EDITORIAL COMMENT
A man finds out getting canceled by his community is as easy as the stroke of a pen or even by personal declaration and executive powers. No due process is forthcoming and none will be offered. This is the story of a Man who's been relegated to obsolescence. The story of a man that for standing up for freedom has his taken from him. This Man, Joseph Donovan Purdy, is collateral damage in a cultural war of thought policing. The wrong think he has been labeled with is not even his own. The wrong think he is associated with is a mere caricature...a straw man. It is not and has never been based in reality.
At the Iowa City farmers market Joe and I were threatened and intimidated by a young man the city of Iowa City calls a protester, then punished for reporting the crime to Market staff. Market staff declined to call police and declared they had no interest in restricting this kind of behavior if directed at us and only us. The city has refused to discuss the matter with Mr. Purdy. The police are not seriously investigating even though Joe gave them a picture of the man. When city attorney Sue Dulek was shown the picture she averted her eyes. The collusion here is obvious.
With few to no options for redress Joe began a campaign of public protest only to be further demonized and abused by the city and the public. On a visit to the Daily Iowan to ask for some coverage campus police were called and police proceeded to intimidate with an audience of gawking hecklers. This is the typical closed minded reactionary mindset of our society today. To accuse and never substantiate and never allow the accused any voice has become the norm. The media won't touch Joe's story of repression, it punches the ticket to too many taboo topics. His story breaks the PC cancel culture narrative of justified repression of thought.
The City Of Iowa City has a 40 foot tall mural on a parking ramp urging citizens to “weaponize” their privilege against “racism” or whatever their “leaders” turn them on next. The city government is engaged in incitement to violence then denies protection to those that violence is directed at . City attorney Sue Dulek admitted that they would not allow a farmers market vendor of any other race or creed to be “protested” in this way. The city had in 2017, and again now, an obligation to protect me from this abuse and they declined to do so, with prejudice.
This circumstance we find ourselves in is systemic and cultural, thought control by mass agreement and community enforcement by “free speech has consequences” cancel culture. The primary target(not exclusively, there's Ye) of this system and the culture are designs to bully Whites into submission if they protest even mildly in favor of White Americans. Whites as a group are never mentioned by name unless in a negative way. Our experience with the Farmers Market, The City and the community is a microcosm of a broader mental “disease”, for lack of a better term. When the AP standards decline to capitalize White in reference to the White race you know we have a two class system of Whites, who do not merit recognition, and everyone else.
In a liberal society, if we wish it to remain liberal, we must allow the exploration of every avenue of thought and consideration. Nothing should be off limits for discussion. One cannot “protest” an individual for Wrong Think and defame them in public and call it equal rights. The city of Iowa City calling harassment and intimidation of Joe and I at the Farmers Market “protesting” is a lie on it's face. The further retaliations of Joe through executive powers and police force are illiberal and should be called such. The City of Iowa City and Iowa City parks and rec have engaged in a systemic persecution and “canceling” of Joe for merely associating with a friend that has been deemed an untouchable class.
This is a story that needs telling. This is a circumstance that exposes PC(repressive tolerance) cancel culture for what it is...Marxism and totalitarian repression. We can't engage in repression of speech and thought and call ourselves a liberal democracy. These things cannot coexist.

Anyone know this guy? He hired me for a job then acted like a weird creep while we were trying to repair his house windows. It got so creepy we had to pack up and get off the job.
The kind and tolerant faces of the U of I police.
1st amendment suppression? ...or just chasing out the riff raff?
Thank you to Grace Smith at The Daily Iowan for the great write up on our community! None of this would be possible without our actors and their hard work 💀
