Mooney Fights Back Against Cancel Culture

The Journal

On Tuesday, March 2 we saw President Biden leave Dr. Seuss out of his National Read Across America Day proclamation. The holiday has coincided with the author’s birthday since its establishment in 1998. On that same day, it was announced that six of his books would no longer published.

Congressman Alex Mooney gave a brief speech that day in Congress regarding the “cancellation” of Dr. Seuss. I couldn’t agree more with his statements. Congressman Mooney cleverly compared the story of How the Grinch Stole Christmas to how Democrats are attempting to steal the gift of Suess’ work from children across America.

Not only is Dr. Seuss the most famous children’s author of all time, but his works have helped generations of Americans learn that reading can be enjoyable and fun. We will be doing ourselves a disservice by not exposing our youth to the genius of Suess’ work. Cancel culture is erasing history by judging those of the past against the standards we have today, and if left unchecked, it will dismantle our nation’s culture completely.

Thankfully, we have people like Congressman Mooney who are willing to stand up to help try to stop this nonsense. We need more representatives like Congressman Mooney to fight for us and to stop left wing radicals derailing our country and our history.
