Cancel culture has existed on the Left at least since the 1970s...I wouldn't be surprised to hear of examples from the 19th century.

The Paranoid Style in American Politics
This article is a little liberal, but still has some significant insights. It mostly focuses on far right, and occasionally far-left instances of the paranoid style, but the paradigm applies extremely well to the current Russia obsession among liberals.
