In an interview just released on The Elliot Resnick Show, bestselling author Denise McAllister recounted her cancelation at the hands of popular media figure Ben Shapiro after she berated a journalist on Twitter for engaging in homosexual behavior.
“I appealed to Ben and I said, ‘Have you not been following the conflict?’…and Ben’s response was, ‘It doesn’t matter.’ … He had to protect his brand. He probably said ‘protect his brand’ five times in our dialogue behind the scenes.”
In 2019 – when the cancelation occurred – McAllister was a rising star in the conservative movement. A writer for The Daily Wire and The Federalist, she had just co-authored a bestselling book called Spygate: The Attempted Sabotage of Donald J. Trump along with Dan Bangino and Matt Palumbo. But Shapiro cut ties with her after she criticized the homosexual journalist.
“It’s just not cool right now among conservatives…to be anti-LGBT,” she told Resnick during the interview. “You sound like a prude, you sound like a really horrible person, you sound so judgmental, you sound so nasty, and you’re not really fun at parties.” And so conservatives focus on socialism and critical race theory rather than the left’s crusade against divine morality, she said.
The real problem, she told Resnick, is that “we want the approval of man more than we want the approval of G-d.” She warned that “in the name of tolerance we’re abandoning truth.”
McAllister no longer works as a journalist – she couldn’t find a paying job after being cut by The Daily Wire and The Federalist – and told Resnick that she fears for America’s future. “I don’t see a positive trajectory going forward unless there is a major change. There has to be a national repentance, there has to be people coming to their knees before G-d.”
Resnick – who served as chief editor of The Jewish Press from 2018-2021 and is rumored to be the victim of cancel culture himself for having entered the Capitol building in Washington, DC, on January 6, 2021 – began his podcast last month. Among his guests so far have been:
Laura Loomer (Florida congressional candidate), John Rosemond (a popular parenting expert), Rabbi Pinchas Wolhendler (co-founder of Toras Avigdor), Dr. Miriam Grossman (expert on the harms of transgenderism); Inna Vernikov (a Republican member of New York’s City Council), Nina Teicholz (author of The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat & Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet), and Dr. Gilbert Doctorow (a Russia expert and admirer of Vladimir Putin).
