On Jan. 7, one day after a horde of Donald Trump's supporters brazenly, disgracefully and illegally broke into the U.S. Capitol Building, Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor and former United Nations ambassador under Trump, rightfully called out the president for his unchecked, poisonous rhetoric during her remarks before the Republican National Committee's winter meeting.

Said Haley, in part: "President Trump has not always chosen the right words. He was wrong with his words in Charlottesville, and I told him so at the time. He was badly wrong with his words yesterday. And it wasn't just his words. His actions since Election Day will be judged harshly by history."

Nikki Haley chastises Trump and pleads with America: 'We must do better than this'

  Nikki Haley chastises Trump and pleads with America: 'We must do better than this' Nikki Haley, a potential 2024 front-runner for the GOP nomination, spoke at a Republican National Committee dinner in Florida late Thursday night following the riots, protests, and deaths that made Wednesday one of the most tumultuous days at the Capitol in recent history.

Haley is correct. Trump should - and will - be judged very harshly by history. The more one learns, the worse it looks for the president for a few more days.

But, on the heels of that necessary denunciation of Trump, Haley also warned of what might turn out to be a much more corrosive threat to the already unravelling fabric of our republic: the rise of censorship and the "cancel culture."

"They've demonstrated that they'll 'cancel' anyone who gets in their way," Haley said. "They want to shout down and shut up anyone who disagrees with them. They want to take control of the classroom, the boardroom, the media green room, and even the dining room table."

Since Haley's warning of the dangers of the cancel culture just nine days ago - nine days that feel like a lifetime - Big Tech has absolutely lowered the boom on Trump and a number of the personal circles that emanate out from his orbit. Twitter banned Trump permanently from the platform and Facebook suspended his account, as did YouTube and Snapchat and others.

Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports It appears owner Cal McNair acted quite erratically, disregarding the advice of the search firm he paid hundreds of thousands of dollars. The situation is even more bizarre than that though, as he had apparently already offered the job to Steelers exec Omar Khan before changing his mind at the last minute and pivoting to Caserio, a source told Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com.

Nikki Haley calls Jared Kushner a 'hidden genius' after resignation. In writing about the Kelly and Tillerson argued that cutting aid could lead to violence, greater threats to Israel, loss of US Trump gave Haley a warm sendoff last fall, while Kelly's departure was announced in chillier terms weeks later.

As soon as Twitter banned Trump, Haley jumped right back into the conversation by - ironically - tweeting: "Silencing people, not to mention the President of the US, is what happens in China not our country. #Unbelievable."

At the moment, there is clearly a sense of unbridled euphoria coursing through many on the left, who, because of that treacherous invasion of the Capitol, have been able to enact censorship and cancel culture measures - not only against the Trump, but others whom they feel aided or abetted him in any way.

But calmer heads should recognize that there is an increasing sense of "blood running cold" foreboding within many Americans - including, probably, some on the left - as a growing number of companies and liberal-leaning power centers are able to so quickly silence those whom they consider the opposition.

Fact check: Video shows Trump family in tent before Jan. 6 rally

  Fact check: Video shows Trump family in tent before Jan. 6 rally A video of the Trump family in a tent was taken prior to the president's Jan. 6 speech, not during the Capitol riot, as claimed by social media posts.The viral video, taken by Donald Trump Jr., according to CNBC, has been posted to Facebook by the page Fire Trump 2020 alongside the claim that the Trump family was allegedly "enjoying" the assault on the Capitol while it took place.

Much of President Obama’s final State of the Union address was an implicit rebuke of the angry, nativist forces that have propelled Donald Trump to the top of nearly every Republican presidential primary poll. To be sure, Haley hit the usual marks in her response.

Who granted these arbiters such power? What words or actions could they next deem unacceptable and worthy of silencing or punishment? Who is next on their list? Where does it stop?

In the United States, can those who don't like the opinions or ideologies of others suddenly - and even permanently - prevent them from having a website, from distributing an app, from meeting their payroll, or, all rolled in together, from having a livelihood to feed and sustain themselves and their families?

Said the New York Post (which itself was banned from Twitter for its investigative journalism on Hunter Biden), with regard to Twitter banning Trump: "Some of Trump's tweets were untrue and incendiary, but so are the Ayatollah Khamenei's. His account is still up. The difference is Twitter is run by American liberals, who only really police one type of person, of one political persuasion."

As Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz recently noted: "You have to be willing to support the free speech of your enemies. ... The cancel culture is a direct frontal attack not only on freedom of speech; ... it cancels due process. It doesn't matter if you are innocent or guilty."

Big-Tech and other companies will try to pile-drive Trump Inc. out of existence via censorship, de-platforming and blacklisting. Liberal actor Bryan Cranston put his finger on the crux of the overall cancel culture threat, during a recent interview with The Associated Press: "We live in this 'cancel culture' of people erring and doing wrong, either on purpose or by accident. And there is less forgiveness in our world. ... I think our societies have been harder and less understanding, less tolerant, less forgiving. ... I think we need to take a second look at that, and exhale, and realize that asking forgiveness and receiving forgiveness are not weaknesses but are human strengths."

Crime is crime, and those who invaded the Capitol - and those who either incited them or aided them in any way - should face the full brunt of the law. That said, the blanket censorship, de-platforming and blacklisting of fellow Americans as a form of political retribution threatens us all.

In four days, Joe Biden will be our president and Kamala Harris, our vice president. As an American, I want them to lead and to succeed. Hopefully, part of their leadership will be to give voice to Cranston's observation that "asking forgiveness and receiving forgiveness are not weaknesses but are human strengths."
