Senator Josh Hawley has been the target of a ferocious campaign of personal and professional destruction from the rabid left as well as his own colleagues but it looks like he may be getting the last laugh.
Following the Missouri Republican’s principled stand to protect democracy by calling into question of the legitimacy of the election in blue states where fishy activity took place, he was savagely attacked by the media and corporations that wanted to cancel him.
The uproar over Hawley’s reluctance to go along to get along resulted in publishing house Simon & Schuster reneging on a deal to publish his upcoming book on the abuses by the unaccountable Silicon Valley tech oligarchs.
Senator Hawley had four words for the publisher “see you in court” and while the Twitter hate mob spiked the ball, their celebration was premature because he has now found another publisher for The Tyranny Of Big Tech.
Conservative firm Regnery has agreed to pick up Hawley’s book which will be published this spring, a blow to the cancel culture that is a cancer on the body politic.

Via The Federalist, “Josh Hawley Book On Big Tech Tyranny To Be Published Despite Cancellation Attempt”:
Sen. Josh Hawley’s highly anticipated book “The Tyranny of Big Tech” will be published after all. Washington-based Regnery Publishing has picked up the book and will publish it this spring.
Simon and Schuster canceled the book Jan. 7, quickly caving to a pressure campaign organized by leftist activists and making the Missouri Republican one of the highest-profile victims of cancel culture. The New York-based publishing conglomerate claimed, without evidence, that Hawley was complicit in the storming of the U.S. Capitol the day prior because of his leadership role in debating questions of election integrity in the 2020 election.
Simon and Schuster had not previously indicated to Hawley they would cancel him for objecting to the failure of some states to “follow their own election laws.”
Regnery Regnery President Thomas Spence issued the following statement:
“Regnery is proud to stand in the breach with him. And the warning in his book about censorship obviously couldn’t be more urgent”
Hawley along with Senator Ted Cruz of Texas who also took a stand in defense of election integrity have been denounced, harassed, and in an affront to the very concept of representative democracy, threatened by Democrats with expulsion from the Senate under the 14th Amendment as insurrectionists.
It is understandable that The Tyranny Of Big Tech would merit censorship after his colleagues who are in the pocket of Silicon Valley tech tyrants refused to vote in favor of the modification of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act that allows Facebook, Twitter, and Google to selectively police free speech on their platforms.
Hawley has been one of the only members of Congress who has consistently demanded reforms while others including Sen. Cruz just talk big and then do nothing which is a big reason why he has been attacked on Big Tech’s platforms.
It is a small win in the larger battle against the authoritarian fascists who hate us for our freedoms.
