Brendan O'Neill on the double standards of "Cancel Culture"

One of the most over-used ways to criticise someone these days is to compare their views to those of Hitler and the Nazi party.

As Brendan O'Neill points out here, that makes it all the more strange that there has not been more fuss about the recent revelations that two journalists - one working for the BBC, one for CNN - actually did post on social media that they agreed with Hitler.

The BBC is investigating the case involving one of their journalists, so perhaps we should defer judgement until due process is complete. That is of course, a principle which has wider application.
