Accidental satirists

I seem to recall that a decade ago, right-wing thinkers and commentators occupied themselves with trying to cancel the culture of minority groups, arguing for anything from clamping down on their ability to speak freely at universities to demanding that they be deported for said speech. It’s amusing, therefore, to hear the same voices today complaining about a cancel culture which threatens free speech. We must cancel the woke cancellers, they now insist, unable to appreciate any of their own bitter irony. They have become a parody of themselves.
