You might think that JK Rowling is a far-left liberal, but she is apparently anti-woke.
Specifically, JK Rowling supports trans people, but she believes in common sense:
A man is a man.
And a woman is a woman.
If people want to believe otherwise, then that’s their right.
And JK Rowling has the right to express her opinion.
But because of her opinion, she has been CANCELED by the radical left!
Because she is allegedly anti-trans for believing in common sense.
Well, JK Rowling got canceled yet again.
The Guardian ran a poll for it’s 2021 person of the year.
JK Rowling dominated the poll.
So what happened?
The Guardian decided to CANCEL its 2021 person of the year!
More tomorrow, but the @guardian did a poll on Person of the Year. JK Rowling was the runaway winner.
They've pulled it like @GMB
when they got the wrong results.

I love the way the original cast from the Harry Potter films say ‘they are a family!’ How can they say that when they have given the impression that they have ‘binned’ their ‘Mum!’ – JK Rowling!

While it’s funny watching the Left eat their own, I’m not going to lie:
Part of me feels bad for JK Rowling.
She was a celebrated author and feminist.
Now, she has been canceled by the very people she single-handedly turned into celebrities.
According to the Daily Wire:
Readers of the British newspaper, The Guardian, are accusing the outlet of deactivating an online poll that asked readers to vote on “Person of the Year” after it became apparent that J.K. Rowling would handily win.
“Tell us: who is your 2021 person of the year?” ran the headline, posted on Dec. 15, with the subtitle, “Time Magazine chose billionaire Tesla boss Elon Musk – but who would be your choice?” A short time later, when Rowling was far and away in the lead, the voting form disappeared, as did the results. A message in small print stated, “This form has been deactivated and is closed to any further submissions.”
Rowling has been at the center of numerous cancel culture storms this year for her refusal to deny the reality of biological sex. Earlier this month she stirred up controversy by mocking Scotland’s law enforcement policy that allows accused rapists to self-identify as female. “War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength. The Penised Individual Who Raped You Is a Woman,” she tweeted in reference to an article titled, “Absurdity’ of police logging rapists as women.”
As The Daily Wire previously reported, trans activists have retaliated against her refusal to capitulate to their agenda by threatening to send her pipe bombs and publishing her home address on social media. Showing the flair for dark humor that runs through her novels, the world’s richest author wryly joked that she’s received “so many death threats [she] could paper the house.”
The Guardian, which is generally known for being left-of-center, has so far provided no explanation for why it took its poll offline with Rowling firmly in the lead. But that didn’t stop the public from taking to social media to share their suspicions.
“JK Rowling was voted Guardian’s person of the year. Rather than acknowledge this, Guardian killed the competition. What utter cowardice, Guardian,” said one tweet that received nearly 3000 “likes.” Another, which more than 7000 people approved, read, “BREAKING: Guardian deactivated the poll on ‘Person of the Year 2021’ because JK Rowling was in the lead. Pathetic!”
Here’s where things get interesting.
HBO recently ran a Harry Potter reunion.
But they invited everyone except JK Rowling, who, you know, is the person who created the whole franchise…
How’s that for ridiculous?!
'We have fought for centuries to have our voices heard, as women, and now we are being cancelled.'

I reckon Alan Rickman would have stood by JK Rowling if he was still alive.

No half-measures. The View should hire JK Rowling.

Rather than take a stance and celebrate history, it appears as though HBO bowed to the radical left.
JK Rowling was the only notable person missing from the entire reunion.
The Los Angeles Times confirms:
When HBO announced its upcoming reunion special “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts,” the star-studded lineup did not include You-Know-Who.
In the weeks leading up to the highly anticipated program, streaming New Year’s Day on HBO Max, not a single teaser, trailer or poster has featured “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling, who has come under fire in recent years for repeatedly expressing anti-transgender views.
Despite her absence from HBO’s marketing campaign, however, Rowling does appear in the special, which samples footage from a 2019 interview with her. The archival clips of Rowling are fleeting, accounting for less than 30 seconds of the nearly two-hour-long show.
An HBO spokesperson told The Times that Rowling was invited to do a new interview but that producers felt the previously captured footage was adequate. HBO did not respond to requests for clarification as to whether Rowling declined the interview or filmed a new interview that producers then decided to leave out of the special. The special’s executive producer, Casey Patterson, was not available for comment.
Rowling is also name-checked throughout by “Harry Potter” filmmakers and cast members, several of whom have spoken out against Rowling’s transphobic remarks in the past.
Spotlighted most heavily in the production, of course, are Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), who have all made statements supporting the trans community in rebuke of Rowling’s comments.
“Transgender women are women,” Radcliffe said last year. “Any statement to the contrary erases the identity and dignity of transgender people and goes against all advice given by professional health care associations who have far more expertise on this subject matter than either [Rowling] or I.”
“Trans people are who they say they are and deserve to live their lives without being constantly questioned or told they aren’t who they say they are,” echoed Watson. “I want my trans followers to know that I … see you, respect you and love you for who you are.”
No mention is made of the Rowling controversy in the special, which first cuts to the British writer around the eight-minute mark, and then again about a minute later. While discussing the challenge of casting the titular boy wizard, Rowling recalls feeling “panicky” because “we just couldn’t find Harry” — until Radcliffe arrived.
The HBO Harry Potter special only exists because JK Rowling invented Harry Potter.
To not feature Rowling is the height of stupidity and the shallowness of cancel culture.
How low will they possibly go?!
