How This Model Fights Cancel Culture, Defends Conservative Beliefs
By Movieguide® Staff
From fashion to Fox, model Elizabeth Pipko is making a statement – that those in the industry are not just cookie-cutter molds who spout off what they believe because another influencer told them so.
Instead, Pipko, who was a campaign staffer for former President Donald Trump, is standing up for her conservative beliefs in the fashion world.
“I’ve been canceled by multiple people in politics for either being too right-leaning or too left-leaning for people’s liking. I’ve been canceled in modeling obviously for other things and I’m going to fight that every day,” Pipko said.
“I will never let anyone cancel me or what I stand up for because I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. I will fight that to the death. I say, stand up for yourself and what you believe in, and don’t let anyone tell you what you can or can’t read, see, or watch because there’s something to learn from absolutely everything out there. Even the worst things in our world there is something to learn from,” she continued.
Pipko’s religious heritage plays a strong role in her personal political convictions. In her book, Finding My Place, Pipko details her family’s escape from the Soviet Union and what it’s like to grow up as a first-generation Jewish immigrant in the United States.
Now, she wants to share that passion with others and founded The Exodus Movement to encourage Jews to “reject the hypocrisy, anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism of the rising far left.”
But don’t be so quick to slap a label on Pipko.
“For me, labels have been nothing but a hindrance. I don’t understand why people are so obsessed with them. I think it’s dangerous and the two-party system encourages those labels for young people,” Pipko said.
“I don’t stand for anything except decency…I don’t want this label of ‘I’m the Republican,’ ‘the conservative one,’ or whatever it is people want to label me as because that comes with a bunch of people thinking that they know how I stand on certain issues,” Pipko said. “I just never want to be part of that again.”
Instead, the model champions unity.
“I would love to see some kind of unity on the way [to the 2024 presidential election] because I think you don’t realize the effect that your vote has until you turn around and realize your neighbors aren’t speaking to you later on. You’re allowed to have a husband, or a child, or a best friend who votes differently. You’re also allowed to stick to the same thing. All those things are ok. It’s the meaning behind the vote that matters a lot more than your actual vote or beliefs themselves,” Pipko said.
