---QUOTATION--- Seriously? That's like the total opposite of a reaction I was expecting from you. Can you explain in more detail why the parents are at fault and the teenager is not?

Well, to me it seems the mother is providing neither guidance (such as teaching her children to be wary of cults), nor boundaries (such as telling her daughter not to force her cultist views on the rest of the family).
As a result, the teenage daughter has turned to her cultist friends for guidance and is now taking on the leadership responsibility in the family.
I wonder how the younger siblings deal with their bossy sister? The father seems absent too.
I'm not really following or agreeing with calling this a Cult.
Cult ( noun )
- a system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object. "the cult of St. Olaf"
- a relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or sinister. "a network of Satan-worshiping cults"
- a misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing.
"a cult of personality surrounding the leaders"
Cancel Culture is not worshipping a figure or object. It's not religious or a small group of people doing something strange or sinister. It's not about admiring a person or a thing.
Cancel Culture is a popular and wide spread phenomenon, especially among young people where they have an agenda of Political Correctness and those that don't follow, believe or refuse to participate, are ostracized.
It's political in nature and not religious or cultish. Generation Z and Millennials like to look back in history and ignore what was common or feasible at the time, and retroactively pass judgement that anything in the past should should now conform to their current day norms and beliefs.
I don't find that it's the parent's fault at all. You can't dictate to your kids what political beliefs they should follow and ignore among their peers. That action only makes them want to do the opposite of your intent. Youthful rebellion so to speak.
If I was the parent, I would simply say you can't participate in the event or activity if your opinion or belief are going to spoil or ruin it for the rest of us, including the younger siblings who are devoid of a political agenda. Short of restricting access to social media, there's little else you can do.

I was thinking of the followers' blind allegiance to ever-changing doctrines. There are of course also sociopathic leaders of the cult, that are apparently not afraid of pushing new ideas. There can be political cults too, in my understanding it's a loosely defined term. But never mind.

You can teach them critical thinking, and encourage them to stand up to peer pressure. That way the child should be better prepared whenever it encounters unhealthy social groups.
Unfortunately this mother appears to already share the general leftist views of her daughter, and consequently just gets entangled in her daughter's ideological arguments instead of setting proper boundaries for the house tyrant.

Yes that sounds like the proper way to handle it.
In this case with the movie it appears the daughter started her lecturing about it only afterwards. If the daughter had known beforehand she would likely have forbidden the entire family from watching it.
This is laughable since just about everyone you meet or read about from Mexico ( North America ) Central America and South America, all have Spanish or Portuguese last names. Rarely ever do you meet or read about someone with an actual Indigenous name. The Spanish have never stopped their conquest of North America ( US ) as illegal immigration in the past three decades has been non-stop and relentless. They all like to pretend they are the original Indigenous people, but that is a fiction they use to attack white Anglo-Saxon Europeans. Who said the English-Spanish Wars were ever really over?
