CPAC Chair Matt Schlapp announced the debut of a new documentary combating cancel culture at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida.
The film titled “The Culture Killers: The Woke Wars” will showcase CPAC Chair Matt Schlapp and his wife and senior fellow Mercedes Schlapp joined by politicians and public figures to discuss “the rise and dangers of woke culture.”
Guest appearances include Republican Sens. Marsha Blackburn, Tom Cotton, and Ted Cruz. Donald Trump Jr. will also be featured in the film.
“Cancel culture is tearing America apart. People are being fired from jobs, expelled from schools, abused verbally, blacklisted and even harmed physically in the name of wokeness and this film calls out the perpetrators,” film director Jason Killian Meath said, according to the Washington Times.
Matt Schlapp told the news outlet that “it’s perfectly appropriate” to debut the documentary at Mar-a-Lago. If Trump “hadn’t come around,” Schlapp said, “I think a lot of us would still be cowering and assume that this was a phase that America was going through, and that none of us was powerful enough to kind of do anything to stop it.”
“And so you cower, and too many of us have been guilty of that and it’s because of him that I think a lot of us aren’t doing that,” he added.
Schlapp also took a jab at Disney. He wrote on Twitter, “We thought about a premier at Walt Disney World but Mar-A-Lago seemed more fitting.”
