Dr. Phil speaks out on the dangers of cancel culture and censorship
Phil McGraw spoke to Sean Hannity Tuesday to share his concern over the rise in cancelculture as well as speech censorship. He shared his belief that people go to universities to hear other people’s opinions – not necessarily to agree with them but to learn about their thoughts.
Dr. Phil also addressed that there are now surveys that say anywhere from 15 to 30% of students think it’s okay to yell down the speaker that you don’t agree with.
” “We are just getting to the stage that we are in an bubble and we don’t want to speak to anyone who doesn’t agree with us,” the talk show host admitted. He said, “If someone says anything that is offensive to us sensibilities then people go on an attack and they might choose a wrong term.”
Dr. Phil spoke with his audience and guests about canceled words and phrases.
Dr. Phil referred to a Cato Institute survey revealing how 62% of Americans are afraid to speak out for fear that they will say something they shouldn’t say. In a recent episode, Dr. Phil asked his audience how afraid they are to speak out on the show. He recalled how the audience looked like the “wave at Texas Stadium”. “
