The radical left is hellbent on tearing down all cultural norms.
Nothing is safe from being labeled as “problematic.”
Now the insane cancel mob is coming after one classic children’s book.
The leftist mobs of today resemble the mobs of the cultural revolution under Chairman Mao.
Tradition and societal norms are being destroyed by the minute, and too many people are afraid to speak out against it.
The latest person about to be thrown on the pyre is renowned children’s author Dr. Seuss.
A far-left activist group named Learning for Justice is pressuring school districts to distance themselves from Dr. Seuss’s wildly popular books because of “racial undertones.”
The Loudoun County Public School district in Virginia obliged and released the following statement:
“Realizing that many schools continue to celebrate ‘Read Across America Day’ in partial recognition of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, it is important for us to be cognizant of research that may challenge our practice in this regard…As we become more culturally responsive and racially conscious, all building leaders should know that in recent years there has been research revealing radical undertones in the books written and the illustrations drawn by Dr. Seuss.”
Learning for Justice used to operate under the name Teaching Tolerance, and had been accused of pushing radical social justice messages.
The group is an extension of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has morphed into a racket after fulfilling its original mandate of rooting out entrenched white surpemacist groups.
Now the SPLC is a slush fund with half a billion dollars in their coffers, which funds attacks on any person or group that challenges left-wing orthodoxy.
For example, British radio broadcaster Maajid Nawaz was labeled an anti-Islamic hate preacher by the SPLC even though Nawaz is a practicing Muslim who’s simply critical of the radical elements of the religion.
The SPLC was forced to pay a settlement to Nawaz for defamation.
Learning for Justice and other activist organizations have captured K-12 public education.
Many parents, even liberals in deep-blue areas, are deeply concerned about the radical curricula that’s being shoved down their children’s throats.
The radical left is picking off targets one by one, and each time an institution bends the knee, the left grows bolder.
Parents and non-woke teachers and administrators must stand up to the encroachment of extremist views in education.
Dr. Seuss is small potatoes in comparison to their ultimate goal of absolute authority.
The radicals literally want to bend reality to their will.
That’s why there was a recent push to perpetuate the idea that two plus two can equal five.
The left hates the idea of objectivity itself.
Because if there is an objective truth, their ideas quickly fall apart when reality sets in.
There are already activist groups propagating the concept of “equitable math,” encompassing the belief that there is no one right answer.
Some school districts are eliminating grades altogether.
This is pure madness, but it’s being mainstreamed because average citizens are too afraid to speak up.
The problem will only get worse unless more individuals stand up to the mob.
