We write a lot here about cancel culture and how it will greatly contribute to the downfall of American society as we know it if more people don’t take notice of it, stand up, and fight back against it.
Fortunately, there are a lot of people in this country who are willing to put in the work to make it so that cancellation attempts are more the exception than the rule.
We saw that this week when the popular “Libs of TikTok” account came under attack from the Washington Post and their “technology reporter” Taylor Lorenz, who thought that in outing the person behind LoTT via doxxing and a heavy reliance on dubious “information” supplied by the liberal hacks at Media Matters and German-government-funded “open source projects” that they could effectively cancel the account.
Except it all backfired pretty quickly. As we previously reported, not only did LoTT not go quietly into the night, but the account exploded with new followers in a relatively short amount of time. In just one day, they accumulated over new 125,000 followers. As of this writing, they now have over 307,000 new followers and counting, and they are closing in on a million total followers:
I don’t think anything better sums up the commitment to incompetence of modern “journalism” than the Washington Post trying to bring down a Twitter account by hypocritically doxxing the owner, then seeing that account add 300,000 followers in 2+ days
Just a complete masterpiece

Their follower count as it stands now is 939,700. I anticipate they’ll hit over a million this weekend.
In addition to picking up hundreds of thousands of new followers who will be treated each day to LoTT’s continued exposure of radical leftist educators who use TikTok to openly brag about the indoctrination tactics they use on young children in public school classrooms, LoTT’s ability to do what she does best will be made possible in part thanks to Seth Dillon, the CEO of the conservative satire site “The Babylon Bee,” which has also been subjected to repeated attempts by Big Tech and Big Media at cancellation.
Dillon announced a personal deal he made with LoTT Tuesday:
The Babylon Bee didn’t do a deal with her. The Bee is a satire publication. You know, like the Washington Post. I did a deal with her personally.

Also, Libs of TikTok recently started a Substack page, which now boasts “thousands of paid subscribers.” You can learn more about how to subscribe and support the page here:
Lots of people have been asking how they can support me. I started a substack & will be posting some exclusive content for subscribers there. It’s the best way to lend support and stay connected if I get banned from social media. I will never be silenced! https://t.co/WLwnY4m2bH

Substack is a platform that has made clear in no uncertain terms that they support the open exchange of ideas, including the supposedly “controversial” ones similar platforms like YouTube, FB, Twitter, and the like seek to suppress.
Though LoTT has thankfully been able to turn lemons into lemonade, the Washington Post still shouldn’t be let off the hook for what they tried to do. Readers should continue to voice their opinions to the paper, letting them respectfully but firmly know just how badly they screwed up.
