‘I’ll fight this cancel culture…see you in court’: Josh Hawley fires back after Simon & Schuster cancels book deal

Publishing giant Simon & Schuster announced Thursday it was canceling the publication of a book by Sen. Josh Hawley after hundreds of people stormed the U.S. Capitol Building a day earlier and the Missouri Republican objected to the Electoral College tally.

In a statement, the publishing house called the incident, which led to the death of one woman — an unarmed Air Force veteran from San Diego, who was shot and killed by police — and scores of arrests, “disturbing” and a “deadly insurrection.”

“We did not come to this decision lightly,” the statement said, according to NBC News. “As a publisher, it will always be our mission to amplify a variety of voices and viewpoints: at the same time, we take seriously our larger public responsibility as citizens, and cannot support Senator Hawley after his role in what became a dangerous threat to our democracy and freedom.”

Three other protesters who breached the Capitol Building also died of “medical emergencies,” officials said. And on Friday, Capitol Police said one of its officers who responded to the incursion died from injuries sustained in clashes with demonstrators. The department said Friday that the officer’s death is being investigated as a homicide.

  1. An open letter to Mr Hawley:
    I am glad to see that you are prepared to sue the publisher after being rejected for reasons of censorship. I trust that you will prevail and have enough common sense to not choose to ultimately enrich S&S but that you will take your book to a company that is run by patriotic American citizens.

    I know that you have presented yourself as a friend to America but I still have to ask; where was your outrage, where was your moral indignation when others were, and continue to be, censored for the same reason as you? Where have you been hiding that only now that your personal bank account is impacted that you decide to take action?
    Mr. Hawley, you may be more of a pro-America legislator than most but your actions tell me that your words are not to be trusted.
    I wish you well in your legal fight against S&S but you have allowed the courts to be corrupted to the point that you stand little chance of winning.
    I believe that you should either stand for America all the time or stand aside immediately.

    1. Thank you. I refined it lightly and re-posted at the source article. We all need to speak out when there is still time to talk with our mouths and our minds. Too soon it may be time to let other things do the talking.
      Take care and stay safe.
