American Zionists are to blame for pioneering cancel culture, a British professor claims in a new article. Under the headline “The Spectre of Totalitarianism,” the essay by Edward Skidelsky in the March 2021 issue of The Critic warns against “the new intolerance,” the onslaught of what the article calls “the ‘woke’ left.” The article attracted positive attention from some prominent public intellectuals. “A powerful essay,” tweeted Niall Ferguson, a senior fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution. “This is excellent,” said Adrian Wooldridge, political editor of The Economist. Somewhat disturbingly, though, the article traces the origins of cancel culture to the actions of pro-Israel advocates.
