Recent targets of cancel culture such as Gina Carano of "The Mandalorian" are all but expected in Hollywood's regular purge of conservative figures. Comedian Bill Burr on a recent podcast, dubbed those of the woke mob are "just waiting, laying in the weeds" to ruin the next victim they disagree with politically.

Burr could not have been more correct.

Now, the left-wing mob has gone so far as to cancel one of the most influential authors in American Literature ever in Theodor Geisel, otherwise known as Dr. Seuss, on his birthday, no less.

Usually, the first week of March aims at celebrating American literature and Dr. Seuss, especially for his contributions to the education system through "Read Across America" Week.

For years, notable guests travel from class to class, reading books by Seuss to children to symbolize the importance of literacy to children in the education system.

This week, that celebration has taken a backseat to the mob coming after yet another historical figure.

Dr. Seuss is the same man lauded for inspiring generations of young writers, illustrators, and teachers in prioritizing how important it is to teach students creativeness and imagination when they are learning.

He has led students in our country's education system to being energized about going to class, inspired to be participative in reading, and motivated to pick up a book and start learning something new.

Alas, all of these critical educational lessons have been tossed aside for the sake of awarding a vast minority of the population a win in canceling one of the most beloved American authors ever.

Dr. Seuss himself championed being an active anti-racist individual.

While working for the New York newspaper PM, Geisel illustrated political cartoons such as depicting figures shoveling out trash from an Anti-Semitic wagon and satirizing Adolf Hitler during the country's involvement in World War II.

Geisel was instrumental in being anti-racist and criticizing the most notable white supremacist regime in world history.

Still, because those in the left-wing mob continue to nitpick pictures and figures from his books to cancel the man, he is viewed now from an entirely different perspective than he should be.

This week should be about championing Dr. Seuss, who was trite and right about his anti-racism and his passion for inspiring students of all ages to embrace the beautiful nature of English language arts.

Instead, now all you can find on an internet search during "Read Across America" Week is a dismal demonization of a man who has done more for education and society than the ones that are trying to cancel him had ever dreamed of.

Depicting Dr. Seuss as a racist is one of the most unbelievable attempts to create a caricature of the left yet.

Instead of concentrating on dangerous demagogues such as Governors Andrew Cuomo or Ralph Northam for their atrocities, the left-wing mob has instead decided to set their crosshairs on Dr. Seuss.

The next time anyone thinks about taking these people seriously, think of who they prioritize to go after every time, then reflect.

They are not after the common good. They are just after preconceived "wokeness."
