The New York Post reported yesterday that the PGA of America has voted to move The 2022 PGA Championship, which had been scheduled since 2014 to be played at Trump National in Bedminster. The decision was the result of the riots in Washington on January 6th.
The PGA, as a private organization, has the right to move anything anywhere, but this is significant because it illustrates what mob rule can do. The cancel culture is one aspect of mob rule.
The article reports:
This isn’t the first time professional golf has canceled an event scheduled for a Trump property. In 2015, the Grand Slam of Golf at Trump National Los Angeles Golf Club was canceled after he made a comment about Mexican immigrants. The PGA Tour, too, moved its annual WGC event that was played at Doral in South Florida, which Trump purchased in 2012, to Mexico in 2017.
Trump Bedminster hosted the 2017 U.S. Women’s Open.
According to an ABC News report, the Trump Organization responded to the PGA of America’s decision with this statement: “We have had a beautiful partnership with the PGA of America and are incredibly disappointed with their decision. This is a breach of a binding contract and they have no right to terminate the agreement.’’
Yes, it’s a private organization and has the right to make that decision, but what does this mean for the future of freedom in America? There is absolutely no evidence of any connection between the riot in Washington and President Trump. Last summer when riots happened in various parts of the country and the Democrats said they were justified, were there any repercussions for those statements? When Maxine Waters told supporters to harass Trump administration workers or supporters in public places, was there any problem?
The cancel culture is dangerous. It is mob rule. Those supporting it will be very surprised when sometime in the future it turns on them.
