the United States the envy of the world.’ But Jordan said that in the current climate, ‘our shared commitment to free speech principles is eroding under demands for the censorship and silencing of certain speech.'”
