Today’s hyper-sensitive society renders everything a micro-aggression. For many liberals, being offended is a way of life.

Cancel culture and social pressures have bullied far too many people into apologizing for comments and behaviors where apologies were unwarranted. The correct response to this perpetually offended crowd is fewer apologies, not more.

The solution to apology-obsessed leftist rage is to be unapologetic.

So what does it mean to be unapologetic?

Being unapologetic does not mean callousness for its own sake. We all make mistakes.

Apologies are righteous when appropriate. Being unapologetic means rejecting any need to make inappropriate apologies.

Guilty people should apologize. The innocent should remain unapologetic.

Being unapologetic means owing no apology to cancel or consequence culture for merely existing. Unabashedly free Americans with rock-solid conservative values rarely have to apologize.

Being unapologetic means not joining the cult.

Cultists wear “I’m vaccinated” necklaces as an apostle of vaccine messiahs and crazed leftists. Cultist New York Governor Kathy Hochul said "God is telling you to get vaccinated."

Cultists celebrate the vengeful firing of Navy SEALs for refusing the jab as President Biden devastates our 2,450 active-duty elite force. Cultists savor firing thousands of teachers and hospital workers while allowing 15,000 Haitians across our now open border.

Being unapologetic is big, honest and bold like America herself. It’s America’s charter of negative liberties in our Constitution endowed by our loving Creator.

It’s taking the high road. It’s being your best, honest, hardworking, authentic, bold self. It’s trusting this great American life (with all its risks) without shame.

The alternative is joining apologists backing a bold-faced liar who ran from our foreign enemy and left Americans to die.

Being unapologetic is supporting equal opportunity (not equal outcomes) spiritually, mentally, financially, philosophically and morally.

It’s not remaining compliant and silent and worshipping a government that punishes Americans for asking questions.

Hacked emails proved Trump was right after all: Clinton campaign emails proved Clinton-Russia collusion. Americans rightly questioned the Russia hoax in the face of un-American censorship.

Unapologetic authentic Americans won’t shut up, comply, or be silenced when government comes with their needles, for your guns, at your children, or to shut down your businesses and take your money and rights. Being unapologetic means supporting innovative drug makers like Merck, who just developed a COVID pill that could render all vaccines irrelevant.

Being unapologetic means forcefully rejecting the twin liberal narratives that any speech a liberal disagrees with is hate speech, and therefore not free speech.

Just as Christ flipped a few tables in the temple (John 2:13-16), a healthy rebuke to having your rights violated is more than only OK. It's an obligation to reject violations thrust upon our American way of life by the cultural Marxists of our day.

Hate speech is the very speech deserving of the most protection. Liberals declared opposition to COVID vaccines, voting for Donald Trump and questioning climate activism as hate speech. When that fails, the inevitable race card is played, since nothing is more truly hateful than real racism.

Conversely, declaring something good supposedly makes it impossible to hate.

Wrong. We can hate what is bad even when dressed up as good for us by big government.

Hate, the necessary shadow side of love, is at the heart of free speech. Nobody is allowed under the Constitution to instigate violence or riots. This includes BLM and Antifa.

Yelling fire in a crowded theater and threatening to assassinate the president are prohibited and have stood the test of time. The rest is protected.

In an ideal world, nobody would be a racist, anti-Semite, or other kind of bigot. The real world is what it is.

British writer Evelyn Beatrice Hall said it best when paraphrasing Voltaire: “I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” Social justice warriors including their violent Antifa contingent may wish to ponder what happens to them when somebody finally decides and understands that they are the true offenders.

The revolution always eats its own, just as all empires fall. When everyone has been conquered, turning inward is inevitable. Until that inevitable conclusion, we must know there is no safe space. We must accept an imperfect world with bad people saying bad things. “Toughen up, buttercup.”

The far worse alternative is a world where even one innocent person is wrongly shunned, jailed or killed over misunderstood innocent free speech.

Undocumented workers? I say illegal aliens. Workplace violence? I label it radical Islam. Handi-capable? I say handicapped. African-Americans? I call them blacks, just as Rev. Jesse Jackson agrees. You call them LGBTQIASANDEVERYOTHER ACRONYMINTHEBOOK.

I call them Dave or Bill or Janice or whatever first name they claim.

Stay Unapologetic — and free.
