When you see what the far right doesn't mind censoring in the name of the fight against "wokism", calling the latter totalitarianism is like the pot calling the kettle black.


“Remember that while we love to talk about "cancel culture" when it comes to the left, conservatives don't hold back when it comes to expressing their offense. A comedian was fired from Canal+, along with one of his supporters, for parodying the hard-right editorial line of the channel CNews, owned by the same company. In August 2020, its founders Martin Page and Coline Pierré received an e-mail from a representative of the French Secretary of State for Gender Equality, urging them to withdraw Pauline Harmange's book "Moi les hommes, je les déteste" from the market, on pain of criminal prosecution. The Ligue des droits de l'homme and Mediapart got involved, and the book benefited greatly from this failed attempt at censorship: the author is now published by Editions du Seuil and translated into 17 languages.”
